And I'm like, "What?"
And he says, "You are the livermush guy, right?"
Me: Yeah, but you're on teevee. You're the E*Trade baby. Everybody knows you. You're famous...I just have a well-written and very clever blog.
ETB (enthusiastically): Yeah, well, I'm famous, but I wouldn't be much of an E*Trade baby if I lived in a cave, with nothing more than a dirty diaper. I have to stay on top of trends, you know?
Me: That makes sense. Thanks for noticing.
ETB: Speaking of living in a cave, it's time to bring back the cavewoman poll.
Me: You noticed that, too?
ETB: Dude, where do you think all your site traffic comes from, adults? And here's an idea for you: intead of regular actresses this time, how about using other recognizable TV personalities?
At this time, the E*Trade baby had to go back to the dining car for a meeting with his publicist. But, I promised to get his management folks a sample of pureed livermush and work up a new CW poll per his recommendations.
Tallying the responses from the last cavewoman poll was daunting. And we had our share of voter fraud, as you might have expected. Talk about some hanging chads. All I'm going to say is...new rule: one vote per crib.
The overwhelmingly popular choice from poll #1 was Scarlett Johansson. Or maybe that was just my choice regardless of the popular vote, I don't quite remember.
Here's the premise: I've got a wheelbarrow full of cash, and I want to do a remake of One Million Years BC. Who shall I cast in the leading role (Raquel Welch's Loana)?
Last go 'round, the choices included several big-name Hollywood actresses that any filmgoer would recognize. This time, however, to mix it up a bit, let's limit the casting call to females employed (on air) by the Fox News/ Fox Business channels.
Those of you who never stray far from your local news numbnuts may not be particularly familiar with this collection of talent. And if you haven't yet considered how Juliet Huddy or Courtney Friel might fill out a loincloth, now's your chance to free your imagination.
My short-list casting call might include, but not be limited to:
Megyn Kelly (although she's a lawyer and not a real person, I know there are folks who like her)
*Fox Business Network...If you don't get it. Demand it!
Feel free to write in anyone I've missed in the comments, and I'll launch the poll in the next week or so. All comments should be respectful to both the news
Thanks for the advice, E*Trade Baby!
