I need to follow "news" a bit closer. I heard briefly the Gibson had gone into a rant about something, and Sarah Palin had an issue with her daughter's boyfriend. That's it. I dropped it after that.
Don: I really wouldn't call those things news...more items that interest TMZ and Entertainment Tonight. Although both stories have been everywhere you look!
Like Don, I'm a little 'out of the loop', too. Now I understand the word "refudiate" when you used it in a comment somewhere - I found an article in the Washington Post by Jack Knox about Palin (I tried to past the link here, but it didn't work).Love the "Field of Dreams" 'toon (at least I got that one!);-)(my word veri: "gnali" - how a Bonstonian says "gnarly")
I have to admit, I LOVE "refudiate". It's the new potatoe. But the Mel Gibson rants are just depressing. The guy was raised by a serious racist, but come on -- that's no excuse for such vile beliefs. And if he hit the girlfriend too? Trash. Trash with 900 million dollars, true.
Well, Gibson may not be aware, but he just might have a future as a writer, seen that his movie career may have ended right here. When his rant was transcripted and fed into the I Write Like-program, the label it got was Margaret Atwood! On the other hand, this program may not be all that reliable. When Atwood's own text was fed to it, it was labelled.... Stephen King. :D
00dozo: What, you too? The Gibson and Palin stories carried "top of mind" for a couple of weeks...sadly. I'll check out your story in the Post. Meantime check out mine from my political satire blog Slings and Arrows @ http://nonamedufus.wordpress.com/2010/07/22/palin-drones/ You'll have to cut and paste the address from here to your browser. Just delete the existing url in your browser and replace it with this. If that fails, go to my right-hand column, click on Slings and Arrows and scroll to July 22 - "Palin Drones"
00dozi: Love your take on "ganil"!!!
KABLOOEY: The guy's not a nice person, obviously. I guess that's why they call what he does in his movies "acting".
RA: That's priceless. When I tried it, it came out as Raymond Chandler. I wonder what would happen if you fed Stephen King into it?
You know I know we're all human and do stupid things but this Mel Gibson thingy?Too much.It was after the fourth, fifth, twenty-thousandth rant and I saw that some channel (lucky for them I don't remember which one) was airing all the Lethal Weapon movies and I couldn't even stand the thought of watching.Of course, I'm not a Lethal Weapon movie fan, but that is besides the point!hee hee
I look forward to your Sunday Funnies every week. I never fail to guffaw.But who or what comes up with the word verifications? Sarah Palin?
Quirks" Yeah, what's up with Gibson? He's gone from Mad Max to Mad Mel.
Kelly: I'm glad you enjoy them. I have a great time choosing them.Sarah Palin choosing my word-veri. Good one. You'd think so, wouldn't you!
