Morning Edition - 12/7/06

It’s Not Just Your Breath
Taco Bell ordered its 5,800 U.S. restaurants to remove all scallions from the eatery after an independent lab found the green onions in the establishments were covered with a dangerous strain of E-coli. "In an abundance of caution, we've decided to pull all green onions from our restaurants until we know conclusively whether they are the cause of the E. coli outbreak," said Greg Creed, president of Irvine, Calif.-based Taco Bell. To date, five people remained hospitalized – some with kidney damage – from their fast-food foray with the across-the-border treats from Taco Bell that resulted in the E-Coli outbreak. E-Coli is found in the feces of humans and animals and is most associated with undercooked meat.

Insert This Just Over Your Pie Hole
Researchers say our bodies do not crave what we can’t smell or taste. With that theory in mind, a new study is underway to develop a nasal spray that will block smell and taste and thereby help treat obesity. The FDA has granted Compellis a patent to develop the first-ever calcium channel blocker used in nasal formulation – a nasal spray. If you can’t smell it or taste it, maybe you’ll stay away from it.

Ladies in Red
The White House holiday reception turned into fashion hell as Laura Bush joined the party to find three other women wearing the exact $8,500 red Oscar de la Renta gown. Unfortunately, Laura had already had the annual photo taken in the gown and was left to make a quick decision – wear the darn thing with the pack and look like a bad girl group or slip away and change into something no one else was sporting. Always the politically correct diva, Laura dashed upstairs and made the quick change. Of course her guests didn’t have the luxury of doing the same. This is the first time in history that any first lady joined the festivities to find a guest wearing the same gown she had chosen for an event.

On Blast
If holiday wishes could come true… Poof… you’re granted the ability to make a quick decision – a wish of sorts. You are given the opportunity to:
Be strikingly beautiful
Be brilliant beyond your imagination
Be magnetically charming
Now remember, no cheating. You can only choose one. Which would it be and why? Assume that your choice will be permanent and life-lasting.

Keep passin’ the open windows…

WOW! Be strikingly beautiful, Be brilliant beyond your imagination,
Be magnetically charming; ie; be me, be me or be me. Well...I would wish for "world peace".

Happy Holidays my peeps...I miss you gals and guys big time. Christmas hugs and New Year kisses, PEACE! J'Moo

You know the saying… you always want what you don’t have… so, I’d opt for strikingly beautiful. I think I have the pretty bright and charming part covered… or maybe I’m as diluted as J’Moo… cuz, no offense bruh, but you ain’t got bases loaded on this one! LOL

Hey, where the f*ck are all my peeps at?! Where is the love?

Okay… okay… I need to share the joke that almost had me bust my friend Herbie in the mouf on Sat…. he ran up to me at the club and said, “Santa is outside looking for you” … I could barely hear him over the music, so with a Rose Nylund look I asked, “Santa is looking for me?!” He yells over the crowd, “Yeah, he was just yelling ‘ho, ho, ho…”

Be brilliant beyond your imagination..I think this is better than being strikingly beautiful or charming. I consider myself a beautiful woman and charm comes from who you are inside. Anybody can be charming.

Since we are sharing jokes....here is one my friend sent to my phone the other day.

I asked Santa for a condom, I got 3. I asked for a dollar, I got 10. I asked for a ho, ho, ho and I got this number! Lol......I thought it was funny, LAUGH!

Aahahhahahahaha...Santa is looking for you...ho, ho, ho. On blast: I would choose magnetically charming because I won't need the looks because I've drawn you in with my charm and I won't need to be brilliant beyond my imagination because I would charm the pants off of any scholar. Ok so now how to get rid of them?

If I had to make a choice it would be mo' phine. I don't lack in the other two areas but, I think I could look much better. I would like to carry two canons, tights that god molded from steel plates, pecs that made an ‘A’ cup hold on for dear life and a chiseled face that could stop wonder woman in her invisible plain over the Atlantic Ocean.

Awww... I'm going to step out on faith and assume that the last compliment was intended for me... in which case... thanks! LOL.... every now and again I get one of those... a compliment that is! :)

does magnetically charming compensate for the other 2???

And that was the Kennedy Center Honors reception not a holiday party. And philanthropist Vicki Sant was quite upset about the "wardrobe malfunction".

Cocoa Rican said...

Actually Redmann, it was a holiday reception at the White House that occurred just before the Kennedy Center honors...

"To avoid embarrassing her guests at the White House reception before the Kennedy Center Honors, Bush quickly slipped into a black lace gown."

Uh...I got this pa...but thanks.
