It looks like advertising spending will be down this year for the Super Bowl due to the economy. I'm sure it's a one in a billion chance but maybe, just maybe we'll see a really, really low budget commercial like this Carvel commercial for Cookie O Puss from 1982.
What? A guy can dream can't he?

It looks like advertising spending will be down this year for the Super Bowl due to the economy. I'm sure it's a one in a billion chance but maybe, just maybe we'll see a really, really low budget commercial like this Carvel commercial for Cookie O Puss from 1982.
Look at this miniature car that I see all the time in West Chester on Church Street. I mean - do you see how small that car is? I think it's called the Smart Car but I call it the Teensy Weensy.
Whenever I see these cars on the road as I travel around Chester County and the surrounding counties I always laugh and say to myself, "Please let there be a big fat guy in there, please let there be a big fat guy in there." And I speed up to catch a glimpse.
Kind of like on the episode of The Simpsons where Nelson is laughing at the small car and a tall dude gets out and chases him.
".....You think it's funny that I'm in this car? It's the largest automobile I can afford."
Yeah. It's kind of like that.
"Hey Dr Zibbs. Can you teach me to train deer?"
"I can't teach one to train deer my friend. It's all in here." (points to heart then rides Stags McCoy away - jumping over a fence and disappearing from view).
Maybe I'll just chuck a rock at them next time.

As tribute to what happened 40 years ago today when The Beatles played on top of the Apple Building on Saville Row and to the post I wrote yesterday about my Beatles dream I give you "I've Got A Feeling".
I'm also announcing that I'm the 6th Beatle. What? Everyone fights over the 5th Beatle spot -I'm claiming the 6th Beatle spot. I bet you wish you thought of it but it's too late.
So "I've Got A Feeling" is today's Friday send off song and I'm giving a shout out to these bloggers:
- Tenakim from the blog My Therapy
- Katie from Stray Raisins who mentioned me in her blog this week. See how that works?
- Sarah from Sarah's Blogtastic Adverntures - she's been leaving lots of comments on TBY.
I'd like to have at least three people step forward - that have taste - to volunteer to be shrine keepers in case - God forbid - I die in a terrible, fiery car crash. Here are some tips for what I was thinking:
- No plastic, no stuffed animals, and no cardboard allowed around the shrine.
- I don't want anything wrapped in tinfoil.
- Do not use a tree or telephone as the centerpiece. A freestanding tripod made of iron with a nice verdigis patina would be nice. This would give mourners access from all sides and allow for tasteful lights to be strung and seen from all vantage points during holidays and anniversaries of days I wrote one of my classic posts. Will this mean it's lit everyday? This will be for historians to decide.
- The shrine should be constructed in a way that a "traveling duplicate" can be be made. After one month of my death, the traveling duplicate can make a tour of the U.S. The name of this venture should be, "The THAT BLUE YAK shrine - Time To Heal."

(Hitting imaginary kid on the side of the head) Stupid!
First of all, I saw this video on a blog that I follow called The List of the Day. Cary has whopping 337 followers. Damn!
OK. So rarely would I laugh at nice looking women dancing in bathing suits but..... This is Brook Benton singing Mother Nature - Father of Time and you've got to see it to believe it. If you've ever, ever seen someone that can't dance TO the music, this one will top it.
The super star in this video is the blond. Man does she look ridiculous.

And worst of all, he'd have to high five every other person.
Unless I know the person AND something really great just happened like a touchdown or an old person slipped ice, I don't like to high five people. Is there anyway to decline a high five other than looking at their raised hand and saying,
"No thanks. I'm uh....just not as excited as you are now. Just...um...move onto the next person."
I think from now on when people try to high five me, I'm going to do the old, "Got your nose thing that you do with kids. And when they're standing there saying, "C'mon! High five man!", I'm going to calmly say, "I'm afraid I can't do that because I've got you nose."
It'll make no sense but it'll make me feel better.

