New Gas…


Gas Gadget Gives Glorious Gazings


According to the Onion, “Netflix unveiled its brand-new fume-based streaming service Monday, finally allowing its nearly 26 million worldwide subscribers to instantly inhale multiple seasons of their favorite television shows in just one sitting, company sources confirmed.”

“With Netflix Gas, we’re really hoping to tap into a demographic that’s a little more fast-paced, a little more on-the-go, and that just wants to sit down whenever they have the chance and breathe in three or four seasons of, say, Fringe in less than 10 seconds,” said company spokesperson Brian Cohn.

“The new service is $11.99 per month and comes with a complimentary Entertainment Mask that fits comfortably over users’ mouths and—via a combination of nitrous oxide, vaporized ether, and the gaseous state of the entire series of Sports Night—allows them to transmit all 45 episodes of the show directly into their bloodstreams and into their brains.”

“Frankly, we think this distribution model is going to be the future of how Americans watch television.” Reports indicate that the media company has already approached director Sam Mendes to create an original drama series based on the life of Al Capone solely for Netflix Gas.”


A season of TV in gas?

Getting caught up with the past;

You breath TV in,

And sit with a grin,

I think it’s something I’ll pass.

A whole season in just a whiff,

Can TV be something you sniff?

You sit in a chair,

And breath in the air,

You can have “Fringe” in a jiff!

Netflix has got this new deal,

To me it doesn’t seem real;

Twelve shows right away,

Instead of a day,

To some it will have great appeal.

Elderly Edythe Evokes Emotions

At 105 years young, Edythe Kirchmaier is Facebook’s oldest user. In fact, when she signed up to the site last year, Facebook had to recode its system to recognize 1908 as a birth year.

This news made her somewhat of a celebrity, gathering more than 123,000 Likes, and appearances on The Tonight Show and The Ellen DeGeneres show.

Her publicity also was great for Direct Relief, a charity that Kirchmaier donates most of her time to.

So when word spread that Kirchmaier was having car troubles, the Internet responded.

One man decided to send her a brand new Honda Civic after reading a post that she was having car troubles, which would take away from her time at the charity.

Driving at a hundred and five,
It’s amazing that she is alive,
She had an old car,
That wouldn’t go far,
Now she’s got a new one to drive.

She’s the oldest one on Facebook,
Don’t believe it? Just take a look,
She’s been on TV,
For people to see,
What’s next? Will she write a book?

Tubers Turning To Timely Transmissions

A new study revealed that more people are turning to YouTube to see “eyewitness accounts” of events in the news.

I guess nothing escapes the eyes of vigilant YouTubers.

Now anyone can be a News Anchor, (aka Talking Head).

Just get your camera or phone and start recording.

You never know what will go viral these days.


More people use YouTube for news,

I guess they like different views,

They watch an event,

As soon as it’s sent,

Just watch, you have nothing to lose.

Your HORROR – scope for the week of Jan. 13th, 2013

This week the planets in the Celestial Sphere were a bit more difficult to interpret, but we managed to get it done.

We hope these forecasts will alert you in sufficient time to avoid any unfortunate outcomes.

Thank you for following our predictions.

Stay alert.


Aries… Venus is on the cusp with Mars. You will have the urge to float, buy a boat, and gloat

Taurus… Mercury is rising now, especially in the Southern Hemisphere.  This week, you may be troubled by a lounge lizard, a computer wizard, and a chicken gizzard.

Gemini…  Uranus is in retrograde now. Taking your medicine with a spoonful of sugar is fine, but stop swallowing the spoons.

Cancer… Mars is trine with the Earth now. This week you may encounter a box, some locks, a variety of clocks, and the Dennis Miller Show Call Screener.

Leo… Jupiter is aligned with the Moon. This week, be aware of your shins, and evil twin, and a crazy grin.

Virgo… Saturn is square with Mars. Stop shouting, “Wombats are wonderful” in social situations.

Libra… The sun is trine with Venus now. You will feel much discomfort after swallowing a flugelhorn.

Scorpio… The Earth is in its seventh house at the moment conferring with a realtor. You should know that your family loves you, but not as much as late night snacking.

Sagittarius… Pluto is trine with itself for some reason. This week, turn your attention toward a waiter, a gator, and The Equator

Capricorn… Uranus is in a favorable alignment with Venus now. This week you will find love in a cul de sac in Hackensack.

Aquarius… The moon is in transit now. You will awaken to find yourself trapped in an episode of a Sit-Com called, The Nanny.

Pisces…Neptune is in retrograde this week. Heed this advice. Stop bothering yourself. Otherwise, you won’t get anything done.


And remember what Weird Al says about astrology in his song, “Your Horoscope For Today”:

“Now you may find it inconceivable or at the very least a bit unlikely that the relative position of the planets and the stars could have a special deep significance or meaning that exclusively applies to only you, but let me give you my assurance that these forecasts and predictions are all based on solid, scientific, documented evidence, so you would have to be some kind of moron not to realize that every single one of them is absolutely true.”

Blockbuster Busted by Better Broadband Broadcasting

Blockbuster, a subsidiary of the Dish Network,  ended its streaming video service.

It tried to compete with Netflix, but Dish couldn’t dish up a good product.

I wonder if it went down in a  hail of scrubbing bubbles.

I guess you could say that Dish was dissed.


Blockbuster is no longer streaming,

Success at it was onlydreaming,

It couldn’t best Netflix,

In spite of its best tricks,

And stock holders can be heard screaming.

Great Blogs Worth Checking Out

I just had to tell you about two wordpress blogs which I follow.

I highly recommend them. I ask you to recommend them as well.

I think they deserve a visit by anyone who visits Humorous Interludes.

The first one is travelingwithteddy. It’s at

If you like travel and food blogs, this is one of the best. It’s well written and has great photos.

The second one is ilovebritishtv. It’s at

If you like British TV, this is the blog to visit. It’s another well written and informative blog complete with appropriate photos. It highlights TV shows past and present,  made by Brits. in jolly old England.

A Hopper, skip and a jump.

Dish Network has been sued by Fox, CBS, and NBC over its Hopper DVR. The TIVO like device automatically skips over ads, cutting into broadcasters’ revenue.

God forbid we should miss an advert on TV.

Oh, where did I put that box of tissues? I’m going to ruin the new wood flooring with my copious tears for the networks.

I haven’t felt this bad since my last colonoscopy prep.


Dish has been sued for its Hopper,

It is a real ad stopper;

It skips over ads,

For me that’s not bad,

I won’t have to watch that floor mopper.



Here’s something I wrote a few years back. It was an entry for Video Maker Magazine’s, Short Video Contest. It won second prize. Its had quite a few views on YouTube over the years. It’s a spoof of late night TV commercials. Hope you like it.

CAVEAT…It’s not for the faint of heart. Animal lovers may not like it, but it’s part of the circle of life.

I hope this works. I haven’t tried to insert a video link before.

It’s called, “The Roadkill Grill”.


They’re everywhere.

This is for the birds.

No. You're confusing us with that TV famiily from the 70s.
