First, the random topics.
Scouring the sports pages of the LA Times in an attempt to decode the success of the 2012 Los Angeles Dodgers and report back to Bad Deal Neal my findings, I came across an article about the home stadium of the USC Trojans football program, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. According to the LA Times article, the Los Angeles Coliseum was used as the site for a porn film. I'm not sure which I am more curious about...the fact the Coliseum was a video shoot location for "The Gang Bang Girl #32" or the fact the LA Times decided to run an article about this a decade after the 2002 production was released.
Splendid investigative reporting by the LA Times. A man of Bad Deal Neal's stature can certainly admire the forsight.
(Side note: Does anyone else find it ironic that the star of the movie goes by the name of "Mr. Marcus?" Marcus Allen, not the...cough-cough...movie star was a star running back at USC from 1978-1981. Additionally, OJ Simpson (Juice) wore #32 at USC, bringing the coincidence total to two in this investigation of investigative reporting. I guess the "Juice" wasn't the only one on the loose in
the Coliseum. Somewhere, super USC fan Snoop Dog is curious how he got left out of this equation.)
While completing this important research for Bad Deal Neal, an advertisement from Fifth Third Bank popped up on my screen.
What is the significance of a Fifth Third Bank advertisement you ask?
|Be like Curious George, start with a question and look under the hat to find what's there.|
Fifth Third Bank's slogan is "The Curious Banker."
I'm curious who the advertising agency is. A curious bank (er)?
I want my cartoons to have a monkey character that is curious, not my bank. I'm curious how long it took for Fifth Third Bank to repay their $3.4 billion in TARP funds. I'm curious about the timing of Duke Energy guaranteeing a $10,000,000 credit line to the Democratic National Committee, a credit line issued by Fifth Third Bank.
I'm curious if there is corruption in D.C. and Wall Street? (Stop laughing)
I'm curious if Bad Deal Neal had anything to do with this.
I'm curious what I may have for lunch tomorrow.
Bad Deal Neal is probably curious why I am discussing poor banking advertising slogans and decade old "flicks" instead of funneling him the next level knowledge mentioned in paragraph one that may lead the Pirates to their first non losing season in 20 years.
I'm curious about where I can find a Pittsburgh Parrot costume for Halloween if Bad Deal Neal screws up the run for 81.
Magic # 56.
