Why not head this off with a comparison between Claus von Stauffenberg’s Wehrmacht personnel photo and Tom Cruise’s Scientology ID badge picture? (note: this graf and photo use protected by existing statutory and case law regarding satire, parody and general treatment of public figures)
Thanks to Raincoaster’s recent missive on constipation and Herr Cruise, I am reminded of the time that I and my significant other attended Earth Day festivities in front of the Capitol in, I believe, 1989.
We were sitting on the grass about 40 or 50 feet abreast of the podium, enjoying the sunshine and general spring miasma of a May day in the District of Columbia when somebody began haranguing the crowd.
I looked up and asked significant other; “Who’s the short guy?”
“That’s Tom Cruise,” significant other replied.
“Iceman shoulda had an accidental missile release,” I observed.
