The Jane Ellen Experience Podcast Summary # 148 Fri 10.02.09

Groucho Marx consistently makes me laugh. Today would've been his 119th birthday. "I'm a different man behind a desk. Just ask any stenographer."

The movies out this weekend are Zombieland an R rated comedy with Woody Harrelson and Abigail Breslin and something about the last twinkie on earth. The Invention of Lying is a PG 13 comedy where Ricky Gervais directs himself as the only guy who has figured out how to lie. Jennifer Garner, Rob Lowe and Tina Fey are on board. And the Coen brothers have A Serious Man. An R rated comedy about a man whose life is spiraling out of control who seeks guidance from three rabbis.

Michael Jackson's autopsy was released. Seems he was basically healthy. He was 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighed 136 pounds. That's not underweight for someone of that height. He had a touch of arthritis. His hair was thinning a bit. But all in all he was a healthy 50-year-old who had trouble sleeping. What killed him was the concoction that was injected into him. Which actually makes it worse. Nothing can be done now of course. But I almost wish there had been something wrong, you know? Still sad situation.

If you're going to rob a bank, it always helps to have neat penmanship. Some chick on drugs tried to do it in Oregon but the teller told her she couldn't read the note. When the robber tried to rewrite it more clearly the teller hit the silent alarm. And so it ended. It was nice the robber only asked for $300 I thought. Not so nice she threatened to kill the teller though.

Do check in with the podcast. It's always entertaining. Well, it is to me. But it is my show so one would expect me to say that. Have a great weekend.
