Friday Randoms 1/11

A few things I have been thinking about this week:

- I thought this was classic. Disney World is banning kids from one of their restaurants. Normally known for being about the most kid friendly place on earth the rats at Disney have said enough is enough! I guess they are making an attempt to give the parents at least a little break from mouse ears and hot dogs and kids running around all over the place. I bet you that place will be packed.

-I heard on the radio yesterday that Jessica Simpson's new nickname is Yoko Romo. Hilarious!!

- General Motors says cars that drive and park themselves are on the horizon, about a decade away. That's great and all that. I am sure they will be a big seller..but HELLO, HOW ABOUT STOP WASTING TIME AND MONEY ON THAT AND MAKE A CAR THAT GETS 100 MILES PER GALLON ON GAS ??

-Idiot of the week goes to Ryan A. Mueller of Wisconsin, It seems this guy was so desperate for cash that he broke into a house and was stealing money out of a two year old's piggy bank. Anyone else agree that we can suspend constitutional rights on this nimrod and give him life w/o parole? No one steals from a toddler's piggy bank in my book.

-Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s bar Whisky River is getting ready to open here in downtown Charlotte. Now I am not really into the going out to bar scene anymore but that might be a cool place to check out.

-Who knew that there were so many fans of Subway's Oil and Vinegar? Please keep voting in the poll. Voting ends midnight Sunday night.

- He might have some good things to say but Presidential candidate John McCain sure does look like a fossil.

- I received and e-mail from a marketing person with the radio station that I mentioned in this randoms post last Friday about the Matt and Ramona Show. (Hi Angela!) Pretty cool that she sought out this blog because I was talking about their show. Well I still like it and will continue to pimp Matt and Ramona as long as they keep reading.

- I wonder how old this Hannah Montana body double is?

- I am really looking forward to American Idol starting back up again. My wife is getting tired of watching political campaign news commentators (I am to a little bit) and we also have a little Idol contest every year to try and pick the winners. Any other AI fans out there?

- Here is some fantastic irony for you. The FBI is having their legal (and illegal) wiretaps that they fought tooth and nail for under the Patriot Act shut down by phone companies because they are terribly bad about paying their phone bills. Does anyone feel safer now?

- If you want a really good sandwich then go to Jersey Mikes and order a #2 "Mikes Way" without the vinegar. It's the closest thing I can find down south to the best sandwich on earth from Voltaco's in Ocean City New Jersey.

I like the car thing...lets say you get loaded. Just jump in the back seat and tell your car to drive you home.

Matt-Man said...

I love Subaway Oil and Vinegar as well. However, I use it for sexual purposes. Cheers!!

I just told my secretary (who is the biggest Cowboy fan alive) about Yoko Romo. I don't know if she will get any work done today. She is too busy calling everyone she has ever met to share the genius of the joke.

Shane I think we should change our nicknames to 'Oil and Vinegar'. What do you think? huh? huh?

Jay said...

Is it wrong that the only link I clicked was the Hanna Montana one? I'm joking. I had already read that story. ;-)

I'm allergic to out of control crowds of rednecks so I doubt I would go to Jr's bar. Unless he has virtual reality NASCAR rides there. Then I would be tempted to go.

Doc said...

Reggie - you would need a Jeep that would drive itself.

Matt-Man - Chicken breasts, hot dogs, oil an vinegar... I am not surprised.

Kelly - I am glad I made your secretary's day... And I see that you attended to the typo on your profile page... Whoopsie kinda Freudian ;-)

TMC - That's a better idea than Horsey and Sauce. BTW - I just was thinking about you. I heard the placenta song on the radio.

Doc said...

Jay - I included that Hannah Montana random just for you.

The Mountain Cat said...

Lightning crashes, a new mother cries. Her placenta falls to the floor......PALE BLUE COLORED EYES!

Jahooni said...

Ah, how sweet. Both of you now want to be Mr. Oil & Mr. Vinegar... I just want to WIN! I am very competitive...

I am hoping that American Idol this year is better than the last couple years... I got bored last year. I never finished watching it.

Doc said...

Jahooni - In that combo I am certainly Mr. Oil.

Jahooni said...

LOL-good choice indeed! Sorry TMC

Dana said...

Subway's Oil and Vinegar isn't even a real condiment - it's a frugal salad dressing!

Go Horsey Sauce!!

Jahooni said...

o&v... o&v....o&v.....

Doc said...

OUCH!!! you tell 'em Dana!

The war is on now!

Jahooni said...

Jahooni said...

You little brats!

DO I HAVE TO GO TO starbucks or to everyone that I know to get them to vote for Subway's O&V????

I was ahead today at work and now look.... ARHHHRHRHR!

Doc said...

You think you have more friends than I do ? Tisk Tisk... It looks like horsey sauce does have a bunch of fans....

Jahooni said...

BRATS!
Come on people, subway sammies don't taste the same with out it!
