I are thoughtless moron

By the special request of a reader, I hereby dub myself “thoughtless moron” in the “status bar” below the Bias Meter above.

That’ll change, of course, at some point in the near future, but for now, that’s apparently what I am.

    Don’t you love when protesters spell things wrong?

  • Paul

    And the irony of the word he misspelled.

    I are thoughtless moron

    I’ve been telling you this for years.

    Especially since I did that “whole donate and I’ll totally review the movie of your choice” thing back in the day. And you never reviewed my choice, you thoughtless moron.

    And you know exactly which movie I want reviewed.

    DO IT. YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO.

    Don’t give into these people, Maryann. Your comments about Brittany Murphy were not malicious, unlike some of the responses you’ve gotten. The people making the hateful comments are hypocrites. They are doing the very thing they are denouncing you for doing, which is offering an opinion. If they actually believed in what they were saying they would stop reading your blog. I’m against hatemongering and don’t like to see it supported.

    That sign is even funnier when you really apply grammar rules. Ignore the “morans” misspelling and notice the punctuation. When you have an exclamation point after “Get a brain,” you have ended that sentence. Therefore “Morans” is another sentence entirely.

    So one interpretation of that sign is that he is urging us to get a brain, and he signed it “Morans” as being the person doing that urging. He is calling himself a moron.

    The above two paragraphs assign me to hellfire for being elite.

  • Well, if I were a member of the Moran family, I’d be quite shocked at that blatant display of anti-Irish prejudice in the photo above. And since MaryAnn is half-Irish, I’m quite sure that that sign seems particularly offensive to her.

    Then again, the person pictured could have simply misspelled a word on his sign but I would think that a person would have to be pretty stupid to misspell a word that simple. In fact, he’d have to be a–oh, wait…

    The “GO USA” sign and flag rag are nice touches, too

  • And you know exactly which movie I want reviewed.

    Which one is that?;-)

    The “GO USA” sign and flag rag are nice touches as well

    She knows. :) It was released in 1977.

    HEY JoshDM! I didn’t know you were a fan of Billy Jack Goes to Washington!

    You can guess better than that.

    “Kentucky Fried Movie”

  • JoshDM

    Netflix just sent “Amazon Women on the Moon”, the spiritual sequel to “Kentucky Fried Movie”, and while it’s quite funny so far (I’ve only watched 45 minutes or so, then had to hit the sack – WTF Rosanna Arquette and Steve Gutenberg!), I like KFM better.

  • JoshDM

    Just finished Amazon Women last night and it was very entertaining.

    Hooray for David Alan Grier and Michelle Pfieffer (who really acted the heck out of her role), with a surprise post-cameo appearance by a top ’70’s/’80s movie icon!

  • LaSargenta

    Well, Josh, at least it wasn’t The Turning Point.

    1977 was a good year for movies.

  • JoshDM

    Man, now I want to rent Ishtar, but it’s never been released to DVD in North America.

  • LaSargenta

    That was 1987. Not 1977.

  • JoshDM

    And Amazon Women was 1986. Still, I want to rent it.

  • LaSargenta

    You have my blessing.

    1986 was a good year. Ollie North was laying the groundwork for loads of future entertainment. Straight to Hell came out…filled with buckets of punk in-jokes. I bought a copy of that to annoy my frenemies with.
