Gabby and Boobie the Rocketman, Episode 1: #DoItForGabby
Entertainment lovers! Have you seen the “Gabby and Boobie the Rocketman” show? It’s a situation comedy starring a modern day duo destined to beat the hilarious foibles of the all time classic Lucy and Ricky Ricardo.
“Gabby and Boobie the Rocketman” stars Gabrielle Giffords, the poster child for gun grabbers, who has achieved stardom with her own Twitter hashtag: #DoItForGabby, and her knucklehead but adorable husband, Boobie the Rocketman, who has circled the earth weightless in oxygen-less outer space.
The series’ opening credits roll to this popular Elton John tune.
The set-up: Giffords survives a gunshot to the head during a political event in Tucson, Ariz., two years prior. Fast forward: Now in league with The Brady Bunch, Gabby’s “raison d’être” is to be the poster child for gun control in tandem with the network’s related program starring another comedic tour de force, “Preezy B ‘n da Boyz”. It’s rich!
In Season One, Episode One (“S1Ep1” in TV talk) #DoItForGabby, with air dates in February and March, hubby Boobie stubs his astro-toe. The hapless anti-gun Rocketman is publicly outed as a hypocrite when he attempts to purchase firearms he says will give him “first-hand knowledge” about the gun-buying process. Oops!
Things really get rolling when, caught by a hidden camera, Boobie says he doesn’t intend to keep the guns, but is going to hand them over to a straw-man third party (the police). What Boobie doesn’t know is that he’s just admitted he’s going to commit a felony.
In a cameo appearance, Mayberry’s patrolman Barney Fife shakes his head: “I don’t know, Boobie. I say this calls for action and now. Nip it in the bud.”
Scared and shaken, Boobie, left with only one leg to stand on, hops home to cry on Gabby’s shoulder. Will Boobie be charged with a felony? Hilarity ensues, as Twitterdom erupts in gales of laughter.
In S1Ep2 (TV lingo) – titled, “Ban all dogs!” Boobie the Rocketman strolls on a California beach with his teenaged daughter and her 65-pound bulldog. Boobie tries to control the semi-automatic assault dog when it breaks loose and mauls a sea lion to death. Unbeknownst to the Rocketman, the entire scene is captured on video, making Boobie the butt of more jokes, headlines and hashtag hijinks.
The “Time to ‘ban dogs’?” episode brings Rocketman’s Facebook page more than 5,000 comments, launching the series into the ratings stratosphere with the tagline: “Better add dog to the banned list in the assault weapons bill.”
In the current episode “Join the fight for safer U.S.” (S1Ep3, air date April 7), the couple’s sidekick Geobbels Axelgrease walks Main Street clad in an electronic sandwich board advertising a “poignant” op-ed written by his friend Gabby. In it, Gabby complains she’s impatient. Will the loveable Boobie the Rocketman try to hurry things along? Stay tuned! Like “I Love Lucy,” this comedy duo is definitely snort-worthy!
Speaking of snort-worthy …
As his career with the peacock winds down, Tonight Show host Jay Leno got a few yuks at the media’s expense with this remark during his opening monologue last week: “And in a groundbreaking move, the Associated Press, the largest news gathering outlet in the world, will no longer use the term ‘illegal immigrant.’ That is out. No longer ‘illegal immigrant.’ They will now use the phrase ‘undocumented Democrat.’ That is the newest – ‘undocumented Democrat.'”
We’re not sure if it was AP or Leno that got the biggest laugh, but both got plenty of Twitter attention.
Sen. Ted Cruz no April fool
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, revealed Easter-bunny-quick wit and humor with a hat trick of April Fools Day jabs at President Obama. He tweeted three photos mocking the President’s statements on Obamacare, leaving the president with er … leftover Easter egg on his face.
The honorable senator from the great state of Texas was on a roll when he also mocked this egg laid by the New York Times: “Senator Ted Cruz
@SenTedCruz 1 Apr Can’t make this up: NYT issues correction on Easter, a holiday about which they apparently weren’t that familiar: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/344374/classic-correction-kathryn-jean-lopez …”
We’ll be watching for more Twitter asides from Sen. Cruz in the days to come. Related: #DefundObamacare: Sen. Ted Cruz takes the fight to defund Obamacare to Twitter
Not funny: Leftists gleefully hope pastor’s son’s suicide gay-related
This past weekend we learned that Matthew Warren, son of mega-church Pastor Rick Warren, had taken his own life. Sadly, not everyone on the Web reacted with compassion.
Blogger “Sooper Mexican” aggregated some of the hateful, vicious tweets, noting, “I find it odd that people who would call themselves gay advocates would hope so ghoulishly that Rick Warren’s son, who tragically committed suicide yesterday, was gay in order to smear Christianity. According to news reports, Warren’s son had struggled with mental illness all his life.
“Of course, there are many kinds of illness that strike all kinds of people, but leave it to the despicable left to hope to justify their hatred for religion by wishing a suicide was caused by homosexuality,” Sooper Mexican concluded.
Pastor Rick Warren authored “The Purpose Driven Life,” which has sold over 32 million copies worldwide.
How did #stupidcelebs get there from here?
Pop stars Beyonce and her hubby “Jay-Z” are under scrutiny by at least two members of Congress for tripping to Cuba. Their jaunt made worldwide news, prompting the investigation by Florida’s Cuban community reps into why the pair was allowed to visit the off-limits, communist-ruled country.
Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart, whose districts have a high Cuban-American population, wrote to the Office of Foreign Assets Control demanding “information regarding the type of license that Beyonce and Jay-Z received, for what purpose, and who approved such travel.”
Among those weighing in with 140-character opinions was Cindy McCain, wife of Sen. John McCain, who tweeted: “Rodman goes to N. Korea, Beyonce goes to Cuba. Do these people know how to read? Freedom enabled them to be successful. Not oppression.”
