Read this article on NPR News about a baby tiger being drugged and stuffed in a bag to be smuggled in.   It never ceases to surprise me the crazy things that people will do….

I just heard on Today’s show that Suri Cruise has wardrobe that’s estimated at 3.6 million dollars.  What in the world???  And Katie Homes admitted that Suri chose her clothes since she was 1.5 years old.  Do they even talk at that age?  I don’t know, isn’t this just too much?  I mean she’s cute and all but is this just ridiculous.

A gentleman named Rick Norsigian is living the life that I want.  He bought some negatives at a garage sale for $45 and eventually discovered that the negatives belonged to the great Ansel Adams.  And yes, Mr. Norsigian was recently informed that the negatives were appraised for $200 million dollars.

I’m not sure how this slip my radar.  But yes, there will be an actual theatrical release of a movie based on the Facebook story this October. | continue reading |

Saw this Korean Vogue cover with Mr. Lee Byung Hun and Josh Hartnett.  Folks, it’s the freaking VOGUE!  It’s not a mom and pop newspaper being printed a HP printer.  It’s the VOGUE!!!!!  They don’t have ONE employee who speaks English well enough to tell them that they shouldn’t be printing, “Two of us Couples!”  SERIOUSLY!!!!  I know my English grammar isn’t my forte, but even I know that, that sounds beyond funny.  But this is VOGUE!  SERIOUSLY?????

But they do look pretty darn good in these photos….

John and I usually don’t watch Big Brother. But the other nite, I was totally capitvated by the strange outfit that Julie Chen was wearing,  and that made us watch good 30 minutes of this show.  Seriously what was she thinking?  I thought she was married to some rich dude.  She couldn’t afford to get more fashionable thing to wear on a national TV than this Snuggies wannabe dress? C’mon!

I heard about this Japanese place in LA called Urasawa.  Toast of the town, cream of the crop, best of the best, Anthony Bourdain worthy, and etc.  I was searching the dub dub dub and came across this blog called Kevineats.com.  Where a guy named Kevin went to Urasawa and took some fantastic pictures and writes really eloquently about his experience.  But what was so shocking about his blog was, how much money he spent at these places.

DSCF6368

Please note, the dude and his friends spent $160 on WATER.  I’m pretty sure a monthly service for Poland Springs is about $30 a month. This is on a SINGLE MEAL!  I enjoy a nice meal time to time but it made me wonder how much money I would have to make, to make this kind of meal ($500/person) justifiable.  I couldn’t come up with a figure.  How do I justify living so extravagantly at such extreme level? I wouldn’t be able to.  I know too many people who are financially suffering and literally can not afford to have 3 meals a day….

Okay so this is my THIRD blog entry regarding these hideous things.  I initially blogged about how ridiculous it was, then I blogged about how it invaded one of my favorite TV shows.  And here I am blogging about this aweful things one more time.

Just when I thought it wasn’t possible for these things to get any worse, I sat thru a commercial over this weekend that was promoting their new item.  Snuggies in “animal print” y’all.  That’s right!  I really wanted to find the commerical but I can’t find it online yet.  One of the funniest line in the commercial is “you asked us to make Snuggies more fashion… well here’s our solution”… The design is exactly the same, but now you could wear the leopard print Snuggies.  Did they really think that, that’s what people were demanding for?  Seriously, WTF….

I’ve been saying this for YEARS.  Why can’t they get REAL Korean actors who can speak Korean like REAL Koreans?????? Funny thing, the actress Yun Jin Kim grew up in the states. And out of everyone in this scene, she’s the only one who sounds like a native Korean.

The thing is, I’m sure there are plenty of starving Korean actors who would LOVE to put LOST on their resume.  Why not give those people the chance?  It always upsets me when I see actors playing Korean parts who are clearly NOT Korean.  WTF. 

But don’t you worry, I found out today that this kind of WTFness is not just with Koreans.  My Russian buddy Olga informs me that this happens all the time with Russian characters as well.  Apparently, Matt Damon’s(as Jason Bourne) Russian was perfect and Ben Affleck’s (as Jack Ryan) sucked! 

so my friend sent me this link last week. i can’t post it because i rechecked the link and it’s no longer there anymore. but basically it was about a pirate hunting russian cruise. if you google pirate hunting cruise, you’ll find a bunch of links. they pretty much all say the same thing …

for 3,500 pounds a day, some russian cruise will arm you with a lot of weapons and take you to the pirate infested seas. they’ll move slowly to bait the pirates and then when they try to hijack you, you attack. and apparently, you’re protected by ex-navy seals or marines or whatever russian equivalent if stuff goes wrong.

yeah …………………..

sad thing is …. i actually thought this was a real cruise ………………

John says to me time to time, “If somebody told me 15 years ago that we would have an entire channel devoted to food and that I would have to pay $5 for coffee, I would’ve laughed at their face!”  Food Network is one of my favorite channels on TV.  But usually I don’t cringe or get disgusted watching Food Network.  But here was one of those moments.

