  5. How much of a jaded asshole have I become? A bunch of carolers are singing outside my apartment complex and I just wish they'd shut up and go away.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Get out of my parents house!

    ReplyDelete
  7. What's up everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  8. It's funny how old people slag millennials when they're the generation that raped the economy and plundered the planet.

    ReplyDelete
  9. And those two things showed some real fucking gumption.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Simpsons episodes focusing on Lisa are the worst.

    ReplyDelete
  11. You want the deck the halls...with their blood!

    ReplyDelete
  12. And grit, too.


    And moxie.



    And spunk.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It's like the Game of Thrones Sansa chapters...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Chock full of grit, those folks

    ReplyDelete
  15. Lisa the vegetarian is one of the best ever.

    ReplyDelete
  16. False! I love Lisa/Homer episodes

    ReplyDelete
  17. They've had one good episode that I can remember. The rest is her being overly preachy and annoying.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Lisa's Pony is great stuff too. And Lisa's Rival.

    ReplyDelete
  19. You're in an irritable mood today. Carolers, Lisa Simpson...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Lisa is annoying by nature.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Backlash 06 for me. Don't think I've ever seen this.

    ReplyDelete
  22. "I'm still trying to figure out volleyball, it seems like it's just screaming and high fives."


    My fresh-out-of-school reporter is hilarious to listen to.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I liked the one where she sees her future getting engaged to a British guy.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ohhh yeah you're in the newspaper game...I'm sorry lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lisa's Substitute is one of the best ever, but that was a looong time ago.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The pig cuff links and "Steel Wheelchairs Tour" are the best.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's the only job for me.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Has WWE calmed down a little on shilling the Network, or have I just tuned it out? I feel like I haven't heard as much about it on RAW and Smackdown.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I did it for about five years, I really enjoyed it, but it wasn't financially feasible. With my new job upcoming, I'll have time to freelance again.

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's ubiquitous, probably just not noticing it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. There's also these: http://i.imgur.com/B6dlj.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  32. After losing the title to Cena at Royal Rumble, they should have Brock Lesnar get on the mic and call himself "a big fat piece of shit".

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm running a little weekly, so the lower expectations are nice, I just inherited the print shop side so now I'm kind of doing two full time jobs but at least I'm getting paid accordingly. It's a little much but soon I'll be married so I'll want to always be here anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  34. We should already be about a decade past that point...

    ReplyDelete
  35. .......Yes!


    Some people say Marge-centric episodes are the worst, but they're just crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Barely counts. Thinking it is easy. Acting on it is the key.


    Unleash your anger.

    ReplyDelete
  37. M.A.S.H. was shit.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I will keep on telling you... I want more dumb reporter stories. They're the best. As a someone who was in journalism for a couple of years before just saying, "Screw it," and going into freelance writing and teacher instead, I want to hear about the poor souls who continued on the path. And as a follower of many niche sports, I have seen some pretty dumb reporters who refuse to research beforehand.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wait, I started an NK debate and didn't get a chance to finish it?

    ReplyDelete
  40. At least you are making a decent wage, not many in that profession can say that. I spent my time at a 20-25k daily in nowhere PA.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think it's interesting that so many Americans will get riled up over their right to be a jerk. "I should be able to make fun of assassinating another country's leader! I should be able to say whatever racial slurs I want! Nothing should have consequences!"

    ReplyDelete
  42. I was enjoying it, so I put a spin on it and carried on. I'm expecting someone to start yelling at me in all-capitals a-n-y m-i-n-u-t-e now.

    ReplyDelete
  43. You are Lisa Simpson.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I had someone I called last week ask me if I was "that asshole from taxwatch."


    The whole time he was giving me information but kept going "assuming you are who you say you are"

    ReplyDelete
  45. It's in the raw reunion thread. For all I know it's still going on.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh. I was talking NK in the daily thread. Endlessly fascinated by that place and have always wanted to go

    ReplyDelete
  47. He's really good, loves the sports gig which is odd because it's like double A high school stuff here but he's all in. It's just fun listening to my guys talk to each other when they think I'm not listening.


