Baby Come Back




What's going on?  My feather duster keeps sneaking back into the house saying it wants me back.

I used to think that was one of the stupidest commercials known to man and cleaning products.  But you know, it's grown on me.  It's one of those things that gets funnier every time I see it.

Speaking of stupid things, now Brangelina appear to be on the brink of nevermore...quoth the raven.  Yep, their 5 year, 33 kid relationship appears to be coming to an end.  Gossip sites say they've already been to the lawyer to split up their joint $300 million fortune.




But wait, another site says it's hogwash. Now there's a word that show's my age.  They're not splitting up it says.  A third site says "maybe".

And what's up with that term Brangelina.  These people have names.  Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.  Why didn't they call them Angerad or Pittlie or, geez I don't know Brad and Angelina.

It's like they're a corporation or something.  Brangelina Inc.

They're rich enough to be one.  And now it seems they've come to a parting of the ways.  What a couple of assets.  Assets...not asshats.

So what do you think set it off?   Did Angelina want to adopt more kids?  Did Brad refuse to shave that silly goaty-looking goatee off?  Woah!  Talk about your feather dusters.

Who knows.

Does anyone really care?

If you ask me, it's only a matter of time before one is telling the other those three little words...

If you ask me, and I guess you have, Angelia got more of an I.D. than Brad in their brand. Wonder if this will continue to play out in their settlement?

Me-Me: Oh, I'll bet yes, if she gets the majority of the time with the kids. Brad will get the majority of time with George Clooney.

Say it isn't so! The fantabulous couple of all time can't be splitting up!

33 doesn't divide evenly. Whatever will they do?

And I like Pittlie. They should've gone with that one. They might still be together.

heh heh

If ever my mop resembled Angelina Jolie, I would have only two thoughts on the matter. One, the drugs have kicked in and two, "baby come back."

Ah, there's kids in the mix, so not making easy jokes, but you think these showbiz types would learn to wait before rushing headlong into having kids, marrying, etc. (Brangelina isn't (aren't?) married, are they?). But no. Can't say I thought this one would last forever...
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: I lied; it's 6: 3 adopted and 3 together. I think the beard's to blame...for the break-up, not the kids.
nonamedufus said…
Don: I gotta get me some of those drugs. What are they? Uh, not that my wife looks like a mop, mind you, far from it. She just doesn't use one.
nonamedufus said…
Kablooey: Nope, they aren't married. But they're gonna split $366m. At that rate they'll each have more than I'll ever hope to make. How about you?

That swiffer commercial makes me crazy! Both the commercial and Brad's goatee have got to go!
All this joint-name stuff (Brangelina, Bennifer) is ridiculous. Just be glad Dick York didn't marry Hedda Hopper.

CL: Couldn't agree more. That song's been in my head for days now! And that beard looks like a feather duster.
nonamedufus said…
Mr. K: Yeah, Hopyork'a a real clunker. Oh...you mean...Dickhead! That's perfect!!! lol

wow, I was wonderin about them two .... I like them and I think they should get out of the limelight and say goodbye to their acting careers and get a real job ....like working on their family. I'd hate to see them two split and hear all the crap from the media . I hate bull shit .
nonamedufus said…
Jackie: Thanks for your comment. Weird stuff, eh? The latest story sees Brad and Jennifer back together. Sheesh, how can people believe this stuff.
Jackie said…
Hi, we can't believe it cause in the world real people aren't actors . Most people don't know what it is to be a movie star , at least I don't .

Jackie: But people spend money on those silly magazines. They just can't seem to get enough of the National Enquirer, etc. Sad.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

This week's Tw…