Stevie Famulari is this lady’s name.  I KNOW I could make nicer looking things than her.  I am wondering how she managed to get on TV!!!!!

You heard it right.  Octomom the musical is here.  Or in LA rather.  I don’t even know what to say about this….

I have read all 4 books in the Twilight series (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn) in 2 weekends.  I have never been ashamed to admit this fact until now.

Just in case you are curious, this is the “New Moon” trailer.  After watching their reaction, I watched the trailer again trying to make sense of their reaction.  Ummmm…. still…. ummmm.. oh yeah… ummmm… nothing.

Seriously, you and I both know, that if I had made this up…. you probably wouldn’t even crack a smirk.  But the fact that there are people actually living on a street called “butt hole road“, somewhere on this planet, is freaking entertaining for me.  And no, it’s not an one way street.

kategosselin_hair

I wasn’t going to do it out of respect for her kids but after seeing the hairstyle from a side profile, I cannot stay quiet about Kate Gosselin’s hairstyle.  I’ve never really watched the show before and was not really interested.  But since I am as impressionable as a Pillsbury Doughboy, after being bombarded with the non-stop “Jon and Kate plus 8” over the weekend, I’ve succumb to the dark side and watched the season premiere of the show. 

But sadly, I couldn’t really focus on the show at all, because I was so distracted by Kate’s hairstyle.  SERIOUSLLLYYY, WTF!  It’s like 3 different hairstyle happening on one head. And her Staten Island highlighs just makes the whole look even more… unexplainable.  C’MON!  Somebody should really tell this woman to do somethinga bout her hair.  It’s just R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S!

Just found “See What Stars Look Like With Kate Gosselin’s Hair!” on Us Weekly.  Pretty hilarity!

So I heard about this bank error on Today’s show.  It’s basically about a man named Leo Gao who received over $6 million in his bank account in error and instead of notifying the bank, he decided to flee the country with his girl friend Kara Young with the money.  Then I found out he is KOREAN!!!!! WTF?????  Seriously, why I am hearing so much about Koreans in the news?  It sucks since it’s usually something bad.

can you believe it? some woman in texas has done nearly the impossible. she gave brith to twins. but each baby from a different father. they call this a double conception. and there is literally a one in a million chance for something like this to occur. ladies and gentlemen, we are looking at HISTORY. 

if you look at the picture, i guess they do look a bit different. but seriously, how crazy is this? so how did this happen? i’m not quite 100% sure. basically this dallas texas lady cheated on her partner with another guy. and then magically (or scientifically) they both got her pregnant at the same time. i’m probably not the best person to explain the science of this to you. because that’s just spreading lies. 

when i read the article, i was so dumbfounded but learned a good lesson:

  • if you’re going to cheat, use PROTECTION. condoms, birth control pills, etc. etc. at least if you don’t want both of them to get you pregnant. or use protection with one if you want to get pregnant. at least that way you’re saving time and money in trying to figure out who the baby daddy is. then your chances of getting caught cheating decreases too. 

oh, and with those odds of having a double conecption, i would’ve played the lottery..

As I watched the season finale of “big bang theory” with John, I couldn’t believe that one thing that I hate more than anything, okay, that’s not true, just something that really bothers me have invaded one of my favorite show on tv.  SNUGGIES!!!!!!!!!!

Here’s some aspects about this news story that I find utterly fascinating and entertaining:

  1. The fact that this guy actually consciously decided to not only rob people, but dress up as a ninja to rob people.
  2. The fact that this guy thought his ninja/nunchuck/stealth skillz was good enough to dress up as a ninja, not just as a mask man, or a cowboy, or a mailman.
  3. These comical ninja costume pictures being flashed during news cast, as the reporter says things like, “the ninja burglar may look like this man… “
  4. Notice that these burglaries are only happening in Staten Island.  Seriously…. alot of “odd” things happen there. I know, I actually lived there for a year.
  5. The fact that nobody is reporting some random dude dressed as a ninja roaming the streets of Staten Island.  Could it be that he’s that stealth-like?????
  6. The terrorized victims describe in awe, his fighting, climbing, and running skills.
  7. The fact that this man has robbed SEVENTEEN times and hasn’t been caught yet.  How hard would it be for the police to catch a man dressed up as a ninja?  I lived there, trust me, there aren’t alot of ninjas walking around Victory Blvd.

