Calm down, calm down. Not that light. For the first time in, well, his life, Pat Robertson spoke with amazing rational clarity when he endorsed the legalization of marijuana earlier this month.

“I became sort of a hero of the hippie culture, I guess, when I said I think we ought to decriminalize the possession of marijuana,” Robertson said on his show The 700 Club, which at least one person is still watching, apparently. “I just think it’s shocking how many of these young people wind up in prison and they get turned into hardcore criminals because they have a possession of a very small amount of controlled substance. I mean, the whole thing is crazy.”

Robertson saying he’s now a hero to the hippie culture? Was he high? He soon returned to his usual form, however, when he addressed the issue of the Denver Broncos signing Peyton Manning and dumping Tim Tebow. Apparently referring to his holiness, Mr. Tebow, Robertson suggested that if Manning got injured this season, it would serve the Broncos right.

Now that’s the Pat Robertson we know and love. Still, we think he should get an invite to 4/20.


Anybody remember when Boulder had a Hooters?

Well, for those who have missed that style of, um, dining entertainment, a little establishment aptly named “Twin Peaks” is opening a location in the Flatiron Crossing area.

This eatery is billed as a “mountainlodge style sports restaurant” that already has a location at Colorado Mills and is known for its “scenic views.” They don’t seem to be referring to the Rockies.

It’s true. This joint, with a completely straight face, sends out a press release looking to recruit “Colorado’s perkiest girls” for its new restaurant. The perks of becoming one of the “outgoing and beautiful Twin Peaks Girls” include corporate tanning and having “the privilege to wear the cute pro-cheerleader-inspired ‘lumber-jill’ costume.”

Oh, and a chance to appear in the 2013 Twin Peaks Calendar.

“And the best part of all?” the release says. “No previous restaurant experience required.”

We bet there isn’t. Prospective eye candy, er, applicants, were supposed to show up earlier this week at the new location, “dressed to impress and with their bubbly personalities in tow.”

Somehow, we don’t think they’re being hired for their personalities. Makes Hooters look like a church.
