Howard Stern amazes Andy a lot, mostly with his interviewing skills, but this time Howard reminded Andy just how amazing technology is as Andy was able to watch Howard’s Birthday Bash in big-screen glory from the comfort of his couch. It’s a great time to be alive, at least so things Andy.
Andy is a sucker for a good donut, and if it’s got maple and bacon involved he’s even more of a sucker. Even more tempting can be a donut called a “Fat Elvis,” but don’t ask him if he needs any coffee because he brings his own. He wonders if you bring your own, or stop on the way to work.
There’s a new World’s Record for tallest water slide and it’s right here in the good ol’ United States. To plunge down something taller than Niagara Falls or The Statue of Liberty head to the Schlittergahn Water Park in Kansas City, Kansas, and ride Verruckt. Funny names, scary ride, but would you go down it? Andy wonders.
Andy has come to realize that the folks at Facebook are geniuses when it comes to rolling out a new look to the timeline, and plays out a couple of scenarios starring Jim, Joe, Mable, Dorothy, and Earl. Yes, you may hate the new look, but you’ll stick around, or probably be back.
Andy thinks he might have to move because he has some pretty lame app suggestions on his “Near Me” feature on his iPhone, well, except for the suggestion for the Steve Dahl Network. He wonders, though, if you even know this feature is on your iPhone, or if you have one.
Sure, a guy can dream, can’t he, and hope that the Comcast / Time Warner merger will result in a company that cares, but Funny or Die put out a video of how we probably think Comcast really feels about us. What choice do we have?
The Dude on the Right received an email and has seen a lot of post-sharing on Facebook lately about how “Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list…”. He tends to do his due-diligence and has found out the truth about this urban legend, and although he’s getting tired of telling people the stuff they are sharing is wrong, now he is just wondering if people actually think Warren Buffet would send out a chain email. It’s his Daily Plight.
The Dude on the Right admits his admiration for girl pop music, and yes, even admits to liking some Miley Cyrus. Originally a fan of her song “Wrecking Ball” (not to be ever confused with the Bruce Springsteen song by the same name), he fears the song has now been ruined by his watching of the music video on Vevo, complete with Miley sticking out her tongue a lot and prancing around naked. He’s also concerned she may also ruin Saturday Night Live for him when she hosts and sings on it this weekend. His advice is really for Miley to stop sticking out her tongue, but in the process plights if a video has ruined a song for you.
The Dude on the Right almost went the entire Labor Day Weekend without firing up the grill, which would have almost been as much of a travesty as not having one last summer-time corn dog. Happily he managed to accomplish both, but plights about the success of your end of summer barbecue.
The Dude on the Right tried to watch the MTV VMA’s online as he wasn’t near a cable feed. He figures that either MTV screwed up their feed and messed up by showing feeds of things like the audience and Stage Manager, or they did a great job at hoodwinking every news outlet into writing stories saying MTV was streaming the VMA’s online, when actually they were only streaming crappy views no one wanted to watch. The Dude plights wondering who else tried to watch the VMA’s online and was pissed.
