For those of you who didn't watch the Emmys...Conan O'Brien opened the show with a montage featuring parodies of a number of hit shows, including The Office, House M.D., and 24. One of these parodies involved him flying in a plane that ended up crashing, and Conan crawling onto the "Lost" island, fashioning a hairdryer our of sticks, meeting up with Garcia and entering the hatch.

A nice bit of humor, right?

Apparently not...people are pissed cause the segment aired just a few hours after the plane crash in Kentucky that killed 49 people. So pissed, in fact, that NBC issued an official apology.

How...fucking stupid can you be?

Apparently...as stupid as my father, who, when I tried to discuss this with him, accused Conan of being a gigantic asshole, with a huge ego...an interesting synopsis coming from a person who's never met Conan O'Brien, doesn't watch his show, and, at times, can be a gigantic asshole with a huge ego...

Dad didn't even know what he was talking about in the first place, when I mentioned that the sketch had been taped, probably, days beforehand, his reply was, "No...the Emmys are live..."


Anyway...yeah...the segment was pre-taped, meaning no one involved was sitting there thinking, "Hey...a plane just crashed and a bunch of people died...LET'S MAKE FUN OF 'EM!"

Fucking idiots...

What else...

Today was my first day off after working seven consecutive days, all full shifts, fifty-five hours total...needless to say...I was tired yesterday. I got home from work around 6:30, changed, sat down on my bed and passed out for, like, half an hour.

I went to the gym today, and when I weighed myself after my shower afterwards the scale read 218.5... I'm officially a Cruiserweight! Gregory Helms...here I come...

in fairness, pretaped or not, they could have pulled it

but they didn't, because it wasn't related to, or making fun of, the kentucky incident in any way at all.

The dumbass PC-Police are, as always, blowing everything way out of proportion in their life-long quest to make everything as bland, grey and "unoffensive" as humanly possible.

"Two non-descript, generic people, of no defined race, walk into an establishment of some sort, and one makes a funny, but non-racial/cultural/biased comment to the other" is, basically, the only joke these people want us to be able to make.

Personally, I say "fuck 'em"

i was 6'4, 285 at the start of summer.
i'm 6'4, 285 now that summer is over.

good for you, man.

I really started paying attention to it in January of last year, we had this weigh-in thing at my store, and I weighed in at 250 or so. Which isn't bad for a guy who's 6'3, except that it was mostly gut. So I started consciously trying to eat less, I joined a gym a couple months ago, and I'm consistently down around 220 now. I've probably gone down a pants size, but I haven't gone and tried on any 36-waist pants yet.

Keep up the good work, don't let them girls getcha down ;)

Ok.... I honestly don't like Conan AT ALL, but even I agree that's stoo-pid!!

It reminds me of 9/11, when shortly thereafter they made a big fuss over the fact that the new upcoming LOTR movie was called, "The Two Towers"....THAT'S THE FUCKING NAME OF THE STORY! It's not like it's making fun of 9/11, or even referencing it at all.

I swear, people aren't happy unless there's something to bitch about.
