Be best?

As many of you know, I LOVE irony. I would PAY for irony, and yet? With each day's breaking news I get all I need (or could handle) for free!

Take Melania Trump's "new" (or maybe 'recycled' is a more accurate way to put it?) anti-bullying campaign "Be Best". "Be Best?" WTF? I understand that Melania is not from the U.S. and had she merely said this in a speech, I would easily overlook it. But as a national campaign?......for CHILDREN no less? Was there no one to advise her that a word was missing in order for this slogan to be grammatically correct? How apropos of the current administration though? Who needs grammar, intellect, honor, or anything.......as long as you have money?

"Hello, I'm Melania. I am third wife to man who routinely disposes of spouses as they age, but know that would never happen to me."

So what's the message to kids here? Be best........but ignore grammar because you can 'be best'  without it? ( Well just look at Donald. I'm sure he thinks he's the best...since he tells people all of the time......even though he couldn't put two coherent words together besides "you're fired" if his life depended upon it.) 

Now besides the grammar, you also have the irony of a woman married to the biggest cyber-bully of all time, telling kids to 'be best' by not being cyber-bullies themselves.  How can you not love this? What's next? An ad campaign with Ron Jeremy telling kids to not look at porn?

And speaking of porn.......WTF #2: what is up with this recent spate of articles sympathizing  with 'poor Melania' who has been cheated on by her husband? Really? Maybe if she was wife #1 I could maybe muster some sympathy, but you are a model from Slovenia who married an arrogant billionaire after two previously failed marriages. Are you going to tell me that she didn't have any idea what she was signing up for? She knew. She knew what Donald was and what he could get for her and went with it. Everything has its price tag. She's paying hers now.......and it's a pretty small one. So please,  DO NOT ask me to have sympathy for this brainless, walking clothes hanger.

And don't report these things to me and expect me not to laugh.......they're just too priceless. They are best. I like.

    1. Actually this wasn't a non seXquitur but rather a "bot" trolling for something. The same "name" has appeared on other blogs with similar vagaries.

    While Melania should've known what she was getting into, I still feel a touch of sympathy for anyone who has to deal with Donald Trump 'up close and personal' as much as she does.

    Aside from the questionable grammar, "Be Best" strikes me as a pretty vague slogan... --C.K.

    1. Would you feel the same about a prostitute that ends up being solicited by a sleazy john? I tend to find it an accurate analogy. ;-)

      Well, often there's a difference between how offensive one anticipates an upcoming situation being, and how much more offensive it may actually feel once it's occurring.

      "I thought that as First Lady I'd be up to my knees in this filthy Trump swamp, but it turns out that I'm up to my neck in it!"

      "Be Best" apparently refers to rejecting any engaging in cyber-bullying, so I'm wondering what message Melania is conveying about her husband, the nation's #1 cyber-bully... --C.K.

    3. LOL. I like that clarification. It's kind of like how whores vie for superiority based on how much they charge. ;-)

      As for her message? Maybe it's "don't be a cyber-bully......unless you are a rich person buying me things." ?

  4. Right! Obviously it should have said "Bee Best".

    After all, most people like honey and bees make honey. I like honey in my morning tea - which is not a Tea Party - it's just a mug of tea.

    Hey, I'm just beeing me.

  5. I can imagine Melania the dominatrix screaming "BE BEST!!!" as she's whipping Spanky's ass.

    1. Eww. Why would anyone want to picture that in their head?!

  6. Hi KD,

    That was my first thought too. Where is the "the"?

    I love Ron Jeremy. When we used to watch pron VCR tapes we always enjoyed his films, because he had a great sense of humour. I read his autobiography too. Interesting, but rather repetitive.

    Hugs,
    Hermione

    1. The only movie I've seen him in was "Boondock Saints" and thankfully he kept his clothes on. Rosa and I don't enjoy porn movies at all and never watch them.