    I don't blame him for not being passionate about high school volleyball, I haven't gotten any letters saying he's bullshitting too badly so whatever, carry on, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  48. If he can write stuff that funny, I'd give him a front page feature everyday. That's wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I once had to cover high school gymnastics. I just felt creepy

    ReplyDelete
  50. Nowhere's the place to be really, there's still a use for print advertising in most nowhere's.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I posted this idea last night in one of the Rollins-Cena-Lesnar-Reigns related threads, but I don't think many people saw it, so here it is again. Not saying it's a good or bad idea, just an idea:

    Rollins gets all chummy with Brock and Heyman leading up to Royal Rumble, to the point where it's not suspicious at all that he'd accompany Brock to the ring for his match with Cena. As Brock (who comes out first) is making his entrance, however, Rollins clocks him with the briefcase, then clocks him with the belt, then curb-stomps him on the floor. A ref's already there, of course, ready to work the Brock-Cena match. Cash-in, pin, Rollins is the new champ.

    Just as Rollins is sprinting up the ramp before Brock wakes up, however, Cena comes out like "Whoa, you're not going anywhere." Cena has a contract saying he's guaranteed a title match tonight, and that match starts NOW. Cena-Rollins happens, Cena wins.

    Later in the show, Rollins enters the Rumble (which he was scheduled to do anyway), now desperate to regain a title shot. But then an insanely pissed-off Brock enters the Rumble -- because he destroyed Adam Rose in the back, or Heyman paid somebody for their spot -- wanting Rollins' blood. His obsession over getting to Rollins leads to Brock being eliminated eventually, so Reigns still wins the Rumble and gets his WM title shot.

    Now you have Reigns-Cena for WM31 and Brock-Rollins. The departing Brock (now a babyface) can put up Rollins on his way out, and Reigns gets his WM coronation over Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  52. You're clearly not in the Christmas spirit. I can't say I am either.

    ReplyDelete
  53. atleast with adding some TNT, some ECW, Primetime, etc. they have something more to shill.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I worked on the production crew in college. We covered all the home volleyball games and man there was a ton of high-fiving.......and jiggling.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Scott did a bunch of rants on M.A.S.H. A long time ago.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I've never really given him a chance, that's not really my philosophy. We're tiny, this is a place to come for two years and get your footing in the basics and move on to what you actually want to do.


    I should ask him though, just to see what he says.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Random question.


    What exotic pet would you like to own if you have the finances and means?


    Cheetah, with a leopard a close 2nd.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I liked the one where Alan Alda took a mess of peyote and started calling everyone 'my dog'. And I think I only dreamed that one. Other than that - urrgh. I liked the film though.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Red panda. I'd glandly give up my man card for one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Since Scott skipped it in his 96 Raw review I'll ask here. What exactly was the Raw Bowl?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Very true...and our paywall online was actually successful because everyone moves the hell away and wanted to keep up with what was going on locally.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'd just take a regular panda

    ReplyDelete
  63. Would people please STOP coming up with ideas which are better and make more sense than the ones we'll end up with? It's not good for morale.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Very interesting choice. Any particular reason?

    ReplyDelete
  65. It's what Titus O'Neil ate on last Thanksgiving's Smackdown.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I find it ironic that a country founded due to the religious intolerance of its early settlers e.g. those who landed at Plymouth Rock, who wished for land where they could preach their own intolerant and fundamentalist version of their religion, and who then wiped out the people of America using chemical warfare, is itself now dedicated to wiping out those who use terrorist means such as chemical warfare to practise their religious intolerance.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Ocelot. It's technically a "big cat" but it's not as big as a leopard or anything like that.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Dean and Bray are brawling all over the arena. They make their way back to the ring where Bray hits Ambrose with a chair so hard it sends Dean back 18 years where he believes he is Brian Pillman. He notices that he is in Cincinnati, Ohio and sitting on a living room couch. He has a gun in his right hand and here's glass shatter. It's Austin! Austin has broke into his house. He pulls the gun out to shoot Austin and a BANG! flag pops out and the recoil from the gun shoots green paint into his face. He wakes up back in the ring with Wyatt. Bray hits the Sister Abigali and gets the pin.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Just wanted to say that your work stories are tied with the "Sister Abigail for the pin" meme as the best content currently running on this blog.

    Oh, and Scott's posts too, I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Not super exotic, but I've always liked the caucasian ovcharka, the dog they use to hunt bear, I'd name him Bear Dog. Actually I'd just call him whatever he told me to.

    http://i.imgur.com/3N0bR.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  71. I thought Wrestlecrap inducted it at some point (and their point of view on it would be the funniest), but I can't find it. Anyone else want to take this one?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 17, 2014 at 6:03 PM

    The wrestlers wore football jerseys and it was a four team elimination match, I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  73. The time travel left me skeptical but you really saved it at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  74. They look like this:

    http://redpandanetwork.org/blog/wp-content/gallery/redpanda/main-panda-fat.

