Go Away, OJ

It seems like only yesterday when I sat glued in front of my t.v. set, waiting with baited breath to see what would happen today. The “Trial of the Century” they called it and man were we hooked or what? I admit that I became a total junkie. There wasn’t anything I would rather talk about, nothing I’d rather think about – I had to solve the mystery.

As did many of us, apparently. What was really a three ring circus, starringa dyfunctional judge, a prosecutor who couldn’t look attractive regardless of her hair style or makeover, a cast of the weirdest witnesses ever to sit in a witness box and some of the most expansive gasbags in Beverly Hills (also known as lawyers).

I admit too that at first I didn’t want OJ to be guilty. I was particularly a fan of his, nor did I watch any of his movies – but, he was an icon not just of football but of the American Dream. I really didn’t want to blow up that image in my head and replace it with the reality that he was simply a narcissistic psycho who got away with murder.

After millions of dollars, mountains of evidence, hundreds of witnesses and volumes of testimony, the most inept prosecution team in the history of California and perhaps the country, managed to lose a case that should have been a slam dunk. And you may not know this but I kid you not, they all got a BONUS after they lost the biggest murder case in decades. Yep, I paid for that too.

Okay, so it’s over and thank Gawd, because by the time it was over I never, ever, ever, ever, wanted to hear about it, him, them or anything having anything to do with it. Never again. Much as I felt for the Browns and the Goldmans I was fresh out of sympathy and interest in the saga. Stick a fork in me because I was done with a capital D.

Since then, there have been the odd news item about the murdering s.o.b. which may have been amusing but certainly not interesting. And for the most part, OJ ceased to exist in my world. Can I get an, Amen?

But, apparently the universe doesn’t feel we’ve had enough OJ and apparently OJ doesn’t think we’ve had enough of him either, since the idiot went out and kidnaped, and held people at gunpoint over his old OJ shit.

You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting some story, news report, article or conversation about it. You know what I say? Big f’ing deal. The jerk committed yet another crime. Are we surprised? Are we honestly shocked in any way? Are we amazed by the new depths the man has managed to sink? I think not. Yet, our information suppliers (aka the media) are all atwitter over OJ’s latest bullshit and they can’t get enough of it, so we can’t get enough of it.

But I have a suggestion for the media. If you really want to drive the guy crazy, drive him up the frickin’ wall – why not just ignore the whole damn thing? Nothing bothers a narcissist more than being ignored. Nothing enrages them more. Nothing freaks them out better than that. You media guys want to see OJ’s head explode, ignore him. Treat him like the scurvy little spider that he is. Treat him as though he matters not and I promise you will get the story of the century. I can see the headlines now, “OJ Spontaneously Combusts on Larry King Live! Ignoring OJ May be Responsible for his Giant-Ass Brain Tumor Which Doctors Have Confirmed is Inoperable. OJ Takes Off for the Moon Without a Rocket Ship!”

Yeah, I like the sound of that. I like the idea of him sitting in a jail cell and being ignored and treated like he is no better than the dust bunnies under my bed. I really like it.

Hey OJ! Just go away!

  1. Amen to that sister!
    Actually it wasn’t such huge news here in Oz at the time. It was big, but not huge, if you know what I mean?!

    Oh, I know what you mean – I wish it was no news here. That would suit me just fine.

  2. i don’t even know what’s going on with him now and i super don’t care.

    That’s right – I highly recommend you keep it that way. You don’t want to know, believe me.

  3. OJ’s a big blubbering transparent nancy boy. If he wants attention he should kill himself. The media loves celebrity suicide!

    Oooh DT, you are so deliciously bad. Yes, good idea – now all you have to do is convince him. πŸ˜‰

  4. I’d tell you what I’d really think but it’s not very nice.
    I say hang the lyin’ bastard from a tree.
    He more than deserves it.

    I could get behind that. Mostly, I would just like to see him suffer the terror and pain that he inflicted on others. The man is just fricking evil.

  5. Good point. Very good point. Attention seekers go bizerk when you ignor them. It’s the best weapon πŸ™‚

    Hey Bella,
    Yeah, it would be great if we could just get people to ignore this loser. He would take care of himself by just imploding from the lack of attention. πŸ˜‰

  6. What’s sad about the whole thing is that He Really is a psychopath. I mean he commits these acts with no remorse and almost makes a mockery of those die hards who still believe him. But at this point, I think they need to lock him up in a mental ward. Who steals their own sports memorabilia worth 1500 bucks? What a loser…..snoozer. Pull the plug on Entertainment Tonight, I’d rather watch Hillary put on make up.

    Hey Kim,
    Given the choice, I think I’d rather watch Hillary put on makeup too – although that would be a long and arduous watch – sort of like watching paint dry. πŸ˜‰

  7. LMAO do you know what the initials “OJ” stand for…..

    “Original Joke” sorry to say and I don’t like to be mean but, he was ok at football, his movies sucked, his jury sucked, the civil law suit was a waste of time, and now so does this. I shut my TV or change the channel everytime they start talking about him. I gave too much of my attention the first time he messed. No thanks!

    {{smiles}} Have a good weekend WC

    Hey Lucid,
    Yep, original joke describes him quite well.

  8. The thing about OJ is that he was a thug from the beginning. Ive seen his pals from his SF neighborhood interviewed, one laughing about what hoods they were and what they got away with.

    OJ was only different in his ability to parlay that violence into a great NFL career.

    Hey Ben,
    You know, I never heard that before. Interesting isn’t it, how people are who they are, regardless of fame, fortune or success.

  9. You have heard it here first. OJ Simpson’s attorney just announced a law suit including the city of Las Vegas as well as a few other companies for the use of the Las Vegas slogan
    “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” The claim from OJ’s team is that the city is under a breech of contract with OJ as a victim that the city of Las Vegas allowed information to be passed to the media without his consent. Hence the slogan being misleading. The lawsuit is set at $300,000,000.

    Why am I not surprised? Jeez Louise this stuff is getting so utterly stupid that I want to scream. Hopefully, there will be a judge somewhere who says no to the frivolous lawsuit – we can only pray. On the other hand, if he wins, then all that money will go to t he Goldman’s and Browns – okay, I’d be okay with that if that happened.

  11. OJ is a fucking asscock. hopefully he’s going to prison, like he should have the first time. nuff said.

    I’d like it if he went to his own prison planet – where they had no television, sycophant reporters, sick fans or women. Yep, that would do it.
