Guess Who Won't Be Eulogizing Heath Ledger?
While the Iron Sheik is now infamous as the washed-up, senile grappler of yesteryear, there is one other spandex-clad cartoon-like hero we always turn to for inappropriate, untintentional comedy...The "Don't Call Me Ultimate" Warrior.
Sometime ago I plugged his musings "Warrior's Machete" into my RSS feed.
Like many in the entertainment and media industries, today he reflected on the life and works of the late Heath Ledger ("dead long before 28"), star of (as Warrior puts it) Bendover Brokeback. The blogosphere is full of inappropriateness. Few rival the Machete in this category.
To sum up Heath's passing, Warrior will leave you with this:
"His kid is without a father, yes, but the negative influence is now removed and his own child has the chance for a full recovery."
Seriously, go read it.
"It is sad and tragic….that we don’t demand attention be paid to greater things."
