Quantum of stupid

I don’t know why Cindy Sheehan popped into my head this afternoon (her presence somehow made it emptier up there). Turns out, she’s got a radio show. And, while I’m sure it’s full of all kinds of comedic gems, I got as far as Tommy Chong and my brain exploded.

Cindy Sheehan interviews Tommy Chong.


I kind of hate myself for posting this. I feel more than a little sorry for both these characters — two fundamentally damaged people who were badly and very publicly used (if not quite in the way they believe they were).

On the other hand — Cindy Sheehan interviews Tommy Chong.


Transcript here. Or listen here (skip ten minutes in; the first lady has a voice — no shit — even more annoying than Cindy’s).

Or — you know what? Don’t. I don’t want a bunch of nukular cerebrums on my conscience.

I’m surprised it didn’t create a black hole of stupidity and suck us all into our doom. There’s no way in hell I’m wading into that mess.

Not gonna listen, I have still have Up In Smoke on VHS, it still works and I still giggle like a retard every time I watch it. Listening to Tommy Chong talk to Cindy Sheehan might ruin that. Yes this does make me a hippocrite but I have so few pleasures left.

I don’t really recommend listening, Spad, but I don’t think it would ruin Chong for you. They’re both too off the wall.

By the way — unless there’s something I’m missing — I really think the case against Chong was complete shit. First, there shouldn’t be laws against paraphernalia. Second, it wasn’t his company. And third — hard time for selling bongs? Really?!

The war on drugs really does suck. But, as I have not been a stoner for many, many years, I don’t put my energies there.

Weasel I agree with you about his bust.I was at a gathering at my buddys house recently where my godson and some of his freinds were smoking (tobacco) an honest to god hooka from Turkey. I asked his dad the customs agent how they got it. He said you can by them in “ethnic” shops now because that is considered “cultural” and not paraphernalia. On the other hand Tommy goes to jail for mail order bongs.

For a second there I thought it was that Carradine dude. You know Cindy, meets Kwai Chang Kane. My synapses went, WTF?

I can only take so much stupidity in one day…I’m a high school teacher, I’ve reached my limit.

For the month.

And that’s just today.

The drug bust was totally bullshit. I heard him in an interview a while back and the cops asked him if he had any drugs in the house and he said his was response was “Dude, I’m Tommy Chong“.

Hold on a second…
Does Cindy Sheehan really say … ON AIR… that she has stopped paying her income taxes in protest?!?! Where the blue-haired flip is the IRS? Cindy better be glad no one actually listens to her show….

Oh wait….on second thought, a scrawny, shrill, scrunt who has been thouroughly used by the left and is trying to “re-invent” herself at the far end of the AM dial probably doesn’t earn enough to have to pay taxes….

I tried to read the transcript. So far I’m stuck at “Today is a super duper edition of Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox” like a barge on a sandbank. I can’t seem to move beyond it. I didn’t think anyone said “super duper” anymore, even on the Noggin channel.

“Tommy Chong: Well, I, you know, personally, you know, the more laws you can get rid of, you know, the better.”

I wonder if he writes like he, you know, speaks. . .

I hate to go all off topic and everything….but this just needs to be mentioned.

But Zsa Zsa’s husband, Prinz Frederich Von Anhalt (which I believe is German for “Prince Freddie the Asshole”)wants to, upon her death, preserve Zsa Zsa’s withered carcass, via the “plastination” process….

This way he can bestow upon all of us a veritable eternity for the veneration of Zsa Zsa, who, as he sees it, is still quite a looker at 93.

I hereby repudiate my pick of her in the Death Pool and I also wish, for all that I am worth, that she might live forever….

Who is that guy in mythology who wished to live forever….and ended up withering up into a grasshopper?

Yeah…Zsa Zsa should live forever… just like that…..

(Try to “plastinate” her after she turns into some withered old locust, Azhoul.)

Off topic is my favorite topic, steve! And when I read that, my first thought was, “oh, noes! She up and died!”

Plastinating Zsa Zsa would be a pretty good band name though.

Ah, Jeez Lousie! Nope, not gonna click on the link, and nobody can make me. Just the concept is enough, thenkyewveddymuch.

I feel bad for Tommy, because he’s a burned out headcase who doesn’t appear to have had nearly as much on the ball as did, or does Cheech Marin. I can’t decide whether I feel more contempt than pity for that Sheehan creature, who has turned her life into an insane quest to dishonor her son’s memory.

Fortunately our war dead live on in a far better place than Cindy will ever know. And perhaps her colossal lack of self awareness insulates her from the knowledge of what she has made herself into.

You’re kidding. I wouldn’t even admit to having seen a movie with that line in it…

Also not listening to Mother Sheehan’s Hour of Drivel.

I’m feeling contrary today…
