KFC Yum! Center

Friday, November 19th, 2010

I just heard the name of the new Louisville, Kentucky arena where the University of Louisville plays – “KFC Yum! Center“.


Yum! Brands, the owner and franchiser KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, was spun off from PepsiCo in the late 1990s and is apparently based in Louisville.

You might think the name is stupid, but originally it was “Tricon Global Restaurants, Inc.”

New Number

Thursday, March 4th, 2010


No, no, no, no: “Hella number: scientists call for new word for 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.”

Before this article I’d never heard of “Yotta-” before (it means Septillion) and now they want a number beyond that. Guess “Octillion” is too much like Octo-mom?

But “Hella-” is too much like No Cal “hella“, which I feel is hella lame.

Dumbo on Broadway

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

Annnnnnnnnnd the worst idea I’ve heard this week is that Walt Disney Theatrical Productions, or Disney Theatrical Group, or Disney on Broadway, or whatever Tom Schumacher’s calling his cadre this week, wants make a Broadway version of Dumbo: “Disney’s ‘Dumbo’ bet.”


Stupid, useless, and a waste of money.

Imagine a chorus of blackface crows. In 2010.

Gee Tom, are you trying to ruin another corporate division?

What’s next, Song of the South?
