The “Where’s The Beef?” Board Game!
“Where’s the beef?” is the #1 thing heard outside of John Mayer’s dressing room by a groupie after a show, but in the 80s, it was the #1 thing heard on TVs everywhere. It became Wendy’s catchphrase when manicurist turned actress Clara Peller said it in a commercial. Now, if that catchphrase came out today, Hollywood would turn it into a movie since they turn everything into a movie (and yes, the movie would be a 4-hour multi-layered emotional drama about one grandma’s visit to a vegan restaurant for dinner). But back in the 80s, when something was a hit, they turned it into a board game. So Milton Bradley put out the Where’s The Beef? board game in 1984.

No, the “Miley Cyrus” of squirrels isn’t Miley Cyrus thirsty for attention in a squirrel costume. It’s this actual squirrel contending with a Yankee Flipper in this video (via Mashable) set to her song “Wrecking Ball.” Exactly what is a Yankee Flipper? If you guessed “a move that J.Lo pulls on A-Rod during sexy times,” you were wrong!
For those not in the bird feeding game, there is a type of motorized, weight-activated bird feeder called the Yankee Flipper, which spins interloping squirrels around in the circle until they lose their grip on its base.
You gotta give “The Miley Cyrus of Squirrels” some credit. He’s tenacious like you read about.
She should have announced this at a reception kicking off some sort of awareness campaign because, if true, that’s a serious problem and we need to strive for a cure. Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend, skivvies sniffer Amber Rose, thinks that her ex and President Trump share personalities and that Trump is “Kanye in a white man’s body.” Continue reading
Is there anyone left in Hollywood who’s been the direct inspiration for a #MeToo hashtag that hasn’t been rounded up yet? I see you, James Woods! French film director and Captain America’s arch-nemesis Luc Besson gave us movies like The Fifth Element (“Multi-pass!“) and Lucy. He also allegedly gave a woman something straight out of the Cosby catalog – a drug in her tea that knocked her out so he could allegedly rape her. Europe 1 (via the NY Daily News) reports that an unnamed actress filed a complaint against Besson on Friday morning, accusing him of drugging and raping her. Continue reading
The Markle family continues to entertain…. Daddy Thomas Markle was among the members of the now Duchess’ family that were acting crazy before the big day. And by “acting crazy,” I mean “selling her ass out.” Dad seems to have changed his tune. He’s publicly called for the Markles to close their mouths about the wedding and marriage. Dad must have realized that he needs to get it together if he ever wants to make it past the guards at Kensington Palace to see his daughter again.
To recap, Dad made his own grab for the attention spirit stick by flip-flopping about attending and getting paid to stage a corny photoshoot. He even got (elective?) heart surgery which prevented him from going and to keep the spotlight where it belonged – on him! (Prince Tampon walked Meghan down the aisle in his stead.)
TMZ (of course) spoke with Thomas post-ceremony. He expressed regret about “not being able to be there and not being able to hold my daughter’s hand.” More interestingly, he also expressed a wish for his other children to put it on mute.
