You Can Call Me Mrs. Nabisco

In contrast to Michael Moore, I really enjoy Morgan Spurlock's documentaries (although Moore makes some valid points, they are overshadowed by his um, zeal, to put it nicely). I was really disappointed when his television show, "30 Days," ended. I watched it religiously. I love how he really makes a point to show both sides of any given issue. So, I am interested to see his new movie called Pom Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold.

Even more interesting is how he apparently convinced Altoona, Pennsylvania, a city of 50,000 people (the tenth most populous city in the state), to officially change their name to Pom Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Pennsylvania for a period of 60 days. Am I the only one who thinks this is absolutely nuts and absolutely brilliant at the same time? The city gets instant recognition and so does Spurlock's film. It is a win/win! Plus, Spurlock is paying Altoona $25,000 for their temporary name change, which will be used to fund the police department. The downside is that their city will be named Pom Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold for 60 days. Yuck. But overall, it is a very creative marketing strategy, don't you think?

Maybe I will change my name to my favorite food brand, Nabisco. That's Mrs. Nabisco, to you.

Happy Hump Day!

Creative Resume Writing

This is BRILLIANT! If I ever start my own company, I am going to hire a Private Investigator to find this guy to work for me. He is clearly a very talented man and a real go-getter! My favorite is the fact that he has cat-like reflexes (I wonder if he always lands on his feet when falls, as well. I would have to test this as a part of the interview process). Who doesn't want that in a potential employee? YES PLEASE! HIRED!

Happy Monday!

Trump to Obama: "You're Fired!"

Have you heard the news? Donald Trump has been generating a lot of publicity lately and surprisingly, it not for his ginger comb-over, cheating on his wife, or a lawsuit against him. He is considering running for President in 2012.

Normally, I don't really keep up with who is who in the politic arena. However, I have recently become more aware that who we vote into office really does make a difference. It is important to vote for someone who shares your values if you want them to truly represent you. That being said, I would like to know how Donald Trump thinks he is even close to being any kind representation of the average American. A. He is a gazillionaire, B. He has had the same bad haircut for 30+ years (okay, maybe these people can relate), C. He is as promiscuous as a bonobo chimpanzee (the Republicans frown upon this sort of behavior) and D. Oh, and did I mention he is a gazillionaire? He probably doesn't even know who Joe the Plumber is, much less would he be able to relate to him or be concerned with his plight.

Besides all of those reasons, he has the personality of a doorknob. So, if he actually gets the Republican nomination, he would be wise to choose Sarah Palin (that is if she is over all that Tea Party nonsense by then) as his Vice President. That way, he will have the brains of the pair, and she will have the nice hair and charisma. Or better yet, since he loves Omarosa so much, maybe she could be his running mate to gain support from all the new minority voters who voted for Obama in 2008...because let's be real, they only voted for him for one reason. I would be willing to bet they have no concept of what it means to be a Democrat vs. a Republican, nor would they have any desire to know anything about a candidate beyond his or her external appearance.

Oh gosh, I can only imagine what his slogan will be. Probably something along the lines of, "Obama, you're fired!" So predictable.

Speaking of "fired," Trump is fired up about Obama allegedly not being a natural born citizen and therefor, ineligible to be President. Uh, Donny, maybe you should put down the Wall Street Journal every now and again and brush up on your current events. All speculation as to where he was born should have been put to rest in June 2008 when he made public a copy of his Birth Certificate.

So, Donny, maybe you should call off your goons and lay low for a while until your official announcement in June. You certainly don't need anymore bad press (but you could use a new hair stylist). Just tryna' help a brotha' out! :)

Happy Friday!!!!
