What The Hell Is “Testicle Tanning”?

It is the weekend and FYI is everywhere (at least on this  blog)….just because I believe my readers need to know.

Everybody’s favorite idiot, at least in the news arena is Tucker Carlson….his latest diatribe is all about ‘testicle tanning’

I bet you are scratching your head about now.

“Testicle tanning” has been trending on Twitter since it was highlighted in the latest promo for Tucker Carlson Originals, and Kid Rock is just as confused as you are.

Kid Rock joined Tucker Carlson on Friday night, after the host aired a trailer for the new season of his series, in which he interviewed physical trainer Andrew McGovern about the mental health benefits of shining a light on your testicles.

For those confused, and there are likely a lot of you, “testicle tanning” describes the practice of shining a UV light on one’s genitals in order to potentially increase testosterone.

“So, obviously, half the viewers right now are like ‘What?! Testicle tanning, that’s crazy!’” Carlson said during the clip. “But my view is, ok, testosterone levels have crashed and nobody says anything about it, that’s crazy, so why is it crazy to seek solutions?”

Carlson ended the interview by thanking McGovern for his “bravery” and “commitment to evidence-based science” while promoting new “bromeopathic” therapy. 

‘Testicle Tanning’ Trends on Twitter as Kid Rock Struggles to Understand the Why

But seriously folks, what could the benefits truly be?

There isn’t much research demonstrating that red light therapy has therapeutic benefits. The Cleveland Clinic notes that “the full effectiveness of red light therapy has yet to be determined.” We know even less about testicle tanning, specifically.

To get a better sense of what could happen when you zap your testicles with an infrared light machine, VICE called up Seth Cohen, a urologist and the director of the Sexual Dysfunction Program at NYU Langone Health. He weighed in on the alleged benefits of testicle tanning (spoiler: there probably aren’t any), and what could go wrong for those who try it (another spoiler: probably a lot).


From what I’ve read, it seems like this is used predominantly for wound care and skin care, which would make sense, because you’re shining this on your skin. But thinking that this is going to go deeper through the skin, through multiple layers, and then into testicles—I can’t see that working or happening. And, if it does, heat is harmful to the testicles. Prolonged heat can actually damage testicle tissue, lower sperm count, and be harmful for fertility. When we’re counseling our male patients on what to stay away from in terms of fertility preservation or family planning, we tell them to stay out of saunas, hot tubs, or any prolonged hot environment. I would include testicle tanning in that.

I know the Right wing is just full of crazy theories and such….but this one takes the cake.

But can these slugs get any stupider?

Could this be the answer to stop idiots from breeding?

When will this silly pack of morons start working to promote democracy and stop with junk science and silly theories?

“It Only Happened Once”

Another great thought for the “Can’t Fix Stupid” Files.

Once again it is from a member of Congress, my favorite MORON, Taylor-Green…..

It seems that she wants the country to stop talking about the failed coup of m06 January because it only happened once.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Sunday shared video of herself berating a reporter who asked about the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

The reporter was NBC’s Scott Wong, who quoted Greene in an article about Jan. 6.

“The American people are fed up with this over-dramatization of a riot that happened here at the Capitol one time,” Greene said, according to Wong. “They are sick and tired of Jan. 6 — it’s over, OK?”

On Sunday, Greene posted video of the brief interview and suggested Wong’s report was misleading.

But the video shared by Greene confirmed that the quote was accurate.

In the video, Greene seems to become upset after Wong asks if Republicans were wrong to boycott the Jan. 6 Committee.

“People are rotting in jail pre-trial because they have been arrested for it,” she says at one point. “Why don’t you go to the jail and visit those people? Everyone is being prosecuted that should be prosecuted. Why don’t you care about things that honestly care about instead of continuing on with this? OK?”


Only happened once?

9/11 only happened once….should we not talk about it any more?

The same for Pearl Harbor…..or the Alamo…..should we just forget it?

