Well, I’m sort of drawing a blank tonight, so I’ve decided to write a simple blog about five things that truly puzzle me:
1. What the hell are the members of Fall Out Boy saying in the song, “Sugar We’re Goin’ Down.” I mean, I’ve read the transcripts at a lyrics website, but it just doesn’t seem right. There must be something more to it all, no?
3. What was John Edwards thinking? I mean, really, what in the world was he thinking? You’re running for president, a huge part of your appeal/message is your wife’s courage in fighting a horrible diseaseâ€”and you fool around with some video lady? Don’t you stop for a moment and think, ‘Hmm, perhaps winning the presidency is a tad more important than a hummer from Bambi in room 432 of the Vegas Holiday Inn?’ Why not just hire an expensive DC call-girl? Hit up a strip club? Go Larry Craig in Raleigh’s airport? Just don’t have sex with the video lady.
4. Why are Jets fans soooooo over-the-moon thrilled about Brett Favre? Yeah, he’s a legendary Hall of Famer with an arm about 1,000,000 times more powerful than Chad Pennington’s. But, uh, he’s ancient, and well, you’re the J-E-T-S. Think Boomer. Think O’Donnell. Hell, think Kenny O’Brien. Point: This won’t end well. No way.
5. Why is NBC coming out with a remake of Knight Rider? Seriously. There are, oh, 1,000 excellent old shows to chose from. Why not Chips? Or Silver Spoons? Or Highway to Heaven? Knight Rider? Seriously …
