Well, it could have been worse. He could have just car-jacked the poor woman. Maybe he brought her flowers or something. Then again, those flowers would have probably been in the car he stole.

It’s cases like these where I’m always curious to hear what kind of defense will be brought up in court.

Police say a first date went from bad to worse when a man skipped out on the restaurant bill, then stole his date’s car.

Police say 23-year-old Terrance Dejuan McCoy had dinner with a woman April 24 at Buffalo Wild Wings in the Detroit suburb of Ferndale. The woman says the two met a week earlier at a Detroit casino and she knew McCoy only as “Chris.”

The woman told police that McCoy said he left his wallet in her car and asked for keys. He then sped away in the 2000 Chevrolet Impala.

The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak reports that police identified McCoy by a photo he’d sent to the woman’s cellphone, and his phone number.

McCoy is charged with unlawfully taking the car, a five-year felony. He waived a preliminary exam and was bound over for trial Thursday.

99 Memories

So this guy just died.

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy was laid to rest Saturday night alongside slain brothers John and Robert on hallowed ground at Arlington National Cemetery, celebrated for “the dream he kept alive” across the decades since their deaths.

I’m not going to mince words. I despised this piece of shit. However, I’m not going to say any more. If this would have happened 10 years ago I probably would have had a few more comments, a few Mary Jo jokes, a few “last call” one-liners. But what’s the point?

What I will do however is reprint a fun little sing-along dealing with Uncle Ted from several years ago that a group of us did on a now-defunct message board. There are some inside jokes and a number of dated references but I’m sure you can figure most of it out. It ain’t pretty. Oh who am I kidding, there are a TON of dated references — particularly from 1969.

And Now A Word From Our Sponsors

with 2 comments

So I recently saw a new addition to the FreeCreditReport.com family of television ads. I’ve said before … at the other place I used to write at … that I liked this ad campaign. Have no desire to actually get the actual product these commercials are pimping, but whatever.

*Shakes head.* They should have quit while they were ahead.

But this got me thinking. What ad campaigns have attracted my attention over the last few years? Hey, sounds like a great way to waste time typing up another entry. Here’s my Top 5 list of favorite television ad campaigns from the last few years. Please note I’m not talking about individual commercials. I’m referring to a series of them. In no particular order, here we go:

1) FreeCreditReport.com. I can see how someone could HATE these ads. However, I think they’re generally well done. They’re different enough to stand out from each other, but there’s enough in-jokes with each one that entertains me enough not to change the channel. Here are some the ads which I liked:

2) Taco Bell’s Think Outside The Bun. Here’s another batch of ads that have been around a lot longer than they should have, but when this campaign first started I LOVED the “think outside the bun” line. Hmpf. Can’t find any of the older ads on Youtube. Not looking really hard, but oh well. I’m sure you’ve seen these.

3) T Mobile’s Dwayne Wade/Charles Barkley ads. I like Barkley. Wade seems like a nice enough person. Put the two of them together and you have a pretty effective chemistry. This series of ads has always entertained me, but my favorite one is when Dwight Howard was thrown into the mix. “Come on Dwight. Get some rebounds,” still gets a laugh out of me.

2) Burger King’s King. Some time ago Burger King began to get much better with its television ads, but when they brought back that King guy I REALLY began to enjoy the ads. I was especially partial to the Sir-Mix-A-Lot parody pimping kids meals.

1) So I was starting to run out of ideas to round out this list. One thought that came to mind was ESPN’s “This is SportsCenter” commercials, where ESPN employees interacted with athletes in a variety of ways. However, one thing that kept me from listing these ads was that there really was no prevailing cast of characters. Each time the ads featured different people. I gave the nod to another series of ESPN commercials from the College Football Gameday Crew. Meh, can’t find an ad from this batch. Wow, this list had quite the under-whelming sendoff.

Oh what the hell, here’s another ad I like. I didn’t list this because it’s just a single ad. And no I didn’t pick this because it features someone from the Steelers.
