1. a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.
This historic weekend was kicked off by our horrific excuse for a “president” picking fights with Australia and other allies, as so exquisitely trolled by the incomparable, inestimable, invaluable Saturday Night Live:
A) SNL on TODDLER TRUMP & PRESIDENT BANNON
B) SNL on MUSLIM TRAVEL BAN
C) SNL on SEAN SPICER:
While we’re at it, WOW, Melissa McCarthy as Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer is an absolute MUST SEE. It is THE best, and if you don’t agree she -he- may have to punch you in the FACE. What an purely indomitable goddess she is.
THEN, after cooking and cleaning all day and having friends over (okay, hubby did all the cooking of course – sadly no photos of his incredible spread), Superbowl Sunday offered what is apparently the most historic game in all of football. The indefatigable Patriots even fashioned themselves into legit underdogs for the first three quarters, falling behind an astounding 28-3, only to come back and tie it up for the first Superbowl O.T. in history, and then WINNING. Now that right there may be all I’ll ever write about football; that’s how amazing this game was, it even made *ME* care for a little while.
But even if you don’t care about football, there are the COMMERCIALS, of which there were some true winners this year. Such as this beautiful and courageous reminder of our history from Anheuser-Busch:
1 of 3) THIS BUD’S FOR YOU
I don’t like their beer or even consider theirs to be actual real beer, but I intend to vote for them with some of my dollars anyway.
2 of 3) WALL OF OPPORTUNITY
Next up, the biggest surprise from the (heretofore unknown by me) 84 Lumber Company, which is reportedly pro-Trump (and presumably pro-Wall)… but the amazing piece they made here is a MUST SEE:
3 of 3) WHAT MAKES AMERICA BEAUTIFUL
Lastly, from arguably the most successful advertising giant on the planet, this simply beautiful message from Coca-Cola.
Final thought from the weekend, a retweet from my aforementioned comedian friend Dana Jay Bein:
Although I am personally no longer anti-electoral college, and I am not in favor of negativity, but I do fully endorse the importance of comedy, and I love DJB’s fierceness in simply saying,
“Eat a dick. Orange Dracula.”
I mean, I don’t know if I could ever say that, but I’m glad somebody did, is all I’m saying.