Everyday this moron proves just how stupid she real is and yet she can win an election…..what does that say about the people in her district?

She truly proves…..You Can’t Fix Stupid!

A Cure For Homelessness

The weekend begins I will be posting little as it is Spring and the garden needs attention….

There is at least one person that thinks that Hitler was a good example for a cure to homelessness.

A Republican lawmaker in Tennessee stunned his colleagues Wednesday when he shared the story of a homeless man who turned his life around—Adolf Hitler. During a debate on a bill banning homeless encampments on public property, State Sen. Frank Niceley told lawmakers he “wanted to give a little history on homelessness,” Fox17 reports. “In 1910 Hitler decided to live on the streets for a while,” he said. “So for two years Hitler lived on the streets and practiced his oratory and his body language and how to connect with the masses. And then went on to lead a life that got him in the history books.”

“So, a lot of these people it’s not a dead end. They can come out of these homeless camps and have a productive life, or in Hitler’s case a very unproductive life.” In Mein Kampf, the Nazi leader said his anti-Semitic and German nationalist view developed during the years he was homeless in Vienna. Critics said Niceley was wrong about history—Hitler ended up homeless through poverty, not choice—and wondered why on Earth Niceley would consider him an inspiring example, the Washington Post reports. “I’m going to have to apologize to the universe for this guy,” tweeted Democratic state Rep. Gloria Johnson.

The bill, which criminalizes camping along highways and exit ramps and makes it illegal to camp on public or state property, passed 22-10, with Niceley voting in favor. Critics argued that the bill criminalized homelessness itself, perpetuating the cycle of poverty, WCYB reports. As for Niceley, he has a long history of controversial remarks, the Post notes. In October, he said the shift of companies like Ford to the South shows the Civil War “is going on, and we’re winning.”

When I first read the title of this article my first thought was….yes he did….it was called concentration camps.

From The ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ Files

My series on the most moronic of our ‘elected’ officials…..and if I were giving a prize then Georgia’s Taylor-Green would be leading in the voting…

These are a few of her latest stupidity….

writing for Vanity Fair, columnist Bess Levin tore into Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) for her recent suggestion that women are properly understood as being owned by their husbands.

“At a gathering over the weekend, Greene took the time to suggest that women are defined by being property of men,” wrote Levin. “Responding to Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson’s refusal to be dragged into the GOP’s culture war du jour — during her confirmation hearing, Jackson declined to provide a definition of a woman for anti-trans Tennessee senator Marsha Blackburn — Greene told the Georgia Republican Assembly, ‘I’m going to tell you right now what is a woman. We came from Adam’s rib. God created us with his hands. We may be the weaker sex, we are the weaker sex, but we are our partner’s, our husband’s, wife.'”


This fool never shuts up……

In the growing and alarming trend of Republicans accusing their political opponents of being pedophiles, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has led the charge.

It’s not surprising that Greene would embrace allegations of pedophilia against her political opponents. Before she was elected to congress in 2020, Greene was a proud supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which holds that the Democrats are part of a “global cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles” (her words).

In the last month, charges of pedophilia, or “grooming,” seem to be everywhere. As Jonathan Chait explains in New York magazine, two stories are driving the increasingly prominent smear:

Marjorie Taylor Greene Goes on Alarming Rant Declaring Democrats ‘The Party of Pedophiles’

She went as far as accusing Romney and Collins of pedophilia….

ongresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has taken to accusing anyone who doesn’t agree with her as a pedophile — or a pedophile supporter. “Yes, Murkowski, Collins and Mitt Romney are pro-pedophile,” Georgia’s QAnon devotee said last night. Her proof? The Senators supported Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Greene, on a roll with pedophilia accusations, also said in the same rant, “The Democrats are the party of pedophiles.”

