What’s the deal 2016!? Stop killing our legends! I know I’m not the first to say it, but this has become the year the legends died. The loss of Gene Wilder this week just pushes that point home.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last week, you’ve probably heard that, legendary comic actor, Gene Wilder passed away this week. Of course, when an artist of his caliber passes away, the world collectively mourns. I’ve mentioned before that I am a very sensitive person. I realize that here it may seem like my only emotion is angry smartass. But I really truly have feelings, all of them. Now I’m not gonna sit here and cry in my cornflakes, as the young kids say. For me, especially with comedians, I try to “remember the laughs not the loss.”
Bullshit From the News
There is a neighborhood in South Carolina where a group of people dressed as clown have been seen wandering around in the nearby woods. They apparently have been trying to lure the neighborhood kids into the woods with large amounts of cash. Fortunately no kids have been harmed, but the story itself is creepy as hell.
A shipment of fruit juice at a Coca-Cola factory was found to contain $74 million in cocaine. When the factory workers opened up the shipment they discovered the drugs and informed the authorities. I don’t know how much $74 million in cocaine is, but I’m picturing a shipping container full of duct tape bricks.
