About Yesterday

So who all watched the Super Bowl last night? One...two...three...Okay, all of you. Something I noticed while watching the game, the commercials and the Halftime Show. People clearly don't know the definition of "good" or "memorable." Most of the commercials were decent. The commercials are not memorable unless they feature something or someone who surprised you. The Clint Eastwood/Chrysler commercial seems to have hit it big but isn't anyone else getting tired of the car companies reminding people of the bailouts they had to take? (Except for Ford). The game was boring until the second half--or more accurately, the fourth quarter. And the Halftime Show featuring Madonna, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO, Cee Lo Green and M.I.A. was just a ladder rung above boring. Ever since the Justin Timberlake/Janet Jackson "wardrobe malfunction" the NFL has tried to get Halftime shows that are generic and non-controversial. Madonna used to be one of the most controversial people in music which shows you how irrelevant she has become since the 1990s.

Don't get me wrong, when I am her age, I hope I can still move like that but if you wanted a really good Halftime show I would've suggested Lady Gaga. She can put on a show, she can do everything Madonna can do but better because she's younger. And I don't even really like Lady Gaga. But the reason she won't be asked to be on the Super Bowl is because she has the potential to be controversial. Her songs and visual effects could be used to promote homosexuality or other things that sports fans just don't want to see on their football field. So we viewers are stuck with boring Halftime shows like Paul McCartney, Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, The Black-Eyed Peas and Madonna. And those are the performers every year since Janet Jackson in 2004. Are these shows memorable aside from BEP being just awful?

Finally, Brutus is fired. It's about time. Brutus has been failing at every little thing for far too long. Now he can get that job at McDerp's which is really the only thing he's qualified for.

Wait a damn minute! Brutus is back at work? Clearly firings by Veeblefester are only temporary. Why get a smartphone that tells you where to go and what to do when you can just get married? Amiright, men? Huh, huh? Burn.
