Sure, you knew that scary-talented Fear Factor host Joe Rogan waxes rhapsodic about tripping on DMT, but did you know he also takes time out of his busy schedule — a lot of time! — to childishly flame people on MySpace.com? It’s true!
You know, whenever you see something ugly like this, the I am rich and you are not fall-back argument is the one sure sign of a jackass. As if being randomly lucky enough to get money out of the system is the only metric of human accomplishment. As if this world was a big video game and your savings account is your high score. As if someone who is monetarily successful is somehow quantifiably better than others who are not. As if, as if, as if. What a jerk.
In other news, Rogan’s old semi-partner Doug Stanhope turns out to be genuinely funny — check out his recent albums some time — and if you’re able, try not to judge him by his loose affiliation with Joe Rogan, or the “Girls Gone Wild” thing, which is somehow even harder to take. Then again, I bet Doug was the kind of kid that Joe used to beat up on* in high school.
