Bone The Fish - Most Recent Comments!

Who said you can't coin your own term? What is "Boning the Fish"? It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite TV Show, Celebrity, Movie Series or Music Group has reached its peak. That instant you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it a climax of sorts. We call it "Boning the fish". From that moment on things will simply never be the same.

Not exactly, Robert, long-short of it is that Opus got spun off into his own less frequent comic strip then when Brethed decided to pull the plug altogether, he had Opus get 'reborn' as a drawing in a book- inside the last comic strip itself! Well, it beat how "For Better or For Worse" ended- yet didn't end. Anyway, although some of the characters I couldn't stand (e.g. the talking roaches), overall I liked the strip and followed it as long as I could in all its incarnations. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 28, 2010, 5:55 pm

I have mixed feelings about unions: in the past they were about keeping corrupt businesses from exploiting their workers and paying them slave wages. Now, many have turned into corrupt businesses themselves. If your union wants something from a business but isn't getting it--for example, the wage going from $15 an hour to $20 an hour--and you're cool with $15 an hour...tough. You HAVE to stop working and go on strike. If you continue to work, the union could punish you. Also, if the business refuses to give in to their demands and your money is getting low, you can either work against the union's wishes (and get punished) or continue to strike until you wind up bankrupt. Weren't unions created to fight this sort of thing? And now THEY are doing it themselves? I don't believe a business should be allowed to bully their employees, but why would you trade one bully for another? If you're on strike, the union isn't paying you a dime. Forcing someone to do something with little to no pay is slavery, isn't it? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 28, 2010, 9:56 am

JustLooking, go back and read your own post. I hit every one of your *points* , such as they are, dead on. You weren't arguing for businesses setting "reasonable" wages and benefits; you were arguing that business should be able to do "whatever it damn well pleases (YOUR words) in those areas, with no type of oversight or regulation whatsoever. When you begin your reply by trying to completely twist the substance of your earlier post -- clearly because you were embarrassed at having its content pointed out so explicitly -- you invalidate your own arguments. And I find it really amusing that you feel it's A-okay to speculate on my being a "union agitator", which you clearly intended as a slur (and I'm sure in your lexicon it is, though it ain't one in mine), but get all miffed because I ask you if you might have some behind-the-scenes-interest in the subject, such as your being an employer (or possible even a pro-business lobbyist of some sort). The very substance of your latest 'reply' pretty much tells the whole story with you. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 28, 2010, 8:09 am

Ive been closely following both situations- the AVATAR being put ahead of BAA is tragic- being that Avatar is comlete and utter Shite, and basically only a piece of flashy PC propaganda that folks liked "looking at"- this film was devoid of any heart, emotion or storytellign that wasnt plagarized and sold to the audience as a 3rd grade level. BAA is an amazing story told now over 22 volumes that is INCREDIBLE. This is a waste to put avatar (note now in all small case) above BAA.

A name change can make a big difference in how something's perceived; look up the term "unfortunate acronym" sometime. The FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit was at one time called the Behavioral Sciences Unit. Its name was changed to "Investigative Support Unit," literally in order to take the BS out of profiling. Since profiling in those days was considered by some to be a witch-doctor-style art rather than a serious investigative tool, the name change made a big difference in how it was perceived -- and received, when the agents were called in to assist on a case. Anyway, point being, you can't blame those IT guys for not wanting to be called "EUSC" or "You suck." -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 27, 2010, 7:52 am

JustLooking, are you a bit dim? It is NOT the "right" of stores and employers to "pay whatever they damn well please". That hasn't been their "right" for quite some time now. And the reason that it isn't their "right" is precisely because of the actions of organized labor petitioning the government to enact regulations to curb abuses by employers and restrict some of their so-called "rights". It's clear that, according to your logic, the worker should have no rights whatsoever, and should just be thankfully grovelling on his knees that he has a job at all, even if it's not paying him enough to live on securely. Next we know, you'll be arguing on behalf of employers' "rights" to use child labor. Why do I get the really funny feeling that you have some agenda going on here you haven't bothered to disclose to the rest of us? Do you happen to be an employer or business owner yourself by any chance? -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 27, 2010, 7:51 am

