Don’t try tell me about patriotism, hombre.
Y’think you’re a patriot? Y’think you love America? Y’think you’ve bled red, white, and blue for the nation?
Well, who am I t’say y’haven’t? Nobody. So I won’t.
But let me just give you a hypothetical. What if there was a guy who somehow figured out how to travel to different realities? Y’know, like, different dimensions. And what if every time he went to a different reality, it wreaked havoc on his body? And what if we ain’t talkin’ `bout no minor headache – we’re talkin’ about bleedin’ from the eyes and bones feelin’ like they’re breakin’ and lungs wheezin’ out but not fillin’ up and vomitin’ out the ass and a really bad genital rash?
Y’know, like how it is after takin’ some really quality club drugs.
Anyways, back to my point. So, what if – just what if – despite all of negative repercussions, this guy keeps on travelin’ to different realities? And what if this transdimensional sojournin’ wasn’t for recreational purposes, but for patriotic ones? Y’know, like, a fact-findin’ mission. Go on enough to find out how different scenarios play out, and y’might be able to help your nation steer away from the Sirens and towards Valhalla.
“If this went that way and that went this way, well, then we’d be better off! What if `ole Jelly Bean Reagan didn’t run for a second term? What if Baby Hitler choked on a chicken bone? What if? What if?!”
So, despite killin’ himself slowly – and surely – this guy keeps hoppin’ into different realities, all for the sake of givin’ Uncle Sam the fullest report possible. Would y’call this guy a patriot?
Apologies if I come across as rambunctious, I just always get whupped up on Presidents’ Day.
But, as President RFK once said, “Get me a coffee, a copy of the Times, and an answer as to why the hell we don’t have a moonbase yet!”
Welcome to the MONDAY MORNING COMMUTE!
Now that you’ve survived some drivel-fiction, it’s time to share what we’ll all be doing this week. Y’know, to survive the grind of the day-to-day.
What albums, books, movies, video games, beers, roller coasters, pharmaceuticals, aerobics classes, or foodstuffs will you be using as protective padding these next few days?
I love both In The Loop and Veep. So, I imagine I’ll love this satirical movie tackling the Soviet Union by their creator, Armando Iannucci.
Tom Hardy’s Venom movie has added veteran Veep actor Reid Scott to its cast. Fucking dope, dude.
Veep is fantastic. It has been fantastic for a long time, and has definitely been fantastic for far longer than any right it had to be. So while I’m bummed the show is ending after its next season, I’m excited to see what the creative team can do when they’re faced with the freedom of a series ending.
HBO has revealed the Drop Date for their beefy trifecta of programming that usually carries us through the Spring and into the Summer. April 24!
