April 13th-Brought to You By the Letter 'L'


Lemonade


  As God as my witness, I never knew that strawberries were used to make Pink Lemonade.  I thought they just used red food coloring.  Or the blood of a virgin or something.


Incidentally, I bet that fat kid will end up with moobies and his underwear pulled over his head in gym class one day.


THIS JUST IN!  
  It has come to my attention that sometimes it's just red food coloring which gives Pink Lemonade its flavor (damn Mrs. Penwasser and her Food Network!!).  Evidently, corporate shills frequently want to save a buck by opting out of using whole strawberries.  
  So, I predict Susie will take a bath if she goes for the "whole fruit" approach.


  But, since I may have given you BOGUS info, here's a BONUS 'L':


Larry Feinberg (aka Larry Fine)
Born-October 5, 1903
Died-January 24, 1975
    Of the original 3 Stooges, Larry was the only one who was NOT a Howard (the others were Moe, Curly, and Shemp.  Yeah, as if you didn't know).  Well, in the very beginning there was this stooge called Ted Healy.  Yeah, I never heard of him either.
    
    Whenever Moe would kid him about his hair, Larry would often reply, "Yeah, but have you looked in the mirror?"  Then, to Curly, "You've got no room to talk either, fat boy."
    
    Larry died in 1975 from a stroke.  And being hit in the head with a hammer and poked in the eyes too much.

    For those of us who loved the antics of the 3 Stooges, a new movie will be coming out this month.  Starring living people, of course.
    
   I wouldn't expect much.
I could be wrong...
but I gotta think this will suck.

Glad that Tony Soprano has found work, though.

  2. Im at a loss with this one.I see previews and it makes me want to puke then I see one and I giggle... Maybe it's old times flashing in my brain. I dont know. I probably won't see it till it's on tv or dvd or netflix. Not sure... Have a good weekend!

  3. @Ruth: I'll wait until it gets to TV, but I really think it will be dreadful. It's like that "Little Rascals" remake several years ago. Yeeeeshhh!!!!! And, isn't the guy who plays "Larry" the same guy who played "Jack" on "Will and Grace?"
    @MonkeyButt: I'm with you. I don't know if I'm just being a cranky "back in my day" kind of old fart (well, I'm generally that). No way I pay to go see it in the movies. Prediction: on DVD by the Memorial Day weekend (and I bet I'm being generous).
    Preview of coming attractions: Tomorrow's 'M' is for 'Moe.' More 3 Stooges history than you'd ever thought possible.

    1. Yes, that is Jack. I never watched "The Little Rascals" remake. My motto is " If I remember the original, don't watch the remake."

  5. Actually, so do I. It's so.....festive! Although, if they put "ass" in it, I prefer they not tell me.

  6. Tony as Curly! No freakin' way! My son and husband want to see this flick. What is it about you guys and The Three Stooges?

    Oh and uh, I never knew about the strawberry thing either.

    ReplyDelete
  7. @Nancy: If you don't laugh, you get whacked. I think it's all the hitting in the heads with hammers. Strawberries. Who knew?

  8. My daughter, 12, just came home from seeing it. She wasn't all that impressed, but again, she's 12...there were no sparkly vampires...

    No kidding...it's Tony???? I knew it was the dude from Will & Grace, but Tony...wow!

  9. We're taking my grandkids to see it next Wednesday. Jane Lynch is in it and Sophia V. from Modern family. I'm hoping it might be better than you think!

  10. The 6th degree today is . . . Peter Lorre to Kevin Bacon. If you complete this task, a micro-managing, Napoleanic, screaming ex-DESRON commander/congressman will tie you up in his 100 ft headset cord and demand more SSC helo support.

    1. Peter Lorre-Frankie Avalon-Ron Howard-Kevin Bacon.
      Peter Lorre was in Muscle Beach Party with Frankie Avalon who made a guest appearance on Happy Days with Ron Howard who directed Apollo 13 which also starred Kevin Bacon.
      By the way, that maniacal jackass ran for Pennsylvania Senator last year. It was an orgasmic experience to pull the lever (a euphemism, perhaps?) for his opponent. I would've voted for a bent shitcan rather than that asshat.
      "I want an S-3 and I want one NOW!!"
      Never forget.

