    Maybe he’s saving that Arby’s sandwich for tomorrow.

    Or maybe he’s dining ON an Arby’s sandwich IN Hell tonight, and dining IN Arby’s tomorrow.

    Or maybe that sandwich isn’t his, or it isn’t an Arby’s sandwich.

    I think you’re on to something::he’s planning to dine in-store tomorrow. and who’s to fault him: some Arby stores have pretty nice decor

    I always thought that giant hat looked like it belonged in Vegas instead of Podunk.

    I can’t stop laughing!

    I think we should start a “Los Thunderlads Post of the Year” contest. This is my early choice for 2009.

    I agree! I think of the Strip every time I see it.

    Great idea! Whichever post allegedly causes the most laughter?

    Maybe we could have categories, like most-laugh-inducing post or most-thought-provoking post or whatever. But I was just thinking of one prize, for Post of the Year.

    OK! Is this going to be unregulated? (I plan on buying votes, blocking votes, and stuffing the ballot box.)

  9. cymast

    Allegedly plan.

    I don’t propose to regulate it. Somebody else might, I don’t know.

    Allegedly! Of course.

    Lefalcon, is the background of that picture from German Village in Columbus, Ohio? And do you know if Schmidt’s Sausage House is still in operation there? Let me just say, I love Schmidt’s Sausage House. It’s even better than Arby’s! Don’t know if Richard Dreyfuss would like it as well, though.

    Let’s pool together our resources and pay thousands of dollars to a “consultant” who will “oversee” the “contest.” I don’t really agree with the philosophy of turning everything into a contest, because I think we already have way too much of that in our culture. However I do understand the spirit of this idea: that it would provide an impetus or “good excuse” for looking over old postings at year’s end and reflecting on what had been enjoyable. Maybe we could choose the top ten in each category and submit them for independent arbitration by a blog posting evaluation bureau. Again, we would pay them thousands of dollars for their “services.”

    I don’t know where that image came from, but I agree to its being humorous. I don’t know what the background setting is, exactly, but it looks like a European village or something.

    I was also going to comment that the superimposed Arby hat reminds me of a recent Captain Morgan rum advertising campaign, where they would superimpose a little beard on the photograph of a raucous partier. I just think the whole way they approach the marketing of Captain Morgan rum is so stupid. I certainly would not purchase the product. The point, however, is the strange way a crudely-drawn “hat” or “beard” is supposed to suggest that one has fallen under the “spell” of a certain product. It’s asinine, but I guess the marketing wizards know what they’re doing. I’ll leave them to their “work.”

    Most commercials are drivel, but a few are surprisingly entertaining. I think this one would be right for whomever that Arby’s guy is:

    Funny! I like the phrase “that technically are made of somebody else’s hair.”

  17. acilius

    I like the idea of a “top ten in each category.” Since we now have about 60 categories, that would be a pretty long list.

    I don’t have audio here, which is why I haven’t made some sort of witty and delightful remark in response to this link. I’m sure it’s interesting – but w/out audio these youtube segments just don’t have their full impact.

    My fav line is “Huh?”

    I wish they had found a role for Richard Dreyfuss in that commercial. He should’ve been the policeman. Not the one that speaks. The other one who’s just standing there not doing anything. That should’ve been Dreyfuss’s part. He was robbed.

    Big name actors should occasionally make cameo appearances in commercials. It would make the actors and commercials more interesting. Dreyfuss, of course, is interesting all by himself.

    Maybe Richard Dreyfuss could launch a whole second career, still as an actor, just with a new specialty. He would always take the part of the guy “who’s just standing there not doing anything.”

    That would be quite a radical departure from his work up to this point. I’ve always been impressed by Dreyfuss’ performances, he always seems to find a lot more in each of his roles than I could ever have imagined. So maybe it’s time he went the opposite direction and just stood around doing nothing.

    One advantage of that career would be the greater length of time it would be possible to pursue it. He could continue to take such parts for decades, even centuries. Maybe in the year 3000 Richard Dreyfuss could costar with Lenin in a remake of HOUSE OF WAX.
