Last night I went out with Corey, Elli, and her friend Andrea. We were sitting at a nice Italian place chatting it up when the conversation took a fun turn. Being huge fans of Fight Club we sat and asked each other which celebrity we'd like to fight. Many names were thrown out including Rosie O'Donell, John Mclaughlin, Cameron Diaz, Bill O'Reilly, and Vladimir Putin.
Finally other topics arose as we ate our dinner, but every now and then I piped up with a name out of the blue which may or may not have annoyed the others at the table. Finally one name came to my head and I couldn't help but blurt it out.
"The Reverend Al Sharpton," I declared.
The whole table fell silent.
"Good answer," Corey said.
Elli and Andrea laughed. We discussed the finer points of kicking the crap out of the infamous pastor, but we all agreed he's such a master of extortion that I may have a crappy life afterwards. Still if the fight did commence and after I won I'd wear that fact proudly like a badge. I wonder if they have bumper stickers for that. "I kicked the crap out of the Reverend Al Sharpton and all I got was a bunch of protesters."
Who would you fight?
So for Thursday music I bring you a song mixed from Fight Club.
"If you play the theatrics too much, you get in the way of your own cause." - Al Sharpton
