I stopped at #1 'cause I prefer Dr. Pepper.

Jean-Luc Picard over James T. Kirk - When Picard was 56 (Star Trek - First Contact), he still cut a good figure while shirtless. Something Kirk couldn't do at 36 (Star Trek - Original Series, Season 2)...

More fun
WITH
or
WITHOUT
answers?

Alex S. said...

Coke - Because I have taste buds.
Diane Chambers
Tom Brady - Because press on Rogers is still in its way overindulgent phase.
Advil - Can't remember ever using either. So I'll pick Advil because I'm less annoyed by commercials.
Magic - Because his retirement announcement made my 11th Social Studies teacher cry that morning and I enjoy the surreal
The Talk - Never watched either so The Talk since I like Sharon Osborne's hair color.
Evan Longoria - Because he deserves something for having to put up with the Desperate Housewives jokes.
Ferguson - Anybody who doesn't pick Ferguson probably drinks Pepsi and we know such people aren't to be trusted.
Adele - Because I'm not 100 years old.
Heath Ledger - Because he made more than one good movie so the myth is a little more justified.
Reese’s Pieces
The old HAWAII FIVE-0 - Both were suck shows but I lived in Hawaii for two years for grad school and when I first got there I rented a room from this crazy hoarder lady and she insisted on taking me on a tour of the island which included a stop (in her beat up 1972 station wagon) at the luxury hotel in Kahala where Jack Lord lived and she forced a bellhop to tell me all about an actor I'd never heard of on a show that I'd never seen. Again, the surreal.
Twitter - My mom's on Facebook.
Ben Affleck - Five years ago easily the duck. Then we learned he (Ben) can direct.
Bill Maher - At least his funny is sometimes funny.
George Clooney - Again, I'm not 100 years old.
Gloria - If Claire dyed her hair to not be blond it might change but until then...
Iron Chef - Japanese version, otherwise first Iron Man movie. Iron Man 2 vs. Iron Chef America I might start drinking Pepsi.
Charlie Sheen - Any man who can string together words with such skill while strung out to Minneapolis should be a hero.
Pandora - Blue people are cool.
CHEERS - Because it resulted in the Tonight Show experience after the last episode.
Christopher Reeve - Because he provided the one time I remember completely busting my mother up. At some family gathering she said "Did you know that the elephant is the only animal that can't jump." And I immediately chimed in with "That's not true: Christopher Reeve."
Egg McMuffin
Maggie Gyllenhaal - Secretary. 'Nuff said.
Tallulah Morehead - I don't know who this is but I refuse to pick Cher.
Kindle - I'm on my third Kindle (first one from within a month of them being sold) so yes.
Rocky - At least through the first three movies.
Woody - Can you imagine the horror of being an animate toy that relies on batteries?
Woody or Mel - Woody, because my first wife made me go see "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" and then made me pretend to like it.
ACM - I assumed this was American Medical Association vs. Academy of Cardioligical Medics.
Joe Buck (MIDNIGHT COWBOY) - Wait, I was thinking Joe Morgan and nobody likes him.
Laverne or Shirley - Whichever one didn't make Renaissance Man.
Bert - Frankly he's right to be so pissed off all the time with Ernie.
Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade - Nobody ever tries to make me watch this one. I don't like parades.
Justice Clarence Thomas
Pubic hair on Coke can or Pepsi can - Who's pubic hair is it?
ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT or COMMUNITY - This one hurts, but ultimately I think I come down on the side of Community.
Kim Kardashian or Jenna Jamison - My wife insists that I not know enough to be able to pick.
Subways - Subways gave us Pelham 1-2-3. And Money Train. One of those is a good thing.
The Subway or Quizno’s? - Quiznos. I never eat at either but only Quizno's has run commercials implying someone sticking their dick in a toaster oven.
Willie Mays - Mays wife never went public with the claim that $220 million is insulting.
Zombies - At least until they start sparkling.
New Year’s - Nobody gets annoyed at me for ignoring New Year like they do at me for ignoring Christmas.

Iron Man. Too many dead animals on Iron Chef. Only manimals hurt on Iron Man.

FRASIER or CHEERS?

Cheers. I never got into Frasier. I remember Kelsey Grammer saying on Jay Leno the night the last Cheers aired that the Frasier in his new show wouldn't be the same, but rather the next incarnation. I like the old incarnation. Darker. Funnier.

