Oh, don’t you just love these brainless Hollywood types who manage to remember one vaguely interesting and “like, you know, spiritual-sounding” word and then insist on letting it roll off their tongues whenever the opportunity arises — like they actually know what they’re talking about?
I refer, of course, to Sharon Stone’s ridiculous comments attributing the recent earthquakes in China to “karma”. To quote:
“I’m not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don’t think anyone should be unkind to anyone else. And then all this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and I thought, is that karma?”
Yes, people, the Chinese (not even the Chinese government — the Chinese) brought it on themselves. Because bad things happen to bad people. Aw, shucks, I’m so glad she cleared that one up for me.
Say what you will about Ms. Stone, however, but one thing I’m fairly sure about is that nothing bad will happen to her. Because she isn’t bad. No, now don’t look like that. She isn’t — she’s simply, and quite clearly, very, very stupid.
Now, before I post this link, let me just preface it with a wee disclaimer.
- I know this isn’t typical of Americans. Most are surprisingly normal, once you get to know them (although you, my friend, can be a bit of a nutter when you’ve had a few… or even when you haven’t ) So I’m not American-bashing.
- Christians are people, too. And a large percentage of them are actually really great human beings who think Darwin rocks and don’t even believe in Hell anymore. So this isn’t a Christian-bashing piece.
- Stupid people deserve respect. They are… oh, sorry, no, wait! Scratch that. This is a stupid-people-bashing piece!
So, to the article. This just cracked me up. Not only because it’s just so amazingly self-centred and disproportionate (sorry, people, God’s a bit preoccupied in China and Burma right now), but also because, well, it’s got a former beauty queen (I’m assuming that that means she’s ugly now) and someone called Rocky in it.
Oh, and if that doesn’t make you smile (I am, admittedly, easily pleased) how about this?
“These prices will come down, just like the walls of Jericho came down in the Bible.”
Does this mean he’s planning on sounding his horn?
