Drum Roll Please

June 22, 2009 by admncc

The winner of Friday’s contest was Keg of Wisdom.  Congratulations!  They will receive a $50 American Express gift card and a t-shirt courtesy of The Constant Complainer.

I saw Kat and Jenny run a number of contests on their blogs and I’m glad I decided to try it.  It was a lot of fun and the comments were great.

So leave a comment, tell us what’s up, congratulate Keg of Wisdom, tell us how your weekend was, tell us about your Father’s Day, etc.  My wife and daughter bought me a basketball hoop – which I very much wanted.  Game on!

P.S.  I hate dumb TV commercials.  Sometimes I wonder how some of these commercials actually get approved.  I guess I’m glad they aren’t asking my opinion on these beforehand.  Anyway, here is a recent 15 -second commercial I saw.  I hate “Just for Men” commercials (for grey hair).  The only one worse than this one is the job interview one – where the daughter hands her dad the “box” before his job interview (I couldn’t find that one online).

P.S.S.  Does Perez Hilton just need some attention or what?  You can view the MTV story here.

    I love it. Perez is beat up and bleeding, but tweets instead of calling the police.

  2. Kat says:

    Congrats to Keg of Wisdom!

    My weekend was kinda boring, but the teens wished me a happy father’s day cuz I’m the mom and the dad they said…LoL

  3. Mike says:

    Good job KOW, Im glad one of the friends in my blogroll won

  4. Marissa says:

    I’m so happy for the Keg (which was also my mantra in my 20’s). You’re right about that stupid commercial. I also groan at erectile dysfunction commercials.

    For all the great dads out there, thanks for being awesome. For all the crappy dads, stop sucking and try again to deserve the honor next year!

    I’ve seen that commercial. There is also one with football player Emmitt Smith.

    Congratulations Keg Of Wisdom.

    Happy Belated Father’s Day C.C. Hope it was wonderful.

    Do I need to start going by MikeN now? I did not post the previous comment by “Mike”.

    Anyway, I wanted to comment on the commercial complaint. For years now I’ve wanted to form the CAP, or Commercial Approval Panel. This would of course be a sub-division of the FCC that controls what commercials are good enough for tv. No longer would we have to deal with commercials that are just plain stupid, boring, and irrelevant. The worst commercials are the ones that you cannot even decipher what product is being advertised. We would have certain guidelines that would require your commercial to be clever, informative, and worth the millions of dollars you spend on it. The CAP can either approve or reject your commercial, allowing a two week deadline for resubmissions.

    And congratulations Keg of Wisdom

  7. Thanks for the support!

  8. Congrats, Keg.

    Our weekend was also uneventful. Our fathers have passed away and we don’t have kids so we just did the normal hang-out, work in the yard, visit family, and run errands.

    As for commercials, feminine product commercials are disgusting and the Viagra commercials are beyond silly.

    Leave it to TMZ to get the scoop – as always, they are on top of it. They have video footage of the Perez Hilton vs. Will.I.Am argument. It’s quick, but the audio is clear. The one thing that stands out at me – Perez appears to be the one instigating it. Wow, there’s a shock…

    Congrats Keg. I like your blog.

    I hate most commercials. Gotta love TiVo.

    And I really hate Perez. What a little crybaby.

  11. Congrats Keg! 🙂

    As for Perez. I was at work bored this morning and decided to find out what happened. I listedn to Perez’s 11 minute and 42 second “statement” and I laughed at a lot of parts.

    1. Yes, violence is NEVER the answer (sounds strange coming from me who wants to high five people in the face with an anvil…daily. But I WANT to. I never do it!

    2. I’m sorry but you freaking instgated it. You are calling the guy “gay” and “fucking faggot”. Not only are you “insulting” the guy but you are taking two giant steps for gay and lesbian rights and freedoms everywhere by being gay and calling people gay as an insult…. Oh wait.. its that like black people calling each other nigger and being cool but if a white person says it, its racist?

    3. In his statement he admits that it wasn’t Will.i.Am but rather a member of their management. Then why tweet that Will.i.Am assulted you?

    4. C’mon TWITTER? You tweeted your assult instead of calling the cops? If I would have called the cops and they told me that they would TRY to get around to it (like his statement video says happened), I would have hung up and called back a few thousand times until they freaking took me seriously.

    4. My nephew’s girlfriend is a whore. Sorry…I thought I’d throw that in since I’m in the middle of a rant anyway!

  12. This could be a stupid question, but how the hell did Perez Hilton get famous? Is he related to someone famous?

  13. sigh. perez hilton. how i hate thee, let me count the ways.

    what is he even famous for? posting pictures of wasted celebrities and then making a dumb comment about it?! good job.

  14. Chris says:

    Haha. Good old Perez. Douche. Does anyone like this person??
    Oh – and excellent work Keg!

  15. The Constant Complainer says:

    This was taken from IMDB.com today:

    “Perez Hilton has filed a lawsuit against the Black Eyed Peas’ manager accused of assault.

    The celebrity blogger, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, has sued Liborio “Polo” Molina for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress, according to the Associated Press. Hilton’s suit aims to protect his right to free speech and claims that Molina attacked him…”

    I’m suprised Perez wasn’t twittering instead of suing.

  16. i agree about commercials, hate them. but i will say, when i watch old tv shows with old commercials it does bring back memories. weird how that works.

  17. NeoConDon says:

    Perez Hilton is the biggest bigot I’ve ever seen. I’m not surprised that someone beat him up.
