Imagine if at all times there was a PR person examining your words and screening them before you actually said something? You'd likely get into less arguments with your significant other, although you might have built up rage. You would never tell your boss to go shove it, so you might still be employed right now. And you would have never told your 3rd grade teacher that she was an asshole, ok maybe you would have, she was an asshole. At the end of the day, if everyone spoke through a filter this world would be incredibly boring.
This week alone there have been people, whom before this week you would have no idea whom they were, but now since they opened their moronic mouth's they are news. The funniest part is these two instances were done on Twitter, the enemy of all PR firms with idiot clients.
Case #1: Larry Fitzgerald's Idiot Brother
Apparently you don't even need to say anything yourself to make the public think that you just might be a selfish prick. Case and point, Larry Fitgerald and his idiot brother whom decided to tweet that his brother was getting pissed off that he wasn't getting the ball.
Tweet 1: "Kurt warner needs 2 stop bein a scary ass & throw the ball deep 2 my brother!damn this is annoying 2 watch!he throws 2 the rb's 2 damn much!"
Tweet 2:"kurt warner plays like a damn 80 year old! my brother just texted me during halftime pissed off"
Tweet 3:"Ok another drive & kurt doesnt throw 2 larry.YOU OLD ASS MAN,THROW HIM THE DAMN BALL"
Tweet 4:"Bout time kurt!I almost had to come to jacksonville & strangle his ass lmao"
Tweet 5:"Just got off the phone with my brother.he's happy about the win. But PISSED he didnt get the ball thrown 2 him much!"
This coming on a day where Kurt Warner completed 24 of 26 passes as the Cardinals cruised to an easy victory. Yep, Kurt Warner did a horrible job, he was just dreadful on those two incompletions.
Case #2: Robert Henson Inactive Redskin Linebacker
Moronic Comment #1: "All you fake half hearted Skins fan can .. I won't go there but I dislike you very strongly, don't come to Fed Ex to boo dim wits!!"
The fans of course got on him because well, they don't like being called dim wits by a player who doesn't play. So he fired back: "No I didn't play but I still made more than you in a year and you'd [gladly] switch spots with me in a second ... The question is who are you to say you know what's best for the team and you work 9 to 5 at Mcdonalds [sic]."
This was so stupid it even inspired rage from of all people the manicured Mike Greenberg who summed up the whole thing well.
Times like these just make me happy that there are both idiots in this world and that people can speak without a filter because life would just be so boring if catastrophically dumb statements like those above weren't made on a week to week basis.