*For the record, this is the first post I've ever done about farting and I've been blogging over two years.
So I was on a blog today and the blogger (a regular commenter) had a picture up that totally looks like the vampire chick from the movie Twilight. So I didn't want to just copy and paste the picture here without asking so I did ask her and she said no.
But since the internet is up for everyone to see I am going to show you the link to her. So here's Kristen Stewart from the movie Twilight............
And here's Greta from the blog Noodle-ing. To see the lookalike, click here and scroll down to the second picture. Uncanny! And I think that the Kristen Stewart chick is actually the poor man's Greta as opposed to the other way around which is usually how I find my lookalikes.
So here's another really weird dream I had last night that I'm totally not making up.
I had to come up with an advertising campaign for a donut chain. It was some donut chain from New York that I've never heard of. So my idea was to have someone secretly fly a helicopter to the Statue of Liberty at night and paint the lips and around the lips with brown paint so it looked like she had been eating chocolate donuts. But really make it sloppy - like if you handed a candy bar to a mental patient and said, "Here's your lipstick. Put it on."
So you've got The Statue of Liberty looking like she ate chocolate then the idea was to have a 40 foot replica of the donut box sitting next to The Statue of Liberty's feet.
Then I realize that it's a stupid idea because it's illegal to mess with national monuments but the client said that since they'd use paint that would wash off in a month they were OK with it.
Then I started getting nervous.

Remember the Frito Bandito commercial? Don't lie fatty. You know the one for Frito's corn chips? Below you'll find the commercial from the 70's.
What made me think about this was the Frito Bandito eraser that that they used to give away with the Frito's corn chips. It just popped into my head the other day. I used to love that thing. It sucked for erasing but for having a Mexican on the end of your pencil it was #1.
And for the record, the BBQ Frito's are much better than the original flavor.
It's pretty rare when you see a scene in a movie and not only is the dialogue terrible, but all of the actors in the scene are God awful. This is the case with this scene from The Breakfast Club. And talk about melodrama when Judd Nelson* freaks out at the end....what a friggin' baby.
Come to think about it, Michael Anthony Hall isn't that bad in this scene. Not great, but not bad.
*I also have a problem watching Judd Nelson because of his huge, cavernous nostrils.
Saturday, January 24, 2009
If you give me an idea that I can use, you won't be invited tonight but it will seem like you are there because I'll put your name on a piece of paper and place it on the table...... the card table.

"You're going to help me pick up girls Dr Zibbs?"
Yes I am friend. But I'm not going to tell you how to do it The Pick-up Artist Style. Sorry Mystery. I'm gonna tell you Zibbs style.
Step 1: First of all, you need to be a bit familiar with the song Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye.
Step 2: You need to get two men to play separate characters. Try your local community theater. You'll find many no talents that will jump at the chance of an acting job.
Step 3: Find an attractive lady in a bar. If she's very dumb it will be a snap. If she's not a dummy, you may have to work a bit harder. I didn't say this would be easy did I?
Step 4: While hiding out of sight - maybe behind a potted plant, have actors one and two approach the lady - one actor on either side.
Actor #1: (dressed as weird professor he leans into the lady's face and whispers really loudly) Get up, get up, get up......
Actor #2: (dressed as a longshoreman or lumberjack he leans into the lady's face from the other side and breaths into her ear as creepily as possible) Wake up, Wake up, Wake up........
At this point, you come barreling out from the shadows.
You: Stop! (use the International "stop" motion of holding palm outward) I want you two jerks out of here! PRONTO!
(The actors flee. You coolly sit down next to her - make sure you've showered and you're well groomed).
Bartender: What do you want to drink Mac?
You: I'll take a scotch on the rocks. And for the lady, she'll have some (pause, look at her and cock head).... sexual healing - FROM ME - not from you.
Good luck! And to hear the Sexual Healing song and really get it into your blood, click here.
So that's my Friday send off song. And the shout out this week goes to new readers Belle from Fawty.com, Vic from the blog What Were You Thinking? and Cameron from Get The Stink Off.
Check out their blogs and tell them who sent you. Me. That's who.
And suppose one wanted to snap a picture with their Blackberry and email it to his friend Sean but when taking a picture, the camera makes a noise.

So everyone chimed in about The Outsiders on my last post. Now you want to talk about a real movie from back in the day, check out (again) - Fast Times at Ridgmont High.
In this clip, Damone gives his five point plan on how to treat women.
1) Never let on how much you like a girl.
2) Always call the shots.
3) Act like wherever you are, it's the place to be.
Can you name his steps four and five? Smooth.
And you know she smells good. Not like some of these slobs out there that are a total mess. Just look at her. Beautiful. If you're reading my blog Diane - call my people.
OK. Jimmy McNichol wasn't in it but I'm sure he wanted to be.