Love them both but Picard. Less one-dimensional and I could put the slaphead in my garden to keep away hawks.

Paul Rudd or Paul Rudnick?

Rudd. His carpet matches his pubes.

Albert Pujols or Willie Mays?

Mays. I'm not convinced Pujols isn't a doper. I've learned to be wary of superhuman numbers. Sad that's what it's come to.

Pubic hair on Coke can or Pepsi can?

Just water for me. And two checks.

Tallulah Morehead. Tallulah Bankhead, too. 
Neither Kindle or Nook. Kindle app for iPad.  
Bullwinkle. My favorite book when I was three was about Bullwinkle who dreamed of being a brave firemoose, rescuing little old ladies from the tops of burning buildings then retiring to the firehouse for cupcakes and mooseberry juice. 
Neither AMERICAN IDOL or THE X-FACTOR. So You Think You Can Dance

Both Elvis Costello and Lou Costello

Joe Buck (MIDNIGHT COWBOY). I don't remember who he is in that movie, but he has to be better than zombie Joe Buck, master of the painfully obvious. Laverne 
Ernie
Paul Rudd 
I don't like parades. 
Baltimore Colts. It's probably best not to ask these Cleveland native what he thinks of the Baltimore Ravens. I wouldn't want Homeland Security to shut down your blog.   
Aren't Herman Cain and Justice Clarence Thomas the same guy?
Pubic hair on the pubis, please. 
ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT
At least Jenna Jamison has talents. 
Subways
Quizno’s
I have to say Albert Pujols because Willie Mays single-handedly destroyed the best season in Indians history. 
Neither Viagra or Cialis. Their ads are equally egregious, too. F*ck the Viva Viagra guys, and what the hell is with the side-by-side bathtubs? Who has those? How do you fill them with hot water when they overlook a cliff? And once they have water in them, how are you supposed to have sex in them?
Zombies
Zombies
Adam Sandler only for the Thanksgiving and Hannukah songs, Happy Gilmore, and Punch Drunk Love.  
Christmas - staying home with family beats going out and fighting amateur drunks every time.

We definitely vote for Christopher Reeve. Why? We knew Chris. We knew Dana. And we continue Chris and Dana's efforts to find cures and treatments for spinal cord injuries and to improve the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.

I'm not going to try anyone's patience with the whole list, but I just wanted to say that not only is it Bert ahead of Ernie (I'm not going with Bert "over" Ernie), but Bert is probably the funniest Muppet there is. And I say that as a huge fan of all things Muupet.

I may not be 100 years old, but it's no coincidence that White Christmas was on AMC last night and "Sisters" was running through my head while I read the list. Sorry, George, though all indications are you loved your Aunt Rosemary a great deal.

A Helpful Citizen said...

1. Coke. In a walk.
2. Diane in theory, Rebecca in practice.
3. Joe Montana. Brady if I must. Too much dick-riding on both from football wonks, though.

4. Advil
5. Magic
6. Supes
7. Influenza
8. Evan if my playoff chances are on the line, Eva if my boning chances are on the line.

9. Neither, but Ferguson if I could be arsed to watch.

10. Swine flu
11. Dean in theory, Ledger in practice.

12. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
13. Old
14. Facebook
15. Ask me again if I have to file a claim. Until then, Ben.

16. Olbermann, providing he's only talking baseball.

17. I hate phones. All phones. So I guess the little scamp wins.

18. As a person, Brad. As a sex object, Angelina. As a talent...wash.

19. George, unless there is singing to be done.

20. I have no idea who these people are.

21. See previous.
22. IMs
23. Ivan "Ironman" Stewart
24. Sheen.
25. Having no idea what Pandora is, the former, I guess.

26. Flintstones. I like Fred's ride.

27. Betty. You know she's good to go.

28. CHEERS
29. Christopher Reeve.
30. Sausage McMuffin, hold the egg. Eggs are the devil's work.

31. I don't believe they actually are two people.

32. Maggie. Jake has a face I'd never tire of punching

33. Great taste.
34. Ebola
35. Kindling or breakfast nook? What? What the fuck are you on about, man?

55. Getting a better job and buying a car like a grown-up.

56. Equally overpriced, but Quizno's tastes better.

57. Mays, if only because he excelled at a tougher defensive position.

58. My crank still works just fine, thank you very much. I would assume that all boner medicine is created equally.

Magic or Bird?

Neither - Bernard King

Batman or Superman?

