It is Sunday and I continue my two days away from the headlines and the utter stupidity of the DC two step….
Before I go any further there is some sad news….actor John Hurt has died at age 77…….
The versatile British actor Sir John Hurt, who could move audiences to tears in The Elephant Man, terrify them in Alien, and spoof that very same scene in Spaceballs, has died. He was 77. Hurt, who battled pancreatic cancer, died Friday in London, according to his agent, Charles McDonald. Twice nominated for an Oscar, for playing the tortured John Merrick in David Lynch’s The Elephant Man and for his role as the heroin addict Max in Midnight Express, Hurt’s career spanned over 50 years. After minor television and film appearances, his breakout came in 1966 as Richard Rich in Fred Zinnemann’s A Man For All Seasons, followed by his portrayal of Caligula in the BBC miniseries I, Claudius in 1976.
(let’s not forget his portrayal of Winston in the movie 1984 with Richard Burton)
Sad day…he will be missed….may he rest in peace.
I let my readers know that I was re-starting my award, the “Asshat” Award, the “assies”…..there will be 11 monthly winners and an annual winner to be announced in late December…..and I will ask my readers to join in the process of picking the annual winner…..
January of 2017 had so much utter ignorance and stupidity with people spouting bullshit and passing it off as truth that it was difficult to pick a winner for the month…..so to re-start the award there will be 2 winners…..
IST monthly Winner of the Asshat Award…….
“I’m concerned that somebody with a platform like Meryl Streep’s is inciting people’s worst instincts” Kellyanne Conway on FOX and friends….
And the co-winner is…….
New White House press secretary Sean Spicer eased off his confrontational approach with reporters at his first official press briefing Monday, following a weekend in which he berated reporters and then took all kinds of flak for his “alternative facts.” Questioned about his honesty Monday, he responded, “Our intention is never to lie to you,”
There you have the winner/s for the month of January 2017…. congrats to them…the award is richly deserved. An email will be sent to their offices announcing their winning of this much coveted prize….
I believe the reason they won is obvious…if not get a 10 year old to explain it to you. i am sure that I will hear back from the winners because this batch of morons has zero sense of humor.
If any of my readers has an idea for a winner please pass it on and if used they will be given full credit for the submission. It is non-partisan so if you see, hear or read something dumb uttered by a Repub or Dem please pass it on to me and we will see how it shakes out….I do not care where it comes from a moron is a moron.
Since I cannot be everywhere all the time I could use your help…..
The award will be announced the last weekend of each month…..keep your eyes open and help this old fart out…..
Enjoy the rest of your day…be safe and be well….chuq
