Ah-ha! That's Who It Is

MDH and I watched that movie Ted recently.  If I'm being polite I'll say it wasn't my cup of tea.  If I'm not being polite I'll say it suh-hucked. 

Sue me.  I don't think Seth McFarlane is all that funny.  And I noticed that they used up quite a lot of dialog mentioning over and over again that Mark Wahlberg's character in the movie is 35.  In fact they never shut up about it.  Perhaps because he has the crows feet and furrowed forehead of a 65 year old meth addict and his acting is... well.. I guess we needed convincing.

Anyhoo... I've been bugged for days, not about the stupid movie, but because that damn talking teddy bear reminds me of someone.  Who the hell could it be?  That voice sounds exactly just like.... and that crass, dismissive manner of speaking about women and Jews and saying fuck in front of everyone ... if I could only.... it's right there....

then the phone rang.  Eureka!

My brother in law Syracuse!!  (AKA Captain Caveman)
Yes ladies, he's STILL single.

I've been dying for an update about the brother-in-law. Wait, you still have just the one, right? What was it he did, besides walking around shirtless and hitting on the neighbors? Put paper plates in the dishwasher?

Seth MacFarlane is terrible. The original incarnation of Family Guy was pretty funny, but when they brought it back, it was not only not funny anymore, it increasingly relied on racist, misogynistic humor and jokes about pedophiles and domestic violence. Naturally, it became a big hit!
it's strange how Mark Wahlberg can be great in one movie (eg The Fighter) and horrrrrrrible in another.

I'm back. I wonder if I'll stick around this time! Your blog will be a welcome respite when I need to laugh and/or read something interesting. I wonder if I can still be funny. Anyway, this is literally the first Blog post I've read since I revived CPW about 2 hours ago, so I'll look forward to catching up and reading more B.I.L. stories.

Ah-ha indeed. I had such low expectations for this movie that I only wanted to kill myself 2 or 3 times for sitting through it! That's gotta count for something right?