I've heard that the law in the States allows companies to fire people at will for any reason and get away with it. If that's true then the workers definitely need Unions. Yes, Unions have the problem of also protecting unproductive employees that do things like no calling on a regular basis or even if they do show up, they do little to no work. With companies getting bigger and bigger and accountability going the way of the dinosaur, the workers need something to protect them. Unions may well be all they have left. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on November 24, 2010, 9:07 pm

Sorry to disillusion you--but it's the low-wage, dead-end crap employers like Wal-Mart who are the worst exploiters and need the oversight of unionization the most. If you educate yourself about the true business practices of these companies, and do a bit of digging, rather than accepting the bland, smiley-face anti-union portrayals of themselves that these companies spend billions on projecting to a public made up of individuals like you and all those who think unions are somehow 'outdated' and that companies such as Wal-Mart may not be perfect, but are essentially benign in nature, you'd realize this quickly enough. You'd realize it even quicker if you worked for one of these companies. And with the continual downturns this economy is taking (and will continue to take), you just may find yourself working for one of them one day, no matter how cozy your present situation might be. And, trust me--you will REALLY find out what how these companies screw their employees then. Don't count on so-called 'labor laws' to help you--most of these laws have been so effectively gutted in the post-Reagan Republican war on American labor, that they offer no real protections worthy of the name. And again, should you ever be forced into the circumstance of being employed by one of these companies, you'll discover that at first-hand very fast. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 24, 2010, 7:19 pm

JustLooking, you sound so utterly brainwashed by the past 30-plus years of rightist propaganda regarding unions it's probably useless to talk to you, but here goes. Do you honestly believe America is some type of 'worker's paradise' at this point? Do you honestly believe that the working class are enjoying protections against abuses here that exist nowhere else in the Western world? You speak about the situation in other countries--have you BEEN to those countries? Do you know anything about them other than what you've been told in the American mainstream media? (I have been to several of them, and do know a bit.) Your opening remark--"You sound like a union activist"--is, pardon my saying so, rather ignorant-sounding; it's a bit like shouting "Commie" at anyone who points out flaws in the American system. You believe that saying this automatically invalidates points and arguments you don't want to hear. Unfortunately it doesn't--and I suspect time is going to be more on the side of progressives who realize that the time for strong union presence has returned than it is on the side of conservative dinosaurs who believe in the infallibility of the 'laissez-faire' worker's economy--far from being 'unnecessary', unions are more necessary than ever to the American worker's survival than they've ever been. Closing your eyes and ears to facts doesn't make them go away, I'm afraid. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 24, 2010, 5:38 am

You make good points, JustLooking. Unions back in the day were necessary and they did do a lot of great things like the 40 hour work week, child labor laws, overtime pay, benefits, etc. Unfortunately, they got too much power and in the process became selfish and unreasonable, wanting huge stock options and fantastic retirement packages (full benefits for the rest of your life if you retire at age 50!) for little work in return. It's a broken model. Many jobs go overseas not because of "union busting" that's going on in the states, but because of the ridiculous taxes and fees businesses are issued for hiring employees or producing goods. Liberals who want fees for "carbon footprint" or another one of their social programs are what are making businesses move overseas more so that CEOs who want another bonus paycheck, though the liberal media would make you think otherwise. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 23, 2010, 4:37 pm

Maybe the networks felt it was in poor taste (ie: implied vomiting- you know the networks back then were still a little skittish about any sort of excretory or scatalogical references either implied or blatant) so perhaps they urged LC's to pull the ad prematurely.

I understand that kids and teens will force the parents to buy hefty amounts of merchandise of their favorite teen show, but would it hurt to spare a little bit of work for us who grew with Goofy & friends? -- Submitted By: (Saunich) on November 17, 2010, 3:21 pm

Knighthood - Random Topics
Salman Rushdie deserves knighthood WAY ore than Elton John or Paul McCartney or however many other celebs have gotten it "just because". Remember, he wrote that book long before 9/11 when we all found out just how savage Muslim extremists can be. I heard that back in the day instead of lightly touching each shoulder with some ceremonial sword people receiving knighthood used to get whacked hard with a real sword. Even if that's not true it just seems cooler :-) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on November 16, 2010, 4:42 pm

