Random Things

"I am Twittering now! The revolution has gone viral!" (Using a capitalist web site, way to go.)

Random Things

~WWE Smackdown is shifting to “Syfy” Network: Why? Isn't the network supposed to be based on sci-fi and fantasy shows and movies? Last time I checked, WWE has nothing to do with those things. I'm not hating on WWE, but this isn't a good fit. However, I also feel the same way with G4. I think these networks have moved away from their core audiences. (MTV, I'm looking at you too.)

~Jonah Hex trailer: Hmm, I think Megan Fox is pretty terrible, but Josh Brolin looks good. I've been hearing some not too kind things about early previews of the film. I'll probably still see it though. But damn does Megan Fox sound terrible. What were they thinking?

~Halle Berry and her model boy friend split: Keep in mind that she has a child with this guy. She was smart enough not to marry him. I think she knows that marriage isn't for her.

~Crazy guy President Hugo Chavez is now twittering and he wants Fidel Castro to join Twitter. This just gives me another reason to hate Twitter. I don't hate Chavez like the conservatives do, I just think he's part of the bigger problem of the world using so many fossil fuels. At this point, I don't think even Fidel knows what planet he is on. So, do you really want him twittering about online? My goodness I hate Twitter.

Angel Puss

Angel Puss

Man, this is racist. It makes Song of the South seem tame.

And, this one is probably the most racist of the Censored Eleven. Yes, they actually bring back the damn “rattling of the dice” bit for this cartoon. Do we really go into a trace when we hear dice? I think not.

To my surprise, Chuck Jones directed this one. As some have stated, it does come across as mean-spirited.

Also, they actually show the damn black hunter shoot and kill the cat. Then nine ghosts come out to haunt the black character. This is probably the only thing that is funny in the film.

Is this racist? ((All This and Rabbit Stew))

Is this racist? ((All This and Rabbit Stew))

I kind of held off on this post because I was busy with other things, but got around to it because

This is one of the old censored eleven cartoons from the Loony Toon era. Tex Avery directed this cartoon back in 1941 and it was called “All This and Rabbit Stew”. According to the wiki page, this was Tex Avery’s last cartoon for Bugs Bunny.

Let’s get this out of the way. Yes, there is some racism in this cartoon. At the time, it was deemed okay to see foolish black characters that could barely put a sentence together. The design of the black hunter is closely based on the blackface routines one would see at the time. They were offensive at the time and down right mean.

The black hunter has shades of this throughout the 7-minute cartoon.

-He speaks with an over the top ignorant voice: This becomes extremely annoying. With the lazy eyes and droopy look were also stereotypes.

-Bugs Bunny used dice to defeat the Black Hunter: As if every black person can’t not resist the sound of dice rolling… This is probably the most offensive thing about the episode.

Yet, there are sight gags that were reused throughout most of the Loony Toons cartoon. I did laugh at the hunter turning into a sucker every time he was tricked. But, that doesn’t make up for the blatant racism. Focus is on how stupid the hunter is and the use of a racial stereotype to defeat him.

Maybe it is the time period this film was made that makes it come across as bad.

So, how does this compare another cartoon like say “Ali Baba Bunny”? I’m not 100% sure it is as racist, because Chuck Jones’s cartoons seemed a bit smarter and of better quality than some of the earlier stuff. But it is a good discussion.

This is the infamous dart-girl that randomly shot people with her blowgun.

I take back everything I sad about going over there.

Sadly, she actually looks like the type of person that would go around shooting darts at people. I hate when people fit the actual stereotype.

Notice the wolf tattoo on her chest.

I hate Ke$ha...

Don’t you want to touch her junk? I meant her music.

I hate Ke$ha...

This is not music, sorry. I want to punch myself in the ears to make it stop.

Listen, I hate sounding like a old man Semaj, but I really don't get why she is so popular. Young people seem to really like her music, but I just don't understand the appeal of listen to incoherent jumbled mess. Kesha's shtick is usually stumbling around acting drunk and sounding like she just received a head injury. If I wanted to see that, I just go to some dumb party and watch all the drunks girls stumble around. Because, that's SOOO appealing.

Young women, is this really what you want to be?

Funny enough, I only learned about her name a few weeks ago. A young guy told me about her. “Do you know Kesha?”

No, who the F' is that?” I asked.