Here's what would have happened if the Peter Pan Peanut Butter "Man" came through our window in 1972 if my Dad got wind of it*. First watch the commercial:
(my dad walking into the kitchen)
Dad: What the hell is going on?!!
Peter Pan: (all flamboyant and excited) Peter Pan is the peanut butter eaters peanut....
Dad: Hit the breaks! Time out! What the hell are you doing in my kitchen?
Mom: Jim, he wants to know if we're the peanut butter...
Dad: Sally I'll handle this! (pins Peter Pan against the wall. Pan's hat falls to the floor. Eyes are watery. He's terrified) I'm not going to to ask you this again. What the hell are you doing in my kitchen?
Peter Pan: ..uh..uh...(gulps) I bring the peanut beaters butter eater....
Dad: Listen Tinkerbell, get the marbles out of your mouth and.....
*If anyone wants to fund this and make it into a play, please contact me privately.
- I find about 200 people that are willing to take pictures and blog about this person. (You guys. If you agree to relocate to Chester County, PA).

I did however just finish reading the Artie Lange book, "Too Fat To Fish". I read the ENTIRE book. It was pretty good, even if you're not a Stern fan because he only talks about the Stern Show in a few chapters.
Much of the book is about his ridiculous cocaine use. There are some really funny stories about him working on MAD TV as well as some good stuff about his stand-up days and growing up in general. He's just one of those naturally funny, likable guys.
That there - is my fascinating review. If you want to see his appearance on Letterman, click here.
- Why in Google Analytics does it often say that the total time a reader viewed my blog was zero seconds even though the person left a comment?
- If someone is reading my blog in Google readers, does the visit show up in Google Analytics?
- Why does it sometimes take 2 minutes for my posts to show up in Google Reader and other times it takes 6 hours?
- I like to keep many posts visible on my main blog page. Does anyone have a problem with slow loading of my page (hillbillies with telegraphed rigged Internet connection need not answer).
- I just received 30 plus identical spam comments. I've deleted them all. Is this because I turned off my word verification? I've since turned it back on. I think I know the answer to this one.
- And please add any websites, templates or applications that you use for your blogs.

This video is mostly for the West Chester locals. It's a video that someone made for the East High School Class of 1988 reunion. As a graduate of the superior high school - Henderson - I will say that it's pretty good work for someone that went to East.
Some of the local hangouts shown are: The Exton Drive-In, The DK Diner, The Guernsey Cow, The Goshen Fair, Pulsations, Price Street Burger King and Jimmy John's*. Oh the memories. To view it, click here. What memories do YOU have of these places? Hmmm?
The one obvious place that's not shown is The Downingtown Farmers Market. If anyone has pictures of that dump, please, please post them online and leave a link in the comments section. I'm begging you!
*And good bye to artist Andrew Wyeth. A Chadds Ford resident who ate at Jimmy John's many times.
Did you know that Popeye made it's first appearance in the comics on this day in 1929? Yup. And to tell you the truth I never really liked Popeye. I did however like the Sea Hag and Alice the Goon that were on the Popeye cartoon. In fact, that weird chin that the Sea Hag sports is one of my favorite features that some old people get. I hope I never look like that.
I do have a Popeye Zippo lighter so I guess I don't dislike it that much.
A show that reminds me of Popeye is Gumby. The reason is because when I was a kid waiting for the bus, it was either Popeye or Gumby that would be the animation that was showed during Philly's Captain Noah Show....or was it during the Captain Kangaroo Show? I forget. Anyways, here's the theme to Gumby. After making sure nobody's listening, sing along!

