Last night’s 11PM news was a depressing broadcast, full of stories of men behaving badly…I mean really badly.
Imagine for a moment if we brought together all the men who appeared in these stories last night. We could put the 7 of them in a circle and go around and ask each one why he was on the news.
Picture someone along the lines of Oprah, coordinating a roundtable discussion with these guys.
Oprah- Let’s being with you:
“I confessed to viciously murdering my pregnant girlfriend and then when her grandmother tried to stop me, I stabbed her to death, too. Did I mention I was on crack and percocet.”
“I kidnapped a woman from a convenience store and then beat her up and raped her.”
What about you?
“I’m under arrest for the murder of a woman 13 years ago. Police say I strangled her and left her on a street. ”
What’s your story?
“I’m accused of trying to trade my baby daughter for cocaine.”
How about you, sir?
“I’m charged with shooting and killing 13 people.”
Let’s move along, you’re next.
“I am accused of pushing my wife in front of our children and being abusive. I was told not to call her, but police say I did so they arrested me again, and then a third time before the weekend was out.”
Whew…you’re our final one. Sir, go ahead.
“I threatened to kill my wife, the mother of my children…and put a knife to her. Years ago, I accidentally shot an ex-fiancee. I just hope none of this affects the millions of dollars I hope to make in syndication from “Two and a Half Men.”
