Awarding Excellence in Andydom: The Andy Awards

Awarding Excellence in Andydom: The Andy Awards
I thought it was time to honor some famous Andys with the Andy Awards. At first it may seem like these are awards were arbitrarily made up and awarded to every famous I could think of, and that is exactly correct. So here are the 11 Best Andys I could think of.

Top 6 Randys of TV and Cinema

<strong>#6 Randy "The Macho Man" Savage</strong><br><br> Not only is he a randy savage, but he is also a macho man on top of that. <br><br>Mr. Savage was a household name in the early 90's and It's fair to say that every male between the ages of 25 and 36 has imitated the Macho Man in one way or another- possibly with a flying elbow, an "Oooh Oooh yee--uh", a "Snap into a Slim Jim!" or pointing to your cheek where you want the Lovely Elizabeth to kiss you. In a world filled with randy savages, he was truly a macho man.
While Randy is a pretty common name here in the States it is rarely used for TV and movie characters. It’s possible that producers avoid the name for fear it will alienate British audiences since Randy means something like “amorous” or “frisky” over there, or maybe they avoid naming anyone else Randy because they know...

Top 4 Vins in America

<strong>#4 Vin Diesel</strong><br><br> Even though his real name is Mark Sinclair, I still felt he earned a spot on this list.  It may also be worth noting that every Vin I could think of made this list.
How many Vins can you name? Not a Vince, Vincent or Vint, but Vin. I was able to come up with only four, so I ranked them.

Black Friday Violence Fantasy League Rules

Black Friday Violence Fantasy League Rules
Are you tired of thinking, “Sure, I am as amused as anyone when it comes to hearing about fights or stampedes on Black Friday, but I just wish I could somehow make money from them.”? I used to be as well, and then I started my all-new (not just partially new) Black Friday Violence Fantasy... Read more »

19 Halloween Costumes That are Ebola Puns

19 Halloween Costumes That  are Ebola Puns
After reading this Mashable list of punny Halloween costumes, I was inspired to think of a few more relating to Ebola. My thinking is that everyone will recognize the ubiquitous microscopic picture of the Ebola virus (shown above), so if you can craft that out of yarn, string, ribbon a shoelace, stuffed panty hose, etc....

Where my previous lists about Women in Songs dealt with tragic, sexy and virtuous women, this list identifies women more... Read more »

The 6 Women in Songs Who are the Best Marriage Material: Day 3 of Women in Songs Theme Week

<strong>6. Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond</strong><br><br>Sweet Caroline got the nod at #6 because the good times never seemed so good; any time a woman can bring you to your highest highs, you have to think about wife'ing her up. <br><br> With such  high praise, I knew they'd make a happy couple but then when Neil sang that his nights don't seem so lonely and that, "We fill it up with only two", I knew their relationship was going to last .
Day One: Tragic Figures Day Two: 10 Sexiest Women in Songs Today I’m tackling the subject of which women from songs who would make the best wife.

The 10 Sexiest Women in Songs: Women in Songs Theme Week Day 2

<strong>10. Mary Jane from Mary Jane's Last Dance by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers</strong><br><br> Being from Indiana, I am biased to her growing up in Indiana town with some Indiana boys on an Indiana night. But what's objectively awesome writing is that, "She moved down here at the age of 18, she blew the boys was more than they'd seen".<br><br><iframe width="420" height="315" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Things Your Annoying Friends can do or Appreciate on a Deeper Level Than You

<strong>Sports</strong><br><br> Like most men, I enjoy talking about sports. But everyone has that one (or more) friend who speaks with a ridiculous amount of authority on the topic. Among their go-to moves:
- When you complain about your team's poor performance, they correct you about what their problem REALLY is. <br><br>
- When a problem is identified they assert they've been saying that for a while, and imply that they clearly see things the coach doesn't and they would make a better coach. <br><br>
-Argue vigorously in un-proveable hypotheticals, usually with a historical backdrop.  Would Sandy Koufax's fastball be effective in this era? Would Wilt Chamberlain be as dominant in today's NBA? Would the Steeler's Steel Curtain defense contain Joe Montana's offense in it's heyday? Only your friend can say for sure, and it's certainly worth debating because we may one day find out once and for all. <br><br> Ok, no it's not worth debating because it's impossible to ever ascertain the answer.
Some topics bring out the most annoying traits in people. For instance, if you were on an airplane and could select which topic NOT to discuss with the stranger sitting next to you and your choices were: Monkeys, sandwiches, politics, or movies; I bet most people would opt to omit politics from the discussion.
