Sunday Sacrilege



You may have already seen this by now, and if you have, chances are you're still either a) sitting there immobile, staring in a confused daze at your computer screen, or b) trying to scrub out your brain with a Brillo pad and some Tarn-X.

Suffice it to say, this is 100% real -- which makes it quite possibly the funniest thing in the history of everything.

Yeah, it's funny, all right.

Until you consider the probability that this will probaby raise a buttload of money.

Baldwin is simply treading the path trod by many an evangelist before him.

...wut

*brain-reboot*
I thought that Jesus had told his followers, "Sell all you have and give to the poor, then come and follow me."
Or
"When I was hungry, you gave me food; sick you tended to me, in prison and you visited me, etc."

*Deep breath*
So, can somenoe please tell me how giving money to an actor of all people will somehow fufill those commandments?
If these people behind Restore Steven Baldwin were really that righteous, they'd put their money and time towards actually going out and helping the misfortune.

The fact that he looks doped to the gills in these pictures just makes it funnier.

Christine said...

Yep... a)

Mostly because I don't think b) would even help.

That was awesome

Actually, it was:

c) laughing my ass off and trying to think of something suitably snarky to say on my blog or Twitter.

And I'm still trying to come up with a really good zinger. It's possible that it's already so comically absurd there's nothing that can be added to it, meaning it's some sort of perfection. Not sure which sort, but some sort.

My brain is already trying to deal with the contradiction that while he is a complete douche, he still was a badass in the Usual Suspects.

d-rap said...

Wow. I had no idea. It breaks my heart.

From now on I will take all the money I try donate to less-worthy causes and send it as one big "token gift" to help "restore Stephen Baldwin".

Hmmm, I wonder if I can also volunteer...

I think the only way you can liken this situation to Job's is if you reverse the script.

God: I'd like to make a bet with you, Satan.

Satan: Yeah? You have kind of a history of stacking the deck, don't you?

God: No, really, this is on the up and up. I'll bet you, say, North America that you can't turn Stephen Baldwin away from faith in my son.

Satan: Really...

God: Yeah. Show me what you've got, poser.

Satan: Wait a minute! I know what you're up to! You don't want the little shit-heel. You want me to win this bet!

God: No, really...I...

Satan: I'm going to make sure this fuck-face never denies you, you bastard. I'm going to have him singing your praises through bankruptcy, 10 different reality TV shows on VH-1 and all the way to his deathbed. This is going to get me so many more laughs for so much longer than Jerry Falwell and Jimmy Swaggart.

God: Shit.

To his credit, this may be the best acting he's done in years.

Radio interview with Lyn Fletcher, founder of the site.

Job 40:4 - "I am unworthy" period, end of story.

From a comedic aspect, I felt like Jodie Foster in Contact as I watched.

"Some celestial event. No - no words. No words to describe it. Poetry! They should've sent a poet. So beautiful. So beautiful... I had no idea. "

he looks like he's channeling Dirk Diggler.

So... they're begging people for money with the promise that all the glory will go to God? Isn't that a tacit admission that God can't do it himself?

Come on, bail out God, people -- we'll say He did it.

Alanna said...

The best is boarding the train on Long Island and hearing the various Baldwin brother's remind us to "Mind the Gap"...so appropos after viewing this PSA for douche baggery.

Beware the Balwin Bubble.

Bound to take fortunes down.

(The clip is so post-post-modern...)

I'm going to have to call shenanigans on this but whoever made it is a genius.

Stephen, what have you become? Your wonderful dad is spinning in his grave right now, and you have somehow made your brothers actually look respectable when compared to you.

But don't ever think I will suck you cock agai, and just Fuck You. (though thanks the joint outside Tanners circa 1985)