He may possibly look like this:

1026ninja

But more likely, he probably looks like this:

Here’s an actual report, not funny one, but a serious one about this news story on NY1.

saw this video. it’s kind of really ridiculous. i guess they’re a littttle bit behind on the times.

did anyone hear about this? apparently a 7 year old girl in switzerland found a condom in her happy meal. fries to be more specifc. hmmm. i’m assuming it was a very small condom or a very big fry. OH! hey yo! or or or or or … some employee felt the girl needed protection from any possible diseases the fries could have. OH!! more like an UNHAPPY meal! WHOOO! cue the drums!

 

 

.. i know. really lame. i can’t help myself!!

il_fullxfull_635386121

I am really curious to know who would buy this.  Who would want to serve food/beverage to themsleves, or guests on these cups/saucers?  And let me tell you, these aren’t cheap either for $151!

 

obama20and20air20force20one20ride

John was telling me how he saw this news article about how much it cost the tax payers for the air force one fiasco in new york city the other day.  I was totally floored.  $300,000!!!!!!! Yes, you read it correctly, that’s how much it cost for the air force one to fly over ground zero/statute of liberty with fighter jet escort, and scare the crap out of the paranoid new yorkers. 

Of course, folks like Jon Stewart was able to come up with much more cost-efficient way to deal such tasks.  Jon Stewart’s solution seems sooo much more reasonable compared to 300k.  And there’s something else I found on NY Daily News called, “Create Your Own NYC Air Force One Flyover Photo.”  Pretty hilarious!

n615571544_955569_8386cropped

Bunch of friends forwarded me this article from CNN, asking me to write about it because they felt like the truth needed to be told.  And although this concept/theory does not apply to all single women and of course there are plenty happy single women out there, apparently there plenty of these types of women out there as well. 

And YES, I know some single women who are just MISERABBBLLLLLEEEEEE.  And because they are hating life, they try to make others feel their pain and smear s*** on the fact that I’m married and relatively happy for most part.   Maybe  they just need to get “some” or maybe they need to find a way to redirect their energy and attention to something other than their job and close friends, because it’s really frustrating being around these types of women and it’s completely emotionally draining!

Are all married women happy? Of course not.  Look at our national divorce rate.  Am I always happy of course not.  But I don’t try to manipulate every situation, over think every conversation, and pretend to be something that I am clearly not. 

ps.  the pix of natasha bedingfield at a concert in AC last year that I went to.  she seemed super happy to be single but here’s a song that she wrote that made me think about these types of women!

so, there are some items that are invented that make you go WTF? like for example .. 

although.. it did invent my favorite mcdonald’s commercial. but now. now, there’s something even weirder and more useless. 

CELEBRIDUCKS. seriously, click the link and check out the weirdness.

titanic_1383934c

That’s right!  Miles Morgan Travel is currently booking “Titanic Memorial Cruise”.    Seriously, who would feel comfortable going on this cruise?  NOT ME!  But I’m sure they’ll be plenty of folks who would love to remember the 100th anniversary of the Titanic, by setting sail on the same day as the oringinal Titantic, with the same amount of passengers,  AND following the same route….

heard about this on wait wait don’t tell me podcast …

read here.

is it me or has there been a huge influx of pirate news? more than ever, i’ve been reading about pirates taking over. i’m talking i went from reading about no pirates to all of a sudden 4 or 5 pirate attacks in the past year (from what i can remember). if we were doing a year over year or lifetime over lifetime percentage change, it would come out null in excel.

but seriously, i’m assuming these pirates don’t look like what i probably think they should look like. you know like ..

 

i don’t know. i think if you’re going to be pirate, captain hook that shit up. what’s more badass than thattt?

