Slow-moving Trespasser

One morning, a few weeks ago, the dogs caught this trespasser lurking around in the inner perimeter.  They barked at him.  They surrounded him.  His response was passive.

Even after the dogs dispersed, the interloper remained in motionless mode for some time. Opossums sort of go unconscious when they Play Possum, though this fellow apparently did not go full swoon.

After the dogs came back in the house, the intruder was left alone for a while.  He moved to leave. First he tried to climb the fence.  That proved too strenuous.  He then moved to the gate, which presumably he squeezed under,  for all of a sudden this phlegmatic interloper was gone.

Pop Culture Frenzy, Round 58

Welcome once again to Pop Culture Frenzy.

"Comedian" Kathy Griffin has created quite a stir with her, er, art.  Unless you've been in a coma for the past 48 hours, you've heard about it.  In this round everyone gets one turn to answer.

What did Griffin do?

Bonus question.  Why did she do it?


She made a statement of outrage toward
 the authoritarian violence that Donald Trump represents.
You know, you whiners never cared when Obama 
was treated with more disrespect than any president ever.
  How about what Ted Nugent said?  You guys don't mind that!

Hostmaster:  Molly?

She posed with a fake head that looks
 like President Trump covered in blood.
  I think she was trying to be funny.
  I don't get how it's funny.

Hostmaster:  Bryan?

She put on make-up and a blank expression
 and held up a beheaded Donald Trump. 
 The audacity of the stunt is not amusing but sure got attention.
  When she apologized, she said she moved the line,
 then crossed it.

Hostmaster:  Fluffy?

She said she wanted to do something
 big, new, political.  Evidently inspired by those
 zany ISIS freaks, she did a photo shoot featuring
 herself holding the bloody severed
 head of the President of the United States.

Hostmaster:  Kathy Griffin is a third rate hack who specializes in crassness.  There is an audience for it.  Once, accepting an award somewhere, she told Jesus to "suck it".

As a rule, I have no sympathy for people who do something stupid then apologize only after being called out on it.  But I actually pity Kathy Griffin.  She is evidently so desperate for attention that no low is too low.  Her desire to be edgy, to be significant, has led her to ever uglier infamy.  She's still not satisfied.  Now she's suing members of the Trump family for opining on her base performance. She claims they are "bullying" her.

Someone needs to remind this pathetic clown that we all have the right to expression, including pointing out that she is a  repugnant no-talent fishwife.

So ends this round.

Round 58

Bryan/Cyndi    23
