WHEATies: The Breakfast of Champions…Eventually

When will our grand “moment” in life happen? This is one of the biggest questions people want to know, along with finding our one true love. And for most people, both of these variables in life of paramount importance have no GPS option or Uber driver with an ETA. Nope, we’re the driver with no map on strange roads with no cell service in the making-it-up-as-we-go-along-in-the-dark approach.

Comforting? Not exactly. However, according to comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, patience is a virtue.

Plus, posing for a hilarious modeling picture will lead to your dream coming true…in 19 some odd years.

Congrats to Sebastian Maniscalco who finally made it to the big time in LA.

P.S. Find yourself some wheat this weekend and have your life changed!

The Ultimate Face-Off

Nicolas Cage needs to be a surprise guest star on The Big Bang Theory.

And by surprise, I mean a total surprise for the audience and Howard Wolowitz Simon Helberg. That way, Mr. Helberg’s castmates, who know his impression skills, would step aside and shine the brightest spotlight on these two actors taking center stage sitcom-style for a truly epic showdown of comedic talents starring Nicolas Cage and…Nicolas Cage.

This comedic duel would redefine the real Nicolas Cage’s famous 1997 film Face/Off.

Don’t believe that the world needs this specific pairing on primetime television?

Here’s a sample of Mr. Helberg’s work involving Nicolas Cage, as well as a couple other bonus impressions.

At some point during the upcoming season, Chuck Lorre should call Nicolas Cage, Billy Baldwin and Ben Stiller for an unforgettable “Sweeps Week” event.

And, if approached the right way, this golden TV moment could be as simple as A-B-C…

all the way to Z.

An Old School Story

Will Ferrell with a tiger face painted on is enough to get anyone’s attention.

But wait! If you keep watching and reading, there’s more!

Off the wall and goofy? Yes. Funny and entertaining? Yes.

But inspiring? Also yes.

I, like you, am still hoping that Will Ferrell will pull a similar prank at a Home Depot…on a Saturday, of course. And, if there’s time, he’d venture over to a nearby store.

Rest assured, if his professor friend is with him, then there would definitely be time for Bed, Bath & Beyond.

Swap & Pop, Said Fred

And you thought the only difference between East Egg and West Egg was money.

You can say “Gatsby,” where the vocal range is aimed up with a splash of authority or “Gatsbee,” where the vocal range goes exactly straight out with no hints of, well, anything.

SNL-alum and impersonating savant Fred Armisen has a special skill that involves detecting the molecular, distinguishing accents from country-country and city-city and, quite possibly, from neighborhood street-neighborhood street in the same community. If you listen carefully during the video clip (and in everyday life), we all speak with a unique dialect.

However subtle, it’s there.

We should all burnish our current skills at acute vocal observations of the human condition, especially the next time you travel throughout Germany.

Doug E. Doug is shaking his head in disappointment. Fred Armisen was clearly missing his lucky egg.