  11. Funny, Simply Juice has a pink lemonade but it's with raspberry

  12. Well played Tony Soprano comment.

  13. @Eva: Jane Lynch...now she's pretty funny. And that Sophia lady cracks me up, too. But, mark my words: DVD by Memorial Day weekend (I should mark my calendar and get back to you here on Blogger if my prediction turns out to be true).
    @Adam: Better than prune, I suppose.
    @dbs: It wasn't personal, just business. Ooo, crap, I'm mixing up my gangsters again. I hate when that happens.
    @L: I'm kidding about Tony.....but now I just have to go check. Sparkly vampires....imagine if Moe latched onto Curly's neck instead of poking him in the eyes. Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.

  14. @L: It's actually Will Sasso. A Canadian (so he has that going for him), he was on MadTV for five seasons (question: I thought it was pretty good, but MadTV was on for five years? Wow. Who knew?)

  15. Leave my Tony Soprano out of this, I missed this series first (and up to the ninth re-run) around, and am only now geared up to slavishly primed to protect his fine reputation to the death..

    ReplyDelete
  16. No, no, I like Tony Soprano.
    If I know what's good for me.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yeah, those guys sound like the real thing, but I'll bet that joke about "her face rings a bell" is probably the only good line in the flick.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'll give it a go once it gets to TV (remember: DVD by Memorial Day), but I strongly suspect Hollywood has "deballed" any of the mayhem we loved about the 3 Stooges. Just like they turned Looney Tunes into suck-ass feel good moronic cartoons.

  19. Is it kind of weird that when I see a post from yourself and Bersecules that I get excited, drop whatever else I'm doing and take it in with preparation to have a good laugh that'll cheer myself up?

    I actually found this post pretty interesting though, when it comes to the realisation that strawberries are used in pink lemonade, I guess it's more of a strawlemonade than anything haha. I was also talking about the Three Stooges film with my brother this morning, we both find it weird but pretty cool at the same time that they're making a film of the Stooges.

  20. If there was an international award for the best closing line in a blog post ever. When combined with that photo of the three stars, "Glad that Tony Soprano has found work, though," would win hands down! That REALLY looks like him... I'm still laughing... Classic!

  21. @Pat: Great! Not only is Iran going to be hacked off at me, the Jersey mob is going to want to pay me a little visit.
    @Matthew: That makes me feel good, because I know the type of crap you're going through. That Bersercules is one funny guy, for sure. If you liked this, you may like tomorrow's 'M' post. It's about Moe. Sorry, 'C' has come and gone, so I can't do Curly. And, even though 'S' still has to play out, it won't be about 'Shemp.' Why? Because Shemp is for sucks.

  22. LOL you never now if the fat kid gets the right lemonade mix he could be safe.

    I am going to go with it will suck too!

    ReplyDelete
  23. He could grow up to be Jerry O'Connell, that fat kid on 'Stand By Me.'
    That it'll suck is a no-brainer.

  24. My husband is a big fan of the 3 stogges and wants to see the new movie not something that interests me in any way shape or form.............now pink lemonade I always thought they just added food colouring to make it pink

    ReplyDelete
  25. He does look a lot like Tony Soprano in that picture! Sometimes seeing movies with low expectations makes them all the sweeter. Like when you think you're gonna drink Kool-Aid, but the kids throw in some strawberries before they sneeze in it. Julie

  26. I do appreciate the 3 Stooges. It's classic comedy at its best.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Jo-Anne: That's what Mrs. Penwasser thought, too.
    @Julie: No kidding. Then I gotta think that 3 Stooges movie is going to be epic.
    @Anne: As much as I kid about it, their movie shorts (their cotton shorts, too, for all I know) were fantastic. Well, except the Shemps. More on that tomorrow.

  28. I always thought the cheap pink lemonade used dye, and the good stuff was made with raspberries.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Me, too, until I saw this commercial. I fear Susie's gonna take a bath on this one.

  30. CRAP!!! I told my husband this morning it was Tony and I was arrogant about it too...maybe he'll forget LMAO!
