Charlotte, North Carolina – the “Queen City of the South” – has been named the MANLIEST CITY IN THE COUNTRY by Combos snacks.

We know.  Web Watch was shocked too.

This was the same city where the Carolina Panthers’ Fight Song was deemed too cheesy to be played after a touchdown.  No wonder the team struggled for a few years, even posting a 1-15 record one season.  What good is an NFL team without a Fight Song?

If you’re not getting enough sleep at night, perhaps it’s due to when you go to work each day.

According to a study by the Sleep and Performance Research Center at Washington State University Spokane,  YOUR WORK HOURS CAN DETERMINE HOW MUCH SLEEP YOU GET EACH NIGHT.

Can you name the top merchandised film of the past 18 months?

Profit from your Idea via Smart Licensing

Web Watch has previously covered HOW MUCH MONEY THE DISNEY CORPORATION MAKES ON POOH AND MICKEY MERCHANDISE, and it should come as no surprise that licensing of film characters — whether it be from any of the Disney-Pixar canon, to action heros, to Harry Potter, or to those appearing in the Twilight series — is all big, big business and massive money makers for those who hold the character licensing rights.

But can you name which are the TOP TEN FILMS WITH FILM MERCHANDISE over the past 18 months, based solely on the amout of imported licensed products that have been coming through customs (in other words, not counting anything made in the USA)?   Continue reading CAN YOU NAME THE TOP MERCHANDISED FILM OF THE PAST 18 MONTHS?

Movie Review: Toy Story 3

Rated G for being appropriate for all ages, and a must-see for everyone.  Remember, a “G” rating or that the film is animated does not mean that the film is intended to be seen only by children.
Rating: A+

TOY STORY 3 is the latest film from Disney-Pixar, and completes the Toy Story trilogy that had releases in 1995 and 1999.  While the first two Toy Story films were made four years apart, Web Watch will estimate that only 2 years of movie-time passed for the characters in the film.  On the other hand, Toy Story 3 was released 11 years after Toy Story 2, and the filmmakers decided to run the movie clock those eleven years as well – which means that it’s time for the toy’s owner, Andy, to head off to college.

You’ve had ’em growing up.  You’ve probably had one or two last week.

A pimple, zit, blemish, whitehead, blackhead, cyst, or other piece of acne on your face, shoulders, back, or butt.  Sometimes it’s due to a nasty ingrown hair, sometimes it’s just because your skin is a zit factory.

But did you know that some doctors say that POPPING YOUR ZITS CAN BE GOOD FOR YOU? Continue reading POPPING PIMPLES IS GOOD FOR YOUR MENTAL STATE — SO HERE ARE FIVE STEPS TO SQUEEZING THAT ZIT

Web Watch was eating dinner at a friend’s house the other day when Mom asked her 21-month-old daughter if she wanted to have NAKED TIME and run around the house. 

To those unfamiliar with the concept, “Naked Time” is not so much a way to encourage children to run around the house nekkid as it is to give a regularly-diapered butt some time to air out a little to help prevent diaper rash. Continue reading AT WHAT AGE SHOULD “FAMILY NAKED TIME” END?

The latest wedding day trend: Brides wearing a “Bridal Diaper”

Brides have it rough on their wedding day – for a day oft-celebrated as a Girl’s Happiest Day, the bride may not be celebrating as much as other members of her wedding party are.

The primary reason that you don’t see brides eating or drinking as much as they would like that day is not because they’re stressed out, or too busy to do so, or hopped up on tranquilizers.

No, it ends up that many brides choose not to eat or drink on their wedding day because THEY DON’T WANT TO USE THE BATHROOM WHILE WEARING THEIR WEDDING DRESS.  Some brides are taking their wedding undergarments to the extreme by wearing BRIDAL DIAPERS to help get them through the ceremony and reception.

Over 1,500 young adults (age 21-26) in America were recently asked about WHAT THEY EXPECTED TO HAVE HAPPEN BY THE YEAR 2050.

40% of those surveyed said that they expect the second coming of Jesus to occur by 2050.

On the other hand, 31% said that they believe an asteroid will destroy the Earth in the same timeframe.

Can you name 7 ways to mess up a wedding? Surprisingly “inviting Adam Sandler” is not on the list

Adam Sandler – They’re All Going to Laugh At You

Web Watch has had some wonderful wedding memories:

  • There was the wedding at the bowling alley during the Stanley Cup playoffs
  • The wedding where the bride proudly proclaimed to everyone within hearing distance how she wasn’t going to consummate the marriage that night… and why.
  • Getting the entire wedding party to lick the ice sculpture as a photo opportunity for the official photographer…after pretty much all the other guests have already done the same thing.
  • That wedding where we had to arrive six hours early to clean the bathrooms at the reception hall

And then there was the wedding where the DJ was asked to play the first 20 seconds – and only the first 20 seconds – of this NSFW song during the reception:

Seriously, that was a wedding to remember. And all of the above — good friends, and good times all. 

And no, we won’t mention the engagement party where the groom-to-be publically and graphically declared his love for his bride’s bosom.  Because that was not a wedding, and therefore ineligible for this post.
