A Taste of the Funny - Weather Report

A clever thing to say, with regard to the weather, would be if it was, you know, maybe 35 degrees today but, then, looking ahead on the forecast, they knew it would be maybe 70 degrees tomorrow, and so then a clever thing to say at that point would be maybe "Chili today, hot tamale", as a kind of a humorous weather report because - right? - if it were literally 35 degrees outside today it would likely be chilly, and then if it were going to be 70 degrees the next day it would certainly be warmer, and might even feel "hot" by comparison.  Plus, then, you get the double food pun which is awesome - "chili" for "chilly"; "tamale" for "tomorrow".

(You see because...)

Movie Trailers ARE Advertisements

So I hear about a movie that I like, and I want to see the trailer.  Well, I know I can go to and likely look it up, all well and good.  (And, for the record, let me state this - yes, I know is a free website to me and provides a fine service.  But.  Still.)  But then, before I see my trailer, they show me an advertisement.  But movie trailers are advertisements.  The movie is obviously a product, a product they want me to purchase, and the point of the trailer is to make me want to purchase the product.  Again, fine and dandy.  But if I'm going to watch the advertisement for a product, why should I have to watch the advertisement for another unrelated product first? As though an advertisement is the normal price I should have to pay to watch another advertisement.

Right, I know - because capitalism.  Still sounds like bullshit to me (as, in truth, much of capitalism does)...