Without any basis for her dangerous rhetoric, the outrageous conspiracy theorist conveniently forgot to mention the real stuff that goes on with the Qnuts (like herself) on the far right, such as Donald Trump’s “I’m going to be dating her in 10 years” comment as he ogled a 10-year-old girl (see video at bottom), or the Federal investigation of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz for having a sexual relationship with an underage girl, or the Tennessee GOP’s push for a bill that allows old men to marry young girls of any age.

Marjorie Taylor Greene now calls anyone who doesn’t agree with her a pedophile

When is that coward of a Minority leader, a Speaker wannabe, going to step up grow some balls and handle these douche bags?

Running a close second to Green is a US Senator, Hawley from Missouri……

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was one of several Republican senators who either refused to define the word “woman” or struggled to come up with a definition.

Hawley’s initial definition excluded women who have had hysterectomies.

“Someone who can give birth to a child, a mother, is a woman,” Hawley told HuffPost. “Someone who has a uterus is a woman. It doesn’t seem that complicated to me.”


How scary.

The American people have put there trust in idiots like these two slugs and the future of the country hangs on their stupidity.

More From The ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ Files

Shall we take a break from Ukraine…..well if you insist.

The Right just cannot stop trying to out stupid the other members….this time it is not Taylor-Greene but another female member of the House, Lauren Boebert of Colorado…..she seems to think the the US needs to act more like Russia with our neighbors…..

Some Canadian politicians are unhappy with conservative firebrand Rep. Lauren Boebert, who compared the invasion of Ukraine to the way Canada cleared protesting truckers from its capital. The remarks came as the Colorado congresswoman was being interviewed by Fox Nation over the weekend at the CPAC convention, reports the Guardian. Boebert praised Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky for embodying what she called a “live free or die” philosophy. “I pray for Ukraine, and I wish them the best,” Boebert said. “But we also have neighbors to the north who need freedom and need to be liberated, and we need that right here at home, as well.” More:

  • “[It] is sad to hear you compare free & democratic Canada to the invasion of Ukraine,” tweeted Anthony Housefather, a Liberal member of Parliament, per the Washington Post. “If you would like to learn about Canada please reach out.” Another Liberal member of Parliament, Ryan Turnbull, tweeted that he was “speechless.”
  • Bruce Heyman, former US ambassador to Canada under President Obama, tweeted: “Reckless, dangerous and crosses every line of diplomacy and decency. Boebert would have been expelled from the
    @GOP before Trump but now the darling of CPAC.”
  • Boebert previously expressed strong support for the truckers’ demonstration, which began as a protest against vaccine mandates, notes Insider. “The Freedom Convoy is representative of a people’s yearning for freedom—something so many thought may have been all but lost to decadence,” she tweeted on Feb. 15. “I’m glad to see the will to fight for liberty is still alive and well!”


Since I wrote this draft Boebert made a bigger ass of herself at the SOTU…..

She and her idiot cohort Taylor-Green heckled Biden several times….with stupidity like ‘build the wall’…all in all they made complete asses of themselves.

Boebert is another of those far right idiots that came to DC to perform not to govern…..these people spend their time trying to out crazy each other.

I have seen nothing about her and the other ilk that says they want to govern and have the best interest of the nation at the heart of their stupidity.

They prove every time they open their mouths that ‘You cannot fix stupid”.

Closing Thought–25Feb22

Let’s take a break from the Ukraine situation…..

Another from the ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ files….

IST’as favorite idiot in Congress, Taylor-Greene, has struck again……

She has become all butt hurt because people think her crazy…..

Marjorie Taylor Greene recently appeared on InfoWars to complain about the fact that people treat her like she’s crazy, and her choice of platform probably didn’t help her case.

“It just bothers me so much. They treat me as if I’m some kind of crazy person – like I have 3 horns coming out of my head. But what they don’t understand is, they’re the ones that are crazy,” she said.


After whining on Infowars she then turns around and makes this statement…..