    And I'm sure I can get plenty of attention from the ladies with one.

    ReplyDelete
  75. That thing is fucking huge.

    ReplyDelete
  76. mongoose but it'd probably kill me

    ReplyDelete
  77. There were penalties and timeouts, too, I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Most of the ideas people come up with are far worse.

    ReplyDelete
  79. See, now you just make me want to watch it

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oh Jesus Christ.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I know what they look like. But I guess that's why you want one.


    To me, they're just an endangered raccoon.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Oh yeah, it's definitely stupid enough to watch and enjoy. Along with Dok Hendrix and the Raw Band or whatever the hell they were called

    ReplyDelete
  83. I just like imagining having such a well trained Bear Dog that people flee in terror from blocks away when I walk him. You could easily clear beaches with a dog like that.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 17, 2014 at 6:06 PM

    Final Jeopardy clue from tonight:


    The category: AFI's 100 Greatest Films


    One of the top twenty, this 1946 film was based on a short story published as "The Man Who Was Never Born".


    All three contestants screwed the pooch on this one, which surprised the hell out of me. GO!

    ReplyDelete
  85. "He notices that he is in Cincinnati, Ohio "


    Nobody knows where they are in Cincinnati, Ohio. They're too high on prescription meds to distract them from being in Cincinatti, Ohio.

    ReplyDelete
  86. What Is It's A Wonderful Life

    ReplyDelete
  88. what? did they do a halftime show or something?

    ReplyDelete
  89. My guess as well

    ReplyDelete
  90. Really good film with james Stewart in it.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 17, 2014 at 6:07 PM

    HOW DID NO ONE GET THIS??


    They went with The Invisible Man, Citizen Kane and The Third Man.

  92. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 17, 2014 at 6:07 PM

    Why am I not surprised that Hogan is the first one out?

    ReplyDelete
  93. And yet many are still better than the ones that make the screen.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Because you read the spoilers?

    ReplyDelete
  95. I'm scary good at Jeopardy! depending on the category.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Yeah, we're actually able to squeeze some dollars out of the site too.


    I'm getting ready to start up a Spanish-speaking circular that will go to all he addresses in the county. That's either going to be amazeballs or I'm getting fired.

    ReplyDelete
  97. So Dean loses tonight when his shoe laces are tied together?

    ReplyDelete
  98. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 17, 2014 at 6:08 PM

    No, when was this taped?

    ReplyDelete
  99. I read Hogan.


    I stopped my nature show to switch to WWE.


    Goddammit.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Nope, it was on a regular edition of Monday Night Raw.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Lol you did demographic research correct?

    ReplyDelete
  102. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 17, 2014 at 6:08 PM

    I clean up on movies, music, most sports and various pop culture. Science and art kill me.

    ReplyDelete
  103. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 17, 2014 at 6:08 PM

    He trips on a helmet.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Everyone pretended they didn't know who voiced The Great Gazoo too, we're raising a country where it's cool to be dumb.

    ReplyDelete
  105. A North Korean. I'd pet him, I'd wash him... but I wouldn't feed him.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Are you a snake of some kind?

    ReplyDelete
  107. This studio owns the rights to Spider-Man. Un-fucking-believable.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Mid December during the week is the worst for sports

    ReplyDelete
  109. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 17, 2014 at 6:10 PM

    Harvey Korman was all over that animated cash money flow.

    ReplyDelete
  110. "too long didn't read"

    ReplyDelete
  111. This seems no different from a normal North Korean.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I was talking about the purpose of the band. Was it a marching band or just a house band?

    ReplyDelete
  113. hehe riki tiki tavi

    ReplyDelete
  114. February says hello

    ReplyDelete
  115. I'm still half-surprised that they never ran with that angle for Vickie Guerrero, knowing what they're like.

    ReplyDelete
  116. wow!! that thing is huge

    ReplyDelete
  117. I could swear the band was there for more than one episode, but it wasn't an official halftime show. Late 95 and early 96 is a semi fun period for WWF. They were trying new things. Some worked and some didn't

    ReplyDelete
  118. At least you have conference season winding down in college basketball and get some decent games.

    ReplyDelete
  119. The summer right after the NBA finals is the
    worst

    ReplyDelete
  120. Of course, not that it was super necessary, we're totally ag-based so the overwhelming majority of the people around here speak Spanish at least as a second language, a huge percentage as a first.