She was the one that sung on that stupid “You Spin Me Round” remake.” The guy answered.

Then I realized how much I hated that song, despite the fact the entire song is about oral sex. Just listen to the lyrics. Somehow they took an already bad 80s song and turned it into a shittier song. That's no small feat. Under the lens of the 80s, it was a catchy pop song, now it is just bad as a remake.

I have to wonder if Kesha Rose Sebert can actually sing without that damn auto-tune machine? She sounds like a female version of Soundwave from Transformers. You think I'm joking but I'm not.

Music today has devolved into auto-tuned techno beats that don't actually bring much talent to the table. Because we've settled for the quick and easy (Twitter and Reality Shows), we get songs like “Tik Tok”. Shame on you, young people.

I guess some mad scientist took the DNA of Britney Spears and Lady Gaga and combined into a strange Venom like creature called Kesha.

It should be noted that Kesha does have one redeeming quality. She puked into one of Paris Hilton's closets. Yes, you heard that right. From EW, ((Totally separate occasion, but yes, that did happen. They stayed in my house in Nashville when I was 17. Then fast forward six months, I’m out in LA, and I sing background vocals for her second single. And then that night we went to her house and we were all dancing, hanging out. Then I got overexcited and ralphed in her closet. I thought it was a bathroom… and it just so happened not to be a bathroom. It was a closet. ))

I've heard of coming out of the closet, but puking in the closet? That pretty much ended her relationship with Hilton. And, that's the only thing I like about her. Because, I'm sure many people have puked in Hilton's closet (Ha-ha double entendre).

I got the idea of ripping into Kesha because of this funny video review.

Here's a review on Kesha's other monster hit Blah, Blah, Blah.

She needs to be stopped. Let's combined powers and stop her. It's morphing time!

Kristanna Loken Interview

Kristanna Loken Interview on (That Guy with Glasses)

Man, this is a great interview. Loken is one smart cookie. She knows that Linkara was joking on Boll.

She is very loyal Uwe Boll and she seems to jab at Linkara every time Boll is mentioned. Don't mess with the T3 chick. She is fully aware that nerds and geeks hate Mr. Boll. Spoony does a great job keeping her talking and kissing her ass, because she seemed to want to dig into Linkara.

Boobquake: I’m disappointed…yet pleased.

Boobquake: I’m disappointed…yet pleased.

When I heard about the idea of Boobquake, I thought it was a brilliant idea. I enjoy seeing the women in nice revealing outfits like every other man. Making all women wear these outfits all at once is even a smarter idea.

Boobquake was formed when an Iranian cleric claimed that revealing clothing on women caused earthquakes. Yeah, okay. Anyway, a Purdue University female student started a world wide organization call Boobquake. It is a holiday of sorts when women can wear revealing clothes in order to find out if an actual Earthquake happens when that much exposed female flesh is out in the open.

Sadly, there has been an earthquake. From AP news, ((TAIPEI, Taiwan – An earthquake struck off the southeast coast of Taiwan on Monday, causing buildings to sway briefly but no casualties or damage. The temblor was felt at the site of a massive landslide in northern Taiwan but did not hamper rescue efforts.

The 6.5-magnitude quake hit at 10:59 a.m. (0259 GMT), 195 miles (295 kilometers) off the southern Taiwan city of Taitung at a depth of 6.2 miles (10 kilometers), the U.S. Geological Survey said. The agency's initial report had put the quake's magnitude at 6.9.))

Oops, did Boobquake do that?

Well given that the entire world is in a state of flux with the landmasses moving, there’s always going to be minor earthquakes. Earthquakes happen all the time. I could say farting out in public can cause earthquakes and prove that an earthquake happened when someone let a big one out.

So, yeah, an earthquake did happen, but it wasn't the boobs that did.

From Wiki, ((An earthquake (also known as a quake, tremor, temblor or seismic activity) is the result of a sudden release of energy in the Earth's crust that creates seismic waves. Earthquakes are recorded with a seismometer, also known as a seismograph. The moment magnitude (or the related and mostly obsolete Richter magnitude) of an earthquake is conventionally reported, with magnitude 3 or lower earthquakes being mostly imperceptible and magnitude 7 causing serious damage over large areas. Intensity of shaking is measured on the modified Mercalli scale. ))

I see nothing about boobs or revealing outfits.

