The Great Keaton Family Debate
I don't really have much to say about the now infamous gubernatorial commercial featuring impartial observer Michael J. Fox that other blogs won't cover in detail. With all the chatter it has produced, Doyle probably doesn't need to run it a single time. I certainly think the ad says a lot more about Jim Doyle than it does about Michael J. Fox. One is a poor guy pleading for his life, while the other is willing to cash in on that desperation.
I was going to crack a joke about Doyle's next ad being Tina Yothers pleading for stem cells to cure her fatness - she's on Celebrity Fit Club 4 - which led to this instant messenger discussion with my pal Evil Grossmouth. We sound like we're out getting our nails done at the salon.
York: Will stem cells cure Tina Yothers' obesity?
York: She's on "Celebrity Fit Club 4"
Grossmouth: She was kind of huge right around Family Ties time, wasn't she? or is that a recent thing?
York: I think that's pretty recent.
Grossmouth: By what definition is Tina Yothers a celebrity? (looks up VH1 Website)
Grossmouth: OK, so the Snapple Lady is a "celebrity" according to VH1
York: As is Ted Lange
Grossmouth: Who I have never heard of
York: Isaac the bartender on Love Boat!
Grossmouth: Good God.
Grossmouth: Who is Angie Stone?
York: Singer, I think
Grossmouth: Who is Bone Crusher?
York: I know the answer, but I am ashamed to admit it
York: He was in Bone Thugs n' Harmony
Grossmouth: Is that chick from Wilson Phillips? I thought she just had stomach stapling
York: EXACTLY. Carnie Wilson - formerly known as Carne Asada.
York: How fair is it that she gets to be on this show?
Grossmouth: Who are Erika and Nick? I've never heard of any of these people.
Grossmouth: Tina Yothers looks like she's auditioning for the role of Monica Lewinsky in a Bill Clinton biopic.
Grossmouth: And what would a fat show be without a guy from the Sopranos?
York: Carnie Wilson is officially the Barry Bonds of Celebrity Fit Club
Grossmouth: Everyone hates her?
York: She's a damn cheater!
York: That would be like having a spelling bee where only one contestant gets to use all the letters
York: You can't let someone who has had their stomach stapled on the show!
York: I'm outraged
Grossmouth: How must the doctor who did her surgery feel? Her presence on that show is a walking advertisement that he sucks as a doctor.
Grossmouth: By the way, you should just cut and paste this exchange and post it.
York: I may
Grossmouth: The public deserves to know this stuff
