The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2018)


Haiku comments: ‘One wonders if this is not part of some cunning ploy on Hollywood’s part to wipe out piracy by creating excruciatingly unwatchable shows.’

And as for missed premieres, Chuckles offers this:

… and comments: ‘Not to be tossed lightly aside, but rather hurled with great force.’

3. Here’s a good one:

An Interview with an Anonymous Algorithmic Trader

Chuckles comments: ‘Bollox.’

4. The situation explained:

5. The hegemony of Gen X usually precludes this sort of criticism:

We all work 40-60 hours a week. We commute 10. And after another 15 hours of chores and basic requirements of life, what few precious hours of freedom we have we cherish and value above all else. And it is those few hours of freedom that ultimately determine the happiness and enjoyment we get out of life. And the hell if we’re going to ruin it with politics.

But tell that to the Gen X’ers who now command the majority of CSR, marketing, and advertising departments in Corporate America and Hollywood. Talentless, fresh-out-of-ideas, unoriginal, and common, these low-IQ marketing heads only know the one trick they were taught in business school and that is “politics-trumps profits,” “corporate virtue signaling,” and “jam your socialist politics into the fun of everybody else.”

They have no value except the politics they were spoon-fed in college, and think the rest of society is equally valueless, also desperately clinging a parasitic socialist ideology as their only core value in life. And so any sort of fun MUST have some sort of socialist sermon, lecture, moral, or proselytizing forced in it, thus putting a turd in America’s punch bowl of fun.

6. EU goes full Orwell:

7. Last but not least, M&S Valentine’s love sausage, eh? Biting the lip here – nope, no comment from me:

      Would an exception not be made for our love sausages?

    It was certainly inspiring to hear Donald Trump pledge to bring in immigrants in “the largest numbers ever.”

    The Wall was an election stunt. Now he thinks he’s going to have real trouble getting re-elected he’s trying to pull the same three-card trick again. Trump is a pro-immigration fanatic.

      Yes, thought you might miss what he’s doing. Post coming up on it.
