Canadian actor says The Revenant ‘stupid’ for portraying French-Canadians as murderous rapists
For portraying French-speaking voyageurs as duplicitous, murdering rapists, a prominent Canadian actor is accusing the hit film The Revenant of being anti-French-Canadian.
“It’s the French Canadians who rape, who lynch, who keep sex slaves,” actor Roy Dupuis was quoted as saying in the Quebec version of Huffington Post.
“They have the worst roles!”
Born in Ontario to Francophone parents, Dupuis is famous for portrayed hockey player Maurice Richard in a 2013 biopic, and for his roles as Canadian general Roméo Dallaire in the Rwandan Genocide drama Shake Hands with the Devil.
Dupuis said he was originally offered the role of Toussaint, the leader of a French-Canadian fur trading expedition, but turned it down after reading the script and seeing the Canadiens depicted as “horrible barbarians.”
A spokesman for 20th Century Fox admitted the error and said “Yes, it was a horrible mistake, we never intended to portray French-Canadians as murderous rapists; in fact we meant to portray them as raping murderers.”
Be careful out there. Enjoy a cozy weekend home and know that your public officials have every possible scenario well in hand.
Half the fun is sitting back and watching the Weather Channel folks make up asinine storm names and implode over an unexpected dose of “winter” during…winter.
…we’ve got Sean Penn hacking his way through primordial jungle to deliver our heartfelt
…wishes to the infamous El Guapo Bingley.
We promised him he didn’t have to pretend to be a journalist, just deliver the celebratory hootch and requested travel documents safely.
I’ve waited long enough.
God bless you and keep you, EVERY one.
or maybe cry; you see, we just sent off the last tuition check for Daughter’s college.
So I pulled out an old Australian Shiraz to celebrate
A damn fine time was had by all.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all our Swillers and them and theirs!!!
And it’s Bingley’s fault.
…UNITED STATES MARINES CORPS!
We go back a ways with our family involvement, from Grampa who fought through Central America in the Banana Wars…
…to both of HIS sons (and a son-in-law). THIS handsome young uncle here…
…hung around the Corps long enough for a certain young boot camp graduate to be able to attend his retirement…
…and heartily concur with her choice in men. 😉
And that’s the just scratching the surface of Leathernecks in the family.
OO-RAH and Semper FI!

This is bad
WASHINGTON—Confirming years of speculation, a new study from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Animal Health Monitoring System has found that red meat significantly increases the risk of premature death in cows. “Our research suggests that by having red meat, a cow’s life can be shortened by as many as 10 years, sometimes more,” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in an interview with CNN Tuesday. “Unfortunately, in some cases, even just a single daily serving of red meat can hurt a cow’s chances of surviving past the earliest stage of life.”

Bury proceeds from Armored Truck Heist in someone else’s yard
Los Angeles (CNN)Cesar Yanez was convicted this summer of an armored-truck heist where he and his accomplices made off with a cool million.
On Thursday, cops recovered more than half of that. It was buried in the backyard of his Southern California home in Fontana, about 50 miles east of Los Angeles.
First time I’ve seen that movie in many, many years.
My god, it’s simply terrible.
Why was this such a Big Thing in the 80s?
I mean, it’s really really bad.
The city was so deserted it only took my bus 18 minutes to go from Battery Park through the Holland Tunnel into Jersey City.
It normally takes 45.