It depends on the decade - 70's-80's: Superman. Nobody, I mean nobody topped Christopher Reeve.

Now, Christian Bale's Batman is amazing...

The View or The Talk?

Instead, can I have an ice pick in the eye?

Eva Longoria or Evan Longoria?

Evan - Desperate Housewives jumped the shark years ago..

George Clooney or Rosemary Clooney?

George Clooney - probably the only current actor who would fit in with the Rat Pack.

Texts or IM’s?

Iron Man or Iron Chef?

I AM IRON MAN.... This movie was catching lightning in a bottle. It had no right to be as good as it was...

Neither - the mp3's on my phone...

Flintstones or Jetsons?

Flintstones

Betty or Wilma?

Betty

FRASIER or CHEERS?

This is a tough one, but I have to go with Frasier. The departures of Diane and Coach changed Cheers, and not for the better - Sam went from being a smooth womanizing ex-jock to a pathetic, whimpering simp who practically begged to get it from Rebecca...

Tallulah Morehead said...

CHER???

Puh-leaze! At least I have boobs that are larger than my nose, unlike a certian ossified old singer! After all, I don't routinely-if-unintentionally kick my nose as I walk, and I can't say that about my boobs now, can I?

I may have briefly married Dracula once (I was young; he was hypnotic, but such a night owl!), but at least I never married Sonny Bono. And my embarrassing daughter had the good taste to disappear without a trace in 1959, so that whatever scandals she may have provoked since, I'm not asked to be supportive about them on Entertainment Tonight. You won't see my Pattycakes on Dancing with the Star's Spawn, whatever gender she may be now.

Libby Gelman-Waxner (Paul Rudnick to some) once wrote that Sir Christopher Lee playing Saruman in The Lord of the Rings resembled: "Cher as she'd look if she'd been allowed to age naturally." I agree, expecially about the long beard.

Tallulah Morehead said...

OK, "An" and "Gottacook," you're off my list. No vodka for YOU!

Jake Mabe, you have execrable taste. Cher is wine from a box.

"Birdie," I'm putting my cat into your cage with you.

"Dgwphotography," your taste is undeveloped and overexposed.

Gee, Daniel, I was going to say "Yup," but not now. See if your precious Cher says "yup" to you or not.

BigNed (How big? If it's double digits, call me), thanks for your exquisite taste.

Alex S., wise choice.

Thank you, Steve Zeloi and RCP.
Nice evasion, Matt D; My sixth husband used "Never Cher" as his wedding vow.

RS Gray, you know who to invite to a party.

Eduardo Jenncarelli, your devotion is touching.

Ah, Mork; how well I remember my first Orkasm, thanks once again.

My thanks, "Bee," you are now freed from my bonnet.

Caitlin B, I LOVE being Googled, even if it's not out of True Love.

Chip Who?

Who's Horaceco?

Thanks to all my fans. I may be 113, but I'm still younger than Cher.

Paul Duca said...

RTV or Me TV?

Moot point in Boston...the station that had RTV just changed over to MeTV--M*A*S*J. CHEERS, TAXI, DICK VAN DYKE, MARY TYLER MOORE, original HAWAII FIVE-O and TWILIGHT ZONE to name but a few..

Tallulah Morehead said:

"I may be 113, but I'm still younger than Cher."

According to your autobiography, Tallulah, you were born in 1896 - that makes you 115. No need to shave off the years, honey - you're still smokin hot!

camillofan said...

I have an opinion on these:

    Pepsi over Coke
    Diane Chambers over Rebecca Howe
    Advil over Aleve
    Superman over Batman (and every other hero, ever)
    Kimmel & Ferguson = a tie (and the hardest question on the survey)
    Barbra over Adele (that's my demographic talking)
    Reese’s Pieces over Reese Witherspoon
    Facebook over Twitter (the latter's too much work)
    Keith Olbermann over Bill Maher (easiest question on the survey)
    Rosemary Clooney over George (not that there's much wrong w/ him)
    Texts over IM’s (I guess)
    Iron Man over Iron Chef
    Flintstones over Jetsons
    Wilma over Betty (am I the only one? Wilma was smart and funny)
    FRASIER over CHEERS (and I liked Cheers... but I *loved* Frasier)
    Kindle over Nook
    Rocky over Bullwinkle (but they need each other)
    Elvis Costello & Lou Costello = too close to call
    Woody over Buzz (but I go for angst)
    Jean-Luc Picard over James T. Kirk (I guess)
    Laverne over Shirley
    Bert over Ernie (and just about every other Muppet)
    The Subway over Quizno’s (this is whether by the former you mean the restaurant or the actual thing with the trains)
    Christmas over New Year’s (maybe when people start baking "New Year's cookies," it'll be a fairer context)

D. McEwan said...

Okay, I'lll keep this quick.

