“You’re Fired!” J. Edgar Comey et al

OMG!  No this firing of J. Edgar Comey as brought to us by the Talking Heads of the Mass Hysteria sounds like it’s double OMG which readers of this column know, is so bad there is nothing beyond it.  Double OMG is the end.  Now we said sounds like its double OMG, not actual double OMG, because it seems that the Talking Heads and the rest of the Mass Hysteria, have never watched The Apprentice.  If they did they’d know that the climax of most episodes was when the, wanna be Apprentices would be brought into the Board Room and there, The C.E.O. one Donald John Trump would list all the failings of one of them.  And, it was sort of like Catholicism, where that week’s loser would get banged for not only the things they did but the things they didn’t do.  It would end on a familiar refrain delivered by one Donald John Trump.

“You’re fired!”

So while the Talking Heads of the Mass Hysteria seem bewildered by this everyone else knows the drill.

Mike Flynn.  “You’re fired!”

Sally Yates.  “You’re fired!”

And now the man who in his own mind, never did one thing wrong, like ever, J. Edgar Comey got his turn.

J. Edgar Comey.  “You’re fired!”

While this may be news to some, “You’re fired!” is why most people voted for one Donald John Trump, now President The Donald Himself.

So don’t get too upset Talking Heads or anyone else who didn’t watch The Apprentice, just tune in next week, as eventually someone gets to be The Apprentice.  We think this time around it will be Omarosa.

And Matt Harvey pitcher for the New York Mets was suspended for failing to show up at the ballpark.  Known as the Dark Knight, Harvey has appeared at times to be your typical egotistical, self-centered athlete, who parties too much, dates beautiful models and has an enormous sense of entitlement.  So everyone pretty much figured that he got what was coming to him when he was fined and suspended, losing about $82,000 in the process.  But in just the last few days we’ve learned that his girlfriend the beautiful Super Model Adrianna Lima dumped him.  He in turn did what guys have been doing since time immemorial, he got wasted.  And, that’s why he didn’t make it to the ballpark the next day.  We think his teammates will understand now and so will the rest of us.  So as bad as the hysterical Talking Heads think the firing of J. Edgar Comey was, when Adrianna Lima told Matt Harvey.

“You’re fired!”

It was worse.  In fact, it was double OMG!!

    Don, I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but YOU’RE FIRED for betting Comey’s first name wrong — it’s James, not John. Please understand that I’d much rather fire The Donald for NEVER being wrong, but since he’s above it all and can’t be fired, someone’s gotta take the fall (Humphrey Bogart said so in CASABLANCA), and you’re the one going down.

    On second thought, Don, anyone who loves old movies and baseball can’t be all bad, so you’re re-HIRED.

    Now it’s your turn to fire me, Don — I made a typo in the first sentence of my previous reply (should have said “getting” instead of “betting”).

  • mistermuse

    I just realized another error — Humphrey Bogart said “somebody’s gotta take the fall” in MALTESE FALCON, not CASABLANCA — so you can fire me again, Don. Damn, why can’t I be like The Donald and never be wrong!

    I’m pretty sure Sam Spade also said. “It’s a shame they’ll have to stretch you’re pretty neck.” But no you’re not fired Muse. Only the big shots can be fired as they work at the behest of the executive but not us lowly little Civil Servants. So long as we show up on time and do the job mistakes are well just mistakes. Yes his name is James Comey but this reminds me of the time I used Downton Abby in an article and called it Downtown Abby. Hey I’m a New York City guy things are uptown and downtown. There’s no downton. But it will be Downtown from now on as I like that better.

    Now I may never write about James aka John Comey again but if I do I’m pretty sure I’m going to refer to him as J. Edgar Comey.

    Muse, thank you. I liked that idea of J. Edgar Comey so much I just changed it.

  • Don and Muse,

    Well, quite an interesting exchange. Now, I’m not sure who has ended up fired or hired, but I gather we little people are on fairly safe ground. And Matt Harvey got dumped?!? Damn, I’ve got to read you more often, Don!

    Have a pleasant Memorial Day weekend, you two.
