|Weekly Winner: Morgan Freeman|
But this week's winner is a dual award winner. Not only has Morgan Freeman won this week's Hollywood HOs award, he has also won the coveted Woody Allen Creepy Patriarch Lifetime Achievement award. Mr. Freeman has apparently either married or intends to marry his, get ready for it... GRANDDAUGHTER
OK, she is only his "step" granddaughter, but EWWWWWWW! In general, I feel that the use of "EWWWWWWW!" is unmanly in the extreme, but nothing else quite suffices. My first memories of Morgan are of him on the children's show The Electric Company in the 70's. Considering media reports that he has married, intends to marry, or in the very least is having a relationship with a woman 45 years his junior that began when she was 17, again I say EWWWWWWW!
My 12 year old son just walked by as I was writing this post and saw the picture of Morgan Freeman, but not the text. He asked, "Is that Morgan Freeman?" I said, "Yes." He asked, "How old is he?" I said, "74." He asked, "Is he still doing stuff?" I nodded and as he walked away I said softly, "Apparently."

Bravo Sahib! The Sahara dry comedic subtleties of your last sentence induced a paroxysm of giggles in me that would have been unseemly for a 10 year old girl! Brilliant!ReplyDelete
Thank you dear Crew! Conversations with Sahib Jr. often evoke these insights.ReplyDelete
Crew, you have scooped me again!! How did I miss Morgan Freeman story and yes, ewwww, is appropriate. He must have dumped his long time mistress when the cradle robbing opportunity presented itself. Stay classy Morgan.ReplyDelete