I drink Pepsi, unless there isn't any, in which case, I'll drink any cola.

I knew Dick Sergeant slightly, and he was a swell guy, so him over York.

For pain (and everything else), my medical marijuana. It may not end the pain, but it makes it more enjoyable.

I am sooo Superman over Batman. Gee, a happy, hot guy who flies, or a violent nuerotic who dresses up like a bat so he can beat up on other psychopaths, while introducing a young boy he dresses in tights and short-shorts to a dicy lifestyle, shady characters, and a lot of danger.

And while I'm at it, while I too grew up on George Reeves, come on. Chris Reeve's muscles weren't made of cotton padding. And overcoming total quadaplegia to act and direct again, as well as write books? Chris Reeve was Truly Superman. And bless the Reeve Foundation. Glad to see them commenting above. Good people doing great, important work. Meeting Chris Reeve was one of the best nights of my life. The most-inspiring man I have ever met.

What about: George Reeves or Ben Affleck? (As Supes, George. As a toyboy for a night, Ben.)

Bill Mahar, but Olbermann has a shot if he'll become an atheist also.

James Dean or Heath Ledger? Well both were hot, but I prefer lovers still breathing, contrary to rumor.

Definitely Ashton over Sheen. In fact, I'd pay to see Ashton top Sheen, but it has to be hardcore.

Even though Elroy Jetson was my dear friend Daws Butler, fact is, I've never watched The Jetsons even once, though I watched The Flintstones for years. I have no idea why.

Frasier over Cheers for me. I'm not a drinker nor a sports fan, so in reality, a sports bar is torture to me. I did love the show, but Frasier was about two gay brothers who never realized they were gay, and so was much more on my wavelength. But I love both shows. Seen every episode of both, multiple times.

Jake Gyllenhall when he was dressed as Maggie Gyllenhall on SNL. Now there was a "woman" I found hot, if a poor dresser.

I have always taken great taste over less filling, always, and in everything!

Disneyland! Where else? It's the only park Walt Disney himself ever walked. The others may be bigger and brighter and more modern, but on May 30, 1956, I saw Walt Disney in Frontierland with my own eyes. Disney World and the other Disney parks can never match that experience.

I went to EuroDisney and enjoyed it. Lovely place, and the French people there are so polite that you know they're just robots! But it's not the same. You're not walking in Walt's footsteps, and when, on the train into Frontierland, the narration said: "We are now entering the American West," all I could think was: "No. I live in the American West. This is France."

Tallulah Morehead said...

According to my autobiography I was CONCEIVED in 1896.

I was born on May 29, 1897, so I'm actually 114. What can I say, I was drunk, both when I wrote the comment above, and when I was born. Milk was Mother's Gin to me.

You get 0 marks for accuracy, and a -10 mark for gallantry. You get a bonus +100 marks for having read my book. My new one, Tallyho Tallulah, is coming out next year, around my birthday.

gottacook said...

Tallulah: Although I don't like vodka, I still feel the need to defend myself. I specified that I liked Cher in her 1980s movies (such as Silkwood, Come Back to the Five and Dime Jimmy Dean Jimmy Dean, Moonstruck, Mask, etc.) - in no way does this mean I endorse or even slightly enjoy what she's become since.

[My first exposure to Cher was on an 8-track tape anthology that came with our newish 1967 Pontiac station wagon, the first year GM offered a factory 8-track stereo deck; she sang Bob Dylan's "All I Really Want to Do." Only once have I heard a less appropriate cover version of a song: Eddy Arnold doing "My Sweet Lord" in a live performance I witnessed at the Allentown (PA) Fair when the song was new.]

D. McEwan said...

When I wrote above "I'll keep this quick," I meant of course, "I will now expound at length on matters of interest only to me."

A good Woody can give me a more than sufficient Buzz. And vice versa. (Which is how I like my vice: versa.)

Speaking of Woody: Mel, defintiely Mel. Woody is so pretentious. Mel just wants you to laugh. And Mel has many times been very nice to me. He did not kick me off the set of Young Frankenstein, which he certianly could have, as I had merely snuck in and had no business being there. Woody does not strike one as "approachable."

