There comes a time when I feel like some people need to just go away. They have done enough damage in public whether by crimes, their general horrible behavior or whatever. Hence, I have come up with the top 10 people (or whatever) who in my opinion need to just go away and go back into hiding.
Working from the bottom up:
10: Sixers center Andrew Bynum. Bynum was brought here at the potential savior of an NBA franchise desperate to become relevant again. His signing and introduction day was held at the Constitution Center in Philly and the hoopla began. And ended. He has not set foot on the floor for one game and is making $16 million to do essentially nothing but make a bad team even worse. We are the laughing stock team of the NBA.
9: Singer Taylor Swift. Yes she’s quite pretty and I suppose she has a pleasant voice. But do we have to be tortured with more and more songs about her pathetic love life? She’s even a local product coming out of the Reading, Pa., area as a baby I guess but seriously, I don’t care that “we’re never, ever, ever getting back together…” Goodbye, please.
8: Kim Kardashian. No category because frankly I don’t know what she does other than marry famous people, divorce famous people, make disgusting sex tapes and have a reality show which I could die tomorrow and never feel bad about not watching. And she shares the same ethnic background as me. That shows you really how much I want her to go away.
7: The Iranian government. Please. Do we really need to say much more? The country’s leaders are so pathetic that they are planning to sue over the movie, “Argo”? Hey, maybe next time try NOT to take people hostage and hold them for months and months.
6: The North Korean government. Even worse and not even deserving of much more detail. When they make fun of you on “Saturday Night Live” it tells you all you need to know.
5: The Philly mob. Geez guys, you are just a shell of what used to be an organization that at least had folklore and legend behind it. Now you’re just a bunch of dummies. According to a story on Philly.com, a recent “hit” — if you want to call it that – had the hit man driving a giant SUV seen fleeing … a block away where he parked it in front of his own house with the gun still inside the vehicle. Obviously the Mafia minor leagues are as weak as that of the Phillies.
4: Gov. Tom Corbett. Each day some newspaper somewhere in Pennsylvania digs up some more nasty stuff surrounding the guv. Gifts to him and his wife, etc. I don’t think it’s going out on a limb to say that Corbett is a one-hit wonder.
3: Canadian singer Justin Bieber. Like Swift, the world has had just about enough of the Bieber-isms including his silly looking hair.
2: Absolutely anyone on American Idol, Dancing With The Stars, America’s Got Talent, Jersey Shore. And we’re not talking about the little people taking their shot at fame and fortune but the has-beens still looking to live the glory years. Nicole Polizzi AKA Snooki probably tops the list. Anyone who gets paid for acting like the embarrassing friend we’ve all had deserves none of our attention. And some of the judges and guests need to take a long look in the mirror.
1: And the absolute top dog for person who must, must, must go back into the woods is former NBA player Dennis Rodman. First he trotted off to North Korea to spend quality time with leader Kim Jong Un. They evidently talked hoops and other guy stuff. Rodman thinks Un is awesome. Sorry to tell you Dennis but the rest of the world thinks he’s a dangerous, psychotic leader who wants to cause chaos to everyone around him – especially South Korea and the U.S. Then this morning we find dear Dennis in Vatican City where he figures he’ll get the first shot at talking to the new pope. Is he delusional? Dennis, go back to where you came from. Your days of stardom are long gone and you are an embarrassment to our country.
