oprah's first time on mgoblog? its painful but short
i have thought about doing this myself, but on national tv the day after superbowl mvp is a little more than i imagined
saw this on deadspin with the caption
"Who just kissed you?" she asked. "God," he should have said, before punching her
Insert foot in mouth.
had she ever seen him before in any capacity?
that thing has been giving me nightmares for over a decade.
Has he had plastic surgery on that thing? Not that I blame him, but I remember it being darker and fuzzier, like a catapiller.
This isn't the best comparison, but it certainly looks different.
I think she was joking....
I hope she was joking...
I don't know. If she was joking, I'd say that would be even more insulting to him.
If that was supposed to be a joke, I would find that even more of an insult.
It would be like going up to a guy with a cauliflower ear and asking him if he had any cheese sauce to go with that.
You don't make jokes at the expense of another physical (or emotional etc) deformities/inadequacies ime (I k now these aren't the PC terms, but since I am not talking about anything specific I didn't feel the need to tax my brain to determine what the exact PC term is for these).
...but having a birthmark on your face isn't a deformity or an inadequacy. I think the term you are looking for is blemish.
Drew Brees has been getting comments about his birthmark ever since he was born. He's over it.
Anybody remember this:
As a Dr. I can say that in my medical opinion it looks like Brees is having treatments on his "blemish" to have it removed. It is much lighter and smaller than it was in college if you compare photos from the two periods of time and this wouldn't happen naturally.
If this is the case, one can deduce that he is not actually "over it" as you say, and could very well find people making jokes about it quite embarrassing.
I guess. It seems much more patronizing to assume that poor Drew was crushed by a remark he's undoubtedly encountered hundreds of times. As a doctor, you'd know better than me whether or not he'd have to wait until he was an adult in order to have it removed. Are there any non-cosmetic reasons to do so?
I am not sure, but then I am also not a dermatologist either. My guess is that perhaps since health care is paid out of pocket in the USA maybe he didn't have the money to get it done previously.
Also, I am not saying he was crushed, but that doesn't make the joke appropriate in any way. I am sure he doesn't LOVE being made fun of in front of millions of people. You don't even have to be a Dr. to know that about the human response.
I recally hearing that he generally wanted to keep the birth-mark as it was, even after he made it to the pros. However, he recently needed to have it removed a precaution against skin cancer. The birth mark may have been a type of mole that finally needed to be removed to reduce risk factors.
On a side note, is anyone else hella pissed that Oprah will be hosting the new series life? For those who don't know life is the next chapter in the planet earth/blue planet series. I love and own the previous 2 on dvd, but I can't help but feel hearing oprah narrate this is going to ruin it for me. Very very upset about this, dumb fat bitch.
But I was also a much bigger fan of David Attenborough's narration on Planet Earth than Sigourney Weaver. Seriously, Attenborough should be the de facto narrator for any nature-related program.
I'm pissed at the fact this bitch has a radio channel on SiriusXM and doesn't explain the rationale of doing a commerical with Jay Leno and David Letterman. Why wouldn't she do a commerical with Howard Stern for SiriusXM?
The commercial with Letterman, Leno, and Oprah was a play on a previous Super Bowl commercial. When Chicago played Indianapolis in Super Bowl XLI, Oprah and Dave did a commercial with just the two of them on the couch. I don't think it has anything to do with a slap in the face of Sirius.
Regarding narrators, I think the all time best narrator of anything is Michigan alum James Earl Jones.
"This . . . is CNN" was epic. And he's a Michigan Man to boot.
I love James Earle Jones and the only person I would prefer listening to talk about anything at all is Keith Jackson. He could narrate Little House on the Prairie and I would love it.
He could have responded with a "so when are you due?"
the haters in this thread are staggering.
it was a joke. jesus
(i saw brees yesterday at Bacchus. dude is officially a God in this state)
So if I had you on a TV show with millions of people watching and put a question to you about that big ugly growth YOU have on the side of your neck to the effect of "WOW, how did you get a clump of bird shit on your neck there buddy....you better be more careful where you walk." That would be fine since I was only joking, but still calling attention to your ugly birdshit like growth on your neck. Your reasoning, to me, is staggering.
I'm sure Drew Brees is crying, snot running down his face, because that big meanie Oprah hurt his widdle feelings on TV.
I don't care if he is crying or not. I am saying that it doesn't matter one ounce whether it was a joke or not. In fact, if it was a joke it makes it even worse IMHE.
Why a grown person would publicy make a joke about something a person might very well find a tad embarrassing (I'm not saying he does, but he could) is beyond me and absolutely unacceptable behaviour by an adult.
If a child did something like this I would find it very offensive, the fact that it is an adult in this case only makes it worse.
As a side note, it seems to me that when you compare his "blemish" now to what it looked like in college it seems evident that he is having treatment to get rid of it (it is much lighter and looks smaller that it did back then). If this is indeed the case, it would be reasonable to assume that he is a little embarrassed by its presence on his face.
