Okay, now that the kids have gone to bed…
Singer/actress Kristen Chenoweth likes to tell the story of doing A Chorus Line in her Bible Belt Oklahoma home town, where the musical references to “tits and ass” were troublesome. The solution: change the phrase to “boobs and butt.”
She’s serious about this, and in fact when telling the story, won’t even speak the word “tits.”
Okay, “butt” for “ass” I can understand. But seriously, is “boobs” such a vast improvement over “tits” that she doesn’t see anything strange about this?

I’m trying to decide whether I like or hate the concept. It’s certainly going to color how I listen to this symphony in the future (as many videos do).
The rationale behind the video is

Perhaps the “Twinkee Madness” comic (see two minutes ago) is somehow explained by this previous strip, which is also a CIDU (unless Adam is just saying that Victor Hugo novels are very long, which isn’t much of a joke either for Adam or Basset):
But that being said, this is all manner of awesome:

Don’t you hate when that happens? I don’t see the joke, though.
And am I the only person “of a certain age” who was reminded of this?

And speaking of Fred (”Fred Who?”) Karger… I interviewed him Friday morning. Yes, I know just a couple of months ago I was kind of mocking him — but I’ve since come to realize that I like the guy and most of what he stands for.
The interview will be online Monday.

A commercial for a South African fast food chain. For some reason, some customers in Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe were not amused (this seems to load very slowly, by the way).
