That is Whack!

Sometimes the things I hear/see/read are just plain crazy.

The latest whackness

  • BP Oil Company. The idiom was, “no use crying over spilled milk,” NOT, “no use crying over spilled oil!” You need to get your act together and clean up this mess before even more damage occurs. The spill has been spreading for over a month now, and we’re still not in the clear. As of yesterday, 23 birds, 156 sea turtles, & 12 dolphins are deadL. Come on Bp-- for the sake of future generations.
  • Ardi Rizal, the Sumatran 2 year old who smokes 40 Cigarettes a day. And no I am not kidding. His parents claim that he, “cries and throws tantrums when we don't let him smoke. He's addicted.” 1) Babies cry & throw tantrums. Deal with it. 2) Why was he EVER given cigarettes in the first place? I’m pretty sure he didn’t high tale it out of his crib one day, cruise down to the local store and demand a pack of Marlboro’s. 3) It’s better to wean him off of the cigarettes now. Trust me; the last thing you need is an angry 5 year old that looks like Donatella Versace in a bikini.
  • Jesse James Nightline Interview about his infidelity to Sandra Bullock. I know James’ (and a certain pro-golfer who was less than faithful) stories have become broken records, but I have to comment on James’ latest interview with ABC Nightline. James’ told Nightline’s that, “during the midst of all of it and when I was doing it, I knew it was horrible. It made me feel horrible.” Really Jesse? It made you feel horrible? Maybe I could forgive a onetime slip up, maybe. But, 4 women who appear to be stuck in an alternate universe between Barbarella and Miami Ink have stepped up and discussed their affairs with you. Jesse, you made your bed and are now laying in it (probably not the best analogy considering…), but now it’s time for you to disappear. Oh, and a word of advice: if Harley Davidson asks you to make a commercial where you stare doe-eyed into the camera while your father provides voice over, ride away. Ride away & never look back.
