The ice cream store in my hometown in Madison, Ind., is offering a flavor called “Kentucky delight.” I told the girl behind the counter “I didn’t know they made possum-flavored ice cream.” "Do you want live or dead?" she asked.
… While watching Direct TV this week, I noticed a number of similarly named stations. They were “Brazil Butt Lift”, “Brazilian Butt”, “Best Butt Ever” and “John Carter.” “What does ‘John Carter’ have to do with the other stations?” a friend asked. “Because the guy who thought that movie was a good idea was a real butt head.” … I got a call from Alex Trebeck “Wanted you to be on jeopardy?” No he wanted to sell me some insurance to help bury me.” … I was going to propose a new realty show “Yard Sale Junkies” but I realize it would probably get made so I’m keeping it quiet. Apparently there’s a new shown on the horizon called “Too Stupid to Live” but that seems rather risky. A sure hit is the “Things I Don’t Want to Know about the Kardashians.” The difficulty would be getting the length down to something that TV can handle. …. The local cable company just went digital and on top of HDTV now there is a wide range of shows that I don’t want to watch 24 hours a day and endless reruns of ones that I have already seen.