Marjorie Taylor Greene is finally discussing the difficulties she’s having in adjusting to a job in Congress. However, instead of crediting her belief in conspiracy theories and refusal to follow protocols in the House, she’s placing the blame on the culture of D.C., which she insists is communism.

In fact, as seen in the clip below, Greene is calling the nation’s Capital the “District of Communism,” and has renamed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as “Speaker Mask-Face,” as a reference to Pelosi’s support of policies that require masking in House Chambers. It’s the same rule that’s costing Greene a significant percentage of her Congressional salary, because she is being fined regularly for refusing to wear a face-covering.

WATCH: Marjorie Taylor Greene Says Congress Confuses Her Because Of All The Communism


She goes on a site that is dedicated to crazy to try and prove she is not crazy….that is a massive fail on her part.

You would think she would give her mouth a rest, right?  WRONG!

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) claimed this week that the United States “ended racism” but “now it’s back in the form of education.”

“There’s one thing good that came out of parents having to be at home with their kids,” Greene told a group of supporters in Polk County on Tuesday. “They found out about something called CRT. Critical race theory.”

Mention of the theory drew boos from the audience.

“Did you ever imagine after all the civil rights era and everything that’s happened in our country, how we ended racism and ended all these problems but now it’s back in the form of our education?”


Why is the GOP batcrap crazy over a subject that is only taught in law schools?

Two stupids for the price of one…..

I believe that she wakes up every morning thinking of how she can out stupid herself.

Every time Greene opens her mouth she proves that she is crazy….and never went to DC to govern but perform.

She continues to dominate the ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ files…..and proves the statement every time she regurgitates her ignorant rantings.

Closing Thought–11Feb22

From the ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ files…….

Our Congress has our share of idiots representing people and then we have Morons…..and one of the largest mental midgets is one Taylor-Greene from Georgia……

She has made many claims, outrageous claims, that it is getting hard to follow her gaffs…..now we have cold soup making her rhetoric…..

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s latest headline-making comment involves … cold tomato soup. The Republican congresswoman from Georgia on Wednesday ranted about “Nancy Pelosi’s gazpacho police spying on members of Congress” (see the clip here), leading many to guess that the word she was looking for was “Gestapo,” Germany’s Nazi-era secret police. She also made a reference to the jail in Washington, DC, as the “DC gulag,” a reference to Soviet-era labor camps.

Needless to say, the gazpacho jokes were rolling on Twitter, the Guardian reports. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s take: “At least she leads by example. She clearly banned all books from her house years ago.” Greene had been criticizing the subpoenas the House of Representatives’ January 6 committee has issued to those in former President Trump’s circle when she went on the rant, Insider reports. The “gulag” comment was a reference to alleged January 6 rioters being held in the DC jail. As for the “gazpacho” comment, there’s no evidence that either soup or members of the Capitol Police force are spying on lawmakers or doing any of the things Greene claimed.

She was talking specifically about an allegation from Rep. Troy Nehls, a Republican from Texas, who claimed Capitol Police entered his office without his knowledge in November and took pictures of confidential legislative products, NBC News reports. He says intelligence officers later visited him to ask about one of the items photographed. The Capitol Police chief denied the claim, saying Nehls’ door had been left open after hours and protocol was followed. “If a Member’s office is left open and unsecured, without anyone inside the office, USCP officers are directed to document that and secure the office to ensure nobody can wander in and steal or do anything else nefarious,” he explained. Officers later followed up with Nehls’ staff simply to determine no other action was needed, he added.

You just cannot make this stuff up.

Where do they find such idiots?

Just proves that if you have the cash you can run….even if you have no intention of governing.

So very true…..’you can’t fix stupid’!

Closing Thought–20Jan22

The stupidity has started already around the upcoming 2024 elections….right wing moronic ideas have lit a match for the 2024 elections….

Some of the more sillier ideas these slugs are promoting…..

