10/29/2022 Media & Celebrity Silliness   1 comment

It’s a cold morning here in Maine. I did an early food shop this morning and the hunters appear to be out in large numbers. I’ve never been a hunter and I have no idea what hunting season actually started today. I just know I won’t be taking any long walks in the woods where some drunken, nearsighted, armed, citizen might mistake me for a deer or a turkey or whatever. I’ll be staying indoors where it’s safe.

Enough of this nonsense, let’s get into some other more interesting nonsense concerning one of my favorite subjects: Media and Celebrity Silliness. When they screw up, they put it out there for everyone to see and hear and here are some of my favorites.

  • “To say this book is about me (which is the main reason I was uncomfortable – me, me, me, me . . .frightening!) is ridiculous. This book is not about me.” Kate Moss, Model, on her book, Kate: The Kate Moss Book
  • The Duck and Doochess of Windsor.” Anonymous Commentator, introducing the Duke and Duchess of Windsor
  • “The red squirrels . . . you don’t see many of them since they became extinct.” Michael Aspel, BBC
  • “Smoking kills. If you’re killed, you’ve lost a very important part of your life.” Brook Shields – During an anti smoking campaign interview
  • “Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can’t help but cry. I mean, I’d love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff.” Mariah Carey

  • “I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever.” Miss Alabama 1994, when asked “If you could live forever, would you, and why?”
  • “An end is in sight to the severe weather shortage.” Ian Macaskill, BBC Weather
  • “It’s not listed in the Bible, but my spiritual gift, my specific calling from God, is to be a television talk show host.” James Baker, televangelist
  • “We don’t like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out.” Decca Records Co. executive in 1962, after turning down the Beatles
  • “As a prize – a beautiful riding mower with optional ass scratcher.” TV Announcer who meant to say “grass catcher”

  1. Ok, you win! Definitely didn’t phone this one in. Very funny and informative. These people dabbled in way too many substances.
    By the way, Happy Halloween! I’ll be expecting lots of “treats” to appear in Monday’s blog. My favorites are Paydays, Almond Joys, Mounds, and just for laughs, Snickers! 💗🎃😂🍫
