8742: Clowning Around.
A midweek MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• 50 Cent is launching a comedy site, with proceeds going to Japan’s relief fund. Um, is this an apology for his “comedic response” to the disaster in Japan?
• The White House released a copy of President Obama’s birth certificate. In a press conference, President Obama said, “I know there is going to be a segment of people for which no matter what we put out this issue will not be put to rest. But I am speaking to the vast majority of the American people, as well as to the press. We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do.” Donald Trump offered this silly response: “I am really honored and I am really proud, that I was able to do something that nobody else could do.” Apparently, not everyone has better stuff to do.
• A new poll showed Baby Boomers do not have major age-related problems in the workplace. According to the poll, 61 percent say their age is not an issue at work, and 25 percent think it is an asset. The figures do not apply at all to the advertising industry.
