What were they thinking?

Every single time that someone commits an act of public stupidity, people everywhere beg the question; what were they thinking? Nobody however, offers us a truly honest explanation. Being the humble servant to public service that I am, I thought I’d shed some much needed light on a few of history’s greatest mysteries. This is what they were thinking…….


Kayne West, “Oh my God, please look at me. Look at me. Look at me. Please just look at meeeeee.”


Rob Blagojevich, “Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be a gangster.”


Larry Craig, “What happens in the Minnesota airports men’s restroom stays in the Minnesota airport men’s restroom.”


Jim Jones, “What. The. Fuck. They told me this was gonna be Gatorade.”


King Henry The VIII, “I wonder where Ann is headed off to?”


Princess Di’s driver, “I knew I shouldn’t have done that last line of coke. Now I’m all edgy and shit.”


Mao Ze-Dong, “Well, there’s half my problem solved right there.”


Tonya Harding, “I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum. Which is what I am, I’m a bum.”


Pete Rose, “Hey batter, batter, swing batter, batter. Cause daddy needs a new pair of shoes.”


Mark Foley, “It’s just the internet, who’s gonna ever find out?”


Bernie Madoff, “I can’t believe I’m getting away with this shit.”


Eddie Murphy, “It’s not gay if she looks like a she.”


Richard Pryor, “Just one more blaze.”


Michael Hutchence and David Carradine, “This is gonna be so great.”


Lisa Nowak (internal dialog, all to herself), “Just be cool bitch. But I gotta pee. Look, tell that bitch to be cool. Bitch be cool and all this shit is gonna work out.”


Hitler, “If only the Goldberg gallery had bought even one painting. Aaughh.”


Schrödinger’s cat, “I’m soooo fucking confused.”


Mussolini, “This is my neighborhood; you should let me wet my beak a little.”


Kim Jong-Il- “I can’t believe they keep making me get that damn glaucoma test.”


Ahmadinejad- “No sane man would fuck with a man wearing such a nice Banana Republic jacket.”


Marsha Applewhite, (Heavens Gate) “This is gonna be so fuckin cool.”


Len Bias- “My future is paved in gold now baby.”


John Belushi and Chris Farley, “Definitely gotta go to rehab tomorrow.” 


Mark Sanford, “If it ain’t the same continent, it ain’t cheatin.”


Bill Clinton, “Hehe, everybody knows fat chicks give the best head. Hehe.”


Nixon, “Fuck em.”


Cheney, “Fuck em.”


Bush, “I wonder if Dick will let me have Saddam’s train set?”


OJ, “Come on man, you should know not to fuck with a brother’s white girl. Shoulda God damn better known better.”


Ted Haggard, “Dear lord Jesus, please avert your eyes for about an hour.”


Pontius Pilate, “I have a bad gut feeling about this. Ahh, I’m sure it’ll work out.”

  4. Scott, if the word “awesome” was in Histories Greatest Mysteries, you’d have been the one who put it there.

    Although I’m not personally familiar with all of these famous people (and by all I mean half), I have no doubt in my mind that this is exactly what they were thinking before they did whatever it is they ended up doing.

    And just to prove it, I’m going to “Wikipedia the Shit out of These People,” until I feel I have a good enough background to back up your story.

    Because that’s what blogging friends do.

    I’m going to start with Schrödinger’s cat, of course (I mean it’s only logical), and from there hit Rob Blagojevich, before making a quick stop at Ahmadinejad on my way home. To be honest, I could really use Ahmadinejad’s help picking out a new Banana Republic jacket and pant ensemble…I mean, yes, their clothes may be a little pricier than what I’m used to (Target), but their pieces are timeless, and we can all agree that they only use the highest-quality, longest-lasting fabrics.

    It’s all they know.

    As for the others, I know enough about them to know that you know what we all now know.

    Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that I “revere” this post, and you’re the reason “My future is paved in gold now baby.” For real.

    • Thanks B that was the most ambiguously complimentary comment that I have ever received!! Allow me to save you the time and energy (and unreliability) of Wiki. At least for the three that you mentioned you were going to look up.

      Schrödinger’s cat was a newspaper comic strip that began in 1978 created by Jim Davis. You see he was this lovable but morbidly obese feline that carried on pretend conversations with his nerdy but affable owner Jon Stewart. What made the strip so long lasting and successful were such hilarious punch lines as, “I hate Mondays” and, “Mmmm lasagna.” Please excuse me as I’m still howling with unadulterated laughter. Ooh that gets me every time!

      Rob Blagojevich is a former mobster with the Lucchese crime family. He helped co-write the book on his life which was subsequently turned into a movie titled Goodfellas. What makes him so funny is that he was a piece of shit that ratted out all of his friends! It’s hilarious because he’s still a piece of shit. He just got caught running an ecstasy ring a few years ago. I just keep waiting for him to get wacked out but it just never happens. It’s like the exact opposite of a Wile E Coyote situation. Hahahaha.

