The Saturday Night Snicker

So it's Saturday night and I'm sitting around cruising the Intarweb before heading off to my 11:00 p. m. Super-Secret Support Group meeting when I run across my friend Wayne's blog entry discussing, among many other things, the new Batman movie. The take-home message was how difficult it was reconciling Heath Ledger the actor with Heath-Ledger-as-Joker:

"Seriously, if I had been in space for the last several years (not an unlikely possibility) and I saw the film (back on Earth) and was asked who played Joker, well, I'd have needed several dozen guesses, after ruling out the obvious, Ernest Borgnine, Abe Vigoda, either of the Olsen twins, Mr. Food."

Which got me to thinking:

"THERE'S an image for ya: Ernest Borgnine or Abe Vigoda playing The Joker in some Bizarro World Batman movie. Oh, I would SO love to see that! Oh, shit. Now that image is embedded in my braaaaain!"

To which Wayne responded:

"The outfits would be crotchless, front and back. Fishnets for Vigoda. Hey, Rev. Let's come up with something involving the tag phrase 'Fishnets For Vigoda.' Let's go viral."

And we should! Forget Andre the Giant, it's Abe Vigoda all the way!

Hey, Rev. Here's what I think needs to be done. We start up one of those multiple contributor blogs and call it FISHNETS FOR VIGODA. We can do entries on whatever we want, but Google demands that if someone were to look up Detective Fish, our joint post would top the list.

I think we tend to overplay our sentiments in the face of a tragedy. I understand that Ledger was an up and coming celebrity, what with Brokeback Mt (which I never got around to seeing, not that there's anything wrong with that-but my parents did) and all, but once again it seems that "nothing became his career like the (untimely) leaving of it." Considering the mega-success of the most recent BM movie, I would seriously putting the film makers under possible house arrest. Just where were they when the OD occured? And to have one of the Olmygodson twins involved somehow, is just too too.
And what is that Fishy photo about? Abe Vigoda has a What?
