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:

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.

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!

Adele Is Still Smoking After Throat Surgery

Filed under: AdeleHealthAddictionSmokingSurgery

Adele still smoking

We're a little disappointed to hear this news, but then again, she never expressed any interest in quitting in the first place.

Adele, who is recovering from microsurgery to remove a benign polyp from her vocal cords, has been spotted smoking again!

An eyewitness saw the singing sensation lighting up after dinner with her new beau, Simon Konecki, and told sources:

"Adele and Simon had dinner at Bobby Rubino's in Pompano Beach, Fla., on Jan. 1. Right after they were done, she walked out of the place and had a cigarette outside."

After getting back to the UK, Adele was also spotted smoking in a car, which doctors do not advise after surgery, explaining:

"It reduces the body's ability to heal and causes irritation. The risk of infection is enhanced. Smoking is a deterrent. Especially for women, it lowers their voices and makes it rougher."

That's not good! Adele, however, doesn't seem to care about the advice and candidly commented on smoking by saying:

"I gave up smoking for two months. It was f—ing grim. I had laryngitis about a week before the album came out and it was so frightening. I stopped smoking, drinking, eating or drinking citrus, spicy foods and caffeine. It was so f—ing boring…. My voice was better when I wasn't smokingWithin a week I noticed it had changed, but I'd rather my voice be a bit s–t so I can have a f—ing laugh."

We hope Adele never faces the dangerous side effects of smoking, but we do worry about the health of any smoker we love. Please consider quitting smoking for both your future and your fans, gurl!

Study Suggests Smoking Pot On Occasion Won't Harm Your Lungs

Filed under: DrugsHealthCancerSmoking

Smoking weed lungs

Occasional stoners rejoice!

A 20-year study has revealed that smoking marijuana once or twice a week doesn't hurt the lungs.

Smoking once or twice a day, however, is a different story.

Although there weren't enough heavy users among the 5,000 young adults involved to draw firm conclusions, this large-scale study determined using marijuana that often might cause a decline in lung function.

Similar studies into marijuana use have yet to find a link between smoking the drug and lung cancer.

The effects of pot seem to be much less dangerous than tobacco, but researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham recommended "caution and moderation when marijuana use is considered."

We'd like to echo that sentiment. It's still an illegal drug and can still impair your judgement. Smoke at your own risk!