    I think it will work, it's free to the customers, saturates a shit load of area so I can basically make it a 4-8 page wrapper for inserts, that's the real idea.

    ReplyDelete
  121. My Raw Bowl curiosity has been down the wrestlecrap rabbit hole. What's this thing about Bret swearing at Michael Buffer that's listed on here?

    ReplyDelete
  122. MLB is usually in full swing(If you like that kind of stuff) and training camp for the NFL is like a month away.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Has Cena done his entrance with a marching band before? I feel like I saw him on stage with FAMU one time...

    ReplyDelete
  124. And seriously EVERYONE knows that.

    ReplyDelete
  125. eh, it's hit and miss. I still think now is better cause there is NFL Saturday AND Sunday for two weeks, I think

    ReplyDelete
  126. Mitch, The GodfatherDecember 17, 2014 at 6:12 PM

    Mid-June through September for me. I barely can watch a full MLB game.

    ReplyDelete
  127. nothing is worse than the day when all the charities phone-a-thons are on the sports-talk-radio stations, cant remember what day that is.. its like 2 or 3 days

    ReplyDelete
  128. Wayyyyyyy too much thinking for WWE writers.

    ReplyDelete
  129. he did at the Florida WM? 24?

    ReplyDelete
  130. It annoys me when sports announcers act like they don't know anything about pop culture.
    "Well, I don't know too much about this Twitter thing, Bob, but ..."

    ReplyDelete
  131. Summer would be awful if you aren't into baseball and I know that isn't for everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  132. So Sony announced that they won't even bother releasing The Interview on VOD or DVD/Blu-Ray. Seriously, they just flushed over 50 million dollars down the toilet.

    ReplyDelete
  133. All Star Break in July. When all sports have a few days off.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Only $20 million more than WWE Studios

    ReplyDelete
  135. I think they will sell it to someone willing to release it or wait until this dies down

    ReplyDelete
  136. Ridiculous. May as well leak it themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Nah....they'll release it at some point down the road I'm sure, probably just direct to a stream service.


    That's hilarious though. Viva la revolucion

    ReplyDelete
  138. Short attention span if somebody thought it was too long. I wasn't talking about you. The post was only 4 graphs.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Did they honestly think they wouldn't offend anyone with the movie?

    ReplyDelete
  140. Let's pay tribute to the troops by giving them the upper deck nose bleeds.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Oh, hey buddy! Whatcha doin'?

    ReplyDelete
  142. I was actually looking forward to a change in scenery with the set for this show. Is this the first time they've done the troop show on the cookie cutter setup?

    ReplyDelete
  143. Those make sense though, as you're dealing with a teenager.


    It's crazy to think that her opening her mouth to the Queen is the reason that almost every single thing in the books happens.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I saw that North Korean debate. That was....something

    ReplyDelete
  145. But the weather is nice, not cold and miserable.

    ReplyDelete
  146. It cost $50 million to make?


    Losing 50 isn't too bad by a big studios' standards.

    ReplyDelete
  147. They played during lots of the early In Your House shows, particularly on the 'Free For All'.

    ReplyDelete
  148. That was probably the best Cena entrance, in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  149. bones wat do u think of the cards/braves heyward-miller trade.. where do u think the pirates fit this upcoming year in the nl central. im not really aware of many of their moves thus far. hope they give polanco another chance too

    ReplyDelete
  150. This. I'm not that into baseball that much anymore, so it's a really boring 2 months before NFL camps begin to spice things up.

    ReplyDelete
  151. So CNN is reporting that the North Koreans called for the Sony hack.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Did cost a shitton to actually go over to Iraq or where ever the fuck? It was actually still somewhat authentic when they did.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Britain's way ahead of you there. It's POST-cool to be dumb. It's now becoming ironically nostalgically cool to be dumb. But you guys are doing some great work there too.

    ReplyDelete
  154. You don't say.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Except this is a big studio that's trying to pass on a billion dollar deal with Marvel Studios because of hurt feelings.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Oh yeah, just wished they had more room to do their thing. The WWE always does get Cena's WM entrances right.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Weird that they'd immediately take credit for a successful fuck off to America like that.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Damn the immeasurable power of those globe-shaking titans! You leave Japan alone, North Korea! Haven't you ruined the world enough?!

    ReplyDelete
  159. Anyone who puts on a Cardinals uniform, magically becomes a competent player for whatever reason. Offense was Atlanta's problem last year, so I don't know what that solves.