A Biden-Trump rematch seems like a plausible bet for the 2024 race. And while a Trump candidacy isn’t a sure thing, headlines have surfaced recently suggesting that just as much uncertainty dogs the Democratic side. Examples:

  • Clinton again? An op-ed in the Wall Street Journal lays out a scenario in which Hillary Clinton would once again run for president. “Several circumstances—President Biden’s low approval rating, doubts over his capacity to run for re-election at 82, Vice President Kamala Harris’ unpopularity, and the absence of another strong Democrat to lead the ticket in 2024—have created a leadership vacuum in the party, which Mrs. Clinton viably could fill,” write Douglas E. Schoen and Andrew Stein.
  • No Harris? In the New York Times, Thomas Friedman makes the case for what would be another startling Democratic ticket: Biden-Cheney. As in, Republican Rep. Liz Cheney. Friedman argues that we’re in dire political times and in need of unprecedented action, and he draws a parallel to what recently happened in Israel. He quotes political scientist Steven Levitsky: “We should be ready to talk about Liz Cheney as part of a blow-your-mind Israeli-style fusion coalition with Democrats. It is a coalition that says: ‘There is only one overriding goal right now—that is saving our democratic system.'”
  • Um, no: At CNN, Chris Cillizza runs through the idea of Clinton running in 2024 and offers a point-by-point rebuttal. For example, the op-ed authors argue that Clinton has the perfect experience for the job, but “isn’t that what voters chose the current president for?” he asks. “Yes, yes it is. And while Clinton and Biden are not carbon copies of one another, their relevant experience is remarkably similar—long careers in the public policy space in Washington.” He points out that Clinton already has lost twice even with her long resume, and he doesn’t buy the idea that she’s sending signals that she’d be willing to run.
  • Um, no, II: At the Intelligencer blog, Ed Kiglore throws similar cold water on the Cheney idea. “Democrats are very likely to say thanks, but no thanks, to Friedman for the idea of submitting their party to some sort of unwieldy and unnatural coalition of national salvation, so long as there is the slightest hope of beating Trump the old-fashioned way,” he writes. Cheney does indeed deserve “great respect” for how she has defied Trump, and maybe something like an ambassadorship is a fitting reward should Biden win again. “But she has no business being at the top of the line of succession to a Democratic president.”
  • Or maybe … As long as people are tossing out wild ideas, the Fix blog of the Washington Post pitches some “far-fetched sleeper tickets” of its own. Some examples: Biden and Mary Trump, Michelle and Barack Obama, Biden and Dick Cheney, or Biden with Republican Govs. Larry Hogan of Maryland, Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, or Phil Scott of Vermont.

I am sure this is not the total extent of the stupidity that will be spread….but it had to start somewhere…..and here it is.

2022–From The ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ Files

Almost daily I hear something that just keeps reminding me the no matter how we try we just cannot fix stupid…..

A regular culprit from spreading Stupid is Rep. Taylor-Green and her newest rant is just as stupid as one might think…..

Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene expressed support for penalizing those who move from Democratic-controlled states to Republican-controlled states by temporarily stripping their right to vote or imposing an extra tax.

The idea, she said, would be possible in a “National Divorce scenario,” though Greene appeared to be musing about the idea rather than promoting a specific piece of legislation.

“After Democrat voters and big donors ruin a state like California, you would think it wise to stop them from doing it to another great state like Florida,” Greene said.

Pedro Gonzalez, an editor at Chronicles magazine with populist views, proposed a transplant penalty in response to a viral Twitter thread from a man moving from the Bay Area to Miami, Florida, who criticized California’s policies but was “apprehensive” about his destination’s “worse politics.”


She was not finished with her stupidity….another mouth open and stupidity flies out…..

Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Monday lashed out at “the Democrats” for what she said was a Covid-19 strategy that left white people without proper treatment.

