Mr. Papa John's Calls Internet "Silly Stuff"

It takes a lot to ruffle my feathers, but I had to write this concerning a recent interview I saw of John Schnatter, Mr. Papa John himself. It aired on our local Fox affiliate WDRB here in Louisville.
Mr. Schnatter revealed that he has never seen or been on the internet. I would understand if his reasoning was that he is not a fan of technology or he would would rather use the phone as opposed to using emails.
However, his comments about the internet surprised me. “I’ve never been on the Internet,” he said. “No computers, No Noise. No Anything. I don’t like being bogged down with silly stuff.” But he did say that "the second wife" does get on the internet. That's a relief.
But seriously, why bash something that you have never seen or used? Also, why state on a TV interview that 90% of your customers partake in silly stuff? So I guess it wasn't his idea to be able to order Papa John pizza online.
Wow, I must really like the internet if I'm being so defensive. It just struck a chord in me. I just had to get it out. Sorry Mr. Papa John for being critical of you . . . Oh, that's right not to worry, you won't be reading this anyway.

You can see the TV interview here.

Visit Me on Netflix

I watch a bunch of movies and I write a lot of movie reviews. I have over 200 safely tucked away on Netflix here These reviews are pretty short as to not have any spoilers of any kind. That's how I roll.

You can let me know here whether or not you agree or disagree with what I have written. Also, you can recommend movies for me. That would just be the coolest!

The First Post

We shall see what this blog will have in it. I guess that is up to me. Who knows what I'll be writing about? The rise in foreclosures? Politics? Probably not. More like movies, books and what it going on here in Kentucky.

The photos on the left are me as well as photos of trips to Fort Walton Beach/Destin, Florida and New York City.

My other blog is my movie review blog. Enjoy. Leave a comment if you agree or disagree.

Adios for now until I can come up with a morsel of information or nugget of insight.
