I'm Guessing This IS his fault...

I suppose it was inevitable. Though I'm always usually bummed out by stories of divorce, celebrity or otherwise, I find myself underwhelmed by this announcement. It's like having Yahoo news telling me: OMG! It's morning and the sun is rising! In the east!
I figured his wife must have felt that his continued assholery was simply beyond thunderdome. She knew she wouldn't be forever young and was tired of spending the year living dangerously. I imagine that she was having a heart-to-heart with Mrs. Soffel by the river about how old Mel was a maverick with a leathal weapon. She probably wanted to stick it out rather than go on a chicken run, but she needed payback for all the conspiracy theories. She was tired of feeling like a bird on a wire. So now she'll take her ransom and Gallipoli off into the sunset.
Best of luck, former Mrs. G. Enjoy your FRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOMMMMM!
This post is dedicated to Cormac Brown for all he started with Bad Lieutenant's Wife. Happy early birthday, CB!


  1. I am so looking forward to meeting the gal who wrote this post that made me laugh so much.

  2. This was nothing short of brilliant Flan!

  3. Dr. MVM: I hope I don't disappoint!

    SD: Thank you! Mel Gibson is my muse...

  4. I hope he tries to get an annulment from his precious Catholic Church and that it is squarely DENIED! So it'll be good ole' Mel and his left hand the rest of his natural life, since we know how on accounta he's such a good Kristian & all that he would NEVER consider having extra-marital sex!

    Assholery is right!

  5. Very nicely constructed.

    Mrs. G has more than her freedom... she has her half of MEGA millions. I say take it and run.

  6. Thank you for putting Mr. Sugart*ts in proper perspective and out Lieutenanting the Bad Lieutenant for my birthday!

  7. Ha! Her good. How you were able to create a little story with the names of his movies.., tell me, was it difficult? Tho I have to say my fave word was 'assholery.' ha!

  8. I love, love, LOVE that they don't have a prenup! You go, Robin!

  9. CP: I don't think he's going to bother with the Catholic church. He is only Catholic when it suits him...kind of like Henry the VIIIth.

    Cap'n: Thanks!

    Amen, Pyzahn!

    You're very welcome, CB!

    Rebecca: I let the titles guide me. It started with " was beyond thunderdome" which is now part of my every day conversations.

    Thanks, Paul!

    Beth: Exactly!
