Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, January 12, 2021

No one else I’ve tried this on tonight thinks this is funny. Regardless, I’m pressing on:

In consideration of NBC broadcasting this year’s Winter Olympics, I think the network should rebrand one of its hallmark shows, “The Biggest Loser”, thusly:

“The Biggest Luger”. As in luge, the winter sport.

I’m thinking it would involve a big fat guy getting greased up to slide around a treacherous track. Artificial or natural track, either way. Riders optional. Hey, I’d watch it. I’d watch it instead of either an actual luge event, or an episode of “The Biggest Loser”.

Like I said, no one else sees the humor in this. But what do they know? I say it’s funny. Even Larry Sanders-quality comedy.

UPDATE, THURSDAY JAN. 14, 2010 - In fact, this joke is Conan O’Brien-quality, as he used it on “The Tonight Show” last night. “Obese people on sleds”, indeed.

I’ll give Conan a pass on stealing this idea from me. Mainly because a) he probably didn’t steal it, as it’s such an obvious pun; and b) he’s got enough problems lately.

For a long time now, I’ve been kicking around the following quote inside my head:

Make a peace within you.

I could’ve sworn such a message would have emanated from the works of Ghandi, or even the Buddha. My research doesn’t bear that out, though; in fact, I can’t find any outside reference to it.

If that means I’m the one who’s invented this mantra-like aphorism, I’ll gladly take the credit. I mean, it’s no “Serenity Now!”, but it’ll do.
