I need someone to set a pick for me at the free-throw line of life

Never going out of style… from 1974:

Song :: Basketball Jones by Cheech and Chong w/ George Harrison (guitar) & Michelle "Mama" Phillips (backing vox)
Video :: Basketball Jones by Cheech and Chong

Best observation of Obama’s Feb 23 address to Congress (Scott Feschuk):
9:44 “This is America - we don’t do what’s easy, we do what’s necessary to move this country forward.” Dear Mr. President: Your nation is home to a company that manufactures frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and markets them by claiming that their product “removes all the hassle” from making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. As though people previously seeking such a sandwich would first have had to toil for hours in the jelly mines. And people actually buy this product. Believe me, sir: sometimes your country does what’s easy.

Did you see the Daily Show sketch where they introduced baconnaise? Bacon included in mayonnaise for those heart attack wannabes who are too lazy to cook their own bacon. Jon Stewart dipped a frozen sausage-wrapped-pancake-on-a-stick into it. Then showed us baconnaise LITE. Yes, of course it's actually spelled "lite."

Oh, and I loved Basketball Jones when it came out. Big hit!

I missed that but i did see baconnaise somewhere recently - surprisingly i don't think it was at Zenma's. Yeah, the Jimmy Dean Chocolate Chip Pancakes and Sausage On a Stick! http://www.junkfoodblog.com/2006/07/jimmy-dean-chocolate-chip-pancakes.html
