Hollywood’s version of Captain America met a real life version on Capitol Hill this week. Chris Evans, the blockbuster actor who plays the comic book hero in Marvel’s Avengers series, was pictured with House Rep. Dan Crenshaw on Friday. But Crenshaw, the Texas Republican who lost an eye during combat service in Afghanistan, had a surprise in store for Evans – a glass eye with the famous Captain America logo. ‘When Captain America sees your Captain America glass eye,’ Crenshaw tweeted on Friday.
What an unreal life for actors. Its been years now that Marvel has dominated to the point where i wonder if it ever got old for these actors and actresses. Like Steve Rodgers is probably numb to the MILLIONS of fans dressed up as Captain America for Halloween and at comic con panels. That’s all expected and standard. Its something else entirely when the biggest movie of your life premiers in a month and a political figure lifts up his eye patch only to reveal an iconic logo from a character you portrayed. An eye patch that’s used to cover up his eye that was removed because of a bomb explosion while at war. It must be an unreal feeling and an unreal thought. Makes me wonder like how The Punisher joined the war because of Captain America in the comics, It would be outrageous as an actor if i found out some military rookie joined the Army because I played a role in a comic book movie (even though in the movies he moves away from the military).
You know what else is pretty awesome? a fucking glass eye. Hear me out. It SUCKS losing an eyeball. But of all the common amputations one must get, losing an arm, a leg; an eyeball is sneaky up there. So you lose some peripheral vision. In 2019, no big deal. There HAS to be some sort of technology coming along the way that can help you see better if you lose an eye. A robot eye or what not. But besides all that, wearing an eye patch looks so awesome. Theres an air of mystery when a guy wears an eye patch. Sure you’ll look like a villain no matter what the situation, but a suave villain. And that already is better than i look, just a regular joe.
Daily Mail- He may be in the midst of a bruising presidential election campaign. But Ted Cruz has now found himself the butt of the jokes on social media, with commentators remarking on his uncanny resemblance to the Zodiac Killer. Following the debate in Houston last night, people on Twitter joked about how Cruz was in fact the serial killer and a confession was now his only way to defeat Donald Trump. Public Policy Polling cheekily included the question at the end of their Florida polls and found that 10 per cent of people thought Cruz was the Zodiac Killer, with 28 per cent saying they were ‘unsure’. Jim Williams, who put the question on the poll, said: ‘People are pretty serious about politics so we like to throw some curve balls to keep things light.’ The ‘Is Ted Cruz actually the Zodiac Killer’ meme began when an activist used it on T-shirts to support abortion clinics threatened with closure in Texas, where the senator has slashed public funding and supported measures to limit women’s access to birth control through their employers or churches. Cruz, along with rival candidate Marco Rubio, enjoyed a successful night in Houston. Together, they teamed up on the front-runner and unleashed a barrage of attacks on the billionaire. Cruz challenged Trump’s claim that he is the only candidate who will tackle illegal immigration head on.
Well that’s politics in 2016 for ya. One second you’re trying to push your republican platform and foreign policies to win the heart of the republican party and next thing you know you’re being compared to an unidentified notorious California murderer from the late 60s. Now am I keeping up with the political race going on? Absolutely not. If I just woke up and you peppered me with political questions about who’s gonna be the next president Id probably say Obama. All of this goes right over my head. But what I do know is that Ted Cruz is taking a beating, not because 100% of America disagrees with his idea on politics, but because the internet is a relentless force that continues to deliver punches to Cruz. I mean first off we had his room mate bashing the shit out of him calling him an asshole in college, and now the people have taking it into their own hands comparing him to the likes of Grandpa Munster and Kevin Malone from the Office.
Put a bald cap and gain 40 lbs and him and Kevin Malone are like blood brothers. I don’t even think he looks like the Zodiac Killer, but that might be the best result so far between the three. I mean would you rather people think you look like an old vampire on a CBS comedy sitcom or a character that is pretty much an over weight functioning retard? The answer is definitely a notorious murderer that no one has ever seen. I would rather jokes about me murdering 37 people than running over a turtle and trying to glue it back together.
P.s- You know what famous police sketch has always stuck out in my mind? Biggie’s murder suspect. Something about the bow tie and facial hair have always been burned into the back of my skull. Can’t wait till we get a black candidate that looks like him.
