Random Thoughts: How to Make a Better Sitcom

I honestly thought being horrible at president would matter more at the polls.

I can see the argument that Romney would suck as president, but that he’d be worse than Obama seems preposterous.

I thought the Civil War documentary Community episode was the best ever, but the Law & Order one may have beaten it.

I have an idea: a sitcom set in… wait for it… New York City.

I don’t like politics. If it stayed out of my way, I’d stay out of its.

Fire Dan Savage. Or at least take his lunch money.

Does it disturb you that we never found anything out about Bamm-Bamm’s true parentage? Just one of life’s unsolved mysteries.

So when am I notable enough to be on Wikipedia? Someone doesn’t officially exist until you can prove they do on Wikipedia.

Watching the live 30 Rock delayed for Mountain Time off of DVR.

They should do a new Star Wars special edition where Han fires round after round into an unarmed Greedo who’s begging for mercy.

Got a really long, one star review from someone who obviously didn’t read my book and thought it was serious.

  1. Savage looks like a guy who had so many swirlies in high school it’s a miracle he didn’t drown. Now he makes stuff up to try to make his former tormentors feel lame. It’s what we used to do to bullies before the government swooped in and solved bullying.

    I’ve spent most of my adult life working in New York and it’s not funny. Don’t know why anyone would set a sitcom there. The only one that ever kind of seemed authentic was The Odd Couple. Yes, they will steal your shoes if you fall asleep on the subway.

    Bamm-Bamm’s dad was Gazoo. Explains his weird superhuman strength.


  2. @DamnCat,

    I always wonder about people who write things like that. They seem to spend their days looking around for things to use as toilet paper. Toilet paper isn’t really that expensive.


  3. Does it disturb you that we never found anything out about Bamm-Bamm’s true parentage? Just one of life’s unsolved mysteries.

    Wow, I’m such a partisan hack that when I read “Bamm-Bamm” there, I thought you were talking about Obama at first. And then I was thinking, “Well, we don’t know much about his parents, but we do know who they are at least, so what’s Frank talking abou…” Then I got the Flintstone reference.

    Maybe I should quit spending so much time on politics.


  4. Came across this today; proof that politicians not only lie about what they believe, but are willing to tell titanic whoppers to get what they want:

    “The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it.”

  5. FrankJ:

    Which of the one-star reviews of your book are you referring to here?

    The one that stated from the reviewer that said he felt ” cheated despite the appealing price of free.”?
    Or the one that called it a “mess of pottage?”
    Or another one?

    Thanks for clearing this up.

    Best Regards,

    Monkey Faced Liberal
