Out on travel again next Friday - see you guys on the 24th.
popespydie -- What's the last TV catch phrase you remember?
"Did I do that?"
"Don' be riddikoolus."
"Yada, yada, yada"
One of those catch phrases is not like the other:
One came from a funny show.
One came from a show not featured on ABC's TGIF lineup.
One came from a show not aimed directly at the lowest common denominator.
While all came from emotional children, one came from characters with intellectual ages over 13.
eideteker -- Did you hear that Guiding Light is being cancelled? What the shit is that?
For realz. First Passions, now this.
Are you telling me that housewives are actually spending their time taking care of their homes and children?
What are college students supposed to watch between their noon and 2:30 classes now?
Maybe now that twat at the gym will stop changing the channel everybody else is watching without asking.
absolutcalm -- Say you and your paramilitary organization secretly held a 24hour cable news station hostage for a day. Who would it be and what would you force them to report?
Bloomberg News: Managing your money does not include arguing with part-time cashiers over the price of retail items. These employees have neither price-setting responsibility nor negotiation power.
C-SPAN: Round-the-clock coverage of the rantings of the definitely-crazy/possibly "special" guy who wanders around the park in front of my office building.
FOX News: While you may like your gigantic truck, if you have to back into the spot, you can't expect the three people behind you to all back up so you can maneuver your giant boat around the cramped parking lots. Later: the meaning of "Compact Only".
ESPN: Beer pong! Beer pong!! Beer pong!!!
pooplord -- Viggo Mortensen's hottest role? Men must also vote. Admit it, men. You also think Viggo is hot.
That movie about horses or something.
Heh, and 28 Days
. Just think, he could have been Matthew McConaughey.
renob423 -- has twitter officially become the new hot thing since people like my mom started getting a facebook? I used to bust on MySpace for being LJ for people who can't write. Twitter makes Facebook users look like they're composing sonnets. i mistake pepsi ads for obama signs because of the logo, will their sales drop if his popularity does? will he ever do a pepsi commercial?
Everybody knows what Pepsi is, and whether they prefer it to other drinks. Pepsi is just trying to reward their customers with a channeling of that tingle-up-the-leg/faint-at-the-sight-of-it feeling they get from thinking about Obama.
If flashy marketing, pretty logos, and a fresh new image got 18-34 year-olds to elect a half-term Junior Senator into the White House, surely it can make some of that juicy demographic spend $1.29 on soda.
The Obama Pepsi commerical will be for the revival of Pepsi Clear: "It doesn't look like all those other colas you spend your dollar bills on."
No matter how unpopular, irrelevant, or passe Obamamania becomes, expect to see this logo for at least 8 or 9 years. People still have John Kerry stickers on their cars. Hell, there's even still some Manbearpig stickers left.
coldblackncold -- Thanks to wikipedia it has come to my attention that groundhogs, besides being known as woodchucks, are also known as land beavers or whistlepigs. Whistlepig?!? Best word ever? Do they fight crime? Save the world? The next rodent to deserve an awesomized name:
Hamsters, or "pouchmouths".
Ferrets, or "fursnakes".
Nutria, or "ratmonsters".
Squirrels, or "frolicmonkeys".
A group of Army guys gave Trey Parker and Matt Stone a photo of Saddam Hussein, signed by the man himself prior to his execution. While in captivity, Saddam was treated to repeat viewings of Bigger, Longer and Uncut.
In return, Matt & Trey gave the Army guys an autographed photo of Saddam fucking the Devil up the ass.
I hope it was aired to more terrorists than just Saddam as a demotivational bit of propaganda: "ya know that guy you were going to kill people for? Here's what the rest of the world thinks of him."
It may have actually filled Saddam with some hope that the afterlife wouldn't be so shabby after all.
At least now we'll know what to do with Kim Jong Il when we take him.
Friending co-workers on Facebook, good idea? Bad idea?
Sure, why not. They're on it as much or more as you are.
Do not mix Work Megan with Fun Mej. They cannot exist together.
I leave for a weeklong work trip to Las Vegas on Monday. How many times will people refer to it as "Lost Wages"?
