Reader Mail: Carole Writes In From Japan


Reader Carole writes in with an email from post-tsunami Japan:

——
Subject: Thank you for Christopher Walken video

Dear Sir,
I live in Japan, about 100km from areas totally wiped out by the tsunami and the earthquake on Friday. I have been without power or water since then, but today I got internet access for about an hour. Ive been using twitter to contact people, but today I got to a laptop to check news sites. I also checked your site because I do that every week. Friday is my favourite day because of the thoughts and links. The Christopher Walken video you posted today made me laugh. Thank you, because it’s been a living nightmare here. I can’t explain the destruction because I can’t process it. But today i felt like I got a shred of sanity back because I laughed at your site. I know many people email hate to you and your site, but I’m sending love.
Thank you,
– Carole

I don’t mention the real world too often in our little collective corner of silliness on the web, but my thoughts are with you Carole, and all the people in Japan. Here’s some more to keep your spirits up: Walken reads Gaga.

I want Christopher Walken to be the new voice of the Aflac duck now that Gilbert got shit-canned.

Take care of yourself, Carole! You may not see this post for awhile, but just know that we hatters are thinking about all of you over there who are actually suffering.

There is no douchebag in a Vegas pool nor Wallace/Bleeth in a UCLA library who really understands what’s going on over there.

I still prefer Gordon Pinsent reading Justin Bieber.

@CND, hilarious. Josh Groban singing Kanye West Tweets always makes me smile. I would provide a proper hyperlink, but I don’t know how to URL my Google tags.

@Carole, glad you’re okay. I really want to make a joke about how it must be fun to hear your name pronounced over there, but I am no Gilbert Goddfried or UCLA bimbo. I’m one of the good ones, who keeps it to themselves…most of the time. My thoughts are with you. Sometimes a sense of humor is the only thing we have to keep us going through even the darkest of times.

I honestly don’t know what I’d do without this site.

No kidding you can’t process it, Carole. I can’t process it, and I’m just looking at news footage and pictures. It’s too big, too much destruction.
.
Fuck, we’re supposed to be funny with the mocking of douche and lusting of hott in here, aren’t we. Umm…
.
Sorry, got nothin’ right now. Best of luck, Carole, and hang in there. This, too, shall pass.

Japan needs more cowbell.

Stay positive, Carole, and good luck…
.
And don’t take any assistance from priests wearing bowling shirts with the name “Lucky” on the pocket…
.
… or “Chip” either

I hate to sound like a jackass, but, what Christopher Walken video?
.
Best of luck to you, Carole. Take care of yourselves, I wish I could send money or somethin’.

DB1: nice pull on the “Brainstorm” pic…

Walken stole this silly routine from Steve Allen…he used to read 50’s-60’s rock and roll lyrics…yeah it’s funny. I’d rather see him doing a good movie though…instead of just playing the weirdo role.

Well Hell, Carole; I guess I have to pass the baton of “Most Fucked Over By Natural Disasters (Katrina – MS Gulf Coast) and Man-Made Cluster_Fuckks (Katrina – NOLA & BP Dolphin Killing Sludge-Fest) over to you guys.
.
I know from experience that all the news videos and photographs will never convey the scale of devastation you are seeing. Like Joseph Stalin (Douche Supreme) once said: “The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic”. He may have been a narcissistic asshole, but he correctly analyzed the failure of the indirectly and passively affected human brain to grasp the scale and horror of mass human tragedy.
.
Hang in there.

I did see him doing a lovely film though ¦instead of playing the weirdo role.