In the words of Dr. McCoy, “No body is perfect, Mr. Spock.”

Side Note: Because it is dreary and cold outside, I didn't see any of the celebrations of boobquake.

Beware of Dart-Girl (aka Paula Wolf)

Beware of Dart-Girl (aka Paula Wolf)

Have you ever taken a stroll through the city and all of sudden felt a sharp in pain in your chest? Come to discover, that pain was because someone shot a f’ing dart into your chest! Well, that actually happened to a few people in Wisconsin.

From The Wausau Daily Herald ((A 41-year-old Plover woman was charged with reckless endangerment after four people told police they were shot during a blow-darting spree in downtown Stevens Point.

Paula Wolf was arrested at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, less than an hour after four pedestrians told police they were shot with darts shot from a passing van.))

So, did she do the darting while driving? I also like the fact she actually went retro and used a damn blowgun. At a certain point, she thought, “I’m going to do it! I’m going to go on my dream dart shooting spree today!”

So, why did this woman in her forties go around shooting people with darts?

((Police said Wolf initially denied any wrongdoing but eventually admitted to shooting the pedestrians, none of whom was seriously injured, because "she liked to hear people say 'ouch'" when she hit them, according to police reports.))

That’s right, she did it for the “Lulz”…hearing people say ouch.

So, is she single? I’m thinking about going up to Wisconsin. I like dart shooting women...

Perhaps she got the idea from this ad...

New Nightmare

New Nightmare

I remember hearing my friend talking about hating the film when it came out. My friend bashed the film so much that it kept me from ever watching the movie. After watching it a few times recently, I’ve come to really enjoy the film. I think the film was ahead of its time.

I don’t like some of the FX shots, as they come across as being cheap. I also felt they should have pushed the Hollywood perspective a bit more. One has to wonder if this was going to be a start to a new franchise set outside the normal continuity. This was not the case when they released Freddy vs. Jason.

~The New Freddy Krueger design is pretty creepy. He now wears a black leather jacket and his makeup is different. He also has a green hat instead of the black hat. He doesn’t really joke as much as in the sequels. His glove is organic in this one. I kind of wished they kept this design for Freddy vs. Jason.

~Heather Langenkamp acting ranges from dreadful to passable. Even though I loved the first Freddy movie, Langenkamp wasn’t good in that movie either. However, I do like that they didn’t “sex her up” for the role, which many of the other Nightmare on Elm Streets did with the female leads.

~Haunting of Hollywood: They should have really played up that many producers and studio runners were being haunting by this Freddy Demon. There are hints of it throughout. There is even a scene where it is implied that the studio New Line was in fact getting phones calls from the Demon Freddy.

~Reality Twisting: The best part about the movie is the Demon Freddy changes the real world into the world of Nightmare on Elm Street. Some of the characters start behaving as their movie counterparts. The best part is when Freddy completely changes Heather’s world and forces her back into the Elm Street world.

Grade: B-

Tracy Middendorf: This was one of her early roles. I remember seeing her on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" playing Ziyal. She was the second actress out of three that played the role on the show. She has gone to be in a lot of popular TV shows and a few movies.

Lane Bryant ad too much ass and boobs? (Ashley Graham)

Lane Bryant ad too much ass and boobs?

Not for me. I call her prefect. And, the ad is very tastefully done. It is certainly not trashy like that stupid Paris Hilton Hamburger ad. The Lane Bryant ad is quick and to the point. The only question I have is this: Did she just go out in public with just a bra and panties on under a rain coat? God bless her.

Ashley Graham, the model in the ad, is extremely attractive. I really do agree with everyone in The Samurai Frog's blog comment section. There is this constant battle to keep full-figured women out of the modeling scene. I still can't get over the attacks from women inside the fashion industry making snide remarks about the lovely Christina Hendricks.

And, is the ad any different than all those stupid Victoria's Secret ads?

I hate Victoria's Secret. I hate the name and what the store represents. Why should I care that about what kind of secret Victoria has? STFU, Victoria and keep your secret to yourself.

Here's Ashley Graham's response to the controversy.

Damn, this makes me like her even more. She comes across as intelligent and reasonable.

So, if you ever decide to buy women's underwear, I'll be going to Lane Bryant to buy them. Not that I really have a reason to panties...