Little Caesars - Random Topics
There are some Little Caesars around where I live and for $5 a pizza without ordering I can't complain. I do remember in the 90's the cool thing about Little Caesars (other than the little Roman guy saying "Pizza Pizza" in the commercials) was that it was the first square pizza I ever had. As a kid I thought it was a cool gimmick. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on November 16, 2010, 12:54 pm

Knighthood - Random Topics
I think knights these days would have an advantage getting good tables in restaurants and even airline seats and one might get more invites to swanky soirees (especially in the UK) from social climbers but, otherwise, I see very little use for it these days. However; to show how folks can easily get confused re entertainers getting knighted, I haven't forgotten one of the worst "Millionaire" contestants who blew the $200 question when she incorrectly guessed that the rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot HAD been knighted by Queen Elizabeth!LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 16, 2010, 11:57 am

Wal-Mart - Random Topics
Unfortunately, that's a big part of the problem any more--too many people who 'don't have a problem with' a business that treats its workers exploitatively, violates their rights to form unions, engages in tactics deliberately intended to make their suppliers dependent on them or force them to go under, to name just a few of Wal-Mart's sins--we have 'no problem' with business practices that are ruining the working class in this country, and then we sit back and whine about the fact that our economy has gone to hell. A good economy depends on decent treatment of your workers, fair wages, and responsible corporate behavior all the way down the food chain. When America allowed this to stop being the case we were sunk. And now we cry about jobs going overseas, but we still don't get that our collective sense of 'not having a problem' with irresponsible/reprehensible corporate behaviors is a large component to what helped land us in the intractable mess we're in today. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 16, 2010, 9:25 am

Slay a dragon and rescue a maiden? LOL! Alas, knighthood isn't nearly as honorable now as it was back then. In the past, it was a distinguished title, but now? Not so much. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 16, 2010, 8:46 am

Knighthood - Random Topics
What's the purpose now? Obviously, it's a "title" only. It's not as if when someone receives a knighthood that he must immediately go out a slay a dragon and rescue a fair maiden. Other than being labeled as "Sir", do any other perks come with it? Like discounts in restaurants or car rentals? -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 15, 2010, 3:48 pm

Little Caesars - Random Topics
As for the quality of the pizza- meh. I've had worse. The thing I miss most about Little Ceasar's is the TV commercials. For a time Little Ceasar's had some of the funniest and most imaginative commercials on TV. My personal favorite was one I call "Uncle Nunzio." To give you some perspective to set up the ad- around the time "Uncle Nunzio" aired, there were a bunch of new spaghetti sauces that had come on the market and were blitzing the airwaves with these schmaltzy, 'a taste of the old-world' type ads hawking these new sauces complete with somewhat dreamy imagery of the Italian countryside and so on and so forth (I think you get my drift). Anyway, there was this commercial that starts out just like the aforementioned spaghetti sauce ads going on about somebody's old Uncle Nunzio who got up at the break of dawn, chose only the freshest ingredients and spent all day whipping up his old-world culinary masterpieces. Then they cut to the stereotypical Italian family all laughing and talking seated at tables in a beautiful lush garden with fountains and statue art reminiscent of Italy preparing to enjoy this meal. This portion of the commercial ends with the calm male voice-over saying "...and the entire family can agree on one thing- it's tastes AWFUL." Then suddenly everyone starts making faces as if they had just been told they'd just put dog poop in their mouths. A fly flies over one of the pots of food, makes a frantic buzzzing sound then drops dead. A kid dumps a plate of Uncle Nunzio's food into a fountain with a statue then the statue throws up. Then they make some suggestion that the family would've done better to go to Little Ceasar's Pizza and they throw up some splash screen with their latest deal. Funny Funny ad. I keep looking for it on YouTube, but it hasn't shown up there yet. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 15, 2010, 9:37 am

I like watching the Will It Blend? series although the stuff featured does indeed blend and it gets predictable after a while - it always ends with "Whoo...(term regarding what was blended) smoke! Don't breathe this." That said, my personal favorite would have to be when Dickson blended a vuvuzela. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on November 12, 2010, 7:44 pm
