Welcome Back Iggy

I'm thinking of having this printed up ....

Cindy says ... 'OH THE HUMANITY!'

I think they could be hot sellers at Empire/Eurobet/Multipoker etc.

I don't really have much to add on the subject of the Party/Skins divorce. You can read actual thinking bloggers or 2+2 for better analysis than I can give you. I will say that the move is unlikely to affect me personally, since I have no accounts at Party skins, and have only been playing sporadically at Party (using Bonus Code IGGY) in a futile effort to chase the Bad Beat Jackpot. Which was at $330,000 as of this morning. Wouldn't that be nice.

In other poker news, PokerStars has set up a blog for the blogger championship. The only thing of note so far is that Bill Rini won a T-shirt. Not bad, just don't wear it to the office, Bill.

Stars also has a very nice reload bonus offer -- presumably to take advantage of the turmoil in the Party Poker and Skins universe. 25% to $150, deposit by 10/16. Playthrough looks very reasonable, and you can complete it at your lesiure.

While putzing around last night, I encountered the worst radio advertisement I've heard in a long time. It's for a local auto dealership, selling Kias. Their last ad was pretty idiotic, featuring a Jeff Foxworthy soundalike telling people that if they had such and such, 'you might be a Kia buyer'. For whatever reason, they did not include some of the more common attributes of actual Kia buyers: 'If you're broke and desparate and you need a $6000 car, you might be a Kia buyer'. 'If you're a drunk or on crack, you might be a Kia buyer'. Etc. Brilliant in my opinion.

To top that genius effort, their new spot features a 'Forrest Gump' soundalike. Some actual lines:

Mama always says buying a car is like a vacuum cleaner. It sucks.

I got a job mowing lawns. Leutenant Dan gave me $199. Forget Jen-nay, I'm going to Keller Kia!

I would like to capture the full idiocy of the spot, but that's all I remember at the moment. Sorry it doesn't come across so well. But whomever it was that came up with the idea of using a movie retard (albeit a kind, genial retard) to sell your product, bravo. I have never been so motivated to go get myself some of that.

Sharing the love, that's what I do.

Yeah, I think I might get a beatdown if I wore the PS shirt to the office. :-)
