quote of the day (December 3, 2008)

Well, nothing like staying on a roll. In larger terms, this is 2 posts in 21 days (a Buddy Biancalana-like .095 posting average). However, we're very streaky at QOTD. This is 2 posts in 2 days, for a Pujols-like 1.000 average.

Today we'll be lighter on the mustache stuff, although we will have our Mustache Moment in a bit.

First of all, you might have heard about Dallas Stars (NHL) agitator Sean Avery's suspension-inducing brilliant commentary about his ex-girlfriend Elisha Cuthbert, who is currently dating the Calgary Flames' Dion Phaneuf. This gives us an excuse to put a picture up of the lovely Ms. Cuthbert:

She is quite easy on the eyes, but not for fans of 24, who have suffered through her performance as Kim Bauer, Jack's dopey daughter. From today's Pardon the Interruption, QOTD favorite Tony Kornheiser had some comments about her character from 24, even mentioning her famous encounter with a mountain lion:

"She was kidnapped 3 times in 24 hours. Yes. 3 times in 24 hours! Anyone who watched 24 in the first season was rooting for the mountain lion to eat her."

(QOTD note: the mountain lion attack happened in season 2. but we were still rooting for the lion)

Washington Post writer Hank Steuver had more fun with this article about Kim's stupidity. Definitely worth a read.

Now for today's Mustache Moment:

Brad Pitt was quoted this week as wanting to bring back the mustache: "That's my goal. I don’t think 'staches are respected enough. It's political. It’s a political statement."

If two winners of People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive have mustaches, why do I still get laughed at when I walk into a Quizno's with my shaggy 'stache?

Second-to-last Mustaches for Kids checkpoint tomorrow night (Thursday) at Angry Ale's Bar & Grill. $5 gets you free Bud Light drafts until the keg is dry after 7pm, with all money going to the charity. Hope to see you there!
