Tom Hanks thanked his carers at the Gold Coast University Hospital on Sunday, where he and wife Rita Wilson are being treated for coronavirus. But the 63-year-old actor's Twitter post grabbed the attention of fans for all the wrong reasons - namely the very thick spread of Vegemite Tom applied to his toast. In the photo accompanying his tribute, the Forrest Gump actor showcased his breakfast, featuring a tube of Vegemite, with a kangaroo toy nearby.

I lost all interest in, and care about Tom Hanks after he made that snarky remark that Trump would be elected president right after aliens from another planet arrived. For all I care, he can stay in Australia and invite all of his Hollywierd liberal friends to join him there forever.

Why should we care about Tom Hanks and his woman? There are many serious cases world wide, especially in Italy where it has knocked the H out of the elderly population. He can afford the best care.The poor peons not so much.

In the remote chance that Tom Hanks meets St Peter at the Gate, St Peter will surely send him back if he promises to play him in his next movie. “I like what you did with the Capt Sully role, so could you consider doing the same for me?” Off topic, why is Tom portraying Col Sanders of KFC fame in this, his 3rd or 4th movie of the year? Tom doesn’t look good in a grey goatee and eyebrows.

Americans commonly make this mistake, because they are used to spreading peanut butter on bread or crackers. Vegemite is more like a condiment than a sandwich spread. It is intended to add flavor. It would be like putting that much mustard or horseradish on something. It has a yeasty savory flavor. Australians grow up eating it and it is familiar to them. Hanks probably just didn't know any better.

Amazingly horrible tasting stuff, vegemite. I couldn't imagine using it at all, let alone a lot of it. Yuccki stuff, for sure. The gunk left over at the bottom of a beer vat.......should be washed out and flushed, not packaged to eat.

Food snobs usually liberal insist that you eat food the way it is "supposed" to be eaten: pair certain wine only with certain food and at a certain temperature, put a certain amount of sugar in your coffee, place a certain amount of food on your plate, use a certain amount of butter on you potato. Screw 'em. Go Tom!

You have to separate the art from the artist. It's very hard to do. Especially when the artist is so offensive and cocky as Hanks. But he is a good artist.

With all respect, it is not just a condiment, but a spread. They use it on toast and all sorts of other ways. Some eat it out of the jar with a spoon the way kids eat peanut butter here… It is very yeasty.

Why is it important for me to know this? Why do I care what someone's breakfast is? Just seems like an elite who thinks I should know how important they are. It would seem #3, that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson can afford it. Again, I refer to the elite crowd. . .

If Tom Hanks dies, it won't be due to the coronavirus, but rather the Vegemite. I can say that with certainty, having spent considerable time in Australia, where I was pranked into trying that evil Soylent Green

I don't like Tom Hanks's politics, but think he is a good actor. I disagree with some about the Vegemite, though. I'd heard of it in the 1981 song Down Under, by Men At Work. But then I was sent to Oz a few years ago on a business trip and fell in love with the stuff. All Aussie mums feed it to their children like American moms feed their children peanut butter. It is salty (which I like), but is crawling with B-vitamins, since it is made from brewer's yeast. Two thumbs up for Vegemite!

New Poll Suggests Why
Christianity Is Declining

Posted by Imright 3/16/2020 5:41:30 PM Post Reply
The Pew Research Center survey on white evangelicals, President Trump, and Christianity's public role was released Thursday. The data on Christianity's influence in American society is particularly interesting. Over half of all Americans say Christianity's influence is declining (53 percent). A majority or plurality of respondents in all religious groups indicated that Christianity’s influence is declining; those who were the least likely to ascribe to this point of view were Jews, the unaffiliated and non-believers. The reasons posited for why this is happening vary.

In many ways, the debate will vary from all others held since last summer. Instead of a large and diverse field of candidates, only two old, white men remain. And instead of testing their styles and one-liners in front of a crowd, this meeting will lack an audience. With so much stripped away, the candidates will either shine or fail.