Also, Mel never screwed his underage stepdaughter. I'll bet if I were a hot teenage girl, Woody would seem highly approachable.

I am contracually obligated to choose Tallulah Morehead over Cher, no matter how gay I am.

New hot young Kirk over Shatner's Kirk? That is the question. And my answer is: new hot young Kirk, in large part because that way, he is not William Shatner.

For sex: Paul Rudd, major cutiepie. For making me laugh till it hurts, Paul Rudnick. (Also, in 1996 I won two, count 'em, two, acting awards, one presentnted to me by the late Miss Betty Garrett, for playing the ghost of John Barrymore in Paul Rudnick's play I Hate Hamlet. Thanks Paul, your jokes won me those awards.)

Rose Parade. Always watched it, every year of my life. I have never seen the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Big Balloon Procession.

The invention of home video vastly improved my personal Rose Parade viewing experience, since it permanently moved the parade's timeslot from "Ridculously Early on New Year's Morning, When Anyone Who Had Had a Decent - By Which I mean 'Indecent' - New Year's Eve Is Asleep" to "Some Evening Days, Weeks, even Months, Later When There's Nothing to Watch on TV." Plus, now I can fast-forward through all marching bands. The parade is so much shorter that way.

In 1967, when I was 17, I went to the Rose Parade in person and saw President Eisenhower ride by, apparently unscrewing an invisible lightbulb with his right hand as he rolled slowly by. You never forget seeing the man who defeated Hitler, no matter how kitchy the floats are.

The crutch over Adam Sandler, by a long, long way! My favorite crutch? Viagra. Tallulah's favorite crutch has always been liquor. In grade school, she once deliberately broke her leg, just so she could use vodka as a crutch.

Tallulah Morehead said...

Actually, the only one of those films I saw was Moonstruck, which I loathed. I could never take Cher the actress seriously. Come on. That one where she was a public defender and she wore a buckskin tassled-leather coat IN COURT AS SHE DEFENDED LAIM NEESON FOR MURDER! Good lord, how silly. Pauline Kael said that outfit "had nothing to do with being a lawyer, but everything in the world to do with being Cher." I was amused by her in Witches of Eastwick.

I am glad to say I have never been "exposed to Cher." Little Dougie tried to be exposed to Cher once, but he was apprehended in time.

Coke over Pepsi (Pepsi One over either)
Diane over Rebecca (Shelley Long, the second-greatest comedic actress from Fort Wayne, Ind.; the first is in my avatar)
Brady over Rodgers
Magic over Bird (better player and businessman)
Superman over Batman (wish Supes would return to his original New Dealer self)
Eva or Evan? (Marcia Cross over Eva, Ryan Zimmerman over Evan)
Ferguson over Kimmel (Craig is so real)
Adele over Barbra
Ledger over Dean (more versatile)
Witherspoon over Pieces (candy never won an Oscar or voiced Ginormica in "Monsters Vs. Aliens")
old HAWAII FIVE-0 over new (revived TV series rarely match the original)
Facebook over Twitter (a limit to 140 characters?)
Aflac over Affleck (he won't give me cash if I miss work, and never made a commercial with Yogi Berra)
Olbermann over Maher (Could the latter write a baseball blog? Didn't think so, either)
Mitch or Cam? (Huh?)
Claire or Gloria? (Ibid.)
Iron Man or Iron Chef? (Let me first see the 1931 "Iron Man," with Lew Ayres as a boxer, not a comic-book character, and Jean Harlow as his romantic interest.)
Kutcher over Sheen (Ashton's been an okay actor since "That '70s Show" -- whatever happened to Laura Prepon? -- but both he and Sheen have worn out their welcome)
Flintstones over Jetsons (the Simpsons trump both)
FRASIER over CHEERS (Jane Leeves, Eddie and Seattle > Boston)
Reeve over Reeves (I interviewed Christopher in 1997, a gallant man; even before his accident he'd been involved in many good causes)
Egg McMuffin or Breakfast Jack? (Pass.)
Great taste over less filling (quibble over 40 calories in one beer?)
Morehead over Cher (the latter doesn't post here, and that Oscar really should have gone to Sally Kirkland)
Rocky or Bullwinkle? (Mr. Peabody over either.)
IDOL or X-FACTOR? (Have never watched either.)
Elvis over Lou (EC's lyrical wordplay > Lou's comedic wordplay)
Costello over Andrus (without playing baseball, EC has more power)
Buzz over Woody (if only for "to infinity -- and beyond!")
Woody over Mel (if it's Allen vs. Brooks; if the "Mel" is Blanc and the "Woody" Woodpecker...)
Picard over Kirk (he wouldn't try to sell me something)
AMA Awards or ACM Awards? (Does it matter?)
Buck (Fox) or Buck (MIDNIGHT COWBOY)? (Let's switch the two; we'd at least get a baseball announcer with more enthusiasm.)
Laverne or Shirley? (Not sure, but I'll take Zelda over Hilda if we're discussing Sabrina's TV aunts.)
Macy’s over Rose (if I hear that phrase "granddaddy of them all" for the Rose Bowl one more time, no telling what I might do.)
Baltimore Colts or Baltimore Ravens? (Neither, as a Washington fan)
Cain over Thomas (Cain is funnier, and doesn't hold government office...let's hope he never will)
Pubic hair on Coke can or Pepsi can? (Not touching that one.)
COMMUNITY over ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT (if only because there's less of a "cult" around it)
Kim Kardashian or Jenna Jamison? (Implying their talents are similar?)
Subways over buses (thanks to GM, Firestone and other companies, streetcars don't figure into the debate. "Roger Rabbit" was right!)
Mays over Pujols (Mays did more defensively at a more challenging position. I wish both had been able to play in the Polo Grounds for their entire careers.)
Zombies or Vampires? (I'll take witches over either, especially if they look like Elizabeth Montgomery or Melissa Joan Hart.)
Gerry & the Pacemakers over the Zombies (if only for "I'll Be There," a beautiful ballad written by Bobby Darin, not to be confused with the fine Jackson Five song)
A crutch over Sandler (it's funnier)
Christmas over New Year’s

