100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Allow Me to Fascinate You

Missing the cut on Barbara Walter's Most Fascinating People list.

Look, I get it. I'm not the most popular guy in the world. But with the people I am popular with? I'm INSANELY popular. For example; women's prisons. They love me in women's prisons. I'm just as big with the "lazy inebriate" set. And the "people who have lost the will to live" demographic also hold me in the highest regard.

So why am I furiously envious? Because apparently my "Barbara Walters" popularity numbers have crapped the bed! GOD!! WHOSE TRUMPET DO I HAVE TO BLOW TO IMPRESS THIS OLD BIDDY??

Every year Walters releases her "Most Fascinating People" list, and every year I'M NOT ON IT. Babs will be interviewing her picks in the exhaustingly entitled Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011 this coming Wednesday, Dec 14 on ABC at 9:30 pm - but what kidnaps and decapitates my goat is that the people she chose are waaaaaaay less "fascinating" than yours truly!


Example! Instead of me, Walters chose Donald Trump. WHAT?? Donald didn't do jack poop in 2011 except make an ass out of himself in an aborted run for the GOP presidential nomination! You know what I did in 2011? I tongue-wrestled two Swedish exchange students in the backseat of a stolen police car. WHICH IS MORE FASCINATING?

Another example! Babs also picked Pippa Middleton - who is like... what? British or something? Granted their crooked, jumbled teeth and love for pornographic foods (bangers 'n' mash, spotted dick) are somewhat fascinating... but is it more fascinating than me buck naked, riding a donkey through Hot Topic at the mall? (Taken out of context, that sounds weird - but trust me! I had a very good reason. I think.)

Barbara Walters also fingered Simon Cowell... who's only fascinating because he's British, AND a spotted dick. However! I'd wager my 2011 was more fascinating because I was arrested for fist fighting a jaguar at the zoo. (Bitch started it.)

Oh, and another good example: Barbara chose the two gay guys from Modern Family - who... NEWSFLASH!... are not real. They're TV characters! You know what else is fascinating? People like me who can distinguish between real and fictional characters - unless we're talking about the cast of Twilight, of course. THOSE GUYS ARE REAL, YO! (And for some reason never return my love. Sob.)

But the absolute WORST example? Walters also thinks THE KARDASHIANS are "fascinating." IS SHE INSANE?? There is absolutely nothing interesting about these ugly, wet, moldy bags of insanely wealthy laundry! All they do is sit around on their bony rich asses all day dreaming up new and increasingly cruel ways of boring the crap out of us. I'd compare them to genital herpes, but I don't want to get angry, offended letters from genital warts! The Kardashians have built an entire fabulously wealthy kingdom out of nothing more than the ability to worm their way into our collective anus, set up shop in our upper colon, and gorge themselves on our anger. And... and... okay, fine. That's pretty fascinating.

But is it as fascinating as me eating five boxes of Totino's pizza rolls in one sitting? Suck on that piece of colon, Kardashians!

Follow me, I'm FASCINATING. @WmSteveHumphrey
