Sh*t happened 1/5/15: Bubba's back, Bondi changes stripes & body cams for Tampa cops


Is it Monday already? Let's run down the weekend in order to make ourselves feel better about that, shall we?

FRIDAY, JAN. 2

Bubba The Love Sponge Clem (whew!) teamed up with WingHouse to celebrate his return to local airwaves by offering "Bubba Style Wings." Double breaded and double sauced in WingHouse's Dallas sauce, eating "Bubba Style Wings" approximates the guilt most people feel when, knowing they shouldn't listen to Bubba's radio show, they go ahead and do it anyway.

SATURDAY, JAN. 3

Having apparently given up on her crusade to prevent same-sex marriage in Florida, Pam Bondi has dedicated her next term to fighting juvenile bullying in our state's schools. Bondi says her own experience oppressing and denying the pursuit of happiness to individuals and groups that don't conform to outdated social dogma makes her uniquely qualified for the job.

SUNDAY, JAN. 4

A photo of former vice presidential candidate and well-documented idiot Sarah Palin's 6-year-old son Trig standing on the family dog in order to reach the kitchen counter sparked a minor online outrage. Most of the commenters' outrage was directed specifically at once again being forced to acknowledge Palin's existence.

And finally, an $84K proposal to buy 60 body cams for a pilot program for Tampa Police Department officers will go before the city council this week. The cameras will be distributed to those officers in three Tampa districts best known for ruining their own Facebook photos by covering the phone lens with a finger.
