Steed Watch: Permanent Commando Edition

I know what you're thinking. The Steed tries to hang himself with his own underwear and I can't even muster up a sliver of time to write anything for my beloved Steed Watch segment. Well, I've been busy as balls with school and really haven't had any time to pander to the wants of an insatiable public. But there you go, The Steed tried to hang himself and although officials have not specifically stated he did so with his underoos, we can safely assume that he took a page from Cousin Ted's prison play book. On a related note, attempted suicide is nothing to joke about. I'm just reporting the news here.

*Odds and ends. Bits and Pieces. Scrap Metal. Particle Board. Random Musings*

In news that only Farmington, Minnesota cares about, Mountain Dew is running a promotion where they're asking the public to choose the next flavor, color and packaging of their new soda. They call it...wait for it...DEWmocracy! The operation looks ridiculously expensive, too, and includes such things as a live action movie (directed by Forest Whittaker!) and a virtual world for the nerds out there who need to meet and interact with other Dew drinkers living in their parents' basements. My prediction: leave the choice of a new soda flavor up to the Mountain Dew drinkers with such discriminating tastes and you'll likely end up with something that tastes like like crap, just like the original. I give the soda one summer before it's buried next to Crystal Pepsi, Surge, New Coke, Coke II, Pepsi Edge, and Slurry BetaCola ("Three times the sugar and caffeine as sugar and caffeine!").


That's it for me, but I will leave you with one final prediction in the spirit of upcoming holiday season: Aqua-dots won't be this year's Furby.

Are you saying the Surge was bad? If you are, we aren't friends. What about OK Soda?

Mountain Dew came to my campus with this racket. I took a free dew and got extreme with my policy memo.
