George Clooney & Matthew McConaughey – OUTED

WOW, I would never have thought that George Clooney and Matthew McConaughey were both gay. I certainly would never in a million years guessed that they would hook up in a very attractive bit of manwich.

I found this out from People Magazine, just look at the cover Sexy Men in Love:

Clooney - McConaughey

Opps, on second look maybe they have girlfriends after all.

Geez, maybe they should make the women a bit more obvious than they did? At first glance it looks like George and Matthew are the ones in love. You have to wonder if they did that on purpose to attract attention, or are the people doing the “artwork and layout” hammerheads?

How I saved the flight out of BFE

I find Apple commercials to be insipid little pieces of living hell. The commercials are a bit too smug and self-righteous for my liking. I am sure the Mac-Faithful eat them up like a pig to swill, but for me they are annoying.

Anyways, the latest iPhone commercial centers on a pilot that is grounded due to bad weather. While waiting, he uses his iPhone to check the local weather conditions and discovers that the storms are passing. He notifies the tower (not sure if he used the iPhone or used the tin cup and string that his plane is equipped with?) that the storms are passing and that his plane can take off soon.

Let me get this straight. The PILOT is looking up weather data on his iPhone instead of using the high-tech data that is readily available to aviation professionals in general? Is he piloting a flying doghouse that he sits on top of?

Where is this airport that is so clueless about weather? Does the control tower have a rope hanging out on their back porch door with a sign that says:

If the rope is moving it is windy.
If the rope is wet then it is raining.
If the rope is dry it is sunny.
If you are reading this then welcome to BFE Airport, Gateway to ignorance.

Really, anyone that uses the internet with the iPhone knows how slow it is. Radar photos, especially animated ones are big. By the time the iPhone loads the image the season would have already changed. Perhaps he connected via Wi-Fi? Maybe the plane was near a Starbucks? Nah… what are the odds anyone would ever be that close to a Starbucks since they are so rare.

This commercial is just stupid! The iPhone is slick. No question there, but PLEASE do not insult my intelligence with this crap!

A helpful guide for discussing “ED” with your 8 year old.

A few weeks ago we were watching a football game and I did not mute the TV when the game went to a commercial. Unfortunately instead of seeing an oh-so rare Coors Light Commercial we were treated to a Cialis commercial.

I honestly do not remember which Cialis commercial it was. Just some shots of anxious guys eating dinner with nervous dates with hopeful “did he go to the pharmacy” looks on their faces.

While all this was going on the deep voiced announcer talked about the sad and serious business that is ED and how it can be addressed. So about this time my 8 year old son asked me, “Daddy, what is ED?”.

Great, this is REALLY what I want to talk about with my son. Don’t get me wrong, we have had talks with him about how all the plumbing works and what is what but do I really need to school my 8 year old on the intricacies of erectile dysfunction?

Maybe if I was a bit more politically correct and this was an ABC After School Special I would have paused the game and fetched a firm cucumber and explained how when the cucumber gets old it wrinkles up and can not be used in a hearty salad. When this happens the cucumber can only be made hard again via a “Pickling Processä”, where once again it can be used to liven up a salad (assuming it is Kosher).

As it stands I just said, “huh, what?”, and then answered NO, never heard of it and it will NEVER happen to me or you. Then we went outside and I practiced throwing a football through a tire swing, subtle…

Thanks guys!

The Biggest Loser

I have to come out and say it, we as a society are idiots. We have to be idiots if this is what we are watching and calling entertainment. Despite what you are thinking right now I am not some sort of chiseled Adonis, I am tubby, but I would not want to make a show about me losing weight (unless something threw large amounts of cash at me to do so).

Here we have a show that in it’s essence is about people sitting on their couches/lazyboys/patio furniture watching fat people lose weight. It makes me wonder will we be seeing grass growing or paint drying competitions in the future?

Coming in the Fall of 2009 to NBC, “The Grass is Greener“, in a neighborhood with yards gone bad see which challengers grass will grow faster…

Losing weight, hey, I am all for it, but do we need to have the tension ratchet up like they do every week? Well yes actually, who the heck would watch it otherwise?

I came in on the weigh in portion, I have to ask myself, do we need to see such an array of “manboobs”? Some of the guys probably have nicer racks than the women do, just a lot more hair. Couldn’t they have them wear a Manzier or a Bro or a tank top?

I digress, if it was a 1/2 hour show, with them working out, maybe messing around and doing goofy stuff and then weighing in, I might be able to stomach it (get it, funny). Watching the trainers clinch their little metro-sexual fists and pump them furiously when their team wins, that is too much “tension”.

Opps, I am really losing interest in writing any more about this, avoid it like a diet menu at Dennys..
