Watched this on HBO this week. Hy-freaking-sterical. My favorite part was in this segment, from about the 5:00 mark on:

It doesn't look too bad at first, but the slo-mo replay from this touchdown celebration in the Canadian Football League shows where it all starts to go wrong. And it cracks me up when the commentator quips that he hates when 'that' happens -- it's so common, right?

Keep in mind that most football players don't actually wear their cups. So it must have really hurt.

But also great is the fact that the opposing player falls on top of the guy's head.

Buscemi bid out for Official Cup Checker for the St. Louis Rams. He only has to pay $65 a week!

No, W.

As for the cup thing, I read it in a tell-all book about the NFL. Most of those guys don't see the need in wearing cups.

Twilight would have been so much better had they, you know, actually been bloodthirsty vampires.

Here's one I got in my e-mail:


A fancy big city lawyer is driving through Texas. He comes to a four-way stop, but instead of stopping, just slows down long enough to look both ways, then he plows through the intersection.

A few seconds later, he sees a highway patrolman flashing his lights in his rear-view. After pulling over, he politely asks, "What's the problem, officer?"

The officer replies, "That was a four-way stop, sir. You didn't stop, you only slowed down."

Thinking that a hotshot attorney like himself can easily outwit a bumpkin Texas highway patrolman, he says, "Officer, I'll make a deal with you. If you can show me the legal difference between stopping and slowing down, I'll give you my license and registration, and you can give me a ticket. If you can't, you let me go without a ticket."

The patrolman thinks for a moment, and then says, "Agreed. Would you please step out of the car, sir?"

The lawyer exits his car. Almost immediately, the patrolman whips out his nightstick and whacks him right in the gut. The lawyer falls to the ground in a heap, and just for good measure, the cop hits him several more times in the back and the legs.

Then, the cop lowers his stick, leans over the lawyer, and says, "Now, sir, do you want me to stop, or just slow down?"



God bless Texas!

How would you pronounce this child's name?

"Le-a"

Leah?? NO
Lee - A?? NOPE
Lay - a?? NO
Lei?? Guess Again.

This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA.. Her mother is
irate because everyone is getting her name wrong. It's pronounced "Ledasha".
When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she
said, "the dash don't be silent."

SO, if you see something come across your desk like this please remember
to pronounce the dash.

If they axe you why, tell them the dash don't be silent.

True story:

When my father-in-law was younger (20's-30's) he was in the leather goods business. He set up at malls during the holidays and would sell purses, personalized belts, etc. One day a couple came up and said, "Can you make a belt up for our daughter?"

He said, "Sure, it'll take a few minutes. What's the name?"

"Jerry"

"Ok, is that with a 'G' or a 'J'?"

"Neither."

"Ok, how do you spell it?"

"K-X-R-Y-Z."

"Kxryz...?"

"Yeah, we didn't want her to be like anyone else, you know, and individual."

So there's a 40 year-old lady out there named 'Jerri' but spelled Kxryz.

Check list of what to do when raiding a drug dealer's house:

1. Make sure no one is there.
2. Catalog illegal items.
3. Play frame after frame of Wii Bowling.

And besides the songs, it was pretty fucking bad. That's by far the best part of it...although i liked the troll doll spokespeople bit of his stand-up, even if it was just an excuse for him to do impressions.

I remember reading about this album. The critics thoroughly trashed it and it flopped.

I get the idea that it was Fallon's idea to outdo Adam Sandler (who released some successful albums in the 1990's) but it obviously didn't work.