This seems like a common sense really.  But this is the second time in less than a week where I saw a woman in my office building wearing something entirely inappropriate for work.  Last Friday, it was a woman wearing a really thin white shirt with a really lacy bra.  Which made my mind wonder, so I can’t even begin to imagine what it did to the the men in the building.  And today, I was talking to a girl who’s shirt was so low, I was genuinely afraid that her boobs were gonna pop out of the shirt.  I had really hard time concentrating on our conversation and had to try really hard not to stare at her boobs.  Is this what it feels to be like to be a man???? Scary.

It’s simple.  If there are number of lanes are merging, simply, “you go, I go.”  Maybe it’s too simple of a concept for some people to follow.  Wanting to save 15 seconds in their route, completely over-rides all respectable, mature, and honorable behavior during rush hour.  And when this rule breaker tries to merge ahead of everyone who have been sitting there waiting their turn, I ALWAYS try my darnest, not to let them in my lane.  But somebody always caves in.  And the bastard gets a way with it.   Except this one time. 

My husband and I have been waiting by the Holland tunnel for what felt like days when this punk kid tried to get into our lane.  In our attempt to keep him out of our lane, our side mirrors touched and the kid flipped out.  It almost turned into an actualy physical fight.  I had to stop John from grabbing “the club” from the backseat.  The kid’s justification, “why are you being such an asshole, why can’t you just let another driver in? what’s a big deal?”  I was totally speechless.  Is this what’s going through the minds of the folks who break “you go, I go” rule, while the rest of us sit patiently through a traffic waiting our turn?  WTF??????

I’m sure these folks also try to cut lines at DMV and have way more than 10 items at the express check out lines at the groceries.  Seriously, does it really take that much effort for us to be polite and behave like civil human beings????

A theory was proposed to me by a really smart co-worker on my “one-upper” situation.  Jeff suggested that I should become a “two-upper.”  Whatever the person says, I one-up them.  According to Jeff, this will shatter their world and make them crumble at the core of who they are.  I mean it’s a pretty fantastic idea but I don’t know if I am up for this kind of challenge.  WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, wouldn’t it just turn int a conversation between two “one-uppers”?????

random picture i took on friday by the west side highway.

what kind of license plate is small fry? i’d think small fry is one of those things you’d never want to be called, let alone advertise on your plate …

John and I pay $1200 for rent.  We have an entire floor of a house, backyard, garage, driveway, storage, porch, and washer/dryer in the unit.   And if I drive to work, it takes me 20 minutes door to door and mass-transit takes me 45 mins or so on a good day.  This may not mean much to most people, but this will be shocking figures/description for most people living in the tri-state area.

We would love to be here until we have enough saved to buy a house but our landlord just sold the property and we have been apt hunting for the past 3 weeks.  Not an easy process.  Although the rental market is good these days, we had such an incredible deal that it’s hard to beat such figures.

But here’s something couple of shocking things that we realized while apt hunting.  First of all, we are not able to find these “out-of-this” world deals that everyone is talking about.  But more shockingly, we are finding out that ALL landlords just LOVE us.  Mind you, some of them are willing to overlook the fact that we have FOUR cats that will be sharing the apt with us, even when the actual ad had said “NO PETS”.  We were experiencing the “positive” side of racial profiling. 

Yes, it’s a good thing for us, but we were also able to sort of grasp what it would be like not to be Asian, not to look yuppy, and not to speak English fluently.  This is the reality.  We are aware, but also the lack of progress we have made is a bit daunting.

read an article on cnn (you’ll learn most of my info comes from there). apparently PETA asked the pet shop boys to change their name. change their name to the rescue shelter boys. ……

i know it’s for a good cause but .. the rescue shelter boys? really? they’ve been together for over 20 years. and now you’re going to ask them to change their name? i don’t know about that one …

read the article here. and watch a music video of one of their more popular songs..

 

so read an article about this turkish anchor who painted his face black to report on obama. i’m not sure how i feel about it. i can’t tell if it’s meant to be offensive or flattering. you judge..

i took this picture a couple of months ago by the holland tunnel entrance downtown nyc. no words necessary. except.. WHERE’S MY FUCKING BAILOUT?!

bailout

so this is my first real job. well, my first real career job. and so i’m still learning the ropes of the “real world”. what to do, what not to do, what to say, what not to say. etc. etc. sometimes i really have to bite my tongue. i am at the bottom of the totem pole and thus have no right in saying some of the things i want to say.

but sometimes, ohhh sometimes. i just want to say it. it’s never towards me; but i see the interaction and i just want to put someone in place. ooh, i could see it now. it would be glorious. 