Rod Stewart used to be cool. His height of cool was when he was in The Faces. Now he's doing music from the Great American Songbook? What? He's morphing into Barry Manilow I tells Ya!
Maybe when they pumped his stomach that time they accidentally pumped some of the cool out of him. I don't know. I'm not a Doct....I mean - I don't know.
So here's the Friday Send Off Song coming to you from Chester County, PA where it's a freezing 12 degrees. And this week's send off is dedicated to DMB, Wendy Brandes and Raf. Go check out their blogs and tell them who sent ye'. That would be me! Dr Zibbs.
Book Club Lady: Oh my God Zibbs. Funny to see you here.
She walks away and I look down at the blog I had been reading*. The title of the blog that is now almost flashing like a neon sign reads.......
Stupid! I wanted to yell, "I SWEAR I'M NOT RESEARCHING HOOKERS! I SWEAR...LOOK..IT'S JUST THE TITLE OF A BLOG!!" - but didn't.
*The blog I was reading was Catherinette's - but I forget the name of her blog so chime in if you know it.

Oh My GOD!!! That was my first car! It looked exactly like that ridiculous brown one pictured above but it was gray. And I'm not lying when I tell you that the previous owner added a tachometer to it. Sweet. Worthless but sweet....Well...sweet to laugh at. By others.
And you've got to see some of the LeCar's they have on the Wikipedia page here.
What are YOUR favorite stories about grey Renault LeCars. Go ahead - share them with us.

So I told the blogger Tova Darling the other day I would write a post showing her Etsy stuff*. I like her and told her I would do it for free if she wanted. But it got me thinking that maybe I should reserve one spot on the sidebar for bloggers that want to promote something. Let's say it was Etsy products or Ebay stuff. Or someone just wanted to promote their blog or leave a big ass message on this life changing blog o'mine. Like a birthday message or marriage proposal for someone.
What do you think would be a fair price? $10 for a week? That's sounds fair to me. And I'm talking a big ole' spot like the size of H's condom covered fingers you see over to the right.
So..uh....does anyone want to promote anything?
*It's actually now on the sidebar of her site so check it out. And I don't want tons of freeloaders now coming out of the closet asking me to write posts about their stuff. Geeez. Have some respect. But if you do have stuff on Etsy feel free to leave a link in the comments because I would like to check it out. But please - no yarn and Popsicle stick art.

So everyone is changing the layouts of their blogs these days. I just don't have the patience to do it right now so I simply added the picture you see above. It's an image of me barbecuing on my deck. I then realized there was a bee's nest under the grill. Using my catlike reflexes I screamed like a girl and ran inside to get my electric tennis racket bug swatter* - best invention ever - and went to town on the bees. They didn't stand a chance.
And on the subject of new blog layouts, two of my favorites are the blogs of Whiskey Marie and The Verdant Dude (aka B.E.Earl). I'm very, very jealous. I especially like how The Verdant Dude's blog has the options of tabs that let you have links to other blogs. And I'll add that these are two of my favorite blogs as well.
*Note that there are spikes hanging off of the electric tennis racket bug swatter. These show you that it's been used in many bee battles. They could easily poke out an eye but danger is my middle name. Well, actually "Screams Like a Girl" is my middle name. "Danger" is my Confirmation name.
When it comes to TV advertising spending I didn't think anyone would top HeadOn. That commercial was on non stop. And I don't know how they even sold one unit of HeadOn because they were never clear on what to do with it. Specifically, where should it be applied? Who would even know? Maybe I wasn't listening closely enough.
The Sham Wow* on the other hand is going places and I predict is going to be a product star. And why? Look at the smooth talk of Vince the Sham Wow guy. He's telling you where it's at. It's as simple as that. And I'm sure you ladies can agree that if this fellow approached you in a bar, you'd be putty in his hands. Yeah. Don't lie.
*They say to beware of imitators. So....I'm just warning you. And damn it..where was the Sham Wow during hurricane Katrina? If my calculations are correct, they could have cleaned up that New Orleans mess with about 10 Sham Wows. Damn you slow development cycles!
Now, I'm not asking people to hurl fruit at her when they see here but damn it, someone need to get to to the bottom of this.

