Take a Lesson John-Boy by Miz Pink

Okay dokay here we go.

No doubt all of you in blogland have heard about that John Mayer interview with Playboy Magazine and even if you don’t know who the hell he is and I sure didn’t except vaguely that he sang some crap, you no doubt know about things like talking about his “hood pass” and using the N-word and talking about how his penis is like a white supremacist because he only boinks white chicks.

Nothing new here. Just want to preface that Johnny is young, virile, healthy and can speak but has diarrhea of the mouth and no home training and should shut the heck up.

Oh, article here by the by: www.playboy.com/articles/john-mayer-playboy-interview/index.html?page=1

On the other hand I just learned that Roger Ebert the movie critic hasn’t been able to speak for the past four years and the Esquire Magazine article about him is just heartbreaking (in good and bad ways). Deke shared with me some of the Twitter posts that Roger has done and all I can say is, this is a man who cannot speak but has loads to say and does it well.

John Mayer should take lesssons from him.

    better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak and prove it.

    Man, ain’t that true. One of my favorite bits of wisdom from Solomon (presumably) in the Book of Proverbs is: Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

    As for Roger Ebert, I think he’s homegrown here in the States…LOL. But I do have to admit that Canada does produce some of North America’s best comedians. 😉

    read an earlier story about ebert. not being able to speak is horrible, not being able to eat or drink seems much worse to me.
