Louis Aguirre makes the most of a 💩ty story!
June 25th, 2019 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]

When you work in news, you have to do whatever story they assign you to do. No matter how 💩ty is. Yesterday, Louis Aguirre was given the crappy assignment of doing a story about a man who pooped in a stranger’s driveway in North Lauderdale (because it is Florida) and it was all caught on the home owner’s Ring.

Well, when life hands you poop, you make hot chocolate. At least that is what the WPLG reporter did. He did pun and after pun because what else can you do? You have to have fun with it. The pkg had two ways of going, either down the crapper or coming up smelling like roses. I am happy he went with the latter because it brought a smile to my face. But then again, toilet humor always does that.

If I were still judging local Emmys, I would give Louis the win. Although the last time I judged them, I was in Miami (an intern working with Louis) and you cannot do your local market. So I beg the Emmy voters, who get this entry, vote for him. Help him turn 💩 into gold! Literally.


This weatherman does not know what a clit is!
June 20th, 2019 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]

Henry DiCarlo was doing the weather on KTLA and he decided to bring up a Jaws reference. He could not remember if the character’s name was Clint or Clit. As soon as he said the latter name, the anchors Chris Schauble and Lynette Romero could not stop laughing. Not because Robert Shaw played Quint, but because he did not realize what he said was so funny.

The only person who is not laughing is DiCarlo’s wife. I mean if he does not know what a clit is, what else does he not know about it? Poor Mrs. DiCarlo.

BTW I wish there was a video of his reaction when he found out what he said was so wrong. Now, that would have been hysterical.


Alex Trebek says his cancer indicator numbers are down
May 1st, 2019 under Jeopardy, TV News. [ Comments: none ]

Back in March, Alex Trebek revealed that he is battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Since then he has given several quick updates on his battle. Today, he sat down with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts and gave her a much thorough update.

The Jeopardy host told her that his oncologist says he is doing well, even though he does not always feel that way. He explained, “I am used to dealing with pain, but what I am not used to dealing with is the surges that come on suddenly of deep, deep sadness. And it brings tears to my eyes.” Then he added that through this process, he learned that he is “a little bit of a wuss”.

That is the emotional side of it, he also talked about the numbers. He says that his platelet counts, his blood counts and his weight are steady. There is one group of numbers that have gotten lower since he started chemo and they are the cancer indicator ones.

Even though the chemotherapy is knocking him out, he is still going ahead with it. He is scheduled to go in next week for another round of it.

Believe it or not, since he was diagnosed with cancer, he taped 50 episodes of his game show. Just like us, he is enjoying watching Jeopardy James Holzhauer beat all of the past contestant records.

And we are enjoying watching him beat cancer. His positive attitude is going to help him go the distance and we are there to support him throughout it.


Wasp’s up with this weatherman?
April 25th, 2019 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]

We have seen weatherman brave hurricanes, floods, freezing cold weather and other natural disasters. However, I never saw any of them be as brave as WTVA’s Joel Young. While he was telling the people of Tupelo, Mississippi the weather for the day, a wasp flew onto his shirt. Instead of screaming like a girl (like I would have done), he continued on as though nothing was any really different. That was until the bugger got a little too close to his stinger. Then he acted like any man would and stepped off the set to protect his weather stick.

What was he thinking as it was happening? He said, “I’m not sure if I was scared of getting stung… Or how I would react if it had stung me on live TV. 😨” I think it was the latter because no one wants to go viral like that meteorologist who acted hysterically when he saw a roach. Which is what we would have preferred.

And that’s all the buzz!


Is this what Def Leppard’s Pour Some Sugar On Me is really about?
March 27th, 2019 under 80s, TV News. [ Comments: none ]

Def Leppard is being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and they working the press circuit to promote it. This morning, they were on Good Morning America and they might have revealed what their biggest hit Pour Some Sugar On Me is really about.

Here I have thought for all of this time that it was about sex, but it is really about putting sugar in a coffee cup? Color me red light, yellow light, green-a-light surprised!

BTW I wonder how many times they have been asked to do that since the single came out in 1987?
