• “The World’s Largest MoonPie” (left) made its way to Mobile for New Year’s Eve.
• WKRG’s Robby Baker (center) sported a very merry suit during the Christmas broadcast and we can’t confirm that this very cheeky photo (right) that went viral over the Christmas holiday was taken at the TiCo Walmart as the caption claimed.

The MoonPie has dropped. The champagne corks have all popped (and hopefully didn’t injure anyone). And old acquaintances have been forgotten. Or wait … have we not forgotten them? I can’t remember. Either way, Happy New Year! Last year was fun, but I think 2019 is going to be freaky, y’all! And there is no time like the present to get our freak on, so let’s go ahead and do it with this week’s scoop. Enjoy!
That’s a mighty big pie
The “MoonPie Over Mobile” New Year’s Eve celebrations are always great fun. And one of the “biggest” parts of it is the serving of the “World’s Largest Moonpie.” The pie, which is 2 feet in diameter, serves nearly 200 people. Before it got devoured last Monday night, organizers posted a photo. Check it out in all its delicious glory!
It suits him!
WKRG sports guy Robby Baker tweeted out a photo of himself wearing his Christmas night anchoring attire, and the Boozester has to say it is pretty darn merry and bright! I did not get a chance to see this newscast myself, as I was tanked on spiked eggnog, so I could not confirm if he really wore this or if it was just a Twitter joke, but either way, it’s big Christmas suit pimpin’ and I love it!
Christmas Boozie booty fact-checker
I guess some joker in Mobile posted an image of a lady wearing a very short Santa cape with her butt hanging out. The caption said she was at the Tillman’s Corner Walmart on Christmas Eve. I received this image in the Boozie inbox several times and really, really, really wanted it to be at the TiCo Walmart. But you know what they say, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. And a quick Google image search revealed this photo has been posted on various sites since at least early 2018, so we are guessing it’s not one of our own. So our official Boozie booty fact-checker gives this 5 very cheeky Pinocchios.
Wedding bells ring, are you listening?
Our adopted son, Liam Hemsworth, who was in town a couple of months ago filming the movie “Arkansas,” tied the knot with longtime paramour Miley Cyrus over the Christmas holiday. He really wasn’t much of an adopted son, he was more like a temporary profile picture, but since we discussed him so much in this column and Miley showed up a couple of times to visit while he was here, I felt it my duty to share this joyful news.
Maybe the romantic atmosphere at The Grand Hotel, where the cast was spotted many times, put him in the mood for marriage. It was probably something else, but we wish them all the best in any case. (And I am so sure they care.)
Well kids, that’s all I got this week. Just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous, or some plain ol’ world’s-largest-MoonPie lovin’, I will be there. Ciao!
