I just read the most hilarious article about a keynote address Ashley Judd gave in Canada the other day. BEHOLD THIS EXCERPT (emphasis on the parts that made me roll my eyes the hardest):
She has experience volunteering with organizations that combat human trafficking, but declined to speak about those experiences. Instead, spoke about herself and the neglect and abuse she suffered in her childhood, which she disclosed in a 2012 autobiography. She spoke at length and apparently off-the-cuff about her relationship with her parents, her therapy and the death of her dog.
She drew a connection to human trafficking by saying she was like the victims, even though she has never been trafficked.
The Canadian Women’s Foundation had shown a short documentary they made about a women who’d been trafficked into the sex trade by men she met at a Winnipeg mall. He later kidnapped her, repeatedly raped her and forced her into prostitution. Judd said she was like that girl.
“I was that girl at the mall,” said Judd. “It’s a miracle I am standing here today. When I tell this story, it surprises me the extremity of my particular narrative. Not everybody has a story as shocking, or whatever you want to call it, as mine.”
Seriously, is there anyone on the planet more insufferable than Ashley, who can watch a documentary on a woman being repeatedly raped and forced into prostitution, and then immediately say that not everyone has a story as shocking as her own?” SERIOUSLY?
Or, I’m sorry. Whichever one fits.
Video after the jump.

I can’t decide if this is awesome or ridiculous.
I just realized it’s been over a week since I posted something here. Sorry y’all. I have no excuse other than the fact that this is probably the busiest I have ever been in the history of ever.
Wanted to share something with you that made me all weepy today. BEHOLD:
Apparently, a father had this tombstone designed and made for his wheelchair-bound son depicting him “free of his earthly burdens.”
Can you even stand it?
I can’t tell you how often I have dreams that my Junior Mock is running or walking or jumping or playing like a regular kid. Perhaps it’s morbid to think about it, but this actually gave me some comfort – imagining that there will come a day when he, too, is free of his earthly burdens.
For now, I’m just going to continue to love him to pieces. Because seriously, LOOK AT HIM.
You guys, it’s rated like FOUR PERCENT on rottentomatoes.com, which is like EPICALLY BAD. And according to this, it’s completely tanked at the box office. Here’s the key excerpt from that article:
Yes, the lone new release is Freestyle’s The Identical, which is an allegedly laughably-bad faith-based bit of speculative historical fiction, fashioned around the idea that Elvis’s twin brother, who was a stillborn, actually survived and grew up in his famous brother’s shadow. The film stars Seth Green, Ashley Judd, Joe Pantoliano, and Ray Liotta and it earned just $534,000 yesterday. The picture will be lucky to crack $1.75m for the weekend in 1,956 theaters, and with even with just a $12m budget, that’s going to hurt City of Peace Films and Identical Production Company very badly.
This calls for another horrifically bad photo of her.
She’ll say she never reads anything about herself, but y’all know that’s total BS, right? Anyway, just do a search on reviews for the new movie that’s sort of but not really about Elvis or maybe just an Elvis impersonator, and you’ll see that everyone sort of universally hates it.
And I’m telling you that because I needed an excuse to post this photo.
The final result anytime I try to put together furniture that only has picture instructions and not written instructions.
