Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger will co-star in a Bollywood movie with Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor.
As another first for a Bollywood movie, it will be shot at Universal Studios. Named Incredible Love, the story is about an Indian stuntman who can't find true romance in the States.

So last night at work, the last conference call to transcribe and edit was... Google. Yes, that Google.

How freakin' awesome is that?

Too bad it was the last call of the night. We were fried from the other calls. Consider the following brief exchange with my boss:

Me ---> lacking sleep, stressed, and full of Pepsi, in that weird mood where I think I'm a hilarious, sexy genius.

My boss ---> knows everything there is to know about financial transcription. He's kind of like the Oracle in The Matrix trilogy. We regularly ask him for help and advice. Also, a standard part of our work is looking up stuff online, and going through the website/s of the company whose call we're handling at the time.

Me: Hey, what's the URL for Google's website?

(Pause, in which I ponder if I'm the funniest human being God ever put on this earth, and how fortunate everyone around me are for knowing someone as hilarious and clever as I am).

My boss: Um. www.google.com, I believe.

Me: Oh cool.

(Pause, in which I'm expecting my boss to crack up laughing as a result of my sharp wit and amazing sense of humor, but am met with only silence).

Me: Thanks, see now I don't need to go Google it up.

(Another pause, in which I'm expecting my boss to explode in laughter, roll around on the floor in guffaws with tears running down his red cheeks, recover to breathlessly tell me how awesome I am, and promptly insist on giving me a raise. Or something. Instead I'm sitting there grinning like a mental patient and am met with some more silence).

My boss: I think you may need to cut down on that Pepsi.

Me: I'm so funny.

My boss: (coughs).

Okay, off I go to get breakfast and then crash out.  But if you think this post was funny, then check out what happened when we had to transcribe Pepsi's call.
