Be obscure clearly. E.B. White
There are some very outspoken people in the world. I can’t say I’m a wall flower, but at least I stay under the radar. Unlike famous people who are unfortunately under the constant camera gaze of TMZ and People Magazine. And when people are in the limelight everything they say and do is recorded and analyzed. Shame on People Magazine and TMZ for being intrusive and rude. But then, we wouldn’t be given little jewels of wisdom to discuss at the water cooler. Here are my top five picks to end the 2012 year on:
#5. – Ted Nugent – “I am Rosa Parks with a Gibson guitar.” I’m guessing his idea of “Rosa Parks” is a man forced to hunt on foot instead of a dear blind because they don’t have the right colored camo. This is from a guy who brought us some of my favorite songs, (like Great White Buffalo and Stranglehold) and bizarro lyrics (like – “pretend that your face is a Maserati” from a song called Wango Tango.
#4 – Wayne LaPierre – “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” LaPierre is the Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association who spoke on behalf of the NRA following a week of silence in response to the Connecticut shooting. I think he’s missing a few options here.
#3 – Ozzy Osbourne – “Sharon, I can’t find my f*!@n’ [inaudible] [more inaudible].” I’m not sure what he was saying, and frankly, no one else is either.
#2 – Lindsey Lohan – “No officer, my assistant was driving . . . ” Or something like that.
#1 – Rick Perry, Governor of Texas – “Those of you that will be 21 by November the 12th, I ask for your support and your vote.” —Rick Perry, flubbing the voting age (which has been 18 since 1971) and the date of the Nov. 6 election.
Oh, that was fun. Happy New Year!
