International Steve Guttenberg Day
I forgot to celebrate International Men’s Day last month. For those who whine ‘why do women get their own day? Why don’t men?’ The answer is that they do – it was November 19. Like me you all just forgot, or more likely just didn’t really care. Personally I don’t think men need a day devoted to them, apart from one whose efforts I don’t think get enough recognition.
I am of course talking about Steve Guttenberg, star of 80′s movies such as Short Circuit and Coccoon. I just get sick of tired of people saying that he wasn’t funny or a very good actor.
Yeah? Well let me tell you this – in 1983 Steve Guttenberg was in a TV movie called ‘The Day After’, which was about the effect of a nuclear war on ordinary people in Kansas and Missouri. Ronald Reagan saw this movie and wrote that it ‘left me greatly depressed’, and it prompted a change in US nuclear policy and it’s policy toward Russia. That’s right… Steve Guttenberg actually saved the planet for real – with the power of his acting. He is a saint who should be worshipped and have monuments erected in his honour.
So yeah. Think about that next time you watch Police Academy ironically.
