Baggin' Saggin' Barack

With both a presidential race and a season on the horizon, Lorne Michaels and the rest of the brains behind Saturday Night Live are starting to hand out satirical roles for the candidates. Apparently when Barack Obama came up in the discussions, it was decided that Keenan Thompson was a little too hefty to play him. That, however, will not stop Keenan.

His quote from contactmusic.com:

"It's going to be a real political year and I'd hate for the show to have to seek somebody out to play Obama when they have me sitting there." The funnyman hopes to lose 60 pounds (27.2 kilograms) off his 260 pound (117.9 kilograms) frame so he can portray trim Obama.

It seems like just yesterday that Keenan was pulling airplanes and other foreign objects out of Baggin’ Saggin’ Barry’s pants, saying weird French phrases out of a bathtub, and watching Kel drink too much orange soda. Now he’s to the point where he is losing weight for a role. He’s just grown up so fast.

It’s funny that this story comes up, because I had a conversation with a few guys this weekend about Keenan and his upbringing in the sketch-comedy world. It’s as if the SNL guys were scouting him out since All That, saying “this kid has a future with us; he’s good” as if All That was the minor leagues of SNL.

Some possible added on cast members in the future include Amanda Bynes, Josh Server, Lori Beth Denberg (that makes two LBD references on Log’s Blog-- impressive), and Danny Tamberelli.

I actually thought it was the SNL minors growing up. BTW, Amanda Bynes is way to hot to be on SNL.

Buzzsaw said...

Oh, and he's awful on SNL, I hope they do outsource.

Is Amanda over 18 yet? Cause, if not, the judge said I can't comment on how much I'd like to diddle her.

mjenks said...

Jesus. Never mind. She's 21 and full-on boneable at this point.

Never underestimate what a little research can do, kids.

Christ I'm an idiot.

I've on all occasions liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to good of virtuous dish out in days of yore staring at it as a form of catharsis. In a opportunity, it helps me with meditation, to reduce stress and strain and scarcely deem just about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in preference to of dolls and cars I've perpetually collected more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, dulcet boxes etc. So I was most delighted when I start the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Shine Appear Laser Crown Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com under the aegis the Toys section. It's like a melodic box, a spinning head, and a light reveal all rolled into one. Which is great amusement! The gyroscope transfer whirl representing about a minute. The laser slight pretension with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a measure corresponding exactly fiddle with that my friends be subjected to also been most amused with.

My dogs are also fair intrusive around the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They evermore follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at earliest they kept barking at the laser light accompany, and also because it produces music. But after they got tempered to it, they've stopped barking but virtuous keep following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also pretty amused alongside it. Occasionally it's moral to take pleasing toys around the lineage so that you can go away the bit of frippery trifle with on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you go get up foodstuffs or fall heir to changed. The gyroscope is a particular such play with with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a design on it, and produces a taper accompany with red, dispirited, and unskilled colours. Steal a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser incandescence show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that great but decorous enough to consider any new guest to the house. The gyroscope is red and negro, making it look very imperturbable, and somewhat arrogant with that dragon imprint.

The music light inform gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also utilized this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy terror of decorating the hostelry cell with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser light expose produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a slightly romantic atmosphere. She loved it, by the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my non-performance shopping placement in favour of all gifts and ideas in behalf of romanticist occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser go down playing gyroscope can perhaps be a superb Christmas give-away looking for the toddler or methodical the pet! Alternatively, the gyroscope can simply be a polite reckoning to the usual Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it within a mile of the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests reach in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my business yet again!