Side notes

-Headline News accidentally runs the Mc Rib parody video instead! WTF, HLN?

-More people add their thoughts on the issue.

VR Troopers (Cybertron Pilot)

The VR Troopers you didn't see...

I remember watching the show in the morning in syndication. What I didn't know about the show was that it was originally called “Cybertron”. And, it was originally supposed to star Jason David Frank (Green and White Power Ranger). The production went as far as Frank filming an entire episode.

It seems the show was only going to focus on one character instead of three.

From Wiki entry to VR Troopers, ((The production studio kept the name Cybertron Productions for the show's lifespan, similar to how Power Rangers kept the name of its original season ("MMPR Productions") until it closed in 2002. Jason David Frank was originally cast in the part of Ryan Steele. However, he had to withdraw due to his popularity on Power Rangers, prompting a return to that series. The theme to Cybertron would be reworked and became the Green Ranger theme ('Go Green Ranger Go') on Power Rangers. ))

I can see why they went in another direction with the show. Jason was really connected to the Green Ranger at the time and most kids wouldn't see him as another character.

Now, I think the show would have worked if they had made this a direct spin-off from the Power Rangers. The writers decided to write off the Green Ranger and Tommy from the show. During this time, they could have easily revealed that Tommy ended up here becoming a VR Trooper.

Here's a very rough cut of the original pilot.

Random Stuff

Random Stuff

~Carl Macek died: Who is Macek? He was the dude that produced Robotech from three different Japanese series for North American audiences. I tried watching these shows recently, and they certainly don't make that much sense.

~Spartacus: Blood and Sand: I tried getting into this series, but something about it just doesn’t feel right. It has a strange 300 vibe that doesn’t really fit with the TV format. There is a lot of CGI blood that is annoying. It is a cross between 300 and Gladiator. The modern rock music is also annoying. There is a lot of female and male nudity. But the best part is seeing Lucy Lawless naked a lot. Yes, Xena gets naked.

~The Green Lantern's suit will be CGI: I have no problem with the suit being CGI because the recent GL stories make the ring a bit more powerful. The ring creates the suit in the new continuity.

~Something lit a fire under Lindsay Lohan’s father because he finally seems to be on the ball with checking up on Lohan. Someone really needs to put her in a treatment center. I love the fact she blames Dr. Drew for Michael Lohan taken up a new stance. I don't trust him, but he's certainly trying to get her into treatment.

Men in Black 3 is a go...with Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith...

Men in Black 3 is a go...with Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith...

From Showbiz 411, ((Director Barry Sonnenfeld tells me that “Men in Black 3-D” is ready to roll. Will Smith has signed on, Tommy Lee Jones is in, and a script is awaited. ))

Did the world ask for another Men in Black movie after the mess that was MIB2? I guess making up for the poor writing the 3D is an okay move. The problem is MIB was too much without the clever writing of the first movie. It was just one big ad. They have to keep the tone of the first movie in order to get people excited with this follow up.

Now that Will Smith is a little bit more kooky because his association with Tom Cruise and his church, it might be interesting to see him taking up another movie he takes on aliens. Now, he really believes in space aliens...I guess.

Will they have another Will Smith song?

Did he just erase our minds?

I find it funny that the alien in this video is the one that gets killed in the first few minutes of the video.


Did I just see Will Smith's son?

Up in the Air

Up in the Air

Up in the Air is an amazing film that balances drama and humor almost effortlessly. Jason Reitman’s direction has finally reached a maturity that puts him up there with some of the better directors out there. Having George Clooney in your movie doesn’t hurt either.

Ryan Bingham (Clooney) has a job firing people from their own jobs. Big companies hire him to gently let go their employees. Bingham enjoys his life of disconnect because he’s always flying from city to city without spending much time in his own home. His world of comfort is turned upside down due to a new hire (Anna Kendrick) changing the way his company does business.

There are moments when you will feel uncomfortable with many of the “They’re letting you go” scenes. These scenes are extremely dark because we see the reactions from the people that get fired from the companies they work for. Many of the people fired by Clooney are in fact real people. It is interesting to see the honest reactions from these real people when they get the news that their company is firing them. All these scenes are bleak and very honest. I enjoyed every minute of it.

