What Should I Talk About?

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, August 28, 2006

Welcome To THE COUCH...Sit on Down and Get Comfy...

Welcome to Monday....

So, here I sit without a clue as to what today's report from THE COUCH should be about...

Should I talk about the fact that industry experts predict the blogsite fark.com may make it's owner Drew Curtis a possible million dollars because of the ad revenue his site is generating and at his site each story link has a little tease and a category type listing, such as Unlikely, Obvious, Strange, Cool etc. and it seems lots of folks go to fark.com for their news and to post inane comments at fark.com about the stories they have just read on other sites they were led to by fark.com and that basically, fark.com is a bunch of links and that could make Mr. Curtis a very rich man...?
Not sure I want to talk about that since it might make me jealous...

So, what else should I talk about...

Should I talk about the fact that this past Tuesday John Jordan "Buck" O'Neil, 94 years young, a former Negro League baseball player went to the plate for an at bat for the Kansas City T-Bones Minor league team and he did a little arguing with the ump over a strike call and eventually walked and he is now the oldest person ever to take an at bat in a professional baseball game...?
Well, if I talk about that my friends in Canada will make snide remarks aBOOT how hockey is better then baseball...

So, what else should I talk about...

Should I talk about the fact the Emmy Awards were last evening and that one of the supporting actresses nominated had exactly 15 seconds of screen time in her show and they nominated her for an award and how I would think that would make the other nominees pretty ticked off and the women who did not get nominated even more ticked off since they lost out to someone with 15 seconds of screen time...?
Well, I could talk about that, but for the life of me I can't remember the actresses name, so it would be silly to talk about that...

So, what else should I talk about...

Should I talk about the fact that some software guy named Frank Britt has put his home up for sale in Corona, CA. and the home sits on a 30,000 square foot lot (and takes up most of the lot), and has it's own private beach and is selling for the mere price of $75-million?
If I mention this one I could break out in tears that people have that kind of money and others can't afford a meal....

So, what else should I talk about...

Should I talk about the fact that we have some very clever people in our little Soul Patrol group who have been writing stories about Taylor Hicks and his exploits with cows and blonde headed women and psychics...?
Well, if I do that, then I lose those who have no idea who Taylor Hicks is, or couldn't care less about him or cows or psychics...

So, what else should I talk about...

Should I talk about the fact that I found out this weekend some of this illustrious group have never ever HEARD of the movie Animal House, no less seen one of the all time greatest comedies ever filmed...?
Well, they are now on DOUBLE SECRET PROBATION and that should be penalty enough...

Should I talk about the fact that I just spent the last half hour trying to figure out what I should talk about this morning...?
Well, if I do that then you will all realize you just read a bunch of hooey and start throwing pastries at me... OH NO another reference to the Soul Patrol.. How did I get there?

Well...What about it folks... Was that worth Coca-Cola or McDonalds putting an ad on my site and letting me earn some big bucks?

Thanks for sitting on THE COUCH, hope you enjoyed your stay.

Remember .. Nets For Malaria - UNFoundation.org/malaria - find the big SI's Nothing But Net logo ... Or call 202.887.9040. Every cent goes to buying nets to place over the beds of children in Africa to stomp out Malaria. PLEASE HELP.

Keep that spark of insanity kids...It helps keep you an individual.

  2. Would you not prefer Pepsi?

    How can someone not have seen Animal House and memorized each line?!?!?!?!


    Oh-- and the several mentions of fark.com ought to get ya a search or two. LOL

  3. Dixiechick Says:
  4. You have got to be kidding that there are actually people out there that have NEVER HEARD of the movie Animal House, no less seen one of the all time greatest comedies ever filmed...?

    By the way, here's your Cinnamon Roll and Blueberry Muffin! :-)

  5. Anonymous Says:
  6. OK, since I can't think of a thing to say either, but want you to know I read your blog even when you have basically nothing to say, I'll respond to the question. Sure, why not? If Pepsi can hold MJ up as an example for America's youth to emulate, why the hell not advertise on Bond's blog? It's a whole lot more wholesome and family oriented ... There's a whole other subject hiding inside that response, btw, but it's probably best left alone, as I understand there are people who believe in that creature's innocence, regardless of any evidence to the contrary. Have a nice day.

  7. Dana Says:
  8. :ahem: Bond, you could mention that Taylor Hicks has only until Feburary 14, 2007 to call me. That would be national or even international news.



  9. Bond Says:
  10. TURN: Yes I would prefer Pepsi.. Just amazing about Animal House... but I will let it rest! You figured me out.. if i mention these sites enough they will find me and make me a rich man bwahahahahahahahah

    DIXIE: YUMMY...grabs roll and muffin and devours them...

    COCO: OK... um... what? LOLOLOLOL

  11. Coco Says:
  12. *singing*
    "you deserve a break today ...
    so get up and get away ...
    to McDonalds" (the original music to this was composed by Barry Manilow, btw ...)

    Does this count as advertising, Bond?

  13. Coco Says:
  14. *singing*
    I'd like to build the world a home
    and furnish it with love.
    Grow apple trees and honey bees
    and snow white turtle doves.
    I'd like to teach the world to sing
    in perfect harmony
    I'd like to hold it in my arms
    and keep it company ..."

    there's your other endorsement, hon.
