Good times with Mo (September 11, 2008)
Just a side note, I just noticed that today’s date is significant, if you will recall, the infamous 9/11 attacks occurred on September 11, 2001 or 7 years ago to the day… Those were definitely bad times…
Well, on to Good times… Today’s show on Good times centered on a rather controversial (some would say chauvinistic) book by author Gary Neuman, whose book, The Truth about Cheating: Why Men Stray and What You Can Do to Prevent It, has been a best seller and at the center of a maelstrom since its publication.
The author has been featured on Oprah and other high profile shows, thus feeding more fuel to the fire.
It espouses the following advice to women in order to keep their men from straying:
- Always forgive your man
- Provide sex on demand 🙂
- Lavish praise on your man for providing for the family
- Rarely letting him out on his own with friends or work colleagues
- Taking an interest in his hobbies
Now, I haven’t read the book but from my research, it claims that 25,500 faithful and unfaithful men were surveyed and based on these survey results the author arrived at the foregoing tips…
Grace Lee reacted negatively to all of the tips except for Tip# 5… And she’s not even married yet… 🙂
Predictably, a lot of the female callers were pissed with the so called tips…
Female caller 1: It demeans women and turns them into doormats…
Female caller 2: Sex should be a mutual thing and not be demanded like a service to be provided…
Male caller 1: Men don’t think of sex all the time (Mo disagreed, hehe)…
Well maybe 10% of the time, we think of food and booze but the rest would probably revolve around sex… 🙂
You can chime in your opinions on this topic in the comments section below…
There was a male creepy caller whose voice reminded me of Norman Bates in the Psycho movie, definitely serial killer material, who took offense to Grace Lee’s statement that men shouldn’t be praised for providing for their families. For a minute there, I thought he was the prank caller Mo used to punk Grace Lee… 🙂
Apparently, this caller calls only once a year (I’m not sure if it’s because of the significance of the date, hehe), but he argued that people do respond positively to praise and that a thank you doesn’t cost one anything. Grace countered by saying that oversaturation of thanks tend to dilute the value of the gratitude and might be coming automatically and is not heartfelt (or something to that effect).
Honestly, this discussion confused me because both parties would postulate a point and then retract it later… Talk about dizzying intellect… 🙂
Also a pet peeve of mine, mainly because I’ve almost gotten into several accidents with motorcycle drivers who seem to think that they are invincible… Not to sound elitist or anything, I would agree that they have the right to use the roads too, BUT, some responsible driving would be a big help in helping Mo and the rest of the car driving population like them at least a little bit… 🙂
Just to illustrate the point, Mo got into an altercation with a motorcycle rider who almost hit him when he was taking a turn, apparently the motorcycle rider was overtaking another car and almost blindsided Mo when he did his turn… He heard the P.I. word from the motorcycle rider and of course this pissed Mo off, he rolled down his window and when the motorcycle rider challenged him to a fight, Mo pulled over and waited at the curb for the driver to walk over to him… Then he threw an aerosol can at him… 🙂
Puss move? Yeah baby, but he got the last laugh… 🙂
Hottest Celebrity Showdown
Though I failed to catch the first part of the ABS-CBN hottest celebrity showdown bracket, blog reader Carlo, was kind enough to clue me in and I quote:
“The hottest celebrity showdown from ABS-CBN today was between Anne Curtis and Christine Reyes.
Even with Mo building up Christine somewhat, the result was a landslide victory in favor of Anne, with Christine only getting 1 vote from a particularly weird caller(creepy, rapist material. :P).”
Thanks Carlo, yeah, I guess today being 9/11 a lot of Ted Bundy types were calling… Must be something to do with the moon… 🙂
However, I did catch the the GMA bracket featuring the luscious Iwa Moto and the ethereally beautiful Iza Calzado… I had a good chuckle with the male callers who chose Iwa, one calling her beauty, “whore hot” and the other said it induced some leg dribbling action whenever he sees Iwa… Predictably, Grace reacted with “Ewwww…”
The final score was 5-3 with Mo and Grace both voting for Iza Calzado, with Mo giving extremely high praise to Iza saying she was the nicest person he’s ever met in GMA… High praise indeed!
Later, I’ll be blogging about last Tuesday’s episode of Good Times on Studio 23 with a lot of lesbo action from Grace and Andi, hehe… Krav Maga, yeah!
Till then, I’m out of here…