The other aspect of the film is George Clooney’s character taking the young Anna Kendrick under his wing to show her his side of work. The teacher/student dynamic is touching and Kendrick is very enchanting and wide-eyed in this role. I really liked her. Clooney is impressive as usual. Look for a great scene with J.K. Simmons also. Vera Farmiga kind of plays the love interest to Clooney’s characters. There is a twist with this character that I will not give away.

The only portion of the movie I didn’t like were the wedding scenes with Clooney dealing with his family. I felt they dragged the movie down just a bit.

Up in the Air is a nice little movie that has a lot to say about life and the choices we make. Up in the Air isn’t prefect, but it was surprisingly a very solid film that shows Jason Reitman’s direction and writing has improved over the years.

Grade: B+

Random Thoughts

Random Thoughts

~The History of Sega Saturn: I remember coming out of high school and watching the ads for the new systems. What I did like was that Sega built to be expanded. It is a real shame they never fully used the expansion bay.

~Cute girls saying “Hey, Guys” to the web camera: Someone put a lot of work into this one. It is worth it. Why are there some dudes in this one though. Is there a cute girl union that says they have to say “Hey, guys”.

~Christina Hendricks is the sexiest woman in the US by Esquire: I couldn't agree more. She is damn super sexy. I love that a full-figured women beat other women out of that honor. I'm sure the fashion industry hates that fact, because they've attacked her on numerous times.

~Silver Streak: Man, this came on cable and it brings back memories of watching this movie back when I was a little kid. I was really into trains and this movie took place mostly on a train. Yes, the black-face scene is very funny. I don't think they would get away with it in this age. Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder are great together in this action comedy.

~Worst Back to the Future parody ever...

~I so glad Thunder over Louisville is finally over. I haven't been down there in years for the fireworks. I guess we should be proud because it is the largest fireworks show of North America.

~MC Guru from Gang Starr is dead: Holy, crap I didn't know he was sick. I really dug his music and thought he could flow. Supposedly, his family and he didn't get along too well.

~Google streetview takes 43 photos of the same woman! I know of someone that did see some of their friends on the site. I'm still looking for my car and me on the site. I do recognize a few people I've seen in my travels.

~lesbian shitasses? Scott Baio, what the hell does that even mean? And, let's not forget that most people have forgotten what Baio has done to become famous. But, Lesbian Shitasses is not even a word.

Dr. Drew controversy with Lindsay Lohan

Dr. Drew controversy with Lindsay Lohan

I’ve come after Dr. Drew in the past for backing down when he went, rightfully, after the Church of Scientology. When the Space Church put some heat on him, he backed down like a coward and apologized. But, this time I’m in full support with him on this controversy.

Dr. Drew spoke about Lindsay in a Radar Online interview. That was when people starting making a big deal out of it.

Here’s what he said that supposedly got him in trouble with stupid Lohan supporters. From MSNBC, ((“If she were my daughter, I would pack her car full with illegal substances, send her on her way, call the police, and make sure she was arrested. I would make sure she was not allowed to get out of jail,” he told the Web site. “I would then go to the judge and make sure she was ordered to a minimum of a three year sobriety program.”))

I hope people don’t think he would actual do this. Basically, he is saying that something drastic needs to happen to her to get her the “forced” treatment that she needs to survive. That’s right to survive because she is in danger of killing herself with an overdose or alcohol poising. Or, she’ll kill herself when she is completely out of money.

Drew goes on to expand on the idea. ((“When I was asked as a father, if I were in Michael Lohan’s position, what would I do to help my daughter, I am clear that I would go to any lengths to get her to and retain her in treatment. Bringing legal consequences to bear is often the only alternative,”))

I can tell you that I have a family member that has had a constant battle with substance abuse and has for decades. He’s had the government butt in and force treatment and house arrest on him. I’m not for big government, but it does have a place when it comes to substance abuse. We need to force more substance users into treatment and less into jails and prisons.

Keep in mind that Lohan really needs drastic help right now, because she’s about to hit rock bottom. She’s partying all the time, and she’s in some serious debt. Dr. Drew is right in principle. And, other than Machete coming up, she has nothing planned in her acting career.

So, all you people outraged at Dr. Drew, get that huge stick out of your asses and relax. Lindsay Lohan doesn’t need you defending her substance habits.

Anyway, here’s Dr. Drew’s response to the entire BS.

