Somebody posted this link over at the Wonkette and I laughed and laughed. Not at the link. It is essentially without comedic value. But, rather, at the material to which I saw upon "clicking the link" which is what the young people are calling it these days. So click away and you will be whisked (depending, of course, upon factors such as your internet provider connection speed and your browsers ability to upload) to the funny. Yes, it has come to this. I am re-posting 12-year-old articles from The Onion...
We all have movies that we stop at least a part of anytime we come across them on TV, no matter how many times we've seen them. My list would include Goodfellas, Casino (the same movie, actually) anything by Monty Python, Apollo 13 (even though I know how it turns out), Field of Dreams, and, of course, Behind the Green Door.
I'd add to the list Glengarry Glen Ross which is useful today as I would like to comment on what the Ex-Vice President Dick Cheney said the day before yesterday about President Obama's handling of the wars which he himself created and it is this, from Glengarry Glen Ross, courtesy of Richard Roma:
"You stupid fucking cunt. Cheney! I'm talking to you shithead! You just cost me 6,000 lives. 6,000 lives, and one Cadillac. That's right. What are you going to do about it? What are you going to do about it...asshole? You fucking shit! Where did you learn your trade, you stupid fucking cunt?! You idiot! Whoever told you that you could work with men?! Oh, I'm gonna have your job, shithead. I'm going to Mitch and Murray! And I'm going to Lemkin! I don't care whose nephew you are...who you know...whose dick your sucking on, you're going out! I'll tell you something else, I hope it was you who ripped off the joint, maybe I can tell our friends something that will help them to catch you. Any man who works here lives by his wits. I'm going to be with you in a second. What you are hired to do, is to help us. Does that seem clear to you? To HELP us. Not to FUCK US UP! To help men who are going out there to earn a living, you fairy. You company man. You want to know the first rule you'd learn if you'd ever spent a day in your life? You never open your mouth until you know what the shot is. You fucking child."
