Why Streisand's hot & bothered
New York Daily News ^ | 12/06/04 | Adam Lisberg

Posted on 12/06/2004 2:18:49 AM PST by kattracks

Forget about gory violence on the silver screen. Ignore the suggestive vixens of prime-time TV.

What really, really bothers Barbra Streisand are those impotence drug ads.

"You know, I resent this thing about Hollywood and moral values," Streisand told Time magazine in an interview - until she was interrupted by "Meet the Fockers" co-star Dustin Hoffman.

"Amazing," he said. "There she goes."

"I just can't stand it," Streisand rattled on. "What movies are out now that have questionable moral values? You know what I think has questionable moral values? The Cialis commercials."

Cialis is an anti-impotence drug that improves a man's ability to, uh, function, for up to 36 hours.

Meanwhile she is stuffing her face with any food product she can in an effort to not feel anything whatsoever.

Well, even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then. The music in the Cialis commercials is very reminiscent of the soundtrack for a porno movie. I halfway expect to see the pizza delivery guy get dragged into the bored housewife's boudoir during those things.

Having said all that, the lefty bilge spewed every day by Streisand and her fellow travelers is 1000 times more obscene than any mere nudge nudge wink wink commercial.

Maybe Babs can't find an excuse to have a continuing headache. What was it that the Cialis commercial said about it's effects lasting for over three hours?

If I was (shudder) married to Babs I would be the one having the headaches every night. And spending her money by day.

Just a short Babs story for all her fans, they cherish this one in Beaufort, South Carolina. While making Prince of Tides her heinendness rented a home. Every morning about 7:00AM a flight of Marine jets would fly out and somewhat near her home, disturbing the Diva. She got on the phone and reamed the base commander. Next day they went directly over her place at 5:00AM.

Look, b***h, if I've gotta deal with douche ads, you can handle Bob Dole talking about limp spagetti.

I predict Meet the Fockers will be a bomb because of these two boobs (Streisand and Hoffman.... Hoffman who thinks that peace can be achieved if we all sniff each other's butts. I know that was a joke on his part, but even as a joke it's colossally stupid! And Streisand who passed the sanity mark on taking oneself too seriously a long, long time ago.).

Ever notice.......every Duncetin Hoffman's pic is about "Look at me, a short, ugly guy in a major motion picture."

A funny story about Duncetin is related by airhead star Cybil Sheperd.

Seated at a posh Hollyweird dinner party, Duncetin could barely see over the dinner table, and his little legs did not reach the floor.

Cybil suggested the hostess bring in a phone book for Dunceton to sit on.

He and his wife left shortly thereafter.

Not content to have insulted the little man's ego, next day Cybil sent Duncetin a phone book.

I'm glad you brought up the Enzyte commercials featuring Bob. I hate to agree even partially with Ms. Pinnochio, but this is one series of ads that goes a little too far. For instance when Bob is haggling with Japanese businessmen. Among the comments made in sub-title while the product is being hawked are "He is a stiff negotiator" and "He is the board that will not bend". I mean, c'mon!

When I saw this I wondered if the city hadn't finally condemned her little piece of paradise, before it winds up on the curb of PCH.

"What movies are out now that have questionable moral values?"

How about "Meet the Fockers"? (You know what you get if you change one letter in the work "fockers".

I actually think the ED commercials are a notch or two worse than the tampon & pad commercials.

Am I seeing this picture wrong, or does it appear that the rapist-in-chief is trying to break Bab's grip on him?

Imagine that...BJ klinton actually looks like he doesn;t want any part of that skirt.

Sorry Babs, but your intern days are kind of behind you now.

Cialis is an anti-impotence drug that improves a man's ability to, uh, function, for up to 36 hours.

But if you have an erection that lasts more than four hours, you're supposed to call your doctor.

Like the one guy said, "If I have an erection that lasts four hours, I'm calling everybody."

That is hilarious! Years ago, before I knew what a witch she is, We took a family vacation to Hunting Island, right outside of Beaufort, SC. We took a tour of Beaufort and we saw that house, along with the one featured in The Great Santini.

I remember the guide showing us the house Babs rented and saying that the town thought Mr. Nolte was great. Being naive I asked "What about Barbara Striesand?" She repeated.... "The town thought Mr. Nolte was great"

Far from being subtle, the insult by omission was pretty obvious. Everybody in that tour thought it was a great remark. It sure got a lot of laughs.
