A Few More Nuggets

1. Was anyone else a little pissed that the President’s speech came on when Family Guy was supposed to be on? Why can’t the president pick another night – like maybe when American Idol is on?

2. Burger King is now selling the Triple Whopper. Do you get a free tombstone with this? You have to sort of admire BK for blatantly not giving a crap about healthy foods, instead of masking things like Wendy’s and McDonalds.

3. I saw King Kong this weekend. It was o.k., but certainly not “the best movie ever made,” which some commercials were claiming. It was about ½ hour too long, and Jack Black was annoying in the movie. Also, that actor with the big nose – there were too many close-ups on him. You could see his brain through his nostrils.

4. Since the Eagles’ season is basically over, and their backup qb’s suck, they should do a promotion to allow a lucky fan in the stands to be a qb for the first quarter. How much worse can it be?

** Family Guy was postponed for about 15 minutes ... not like it was cancelled. If the networks can postpone The Simpsons while 2 crappy teams play overtime, they can give the President 15 minutes.

2. Burger King is now selling the Triple Whopper.
** Now if they showed Rodney Dangerfield eating the Triple Whopper and then performing the Triple Lindy, THEN I'll be impressed. (I'll accept the King doing the Triple Lindy.)

** Hollywood needs to show us that their actors actually have brains.

** I would hand it off every time. Absolutely no way I'd want to star in the Joe Theismann Compound Fracture Re-enactment.
** Better promotion: lucky fan gets to be an Eagles cheerleader for a half.

1. I'm a little more pissed that the president is spying on us.

2. If I were still in my earlier eating habits, I would have tried one by now. It just looks too evil.

For the record... the original triple whopper with cheese contains (from bk.com)

Calories - 1230
Calories from fat - 740
fat grams - 82
saturated fat grams - 32
cholestrol mg - 275
sodium mg - 1590
total carbs - 52
dietary fiber - 3 g
sugar - 11 g
protein - 71 g

That's a whole day of eating for me now. At least it has a few grams of fiber and a ton of protein. The calories alone are staggering.

But I bet it's damn good.

3. That actor would be Adrian Brody.

4. They can have me as quarterback for fishsticks and a ride home.

1. Moving the Prez to another time would have been good, but putting it in place of Idol, while sparing us to a greater extent, might prompt some producer to create a similar show about selecting an fictitious President. Highlights from such a show might even get Howard Dean off the hook.

BTW, does anybody have a count of how many Iraq speeches the President has made in the last month? Somebody needs to clue him in that nobody is listening, at least no one on the East or West Coast.

2. I'm curious as to how many bites it would take that "Black Widow" chick to finish one of those. Also curious to see how many cholesterol points someone could gain from eating one of those.

3. I also saw King Kong last Friday (having never seen previous renditions) and I can't remember that last time I laughed so hard (probably not the reaction Peter Jackson was going for). I hope they paid Naomi Watts a lot of money because she just surpassed Kate Winslet for playing a role most likely to be mocked for all time and eternity.

4. Scary to say, but it sounds like "reality show" material, but it would be more rewarding than Idol because we'd get to see some punk get pulverized (hopefully multiple times) by 300+ pound defensive linemen. Somebody call Rupert Murdoch.
