Au revoir (hasta Sunday, when I return with a ticket stub from Mayweather/Maidana and a bunch of future World Cup bets).

Let’s Try Out A Hangover ‘Remedy’ That Was Sent For Reviewing Purposes

First time I tried “Hangover Sucks” was a weekday hosting-Quizzo-induced hangover. The initial thing that struck me about it: Not really the nicest of tastes. However, two lozenges temporarily battled back a slight headache (but, I still still needed to drop an aspirin or two when it reared back up within an hour). However, the…

An Important Message For Floyd Mayweather

Dear Mr. Mayweather, Hey, Floyd. I feel as if I can call you Floyd, what with having met you nine years ago before you decimated the late Arturo Gatti. You probably remember talking about that fancy watch you were wearing in Atlantic City. I know I do. Anyway, that’s not why I’m writing today. This…

Philly Daily News: Impregnating Chelsea Clinton Is More Awesome Than A Pulitzer

For all the carrying on it does about winning state-journalism awards, the Philadelphia Daily News sure seems to think knocking up an ex-president’s daughter is more awesome than even a Pulitzer Prize, albeit one that was won by a writer for its co-owned “rival” newspaper. This picture comes to you from the Saturday, April 19…

This Is The Most Impressive Thigh Gap Collection You Will Ever See

Louden and I went to the Philadelphia Zoo today. Again. The mission was to take a ride on the Zoo Balloon, but that was not to be as ZB was closed due to wind conditions above the ground, I suppose. As we were making our way out, though, we passed the flamingo area. And they…

Is Siri A Xenophobe?

I was fully prepared to type out a whole diatribe. It was going to be about how I don’t think I should easily be able to get flight information regarding mid-air flights by saying the words “Planes Overhead” into my iPhone. But, worries about Big Brother (or Sister) encroachment dissipated quickly (if only temporarily) last…

A Report From April Fool’s Night Quizzo At Billy Murphy’s Irish Saloonery

April 1 marked the first-ever dually hosted Quizzo at Billy Murphy’s Irish Saloonery in East Falls. Quizzo Dan and I teamed up to ask 1) really simple questions, 2) pretty much impossible questions and 3) a scant few in between. Get it? (See speed-round questions below for edification)… Anyway, these diagnostics led to a few…
