Ben & Jerry’s: The Presidential Series

You probably already saw this in a forward somewhere, but it’s just too clever to not post.  And I love wordplay..

Ben and Jerry created “Yes Pecan!” ice cream flavor for Obama.

Then they asked people to fill in the blank to the following:
For George W. Ben and Jerry created “_________.”

Bankers vs. Consultants from the Leveraged Sellout

This video is just too hysterical:
Damn It Feels Good To Be A Banker — A Wall Street Musical

Pay close attention to the lyrics, including the random synthesized background commentary.   One of my favorite lines: “… you get into the joint, but you still can’t buy bottles with Starwood points.”  AHHHH Hahahahahaaa!  I also highly recommend the blog and the book.

Don’t blame us for Sanjaya!

Sanjaya, American Idol’s latest boy wonder (or boy blunder), continues to make the cut despite harsh criticism from the judges and a clear lack of talent. Apparently, pop-culturists the world over would like to know… who is voting for Sanjaya?

Some contend that it’s the throngs of teeny-boppers melting over his unfading smile and mickey mouse voice. Many hold Howard Stern responsible for urging his fans to vote for Sanjaya. Others argue that it’s the Indian diaspora voting for one of their own. (Although he seems like a very nice boy, I personally think we Indians would not choose Sanjaya as a poster-boy for the race… In fact I would ask for a seat at the table in Dave Chappelle’s racial draft: “White people, we’ll give you Deepak Chopra and Sanjaya if you give us Norah Jones.”) Anyway, I started this post when I came across this front-page MSNBC story exonerating the call center workers in India: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17964405/from/RS.3/

Woo-hoo!

I’d love to see a pie-chart approximating Sanjaya’s voting fan-base by demographic and location… And for those contemplating whether a victorious Sanjaya will be the death of American Idol, I am assuming that his run on AI is only boosting revenues in the short-term – I for one definitely didn’t tune in much before this season. And maybe Sanjaya’s rise to stardom is well-deserved… While I don’t see him winning any best supporting actor nominations, he sort of is poor brown man’s Keanu Reeves.
