I have no idea who to complain to, and that’s probably a good thing. They would no doubt be concerned that the proprietor of a gun blog was complaining, fearing that I would send my complaints to them at 3000 feet per second. I think that anyone who puts Michelle and Christina on a Hot List lower than some no name, who’s ever heard of her, chick called Bar Rafaeli need their head examined more than they need to be shot.
Here’s a strange little ad starring my favorite actress, Michelle Dockery, with a guy named Leo Gormley.
Not having anything wrong with my face I have no idea how it must be to have that sort of a facial burn, but I understand that it’s a pretty bad deal. We aren’t worried about human looking faces on animals. Baboons don’t repulse us. But take a “normal” face and mess it up like that and we have a gut reaction. I don’t get the whole “horror” angle, so I assume that it’s something he’s had to deal with. I’ll bet he got called Freddy Kreuger when that movie came out.
One thing I can say about people, if you show them what is expected out of them, 95% will happily comply. Our real problem is that we don’t know what to do or say. This ad will remind people that you treat a person like that just as you would any other guest. I think that’s kind of obvious, but I’m not sure I would have felt that way 20 years ago. I remember not knowing how to deal with people in wheelchairs until I was shown. This is pretty much just that, a quick tutorial on polite behavior.
None of us are going to go out and burn up our faces deliberately so that we can have dinner with Michelle, but I did get to the end of the ad thinking, “Lucky guy! A big smile and a hug from Michelle Dockery.” I’ll admit, I’m a bit envious of the guy.
Who are these women who are messing up Michelle Dockery’s photo?

This is a gun blog, of course. That doesn’t stop me from posting about other things that are worth noting. Besides, women are like guns. Don’t believe me? Get into an argument about what starlet is best looking. Doesn’t it sound basically like an argument over which gun for concealed carry? I say a Springfield XD .45 ACP Compact and Michelle Dockery. No doubt that others will prefer a Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm and Angelina Jolie. Still others will insist that if it isn’t a Glock .40 and Christina Hendricks, they don’t want it.
I think that no matter what else we argue about here, we can all agree that there are three women above who are messing up Michelle Dockery’s photo.
I know it will come as a great shock, but I really love costume dramas. Even ones starring annoying leftist American women pretending to be British. I’ve never been able to read anything Jane Austen wrote, but I will cheerfully sit through any Jane Austen movie. To be honest, I don’t think my wife even likes Jane Austen movies, so I’m not getting sweetie points for sitting through chick flicks.
This is what I’ve been watching recently.
It doesn’t hurt that Michelle Dockery is painfully beautiful to watch. She’s even more attractive in Downton Abbey than she was as Susan Sto Helit in Hogfather. Here she is in Hogfather as Death delivers the greatest moral of the story, ever.
Downton Abbey is so good that my wife watched the whole thing with me. Her favorite character is Carson, the butler, played by Jim Carter. It is her suggestion that one of my other favorite shows, The First 48, could be much improved by substituting Jim Carter for the narrator. Or he could just read the phone book. Either way, much improved.
Give it a look. If you have Netflix, you can watch the first season on streaming video. The second season is DVD only.
