Last week James Franco got roasted on Comedy Central. As far as celebrity roasts go, this one was pretty good. The actor/writer/producer/poet/painter/student/teacher/all-round renaissance man took his comedy jabs and pounded out a few licks as well.
The most popular theme to attack the guest of honor that night was his sexuality. Whatever it really is, he was a great sport about it.
Now that the show has run and re-run a billion times, a voice in the crowd has risen up – and he’s just as entertaining if not more than those chosen to “roast” Franco. His name is Guy Branum and not unlike the political parties, he's taken on the mantle of delivering the rebuttal to the often offensive statements made traditionally at these events. Call Guy B. the Marco Rubio or Rand Paul of the alternative party. Only he's funny and has something meaningful to say, even if not electable.
Take a moment and enjoy. Politically correct this ain't... and I'm so glad for that.
A smile leads to another smile. Happiness leads to more happiness, and satire leads to... more happiness. I was a bit skeptical when I started watching this video courtesy of College Humor, but it's subtlety and acute sense of what America has become and actually could evolve to is highly smile provoking. So if you've got two minutes, you can spend it wisely here with something that might make your day, of go worry and fixate about something you can't control and will be eating you up for the next few hours.
Enjoy, and just think, someday this could be you:
Some things bear repeating. Some things bear repeating. Okay, that wasn't one of them. Well, sort of, it is.
A guarantee is a promise, an assurance that something is proper, correct or sure. But it's only as good at the maker. So it's a matter of trust and generally isn't tossed around lightly. You're staking your reputation on it when you give a personal guarantee.
One of America's most respected actors, two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington has something important to say to you. You're going to want to hear it, I guarantee it.
Thank you, Official Comedy.
How could someone who lived so long ago have such insight into mankind? Well, perhaps over time he's been credited with a few things he didn't actually say.
So I did some research and fortunately, I've found his book. I consider it a Nostradamus Predicts of Chinese proverbs. How amazingly prescient he was. Judge for yourself. Here's a few sayings I found that I'd like to share with you. If they resonate, I'm happy. If not, hey, it was Confucius, not me.
