Happy new year! Here’s hoping 2021 isn’t so bad.
Ramble of the Day
Let’s start the year and cap the week with a low effort ramble with a moderate amount of entertainment. Once, Larry King decided to ask comedian Danny Pudi if he had a luxury he couldn’t live without. We quickly find out this was probably not a great question.

I completely understand where Pudi is coming from when it comes to thinking of great coffee as a luxury, but I also don’t have as much money as Pudi so maybe there’s no reason for me to relate. Anyway, King has much loftier ideas for luxuries, like a private plane. Why would Pudi have a private plane? As he put it:
Larry, I’m on DuckTales.
tl;dr: Happy new year! Here’s a video of Danny Pudi telling Larry King he doesn’t have a private plane.
