KFC- Double Down Experiment

I tried a bite of the infamous KFC Double Down sandwich. The DD is two pieces of fried chicken pressed together. In the middle is a whole bunch of cheese and bacon. I hope you enjoy the pain I experience in the video.

This sandwich reminded me of the "They're Made Out of Meat" comedy video.

Lender Conversation

So, I live in a part of town that always gets telemarketing calls. I decided some time ago to start recording these - not to get into any arguments but just try to get some of the people off script. Usually, I'm successful. Many of these guys are so desperate to talk to a real person and not talk about what ever crappy product their told to push. Here is one conversation I had about a month ago - I toned out the names to try to protect her identity.

Telemarketing Conversation #1

Gieco Lizard Fired - It's that easy.

As reported in the Huffington Post today Lance Baxter, the voice of the Gieco Lizard was fired for calling Tea Baggers mentally retarded. I'm going to talk more about this in my podcast, but my initial reaction was - Doesn't everyone know that most of the Tea Party are mentally retarded. As I suspected most of the Tea Party organizations are full of sissies and cowards. They start crying, "Oh the Gieco Lizard called us retarded - I think I just soiled myself"

Look I understand that it's in bad taste to call a group of retarded people, retarded and it is appropriate for Baxter to apologize for his rude and inappropriate remarks, but to fire him is just wrong and an extreme overreaction by Gieco.

Does Gieco understand that most of its customers are in their 20's and 30's? And that target market ain't in the Tea Party. Furthermore, the Liberal blogs are chalked full of comments saying they're either dumping Gieco or never purchasing Gieco. How many customers does Gieco think they're going to get from the old, grumpy, white Tea Baggers?

Is Gieco going to do the commercials with a replacement VO? That will just be sad and awkward.

Gieco logo used as "fair use". Gieco in no way supports or endorses this blog.

Car Signs

As I'm driving down the road I am sometimes amazed at the crazy stuff people on their cars. Here are three examples I captured with my cell phone:

Every Iranian, excuse me Persian I've ever known is so damn proud of being Persian. Persians are more proud of their culture than anyone. To them, if it ain't Persian it ain't worth crap.

Here is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. It's not enough for this Persian guy to have a convertible Porsche. Oh no, not for this Persian. He must also put a huge picture of the Persian state steal on the side of his car. God love em. There is nothing like em in the world. The emblem links to a website - The guy who owns the car is Majid Majidian.

This one is a little hard to see, but on the back of this car in big letters is the title of his company. Dr. Doo (business must be closed - web address is dead) .. profession dog crap picker upper. Now I have no problem with a guy making a living and certainly there's a need for a good doo cleaning service. What I found funny is that just below this giant Dr. Doo, his license plate reads UKLIFE .. which I guess means something about the University of Kansas .. To me it just meant, "UK the Home of Dr. Doo." I mean no offense. I'm sure this guy is a hard worker and certainly a fan of UK. And no offense to the University of Kansas - although their basketball team could use some help.

The extent a retarded Tea Bagger will go to show his complete lack of class always amazes me. Here we have a Hummer, of all things, with the phrase, "Take Back America" and below it "Beelzebub: Obama". I guess he means Beelzebub the demon. Is he using Beelzebub as some kind of verb? But then why the colon? .. Is Beelzebub addressing Obama in a kind of letter? Is Beelzebub like a club and Obama is a member? Is he asking a question like Beelzebub? and hoping Obama will answer it?

The "Dump Reid" is typical of transient Californians who move here to escape the taxes. We Nevadans call em "Stiffs", because they come here with a suit and a dollar and neither gets changed.
