The Bad Review Revue

Little Man: "One joke short of being a one-joke film." -- Randy Cordova, ARIZONA REPUBLIC Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest: ""The fool thing just keeps going and going ... and going.

Nor Do I Pee Maple Syrup

I've never considered myself to be good at improv, and an incident this morning did nothing to change that opinion. I was preparing The Squirrelly's breakfast this morning, and I decided to give him a choice of entree. "Do you want oatmeal or a waffle with jam?" I asked.

Crude and Oil

Best Ann Coulter interview ever. I've recently started listening to the Adam Corolla show in the morning. I couldn't stand The Man Show or Loveline, but Corolla is well suited to freeform, topic-less rambling and raving. He seems like he might be jerk, but he's a highly-intelligent jerk with a trigger-quick wit and a wizard with the ad-lib analogy. He
