David Letterman on his show’s end

From a New York Times interview: “I’ll miss it, desperately. One of two things: There will be reasonable, adult acceptance of transition. Or I will turn to a life of crime.”

I haven’t watched Letterman in years. I tired of the shtick. But I like his either/or.

Given a choice, providing there would be no consequences to anyone from your behavior, which life of crime would you choose?

You promise I won’t get in trouble? Then I’d start by defrauding the Koch brothers. Given their wealth, that’d keep me busy for a while. Then I’d turn to various political-action committees. But I’d want there to be consequences, for them. :)

I hereby dub thee Sir Oscar, the Erudite Avenger.

Wait 'til you see the costume I've designed for you - neon blue and lime green striped tights, for starters.

Their punishment/consequences will be their loss of wealth, influence and power that you inflict upon them. Oooh, oooh, oooh! One of your weapons has to be a machine that sprays them with poison-ivy tar followed by a dunking into turkey feathers.

I am so ready to be your evil-minded sidekick. I think I have found my calling!

Well, you can’t say we didn’t warn them. No joke: whenever I’ve mentioned Koch products (Boycott Koch), a visitor from Koch Industries shows up in my stats. But I’m sure they’ll appreciate what you and I have written here as good-hearted fun.

The Crow said...

I was not being good-hearted.

Uh oh, now you’re on the record. :)