Jesus Christ. I can't believe that is the top Google Search! People sure do have a lot of time on their hands. And the more time people waste reading nonsense, the less time they have to read my amazing gems. So to save you time, here are a few search terms in the top 100:
American Pie Band Camp
2010 Ford Taurus
Desert Botanical Garden
Peanut Butter recall
The Karate Kid
Fun Foil Art
Now get back to reading my blog.
So I bought Mr Show Season 3 with a Best Buy gift card I had and it's hysterical. I haven't seen some of these comedy sketches in a few years. They're still hysterical. This one is about a group called Indomitable Spirit. They're a group of people with missing limbs. You've go to see. it. Click here.
So I was pretty close with my prediction last week of the Eagles Vikings game. I will now tell you the score of the Eagles Giants game today. The score shall be 16 - 14. The Eagles will win.
Now if you'll excuse me I need to go to Wawa to pick up some coleslaw. The slaw will be topping the pulled pork sandwiches I'll be inhaling during the game. Go Eagles!

Here's a song by M.I.A. called Paper Airplanes that's been out for a while. It's used in Slumdog Millionaire. You know, the movie I was telling you to see. Never has the combination of a cash register and a gun been used in a song so effectively. Well, it's was pretty cool in Pink Floyd's "Money" but there was no gun.
And did you know that this song sampled "Straight to Hell" by the Clash. It's true. Click on that link and see.
Let me know if you like it. I'm not crazy about the video but the song is really cool. Like me.
Mmmm. Here's a sausage sandwich I made. Here's the simple recipe:
Sausage (hot or mild)
OK, this is so simple that anyone can make it.
- Saute onion in olive oil, then garlic. Add salt and, pepper and garlic powder. Remove from pan.
- Cook sausage in same pan until outside is brown.
- Before hand, broil long, hot peppers under broiler until skins are black. Place in paper bag for 15 minutes to steam then remove skins.
- Place American cheese on long roll and broil until cheese is slightly melted.
- Put sausage, onions, garlic and peppers on roll.
- Add Tabasco or horseradish if you please.

Person: Zibbs, what are you doing here..wait....are you crying?
Me: Um. No..I mean......yeah.
Person: Ha. What movie are you coming from? Marley and Me*? Bride Wars? Don't tell me it was Bride Wars!
Me: I don't know you jackass. I was too concerned trying to revive my dad. He was an usher and he just died. He was in theater #5 right over there. I gotta go. I gotta tell my mom.
So the money making scheme that I mentioned in the title of the post is waiting outside of theaters and photographing people then telling them I want $20 or their cry baby face will be plastered all over the world wide web of the Internets. Does anyone want to get in on the ground floor of this sure fire business? If so, let me know how much seed money you're willing to front.
I love Norah Jones. She one of my favorite female voices of all time. If you haven't heard of The Little Willies, it's another group she's in with a bunch of her friends. I love every song on the album - which is rare. It's one of the albums I like to listen to on my ipod while lying in bed.
And like her other albums, it produced in a way that is perfect for listening to with headphones. Her voice is so smooth it just turns me to mush. Here she is performing live at The Living Room in NYC.
And this Friday send off song is dedicated to Greta, Morgan the Muse and Susan. Go check out their blogs and tell them Dr Zibbs sent you.
And if you want to see one of the most beautiful actresses, look at that picture of Freida Pinto. She's drop dead, why are my trousers getting tighter gorgeous! This is her first movie and I'm predicting she's going to be a star. You heard it here. Here's her bio page.

Happy Birthday King. Here's one from Viva Las Vegas with Elvis and the sexy redhead Ann Margaret. Man she just oozes sexy. When was the last time you saw this clip? And is that a bit of tap dancing I see Elvis doing at 1:17?
Also, check out the getup on Ann Margaret. She must like that "outfit" because I swear she's wearing the same thing in Bye Bye Birdie. If this video doesn't get you going - nothing will.
Today is my birthday. Click here to see who was born and who died on January 8. This is a post I wrote last year. Note that there are only 2 comments. And one is from me! What a loser. Man this blog has come a long way in one year.

