The IPO of Snap, Inc. (the makers of SnapChat, who are making a big point of describing themselves as “a camera company“) is hotly-anticipated. There’s no exact date set yet, but I guess it’ll come out in March, and all eyes will be upon it, since it’s always a good litmus test to see how the public markets are doing when a money-losing behemoth comes out.
Twitter, as we all know, soared at first, and it’s been a complete train wreck ever since. Facebook, on the other hand, flopped at first, but it’s been a blue chip since then.
As Facebook was doing poorly, lots of obvious jabs were used, such as “Faceplant”. Should SNAP ever encounter a period of weakness (if you can imagine such a thing), I’d expect some really predictable headlines will include…….
- SNAP turns to CRAP
- “Oh, Snap!”
- Price “snaps” lower
I’m sure there are plenty others. Anyway, it’s about as predictable as the next major U.S. elections, when God-knows-how-many campaigns will try to play off the “2020 Vision” theme.
Incidentally, I forgot how funny this item from The Onion was until I re-read it this morning. Enjoy.
This was Kinison’s first appearance on Letterman. Of course, since he was actually brilliant, God took him from us, just like Carlin and Pryor. We’re left with Amy Schumer.
Well, as usual, any tweet of mine with political undertones garners lots of brouhaha, so let’s dumb it down with one of the funniest MST3K shorts I’ve ever seen. Enjoy
Video quality — meh. Norm quality – – excellent.
Norm MacDonald has a podcast called Norm MacDonald Live in which he gives jokes for guests to read. This is a compilation of the best of them, and I’ve probably watched it a dozen times already. Hilarious stuff……..
