I read that as 'bailing'.

Pass the torch Dick.

It's a marketing stroke of genius.

Wow, so they finally found replacement parts for the Dick Clark robot... I figured they had already abandoned it for the newer Mark II model.

Roy Horn must have gave Clark some tips.
 
2009-12-30 08:26:49 AM  
Oh yeah, deep inside the new year he is. Drilling away at our fresh, virgin, 2010. Give 'em some dick, Clark.
 
2009-12-30 08:28:25 AM  
Hime ho hoppy!
 
2009-12-30 08:28:48 AM  
He is a demon in human form
 
2009-12-30 08:29:22 AM  
Ha! I read that as 'falling'.

They should immortalize Dick Clark in the falling ball, so every time we bring in the new year, people can say, "I went to Times Square this New Years Eve to watch Dick drop."
 
2009-12-30 08:30:03 AM  
What's the over/under on him being the last casualty for 2009?

I foresee the ball rolling over him on live television.

FuLinHyu: Oh yeah, deep inside the new year he is. Drilling away at our fresh, virgin, 2010.

Now I'm going to whip my peener out of my pjs and face east at midnight on the first. Maybe kind of stretch out the waistband and thrust threw the opening. Might have to remove that button. Yeah, this could work.

Upon further reflection, I can do that for the fresh, virgin, December 30th too. And tomorrow. And as discussed, do it on the first. And the day after that. And the day after that.

He's an entertainment icon, but I think it's time for him to step down. Even Nicklaus stepped back from golf once he decided he couldn't perform as well.
 
2009-12-30 08:35:55 AM  
He's a vampire.
 
2009-12-30 08:36:07 AM  
Does Fergie have to do that stupid ass point-your-head-down-and-stare look? It looks especially stupid if the other two people in your picture are smiling normally.
This is a promo shot, for a New Years countdown show. That is probably aimed at age 40+ (ie people who will be home). This isn't a music video. Stop trying to be "coy", you're not 21 years old.
 
2009-12-30 08:37:23 AM  
He looks good for 80, but yeah, it's time to watch it from home, sir.
 
2009-12-30 08:37:53 AM  
I couldn't watch him last year, it made me sad :(

radioman_: Hime ho hoppy!

I'm probably going to hell for laughing at that.

Velveeta_Poindexter: I couldn't watch him last year, it made me sad :(

Couldn't... because you had no access to a television, or because you couldn't stop laughing?

Velveeta_Poindexter: I couldn't watch him last year, it made me sad :(

Velveeta the only thing you missed was the feeling of being uncomfortable. It was actually painful to watch Dick Clark in that role as he is obviously unable to meet what is required of that position.

One side of his face already has.
 
2009-12-30 08:43:07 AM  
He's an icon and a beloved TV figure.

But the stroke took a lot out of him and it really is sad watching him struggle doing something that has come so easily all of his life.

Perhaps this should be his last hoorah.

It's like watching Brian Wilson in concert.

Pointing east? I think you're doing something wrong ;)

Last New Year's Eve he looked like some sort of ghastly lich, ready to suck down the souls of viewers...
 
2009-12-30 08:47:23 AM  
I stopped watching him three years ago.
Drop this guy!
 
2009-12-30 08:48:35 AM  
I heard Dick Clark was drooling over the opportunity to host this again.
 
2009-12-30 08:48:39 AM  
This is pure, morbid, gold.

I called Ryan Seacrest a fag and my girlfriend got mad. Was that wrong? Should I not have said that?

Demetrius: radioman_: Hime ho hoppy!

I snickered as well.

There was a previous Dick Clark thread (for the life of me I can't locate) in which someone did the whole countdown in DC's stroke-laden voice. I couldn't stop laughing... kept giggling during the day.

She should just stop trying to look sexy all together. Because her face already has.
 
2009-12-30 08:50:12 AM  
It was really sad watching him last year. It's okay to hang up the coat, Dick. You've been hosting them for the past 5000 years. Your work is done.
 
2009-12-30 08:52:08 AM  
KentuckyBob: Pass the torch Dick.

This. It's just painful to watch him. If nothing else, it's bad TV.
 
2009-12-30 08:52:15 AM  
I could barely watch him last year, in fact I had to change the channel a few times just because it felt so wrong. What's so bad about passing the torch to the next generation?

It's official: Dick Clark will be balling drooling this New Year's

Wouldn't the freshness be coming from the east? I'm not that drunk to muss that up... it's barely seven in the morning.
 
2009-12-30 08:57:12 AM  
It's like going to see an ailing grandparent, I mean, God bless em they're still going but it is still makes you feel uncomfortable and a little sad.

That would depend upon your location and it's direction from the equator.

It looks like Dick Clark's right hand, or severed claw, is itching to backhand her one. It's probably offended by her puffy shirtdress.

Are we supposed to recognize the trained monkey mortician on the right? He appears to have "bad boy" stubble like something from a boy band, but he's grinning like a retard with a bowl of pudding.
