random thoughts for friday february 4th, 2011





1.  well, my first night of adjusting my butt to my couch went well.  as you may know, my wife is gone until tuesday, which means, lots of couch time…HOPEFULLY…last night, i sat down and watched a great movie from the 80’s, “BEVERLY HILLS COP II.”  good stuff…..EDDIE MURPHY was super funny back then…other than all the cursing….anyway, today we’re going to salute the cast of the show and see what they look like today…

first of all, EDDIE MURPHY….here he is from the movie…

and here he is today….my favorite role for EDDIE MURPHY recently, is the voice of “DONKEY” on “SHREK.”

actors JUDGE REINHOLD and JOHN ASHTON played EDDIE’S counterparts in the movie….ASHTON as a hard nosed cop, and REINHOLD as the “child like” cop wannabee…..here they are in the movie with EDDIE.

and here are JOHN ASHTON and JUDGE REINHOLD today…i do think that JUDGE had some work done….

and, actor RONNY COX starred in the movie as the police captain….i’ve always like RONNY COX…do you remember the show that he was on that lasted one year back in the 70’s?  it was called “APPLE’S WAY.”  it was created by EARL HAMNER of “THE WALTON’S” fame, and i remember that the house had a WATERWHEEL on it….that’s about all i remember…anyway, here’s RONNY COX from a few years back…

and here is RONNY COX today….an accomplished musician along with being a great actor…

2.  my son MITCHELL set up “NETFLIX” on his computer the other day…don’t know EXACTLY what that means, but he says that i can just order and watch movies from it…..IS HE TRYING TO MOLD MY BUTT TO THE COUCH FOR EVERY WAKING MINUTE THIS WEEKEND?  so, i’ll guess i’ll try NETFLIX out….we’ll see if this “old guy’ can handle it…

3.  SUPER BOWL:  okay, i’m sure you’ve been dying to hear my prediction….okay, maybe you haven’t..but you’re going to get it….here’s my SUPER BOWL PREDICTION….



i’m rooting for GREEN BAY because of how nice the fans and the town were when we went there for a REDSKINS game a few years back…..GREEN BAY people were FANTASTIC…if i quit cheering for WASHINGTON, (which i will never do), i probably would become a PACKERS fan….OKAY, NO I WOULDN’T….I WOULD BECOME A VIKINGS FAN, BEING THEY ARE MY SECOND FAVORITE TEAM…

but for this weekend only:  “GO PACK”…..

4.  2.3 MILLION FEET OF PIZZA HUT PIZZA WILL BE EATEN ON SUNDAY……1.1 million just in my own house…..

4.  what a horrible scenario near interstate 29 yesterday….officials said that over 150 vehicles were stranded between SISSETON AND SUMMIT because of whiteout blizzard conditions….i heard one reporter call it “THE BURMUDA TRIANGLE OF SOUTH DAKOTA.”  one ironic twist?  a roberts county emergency management official was stranded out there…coming home from a meeting ABOUT FLOODS…..wow…..

5.  it was WONDERFUL to see some roads turning to slush yesterday because of sunshine and warmer temps…of course, we can’t keep the streak going, though…colder, single digit highs are expected next week again…

6.  according to experts, the sun will run out of energy and burn out in about five billion years…which is just a few years longer than when CHARLIE SHEEN finally burns out…..

7.  did you hear about this?  an ITALIAN art historian thinks that the reason “MONA LISA” is so unusual looking is that LEONARDO DA VINCI gave her the face of his male gay lover…..wow….so, what do we start calling it? “MONA LARRY?”

8.  LARRY HAGMAN will appear in a remake of the tv show “DALLAS’, in which he will reprise his role of J.R. EWING…i’m not saying that HAGMAN’S getting a lot older, but the plot centers around the question, “WHO LOST J.R.?”

9.  BOY GEORGE plans to reunite for a tour in 2012 with the original members of THE CULTURE CLUB…that is, if they can all get time off from ARBY’S…..

10.  TMZ reports that LINDSAY LOHAN may have been tipped off about a search warrant, returning an allegedly stolen necklace before her house was raided…..poor lindsay….all she wanted was one piece of jewelry that doesn’t beep when it’s near alcohol….


 A tough looking biker was riding his Harley when he sees a girl about to jump off a bridge so he stops. “What are you doing?” he asks.
    “I’m going to commit suicide,” she says.
    While he did not want to appear insensitive, he didn’t want to miss an opportunity he asked
    “Well, before you jump, why don’t you give me a kiss?”
    So, she does.
    After she’s finished, the biker says, “Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had. That’s a real talent you are wasting. You could be famous! Why are you committing suicide?”
    “My parents don’t like me dressing up like a girl.”
