Death's Door, the view from the Spanish announcers table: slow news day

Monday, July 30

slow news day


Did you know that back in the day Joseph Stalin attempted to have John Wayne knocked off. If you don't believe me, go look it up.

It seems that the “Duke” was such a standard bearer of good ole American right who always took great glee in telling the commies that they were a bunch of pink pantie wearing pussies that Stalin actually sent death squads to put the “Duke” in Boot Hill.

This shit lasted until Nikita (isn’t that a chick’s name?) Khrushchev came into power and squelched that shit, because unlike Joe, Nikki was a huge fan of the “Duke”.

Did you muthafuckers’s know that John Wayne’s nickname “Duke” came from a dog he had as a kid?

Yeah, as a kid he always had this mutt that followed him everywhere that went by the name of Duke, so as a result people in his town started referring to him as the “Duke”.

One of America’s greatest film heroes’s named after a dog, go figure.

That's cool! I'm a dog lover. Hmmm... Good thing the dog wasn't name Fido or Spot or something like that.

Thanks for that one Greg! Always good to get a chuckle on Monday!

I'm a fan of Wayne's constant cool .... and I will not badmouth him or his memory BUT I think the fact that his real Given Name was Marion might have had something to do with the adopted moniker!!!
Best John Wayne line....
"Sorry don't get it done, Dude."

Too cool!

My favorite Wayne line is :
"Alright, we've seen what you can do with a boy. How are you when they come a little bigger?"

Wayne was no hero he was an actor and said so himself. Actually, he said he was a stuntman who fell into acting.

He was always perplexed by his heroism which he felt he did not deserve because he pussyed out of WWII.

Strange it is that we make actors into heroes.

When I was in basic training the drill Sergeants always told us that John Wayne was an actor and not a hero so do not try to act like John Wayne.


I piss people off when I tell them John Wayne was just an actor and not a hero. I like that.
