NOT the Blue Waffle we’re talking about

For the good of soul, heed our warning/show title this week. Sure, it’d be nice to think a blue waffle is nothing more than a few droplets of food coloring in some batter… but this spirit-crushing Internet phenom is anything but. It’s been around for quite awhile, but to the best of my knowledge, I don’t think it’s ever come up on our show before. This hued-heinousness comes up during our final moments of this episode. We’re exchanging gift ideas. And one of the gifts is dye for your pubic hair. If you’re unaware of what a Blue Waffle is… there’s a clue.
There’s plenty of other gifts on that list. But before that, there are a few other bits of news to tell you about first. Most importantly, Dennis’ quest for a Twinkie has come to an end. He finally obtained two of the precious pastries and brought them both — unopened — to the show. He ate one right in front of us and then left it up to the chat room to see who got the other. Was it Mike? Or Charlie? Maybe it was JB. Or perhaps twas me? Tune-in to find out who was gifted this little Christmas miracle.
In one of Disney’s hands is the teet of the STAR WARS franchise about to be milked yet again. In the other is their own TRON franchise about to see a third yank. Garrett Hedlund, the guy who played Flynn’s son, Sam plans to reprise his role. And Joseph Kosinski will once again direct. He says they’ve got a great idea and it all comes down to the execution at the script level… soooo, it’s gonna suck. If Hollywood has shown us anything in the past several years it’s that the talent pool for writing has dried up. To be a WGA member these days you simply need to contort an old toy, comic book or cartoon into a cookie cutter screenplay eligible for desperate green lighting automatically by any given studio. Now we here at Who Asked You? are in the minority, and not cuz we have three black guys on our crew, but because we enjoyed TRON LEGACY. But, we’ve learned through numerous disappointments that one good sequel doesn’t mean the third will be too.
You wanna know what’s really disappointing? Michelob’s sales numbers. The beer that’s been around since the 1890s ain’t doing too good. And there’s eight other brews that are right there with it. Today, we’ll bring you a list of the nine American beers Americans no longer drink compiled by the folks at 24/7 Wall Street.
Is Santa Claus a Democrat or a Republican? American’s were polled to find out. On one hand, he thinks of others and hands stuff out for free without considering the financial or economical impact, so he could be a Democrat. On the other he only gets things done one day a year and he’s old, white and fat… so he could be Republican. We’ll tell you what those polled thought about his political affiliation as well as what percentage of folks would tell their dads if they saw ol’ St. Nick slippin’ mom the tongue. Also, would you press charges against him if his reindeer ran over your grandma? You might be shocked at just how many people would. More shocked than you are to learn this poll was even conducted.
After all that, it’s the gift guide bit and the Blue Waffle. I capitalize it because, thanks to the Internet, I think it’s become a proper noun. Be sure to do the same when you search for it. But seriously, don’t search for it. If you do, you’re in for a ‘blue’ Christmas. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
