hah… very clever
How much for a case? I’d buy one in a instant.
Best laugh of the day. Best news was Ben’s departure from NBC. Love Mondays that start like that!
I don’t know. It sounds tempting, but then there’s the risk of eating it and falling to fourth place in something.
And with him goes Teri Weinberg and the wannabe writers Abrams & Benson. They can hang together now and pretend they are actually in show business.
I LOVE IT! LOL!
May Ben Silverman be hosted on his petard!
Does this come 98% fat free?
The Hollywood Diet
The day that Ben decided to go ski in aspen that very weekend there was a major crisis in hollywood and his many buddies were getting canned, I knew his days were numbered, he showed no loyalty whatsoever
Sure he has had a few hits but He acted like he was David Geffen, Barry Diller, Lou Wasserman all rolled into one at since he was at NBC, I guess the pressure got to him and he flipped, btw to bad KINGS could not have been better, it was a good idea though
Hmmmm…. Clusterfuck…. *drool*
Sorry about that. Let’s look at the top 10 reasons Barry Diller may have for hiring Ben Silverman for this new venture:
1. He lost a poker game to the CEO of GE.
2. He owns a lot of NBC-U stock and needed to something to get it moving upward.
3. He needs an excuse if IAC blows up in his face.
4. Silverman’s crazy manic giggle just warms Diller’s heart like a basket of puppies.
5. Diller just got the DNA tests back, he is the father!
6. Diller needs a younger body to transplant his brain into.
7. Diller wants someone to teach him how to party hard.
8. Diller got tired of not being criticized on DHD every second day.
9. Two words: Whipping boy.
10. Once hired, Diller intends to replace Silverman with his evil twin from the negative universe. Evil Twin Silverman has a goatee, and can actually run a network. With Evil Twin working out great, all the blame will fall on Zucker, chaos will reign, and Diller will sweep in to take over NBC-U at fire sale prices.
Maybe you will single handedly clean up Hollywood.. These posers need reference
Get some REAL actors working, telling good stories.. not the EXTRAS they have playing leads now..i.e Megan Fox,Zac Efron, the whole cast of Star Trek, Star Trek, anything Katherine Heigl or Scarlett Johanasson particpate in, Ben Affleck, and any one who doesn’t do vocal warm-ups before they get on set.
It really is time to get these people gone and it starts with the bone heads at the top- Thanks Nikki!
ben’s pissed off just about every network head in town. he’d better have a “multi-platform” strategy because abc, nbc and cbs will not buy anything from this guy’s new company.
THat is a great illustration!
Wait a minute, did Arthur do this? If so, this is the sort of thing he should be doing. If not, you should hire this person.
Great graphics, and very funny,
It looks delicious.
love the graphic but i’d change “ice cream” to “ice scream.”
Barry Diller runs IAC as a cult of personality.
Complete dog sh*t of a company, but at least Barry and his pals made out well.
I sold my IAC stock a long time ago. I finally figured out that IAC is not about creating great companies and making money. Instead its a vehicle for Barry and his minions to come up with these partnerships that play to his latest whim.
I’m not saying that Diller was once a genius, I just think he’s lost his midas touch.
BREAKING NEWS: This flavor will no longer be used in county fair eating competitions as everyone using it has come in a 4th place.
Any guesses as to when Mr. Zuckered is Silvermaned?
Love it all but let’s be honest. While most of you are sitting at your desks, Ben is worth over $100 million and can do anything he wants the rest of his life. He beat the snakes and their own game and we should all appreciate that. That said, he’s got some folks at Reveille who walk the line of retardation. Those guys Ben was loyal to because without him they are not working in the business. Howard T. Owens III was never really an agent at WMA. He was promoted because Ben needed help and that is it. But did he make deals and do what an agent does? No way. So, he has made a living and will continue to as long as Ben keeps giving him work. Again, Ben should be appreciated for this. It’s really difficult to throw him under the boss when he doesn’t have to take the bus any longer. He’s richer, younger than most, better looking than the average guy so there is no way to beat him.
Where can I buy this???
