Recognize Anybody In This Old Commercial?

Oh, you don’t?  I thought she was… and he was… oh, never mind.

#BeenThereDoneThatAlready, Subway!

Well that didn’t take long.

The so-called-artists of Subway apparently don’t exist in their advertising department.

Take a look at their latest commercial:

Why am I up in #arms, you ask?  Jimmy Fallon (and Justin Timberlake) already took a crack at this last month:

But what should I expect from a place that makes sandwiches?

Hibbidy-Wah?! Amazon Banana Slicer Amazingness!

Initially, I was going to write about this bath salts warning video, but upon finding out about this, I couldn’t resist…

THE HUTZLER 571 BANANA SLICER

This is the original picture. Wait for the "original pictures."

This is the original picture. Wait for the “original pictures.”

Apparently, many people have taken great joy in usurping this product’s listing on Amazon.  You can check it all out here, but these are some highlights:

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Mine didn’t come with instructions, so I’m returning it. Also, call me when they make one that gives you smaller slices. -Pen Name

No more winning for you, Mr. Banana! For decades I have been trying to come up with an ideal way to slice a banana. “Use a knife!” they say. Well…my parole officer won’t allow me to be around knives. “Shoot it with a gun!” Background check…HELLO! I had to resort to carefully attempt to slice those bananas with my bare hands. 99.9% of the time, I would get so frustrated that I just ended up squishing the fruit in my hands and throwing it against the wall in anger. Then, after a fit of banana-induced rage, my parole officer introduced me to this kitchen marvel and my life was changed. No longer consumed by seething anger and animosity towards thick-skinned yellow fruit, I was able to concentrate on my love of theatre and am writing a musical play about two lovers from rival gangs that just try to make it in the world. I think I’ll call it South Side Story. Banana slicer…thanks to you, I see greatness on the horizon. -SW3K

I’m SO glad Hutzler came out with a plastic, dishwasher-safe version with this model (571). Finally! A banana slicer that’s TSA approved for airline travel in your carry-on luggage. With baggage-check fees being so high, I try to avoid checking bags whenever possible, but I just couldn’t travel without my (360-series) stainless steel banana slicer. But now, problem solved!!!! Travel with the plastic 571 version and no checked-baggage fees! No more having to use coffee stirrers from the hotel coffee service to slice my breakfast banana! You can even use it in-flight if you remember to buy a banana from Starbucks before you board. This will be perfect for our trip to Ecuador this summer!!!! Would have gotten 5 stars if it came with a carrying case to keep it clean. -Chryssa Jones

Waiting for 671 to buy. Need one of these *very badly* but anxious that as soon as I buy one… the next model will be out, what with all the new features and such. Don’t know if it is worth the wait, or if I will be disappointed with my 571 when all my friends have the 671? any thoughts? -rrrabbitt “rrrabbitt”

Worth 1002 Words… It’s Like Coning, But You’re Invisible And Don’t Order Soft Serve

I’ve decided that I’m not finding (or looking) for funny pictures anymore, which used to constitute Worth 1002 Words.  If I find one that works, I’ll post it.  But you know what else is Worth 1002 Words?  Some videos, like this one:

CAPTION: Value Men-Boo!

Musical Musings… Are We Sure This Wasn’t What The Mayans Warned Us About?

This video will speak for itself, but in case you can’t wait, let me prepare you:

Have you ever wanted to see children deal candy like it was drugs?
Have you ever wanted to see children drink ice tea out of paper bags like it was alcohol?
Have you ever wanted to see the guy that made Rebecca Black’s Friday video and song again?

You’ve been warned:

The Sh– To Just Sh–ty… The Higher The Number – The Lamer The Song

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life it’s this: lists are easy.  So today – a list!  Butt it’s a special kind of list.  Today I shall rank songs according to the number they chose to focus on.  I say, the higher the number – the lamer the song.  For our first turtle head poking out:

THE SHIT

  • The Proclaimers’ I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)

This song isn’t the worst on the list, so that makes it best, or The Shit, by comparison.  Think of this song as the elusive “No-Wiper” we hope for after our morning coffees and Mountain Dews.

THE TURD EYE BLIND

  • Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles

Ms. Carleton supposedly dated the lead singer of Third Eye Blind, but not before releasing this turd.  Lucky for The Proclaimers, it took twice the walking distance to turn Stephan Jenkins on.

THE BROWN NOTE

  • 525,600 Minutes from Rent

I enjoy the South Park reference much more than my original ranking title – THE MUSICAL FRUIT.  I was of course making a pun out beans and Rent being a musical!  Nothing else!

THE JAR OF FARTS

  • Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years

I ranked time frames above distance because 1000 years is a hell of a lot more to deal with than 1000 miles!  Fart!

JUST SHITTY

  • Jason Mraz’s 93 Million Miles

Ah yes, the inspiration for this list.  Singing about the sun is so laaaaame.  Unless you’re The Beatles.  Then it’s okay.  So stick this one where the, um, sun don’t shine!

THE DOOKIE ANOMOLY

  • Green Day’s 2000 Light Years Away

This song kinds of falls into the camp of how some geniuses are such geniuses they tip over the edge and become stupid (is that a thing?)… Well, this distance is so far that the lameness resets to zero.

(SIDENOTE: Okay, the higher number/lameness factor only works when song titles involve measurements of time and distance.  Otherwise,

Nena’s 99 Luftballons and

U2’s One would prove the converse.  Simply put – all songs with numbers suck.  Except 2000 Light Years Away, ‘natch.)

Hibbidy-Wah?! How Much Bacteria Is In Us?!

Want to be grossed out?  Guess how much bacteria exists in the average human body?

The human body carries more than 100 trillion bacteria – up to five pounds of the tiny single-celled organisms.

Together, all of the bacteria in the body would be the size of a large liver, and in many ways, scientists say, the microbiome behaves as another organ in the human body.
(via)

So… the amount of bacteria in EACH OF OUR BODIES roughly equals this:

Too abstract?

Too abstract?

How about this?

Too tasty?

Too tasty?

Perchance this?

Too tempting?

Maybe this will bring it home:

Too obsolete?