So I'm sure everyone's heard about the skier in Vail yesterday that was stuck on the ski lift dangling upside down by his pants. Bare. Could you imagine the reality of how embarrassing this is for the dude? Imagine his first day back to work. You know HR had a meeting to tell everyone that, "What happened is NOT funny and nobody is to discuss this situation with Bob. Are we clear?"
I thought that shitting your pants in a meeting would be the pinnacle of embarrassment but this just might be worse. What? I never shit my pants in a meeting...... I'm just sayin'.
And then you've got people making videos like this:
And on a footnote, he was there with his son!
Tuesday, January 6, 2009
I'm sure you've all marked down on your calendars that my birthday is January 8th (Thursday) but have you gotten me a gift yet? I have an idea for a gift. I'd like to have my biggest traffic week this week so I'm asking everyone to send a mass email out to your friends and tell them something like this*:
Hey friend, I'm not sure you read blogs at all, but the best one in the world is THAT BLUE YAK. Check it out. Simply Google this: That Blue Yak.
And here are links to some of his funniest posts:

Other ideas for January 8: Send me nude or revealing pictures. I'm discreet. Write a post about me. Leave a message on my Snapvine recorder (long distance charges apply as Fancy Schmancy has informed me so make sure you have long distance or use your cell phone).
*If you send out a mass email, let me know in the comments.
** I forgot how much this post made me laugh.
I have no idea if this book is good or not but every time I see this Attack of the Theater People book at the Exton Barnes and Noble I just start cracking up.
I'm waiting to see someone I know in the store so I can sneak up on them, reach this book around the corner into their face and say, "Hiiiiiiiiii there big boy."
So we're watching the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Vikings on Sunday at John Smith's house and we were getting on their son's case about a meal he had a few weeks ago. OK. First - what would you consider to be an amount of fried eggs and slices of bread that would cause you to say, "What the hell!! Are you kidding me?"
OK. Hold onto you plates. Here it comes....
My man had 10 fried eggs and a half a loaf of bread for breakfast! What??????
He's not obese. Yet. If I were one of those carnival workers that guesses weight and height, I'd say he's about 175 pounds and 5' 6". And his build is stocky/muscular. And he's about 22 years old.
Is it just me or is this ridiculous? And the let me know if you have any nickname ideas. So far, the tops ones are Eggy, Eggs and my favorite Huevos Diez.

Has anyone seen the Vibrating Touch commercial? It's a fingertip massager (say: vibrator). I think it's genius that Trojan came out with this product. They've also packaged it in a thin box that looks similar to a condom box. Brilliant. I bet they're going to sell millions of units.
And I love the commercial where the old lady is listening to the two chicks talking about it then she chimes in and tells them where they can buy it. I've been interrupted by strangers at least a dozen times while discussing Ben Wa balls with friends so I guess the commercial is pretty realistic.
I do have two questions though. Are that many women bringing these things to work that they need to be pocket sized for concealment? Has anyone ever caught anyone or suspected someone giving themselves a "massage" at work?
Alex: I'm sure it did.

Remember Bob and Susan singing this classic, "I've Got Two" from Sesame Street? Here are two things that I will note:
1) Look at Susan's fancy footwork at 2:22. Groove it!
2) Since they're singing about having two feet, two hands, two eyes (that are both the same size), if I worked on the set, I would have hired a pirate to come on screen with a peg leg, a hook arm and an eye patch and say something like, "Yar. Do ya gotta rub it in?"
I'd do it just to keep Bob in his place.

So this song will tell you how I'm feeling today - Helpless by Neil Young. Another great song from my favorite concert movie - The Last Waltz.
I send this one out to sweetheart blogger Tova Darling, Buffalo Dick (who's busy enjoying the new fryer he got for Christmas) and Mike* from Brown Cottons And Red Sox - who's trying to build a larger reader base on his blog. Go visit their blogs and tell them Dr. Zibbs sent you.
Have a great weekend!
*And Mike, thanks again for getting your mom to grab Jon by the ear and tell him to do the right thing and leave a comment on my blog. He did it.
*I get my olives locally at the Downingtown Wegmans fresh bar. Can anyone recommend bottled olives? Are they as fresh? Also, this is boring sharp cheddar. Does anyone have any cheese recommendations?
Thursday, January 1, 2009
I need everyone's help! In my last post I told everyone that "I'll see you next year."
I'm a bit concerned that some of my stupid readers will think that I meant in "one year" or "2010" instead of today, which is actually a day later and is 2009. (Get it? see you "NEXT YEAR"?) If someone could start one of those chain emails to let all of my readers know that I am indeed blogging in 2009 I'd appreciate it.
P.S. Before you do it,take your mask off because Halloween has been over for 2 months.
