fuck you Ronnie

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Every parent of young children has the opportunity to feel competitive as one’s kids are making friends and defining themselves socially. Parents active in their kids lives can remember the kids who crave attention. These kids have overly encouraging home audiences. The kids that match this profile are not totally awesome and they begin to learn a lesson that public audiences don’t love them as much as the private audiences of their childhood home. Ronnie Howard was one of those kids and he sings the Wells Fargo song in a Fifties-style commercial when Ronnie was pre-puberty about eight. He’s the kind of kid every parent whose kid is not as comfortable with attention has reason to hate. As Ronnie Howard reaches his theatrical climax in the Wells Fargo song John Oliver cuts in with, “fuck you”. John Oliver is a comedian with timing good enough for him to make a career of humor, and his timing on this cut to, “fuck you” is perfect. Though I would deny it I would be anxious a lie-detector test would prove I was thinking, “fuck you” just as the screen cuts to John Oliver. John Oliver uses foul language too much, and if TV delivered him into my living space he would get little of my attention, but when the panel over Oliver’s shoulder says, “Wells Fargo”, and I am feeling contempt toward Wells Fargo John Oliver’s foul language is perfect. Additionally he cracks at boy-age Ron Howard, and considering my fondness of Howard as, “Richie” and as a New Yorker, and as a director . . . . a, “fuck you” to little Ronnie sits well with me. »» about me 302-990-2346 nearlincoln@hotmail.com contact us
