Chubby Bunny

Proving once again you should never eat more than Health Canada’s daily recommended intake of marshmellow’s:

“Janet Rudd was just being helpful when she agreed to take part in what she thought was a bit of lighthearted fun — a marshmallow-eating contest known as chubby bunny at the Western Fair in London, Ont.

It was a decision that led to her death….

…A few minutes later, after putting four marshmallows in her mouth, Janet quit the contest and walked away from the stage. Fair officials say she spat out a wad of thick, white goop before leaving, and was 10 metres from the stage before she signalled for help.”

What is “Fishing with John”

David K. asks “What is Fishing with John”

John Lurie tricked Japanese television into bankrolling a fishing show.

Memorable quotes:

Narrator: [as Tom Waits puts a fish in his pants to “feel better”] Oh, my God.


Jim Jarmusch: Maybe somebody else should drive.
John Lurie: There’s nobody here but you and me.
Jim Jarmusch: I’ll drive.
John Lurie: You want to drive?
Jim Jarmusch: No.


Jim Jarmusch: So what are the great fish movies?
Jim Jarmusch, John Lurie: Jaws.


Narrator: The fishermen wake up excited to be alive. They hope for good weather and good luck. Both fisherman are covered with sores and boners.
