So at least you have a
picture to look at. There
was at least one thing
interesting on this blog.
Tell your friends
on branding russell brand 

The burning question: Is Russell Brand actually 'funny'. (And of course by 'funny', we are denoting the intentional stimulation (giggity) of a humours response. In other words, is Brand actually comedic, witty, capable of knocking out a a clever quip at nearly any given moment, the sort of gift that makes all women swoon and all men want to bash him with a cricket bat?) Obviously the answer is a resounding yay -- even if we judge this quality sheerly by the number of women he has fucked.

Of course, he has to has something going for him, or no one would pay attention to anything he said. Not that that makes him a good person. (Yes, I checked this fact with my fact-checker, Captain Obvious, and he said that I was completely, utterly correct, so don't even fucking think about contradicting me. Or even leaving a comment on my blog. Or even reading my blog. No one does.) Plenty of evil people can crack a joke. Historians have long known that Hitler started out as a juggler in the bierpalast of Vienna in order to support his art school education; Josef Stalin was a knife-thrower in a circus before becoming a crusader for the revolution; and even Mao did some stand up comedy in his early days. But don't take my word for it (no one does): Simply watch american tv any Sunday morning and watch them insult their audience as "sinners" -- then pirouette on a dime, and out comes the begging bowl. Pretty good racket if you can pull it off. And with the megachurch, the audience comes to you. Really saves a lot of fuss and bother at the airport. The point is, I've always had a perverse fascination with loathsome, manipulative creeps who can treat women like shit and they keep coming back for more. Or maybe it's a perverse envy. Had a 10 cassette lecture series, Unleash Your Inner Creep, but lost it back in '88. Still looking.- dead rodent typing
