After Jimmy, of course...

"One of the weirdest moments of last night's Republican debate probably slipped completely under the radar for most viewers. This moment occurred in Herman Cain's closing statement, when the former pizza-chain CEO recited a favorite inspirational quote:

"A poet once said, 'life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it's never easy when there's so much on the line.'"

Nothing strange about that on the surface, until you Google the quote and you realize that these words of wisdom were uttered not by a poet, but by disco queen Donna Summer in her song "The Power of One." Even more bizarre, this isn't even one of Summer's classic hits — she recorded it just over a decade ago as the theme song for Pokémon: The Movie 2000.

"If we had to guess what happened here: Herman Cain saw the Pokémon movie with one of his grandkids in the summer of 2000 and was greatly moved by the "The Power of One." After a decade had gone by, he recalled the song and wanted to use it in his campaign, but he forgot where he heard it, mistakenly pegged it to the summer Olympics, and was too busy fighting the scourge of Sharia to look it up online. Then sometime in the past two months, he somehow came to believe that the song lyrics he had been quoting throughout the campaign were actually the words of some unnamed poet. It's not the most elegant explanation, but it's the only one we can come up with. "

:D :D :D

They are opening a Godfather's Pizza not far from where I work. I'll have to try it.

Yeah, I much prefer Pizza Hut to Dominoes, but local shops here are way better than either. Papa John's is probably my favorite of the national chains.

That's another one I haven't had although they've been around here for a few years now. Better ingredients, better pizza, Papa John's! 8)

::) I hate those commercials.

There are no Italians in Nebraska! >:( ;D

"If you don't like anchovies, you'll be sleeping with the fishes"

I don't think I've ever seen one of these commercials. They must air only in certain regions.

If they are well done I would probably get a kick out of them. ;D