    Pirates never do much in free agency. They traded for Cervelli and Bastardo while resigning Liriano and brought back Burnett. No reason why Polanco won't get another chance, I was a little surprised he struggled as much as he did.

    As odd as it sounds, I think the key to everything is Alvarez getting himself right again.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Oh, Tribute to the Troops is on....cable I guess?


    Well, anyone watching anything on the network I can jump in on?

    ReplyDelete
  161. Also don't forget that the most impressive counterfeiting of American currency anywhere in the world is in North Korea.


    For such brilliant geniuses, they're surprisingly unsuccessful overall. Or of course, it's "Elite Republican Armed Guards" all over again.

    ReplyDelete
  162. It probably did cost a bit. I assume WWE actually foot the bill on that, instead of having the talent pay for it.


    WWE actually did do a good and cool thing when they went over every year for like a decade.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Mitch, The GodfatherDecember 17, 2014 at 6:20 PM

    I seem to find that a lot of basketball experts (Bob Ryan, for one) have the opinion that Karl Malone is overrated. Why is this?

    ReplyDelete
  164. Dusts vs. the Usos CMXVII

    ReplyDelete
  165. I feel like we should invade purely for copyright purposes. I doubt they ever cleared that Top Gun footage with Paramount.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Haven't read his opinion, but I would imagine is the same excuse of didn't win a ring.

    ReplyDelete
  167. trolling for hits

    ReplyDelete
  168. It's on my bucket list to go there

    ReplyDelete
  169. Yeah, Dean Andrews claimed that the USA was just as bad as North Korea...he then threatened to hold a knife to a kid's throat.

    Disclaimer: I may have only been half paying attention to what I was reading.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Did they call for it because they can't do it themselves? I saw the map. It's very dark there.

    ReplyDelete
  171. They went to two straight NBA Finals with Greg Ostertag at center. How is Malone not the man?

    ReplyDelete
  172. IN THE WORLD?!?!?


    No fucking way Florida Georgia Line is one of the biggest bands in the world. Fucking WWE shills.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Mitch, The GodfatherDecember 17, 2014 at 6:22 PM

    I'll try to find something on it. I just heard him always say it on Around the Horn. He doesn't like Dwight Howard either.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Oh, you don't have to convince me. Malone is hands down a top fiver at his position.

    ReplyDelete
  175. I live in the world, and I'd never heard of them until they showed up at....was it summerslam?

    ReplyDelete
  176. The real question is "Would Meekin get this right?"

    My guess: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6S1IGzHdf8

    ReplyDelete
  177. I gave up when I saw something about FEMA camps

    ReplyDelete
  178. I know a few of my friends that are country music fans went to their concert once.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Yup, that was about where I started lol'ing

    ReplyDelete
  180. That didn't win a ring nonsense grinds the gears. Not making the playoffs is one thing (looking at you KG) winning a title is a different beast

  181. He's a bit of a dirty player, not as talented or good as Barkley or other top PFs, his stats are impressive due to extremely long career, generally an un-clutch player, and the Jazz were thought of making it to the Finals by default due to age and deterioration of the West in the late 90s, which was already the much weaker conference back then.

  182. We should invade if only because maybe there'll be a follow-up to Generation Kill. I loved that show.

  183. You might want to make it last on that particular list.


    I don't intend that to come across as a threat. Sorry.


    I'm a well-wisher. In that I mean you no specific harm.

  184. He carried them to two straight NBA Finals during the NBA's apex. How much more clutch do you need to be?

  186. He also used a church choir, right? Because, you know, White people LOVE Black church choirs.

    They put more on a emphasis on winning titles as a measure of evaluating greatness when it comes to the NBA and QB's in the NFL.

  188. He has a long and illustrious history of choking (or at least APPEARING to choke) during the playoffs. Advanced stats are slowly but surely helping his case, pointing out that he wasn't really THAT bad in the playoffs, he still managed to consistently shrink from the moment.

    I've always believed that if you take out Malone and put in Charles Barkley at a roughly equivalent point in his career (not year by year but you get what I'm going for here) in 97 and 98 the Utah Jazz beat the Bulls at least once and might get both of those.

    Also there's no reason the Jazz didn't win the title in 99, they had an intact team and were mostly in shape, he won the MVP and they still didn't win.

    If you have either the best or 2nd best team in the league 3 years in a row and don't get 1 title and are probably the reason for that, your historical legacy will take a hit.

  189. That destiny game looks epic and all, but it also seems to indicate that Bungie aren't very comfortable doing anything that isn't Halo.
