  • Amanda Drudy Cleavage Update 71 comments
    Aug 26, 2009 11:05 AM
    Being one who watches CNBC with the volume down, I want to salute the powers that be for flying Ms. Drudy to headquarters for a much needed blast of international cleavage.

    Today, I'm giving Ms. Drudy an 8.3 on my Cleavometer.

  • These are the only type of tactics that will get CNBC's ratings up. Still waiting for the dominatrix's.

     

    However, as I said before the news will not get any better.

He probably has the prototype being tweaked by the final couple of hundred hot babes, just to make certain all systems are go. Maybe Amanda was to give final approval and she's balking.

On the way to the field I mentioned that I was concerned we might run into the game warden, as I had no hunting license.

  • Guns---Taking the limit always makes for a good day. The only time I ever went over limit I got nabbed by the warden. I ditched the doves(literally hid them in a ditch inside a grocery bag as the warden approached). He checked the ditch but thankfully did not see the bag. He charged me with no plug. I had a seven shot 12 gauge Winchester Model 12 pump and had just emptied it at a drove when he pulled up. Since a dove is a federal migratory bird I had to go to court over the no plug charge. I plead guilty and was fined $25. But the magistrate was very perceptive. He said, "I have a hunch that Mr.'Swashbuckler' here was over the limit, but since he's not charged with that and it can't be proven, we won't worry about that." Many years ago.

  • The original Cleavometer may be equaled, but it is unlikely it will ever be surpassed. If replacing it with another was simply a matter of funding, then of course that would pose no problem since governments the world over would gladly pay trillions $ for a small percentage of the product. Of course you know this mishap will probably induce protests, demos, congressional hearings etc. Mankind will just have to sit back and pray that your original inspiration returns along with the intellectual framework that originally brought about the cherished device. If it were something on a smaller scale, say, the theory of relativity, that the original formulas had vanished on, then that would be acceptable. But E=MC2 hardly deserves to share the stage with the Cleavometer. Mankind will just have to hold their breath and pray.

  • I am guessing there is a strong correlation between Ms. Drury's appearances and bad economic news. Ms. Drury is the new allstar CNBC cheerleader and her appearances serve as a warning that bad news is on the way. In short, she is CNBC's antidote to bad economic news, and she's their last resort when CNBC has nothing left to spin in a positive manner. It's possible she just fills in when Steve Lieseman's haemorhhoids are raging out of control, but I think it's obvious they roll her out to keep viewership up in a period of declining ratings. I'm sure she'll transfer out of Syndey's HQ soon, given all the dark economic news ahead of us. Does the Cleav*o*meter work on Erin Burnett as well?

    Erin Burnett would make a great first round selection for a co ed softball team.

     

    However, the Cleavometer does not register when she is on the air.

     

    JP,

     

    Constructive input. Maybe you could start a letter writing campaign to CNBC.

     

    If we could indeed get Ms. Drudy, Drury, whatever, to set em free for a quick calibration, all the world would be a better place to live, and CNBC's audience would double to well over a thousand or so households.
