Show of Hands

Who else:

  • Thinks the new Hulk movie is going to be a big green turd?
  • Is already tired of the new Death Cab album?
  • Thinks this is perhaps the greatest culinary invention ever, and also thinks it would make an outstanding gift for the [C]R's upcoming birthday?
  • Is annoyed that Monocle magazine has mentioned the 2016 Olympic bid competition twice in as many months without mentioning Chicago as a top contender?
  • Doesn't know what the hell Monocle magazine is?
  • Will be drinking Summer Shandy all season long?
  • Thinks Smith's Night at Danny's could use some improvement, despite the antics of the Private Dancer (it's OK, this is more of an inside joke).

The Hulk movie can't be worse than the Sex and the City movie.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Prashant:: O yes it can!

Some Guy said...

Yeah, that Summer Shandy shit (say THAT fast!) is refreshing. The trick is not to expect it to taste like beer. Once you get past that, delicious!

the new death cab album started out disappointing and ended with a yawn.

i have no idea what monocle magazine is.

i am excited to try summer shandy.

no superhero movie will be able to outdo 'iron man' this summer, except for 'dark knight'. that shit's gonna rock it.

I expect the new Hulk movie to be just as contrived, predictable, cloying, mainstream and saccharine as Summer Shandy. I'm sorry, that stuff is foul. My dad said it was, plus I bet I wouldn't even like it if I tried it.

Me thinks they should at least hand out gladiolas & pancake puffs filled with nacho cheese at Smith's night and maybe play more than one hour of The Smith's or Morrissey without skipping back to Depeche Mode.

Me also thinks that we're going to The Smith's night at Delilah's when they have it next.

- I'd be more interested in seeing a movie called Sex & The Hulk" than the green turd you mentioned.

-I actually got sucked into 15 minutes of that Pancake Puffs infomercial this weekend. I could not believe my eyes.

-I don't know what Monocle magazine is, but by definition alone, you gotta cut it some slack. It only has good vision in one eye.

-Summer Shandy: HOLLA!

-Smith's night? How have I never even heard of Smith's night?

Smith's night has to be better than the dramatic poetry readings about brown bunny paws 9er and I witnessed there.

Also, does no one remember the Hulk movie with Eric Bana(HOTNESS) that came out a few years back? I think it's funny they keep pretending it never happened.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Some Guy:: Not only am I going to be drinking a lot of it, I think I will be using it to mix into my Vodka Lemonades all summer. Is that wrong?

D:: I know, right? I pee my pants in excitement whenever I think about Dark Knight. Was that an overshare?

Fort Knocks:: Summer Shandy may be many things, but "cloying" it is not.

Classy:: Agree and agree! But hopefully Private Dancer will be at Delilah's too. Swear to God, next time I am going to go talk to her and have a new BFF for the summer (aside from my Summer Shandy, of course).

Jules:: Holla indeed. Careful about what you say about the Pancake Puff - I am going to be All Up in That Shit soon and have a party where nothing but pancake puffs will be served. And you will love it.

House of Jules said...

Cherry: As for your upcoming pancake puffs party... Don't threaten ME with a good time!

If Leinie's Shandy & whoever "Private Dancer" is are your summer BFFs, can I be your BFF starting this fall?

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

We are losing the Olympic bid because of all the murders. Totally not fair, cause I was only directly responsible for 3 of them.

minijonb said...

If I hear that new Death Cab song on the radio one more time I'm gonna scream.

Smith's night only lacked one thing... the Smiths.

Spammon said...

- No, the first Hulk movie stank. Ed Norton may actually pull it off. Plus with Iron Man supposedly making a cameo, I'm freaking excited.

- Funny. My wife loves DCFC. We actually went to their concert on Monday.

- Pancake batter stuffed with hot dogs? yikes.

pancakes puffs have got nothing on my batter blaster, though the two might make a great team.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Not Carrie:: Where have you been? And yeah, I love me some Danny's but not on poetry night.

Jules:: Hmm, I could probably relegate Private Dancer to secondary status this summer for you.

Dr. Ken:: I've seen you murder more than three - on the dancefloor at Liar's Club.

MiniJB:: I hear you. Let the DCFC backlash begin!

Niner:: True Dat. But at least it had the cool 80s hair and outfits.

Spammon:: You need to see the bigger picture with the Pancake Puff: You can make all kinds of awesome shit with it - like cornbread puffs stuffed with Nacho Cheese Combos and salsa (that's going to be my specialty).

Mr. Shain:: I don't want to get anywhere near your batter blaster, thank you.

The Hulk Movie will be a disaster, mostly because it does not star me.

Julie_Gong said...

1. i like the new death cab album.
2. you def need to drink summer shady all summer long. help me pay some bills. drink as much as you can. if you can prove it to me maybe i'll send you a nice shirt.

I'm Frank said...

I thought the first Hulk movie would've served as a warning to film makers everywhere to never try anything so foolish ever again.

I'm Not Carrie Bradshaw said...

NYC, baby. When are you gracing us with your presence out WEST again so we can create beautiful pancake puff creations?

Ahhhhh, Pancake puffs. Nothing builds table muscle quite like a em'.

Kadonkadonk said...

Lienies!!! God, do I miss that!!

radioactive girl said...

Pancake puffs! My son is dying to have that. He is 8 and asked for it for his birthday. I did not remember to buy it because I suck. I am a sucker for infomercials/infomercial like commercials though so I bet one morning while running on the treadmill at 5 am I will order it.

Ben said...

New hulk movie is such a waste of time. The people who are getting excited about it need to remember the fact the same movie came out three (five?) years ago.

As for the mini pancakes, they make those in The Netherlands all the time! Seriously. They're awesome.
