Microsoft Search: Bada Bing?

Apparently Microsoft is considering naming its new search engine Bing. No, seriously. Of course, the first thing that came to mind when we read this was the Bada Bing club on "The Sopranos," but since there aren't many images related to the Bada Bing that are appropriate for a family newsletter (and, in case our HR folks were wondering, yes, that was research for work), we'll just give you a picture of Tony.

But if you think that's all you're getting, you haven't been reading RCPU for long. No way could we let this opportunity go by without posting a Bing Crosby clip. In this case, it's an absolute drop-dead classic from the old "Tonight Show" in 1975 (thank you, YouTube), when Bob Hope, Der Bingel himself and John freaking Wayne(!) showed up to rib guest host Don Rickles just a little bit. (Seriously, John Wayne. Is there any current star that can come close to living up to his stature as an icon? We're going to say no.) Ol' Bing gets off a pretty good one-liner, too. This was TV that was actually worth watching.
