My headline “which cat is the bigger jerk?” is misleading, because clearly 99.9 percent of all the fluffy felines in this world are assholes. Even my cat Farley (above) is one of the most unfriendly creatures I’ve come across (but I still love him). For example, every time I try to hug him he uncomfortably squirms out of my loving embrace — biting my forearm if he feels it’s necessary — runs to a corner and starts cleaning himself like my arms were covered in mud and disease. As he cleans himself he glares at me with utter distaste and superiority.
Anyway, these two cats are similarly inclined toward a rebellious nature. Our competitors in this battle are Teddy and Loki (of course). Who do you think is the bigger jerk?
Competitor One: Teddy knocks things over just ’cause
Competitor Two: Loki likes his space
Loki reigns supreme in this battle. While Teddy puts up a fierce fight, he only knocks over one medicine bottle, whereas Loki is unstoppable.
Eight years after his death, Chris Farley is appearing in advertisements for a new treatment for drug and alcohol abuse.
Farley died at age 33 when his body was found in his apartment in Chicago on December 18, 1997.
He died of an overdose ? a “cocktail” of morphine and cocaine was found in his body.
A billboard was scheduled to go up Monday in Los Angeles (on Sunset Strip) that would show a picture of Farley and the slogan, “it wasn’t all his fault.”
This will be the first time that Farley’s family has given permission to a company to use Farley’s image for a commercial means since he died.
An L.A. medical firm called Hythiam paid the family $25,000 according to the Los Angeles Times.
The message of the ad is that alcohol and drug abuse is a medical problem. The company is advertising a product called Prometa. Farley is shown smiling.
Five additional billboards with Farley’s image will go up around Los Angeles, and the company is speaking with the families of other deceased stars who succumbed due to overdoses.
Farley got his start on Saturday Night Live before branching out into a successful movie career. His final movie roles included a small but memorable role in Dirty Work and a starring role opposite Matthew Perry in the bomb, Almost Heroes.
He also starred in Beverly Hills Ninja, Black Sheep and Tommy Boy; and appeared in such films as Airheads, Billy Madison, Coneheads, Wayne’s World and Almost Heroes.
