I don't see South Park very often, but last night's (rerun?) was pretty funny.
The part that had me rolling was when the kids get taken into an alien spacecraft and the alien is trying to come up with a form he can take so the kids won't be freaked out by his appearance. So first he shows up as Stan's dad but the kids think that is "way too Contact" and that movie sucked, so he tries a bunch of other things like Michael Jordan, Don King, Ricardo Montalban and Tattoo, J.J. Walker, Missy Elliot, and the kids all shoot those ideas down. Finally the alien asks "All right, earthlings, what form do you want me to take?"
and Cartman says "How about a taco that craps ice cream?"
So then this Taco appears and while he's explaining all of this very serious stuff, little ploops of ice cream keep falling out of him.
Not exactly Oscar Wilde, mind you, but Christ was it funny.
The debut of Bubb Rubb explaining Whistle Tips on cars.
Now you can hang with Bubb Rubb and Lil' Sis on the Bubb Rubb Soundboard.
Scarlett Johansson now making out with girls.
Whoa whoa whoa...slow it down, sugar. Look what happened to poor Britney.
This Game is infuriating until you figure it out..
Then it is easy...and makes you feel kinda dumb for not getting it sooner.
This Ad for Coke that was made into a poster in South Africa in the '80s had subliminal dirty pictures in the ice cubes.
That reminds me, I think I may still have the Pepsi Can that said "SEX" in neon on the side...
Just finished Girlfriend 44 by Mark Barrowcliffe (384 pp, Hardcover).
Started slow, then got entertaining...almost as if Nick Hornby had re-written "Bridget Jones' Diary."
Nice story about my Cousin Julie and her miracle baby Lili that aired on Lansing TV.
Oh my God, all hail the Heavy Metal Cat.
I haven't laughed that hard since I saw a taco that craps ice cream.
Thought I'd mention that tonight is high school graduation for Ann Arbor schools at Chrysler Arena on Stadium at 5pm. Traffic is sure to be crazy, it may be a good idea to avoid the area.
