Awesomeness wrapped up in an awesome bun with cheese

I had forgotten how awesome Rocky IV was. Not because it was a great movie - in the Rocky series, it embodied every possible "Rocky Cliche" developed in the first three movies. But what Rocky IV did was perfect the montage. I present for you, my humble reader, two of the best montage spoof/tributes I have ever seen:

F*** Joe the Plumber

Honestly, the title says it all.

So, this tool, "Joe", came out said he didn't even like McCain, after all.

From the article:

he said he was appalled by former GOP presidential nominee John McCain's reasons for supporting the government's $700 billion bank bailout plan. "I was angry," Wurzelbacher said. "In fact, I wanted to get off the bus after I talked to him."

So what was he angry about? He won't say. "Joe" says if you want to know, you'll have to READ HIS BOOK, which is due out shortly.

No longer shall he be known as "Joe the Plumber", but now he can be called "Joe the Author". It's bad enough that America decided to make this guy a expert of Modern Economic and Governmental Theory (I'm sure he's well-qualified in both areas, with advanced degrees and such on both topics), but now he's cashing in with a book deal. I don't blame him for making money on the book thing, I blame the people who said "You know what would be a good book? Something written by Joe the Plumber".

Honestly, I didn't even care until I read the "if you want to know, read my book" bit. Go F yourself, Joe the Tool.

Breaking news: I have learned the title of his new book. It's "Joe the Plumber and Curious George visit Washington D.C.". Apparently, they find this little paper guy, Bill, singing about how he wants to be a Law someday, but the Man in the Yellow Hat ties up Bill in committee where dies a long, slow, painful death.

Listen *sswipe, your fifteen minutes were up on November 4th. Go away. Now.
