Goggles_Pisano: swahnhennessy: It's not all that funny, but most of you completely miss the joke, despite it being obvious.

Wait, I've got this one.

Robin Wright Penn is actually referring to Andre the Giant as baked goods, as indicated by the quotes around the word "pain", which is French for bread, which is also the group that sang the song "I Wanna Make It With You", that was used in her wedding in the soap opera Santa Barbara with Cruz Castillo who was played by A Martinez, who also appeared in LA Law which aired on NBC, which also aired The West Wing, which featured Oliver Platt, who also starred in the movie Flatliners with, wait for it...

Billy Balwin. Who also appeared in Dirty Sexy Money alongside Donald Sutherland, whose son Kiefer was also in Flatliners along with Kevin Bacon.

So you see? That's the joke. Robin Wright was using Andre The Giant to explain her relation to Kevin Bacon... oh, man. That headline TOTALLY makes sense now.

Thanks subby.

That was awesome

Favorite quote from the "The Greatest Drunk on Earth" article.

For most of us, two litres of vodka means a one-way ticket to Black-out Island on the good ship Regurgitania.

Will use it from now on.

ToyChop: CMVenom: Yes, but will he serenade the World World Tag Team Championship to Ted DiBiase?


I was watching that with my buddy as it went down and we did a double-take when Andre said that. From then on whenever one of us gave the other something, we proclaimed that we were serenading the Tag Team Championship.

And here I thought we were the only ones.

Another wonderful Andre quote: "Don't worry about Vannah White."

Inigo Montoya: You have a great gift for rhyme.
Fezzik: Yes, yes, some of the time.
Vizzini: Enough of that.
Inigo Montoya: Fezzik, are there rocks ahead?
Fezzik: If there are, we all be dead.
Vizzini: No more rhymes now, I mean it.
Fezzik: Anybody want a peanut?

She relayed this story on the Special Edition DVD I bought a year or so back. Old news.

IdBeCrazyIf: Had he had the same situation right now today, he'd likely have a better chance as treatment for the issues he had has gotten MUCH better.

If I remember my wrestling trivia correctly, Paul "Big Show" Wight also suffered from acromegaly, but had it treated early in his career, and now he's no more likely to die prematurely than anybody else who's 7 feet tall and 450 pounds.
