Retro: What is Alex Trebeck totally burned a contestant?
April 23rd, 2020 under Jeopardy, Retro. [ Comments: none ]

Alex Trebeck is everyone’s favorite Canadian (apologies to the two Ryans). He is so lovable, and never intentionally says anything mean to anyone on the show. However, the other night he did.

The Jeopardy host was talking to a contestant about her favorite type of music, and he said to her, “It doesn’t like fun.”

What type of music is it? She says it is called Nerd Core Hip Hop. I never heard of it, have you? We are not alone, Trebeck was also clueless about it, so he asked what it is for $200.

Susan says it is for “People, who identify as nerdy, rapping about the things they love, videogames, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners. You Know?” This is where it got really good. Without hesitation, Trebeck responds to her with, “Losers, in other words.”

I have no idea where that came from because he always so nice, but I love it. It is so out of right field; I didn’t know how to react to him being all savage. Therefore, I had to watch it over and over again. You know what, it gets funnier every time.

When it comes to the musicians of Nerd Core Hip Hop, I can already imagine their diss back. They’ll be like, “We might be losers, but we are the ones playing Jeopardy. You are just the host!” He will tell them, “Yeah, but I live in a multi-dollar mansion with a much younger wife, and you live in your mother’s basement with a fleshlight.” With that, the mic has been dropped.

UPDATE: My friend told me this is an oldie but goodie diss. It originally aired in October of 2016.


Retro: Robin Williams’ first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson
February 25th, 2020 under Retro, Robin Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Long before Robin Williams was a late night show staple, he was not big into being on talk shows. For some reason, today The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson decided to post his first appearance on it back on October 14, 1981.

I am so happy that they did, I have tears streaming down my face. Not from missing the comedic genius who was taken away from us much too soon. It is because he is so freaking funny. Even Carson did not know what hit him. It was a Robinado. Once you were swept up in it, there was no way of breaking free. Not that you would want to know.

Since we all need to laugh more, press play and be prepared to have your pants get wet.


Retro: Gordan Ramsey talks about munching down on a hairy French delicacy
March 28th, 2018 under Gordon Ramsay, Graham Norton, Retro. [ Comments: none ]

Graham Norton posted an oldie but goodie interview with baddie Gordon Ramsay. I say baddie because the BBC host made the mistake of asking him about his French girlfriend.

You see she taught, the then 23-year-old, French and Frenching. Not the upper lips, but the others one. There was only one thing, he says, “It’s difficult down there.” Then he explained that her “funny” started around her belly button and it was very hairy. Adding, “They don’t do bikini waxes in France.” Total baddie right. Plus, he looked like a little mischievous boy has shared this information.

Think it cannot get worst? Graham tried to change the subject to French food and told Ramsay said that he cannot make peace with French women by saying their food sounds sexier because they are already insulted. Then the Chef said, “I did not insult them, I just said they were bushy.” This is when it gets bad, he asked French actress Juliette Binoche, who was sitting next to him, “Do you wax?” Her face says it all.

Think his goose has finally been cooked? Far from it because he then asked the host if he waxes his crack. Why? Because Ramsay thought it was quite common for him and friends to do that. This is when Norton’s face says it all.

When it comes to if Ramsay takes the crust off of his Beef Wellington, he does not.

This interview is such a classic because you just do not expect him to be so naughty and look so devilish as talks about such things. I wish he would let loose on American TV like he did there. I just got a huge thrill of watching him be a naughty, naughty boy. One you want to take back to the red room and punish!

He needs to do a Fifty Shades like cookbook. One where he has to do a lot of feather plucking and removing peels. If you get what I mean?


Retro: The first video ever posted to YouTube!
July 8th, 2011 under Retro. [ Comments: none ]

I have always wondered what was the first video that was ever posted on YouTube and now thanks to OMG Facts I know and you can know too. Here is what co-founder Jawed Karim said with it, “The first video on YouTube, uploaded at 8:27PM on Saturday April 23rd, 2005. The video was shot by Yakov Lapitsky at the San Diego Zoo.”
It is amazing how far YouTube has come in just six years. Especially after watching that video that was only :18 long. In Hebrew 18 is chai which means life and it is amazing the video was that length because YouTube has definitely taken on a life of its own.


Retro: The first McDonalds ad!!!
December 28th, 2010 under Ads, Fast Food, Retro. [ Comments: none ]

For some reason the first McDonalds ad was on the front of page of YouTube, so I had to check it out. What I saw from the ad that made its debut on June 27, 1962 shocked me. Seriously it is amazing that the fast food restaurant is as huge as it is after that ad. I even think that that version of Ronald McDonald is scarier than the newest version of the Burger King King and I never that would be possible.