Greene made her remarks on the Joe Pags Show after it was reported that the Biden administration will allow hospitals to use ethnicity when determining who is at “high risk” for severe illness. The “high risk” label allows a patient to more quickly qualify for monoclonal antibodies like sotrovimab.

Conservatives have criticized the policy as “racist.”


She opens her mouth and manure flies out.

MT-G is not alone as a batcrap crazy dirt bag….there is a candidate, GOP of course, that demonizes libraries…..

A key component to the rise of authoritarian movements is the hijacking of education, along with the widespread disdain for intellectualism and expertise.

Today’s Republican party has that in spades. Republican elected officials and political candidates have repeatedly demonized educators by painting teachers as radicals and encouraging citizens to intimidate school board officials. One Republican candidate, Steve Lynch, urged his supporters to gather “20 strong men” and forcibly remove school board members. Far-rig

ht Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance says professors are “the enemy,” despite his professor at Yale Law School convincing him to write the book that gave him a modicum of relevance in the first place.

And this week, right-wing congressional candidate Heidi St. John displayed a hatred for libraries that’s only rivaled by the fictional residents of Pawnee, Indiana.



Libraries are evil?

These GOPers keep talking and keep proving just how stupid they are….I guess the statement of “Can’t Fix Stupid” is one of the most prophetic statements uttered.

Vigilantes On Parade

Have you noticed in the past 10 years the amount of vigilantes hitting the streets has increased.

The individuals and groups that have been taking to the streets in the name of ‘freedom’….and the incidents of actual violence is increasing exponentially…..the most recent example is the trial of Rittenhouse….

The Wisconsin ruling clearing Kyle Rittenhouse on all charges for the killing of two Black Lives Matter activists looks to be a milestone moment for the rise of rightwing extremism in America. It’s not so much the details of this case and the spin that can be employed in interpreting the events that concerns me most. It’s the implications of the case, considering the larger political context and the threat of rising extremism.

A dangerous precedent has been set in this ruling, empowering vigilantes who believe they are deputized to enforce “the law” against perceived political enemies. Rittenhouse traveled to a city that he didn’t live in, to a state in which he is not a resident, while illegally possessing an assault rifle he had no right to wield, in the name of “protecting” property he didn’t own, in the process killing two men in violent altercations that would have been avoided entirely if Kenosha police had done their job, corralling vigilantes who looked to commit violence, and separating them from those engaged in protests or destruction of property. Even for those who are fixated on the property damage question, it’s difficult to defend Rittenhouse’s actions when he engaged in vigilante violence, with no training in dealing with conflict situations, and when responsibility for enforcing the law clearly falls on the police.

The Rittenhouse case shouldn’t be interpreted in a vacuum, as it occurred within a larger political environment in which other rightwing vigilantes seek to justify violence, and even murder, under the guise of “self-defense.” Consider, for example, the Ahmaud Arbery case in Georgia, where three white vigilantes stalked, cornered, and shot a black man who was jogging through a neighborhood – and away from them – under the false premise that he may have been responsible for a local burglary. There is no plausible scenario in which these three men can reasonably claim self-defense, when the altercation was entirely of their own initiation, when the man murdered was unarmed, and when he had nothing to do with the crime in question. And of course, there is the issue of implicit or explicit racial bias related to the defendants, which is also difficult to ignore in a country where research shows that assumptions of guilt related to violent crime are consistently racialized, with black men assumed to be the prime perpetrators in violent and other criminal acts. If the Arbery defendants successfully justify their actions as “self-defense,” then the courts will have effectively criminalized being black in America. An acquittal sends a message that white vigilantes can commit violence and murder at will against people of color who have the nerve to venture out into public, and with black men’s mere existence constituting a “threat” from which white people need “protection.”

Vigilantes on Parade: Rightwing Extremism and the Threat of National Implosion

All this does nothing to stop the social slide that has been developing over the last 25 years or so…..

None of this bode well for a orderly society and a stable nation.
