U is for UTTERLY RIDICULOUS


For the letter U, let’s focus on....

UTTERLY RIDICULOUS

Now, really, how much of a stretch is it to come up with something that is utterly ridiculous here on this blog? It’s not. And to prove it, I’ll offer you up this conspiracy theory. It’s called…Give it Up, John…

This just in…

John Belushi apparently has more to say to us and he’s been trying to make his way back to Earth through various comedians. Unfortunately, John’s methods to return cause his chosen comedian to expand until they die or explode.

Take John Candy…

You can see Belushi blimping up poor John as he tries to get back to this world. It didn’t work…Candy died.

Then there was Chris Farley…

Again, John thought since Chris was already big he could just come right back. But Chris kept getting bigger and bigger until…yep…dropped dead.

John has been careful and tried to spread out his attempts across several people lately…

John Goodman…

Harold Ramis…
Alec Baldwin…

and even his partner Dan Akroyd!

Come on John…give it up. We want our skinny comedians back…

The End.

…See…utterly ridiculous…

Finally I am back, FOA

Mrsupole said...

I think I might print out these pictures and post them on the refrigerator and then starve myself to death, or at least starve myself back to skinny.

Yup, I am turning the printer on right now, well after I go barf from looking at what happened to Alec....yuck...more barf.....

God bless.

subby said...

YIKES! Wot happened to Ramis and Ackroyd? I agree with you VE...OY!

Secretia said...

I understand this post, and I don't think it's ridiculous. Secretia

Jenn Thorson said...

There may be something to this. Also, how about Jack Black? We need to keep an eye on him as well.

And Artie Lang. Though I suppose the police are also keeping an eye on Artie Lang, so that's extra help.

Honestly, every time Chris Farley didn't drop dead in his "Van Down By the River" skits I felt a sense of relief.

I just, at the time, didn't know who to blame. Now I know it was Belushi.

lifeshighway said...

I know you were being utterly ridiculous but I had forgotten how hot Alec Balwin was at one time. So I must leave you now, and print off that picture so I can um, be entertained.

The Incredible Woody said...

I want skinny back too.

Kurt said...

Harold Ramis isn't so fat.

JenJen said...

Poor Belushi...can't catch a break, but his brother seems to be doing ok?

JGH said...

Saw a picture of Belushi from "Animal House" recently. He really didn't look that fat!! Yet I always thought of him as so. Maybe my definition of fat has changed.

M.Bug said...

I agree with Jenn Thorson "Honestly, every time Chris Farley didn't drop dead in his "Van Down By the River" skits..." He was great in those though.

The thing I don't understand about ME is I never thought Alec Baldwin was "hot" when he was young (and so was I), but for some strange reason now I sorta do...I am not sure what to think of me!

freetheunicorns said...

This theory has some merit. Cuz those mofos got fat. Especially Goodman and Akroyd. And the fatter they get, they funner they get. Except for Goodman who is kind of starting to scare me he's so fat.

Maureen said...

I loves me my Canuck comdians; can't wait for the next Ghostbusters! Hey! Now THERE's a storyline for it -- they should hunt down the ghost of John Belushi!

Quirkyloon said...

Mooo.

Ooops, sorry, I thought you wrote "udderly" not utterly.

My bad.

Mooo.

Roy Scribner said...

Holy crap, Dan Akroyd better schedule an exorcism - STAT!

Dee said...

hmmm interesting observation, so many people ballooned up didn't they?

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

The two Canadians in that group weren't fat until they went down to the States. You might have something there!

Mama Zen said...

Sick. Funny, but sick!

Kanrei said...

This one was funny. I want my profane comedians back too. Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams....they need to rediscover the joy of saying "F*ck" again.

Alan Smithee said...

Alan Smithee could stand to lose a few pounds himself.

ReformingGeek said...

I was also expecting utters.

Sigh.

Belushi fattening up other comedians is certainly a plausible theory. Those guys need to be on The Biggest Loser or something.

Maybe they could run a marathon with Oprah.

Megan said...

I wish I could just get fat and not care.

VE said...

Mrsupole – Has John Belushi been bothering you too? Shame on him!

Subby – Too much good life I guess…

Secretia – Thanks. I knew you’d understand…

Jenn – Those are good additions….so many fat comedians…so little time…

Lifeshighway – It’s hard to believe the guy in “The Hunt for Red October” and his TV series are the same guy…

Kurt – Not too bad when compared with the rest. I was shocked to see him heavy in “As Good as it Gets” though. He played the doctor…

Jenjen – His brother made it because he died though. I haven’t seen him in much lately. Maybe he’s in TV like every other movie star that can’t get a good film…

Jgh – The country has gained a lot since Belushi’s time…

m.bug – I think you’re becoming a cougar! Ha!

