Look Into My Eyes...

If you're not a Little Britain fan, the header will be lost on you. But not to worry...

You've probably watched the Tom Cruise whacked out Scientology video by now. Gawker has stood strong in the face of the famously litigious Mr. Tighty-Whitey Dancing Boy and left it up. It's still here as of this moment.

Usually when others riff on something like this, it's gets really old, really fast. Except, not this time. Craig Ferguson (who makes me laugh like a maniac just by opening his mouth) defied his own producers and ran this the other night. Ha! Take that, Top Gun.

But Ann Telnaes, a political cartoonist over at the Washington Post, puts an even better spin on all this. Others have mentioned the Goebbels-like language out of CruiseControl, but I like Telnaes' take even better. Check it out here. Still they walk among us, and even do their own stunts.

Oh, and on a final note? The two most distraught parents on the planet must be Martin and Kathleen Holmes.

This was pretty comical stuff, both the original indoctrination video and the spoof. after understanding how psychic Tom Cruise is I have to wonder if we'll see him at Wall Street ready to rescue swan diving market traders? Maybe he doesn't have to.
Maybe he's beaming them right now. "Stay away from the roof top, sign over all the company holdings to United Artists. Trust me, I know what I'm doing. I look great in an military uniform and eye patch. Life is good."

First I followed your links. Interesting. Funny! Though thoroughly enjoying them, I found that the clip of Cruise left me confused while trying to follow his incomplete sentences, laughing and various sound effects. Googled "Scientology" and read a whole lot. Learned plenty and am now able to form my own opinion based on some education on the religion/cult (depending on who you read). Have been meaning to do this for some time. Thanks for the impetus!

Uh. Yeah.

He's lost the plot. Somebody hand him a proper script, eh?

Jeez.
