I love it when Apple unwittingly, but always purposefully, hands us our future — for a steep admission price. Watching our new watch-centric Futureworld unwind yesterday — in the din from a bright new set of iPhone 6 twins — was a surreal and foreboding experience. Apple takes us by the hand and we lovingly follow, and play along, all while paying up — and we believe we’re all better for it in the effervescent end; but are we?
There’s a television commercial that endlessly plays on late night television promising you fast, easy, money. It’s a 30 second advertisement that actually plays twice in 15 second increments. The commercial plays once and then instantly re-starts to annoy you with a repeat of what you just heard 15 seconds ago. I was finally able to capture a screenshot of the “loan” company with my iPhone, and I was shocked to learn the hard-to-read fine print of their financial terms for a $10,000 USD “next day loan” deposited straight into your checking account.
Her current porn career notwithstanding, we have known since at least February 9, 2009 that Nadya Suleman is — The Worst Mother in the World — and now we have additional information that makes one wonder if she is now also The Worst Loan Shark Shill Ever!

Imagine my shock when she recently popped on my late-night television screen in what, at first, appeared to be a private YouTube video gone public, and vilely viral, catching her unaware at home — when, oops!, all she was really doing — surprise! — was serving as an on-purpose paid loan shark pitchperson… err… pitchshark… uh… loanshill… ah… OctoLoanSharkMom to charge vig on money people don’t have.
