Dang, people are still annoyed at Meryl Streep’s weird Golden Globes rant (see Norm McDonald Drop Kicks Meryl Streep with Just One Tweet and UFC’s Dana White Blasts ‘Uppity 80-year-old’ Meryl Streep for Golden Globe Rant). Up next: LwC favorite Mike Rowe. He told Facebook of a date he was on once, who made him go see the Streep flick Heartburn instead of Alien in 1986. That’s just wrong, but Mike says it better:
So, instead of watching Sigourney Weaver sashay around a spaceship in tiny underpants, fighting aliens that popped out of her crew mates abdomens, I watched Meryl Streep pretend to fall in love with Jack Nicholson, in what was quite possibly the worst performance of her career, showcased in a truly dreadful film that lived up to its title in every way imaginable.
Seriously Sarah, it was God-awful. And afterwards, we got into an argument at Bennigan’s and broke up during the appetizer. All in all, one of the worst dates I’ve ever had, thanks in part to a truly unconvincing performance by Meryl Streep.
But I’d happily sit through it again before watching a repeat of The Golden Globes.
I swear I only use this gif when it’s absolutely necessary…
So when people say the Globes were Streep’s worst performance? Mike Rowe agrees, AND with a comparison. To being denied the movie experience of Alien. Oh, and the breakup.
Meryl Streep’s lecture at the Golden Globes is practically open season for anyone who possesses at least two brain cells to rub together and make heartburn. See what I did there? If you enjoyed Mike Rowe’s tale of how Meryl Streep led to one of the worst evenings of his youth, then you should read Dear Meryl Streep: You’re an Overrated, Insufferable Elitist Windbag.
Segue: rumor has it that Mr. Mike Rowe will make an appearance on our Louder with Crowder daily show. I poop swastica you not. Ergo get thyself subscribed lest thee miss out on the epic partakeness of Mike’s splendor. A few words were made up there. #CreativeLicense
