I may like Canadians after all.  This is how the Canadian women’s team celebrated their win:

Pretty legendary, eh?  Obviously, (and lamely) the IOC is “investigating.”  I wouldn’t trust the IOC’s gauge of appropriateness though–let’s not forget that they chose Rio over Chicago for the 2016 games.

So party on my neighbors to the north; you may have beat the U.S. for the gold, but you’re ok in my book.

OMG, call the cops!!  Small Wonder (Season 1) has just been released on DVD!  The DVD gods read my mind!!  Now if they could just get Sisters on DVD, I’d be set. 

After watching this intro, I’m still trying to decide who was more annoying, Harriet or Jamie.  Thoughts?

 This got me to thinking of shows and intros I used to freakin’ live for.

The legend of all legends:

 

One of the cooler ones:

 

I spent wayyyyy too much of my youth watching Ricki Lake (FF to 1:15 for the intro):

One of a kind:

Can’t forget my favorite cartoons:


 

God I could go on forever:

Hahaha Doug was awesome!! I miss Skeeter, he was such a crazy mug:

Such a weird show.  A weird show I could never miss:

Ok, I think I have to stop myself here.  But you see the point, they just don’t make ’em like they used to!!

Because of the invention of cell phones, hand-less headsets, blue tooth etc. some people seem to be talking on their mobiles more than ever. I am thinking specifically of cab drivers and postal workers.

Whenever I get in a cab, the cabbie is always involved in some seemingly in-depth conversation. Whenever I pass a postal worker on the street I briefly think they are addressing me until I realize that they are on the phone. These two groups of people are constantly on the phone and I want to know who the fuck they are talking to.

I would venture to guess that cabbies are talking to other cabbies and postal workers to other postal workers. Because honestly, who has that much time to spend on the phone. I am talking hourson end. Not even someones mother would want to be on the phone with them for that long.

What earth shattering news must you relay as soon as it happens? These people must seriously have the most drama filled, exciting lives. Cabbie–did you pick up a crazy drunk in Wrigleyville? Postal worker–did you get into a near altercation with an ornery dog? I mean really, we’ve heard it all before, and so have the people on the other line. So do us all a favor, hang up the phone and do your job.

Along the lines of  “if you have nothing nice to say,” Steve T. brings us this gem:

“Submitted on 2010/02/12 at 11:48am by stevet@yahoo.com

If you aspire to be taken seriously as a writer, I recommend learning when to use and when not to use an apostrophe. Nuke them from the days of the week in all of your blog subjects. Please.”

There are three things to note.

1) If you are truly trying to pass on friendly advice, nuke the first part of your first sentence Stevie.

2) I went to school at Francis W. Parker and therefore I never learned grammar and will openly admit it. I also never learned geography.

3) An apostrophe is used to indicate possession. In the instance of “Random Shit Friday’s” which I presume our friend Stevie is referring to, it is a weekly round-up of Friday’s Random Shit. So really, the apostrophe is appropriate. Perhaps the sentence structure is not, but such is life when you are trying to coin a catchy blog phrase. Sue me. And while you’re at it, sue T.G.I.Friday’s.

If you involve yourself in Law & Order: SVU marathons on USA like I do, you undoubtedly have seen an ad for Burn Notice. This past weekend SNL read my mind with regards to these ads:

Now all I need to get is a video of AO doing his rendition of Burn Notice ads because that is way funnier than this skit!
