If I Were A Lion, I Would Roar

I know it’s Tuesday but it feels like Dumbday.  And I’m feeling bitchy.  You have been warned.

  • In the We-Are-So-Screwed Department, apparently the Feds have asked director James Cameron to brainstorm with the Powers That Be on how to stop the BP DISASTER in the Gulf of Mexico.  Excuse me, I don’t give a rat’s ass if he is an underwater technology guy – HE MADE A MOVIE ABOUT A SINKING SHIP.  Really, is this the best we can do?  We have an environmental disaster beyond measure and the Feds call Hollywood? And point fingers?  Can some smart people please take charge here. Jeez……..
  • The last report I read, BP stock continues to sink.  The company has lost somewhere in the are of 65 billion or so.  Hmmmm …. a company that can lose 65 billion or so and still be in business? Wow.  And NOT have a backup plan for rig disasters? Double Wow. Have always loved a quote of John Wayne’s, “If you don’t like something, don’t bitch. Get off your butt and do something about it.” Well, John, I would if I could, but I don’t think getting in a canoe and paddling out there with a net is going to make a difference.  Hence, the bitchfest.
  • Someone snuck in my room while I was sleeping and removed part of my brain.  There is no other reason why I would purposefully turn on the television shows I have.  Last night, for instance.  Accidently turned on “The Bachelorette” – and it was horrible.  Not reviewing the show, but what happened on air.  There are a bunch of “men” trying to win Ali’s heart.  One of them is a nice weather weenie.   The other, a dental appliance salesman. A scary, psychotic, cruel, nutbag sort of guy.  He taunted the weather weenie so much, it was painful to watch.  The weather weenie told on him and dental devil did not receive a rose.  Two things made me angry: the other “guys” didn’t tell Satan to shut the hell up at any point and, he’s really so scary I fear for any man or woman who ever gets near him.  This show continues to choose disturbed contestants.  And it is disturbing ……
  • As if that wasn’t enough, next on was “The Real Housewives of New Jersey“. Don’t want to get whacked so must be careful here.  Suffice it to say there were major rumblings on the show, along with ex-cons on parole.  One of the parolees wanted to do bad things to other people, but parole would end in six days if he kept his hands to himself.  While the show was very real, it has nothing to do with any sort of housewives I’ve ever known. The only ex-con would be the guy in high school who was caught literally shaking down the washing machines for quarters at the washateria.  These people on tv are very scary.

Cooking Partner asks, “Why do you watch that trash?”.  And I do not have a good answer.  I don’t have an answer.  Because part of my brain is missing.  Think I’ll go look for it … ending this bitchathon.  You’re welcome.

  1. James Cameron? HAHAHAHA!

  2. James Cameron? Really? Well, I never!
    As for the housewives, I saw the show once and though they were aliens.

  3. First they get Kevin Costner to demonstrate his water/oil centrifuge thingy that he helped invent and now James “kingoftheworld” Cameron is asked to be part of the brain trust. Pa-the-tic!
    I can’t drive down the road without my seat belt securely fastened, but BP can drill holes in the ocean floor without any type of back-up plan whatsoever?
    We should all watch The Bachelorette just so we can lower our IQs to the point that the whole BP fiasco doesn’t enrage us anymore.

  4. Isn’t this situation beyond idiocy? As if James Cameron’s ego isn’t big enough to plug the blowout … wait, maybe that’s why they’ve brought him in. Hmmmmm. Can’t watch TB anymore, my IQ is on the ocean floor at this point.

  5. I can’t believe that James Cameron bit! I believe a resounding “WTF!!!?” is in order.

    Oh man, I wish you would rant about Jersey Shore. If the part of your brain was removed that was watching The Bachelorette, Jersey Shore would be perfect 😛 It will make you angrier than anything. I promise.

  6. Nice Weather Weenie……that is priceless!

  7. I watched last season’s Bachelor and have to admit I became addicted. I hated Ali though. I don’t think she really begged to come back, I think it was just the show’s way of getting her back into the pic so she could be the next Bachelorette.

    Oh my god. I will not go shoot myself for having an opinion on such things….

  8. Great point about James Cameron.

    The feeling gets worse when I learned Kevin Costner is running around touting his oil cleaning technology.

    Is it all a PR run-up to a movie? Title:

    BP – Swimming with wolves

  9. As someone who lives in New Jersey, I must say I have yet to meet anyone like the women on that show, though, sadly, I have seen people act like the kids on Jersey Shore. Still, I prefer that sort of pollution over the oil in the gulf.
