Happy 2nd anniversary of Dick Pic day.

The site’s cursor was changed to Leo Laporte’s dick pic in honor of today and because its small size lends itself well to being a mouse cursor. Now, only this paragraph has the dick cursor.

The video that changed everything for Leo Laporte and TWiT

Timeline

We are continually shocked and surprised at what TWiT shows on-air. We always think it can’t get worse, but it usually does. Next year on dick day, we’ll let you know if there are any updates in the saga.

TWiT CEO Lisa Laporte Displays Questionable Judgement Online

Sadly, it’s nothing we haven’t seen before in explicit detail, but thanks to an anonymous tipster, we now know that Lisa Laporte — TWiT’s CEO — is perfectly OK with her crotch shot legs being used by a leg fetish page on Instagram.

Lisa Laporte publicly giving permission for her crotch shot to be used as leg fetish material.

Yes, Lisa Laporte is now proudly displayed on @igsbestlegs – Leg Fan‘s page, whose tagline is:

“The best female legs on Instagram! For Instagrammers who love beautiful legs and feet, bare or in hose 👠 👢 🔞 👣”

As our anonymous tipster asks:

“What other CEO would do this?”

You can view the conversation on her Instagram page until she deletes it, and then after that on the archive link or our screenshot.

Is It Still Just “One Ass”?

How Leo Laporte would like to be seen/remembered, not the Steve Bannon approximation we have today.

Once upon a time, Leo Laporte said that there was only person who thinks poorly of him and “trolls” him.


Editor’s Note: “Troll” means someone who disagrees with you and posts videos of you doing embarrassing things.


Is it really still that “one ass” who’s bothering Leo? We’re not so sure.

Have a look at the comments on LifeHacker’s article and podcast called How to Be a Tech Podcast God with Leo Laporte.

Full credit due to Alice Bradley on the sarcastic title. Good one!

Some of our favorite comments are below, but be sure to read the full comments section! Lisa Laporte’s empire really is falling down around her ankles.

Failed TWiT Show “The New Screen Savers” Still Has No Audience

“Watch my hands. When my hands go down, everybody applaud… Whoa yeah! Yeah yeah yeah! Woo woo, woooooo!”
Leo Laporte
He had a talking digital assistant read the cold open? As a mom, I’m shocked.

It’s hard to believe Leo Laporte’s failed, ego-inflating side project The New Screen Savers is still having new episodes produced. I guess that’s what happens when you have an admitted failure of a CEO like Lisa Laporte.

In a move that should surprise no one, #Soup had to resort to having Anthony — the only one with any talent left at TWiT — “Simon says” the Amazon Echo into repeating the cold open for the show.

Oh god. That show is still on? Did you know I have kids?

We’ve previously written about how they had to have their rent-a-cop read the cold open. Previously, he had to force a The Tech Guy viewer to do it.

Just admit TNSS isn’t working, Leo. It didn’t restore TWiT to glory. TNSS is never going to happen.

Lisa Laporte’s fantastical dream of having the “TV show” syndicated on airlines and college campuses is similarly never going to happen.

Lisa Laporte is really bad at her job. I have kids, by the way.

The show is terrible. It’s boring. It’s devoid of content. And the saddest thing is… it’s depressing. It’s just sad to watch you do it to yourself weekly.

I will give Anthony kudos for the production of Megan Morrone’s acting debut in the short below. It gave us lots of great pictures of Megan.

Leo Laporte Doesn’t Give a Fuck About Rehearsing, Uses Racist “Gypsy” Slur Again

Yes, it happened again.

When Leo Laporte and co-host Florence Ion are being asked to do a rehearsal for the upcoming The New Screen Savers episode, the “Cheif TWiT” doesn’t seem to give a fuck and instead decides it would be funnier to ask Ion what her middle name’s initial is. ‘Cause that’s absolutely part of the rehearsal, right? Right.

But, of course, it just goes downhill from here. Next, Laporte got the idea that Ion’s first book should be called “My Life as a Romani”, because he got told not to call her a gypsy back in March, remember?

Florence Ion’s reaction when asked if her father “thinks of himself as a gypsy”

Then, he promptly asks if her father “thinks of himself as a gypsy”, which she denies with a “Noooo”. Not only can you hear, but also see that his behaviour and this stupid, insulting comment makes her very uncomfortable.

It seems our favourite, wonderfully disgusting, racist Cheif TWaT Leo Laperve will never learn, no matter how often he’s being told not to use that word.