 

…then i’ll take that two month euro trip i always wanted to take.

so for a while now, since fall of 2008, i’ve tried to stay away from viewing the news. and when i say news, i mean more financial news (i’m a nyu stern grad, what can i say? i’ve been bred to only read financial news) than anything. you know, it was depressing to hear how our economy’s shit and it’s only going to get worse. there was no good news. the news was how the economy was still as bad as it was the day before. that’s not news. tell me something i don’t know. news is if by some chance, a politician andor corporation did something right. or if our economy’s actually getting better.

so i’ve boycotted it for a while. but i still need to be somewhat caught up in what’s going on in the world. so i frequent cnn.com a lot when i need a break from what i’m doing at work or whatev. read a quick article or two. but i feel like i have to boycott news altogether. is it me or has there been A LOT of homicides, suicides, etc. today, there were reports that three cops died in pittsburgh. some guy shot two in the head. and recently, there was a guy in binghamton who killed 13 people and then killed himself. the saddest news is when people kill their family members. today, there was a story about a guy who found his wife with another guy. after an argument, he killed his 5 children and then killed himself. there was a guy who killed his 5 children, wife and himself after he and his wife found out they were being fired from work. there was another guy who decapitated his baby sister in front of a cop. and it goes on and on. it’s depressing as shit. 

i’m not sure if it’s because of the state of the economy? everyone’s on edge more? i know most aren’t probably economy related. but damn. wtf. i wish there were some really uplifting stories. to give us and the world some hope about our future. and i know these stories have to be reported. we have to learn from these tragedies. but it’s just too much sometimes. so until i hear more uplifting stories, i’m boycotting news in general. well, try to at least.

a couple of weeks ago, i was listening to the wait wait… don’t tell me!”  podcast (which btw, is hilarious. i recommend checking it out) and they were talking about a blog. an important one.

this blog created for those in peril. in danger. emotionally wounded. these people are STRUGGLING! we must feel for them. who am i talking about? 

THOSE DATING BANKERS. …aka. DABAs. yes. they no longer can afford to hit the spa everyday. no more tiffanys jewelery every week. OH THE INJUSTICE!

yeah .. check it out. it’s kind of hilarious. the ridiculousness of it all.

www.dabagirls.com

have you heard of this new virus? conficker? i don’t know where i’ve been but i just heard about it today. someone at work sent an email. i initially thought he was playing some april fools joke. then a couple of other people commented on it saying they saw it on the news and whatnot. being paranoid me, i thought they were all in on the joke. turns out it’s ferreal. apparently, there’s a $250,000 reward to find the guy who did it. i’m doing a risk/reward assessment whether or not it’s worth possibly getting fired to try to find this person.

 

 

new mac commercial slogan:

we don’t get viruses like pcs

Okay, I’ve been seeing this commercial for years now but found the OG version of it from 1986.  I think it’s the same people on the commercial.  Seriously,  there isn’t that much difference between the 2 commercial. 

I’m just glad someone else thought these commercials were entertaining enough to put on youtube….

PRICE IS RIGHT! ‘Nuff said right? Who doesn’t remember watching Price is Right during their summer vacation? Who didn’t yell at the TV screen at a contestant who bid ridiculously low/high amounts? I know I did!

So there’s a certain type of contestant on the show that probably bugs me more than the One-Uppers of my life. Okay, you’re right, this doesn’t even come close but it’s still worth mentioning. I hate the contestants who bid just $1 more than the previous contestant when guessing the price of an item at the beginning of the show. That’s one of the shadddddiest thing you could do on this show IMO. Seriously, you know exactly the kind of person I’m talking about here! These are the people who try to merge at the latest moment possible into your lane that you’ve been patiently inching forward in. These are the people who have 15 items on their baskets for the “10 Items or Less” line at the groceries. These are the people who “CC’ unnecessary people in their emails just to make you look bad or make themselves look good, especially at work….

doll_small2

So I learn alot of things from the TV shows that I watch and the radio shows that I listen to.  One of the shows that I do get to DVR and watch them on a rainy day is CBS Morning Show on Sunday mornings. 

Couple of weeks back, they featured this new up and coming artist who started out in the streets of Jersey City as a graffiti artist named .  Apparently he has become the next big thing in the art world.  I remember seeing some of his work in random places and thinking “What the?”  And apparently celebrities are eating his stuff up and paying tons of money for it (ie Kanye West).  Maybe I’m just not sophisticated enough to appreciate his work or maybe this is just all bologna….

