COULD ANCHOR MAN 2 WIN AN OSCAR?
With awards season kicking into higher gear, even movies like "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" want a slot in the golden derby. As first noticed by Indiewire's The Playlist, Paramount Pictures' awards site has "Anchorman 2" up for consideration in the Best Original Song category.
Called "Doby," the track is a two-minute tribute to Doby, a person or animal who touched Ron Burgundy with his "expressionless face." Written by star Will Ferrell, director Adam McKay and composers John Nau and Andrew Feltenstein, the song is performed by Ferrell and what sounds like a children's choir.
Movie will hit theaters Dec. 18th.

PIZZA HUT MANAGER FIRED FOR NOT OPENING ON THANKGIVING
A former manager at an Elkhart, Ind., Pizza Hut trying to give his employees some time off says he was fired for refusing to open the store on Thanksgiving, Tony Rohr, who started out at the pizza chain as a cook before working his way up to general manager, confronted his superiors after being told the store would need to be open on Thanksgiving.
In years past, Rohr said, Pizza Hut stores have been closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas
"Thanksgiving and Christmas are the only two days that they're closed in the whole year and they're the only two days that those people are guaranteed to have off and spend it with their families," he told WSBT.
His bosses told him to tender his resignation, but he wrote a scathing letter instead.

Happy Thanksgiving!!! As you sit down and get ready to stuff your face, I want you to think about this: the average thanksgiving meal is around 4,500 calories. To put that in perspective it's equivalent to eating the following in a single sitting:
- 2 pepperoni pies at Pizza Hut
- 4 Chipotle burritos
- 48 traditional wings at bdubs
- 7 whoopers at Burger King
- 37 chicken drumsticks at KFC
- 11 Junior bacon cheeseburgers at Wendy's
- 10 Beef 'n cheddars at Arby's
OK now who's hungry? (I know I am!!!)