Amber Lamps: The Legend

Amber Lamps: The Legend

If you didn’t know, Amber Lamps is the nickname people have given to the woman with the headphones and purple skirt during the Epic Beard Man Saga. She just sat there not worrying about a damn thing while the world fell apart around her.

To me, she looks like she walked right out of the early 90s with big headphones and strange outfit. Given that the Internet digs up everyone’s name and history, I’m surprised no one has discovered her name and interviewed her. She remains a mystery even today. Where’s Leonard Nimoy with his “In Search of” show when you need him?

I did some digging, and I only discovered one item supposedly about her, but I am not sure it is true. On the Tosh.0 site, someone claims that they know her. From jtinsanfrancisco, ((i can't believe melissa has been dubbed amber lamps! she is a good friend of mine and was on her way home in the city from class in oakland. she knows about her new found fame, but it is really getting old. she told me that people have sent her emails from norway and turkey, but the line was totally crossed when a random guy stopped her in front of her apartment. ))

The best part is there are even stuff out there with Amber Lamps t-shirts and other items to buy.

Has the famous Amber Lamps gone into hiding?

Why did she pick purple?

What was she listening to on her headphones?

This is sad, but I am fully aware of who Faye Reagan is.
Is Amber Lamps a time traveler? She was there when Oswald was shot.

Matthew Clemmens: Pukeminator (A Phillies’ fan vomited on off-duty police officer and daughter)

Yes, ladies, he's single.

A Phillies’ fan vomited on off-duty police officer and daughter

I generally am not a huge fan of sports or sporting events, but my biggest gripe comes from the actual sports fans. They can be rude, crude and ready for food. They will spill their beers on you and shout out f’words and other strange things.

But this story takes it a step further. From New York Daily News, ((A Phillies fan vomited on a dad and his 11-year-old daughter during a game at Citizens Bank Park this week - and the angry dad says the foul mouth did it on purpose.))

Throwing up on someone trumps spitting on someone.

Here’s the best line in the story. (("I turned around and looked at him and saw the most disgusting thing," said Michael Vangelo, an off-duty cop attending the Wednesday night game with his two daughters and the older girl's boyfriend. ))

I think he was actually talking about the way the guy looked and not the fact he was trying to make himself barf. He looks like he can upchuck an entire sea of puke.

So, why did this turd decide to puke on an 11-year-old girl and her dad? ((Swearing led to spilled beer, and eventually one man hawked up phlegm that got onto Vangelo's daughter's hooded sweatshirt. The off-duty cop was fed up, so he called security over and had the spitter thrown out.))

Who are these guys? Cavemen, Pirates? Matthew Clemmens, the puke guy, got mad and decided to take things into his own hands.

Really, who throws up on an 11-year-old girl? What a piece of crap.

Like any sane person would do, the Pennsylvania cop beat the troll up. Clemmens found himself in jail, where is still is today.

But wait there's more! I went on Facebook and discovered three pages supporting and against him!

South Park: 200

South Park: 200

Simply put, South Park’s 200th episode is a very meta-self referential parody on itself. I knew I had to watch this episode because it marked the return of Tom Cruise back on the show after ripping his religion and reputation took on the episode “Trapped in the Closet”. It didn’t disappoint. This episode nearly (amusingly) crosses the line of “breaking the fourth wall” throughout. And, this is best part about the episode.

Tom Cruise is working in a factory packing fudge into boxes, thus making him a fudge-packer literally. The South Park kids call him a “fudge packer” and he takes great offense to that and decides to team up with every celebrity that the show has made fun of over the years. The celebrities threaten South Park with a class action lawsuit. Yet, there is another group wanting to interfere too.

There is another subplot that I will not get into, but will cause some trouble for the show.

All the famous storylines from the past 199 episodes are touch upon here in this jammed packed episode. I enjoyed the Super Friends references to the thinly veiled attacks against scientology. Probably the best animation in the show is the new Mecha-Streisand 2.0. That animation is impressive.

For a 30-minute episode, there aren’t really any slow parts in the story. I really enjoyed this episode and can’t wait for the second part.

Grade: B+

-Was there a Lost moment thrown in at the end with the cliffhanger?

-Tim Burton deserved the bashing he got in this episode. It is about time someone makes fun of this guy.

-The characters even make fun of the rehashed jokes in the show.

Xenu won't let you pack fudge, Tom.