      Ahmadinejad was a gay fashion designer who was tragically gunned down outside of his Miami mansion by rogue members of the Manson family after a 3 decade long acid trip. The poor guy was wearing a Banana Republic jacket the day he died and was subsequently buried in it. His sister now runs the clothing line.

      Well, I hope that I was at least as accurate and factual as Wikipedia would have been. In fact, I’m thinking of beginning my own online encyclopedia titled full-o-shitia. No, no, I’m just kidding, I freaking love Wiki. I’d be lost without it!
      Thanks B!!!!!!

  5. First of all, that was the best reply to a comment ever!

    Second of all, I now feel a little foolish, seeing as I spent my entire Grade 7 year in a Schrodingers cat Limited-Edition Sweatshirt that revealed my Astrology sign (Aries, if you must know).

    Reverse Wile E. Coyote reference = brilliant

    So I guess this means I won’t be able to get Ahmadinejad’s fashion advice…

    And you’re right. Wiki does talk out of it’s ass a lot of the time (as do the people who post information on it), but it’s just that it’s so….well, convenient. But from now on, I’m getting my info from the Online Encyclopedia of Scott…(and I’ll only go to Wiki as a last resort)

    Comment by bschooled | September 18, 2009 | Reply

    • Thanks B! More complimentary than ever!!

      That’s cool that you had a Schrödinger’s cat sweatshirt; I had a lunchbox at some point. The problem arose when (about half the time, and depending on my expectation) my lunch would completely disappear. There’s nothing like a missing PB&J to mess up your 3rd grade day.

      Poor old Wile E. I always wanted him to be ok, to make it. With Henry Hill Blagojevich, not so much.

      Wiki is actually getting a lot better. I guess there was a lawsuit (other than just the scientologists) where they published ‘How to build your own dirty bomb’ but it turned out that when you assembled the thing, it was your average groin mauler. I thank you for placing all of your on-line educational needs in my trusty hands.

      You’re the best B!!

  6. So funny! I was thinkin about the Ahmadinejad comment…looks like a “memebers only” jacket to me. Might be the only one left in circulation!

    Thanks for the Friday laugh!

    Hugs kiddo!

    • It was the guy in the Members Only jacket that may or may not have killed Tony Soprano. I guess it depends on whether Schrödinger’s cat was in the bathroom at the time. Ahmadinejad has much better taste!
      Thanks Vicki!

  8. Nice work, Scott.

    Schrodinger’s cat. Awesome stuff. You just don’t see enough theoretical discussions being tossed about casually like punchlines these days.

    That poor cat. Constantly in two stares, unlike the Johnsons (from Wesport, CT? Gene says you went to school together?) whose ill-fated vacation led them to Four Corners, USA. Once there, they straddled (lovely word, isn’t it) the four states, only to discover that some merry pranksters (MIT students, not affiliated with Ken Kesey or his surviving Pranksters) had place an incredibly fast and powerful adhesive all over the historical marker.

    To this day, they are trapped in four states, fed only occasionally by other tourists and state park employees.

    • I toyed with the idea of throwing in some of Hawking’s headier stuff but I ended up just confusing myself.

      I wonder what Neil Bohr would have to say about the Johnson’s? Sure I know Gene and the gang. It’s a shame because they went on and on about that planned vacation like it was a trip to the moon. Speaking of which, I had heard that Kesey did later show up and offer the family all sorts of hallucinogenics, which were accepted and consumed. For days afterward the family would yell at the top of thier lungs, “Hey, I’m calling from Utah, hehe,” “Yea well I can’t hear you because I’m all the way in New Mexico.” All followed by uproarious laughter. Ah, they always were a fun loving family. If you run into them please do give them my best!

      Thanks CLT, great comment!!

    • Haha, very nice Jay! Another one I hadn’t thought of. Yea that Mel Gibson is masterful in light hearted tales of glee and wonderment. I hear that he’s presently involved in a Disney animated film about the Bubonic plague of the 1300’s. It should be a real hoot!!!

  10. Love it. There’s that brain that you keep trying to ruin. If you aren’t going to take care of it, then send it to me for safekeeping and I will send it back when you learn to take care of it.

    Nice picture. Yes I keep saying it. I still mean it.

    And today, I like ending sentences in ‘it’.

    Damn it.

  17. “The eye”…well, you can always spit on me for good luck. I heard it’s a custom in Greece and Romania.

    Speaking of Romania, how are the gypsies? What’s the latest saga there?

  18. I don’t know about Romania, but I’ve been to Greece and never been spit on, thank God. Gypsies are still the Gypsies, unfortunately. They’ve been a little quieter though, now that one of them accidentally set the church on fire. – Just kidding.

    You know, you can read and comment on my newest posts! You wouldn’t come back from a two month jury sequestering and not read the newest paper would you? You have to stay up to date on current events (and reality shows) you know!
