Apparently my beard makes me look like Hank Scorpio

Posted By: Steve Adams · 2/1/2011 6:29:00 PM
As our staff beard-growing contest continues (read: becomes itchier), my beard seems to be coming in somewhat red. Which is weird, because my hair is light brown. Why the ginger beard? LTI has remarked to me that it's starting to make me look like Hank Scorpio, the super villain from the Simpsons. Which is, now that I think about it, probably one of the coolest characters you could ever be compared to.
A sampling of hilarious Hank Scorpio-related dialogue... (and, on a side note, why have they never brought that character back? Really now? Also, apparently that picture of me was taken with the same camera used to shoot the Busta Rhymes Woo-Hah! I Got You All in Check video)

Homer: Uh... you have any sugar around here?
Hank Scorpio: Sugar? Sure.

Hank Scorpio: There you go. Sorry it's ...


It's Manitoba Time!

Apparently, that's Travel Manitoba's new tourism slogan for our province - It's Manitoba Time.
Selected comments and opinions on the new slogan that came in over text and BBM...
- Stop! Hammer Time! Please, Manitoba, don't hurt 'em...
- I instantly thought Jersey Shore - it's T-Shirt Time!
- Its manitoba time!... Makes me think of a REALLY bad social that absolutely no one shows up to... 
- having manitoba time makes it seem like we run on our own time, like we are slower than other provinces or something
- It might be different once we see pictures that go along with it.
- What time is it Mr Wolf? ITS LUNCH TIME. 
- Its Miller Time! Oopsie I mean Its Manitoba Time! Our new slogan makes me wanna have a drink. 
- Why is a Vancouver Ad agency coming up with a Manitoba saying?? That's really ...

Britney Spears vs. Bellamy Brothers

Country duo The Bellamy Brothers are saying Britney's new hit Hold It Against Me shares some striking lyrical similarities to their 1979 single If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me... you be the judge.

Do you still call it the TD Centre?

Canwest Park will soon be known as "Shaw Park." Canwest Global Place is now going to simply be referred to as "201 Portage." I know a lot of people that still call it the TD Centre. So the topic came up this afternoon, what do you still call by its old name?
Some selected responses via text...
- I accidently called Walmart Woolco last week :)
- Manitoba Museum, still call it Museum of man and nature 
- Hi Steve. Mine is prob the worst. I still call channel 12/global...CKND. LOL.
- Cindy klassen recreation park - i still call it sargent park recreation center 
- I still and always will refer to the hockey rink on ellice as the Highlander and not the Can-Lan sportsplex.
- Revy instead of rona 
- Stereo, or whatever its called now will always be U4ia to me.
- Lipstixx? I still ...

She said YES!

Remember Kelly? The young man that loves to love? That wished for an engagement ring for his girlfriend with Ace and Chrissy's Wishlist? If you don't, or you'd like a refresher, you can listen to his wish, and watch a video of him picking out the ring here:
Well good news, Kelly's girlfriend said yes! Which would now make her his fiance. An email from Kelly...

Mr. Adams,

Thank you to both you and Colin once more for coming down on Sunday and my apologies for being so rambly as I was. If I knew what was about to happen after, I'd probably have been an absolute nervous wreck and frozen in the chair.

Two hours after we departed, I went off to Nicole's Family [read LOTS of family] Christmas Dinner in Charleswood. Her parents apparently had heard the wish being granted on Hot103 and were congratulating ...
