Isaiah Washington, Geico Caveman, and whatever else

This whole Isaiah Washington thing is so stupid. If you don't know what I'm talking about, he is one of the actors on Grey's Anatomy that called another actor a 'faggot.' There are online petitions to fire the guy. Finally, someone came up with a DONT fire him petition. The KEEP I.W.'s JOB petition only has like 72 sigs at the time of this writing. I don't really care where you fall on the whole gay/straight thing. Frankly, I don't see why people feel the NEED to 'come out' in the first place. Who cares if you're gay, straight, neither or both. What or who you have sex with is your business, so keep it to yourself. Yeah, I know, some people say, "But it was derogatory..." Depends on your own personal viewpoint. Frankly, I think the whole thing could have been dealt with privately if the other guy hadn't been so whiny abut the whole thing.. "Mommy, Isaiah called me a bad name..." Grow up. Deal with things like this directly with the person that hurt you, don't be a baby about it.


I don't know about you, but I think the Geico commercials featuring the whining caveman are stupid. Why would a company create a commercial and character that make fun of their own company? I mean, the goofy gecko was bad enough, but to go so far overboard with the world's longest, dumbest "cover your butt" ad campaign wore out its welcome after the first showing... Please, Geico, hire a new creative team. Really....


Have you seen the new Orville Reddenbacher commercial? They got someone to wear an Orville suit to make it look like the old guy is doing the commercial... He died in like 1997. The commercial looks stupid, fake, and is so contrived it comes off as...well, kinda scary.... Really... I mean, the old man suit they used for the Six Flags commercials was surreal enough... Ya know, now that I think of it, I'm pretty sure they're using the same outfit.... Hmmm.....


Welp, guess that's all for now folks.... :-) Thanks for dropping by... You never know what'll pop in my head next....