You can't choose between Mitch and Cam... imagine the tantrums if they found out?

Quick Friday Question:

Shows like Dallas and Rosanne have used the 'the last season/ last four years' was a dream plot twist. What is your opinion of this narrative technique and has it ever been used well in TV?

Tallulah darling, I love you and you're fabulous. Please accept my apologies. Had I known you were lurking about, I'd never have been honest. Now, do I get that voddy or what?

Paul Duca said...

Tallulah, good to hear from you. As you can see, I just got MeTV on my cable and have been catching up on shows I haven't seen in ages, even ones I never really was a big fan of, but It's so good just to have them around.
This morning they ran an episode of PETTICOAT JUNCTION with your prom date, the late Charles Lane.

George Reeves first. Chris Reeves second.

George Reeves was super-charismatic as the mighty man of "the real Don" steel.

I'll take Diane Chambers in a Batman outfit and Frasier Crane in a George Jetson outfit, along with Kathryn Janeway on a holo-Kindle that I get for Xmas in 2025.

Apparently I have not read you long enough Mr. Levine, but I have just discovered Ms. Moorehead. And I like her better than Cher too."


Isn't education a wonderful thing? I'd never heard of you, or Skippy either for that matter, and now we're old friends, avoiding Cher together. And it's "Morehead," with one "o". Cheers darling.

Thank you, VP81955 darling, but why should the Oscar that should have gone to me have gone to Sally Kirkland? It's bad enough they gave one to Cher. Anyway, the one that should have been mine went to that bitch Vivian Leigh - BOTH TIMES! I hate her guts! Her and Delores Delgado!

Thank you, An, for the wisdom of regretting your honesty. Telling the truth is always a mistake, one I have never made.

Paul darling, ah Charles Lane. I'm afraid I robbed the cradle with that darling youngster.

Tom Brady more than ever, after kicking that sanctimonious twit Tim Tebow to the curb today.

"Where's your Messiah NOW, Timmy"...or just puzzled why your evangelical Jesus didn't deliver today, even though you did your usual stint down on one knee in front of a packed stadium and millions of home viewers? They say he has "unwavering faith"--that's just another way to say "unfunctioning brain".

I liked pro football better in the old days, when running backs (e.g. Jim Brown) were as important as quarterbacks, occasionally more so. Rule changed ruined everything.

Ok Danrydel, you chose Cher over me (Did you think I'd stopped checking back?), so no Christmas vodka for YOU! Think Cher will give you any vodka? Nope.

WV: "rediness"

1. How someone spells "readiness" when they're not ready to.

2. An indefinable quality of groovy communists.
