Normally, I don’t link to news sites because I think it’s a lazy way to fill a post.
This is how much effort that kind of blogging takes:
Go Back to Getting Drunk/Injecting Class A Narcotics Into Your Remaining Non-Collapsed Vein While Other Bloggers Sweat Blood Over What They’re Going To Say Next
But that’s not to say that you shouldn’t feed from news sites. I love it when you do that! Really! No, really!
Anyway, I had to link to this pile of cock-crapping-moronic -fuckwad-American-dumbshit- thinking.
Yep. It looks like MJ has graduated from sleeping in beds with short, underage children (just as friends!) to wanting to bed legal aged (hopefully, anyway) short people with funny accents because he thinks leprechauns are “magical” and Mr. Michael loves magic!
Again, I hate to say it but…there are so many things wrong with this.
I’ve long argued that the reason why so many Europeans hate Americans is that they (Americans) tend to view other cultures/countries as a great big Disney World theme park when/if they actually bother their ass to come and see a different part of the world.
They (Americans (yes, I realize that I am American but for the sake of argument I’m distancing myself for the moment)) tend to think other cultures are “quaint” and “charming” without ever stopping to think that living in another country is an actual true and very real way of life.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked through the streets of Belfast (where there is no shortage of American tourists) and had to listen to statements like, “I’m Irish! I totally think Belfast is awesome! Cuz I’m Irish! Mate! Bloody, bloody, queue, mate, cheers!”
Don’t get me wrong.
Being proud of your heritage is good/great thing (if you care about that sort of thing. I don’t, but that’s just me). But leave it at that, because no matter how much you want it to be true- it’s not who you are.
When Americans come tramping around anywhere that they’re not from claiming that they’re Irish, South African, Russian, or whatever (because some distant relative came from there) they not only make a fool of themselves but they run the risk of looking stupider than they already are (culturally speaking) and nobody wants that. (Or do you? Do you want to look stupider? With Bush in the White House? Really? Jesus Christ! You are a glutton for punishment!)
Anyway, that weirdo creep Michael Jackson thinks it’s a good idea to open a theme park based around leprachauns because he obviously has no sense of realityand lives in some fucked up fantasy land where he honestly thinks that opening a theme park based on leprachauns in Ireland is a good idea.
I don’t get it and I’m sorry if you tuned in today wanting a light hearted “Wayne’s had a bad day” type of post but this really pissed me off. (Also, I am well aware that my political rants usually read like a crazed mad man on acid with a keyboard. Therefore, I’m going to save this but not publish it until tomorrow so that I can have another look when I’ve calmed down. If this actually gets published, it means I’m still pissed off. And if you’re reading this that means I am. Wow. This is getting confusing. Anyway, have a good weekend!)
Ahhhhh fuck it.
