If anyone here can make logical sense of MGP's last 3-4 years, please inform me...

Seriously...I expected him to decline, just not to fall off of a humongous cliff, then revel in the crash...only to dive like CR7 at OT after a few nice showings...

Does anyone have any rumors I haven't heard that might make sense of his career? Yikes...

While I don't have an answer for that, I do have some big, yet unconfirmed, news. Spectator will fill you in tomorrow on some pretty big news in TV land.

I actually like those kits .... granted I own a shirts which is covered entirely in screaming zombie faces, so what the fuck do I know.


I was just reading for my Communications Law class (first time all semester, woo) and I came across something called the 'Berlusconi Effect.' Basically about how he used his media presence to take over a country, but of course I know him as the greasy cocksucker who runs those cheating fucks AC Milan. I plan on bringing this up in class tomorrow, possibly without calling him greasy.

Spectator said...

Might as well disclose that ONTD has the big scoop! We are starting to realize that all the best news comes via the twit. More to come tomorrow.

Speaking of the Berlusconi Effect, my favorite thing about Italy is that sitting politicians have total immunity from criminal prosecution. Kind of explains why he ran for Prime Minister again.

You would ruin a surprise party for your mom. Five minutes? That's all you could hold out? (That's what she said)

I knew Berlusconi more from the PoliSci side of things before anything else. You could probably do a cross-studies dissertation on him for a pretty kickass doctorate. It would be better than the pansy Maths one that a UFer has.

Wow great idea. As I am a complete failure in the growing up area of life, I think I'm heading back for more school after I graduate and I'm looking at a Masters in International Affairs, I could weasel that in as a thesis topic pretty easily.

It's amazing how much MGP looks like a muppet in that close-up after the dive

Your Communications Law class sounds way more interesting than mine. All we talk about is celebrities bitching about their likeness rights.

I guess MGP could sue Jim Henson.

Mike Georger said...

Well it appears I read the wrong shit because we're talking about the AT&T breakup. Serves me right for reading.

The thing about the doves in Seattle is pretty freaking funny.
