Nation of bedwetters, Part XLIV

Fort Bragg evacuated because... they received a robo-call in French from a Haitian candidate doing his Crazy Eddy(*) pitch for votes in Creole French, and they thought it was a bomb threat because the dumb fucks can't tell the difference between French and Arabic.

SIiiiiiiiiiiigh! Moron America. If we got any dumber, we'd disappear as a nation into a black hole of suck. Hmm, come to think about it, that seems to be what's happening anyhow... SIIiiiiiigh!

(*) Crazy Eddy was a used car salesman in my youth who had a regular television commercial that ran during the cheap time of day, in the afternoon. He screamed at the top of his lungs at the TV camera urging people to come on down to Crazy Eddy's Used Cars for his crazy, crazy prices. Err, right...


  1. lol, Happy Turkey Day BadTux

  2. During my school days in Indiana (80s) we had TV commercials for Don's Guns in Indianapolis:

    "I don't want to make any money, folks, I just love to rent/sell guns."

    I saw a few Crazy Eddie commercials -- before he went to prison.

  3. The Crazy Eddie *I* remember was Eddie Antar, who sold electronics in the greater NYC area in the 70s and 80s... before he got indicted on about a zillion counts of everything...

  4. BTW, happy Thanksgiving, BT. Seems like you're having one helluva vacation...

  5. This country gets more stupid everyday, it deserves to fail, it was just an experiment anyway.

  6. Headline from 2014: "U.S. Army surrenders to man in turban who jumped from behind a bush and yelled 'Boo!'"

  7. In the mid-80s, while working on Lon gIsland, one of my co-workers bought a VCR from one of "Crazy Eddie's" stores. It didn't work, ate the tape and he was unable to get the tape out again. I seem to remember he had trouble getting his money back and never did get the tape back.

    I thought the military was fucked up during the late 60s, but now it seems to be dumber and more fucked up than ever. We need to bring back the draft to raise the collective IQ of the military!!

  8. AS the Late, very missed Molly Ivins would express it: "If the country got any dumber, we'd have to water it twice a day."
