Just asking…

Harrison Ford, who is 78, will be doing yet another “Indiana Jones” sequel, for now dubbed “Indiana Jones 5.”

Sure, everyone loves his swashbuckling stature, but No. 5? Ain’t it time to call it quits?

The good news: George Lucas, of “Star Wars” fame, will be on board as executive producer.

The bad news: Steven Spielberg won’t be directing but will be retained as a producer; James Mangold will sit in the director’s chair.

The  Disney project is in pre-production phase, targeting a theatrical release in July 2022, coronavirus issues notwithstanding.
Ford turns 79 on July 13, was in his late 30s when he did the original “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (filmed in 1981), which begs the question: Can he still pull it off nearly 30 years later?

Of course, his name is box office gold. It’s franchise, like “Star Wars,” also is golden for the marquee. And yep, he looks grand ‘neath that fedora.

So, let’s see how this one plays out…

CATEGORY: JUST ASKING?

TIGHTY WHITES OR COLORED BOXERS AND BRIEFS?

Just asking:

Tighty whiteys or colored boxers or briefs?

Today’s query is for gents: Are you a tighty whitey wearer?

Over the years, basic white underwear were popular, at least among dads and grandpas.
Nowadays, it’s colored briefs or boxers.

What’s your take?

Tighty whitey. Colored briefs

Can you open the can?

I have a beef with Libby’s trapezoidal tin of corned beef. Every time we have corned beef cabbage or onions for dinner, the missus shouts: “Can you open the can?”

Can do, but it takes a real effort. Libby’s product is not shaped for conventional can openers, manual or electric. You gotta use the attached key, not a pull-tab, but a bona fide key. So, if you buy the tin, make sure it has the requisite key.

Did some research (you’re welcome) why Libby’s chose this shape and attached the key.

Historians credit Arthur A. Libby, who acquired a patent in 1875, to claim and retain this shape and key, supposedly to  allows the content to slip out as a block that can be sliced. In our household, the corned beef is mashed and shredded; not sliced.

Wondering: does anyone slice corned beef, as a breakfast meat like bacon or Spam? Spam boasts a soda-style pull tab, which is easier to manipulate, and the contents can be sliced, too.

What’s your take?
