Daily Dirt: Worst actor ever? Here’s a vote for Adam Sandler … and anyone in the mood for some maggot cheese?


Adam Sandler

Daily Dirt for Feb. 4, 2022

From bad actors to some nasty, nasty cheese … welcome to today’s three thoughts that make up Vol. 203 of The Daily Dirt.

1. Today we’re offering our choices for the five worst actors/actresses in the last 25 years or so.

The parameters we used included each had to be involved in multiple major films over that period and had to have provided multiple “bombs” at the box office.

1. Adam Sandler: He’s one of many who thought their 5-minute “Saturday Night Live” skits, of which some of Sandler’s were actually amusing, could translate into feature-film success. After the early novelty finally wore off, Sandler’s films — and popularity — began to fade fast.

2. Keanu Reeves: Let’s give Keanu credit for the action hero he is, because as an actor he should be thankful Adam Sandler is in the world. That assures Keanu he will never be the worst.

3. Jennifer Lopez: The absolute worst actress of the era.

4. Ashton Kutcher: The only actor more overall annoying thank Kutcher is Sandler.

5. Ben Affleck: Among other failures, Affleck was the worst Batman ever. Even worse than Michael Keaton. (PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This Batman comment deserves more than a publisher’s note and the response to this lunacy is coming later today. JRG)

2. Any self-respecting baseball fan appreciates the wit and wisdom — yes, that last term is used loosely –of the late Yogi Berra.

We all remember and chuckle at Yogisms like “It ain’t over till it’s over” and “It’s like deja vu all over again,” but what may have been lost through the years are some of the other thoughts provided by the affable Berra:

  • “When you come to a fork in the road, take it”.
  • “Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours”.
  • “You better cut the pizza in four pieces, because I’m not hungry enough to eat six”.
  • “We have deep depth”.
  • “You got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there”.
  • “He hits from both sides of the plate. He’s amphibious”.
  • “I don’t know (if they were men or women fans running naked across the field). They had bags over their head”.
  • “It ain’t the heat, it’s the humility”.
  • “So I’m ugly, I never saw anyone hit with his face”.
  • “Take it with a grin of salt”.
  • “If I didn’t make it in baseball, I won’t have made it workin’. I didn’t like to work”.

3. In our ongoing quest to find the most disgusting foods in the world, today we offer up “Casu Marzu”.

It is aptly nicknamed “maggot cheese,” because of its direct translation — “rotten cheese”. The Sardinian specialty is made of Italian pecorino cheeses that are deliberately prepared to became a haven a haven for maggots, putrefaction and rot. This fermentation process includes the removal of the top of the cheese so flies can lay eggs inside, which then work to digest the fats, leaving the inner cheese soft and like a liquid.You eat this … ummm, stuff … like you would regular cheese, except there are worms and maggots that jump off the cheese as you eat it. It is said to taste exactly how you would imagine it — completely pungent and absolutely disgusting. 

Steve Fact O’ The Day Cheese-wise, Steve prefers Colby. Minus any and all maggots. Worms, too.
