Just A Friendly Reminder

January 21, 2010

See, I work in a hospital, so I know something that most people kinda sorta know, but most of the time try to ignore:

You are going to die someday.

No, really. You. It will happen to you. And everyone you know! Sometimes it happens to really young people. Sometimes it happens without any warning at all.

There’s no time to lose.

So Mike Tyson enjoyed a great big lovefest for his cameo in The Hangover this Sunday at the Golden Globes. For those who have forgotten, the lovable Mike Tyson is also a convicted rapist.

It seems to me that if one is convicted of rape (a highly unlikely occurrence which generally requires massive amounts of irrefutable evidence), one should lose one’s status as a pop culture hero.

I realize that this is a radical sentiment.

Entertaining as it might be, it would take a lot of time to follow Mike Tyson to various auditions with signs pointing out the fact that he is, in fact, a convicted rapist.

So how’s about from now on, we just don’t pay for movies by directors who knowingly hire convicted rapists to star in their films?

p.s. Roman Polanski can kiss my ass.
