Stupid, Stupid, Stupid

I guess congratulations are in order to the NY Yankees for winning the World Series last night–their 27th victory. I still don’t like them and never will. I’m a zombie after last night’s game, though, having watched, with hope beyond hope that the Phillies would have pulled it out and brought about game 7. At least now I can get some decent sleep again.

March 7, 2010 is the 82nd Academy Awards and there ‘s a slight change in the line-up. Not only will the event be hosted by both Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, which has caused quite a stir in Augusta, Maine. A recent vote by outraged Mainers (Mainians? Maniacs?) has banned the broadcasting of this year’s awards gala with a same-sex duo because it would destroy the sanctity of the of Oscar hosting. Maybe it’s just the choice of  less than compelling co-hosts they chose that has the residents in a dither, but it prompted Carol Foyler, a key activist in that state to ask, “If Baldwin and Martin are allowed to do this, who will host the Oscars next year–a man and a horse?”  But I wonder if they also ban the Oprah Winfrey show when she has on a female guest? And chances are they won’t be voting in favor of gay marriage up there in Augusta, Maine anytime soon.

Another change coming this year is a throwback to the early, early days of the ceremony with 10 films, rather than the usual 5 in the Best Motion Picture category. 1943 was the last year, in fact, when there were 10 nominees. And in both 1934 and ‘35, there were 12. Are there even ten decent movies made nowadays worthy of nomination? Why not just give them all an award, photograph Paris Hilton six ways to Sunday and call it a night?

Kellogg Cocoa Krispies is pulling the “Now Helps Support Your Child’s IMMUNITY” banner off their boxes of cereal. It was cited that the cereal company was just cashing in on parents’ fear of the swine flu (or should I say H1N1 so no swine are offended?) and the claim was never proven. Although, I would imagine eating a balanced breakfast would help support your child’s immunity. I guess those critics saw the label as a cure all. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

This is another video by Ricardo Autobahn who put out the one I posted yesterday. It’s just cute and funny.

    Too bad the Yankees won. Some people really are stupid; don’t they have something more important to occupy their time with? Gotta love animals!
