You Like-a Da Juice?
By now I'm sure you've heard the news: O.J. Simpson (not a Jew) will sit down with publisher and crazywoman Judith Regan for a two-part interview called "O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How It Happened" that'll air Nov. 27 and Nov. 29.
Someone's either feeling a little guilty about past crimes and acting out in a desperation to cathartically clear it from his brain or he's trying like the dickens to sell his new book and knows this'll do the trick. The cynic in me says it's the latter, but the kid in me likes the frosted side. Oh, sorry, I just slipped into a Frosted Mini-Wheats mersh without even knowing it.
There's not much to say about this interview that everyone's not already thinking themselves, but I believe Fox is onto something here and should leverage a franchise out of it:
Tom Cruise could do an "If I Blew Travolta, Here's How It Happened" show, Scott Peterson could do a "If I Made My Nagging Wife An Anchor, Here's How It Happened" interview, Roger Clemens could join McCarver for a "If I Threw That Bat At Piazza's Junk, Here's How It Happened," and I could finally sit down for my long overdue "If I Killed That Colored Homeless Dude, Here's How I Enjoyed It" segment.
Fox, it could work, gimme an EP credit and we're golden grahams. Who else would you like to see come clean like this? Let us know...
Slack Link of the Day: From the "Good God, Man, That's WAY Understating It" files, a new government study found that "About 1 percent of Web sites indexed by Google and Microsoft are sexually explicit." Wait, they're saying the Internets are only 1 percent porn? That's like saying only 1 percent of Red Sawx fans don't have a high school diploma. It's just way too low.
Slack Video of the Day: I updated yesterday's SNL post to include the actual Carpool Sketch video from this Saturday's show, but I'm guessing it'll be taken down shortly. So get on over there and watch it before NBC Universal gets all protective of their shiite.
Slack Song of the Day: Maybe this is a little too analrapist Tobias Funke of me, but I'm feeling like a Queen today...Oh, Tobias, you blowhard! Let's go with Don't Stop Me Now, Fat Bottomed Girls, and a big summer of 1992 favorite, Radio Ga Ga.
