Rerun Of The Day: Poorly Placed Ads


The ad reads, "Dad, what would happen to Mommy and me if you died." Yikes.

The ad on the bus reads, "If you don't have GIO Third Party Property Insurance, we suggest you don't hit this bus."

Photos from,, CNN, Yahoo, Fox News and other sources.

Classic TV Show Open of The Day

I don't remember watching this one. Looks like I missed out on something wonderful.

Really Bad Dating Profile Videos Of The Day

Yuks from LOTD reader Andrea and


Profile headline: “Hi, I’m a PC.”

Major mistakes: Mentioning how you are specifically looking for a girl with red hair because “I used to date a girl with red hair who is really special to me.” Also, having "perfectprofile" as your MySpace page kinda sets him up for failure.

Conclusion: No girl wants a guy who’s going to make them wear a mask of his ex-girlfriend’s face while they have sex, especially when you know it will end with a tearful orgasm and mumbled whispers of regret. And if she does she’s probably fat.


Profile headline: “If you’re looking to settle down into a relationship that moves way too fast and is intense and miserable from the get-go, I’m your girl.”

Major mistakes: She was actually doing pretty well, right between the part where she put on those sunglasses and the part where she revealed that she will eventually choose her husband based on his footwear and ring tone. But it’s probably good to discount three-quarters of the male population for wearing black shoes and not downloading hip-hop ring tones. That can’t possibly fail.

Conclusion: Chandelier is a stupid name.


Profile headline: “What rhymes with d-bag?”

Major mistakes: “Don’t rap your online dating profile” is one of those rules that’s just so obvious that no one thinks to reinforce it. It’s like “Don’t climb up on your boss’ desk and take a dump.” You just know it’s wrong, don’t you?

Conclusion: Many, many girls will go for this guy. And all of them will have herpes.

Rerun Of The Day: Celebs Behaving Badly

Audio recordings of famous people being little bitches. Most of these have been around for years, but if you haven't heard them yet, you're in for a treat. Click the pic to hear someone go off.

Rated R for hilariously foul language.

Jack Palance loves doing voiceover.

Casey Kasem has some issues with a special long-distance dedication to a dog named Snuggles.

William Shatner doesn't like taking direction. But we already knew this from his acting.

Britney Spears doesn't like her band or her concert audience, and says so -- over her mic, so they can hear it. Oopsy.

Cher shares some feelings with paparazzi - and who can blame her?

Crusty old forgotten singer Paul Anka has a wardobe suggestion for his band, and some valuable tips on flying, too!

A classic - Orson Welles peddling fish sticks and hamburgers. I played Lear, goddamn you!!

Videos Of The Day: Extras

This Ricky Gervais series on HBO is long gone -- they did two 6-episode seasons and a wrap-up movie -- but I still watch the reruns when I can, because the show makes me laugh as hard as anything else I've ever seen. Both seasons are on DVD, and I highly recommend them.

If you aren't familiar with "Extras," it starred Ricky as an extra (or "background actor," as he prefers to call himself) whose work brought him and his friend Maggie (Ashley Jensen), also a movie extra, in contact with big-name actors (Kate Winslet, Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom, etc.). These A-list actors appeared in the show and had great fun sending themselves up.

Some clips...

Andy (Ricky Gervais) auditions for a play directed by Ian McKellen, who explains his complex acting method.

Andy and Maggie talk to Kate Winslet the day after Kate has given Maggie advice about how to talk dirty on the phone with her new boyfriend, who wants her to be more sexually daring.

Andy and Maggie meet David Bowie at a club, and Andy makes the mistake of complaining about the lousy sitcom he's been doing.

Maggie meets Orlando Bloom on a movie set

Daniel Radcliffe hits on Maggie.

Daniel Radcliffe continues his pursuit of Maggie. Extra points if you recognize the older woman (an A-list star herself, once upon a time).
