random thoughts for monday february 20th, 2012




1.  here come your monday funnies!!!!

i knew those bunnies were nothing but trouble!!!


2.  a legendary, ground breaking actor has a birthday today…SIDNEY POITIER is 85 today…..he is the first black person to ever win an academy award…he won in  1963 for the movie “LILLIES OF THE FIELD.”  of course, he is probably best known for starring in the movie “TO SIR WITH LOVE.”

here’s SIDNEY POITIER today at 85…including getting an award from PRESIDENT OBAMA….

3.  a hockey star from my childhood has a birthday today….i remember that when i was younger, the name PHIL ESPOSITO was heard everywhere…he was a star with the BOSTON BRUINS….

he was a crazy man on the ice….breaking several scoring records, and becoming one of the biggest names in hockey history…he played a total of 18 seasons in the NHL…

PHIL ESPOSITO turns 70 years old today!!!!  here he is today….

4.  funny girl and cutie pie SANDY DUNCAN turns 66 years old today…..she’s known mostly for “THE HOGAN FAMILY” on tv, and for bringing back “PETER PAN” on BROADWAY…i’m sure you remember her….

here she is with TOM BOSLEY…

and, SANDY DUNCAN was so popular, that she appeared in one of the “SCOOBY DOO MYSTERY MOVIES.”  or, as SCOOBY called her “RANDY RUNCAN.”

here’s SANDY DUNCAN today at 66……

5.  JEANNIE AND I went to see a movie yesterday, and i’m glad we did…we thought the movie “THIS MEANS WAR” had a pretty funny recipe for a movie, and we were right….two C.I.A. agents, who are best friends, fall for the same woman, REESE WITHERSPOON…..so, they try and keep each other from her, using the tactics they were taught…..pretty cool movie…lots of laughs…not an ACADEMY AWARD winner, but yet a good movie….

would i recommend it?  absolutely…..some funny lines, and a storyline that keeps you interested…that’s all you can ask for in some movies!!!

6.  speaking of that movie, i have a gripe from yesterday…i have NO PROBLEM if you want to bring your two year old to the movies….but when you let them constantly run thru the theater, scream out loud, and go row to row bothering people, then i have a problem…..this kid ran down the theater, climbed the stairs to go outside, and still didn’t get a budge out of his parents….unreal….

7.  experts say that medical breakthroughs could enable the latest generation to live to be 150 years old…wow….so, THAT’S why doctors think it’s okay for you to sit so doggone long in the waiting room!!!

8.  this past friday, CHINA’S vice president addressed a group of elementary school children in CALIFORNIA…he then shouted “WHY AREN’T YOU ALL AT WORK?”

9.  the CW is making a musical chairs-style game show for adults….the first episode will be the “BOBBY BROWN FUNERAL SEATING EDITION.” 

10.  NBC has ordered 13 episodes of a tv series about HANNIBAL LECTER…it will kind of be like “FEAR FACTOR”, but instead of watching someone eat lizards, you’ll watch them eat LEONARDS…

11.  JENNIFER ANISTON had her first full topless scene cut out of her new movie “WONDERLUST”, because she thought her new boyfriend JUSTIN THEROUX might be upset…..he’s probably more upset now that he’s the MOST HATED MAN IN AMERICA….

12.  WHITE HOUSE party crasher TAREQ SALAHI is suing his wife MICHAELE for $50 million dollars as part of her affair with JOURNEY lead guitarist NEAL SCHON….he pretty much guaranteed that she’ll show up in court…he just told her that she’s not invited…

13.  a man from CONNECTICUT served an eviction notice to his OWN MOTHER on her 98th birthday the other day…tacky…even more tacky was the card…”roses are red, violets are blue, get the hell out of the house or i’ll have to sue you.”

14.  JOKE OF THE DAY: (i think i’ll try this)

A minister told his congregation, “Next week I plan to preach about the sin of lying. To help you understand my sermon, I want you all to read Mark 17.”

The following Sunday, as he prepared to deliver his sermon, the minister asked for a show of hands. He wanted to know how many had read Mark 17. Every hand went up.

The minister smiled and said, “Mark has only sixteen chapters. I will now proceed with my sermon on the sin of lying.”
