133913__belushi_lI’m inspired to put my Cranky Old Man hat and bib on today because, at a time when…

-the funniest thing on Saturday Night Live is Drew Barrymore making fun of her own wardrobe malfunction

-the most successful actor-turned-soul-singer is Jamie Foxx

-movie comedies’ obsession with bodily fluids makes the once-raunchy Animal House look like The Chronicles of Narnia

-Jim Belushi is a beloved sitcom star

-Dan Aykroyd’s most successful creative venture is a blues-themed restaurant chain
