Better not say that G-word

Aren’t funerals usually a time when the living are offering their pain up to their chosen deity?

In one example cited in documents filed this week in federal court, cemetery director Arleen Ocasio reportedly told volunteers with the National Memorial Ladies that they had to stop telling families “God bless you” at funerals and that they had to remove the words “God bless” from condolence cards.

Jones said he has presented shell casings from the gun salute to veterans’ grieving family members at funerals in Houston National Cemetery for the past three years.

But after a burial ceremony May 16, Jones said a government official told him he could no longer recite the words he always says when he hands over the shells: “We ask that God grant you and your family grace, mercy and peace.”

I’m trying to understand what kind of person seeks a job as a cemetery director and then tries to take comfort away from grieving families.  If someone had complained about all that Goddiness at a funeral, you’d think Arleen Ocasio would have mentioned it somewhere along the line, seeing as a federal case is being made of this.

Chris Hansen caught on camera – at least she’s legal.

Politics has been annoying/boring/unbelievably stupid lately so I figured it was time for something really important.

Who is the hottest Maid Marian? Updated below, right after the foxy one. No, the foxy redhead. No, the foxy redhead without the cleavage.

Now, there have been too many Maid Marians for me to really feel like looking for pics of actresses from 1912, so we’ll go with the ones I feel like.

First up, the oldest there are any good pics out there

Olivia de Havilland

Classy hot like you don’t see anymore.

Next up, Morgan Fairchild from the TV movie, The Zany Adventures of Robin Hood. Why include her when nobody even knew she was Maid Marian?

Any more questions smarty pants? Next to Farrah, she epitomized big hair hotties, and she had the…uhhh…. assets Farrah lacked.

Next, because she was a Playboy Bunny, we have Misty Rowe

Not too bad, in a trashy, here put this in your mouth until the swelling goes down, kind of way. Plus the show was funny.

Getting into modern time, we have Amy Yasbeck, who likes men in tights and who almost did the most disgusting thing she could think of.

Wait, that’s not right

Mmmmm, Dark Ages cleavage……………

Next we have one foxy broad, Carole Shelley

Rowr.Owwoooooooooo!

Had to add a new entry,Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, the Marian with the hardest name to spell correctly, a feat in a group with Olivia de Havillande.

Definitely smoking hot, but she still doesn’t make me change my mind.

Now, back to our regularly, scheduled post.

We’re up to Uma, the Marian who could not speak with a British accent

She looks like a nun in her Maid Marian outfit, pretend this is her after a few mugs of  Friar Tuckman’s sacrificial wine.

Getting to the most recent, we come to one of the worst casting errors since Keanu Reaves played a genius scientist, Cate Blanchett as “Maid” Marian. When that book was written, she was probably thought of as about 13. Cate Blanchett hasn’t looked like a “maid” since she was about 8, but eh, I already downloaded the pic.

Since it’s my post, I’m picking

And the winner is……..

How did I never hear of this company until now?

Fuck you Fast Eddie, fuck you very much, you commie piece of Philly detritus.

White man privilege

That’s what this is all about, I’m sure.  Allowing a gentleman (?!) dressed like this to board a plane while asking an African-American college student whose pants are down around his thighs is all about race and nothing else.

Marman’s attorney, Joe O’Sullivan, said his client had been stereotyped by US Airways as a thug, and that the airline was guilty of racial discrimination for asking Marman to adjust his clothes. Marman is African American.

“It just shows the hypocrisy involved,” O’Sullivan said after he viewed the photo of the cross-dressing passenger. “They let a drag queen board a flight and welcomed him with open arms. Employees didn’t ask him to cover up. He didn’t have to talk to the pilot. They didn’t try to remove him from the plane — and many people would find his attire repugnant.”

O’Sullivan added, “A white man is allowed to fly in underwear without question, but my client was asked to pull up his pajama pants because they hung below his waist.”

I love it when persecuted minorities get in catfights over who’s more persecuted.  I’m sure the lawsuit against US Airways had nothing to do with their reluctance to take on someone else with regards to their attire.

I can’t say I’m a huge fan of Glenn Beck, although I find him occasionally amusing, but the way he and his family were recently allegedly treated in a NYC public fucking park–where they, as he pointed out, had every right to be–is a fucking disgrace.

Heaven knows there are plenty of public figures who I loathe, but I’d like to think I could restrain my inner jagoff from coming out for a couple of hours if I found myself seated next to them while we were both just trying to enjoy a nice evening out. Especially if they were with family or friends who have absolutely nothing to do with their work.

Oh, and by the way, assholes, way to give Beck an opportunity to talk about the boorish behavior of the famously “Tolerant Left” at length.
