We’re talking about Strawberry Quick, and no it’s not a drag queen. The newswires are ablaze as people are talking about artificially fruit-flavored, sweeteed sweetened crystal meth as a way for drug dealers to sell meth to kids. I’m not sure if they are just copying the tobacco and liquor companies, or this is just a way of driving interest in the drug among users.
It’s not like you need a marketing campaign to sell crack. Like Chris Rock said in his show “Bring the Pain:”
“Drug dealers don’t sell drugs. Drugs sell themselves. It’s crack. It’s not an encyclopedia. It’s not a f**king vacuum cleaner. You don’t really gotta try to sell crack. Ok? I’ve never heard a crack dealer going “Man, how am I gonna get rid of all this crack?!”
We just saw Spiderman 3 and all I can say is I wish the wacky editor-in-cheif J. Jonah Jameson got his own film, or at the very least more on-screen time. Actor J. K. Simmons (the therapist on Law and Order and a gang leader on OZ) deliciously devours scenery with his cigar-chomping flamboyant arrogance. Having worked in newspaper publishing for over a decade, I personally relished every moment of the characters lunacy, weather it is in the Raimi’s Spider Man moives or when he reprises his role on the Simpsons.
Today we’re surprised as you may be to get a phone call from a long lost friend who used to be on the show! Who is it? Just listen and find out.
