Bullet Sunday 268

Posted on Sunday, February 12th, 2012

Dave!Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen... Bullet Sunday starts... NOW!

   
• Magic? It used to be that whenever I saw some sports figure scream "I'M GOING TO DISNEYLAND!" after a big victory, I'd scream back "WHORE!" I mean, it's such an obvious attempt to score Disney ad money. But the more I think about it, what better way could there be to celebrate than to have a party with Mickey Mouse at the most magical place on earth?

Eli Manning and Mickey Mouse

And then I see the happy photos of Eli Manning at Disneyland after his Super Bowl win and know that I would totally celebrate all my most important victories there. Of course, should I become victorious at conquering the earth, I'll own Disneyland, but still...

   
• Restart? I'm not a very emotional person. Which is why my nearly being driven to tears by a frickin' Chipotle commercial was about the most shocking and disturbing thing that could have happened to me while watching the Grammys. So called "factory farming" of animals is about the cruelest, most destructive, and unhealthy way to create "food" you could think of. To have somebody step up and say "enough" is so very encouraging...

There's no Chipotle anywhere near me but, if there were, I would patronize the hell out of that restaurant.

   
• Shop? Speaking of patronizing a worthy business... I'm going to have to start shopping at my local JC Pennys. How awesome that they didn't cave to pressure from the homophobic hate group "One Million Moms" and fire Ellen DeGeneres as their new spokesperson...

And to the bigoted asshats at "One Million Moms"... go fuck yourselves. You obviously all need a good fucking if your idea of "values" is to spend your time attacking somebody as generous, inspiring, and remarkable as Ellen DeGeneres. And may your God have mercy on any of your children who happen to be gay. Because if they're not going to get your love and support, being able to turn on the television and see somebody like Ellen may be all they have.

   
• Krave? After hearing about "Krave," the breakfast cereal filled with chocolate candy, I simply had to try it. How could I not? It's cereal. WITH CHOCOLATE CANDY INSIDE!!

KRAVE is SO gross!

The verdict? Awful. Just awful. Both the "Chocolate" and "Double Chocolate" varieties taste like chemical waste. The texture is bizarre (in a bad way) as well. I can't fathom why anybody would eat this when they could just sprinkle M&Ms over a bowl of Golden Grahams?

   
• Confusion? I'm a Mr. Potato Head fan. I'm a massively huge Batman fan. But I honestly don't know what to make of this...

Batman Mr. Potato Head

Why? It doesn't look like Batman or Mr. Potato Head. I'm not saying it's a bad concept for a toy... but surely they could have just dressed Mr. Potato Head as Batman instead of coming up with this hunk of plastic monstrosity.

   
• Protest? It seems like only yesterday I was walking through Syntagma Square in central Athens, Greece (actually it was five years ago). Despite a somewhat disappointing visit to the Hard Rock Cafe there, I very much enjoyed my visit to the city. Which is why I am very upset to see it erupt in flames...

I'm all for the right of free protest when you disagree with something, but this is horrific. Do the people who own the shops and cafes getting firebombed deserve this? And while I admit that I don't know if the police crack-downs have been overly-violent, I have to question whether firebombing them could ever be a justifiable act. Greece is in serious trouble... to see violence drive it even further to the brink is profoundly sad. Come together, people... I very much want to visit your country again one day.

   
And now... back to the Grammys...

    Destroying private property to protest a government’s decision is idiotic and selfish.

  2. Greg says:

    I’d never seen that Chipotle commercial. Good on them for making something socially conscious! Now as for the Grammys….hooray for Betty White!!! And, because I really like this group, hooray for TheCivil Wars!

  3. Kailyn says:

    You should demand a Chipotle for your area. They are so good. Also they have an app. Love breezing past the line at lunch time because my order is already waiting for me.

  4. Invader_Stu says:

    No. Mr Potato Head does not look like Batman there at all. He looks like he belongs in a scene from Pulp Fiction.

    “Bring out the Potato Head!”

  5. Ren says:

    One of my daughters snagged a box of Krave when we were grocery shopping last week. I went ahead and mixed some with my Peanut Butter Cheerios, and I was actually quite pleased with the result. Oh, I had some sliced banana in there as well, which probably improves the overall experience.

  6. Sybil Law says:

    Agreed. On everything. Except I can’t stand Chipotle, even though I liked the commercial.

  7. martymankins says:

    The Grammys were quite good this year.

    Anyone who is that hateful against someone who is gay needs to just continue to shop at Wal-Mart in their pj’s.

    Chipotle is a great place to eat. I go about once every 2 months for a burrito. I rather liked that ad as well. Very well done. And it had Willie.

  8. Faiqa says:

    I heard that Chipotle is owned by McDonald’s — I don’t know if that’s true, but if it is, it bodes well. For better or worse, the golden arches lead the way in terms of food consumption. This would be a plus.
    Also, if there is such a thing as reincarnation, I would like it be made known here that I would very much like to come back as the child of a gay couple and that I would very much like that gay couple to be Ellen Degeneres and Rachel Maddow.

  9. Sarah says:

    I’m not a fan of Chipotle but that was a great commercial! And it’s great to see JC Penny not backdown from those stupid “one million moms.”

  10. Poppy says:

    I am glad you finally saw the Krave light. It’s spelled with a K for a reason. Just like Klassy.

  11. the muskrat says:

    I missed the Chipotle commercial because of already switching over to “Walking Dead”! Am really glad you posted it, as I likely wouldn’t have seen it otherwise (realistically, the next time I watch a TV show will be the Oscars). What’s odd is that they’re owned by McDonald’s, though, who certainly does not seem to create food we’d consider to be healthy or in a manner that we’d consider humane, but if one of their subsidiaries is doing it, at least it’s a start. And for the record, I already eat their food and like it!

  12. I think it was awesome that JCPenny stood behind Ellen.

  13. I’m agree. I have a little Mr Potato Head Elvis. I prefer the big one. I would have loved a cloth cape for Batman Potato.

  14. dorkandiknowit says:

    I personally love Krave cereal. Toxic waste? The person who based it must not have a sweet tooth.
