THIS WEEK’S FINAL FRIDAY THOUGHTS: Here’s what’s left as I head off to Manchester to watch the Fisher Cats play tonight (insert leaving early joke here):
CUE THE ANTI-GUN RHETORIC: That’s right, Robin. Here come the caped crusaders screaming that, with the proper gun laws in this country, the lunatic who shot up the theatre in Colorado last night wouldn’t have been able to do it. Check out this tweet from a man who can’t get anyone to watch his CNN show, never mind rally the populace for legislative change, Piers Morgan:
Yes, Piers, you’re from England. We know the Bobbies don’t carry guns. Well, unless they see a real criminal, then they seem to have M-16’s at the ready. This psycho would have shot a theatre up, gun laws or not. There are crazy people in the world and they do crazy shit. It sucks but it’s reality.
CUE THE ANTI-VIOLENT CONTENT RHETORIC: Like Alfred delivering a drink to Bruce Wayne, here come the guesses at what drove this idiot to shoot up a theatre full of moviegoers. It must be the violence in the film, right? What about the 1986 Batman cartoon plot which is eerily similar? Or, as several nut job commentators and bloggers are now doing, let’s blame it on this trailer for the upcoming film “Gangster Squad”, which ran before “The Dark Knight Rises”:
Oh, I get it. Gangster shoots up movie theatre in trailer, must mean that psychotic moron in Colorado gets idea to shoot up theatre from trailer, right? Unfortunately, if you watch the trailer, Gangster also shoots up cop car, people on the street etc. I guess we can now blame every shooting on Sean Penn. Which is actually not a bad idea.
IF YOU CAN’T WEAR YOUR FEEDING TUBE, THE TERRORISTS WIN: I’m all for proper searches at the airport. It never bothers me if I am asked to remove my shoes, or my boxer briefs, and submit to a TSA rubdown. It actually makes me feel safer. However, I agree with John Deaton of Texas who is pissed that the airport shampoo patrol strip searched his wife, and touched her feeding tube while she was travelling to the Mayo Clinic for treatment this week. Is there intelligence that we’re not privy to that Al Queda has placed a sleeper cell of airplane bombers with inserted feeding tubes in Texas so they can bring our planes down? If not, I think they should skip the feeding tube inspections.
ODD COUPLE, episode two is up. Little Wayne (Omar) and I go golf at the International in Bolton. Thanks to everyone out there for letting us film. And, because you read this blog, email me the reason why you want to play there, and I will hook one of you lucky stiffs up with a foursome at The Oaks course. Mantown@WAAF.com. Have a great weekend!
FRIDAY FINAL THOUGHTS…..some leftover items as I prepare to drive to Maine for an emergency Zumba class…..
PRIVATE DANCER: Thanks to @FelizJose27 for sharing this photo of the Zumba instructor/alleged prostitute from Kennebunkport that was the subject of today’s “Maine: The Way Life Shouldn’t Be” segment. This young lady was apparently providing more than a good sweat if you took her Zumba class. Or maybe I should say the sweat was produced in a different way. I like the fact that the Pizza place narc’d her out because they were wondering why pervy business guys were always going in the back door in suits but leaving naked. Okay, I made the leaving naked part up, read more.
THE NEXT WILL SMITH: check out the acting chops on our new call screener Omar, or “Little Wayne” as Spaz calls him. He is my co-star in our new series for WAAF.com called “The Odd Couple”. Yes, that’s really my office, dip spitters and all. I know it looks like a frat house.
PHOTO REQUESTS: Everyone is asking for another photo of Shanna, the girl who lives in the infamous Wrentham assisted housing complex, Garden Lane. She showed up at Uncle Sam’s live broadcast today and we were surprised to hear that she is the youngest resident of the elderly housing project. I would guess that she keeps her blinds drawn when changing so as not to instigate a Viagra disaster.
Hope you all have an incredible weekend and you are back with us on Monday Morning to see how Spaz’s date with this pregnant chick went!
