MAN CARDS REVOKED
As regular listeners of the Saturday program know, there have been famous individuals who have had their “Man Cards” revoked for doing unmanly things. Many will think this is a joke. It’s not. To have your Man Card revoked takes a serious offense against manhood; behavior that is unbecoming. When an offense is publicized and an individual is nominated, it is brought up with the board of executives that are involved in the production of the program.Should the majority vote against the individual, their Man Card is revoked. In the long history of the Saturday program, only 3 have had their man cards pulled.
It was Thanksgiving Day 2009, Tiger (who normally would have received an “uber” man card for his behavior) failed to understand the importance of having a “B-phone.” Things quickly got out of hand as his ex-wife beat the hell out of him with a golf club after sharing some turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. One by one the strippers and “Waffle House" waitresses came forward.
OFFENSE: Getting the hell beat out of him by his wife, having to “apologize” in front of his mother, having to write a check for hundreds of millions of dollars.
EPILOG: He now has two telephones, an "A" and "B" phone.
Where do we start? Here is arguably one of the most high-profile basketball coaches in the country. He picks up a woman at an Italian restaurant in Louisville. He has sex with her in a booth after the place closes. She claims she’s pregnant. He is said to have paid for her abortion. Then the real extortion began. He is then made to testify in court the sex was quick, lasting onlya few seconds and that it went…well…never mind. Cheating on his wife? Abortion? Not really the way a self-proclaimed serious Catholic is to act.
OFFENSE: Being stupid and the 3 or 4 seconds thing is really disturbing to any Italian (refer questions to "The Situation" on Jersey Shore).
EPILOG: Pitino is working on restoring not only his man card, but also his Italian card.
He’s an actor and we’re not really sure what he’s famous for other than being married to Courtney Cox, the actress from the TV show “Friends.” Therein, the problem. She dumped him. What does he do? He goes on Howard Stern’s Sirius radio show and cries. Stern even tries to cheer him up by asking what it’s like to get some “new.” He still cries for her.OFFENSE: You never fight over a woman (refer to Saturday program Rule #4) and you never cry over a woman. Why? Because there are more women on Earth than men.EPILOG: Starting to discover the “new” and how good that “new” can be.UPDATE: Mr. Courteney Cox is now a member of the cast on the new season of Dancing With The Stars.Normally this would be another offense againstone's Man Card, but The Executive Committee has concluded no further action against Arquetteis required. Besides the producersofDWTS must be reaching the bottom of the barrel if they consider him a"star." Nancy Grace is a cast member too. Need we say more?
The ultimate fail one man can do to another is to reveal an affair. Look it up. It’s right up there with Man Card rules like talking to the guy next to you at a urinal. No man shall EVER make it publicly known another has some “side beef.” Seems Gordon is mad and has accused his in-lawsof running his business empire into the dirt. If they have a name, he’s suing them. That includes his father-in-law. Sure suing the in-laws will make those holiday dinners somewhat tense. Some would say that alone is unforgiveable. The lawsuit family plan wasn’t enough for our “Kitchen Nightmare,” however. He decided to go all scorched earth policy and sue the alleged mistress of his father-in-law. This is where he runs a “fowl” of the Man Card rules. Sure the old man may be “porking” someone on the side. Sure he should have kept is “wiener” in his pants. It should be in a man’s
He's going to kill himself. He doesn't care. He's uber rich. He's uber famous and he can outlast anyone when it comes to drinking, drugs, sex and porno. The honor of the first ever "Uber Man Card" goes to Reds' fan and (kind of) product of Ohio, Charlie Sheen.
Little did we know when he was found wastedon $10,000 a bottle wine, blow and with his pants around his ankles in a restaurant bathroom and then proceeding to bust up a hotel room in NYC, he was only warming up.
EVIDENCE OF UBER-NESS: Just prior to being awarded the "Uber Man Card" he ended up in the hospital because he "aggravated a hernia" laughing too hard at TV. Sure. Chuck.Rumor has ithe(a) had been partying for 36-hours straight, (b) was watching non-stop porno, (c) was hanging with5 porno actresses, one he seemed to pay $30,000 just to hang out,(d)was getting hammered on hard liquor, (e) had a brief case filled with cocaine delivered to him. All this and he survived, except for the laughing too hard thing. One of the porno actresses even commented she was amazed at the amount of porno he had! Awesome!
EPILOG: Has set the new high water mark for "gonzo" partying. Even Lindsay Lohan can't keep up with him and has acknowledged, "No mas. No mas."
Winning! EARL JONES (Verona, KY)
The “Verona Vigilante” is 92 years young and NOT to be messed with. He worked on the Enola Gay during WWII. That's the plane that droppedthe A-Bomb on Japan. That alone should warn any punks that want to mess with him, but no. Three failed to heed the warning. One is now room temperature.On the morning of September 3, 2012, a group of 20-somethings decided to hassle Mr. Jones one more time. The “Verona Vigilante” was ready, along witha trusted friend. Mr. Jones sat with his rifle waiting for his basement door to open.EVIDENCE OF UBER-NESS: Three young men decided to drop by and pay Mr. Jones an early morningvisit around 2am.Thinking he was 92 years of age and probably had a few dollars they could steal easily, one broke into his basement. Earl, whose hearing appears to be just fine, heard the noise from below. He grabbed his 22-rifle and waited for the punk to come up the stairs. When the door opened…BANG! And backwards down the stairs thepunk went. Wounded, the punk made it back to the escape car where he died with his two accomplices’. When asked if he felt badly about killing the punk, he had no remorse.Earl Jones, Verona, KY’s own “Paul Kersey,” the Charles Bronson character from the movie series “Death Wish.” “You believe in Jesus? Well you’re gonna meet him.” BANG!EPILOG: No charges brought against Mr. Jones. One punk is dead. Two going to trial and heading to the big house to serve as "jail bait." When asked about pulling the trigger he felt his aim was a little off. He said hewas trying to shoot thepunk in the heart for an instant kill."Go ahead. Make Earl's day!"
As the old saying goes, "A picture says a thousand words."
In the hills of Kentucky, Danny Hafley has something to say. Deep political thoughts. So he's exercising his God given and 1st Amendment rights as an "Uhmerikun." (Sorry Gary. My apologies.)
Through clever use of "stereotyping," Mr. Hafley is letting us know what he thinks of the President and the job he's doing. Danny's acts of expression and speech are protected under "numero uno" in the Bill of Rights, as it should.
When questioned on the clever meaning of his effigy, Danny replied, “That’s my buddy. He don’t talk. Don’t make no smart comments."
But, Mr. Hafley seems to be missing the ultimate irony in this tale of "stereotyping" in America.
#1 Danny Halfley lives in "Kentucky," a commonwealth some perceive and stereotype as a home to racist "rednecks." (Check)
#2 There's the stereotype that Kentucky is populated by uneducated hillbillies who use bad grammar. For example, "He don't talk" should be "He doesn't talk." And "Don't make no smart comments" is using a double negative. (Check)
#3 Look at the picture. It appears Danny lives in a trailer which some would perceive as a stereotypical home of "rednecks" who live in Kentucky. (Check)
I don't believe any of these stereotypes, but there are those that do. So, with Danny exercising his 1st Amendment rights, he's not stereotyping the President. He's stereotyping himself.
I guess that other saying is also true. "Freedom is not free. It comes with a price." Which is really true if you don't think.
