    Dude, that's essentially a press release. A bunch of say-nothing bullshit. Not a scoop. And where, exactly, did he "respond" to Buzz Bissinger?

    The show was misconceived. It put Stephen A. in the position of being an interviewer/host, neither of which is his strength. He would have been much better in a show that somehow turned the PTI formula on its head, wherein he would have been allowed to be opinionated and interesting. Someone who is an interviewer/host ought to be, quite frankly, funnier. I wish him the best in whatever is next for him.

    Reruns of Fitness Beach would get double the numbers SAS did.

    A man and a dog walk into a bar and sit at the bar. Bartender asks, "What'll you have?" The dog says "I'll have a Budweiser and a bowl." The stunned bartender fills the order, then says to the man, "There'll be no charge for his beer, what'll you have?"

    The dog says, "He can't talk. Give him a Michelob."

    At closing time, the bartender says, "I'll give you $5,000 for that dog."

    The dog says, "I'm a ventriloquist and I need him when we're on stage."

    I sense from your remarks that you are the board's resident dickhead. Keep up the good work.

    Since Ike has only one post, your powers of observation do not seem especially keen.

    A blind man walks into the bar with his dog, starts swinging the dog by the tail. Bartender says, "What the hell are you doing?" Blind man says, "Taking a look around."
  12. I was going to post something to that effect, but given the fact that I only have 60 posts myself, I decided to exercise some restraint. Glad someone noticed, though.
