Weeklings!: Avril Lavigne and Lance Armstrong (VIDEO)

How silly were straight people this week? Avril Lavigne and the Nickelback guy got engaged, and Lance Armstrong may be stripped of his seven Tour de France victories. Bad job, heterosexuals!

Sometimes it's fun to sit back and mock the exploits of straight people. It's so... easy? In this week's comical tales of heterosexuality, Lavigne and Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger announced they're getting married, which is a big, disturbing surprise. Then Lance Armstrong proclaimed that he'll no longer defend himself against the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and their claims that the seven-time Tour de France champ is a dope-using dope artist. Could be a dubious claim, but Armstrong will nonetheless be stripped of his titles.

In today's Weeklings!, I try to make sense of all this news using my favorite tactic: mockery. Sk8r bois unite!
