PUTTING THEIR TWO SHOES DOWN:  Amazon Prime has added a perfectly reasonable disclaimer to its Tom and Jerry cartoons, and some people don't get it:
"Tom & Jerry" shorts may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While not representing the Warner Bros. view of today's society, these shorts are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed.

PARENTHETICAL OF THE YEAR NOMINEE:  Congratulations,, for your article today relating NY Football Giants defensive back Antrell Rolle's comments on how devout teammate Prince Amukamara's off-season marriage, ending his life of celibacy-by-choice, changed him on the field:
"There are a lot of things different about Prince. For one, he's married, so he's (enjoying some things that he wasn't experiencing before he's married). For a man, that could definitely help him out. For a man ... I'm just being honest ... it's helping him out. He walks around with a little more swagger, which is something that we need, which is something that we love," Rolle said.

TENDER AGE IN BLOOM:  With Fall upon us, it's homecoming season (at least in the South), and we look at the uniquely Texan tradition of the Homecoming Mum.
THREE RIVERS, OR ONE BAY? PRIMANTI'S, OR THAT GUY WHO BEAT IRON CHEF SAKAI?  Because last night was clearly not enough drama and shouldn't have happened, let's ask again: Pittsburgh, or San Francisco?

I FEEL LIKE IT WANTS TO BE MACARONI AND CHEESE, AND IT WANTS TO BE CAKE. IT JUST DOESN'T KNOW WHICH ONE IT IS YET:  Some gentile Buzzfeed staffers try traditional Jewish foods for the first time.
I WILL DROWN MY SORROWS IN A BOWL OF COCOA PEBBLES:  This past weekend, the CW broadcast the last block of Saturday Morning cartoons on network television.  This weekend, there will be none.

Looking back on the included Saturday network schedules, I'm shocked and appalled that I ever would have watched "Godzilla" instead of yet another Bugs Bunny re-run.

FINALLY, UNLIMITED BREADSTICKS:  Governor Pat Quinn is pleased to announce that finally, an Olive Garden has arrived within the city limits of Chicago.  No word on if he's taking sides in the ongoing proxy fight over management.
