CBS‘s 60 Minutes paid tribute to their fallen brother Andy Rooney last night in the most fitting way possible. By jamming a quickly slapped together video between toothpaste ads and car commercials at the tail of the show.

America‘s favorite grouch-in-chief” passed away this weekend after complications from a minor surgery. Why do they call it a “minor” surgery if it involves complications? You would think that a minor procedure would be worry free, not something that leads to death. Or perhaps it’s called that because the surgery is performed by a minor. Doubtful. Young people today are too busy dragging their baggy clothes down the street, rather than take the time to learn the medical trade and the human body. I bet that you couldn’t find a teenager that could point to their own Iliac’s Crest. Back in my day, all the doctors had gone off to war, so we had to depend on teenagers for our medical well-being. At least then we could trust that they would wash their hands first. Do you know what I hate? Soap in a pump bottle. The stem that is supposed to carry the soap to your dirty hand doesn’t reach to the bottom of the bottle. That deprives the consumer of hard-earned soap. I’ll take a palm full of soap chips over that any day of the week. The days of the week make me angry. Wednesday is commonly referred to as “Hump Day,” which means it is the most difficult day in the week. Once you get passed it, everything else is better by comparison. But what if your work week ends on a Wednesday? Then your final day is the most difficult and stressful. And what if your only day off happens to fall on a Wednesday. Or the holidays? Christmas with family can be stressful enough. I just don’t know. Sounds complicated.

By now you’ve probably heard the news that America’s favorite crotchety old man, Andy Rooney, is retiring from his weekly editorial on 60 Minutes. This made me sad for two reasons. First off, Rooney is awesome, and I’m one of the few people under the age of 70 who actually makes a point to watch him. But second, and more importantly, ScreenJunkies.com has a personal connection with A.R.

Over the past few years, Mr. Rooney has submitted a hand full of unsolicited film reviews to our site. Not being a site that looks a gift horse in the mouth, we eagerly accepted the reviews, which were delivered via Western Union. Sure, maybe his writings didn’t make the most sense, but neither does Rex Reed, and he’s 20 years younger than Rooney.

At any rate, in honor of his retirement, click the images below to read Andy’s reviews.

So long, Andy, and thanks.

Andy Rooney went on "60 Minutes" last night and basically explained that he’s old as he decomposed in front of us. He doesn’t understand your Lady Gagas and your Ushers. Back in his day, women didn’t design a costume around their vaginas and black men could really cut a rug. Alright, maybe black men can still cut rugs, but they didn’t do it while wearing diamond earrings. Only people with vaginas used to wear earrings, which was the only way you could be sure they had vaginas. Nowadays there’s no way to tell who has a vagina and who doesn’t, which is why people must openly flaunt their vaginas. The times, they are a changing. (Videogum)

Conan O’Brien’s 60 Minutes Interview http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/conan-obriens-60-minutes-interview/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/conan-obriens-60-minutes-interview/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Last night on "60 Minutes," Steve Kroft sat down with Conan O'Brien and asked him if he thought he got screwed, among other things. O'Brien joked that his contract with NBC prohibited him from speaking frankly on the matter, but that even if he didn't have a contract his opinions would remain cordial.Obviously Conan was hurt by the whole ordeal, and Leno and Zucker don't play in his sandbox anymore, but the former "Tonight Show" host insists that he didn't get screwed. Really, Conan? I mean, I don't exactly feel sorry for him considering he walked away with over $35 million, but when a prostitute walks away with a sweaty palm full of cash she knows how she earned it. She got screwed. And that's okay.  Check out the full interview below.
