This man was arrested for punching his dad over macaroni and cheese.We are off to a rocky-ass start with our new day and time. Last week, the first show on the new night didn’t go out live at all! And this week, we were live, but two hours late. This should hopefully not be an issue any longer. But hey, at least we were live this time, right?
Adding to the rockiness is the skeleton crew we have this week. Dennis and Mike didn’t make it, so Cheese, Jabari and I make do. In fact, we coasted right through the hour. We had to skip a story due to a shortage on time.
Here’s what took up the show. Besides waiting on a new BILL AND TED script, we now know what Keanu Reeves has been up to. He’s directing! He made a film called MAN OF TAI CHI with which he also stars. He’s teamed up with the choreographer that worked on the MATRIX trilogy to bring us a movie full of punches, chops and kicks to the heads of goons and cops throughout Hong Kong. It’s our F.D.V.D.O.F.W.W.M.A.N. This, and several other new releases send us off into a number of our signature tangents. Bare with us, the DVD chunk of the show is a bit long.
We also have a round up of several comic and reboot movie stories that popped up last week. We now know that Wonder Woman will appear in the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN movie. That is not the official title, by the way. Gal Gadot will play the Amazonian gal. She’s best known for her work in the FAST AND FURIOUS movies… oh, should I not have said that? Is it, too soon? I wouldn’t want idiots bitching at me like they did WHEEL OF FORTUNE for referencing a cool movie that a cool actor performed in now that he’s dead. We have a sound effect on our board that references Paul Walker. We take a minute on the show today to consider what to do with said sound.
Meanwhile, Bryan Singer made his own announcement via Twitter. It appears he’ll be making another X-Men movie featuring the classic X-Men villain, Apocalypse. According to the vague twat, we can expect it some time in 2016.
TERMINATOR is getting a new reboot and a companion TV series. The new show will likely lead up to the movie and will NOT be related to the failed TERMINATOR: SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES as seen on Fox. Both the movie and the TV show will NOT use James Cameron’s timeline. To hell with the hard work of him, his writers and all the talented people who made those films… there’s money to be taken using nothing more than brand recognition!
Jerry Bruckheimer will also be taking some money. Only his is coming from Paramount Pictures where he’s signed a new three-year deal that includes a reboot to BEVERLY HILLS COP and a sequel to TOP GUN. These have both come up before on Who Asked You? but the reinvention of BEVERLY HILLS COP was previously supposed to be a TV series focusing on Axel Foley’s son who is now grown and also a cop. The show was destined for CBS but never got picked up. Now it looks like it’ll be a movie. It’s unlikely they’ll go with the show’s premise though. To hell with all the work Eddie Murphy and crew did on those movies as well! MONEY!
Just one more, I promise. I know it hurts. Hang in there. Universal says they plan to reboot THE MUMMY, because the last two movies in that franchise were so phenomenal. There aren’t too many details to get wrapped up in — nyuck nyuck — other than it comes out in April of 2016. Oh, and it’ll be produced by two of Who Asked You?’s least favorite people.
You may have heard the awesome…. ly bad idea that Amazon wants to deliver packages in autonomous drones. This would be small orders like books and DVDs. They would use octocopters equipped with GPS to fly your Amazon Prime Air order right to your front yard in as little as 30-minutes! This sounds cool, in theory. But it’s just not very practical. The batteries on these guys are only good for about 15-minutes, there are no FAA regulations for unmanned drones to fly in our already overcrowded air space and who’s to say assholes won’t be outside shooting these things down and stealing your shit?
After analyzing over 600,000 phone calls to various customer service desks, TheAtlantic.com and Marchex Institute found that Ohio is the most profane state. About 1 in every 150 calls to a customer service department contain at least one cuss word. Ohio is also one of the least polite. They rank in the top-five for not using ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ during their calls. Washington was the most courteous. Charlie, who works in a technical support environment tells us about one customer that’s so bad, they’re all aloud to hang up on him whenever he goes nuts on the phone.
And in Breaking News, Florida families out to see Disney’s FROZEN were treated to a sex scene from an R-rated movie instead of the Mickey Mouse short that was supposed to precede the film. Some parents rushed their kids to the exits as though there were a fire while others simply covered their eyes for the nearly two-minutes of raunchy action. The movie theater apologized for the mistake and gave everyone free tickets for their trouble.
What would one do with JUST the cheese packets from a box of macaroni and cheese? This is the question we wrestle with at the end of today’s show. A 20-year-old wrestled with his dad after the man confronted his son about the missing packets. The argument led to the son punching his pop in the face. By the time police arrived he had his son in a headlock. Was he using the packets in another recipe? Was he doubling up on the cheesiness of his elbow pasta? Or was he snorting the powder as suggest by the chat room? We may never know. The real reason may just be, incon’cheese’able.
