Here is A.C.'s newest buddy, Molly, a friend's new pupsters

We gonna bring the ruckus all up in this here fracas, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers

This weekend was Philadelphia’s “Naked Bicycle Ride” day. That makes this “Don’t buy a used bike in Philadelphia" week.

After her cocaine arrest, Paris Hilton has been banned-for-life from the Wynn Casinos in Las Vegas. I once saw a drunk throw up on a crowded craps table and then he soiled his pants. He wasn’t banned from the casino for life.

The NFL record for most seasons played is 26 by George Blanda. Do you realize what this means? Brett Favre could retire and comeback at least seven more times.

In Miami, a scientist flying from Saudi Arabia, Thomas Butler, was detained when they found a bomb-like device in his bag. Be honest, how many were surprised by a Saudi suspected with a bomb named Thomas Butler? That’s like al Qaeda’s second in command named Carl Peabody.

There is a clip of an Iowa football player on his scooter who gets hit head-on by a truck, he flips through the air and lands in the street and he was fine. And yet whimpy baseball players, Sammy Sosa and Mat Latos, each went on the 15-day disabled list after they hurt themselves sneezing.

Folks, there are three life rules you never break: don’t ride a scooter without a helmet, do not eat sushi in Mexico and don’t sit down in a bathroom until you see the toilet paper.

Last week after getting out of rehab, Lindsay Lohan bumped her Maserati into a baby stroller. Nobody got hurt, but are Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton in some sort of biggest A-hole contest we don’t know about? What does the winner get, the Andy Dick award?

There is a clip of an Iowa football player on his scooter who gets hit head-on by a truck, he flips through the air and lands in the street on his back and he was fine. And yet whimpy baseball infielder, Chris Brown, once missed a game because he “slept on his eye funny.”

The winner of the Texas State fair food contest was Fried Beer. A pretzel filled with beer and then deep-fried. How fat and lazy have we become when we can’t go to the trouble of drinking a beer and eating a pretzel?

Since you asked:

Revived a great recipe the other nicht. Marinate a nice top sirloin in red wine, splash of soy sauce, dollop of ketchup and Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, pepper. The longer it marinates the better, but at least a good hour at room temperature in a sealed-airless zip bag.

Before grilling apply rub of garlic powder, fresh pepper and sea salt. Grill with wood smoke old school searing it first on both sides and then placing it over medium heat (Careful to cross the grill marks) About 10 to 12 minutes total

In a sauce pan, simmer-down the wine marinade until less than half of the original so it is fairly thick. After letting the meat rest, slice thinly on a bias, and serve slathered with the reduction sauce with baked potatoes and a light salad. “Bam” the meat and potatoes with chopped parsley.

Tasty, tasty, tasty.

Apropos of nada squatta, what the hell has happened to HBO's "Entourage"? Talk about a show with a terminal case of "Taking-itself-too-seriously-itis." The show's stars have gotten too famous making their characters a joke inside a joke of a smug joke.

What happened to the shows where Ari (Jeremy Piven) loads up on Viagra to have a nooner with his wildly hot wife and she shines him on? As she leaves the bedroom, he sits on the bed and shouts after her:

"Oh, come on, honey, I'm like R. Kelley at recess over here."

So wrong. So damn funny.
