Michele Bachmann confuses John Wayne with serial killing rapist

So, if you’re from the same small town as someone famous, wouldn’t you know that?

More so, if you were from the same small town as one of the most infamous serial killers of all time, wouldn’t you know that as well?

During one of what seemed like five or six campaign announcements, the always-entertaining Michele Bachman explained she was kicking off her presidential campaign in Waterloo, Iowa, because John Wayne was from Waterloo and she wants people to know that she’s like him, or something.

Only it’s John Wayne GACY, the killer clown who raped, tortured, and killed 33 teenage boys in the 1970s, who’s from Waterloo. John Wayne was from Winterset, Iowa.

This is going to be an enjoyable 16 months.

Sean Bean gets cut, finishes beer

I don’t want to glorify violence … well, maybe a little.

Sean Bean, from “Game of Thrones” and Boromir in “The Lord of the Rings,” was at the bar in London with his Playboy bunny girlfriend – we’ve all been there – when some drunk fool who doesn’t know how many ugly creatures this guy hacks up with his sword began making comments aimed at his girlfriend.

 

So they got into it outside, the guy cut him on the arm, and instead of going to the hospital, he went back into the bar and have another drink.

I’m not saying this is appropriate behavior, kids. I’m just saying it’s a great way to get chicks.

Best day of the year

It’s the first day after school’s out. What a glorious time. Oh sure, the kids are around more to bother me, and in a month, I’ll be on my knees, desperately praying for the school district to suddenly decide year-round school is the only way to save the children, as well as something far more important – its funding.
