time to make the donuts.

Scarf ad has holes in it

The Dunkin' Donuts chain has pulled an online advertisement featuring celebrity chef Rachael Ray, after critics argued a scarf she wore in the ad offers symbolic support for terrorism.

Dunkin' Donuts said it pulled the ad in the US over the weekend because of what it calls a ``misperception'' about the scarf that detracted from its original intent.

Critics complained that the scarf appeared to be traditional garb worn by Arab men. The ad's critics say such scarves have come to symbolise Muslim extremism and terrorism.

The chain says no symbolism was intended.

in the real world we wear clothes.

season 20 of mtv's "the real world" is set in hollywood and features a stripper, a muscle man who punches an exercise bag until he bleeds, a mean black guy, a nice black guy, and some other people who could be replaced each episode with a completely different person and i wouldn't even notice. anyway, brianna is the aforementioned stripper and source of pure reality tv gold.

this week brianna had to go to court to deal with some assault charges she had evaded arrest for in the past. this is what she chose to wear.

going to court? i'm more or less certain that you're doing it wrong.

i mean, to be fair, maybe the sweater is cashmere. although last time i checked, they didn't sell cashmere at wet seal.

last week brianna met a guy named jo jo. although his friends kindly called him ho ho. jo jo is like an even uglier kevin federline, and has fame that only extends to being on one episode of the real world.

but alas, ho ho totally burned brianna, giving her the ultimate no no, and making her look like a dodo.

here is a photo of jo jo from his myspace profile, which you can look at here.
