Tuesday Assortment

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Jim and Tim were both studying philosophy in college. One day they decided to have lunch at a deli. When the waiter came over, Jim ordered himself a chicken sandwich and an egg salad sandwich. After the waiter left, Tim asked Jim, “Why did you order so much food?”
“It’s an experiment,” Jim said. “I wanted to see which comes first, the chicken or the egg.”
What actor has been “honored” more often than any other at Hollywood’s annual Golden Raspberry Awards, which poke fun at the worst in film?

Sylvester Stallone, with 30 Razzie nominations and 10 “wins.” In 2000, the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation named him the winner of a special Worst Actor of the Century award.
In 2006, Hungary’s Ministry of Economic Affairs and Transport hosted a contest to name a new cable bridge in Budapest. Voting took place online, so Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report pleaded with his viewers to get Hungary to name the bridge after him. In the end, Colbert garnered 17 million votes—14 million more than the 3 million votes for second-place finisher Miklós Zrínyi, a 17th-century Hungarian folk hero (and around 7 million more than the entire population of Hungary). Hungarian officials decided to ignore the results of the contest altogether and call it the Megyeri Bridge (combining the names of the districts the bridge connects).
Tax on one of the “free” cars Oprah gave away to her audience in 2004: $7,000.

Chicken-egg going into THE Joke File

Poor Stalone - he probably
cried all the way to the BANK !

Am not a regular Colbert viewer,
but have liked the ones I've seen.
But.. DUMB antic.
Still, who would have thought
so many dufuses would actually vote !!!

Winnning prizes:
HGTV has annual house contests.
