Holy Diego Maradona Nightmare Fuel G-String Photo, Batman!
“The horror… the horror…
“I’ve seen horrors… horrors that you’ve seen. But you have no right to call me an awful man for posting this photo. You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that… but you have no right to judge me. It’s impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror… Horror has a face… and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies! I remember when I first saw this photo of Diego Maradona wearing a G-string during his more svelte days…seems a thousand centuries ago. I went to Total Pro Sports. And I remember… I… I… I cried, I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my eyes out; I didn’t know what I wanted to do! And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it… I never want to forget. And then I realized… like I was shot… like I was shot with a diamond… a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought, my God… the genius of that! The genius! The will to upload this nightmare fuel! Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. And then I realized they were stronger than me, because they could stand that these were not monsters, these were men… trained bloggers. These men who wrote with their hearts, who had families, who had children, who were filled with love… but they had the strength… the strength… to do that. If I had ten bloggers like these men, the popularity of this site would increase very quickly. You have to have men who are moral… and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to blog without feeling… without passion… without judgment… without judgment! Because it’s judgment that defeats us.
– Colonel Kurtz, if he had been a blogger and not a deranged madman
You know, I suppose those two segments of the human population – blogger and deranged madman – are not as mutually exclusive as one would suspect. Huh. Because what other kind of person other than a complete nutjob would have this photo be the prevailing image on his blog over a long 4th of July weekend? You would have to be crazy to do something like that. But here I am. Doing that. And here you thought the mental image of Jared Allen in a speedo was terrifying. It goes to show there is always something worse – more disturbing, more…yeah…I got nothing.
And now, a little site news: I may or may not write on Monday, July 5th. I will wait and see how the mood strikes me. I am sure you all will get along just fine, but I didn’t want anyone worrying about old Weed.
Enjoy the soccer matches tomorrow, especially the epic matchup between Argentina and Germany. It should be a real humdinger, just as long as Diego doesn’t decide to don the g-string due to a madcap theory that it will bring his squad luck. No one needs to see that.
And a Happy 4th of July to each and every one of you. Be safe, but have fun.
