55 In the News

I'll go ahead and do a Flash 55 today. Let’s focus on hot topics in the news…

Seems Tiger Woods has a drive bigger than his golf drive…his sex drive!

Funny, I never knew Adam Lambert was on Survivor but apparently he just got voted off ABC island…

Should the bid to buy out NBC finalize, rumor has it Comcast will be putting in a bid for the rest of the world

Too much news, too early.

Great 55.

God bless.

Mrsupole said...

Oh I forgot!!!!

FOA

Dr.John said...

Comcast can't do worse than is being done now.
Fine 55

I have finished my 55.
You’ll find it
HERE.
.
But it’s a groaner.

Hootin' Anni said...

Awwwwwwwww, Poor Tiger. Looks like he found a 'hole in one'. Or two....maybe more.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Mine's here if you scroll down a bit...Cold...but warm wishes

clean and crazy said...

this is so funny!! you are wicked!! i like survivor!! great 55 mine is up too

Nessa said...

Very topical 55. I just left Comcast. I'm in trouble now.

Flash 55 - Love

Roy Scribner said...

One foot on the brake and one on the has - hey! Admit it, VE, you've still got this tape.

Quirkyloon said...

Three questions.

Who is Tiger Woods?
Who is Adam Lambert?
Who or what is Comcast?

Ha!

Hootin' Anni said...

VE Wow, there for a minute you threw me off course. You see, when you posted your comment on my blog that you're in Portland and expecting snow too on Sunday...well, I was ready to drive over to meet you. Thing is...Texas has a "Portland" also...just over the bridge from us here in Corpus...about a 10 minute drive!! LOLOL

VE said...

mrsupole - That's what you get for never sleeping! And remember...it was only 55 words of news...

dr john - I agree...ughh

hootin' anni - Ha! I'm afraid he's into this deep!

clean and crazy - I couldn't help myself. I blame my gnomes...

nessa - Oh no...you are not going to be one with the world soon...

roy - Sshh...don't tell anyone.

quirkyloon - This only proves you are not from this planet! ;)

hootin' anni - Ha! That would be a long drive! I knew there were other Portlands (beside the one in Maine)...I just never knew anyone near them. I know snow is more uncommon where you are. It's actually surprising to a lot of people that Portland, OR doesn't get much snow. We are just over an hour away from Mt. Hood and they keep about 8-10 feet on the ground all winter! We just have this valley that doesn't seem to get too cold for snow. Now rain...don't even go there...

Elizabeth said...

I'm with Quirky, except I do know who Tiger Woods is. The other two, no idea. But I'm going to go google Adam Lambert now.

g-man said...

The policeman interviewing Elin Woods, asked her how many times she hit Tiger. She thought for a moment, then said.."Put me down for a Five"!

Thanks for playing today VE.
Excellent 55!
Have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Jacki said...

I just read online that Tiger is going to have to pay his wife a hella lot to stay with him. I don't know if those rumors are true or not, but if I were his wife it would take A LOT to keep me. I have always told Peter that if he messes around on me I will sell his beloved truck to a bunch of Mexicans for a dollar.

Brian Miller said...

nice 55 ripped right from the headlines VE...

mine is up!

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I moved up two more places on your blog roll! WooHoo!!!! Now I need to plot the fall of the others...waaahhhhaaahaaa!

ReformingGeek said...

I like Jacki's approach to the cheating.

Tiger needs to trade his golf club for a shovel.

Happy Friday!

VE said...

elizabeth - Taylor Swift is a country/pop singer that won a record youngest country music singer of the year award this year and was also the one that Kayne West rudely interupted her acceptance speech to plug his girlfriend when she didn't win. Vampires are these mythical creatures with a bazillion books and movies. The health bill won't pass. Miley Cyrus is Disney's teen queen with irritating pop music. Her father is a wanna-be famous country singer that had a one hit wonder with achy breaky heart (or something like that. Adam Lambert should have won the last America Idol but they tend to rig those and so he got second. He's under scrutiny right now for some lewd staging a music award show and ABC has banned him from some appearances on their shows. Sarah Palin you know well enough.

g-man - Ha! Good one. Yes, he is providing much humor fun lately...

jacki - Ha! I like your approach. Can I be the first to buy the truck for a dollar? (just kidding)

brian - I shall go check it out...

perpetual chocoholic - I saw that! I don't know that you'll make any more progress though because the year is nearly out and I probable only have 15-20 posts left from which to do it...

reforminggeek - Good one. I don't think his dad would approve of his new lifestyle...

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

Do you take bribes;-)

Baino said...

Ah I went there with Tiger this weekend. No idea who the others are. Clearly Mr Woods should keep his woods in his golf bag.

Gladys said...

Once again the gnomes ate my comment. So here I go again.

Worst Drive Tiger ever made.

Comcast? What is that? (we don't have cable can you tell?)

Adam Lambert but no Pretenders? What are they too last week?

Monkey Man said...

Yes, the weekend update. My 55 is HERE.

Elizabeth said...

Thanks! I work in an elementary school so I've heard some of those names, mostly Hanna Montana, but we don't get broadcast TV so I really don't know who they are. We just watch videos so right now I know all about the Wiggles and Ni Hao Kai-Lan!!

subby said...

I've already negotiated with Comcast for a cut on the royalties, but I'm not at liberty to talk about the particulars...NOT!

Janna said...

Yay! I did Friday 55 too. :)

I've tried not to pay too much attention to the whole Tiger Woods affair thingy. Is it safe to presume that everyone else has already thought up all the "good" jokes involving strokes and balls and "holes-in-one"?

Ronda Laveen said...

Nice 55. Looks like Tiger's in the
"rough" these days.

hope said...

I can't top Baino's comment. :)

So GE's "We bring good things to life" means they're now dying and selling out?

Thanks for making news fun!

Jaime said...

i'm sick of tiger already. and we've only begun to hear this nonsense. so he screwed around on his wife. i don't care if he bagged a different woman in every state. why is this news?

Uncivil said...

I hope Tiger doesn't go O.J. on us???

Kurt said...

Unfortunately, no matter how you try not to pay attention, you end up hearing about Adam Lambert.

VE said...

perpetual chocoholic - I do...but I just take the money and don't follow through...

baino - As if 90 million a year isn't enough to occupy his time...

gladys - Ha! I'll agree with you there...

monkeyman - Thanks, and welcome.

elizabeth - Thank GOD I don't know the Wiggles anymore. Good luck with that! ;)

subby - Good move. I hope you got free HBO and On-Demand in the deal...

janna - There are only so many good Tiger Woods jokes and this will run through them all I'm afraid...

ronda - You mean he might only make 50-60 million next year instead of 90 million?

hope - Apprently they bring good things to life only to kill them off later...

jaime - Sensationalist is all you get in the news these days. Even the blurbs I get on yahoo have to be clicked several times to get an actual story. Nobody bothers to write anything because nobody has the time to read or listen. It's a spiraling vicious circle...

uncivil - If he does, they could play the "Odd Couple" in prison...

kurt - I barely found you down there after getting spammed twice! I did like Adam Lambert's version of Mad World when he did it on American Idol. I don't know how I managed to watch that since I avoid that show at all costs...

Maureen said...

Love Adam.

Hate Tiger.

Don't have Comcast up here.

Hey, that was easy.

VE said...

maureen - See...you brought it down to 9 words...
