This morning as I was walking through town, I spotted a man and a woman in the middle of a bitter argument. I could hear them yelling a block away, and there was much hand-waving and stomping of feet while they screamed. As I got closer, the reason for the ruckus was soon apparent.
It was over their mobile phone bill.
Apparently they went over their minutes allotment, and she was being blamed for it all.
"WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS ON THE PHONE? WHO ARE YOU CALLING?" "YOU'RE THE ONE CALLING ME EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY! EVER THINK THIS MIGHT BE YOUR FAULT??"
"WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS ON THE PHONE? WHO ARE YOU CALLING?"
"YOU'RE THE ONE CALLING ME EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY! EVER THINK THIS MIGHT BE YOUR FAULT??"
I wanted to stop and ask why they didn't have a plan that allowed unlimited calling on a shared plan, but decided against it. Getting involved in a domestic dispute where roaming charges are involved can be fatal.
Who'da thunk that a phone bill could be so entertaining?
Last night there was yet another brilliant cameo by Betty White... this time on Ugly Betty. What made it so cool was that Betty was playing herself (or, to be more accurate, and exaggerated version of herself) which was sweet...
Betty White: "I'll be fine. I did lose a lot of blood, but it was my own fault. I stopped to sign a few autographs and almost bled out on the sidewalk."
Wilhelmina Slater: "Well, that's why you're beloved... you're loyal to your fans."
Betty White: "Oh, well, I adore them. Except for the few sickos who write lesbian fan fiction about me and Bea Arthur."
And my personal favorite...
Betty White: "Oh terrific, I'm going on TV with whore eyes!"
I maintain that Betty White should guest-star on all television programs. Her appearing on Heroes and Lost would be about the only thing that could get me to start watching those shows again.
Besides, Betty could use the work since all her Golden Girls money was wasted away on nickel slots.
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
Betty White is a comedy machine. LOVED it. (And Ugly Betty)
I’m glad you enjoyed BW’s appearance. I figured you would. I really got a kick out of it too. She’s been great in all the recent guest spots I’ve seen.
Never was much of a GG fan (though I hope she’s still getting residuals for it since it airs every night), but thinking of her character on Mary Tyler Moore still makes me laugh.
How about Betty White on Pushing Daisies??
I am not really there with you on the Betty White obsession, but I am all for wrinkly sex… so knock yourself out 🙂
My wife signed up for e-billing with our cell/cable/internet provider. Then she lost the password. I’ve tried to reset that password, and the system reports the reset as successful, but it isn’t. Now, I know I could spend the hour on hold trying to talk to a real person to get this cleared up, but somehow that investment of time has not seemed worth it- despite the $285 monthly bills… What’s on those bills? Nobody knows….
I miss Betty on Boston Legal. Still, the 4th season is amazing with a lower case a, but it deserves a capital a—an A if you will.
She is so outrageously awesome!
Hey – if you know of an unlimited share talk plan… please let me know ASAP!!
Our cell plan from Iowa is up in February and we can’t find anything that compares down here!
How about Betty on Heroes as an older hero with superspeed? That could be amazing.
That “whore eyes” line was one of the best things about Ugly Betty this week!
What makes it all the funnier is that in her late career stuff she’s been blowing all her early career googy-goody image stuff out of the water, and having the time of her life doing it. A great lady.
Betty is going to be on Betty?! Finally a reason to keep watching! (AM having issues with this season at the moment… don’t know why (Probably something to do with bloody Channel 4 and then monkeying around with the schedule) to do with, it’s always entertaining when I watch)
I’d like to see her on Battlestar Galactica. I just rented ‘RAZOR’ from blockbuster, so if she’s in it, don’t spoil it for me!
Admiral Adama: We cannot jeopardize the safety of this fleet with leaks of confidential information.
Betty White: Oh yes, I know. That’s why I bled out secrets from that cylon bitch yesterday, and now I can let everyone know why they’re so religious. You see, it all started when …
[Adama is extremely upset]
[another Betty White walks in]
… you see, Adama, I’m the top Cylon. I’m God.
the whore eyes line was SO funny!
Did you know that Betty does a voice for the preschoolers show Higglytown Heroes? She’s someone’s grandmother and gets to be the hero now and then. Every time her voice comes on I think of you, Dave.
A great thing about Ugly Betty is the unique blend of stars they bring in there…actors and actresses on screen together that you’d never think of pairing.
Vanessa Williams in a cat fight with Betty White?? Only one show can pull that off!
She was brilliant on that episode.