Freetheunicorns – Is Goodman even acting lately or is he just rolling around?

Maureen – You’ve had some good ones come from there and we thank you for that…Oh, and I like your idea! John would have too…

Quirkyloon – Ha! I knew somebody would go there…I suspected you…

Roy – Maybe they could do a reality TV show on it…

Dee – Too much of the good life…

Perpetual chocoholic – It’s called “fast food”…

Mama zen – Sick is my middle name…

Kanrei – There are two interesting things that have changed. One is the profanity comedian that you mentioned. Good call. The other is that sex in the movies isn’t really shown like it was before but sex is talked about much more explicitly in the dialogue of movies and TV than it was back in the day. Weird…

Alan smithee – Really? I wouldn’t have thought that…

Reforminggeek – I like it…the Biggest Marathon for Losers….

VE said...

megan - Stopping smoking sometimes does that...

Ronda Laveen said...

Belushi was always bigger than life.

Baino said...

Wow Ackroyd's packed on the pounds . .erm that's the pot calling the kettle etc.

Gladys said...

It isn't just the male comedians, it's the female ones too. He has tried get into their bodies too. Well he did that BEFORE he died. :)

Uncivil said...

Uterusly Re-dick-you-loss?

Tom said...

it is so obvious now! We don;t need to diet, we need to be exorcized!

Elizabeth said...

Maybe he's tried to come back through Roseann too?

Collette said...

Hmm...I had never thought of this. Your theory seems correct. Now if he would try to possess some of those disgustingly thin models, we might have some good out of it!

Quirky-I was udderly surprised when you moo'ed! I love cows & mooing! MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! LOL

Sorry VE, couldn't help myself. It was udderly impossible :)

Janna said...

I actually had to Google to find out who Harold Ramis was.
I've never seen Ghostbusters.
(*gasp*)!

Annie Ha said...

I seem to recall having a hard time believing Harold Ramis was really Harold Ramis.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

This explains a lot. So how many attempts as he made on Kirstie Alley and Oprah by now?

Chris C said...

This is a very weird post. I like weird.

Mrsupole said...

I couldn't stop myself, I am totally a follower and am still following Chris. Oh my.

God bless.

monica said...

U for UGH, that's reality in their faces! So glad I am not a VIP and people would dig up then and now pics of me.... What about you VE? Still look like 23 ?

VE said...

ronda - Apparently so!

baino - Has Belushi been bothering you too? Say it isn't so...

gladys - Ha! Good one. Guys tend to do that, don't they?

uncivil - Ha! No...haven't lost it yet (thank God!)

tom - You've got it! The latest celebrity diet!

elizabeth - Ha! Good point. He probably left because she's so bitchy...

collette - Oh no, don't get mrsupole started with this comment fad! Firsts, lasts and now mooing...

janna - What? What? No Ghostbusters? No Stripes? Where have you been all your life? Bad mouthing your country and...oh wait, that's a line from An Officer and a Gentleman... still... there's no excuse!

annie ha - I had the same feeling when I saw him in As Good as it Gets...

dennis - Good point. I think he's gotten closest to coming back through Kirstie...

chris c - Sometimes I see weird things...

mrsupole - Careful...he's gonna put a restraining order on ya...

monica - I don't know...you tell me. I have pics that are

CatLadyLarew said...

I'm beefing up so I can become a famous comedian. Now to stop eating just before I explode.

VE said...

catladylarew - Good plan...

Mandy's Life After 30 said...

Well I'm just glad that Chunk got the last laugh and will live longer than these folks. Wait, can you still be skinny and do the truffle shuffle?! And wouldn't it be creepy if Sloth was still his sidekick.

Long live the chubby, the fatties and the large. As long as they make me laugh, I don't give a rat's fat ass.

VE said...

mandy - As long as their alive and make me laugh, I guess I don't care either. I just keep noticing them dying off quicky (John Candy, Chris Farley)...We never got to watch Uncle Buck 2 or Tommy Boy 2 - All Grown Up...

subby said...

Uncle Buck 2...now that could've been a cool sequel, alas!

lime said...

the fatter picture of chris farley is just disturbing in the extreme. he looks like he's ready to pop right there.

gab said...

OM gosh those guys used to be soooooooooooo cute!!!

VE said...

subby - I think so...

lime - He looks awfully red. He should try breathing...

gab - What happened?

Jaime said...

i haven't seen john goodman since his roseann days...but is he REALLY that huge now?

VE said...

jaime - He is...sadly...

The Silver Fox said...

Good ol' J.B. Even dead, he's still a hell-raiser!

VE said...

silver fox - And funny...
