Chayota or Chaota


Chayota or Chaota: http://bit.ly/bkNWRX The unfortunate conflation of Chaos and Toyota (Motors)...The Japanese art of suicide by automobile...  With regards to the current media circus surrounding Toyota and its record number of (mainly safety-related) recalls and Congressional Hearings with Henry Waxman and Akio Toyoda and tearful testimonies such as that of Rhonda Smith...and Oy Vey!  Not to mention that the Toyota Scientific and Engineering and Maintenance Departments being in total chaos - every garage and every bay and every laboratory available is probably in 24/7 use right now ripping the sh*t out of the millions of vehicles in question.  *Japanese engineers and other employees once famous for being overworked probably now seriously contemplating seppuku during this massive fiasco.  Chaos.

Actually, speaking from experience from the working side of American automotive companies, we have genuine sympathy and empathy for the hell that the poor b*st*rds at Toyota are going through right now as we witness and write about this.  If we could, we'd be working right there with them, side-by-side.  It is just that awful. This is the Haiti and Tsunami 2004 of industry combined...even worse, figuratively of course...  Well, at least James Lentz and his colleagues haven't taken to leaping out of the highest floor of the Toyota HQ - at least not just yet...

*Actually, we're going to speculate on the real root cause of this issue - the layoff or non-hiring of the necessary engineers and scientists...sorry to say...

Mojobama?



The unfortunate conflation of Mojo and Obama. Did one of these GOpr*cks say our Main Man lost his Mojo? Oh no they dinna! Once you go Barack, you never go back! The last man to admit losing his Mojo wasn’t even American and fictional – too boot (pun intended) – Austin Powers. Did Tiger admit losing his Mojo? Uh-Uh. Don’t think so…

Room 237 Redux or Room 237 Hit


Room 237 Redux or Room 237 Hit: From a room number in the Rotana Hotel (Dubai) and the Overlook Hotel we found disturbing similarities of life-almost-imitating-art in the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhoub.  Ridiculous and chilling all at the same time, we found echoes from The Shining, the hilarious Oktoberfest hit scene in The Pink Panther Strikes Again, The Keystone Cops and numerous episodes of Monty Python's Flying Circus.  Were these killers all fans?

Paradix or Dickundrum


Image licensed under Creative Commons by Michael Licht, NotionsCapital.com

Paradix or Dickundrum: The unfortunate conflations of Dick Cheney with paradox and conundrum.  Any politico apparently openly confessing to the application of extrajudicial and (therefore) illogical measures to any alleged war criminal or terrorist or other similar persons.  The obvious corollary being that application of same disproves the very argument presented by said proponent by virtue of implication of similar war crimes or other extrajudicial measure.  QED.

Best Meg Episode Ever!


Prison tattoo machine image licensed under Creative Commons by Stan7826
Best Meg Episode Ever!: OK, OK, we're a bit concerned on this one - and the term is an obvious reference to the Simpson's Comic Book Store Character Guy ("Jeff Albertson") - apologies for the cross-cultural reference. Which is another cross-cultural reference as Peter decides to join the visiting Rodeo (complete with human hog-tieing and branding!...ugh...), Meg falls in love with her convict pen-pal and eventually becomes a con/ex-con herself with violently hilarious consequences. Once released from prison (complete with 'tats'), Meg automatically makes everyone in the Griffin household her "b*tch". To which Stewie meekly responds in the affirmative. At various points in this over-the-top nauseating narrative, Meg proceeds to assault (off-camera) her own father in the shower with a loofah, assalts her mother's senses by keeping a 'poop bucket' in her bedroom ...("this way I don't have to get up and go to the bathroom all the time"...) and assaults her bete noir Connie d'Amico and her entire clique with a homemade weapon - a sack of (full) soda pop cans and then delivers the coup d'grace to Connie - a bite-the-tongue-off-kiss ala Midnight Express. Well, being fans of Bronson, we could see the sack-full-of-cans-cum-homemade-weapon assault coming - ("may I have two rolls of quarters please?"). And then the gun violence kicks in... At the climax, Brian turns Meg with his delightfully sweet and sappy article which he wrote for Teen People(?). How do they morph comedy into such horrific violence and still manage to stay on the air? Oh, that's right...Fox...

Not to be missed: The Nascar In China in joke...excellent poor taste.
