Mysterious Advertising Campaign Proclaims 'Hipsters Deserve To Die'

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueEtc.

Hipsters deserve to die poster

This advertising campaign should get the attention of just about anyone who comes into contact with it.

Mysterious posters popping up in major cities around the United States declare that hipsters, cat lovers, the genetically privileged and crazy old aunts "deserve to die."

Some are confused by the unusual posters, while others are downright offended. In reference to the "cat lovers" poster, one Chicago woman was quoted as saying, "I think that's very offensive to people who are animal lovers."

We imagine that's the point though. One quick look at the campaign's website URL reveals that NoOneDeservesToDie(.org)! While some are up in arms over the "offensive" nature of the campaign, they may not realize that its goal is to raise awareness for a deadly disease that "doesn't discriminate."

For the few that haven't figured it out yet, it means that regardless of the various labels society slaps on our back, NONE of us deserve to die! The site reads:

Kathryn Joosten r.i.p.

Emmy Award-winning Kathryn Joosten, who, in a devastating case of life imitating art had us choking back tears during her character Karen McKluskey's death scene on the series finale of Desperate Housewives, passed away in real life yesterday after losing her battle with lung cancer at the age of 72.

According to her rep, the actress - who was also known for her roles on The West Wing and Scrubs - was surrounded by her family in her Westlake Village home in El Lay at the time of her passing.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of her relatives, fans, and loved ones during this time.

May she R.I.P.

What a sad end to his life.

Former Penn State University coach Joe Paterno died Sunday morning just two months after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

As we all know by now, after 46 years of coaching at Penn State, Joe was fired last November following the sexual abuse scandal involving his former assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky.

His family released the following statement:

Joe Paterno Is In The Hospital Again

Filed under: HealthFootballCancer

Paterno in Hospital

If he wouldn't have been fired, it looks like health reasons would have forced Joe Paterno to retire this year.

The sick former Penn State football coach has been admitted into the hospital again. His family hopes the stay is brief, but Paterno was hospitalized for minor complications from his ongoing lung cancer treatments just a month after fracturing his pelvis.

Things aren't all bad for the all-time winningest football coach in NCAA Division I history. PSU officials revealed on Thursday that Paterno is still getting paid despite being relieved of his coaching duties last fall after the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal broke.

A statement from Chairman Steve Garban and Vice Chairman John Surma read:

"Coach Paterno remains employed by the university as a tenured faculty member. The details of his retirement are being worked out and will be made public when they are finalized. Generally speaking, the university intends to honor the terms of his employment contract and is treating him financially as if he had retired at the end of the 2011 football season."

We hope this guy's health starts to turn around soon and he's able to beat this cancer! Feel better soon, Joe!
