Picture of the Day


Who knows whether this is for real or entirely made up. Either way, it's a nice little commentary on the dangers of instantly making millions of people who know nothing more than what they read in a two line blog post or see in a two-minute YouTube video outraged experts on a complex issue. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the slacktivist herd-mentality.

You can't expect feebleminded do-nothing kids to tell the difference between two BLACK men. I mean, how many men of color do you really think these kids have seen?

Well, he is the face of a major problem. Invisible aliens. They need to be stopped. We must fight them in the rain forests before we're fighting them in our neighborhoods.

I can't believe that these kids aren't familiar with the greatest acting coach/lifestyle advisor in the world! I cannot tell you how many times I've been able to get a stew on thanks to what I learned from this man, not to mention how much I plan on saving by making proper use of the craft services table if I'm ever working on a movie!

Is there a Youtube video detailing how many children Joseph Kony has abducted since we first knew he was doing it 20 years ago and when it finally was reported in a Youtube video and we suddenly started caring?

Claude Weaver said...

Seriously? This can't be real. No way somebody could be that abruptly clueless.

Okay maybe some can. But I still call shenanigans.

This is why we should have voted Carl Weathers as governor when we had the chance.

Which state? Any of them. Because he was in Predator.

I call Bravo Sierra on this one.
