Midweek Thoughts – Part 15

midweekthoughts

Midweek Thoughts! Yay!

It’s a beautiful day today. It’s sunny and 51 degrees, and according to Accuweather we’ll reach a high of 75. My first thought upon exiting my apartment was, “wow, it’s much too nice out to be working today.”

But nice weather aside, it’s a blessing to have a job. It’s a blessing to be here at work today. There are so many people either out of work or working a low-paying job. Meanwhile I have a job that is consistent, pays decent, and allows me an extraordinary amount of freedom in how I conduct myself. (I get to set my own work schedule, vacation days don’t require advance notice, I can take my lunch break whenever I want, etc etc.) Nobody really cares how I do my job as long as the work gets done. So I guess my point here is that I’m happy to be at work today.

Conan is coming to TBS! I have to be honest, I don’t think I’ve watched TBS even once over the last three years. But that’s going to change in November! I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Conan O’Brien is a funny dude and his Twitter feed is hilarious! “Just got the new iPad. This amazing device has already revolutionized the way I use a calculator.” Now that’s a good tweet!

Speaking of iPads, I find it hilarious that a device can be considered “revolutionary” and “magical” when all they basically did was take a device that already existed and make it bigger. It’s a giant iPod Touch. Yay! When all of those Apple fanboys finally leave their homes and try to take the iPad with them, they’ll discover it doesn’t fit in their pockets. This will lead to a worldwide increase in the sale of man-purses. Hey, maybe Apple could release an official man-purse. They could call it… the iPurse!

And finally, it is perhaps the most exciting new product of 2010. KFC has released the “Double Down” sandwich. It’s the first mainstream sandwich I know of that replaces the bread with two big hunks of chicken.

Aside from the chicken “bread”, it also contains bacon, cheese and a special sauce.  Unfortunately, I can’t eat bacon (despite the fact that I love it) because pork upsets my stomach, and I don’t care for mayo. (The special sauce is based on mayo.) I do commend them for not putting any vegetables on the sandwich though. It’s perfect for your average obese carnivore. (Or aspiring obese carnivores.) If ever there was a sandwich made with a man in mind, it’s this one.

It’s also good for grossing out vegans if you’re into that sort of thing.

It’s Been A Great Month

It’s January 31st, the last day of the first month of this blog. It’s been a wild ride and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it.

In just the first month there’s been massive growth! I now have an average of 17 readers a day, and spammers have attempted to post spam over a thousand times! The critics are loving this blog as well.

“I feel that Mr Nethead’s WebChunks is one of the best blogs on the Internet. He’s witty, charming, fun and informative. His cutting-edge range of topics is humorous and educational at the same time. I bet he is constantly shooing the ladies away.” – Mr Nethead of Mr Nethead’s WebChunks

In the first month we’ve covered such exciting topics as rare citrus fruits, throat drops that taste like candy, flying cars, two different types of cereal, Arby’s, the amazing Gorillapod, and the departure of our beloved Conan O’Brien from NBC.

So let’s look forward to a February full of web chunky goodness. Thanks for reading.

Your pal,

Mr Nethead

Midweek Thoughts – Part 4

Hey everyone! It’s Wednesday! That means it’s time for another exciting installment of Midweek Thoughts.

Facebook ads crack me up sometimes. I suppose if they didn’t, the blatant invasion of privacy would be a little creepy. So who can spot what’s wrong with this ad?

troy

Wow, it’s a beautiful woman… named Troy. *raises eyebrow* I’m sorry, but Troy is a horrible name for a woman. And isn’t this supposed to be an ad for 26 year-old males seeking cheap car insurance? Why is there a woman in the picture at all? I guess it’s better than the other ads aimed at 26 year-old males seeking cheap hoes.

For those of you who may have read yesterday’s blog and are wondering, Conan O’Brien wrote the following episodes of The Simpsons:

  1. New Kid On The Block
  2. Marge vs The Monorail
  3. Homer Goes to College
  4. Treehouse of Horror IV

Aaron Rodgers’ middle name is Charles.

The scientific name for an almond is prunus dulcis. (Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?) Personally, I prefer my almonds to be roasted in honey.

And speaking of honey, I’ve heard people refer to honey as “bee poop” a few times. That is totally and completely incorrect. Honey is made through a regurgitation process, therefore it would be much more accurate to call it “bee puke.” Mmmm… puke.

Oh Conan, I Will Miss You

im-with-coco

If NBC wants to make money and have high ratings, they should sacrifice their dignity and just let Conan O’Brien mock them every night. Honestly, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen funnier television.

Here’s a quote from last night’s show:

“Everyone watch the Golden Globes last night? Did you see that? Last night at the Golden Globes, Julia Roberts said that NBC was in the toilet. Yeah, NBC was upset, and toilets were furious.”

And then there was Conan’s awesome song.

“”This is true. It’s been widely reported that I can’t say anything negative about the network. Luckily folks, they’re not saying I can’t sing anything negative about the network.” And then he sung, “Morons. Incompetent Morons. These people are morons. La-dee-dee-dee.”

Apparently nobody has uploaded that clip to Youtube yet, which is unfortunate since it’s much funnier if you can actually watch it. I did find it on a website, which doesn’t allow embedding, so here’s the link: http://origin.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/01/video-conan-obriens-stinging-song-blasting-nbc-morons

Conan O’Brien has always been funny. But when he has nothing to lose and can just cut loose and say whatever he wants, he just might be the funniest man alive.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest you head over to NBC.com and watch last night’s episode. (Available until February 11, 2010.) I can’t help but wonder how NBC feels when they’re uploading Conan’s videos. Heh.

UPDATE: The clip is now available on Youtube, so I have embedded it below. Enjoy!

Midweek Thoughts – Part 2

It’s Wednesday, that means it’s time for another exciting round of Midweek Thoughts.

The following words can be found on a large McDonalds cup, “Here’s to you – A toast to your wisdom, clever drink buyer – you have selected a classic fountain beverage, precisely mixed for maximum refreshment.” Is it just me or is McDonalds trying to sound like Burger King there? Every time I read that, I hear the voiceover guy from the Burger King commercials in my head.

I saw a first look at the 2011 Ford Focus last night on CNET. It looks nothing like a Ford Focus! The vehicle is not only beautiful, but it will feature automatic parallel parking assistance. Ford is apparently trying to reposition the Focus as a mid-level instead of an entry-level vehicle. I definitely need to start stashing as much money as I can, ‘cause I want one.

After carefully considering the matter, I’ve come to the conclusion that NBC is run by a bunch of idiots. Anyway, just in case Conan happens to be one of the five people reading this blog, I just want to say, YOU ROCK MY SOCKS, CONAN O’BRIEN. I LOVE YOUR SHOW AND WATCH IT OCCASIONALLY!
