I get some very strange comments on this blog.
I’m not talking about my regular readers, because by definition they have to be strange people anyway.
No. I’m talking about the odd comment that comes in from a stranger that has no relevance to the topic at all.
I got one the other day, that started me on a little odyssey of my own…
boycott EWAN MCGREGOR
HE HAS INSULTED STAR WARS FANS.
BOYCOTT HIS MERCHANDISE
This intrigued me. What has Ewan McGregor done to inflame this person, that he [or she] feels compelled to start a campaign on the Internet?
So I did a search for Ewan McGregor. It transpires that he has acted in the Star Wars films. So far so good. He has even recieved a lot of critical acclaim.
I did a search for “ewan mcgregor insult fans star wars” and got a load of extremely strange sites. These were mostly sites where people dress up as star Wars characters and discuss the sizes of their light sabres [a psychiatrist would have a field day with that one]. What very sad people they are. But I suppose it keeps them off the streets.
I couldn’t find anything to suggest that McGregor had insulted his fans. He did say something about Star Wars not being amongst his best films. But that’s all I could find.
And what about this bit about McGregor’s merchandise? What does he produce? Corn flakes? Deodorant? Tins of dog food? Do I have to examine every label from now on to see if it was manufactured by Ewan McGregor?
So here is a message for “Supershadow” [this kid really does have problems!].
Start Wars is a FILM. It is MAKE BELIEVE. IT DIDN’T HAPPEN. Don’t get so worked up about it. Stop masturbating in front of pictures of Yoda. Go outside and see the real world. Pick a worthy cause for your campaigns, like cleaning litter off the streets, or deposing George W.
And stop sending stupid comments to this site.