 

Okay, we ALL have these people in our lives.  I strive everyday NOT to be like these people.  The “one-uppers!”  I can’t even begin to express how much I do not like having these people in my life.  I should really be more accepting of their flaws but it’s totally pain in the butt to interact or have a conversation with these people.  I have one in particular.  Let’s call her “Karen”. 

 

Karen was my first true, face to face, encounter with this kind.  But since she entered into my life.  It hasn’t been the same.  And I don’t mean in a good way.  Literally EVERY conversation, EVERY email has a “one-upper” tone.   I am beginning to get really irritated by her presence in my life and trying to figure out how to decrease her presence in my life.  I may have to move to a different state, change names, leave my job and learn a new language but it may actually be worth it at the end….

so somewhere in history, someone coined thirsty thursday. most likely a college kid because let’s be for real, who’s had a friday class? and if you did? who actually went? (i had one in freshman year. yeah, grades weren’t so good for that class) the weekend pretty much started thursday after your last class. then you swear off alcohol for the rest of your life only to be drinking again several hours later. repeat until monday comes (when you realize you’re late for class).

nyu, here i come! thirsty thursday! let’s hope i don’t end up like this kid. ten bucks says this kid doesn’t remember a thing? anybody? anyone? no? ok.

 

this is really old. but a friend of mine sent this link to me a while ago: rock god
freddie mercury, i can see. i don’t know if he’s my #1 but he definitely rocked out hard. definitely top 10 worthy. 
elvis presley is definitely a rock god. a different rock god compared to others but a rock god during his times. 
then there’s jon bon jovi. JON BON JOVI?!! what the eff? how is this guy above jimi hendrix? i’d even put otis redding above him. otis redding rocked out during shows. no offense to all those worldwide jon bon jovi fans but seriously. come on. i think after the superbowl halftime show, bruce springsteen definitely should be up there. did anyone see his knee slide?
if bon jovi’s up there, i’m not sure how this rock god’s definitely not up there.

tdy-090204-cast-snuggie1

Seriously…. what is this world coming to? Why am I hearing about so much about these “snuggies” everywhere I turn and who are the crazies that are actually spending money on this stuff???? I don’t want to have images of people sitting in their living rooms looking like monks. But this morning on TODAY show, BAM! I’m all about function over asthetics but this is just a bit nutty….

So the other night, I was hanging out with a friend until the weeeeee hours of the morning (sorry guy). We’re watching tv and whatnot and he starts telling me how at some point (maybe 3am or something like that), an hour long program that sells knives comes on. An hour long program that sells knives at 3am EST.

He proceeds to tell me all types of knives that they sell like pocket knives, hunter knives, some Japanese swords, and they even sell you sets of 160 knives. They come in all sorts of sizes, colors, grips, cases, etc. etc.

I know, ridiculous. For two reasons:
1. Why is there an HOUR LONG knife show?
2. Why does he know all this stuff about an HOUR LONG knife show?

So time comes, and of course, there’s the program. And of course, I demand we watch the program (What? How can you not watch it now?) So we’re watching and of course the show is exactly how he explained it would be. EXCEPT it’s a lot more ridiculous.

First, imagine it being like an HSN segment except REALLY REALLY poor quality. I’m talking, the producer of the show found a video camera he bought in the 90s and thought, “awesome, I’m ready to make a show.”

Second, there are a RIDICULOUS amount of knives that are shown on that show. A ridiculous amount – which will be explained in the next point. Although this probably explains why the show’s using such a shiesty camera – they spent all their money buying knives.

Third, you only have 1 minute (maybe 2? I’m pretty sure it was 1) to call and purchase the item. And the order number isn’t simple. It’s like C302018i9a;h;aweigh;oi104y102y[. So imagine how many knives they went through. Yeah, a buttload. We actually called. It took about 50 seconds to get to an operator.

Fourth, in the background, the phones are ringing off the hook. I mean, non-stop as if this was some PBS telethon special with Kanye West, Bon Jovi (apparently England’s #3 Rock God), and other celebrities. Come on. It’s 3am. I know it isn’t live but seriously. That many people are buying knives right now? that many?

All in all, I’d say it’s a definite must see. At least once. I think the ridiculousness of the program itself is entertaining. And if you’re hanging out with my friend, a definite definite must watch. Because he apparently knows A LOT about knives.
