Similarly, I vividly recall being used as a decoy as a young child while he and his friends tried to sneak into the Knicks locker room. I should probably have Uncle Mike billed directly for at least half of my therapy fees.
I've written about him before. He had a few shark-jumpers to add. Normally I would just plagarize and pretend they were my own but he reads this blog and probably wouldn't sit by quietly. Here are some of his...
Marriage: Heterosexual, homosexual, polysexual ... the whole retched institution has definitely jumped the shark. (Ed. note: Yes, Uncle Mike is married. We can only hope his wife, like my husband, does not read this blog.)
Girls Gone Wild: Mark Foley's text messages to those Congressional pages were hotter. Enough already.
Celebrity Apprentice: Donald, you thought Andrew Dice Clay was a good choice because??? (Ed. note: Oh, Uncle Mike, I don't mean to disrespect my elders but HOW WRONG YOU ARE.)
Grown Men in Cowboy Hats: Unless they're gonna wear the little plastic belt, holster and water gun that comes with it, it doesn't work. (Ed. note: Are grown men in short order cook hats okay one wonders?)
He had a whole host of ones involving politics as well. However, if my husband finds my blog and sees I want to sleep with Chuck Wicks, Daniel Craig, Vince Vaughn, the guy down the street, the guy who mows our yard (well, you get the idea), he'll get over it. If he sees I published that Fox News, Ann Coulter, Bobby Jindal and the entire GOP jumped the shark, HELLO DIVORCE. So if you see a list of anti-Republican shark jumpers, read here that I am passively aggressively trying to get my husband to leave me. Which is exactly how I'd probably go about it.
Interested in how I'm coping after the most beautiful man on Earth got unceremoniously tossed from DWTS and who will get the boot tonight (pun intended as I think it will be Ty)? Look no further than here.
