Billy Bob Thornton Gets the Gravy
When I heard that Billy Bob Thornton had compared Canadians to mashed potatoes without the gravy I was naturally outraged.
How dare that grit lovin bubbah accuse us of being soft and mushy? When EVERYONE knows we're tough and tasty..... like french fries.
And we LOVE gravy.
Billy Bob Thornton elicited boos and catcalls last night at Massey Hall as he attempted to explain his bizarre behaviour during an interview on CBC Radio on Wednesday.
The explanation was met by further boos and catcalls of, "Here comes the gravy," a reference to Thornton's description of Canadian audiences as "mashed potatoes with no gravy" during his interview with Ghomeshi.
Heh heh heh. Excellent. Here comes da gravy !!!!
And there goes Billy Bob.
Like a possum with his tail between his legs. Or the redneck from Deliverance. SQUEAL.
I guess since he stopped wearing a vial of Angelina Jolie's blood around his neck he isn't the man he used to be.
Just like he will NEVER be a musician. Because I watched some of Boxmaster's videos last night. And anyone who paid to see that shite should have their ears....and their heads...examined.
But seriously.... a lot of Americans like to make fun of the fact that we are quieter and more polite than they are. Even though they fail to understand how EASY that is.
And some bubbahs like Billy Bob interpret that as a sign of weakness....instead of a sign of strength AND class.
So I'm REALLY glad to see that we showed him that you can only push the quiet people around so much before we let him have it.
And I'd like to dedicate this farewell song to Billy Bob from a now UNITED nation. To remind him that although we are usually quite polite.
When assholes come visiting eh?
Sometimes we isn't....