As a bonus, here’s a video of another instance where, during that very same TNSS episode, he decided it would be funny to make fun of a black guy during a Call For Help segment. Of course he used the term “gypsy” again.

This was actually removed in the final podcast/YouTube version of the show, but luckily I caught it on our DVR.

Fuck you, Leo Laperve.

John C. Dvorak Is Not Welcome at TWiT

The dumb, fat one on the left seems to hate the journalistic god on the right.

In the video above, you can listen to Leo Laporte say that John C. Dvorak is persona non grata at the TWiT Shoebox Studios. That means “personally unacceptable or unwelcome”, for those not well-versed in Latin.

I’m a bit too lazy these days to work all the past links about Dvorak into a witty, amusing narrative, so here’s a list of links of the times Leo Laporte and Lisa Laporte have mistreated and demeaned him:

He really can’t help himself. Soup has claimed that Lisa Laporte reached out to John in the past at his behest and apologized on Leo’s behalf, requesting that Dvorak come back. But, Leo lets himself go on shows like this and tells the truth.

Leo Laporte absolutely can’t stand John C. Dvorak’s independent thoughts on the successful No Agenda show.

Tonya Hall Quits TWiT

Where in the World is Tonya Hall?

Six months ago, we asked “Will Tonya Hall Ever Be Allowed On-Screen Again?

Today, we have the answer: No.

The substantial woman whose marquee entertainment show — Marketing Mavericks — was put on permanent hiatus in 2015 was demoted to a podcast booker.

Soon after, she humiliated Sarah Lane, herself, the TWiT Network and journalism in general at the Crunchies.

Tee hee!

Tonya Hall’s reputation may have first started to suffer in 2014, when she threw an advertiser under the busnow official TWiT policy — but we appreciated her larger-than-life personality.

She will now retire to the great state of Colorado, the least obese and most active state in the nation.

TWiT had a party and nobody invited Leo Laporte. How could they have forgotten? He admits again in the video above that he has to buy friends. It would be sad he if hadn’t created the problem himself — pretend an appropriate link is here since the entire site would apply to this statement — over the years.

Farewell, Tonya Hall. Farewell.

Nathan Olivarez-Giles Defiles the Family-Friendly TWiT Network

Nathan Olivarez-Giles, seen here in need of soap for his potty mouth

It should come as no surprise that Nathan Olivarez-Giles — TWiT’s newest hire — cursed out the live stream on one of his first shows, as you can see in the video above.

The guy with the man-bun to his right could only laugh in disbelief at what was happening.

Have CEO Lisa Laporte and Leo Laporte officially dropped the family-friendly designation for the TWiT network?

Leo Laporte killed the family-friendly reputation years ago when Leo cursed out a room full of children live during the New Year’s Eve celebration in 2015.

Later in that banner year, Leo Laporte displayed his penis for all to see. The next year, he showed us Lisa’s vagina.

This year, 2017, Leo has already shared his teen porn with us. Lots more disgusting non-family friendly things have happened, but those are the highlights.

Leo Laporte’s Sex Swing is a Joke on No Agenda

Adam Curry, hero among men.

If we’re being honest, we’d somewhat forgotten about Leo Laporte’s sex swing.

Adam Curry has not forgotten, and he referenced it on the No Agenda podcast he co-hosts with John C. Dvorak, episode 911 at around the 2hr 22m mark.

Listen to the clip below.

Can you just imagine Leo and Lisa using this thing?

Leo Laporte Uses Racist Slur (Gypsy) to Describe Florence Ion

Florence Ion’s reaction to being called a gypsy

It’s easy to almost feel sorry for Leo Laporte these days. Look at this crappy panel he gathered for TWiT, the show that once brought luminaries of our day:

  • Florence Ion (contract host for All About Android)
  • Alex Wilhelm (John C. Dvorak wannabe)
  • Peter Rojas (how’s GDGT going?)

What’s not so easy to forgive is his casual racism. He called Florence Ion a gypsy over and over until Peter corrected him. Leo Laporte used that learning moment to spew more stereotypes of the Romani people, asking her if she has a violin and requesting that she play it for him. He did all of this in a stupid accent, of course.

This is not the first time he’s done something like this. In previous shows and live copyright infringements, he’s stated that some black people “all look alike”, and he thought “nigras” was an acceptable term for black people as well. He didn’t really correct Megan Morrone’s racism, but it at least made him uncomfortable.

What a sick fuck.
