Heroes (No, not the tv show)

Fit looking South African thespian tottie Charlize Theron is to become a United Nations "messenger for peace".

Great.

I can't think of anything more worthy than yet another celebrity, most famous for being pretty, travelling the planet telling people "hey, can't we all just get along?"

According to Yahoo news "In her new role she will join the nine other UN messengers of peace: Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim, American actors George Clooney and Michael Douglas, Nobel Peace Prize winner for literature Elie Wiesel, Chinese-American cellist Yo-Yo Ma, British primatologist Jane Goodall, Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein of Jordan, Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho and Japanese violinist Midori Goto."

Now I'm sure that like me, you're all accutely aware of the vital work that these personalities have done in . . . erm . . . the important issues that they've . . . er . . . highlighted on . . . eh . . . on the . . .

Well I can't remember all the details, but I'm SURE that they've all been working really, really hard on whatever it is that Ban Ki-Moon says it is that they do.
For example, as soon a someone mentions the name "George Clooney" I immediately think 'humanitarian', and if I see a photo of Michael Douglas I don't think of him banging Glenn Close, oh no, I think of all the charitable pro-am golf tournaments that he and his wife Cathy ZayJay play in solely to raise awareness of . . . . . stuff.

So if I start a war Charlize will come over to my place and spend time trying to talk me out of it eh? Hmm... Interesting...

Although on second thoughts, knowing my luck, I'd end up with Michael Douglas...

Let's give peace a chance.

These Hollywood fruitcakes like Clooney will probably get us to invade Darfur; you watch. They will have a lot of clout because they all endorsed Obama. In fact, I think the only retard who DIDN'T endorse Obama was Trig Palin.

I don't think that $#!thole (Darfur) is worth one Apache helicopter--let alone an American life.

Of course Clooney is an "expert" on Mideast policy since he made a movie called Syriana that bombed.

(I know Darfur is not in the Mideast--or SCUD launching distance from Israel which is why I don't give a #UCK about it; the question is whether CLOONEY knows it.)

I hope his foreign policy is more comprehensible than the plot for that movie.

Off topic: Jessica Biel will play a stripper in her next movie.

"'Rub, rub' beats 'war, war,'" as Winston Churchill would say.

(Or would that be, "'Beat beat' beats 'war war'"?

The season finale of the NHRA's Powerade High pressure blower Series began with Pedregon holding a 12-point Industrial fan edge over Wilkerson and a 39-point Industrial blower lead over Hight.A near capacity crowd -- perhaps Commercial blower sensing that the title could be decided early -- had maneuvered ugg boots around shuttered freeways and other roads closed by the Wholesale Jewelry Southern California brush fires pressure blower and arrived on time for the pressure blowers opening round.It began with Pedregon advancing fans to the semifinals by knocking out Jerry Toliver.Then Wilkerson lost blowers to 14-time champion John Force.

Wow, Luos. I almost deleted your comment until I realised what a clever piece of marketing it is.
I'm now almost tempted to by a pressure blower and a pair of Ugg boots!

MOAR excuses to publish pretty girl pics...

Inchy said...

Is she really, I hadn't noticed.

Eostre said...

That is one fine looking humanitarian/saint right there. Yis.

For her sake I would definitely give peace a chance. And by peace I mean nookie. And by nookie I mean furthering my acquaintance with Ms. Theron. On a cerebral level. Of course.

How Elie Weisel (whose true life tale in Night is perhaps one of the most depressing tales ever - goes to concentration camp with dad as a teenager; spends time trying to keep dad alive, which in turn keeps both going; dad dies and Elie loses meaning from his life until he spends the time out of WW2 ensuring genocide never happens again) got on that list with those other knuckleheads, I won't know, but you just get the feeling there wouldn't be much conversation sitting around the pub - unless Clooney and Douglas talked about how great they were.

(in the words of Seinfeld's Kramer)Yo Yo Ma.

Ok, I give up. Where the blazes are you, Inchy?

The Manic Street Preacher said...

I'd like piece of her arse. Wrong peace but it'd do.

Inchy said...

Hi Misssy, I've been taking a bit of a blog holiday lately. I've been a bit busy, but I'm sure normal service will be resumed soon.
