When will porn actresses, cartoon producers, clothes designers and their superstar husbands get it through their smoke-filled, hazy minds that they need to find other ways to get their careers back on track and leave the seal hunt and the people of Newfound and Labrador to live their own lives without having to listen to the bull-crap from outsiders like Pamela Anderson, Sam Simon, Paul McCartney and his super model ex-wife Heather Mills.
In 1977, Bridget Bardot spoke out against the seal hunt, in 1978 it was Tanya tucker, 2006 it was Paul McCartney with wife No. 2 speaking through a haze to the media while in Charlottetown, P. E. I., but actually thinking they were in Newfoundland and Labrador. If those memories are forgotten I apologize for bringing them up. I also apologize to anyone who watched the Juno Awards of April 3, 2006 when the host seemed to have a seal part stuck in her mouth. Her joke about her friend “Seal” earned her plenty of boos and each of them well-earned.
Why don’t those multi-millionaires stick to what he or she does best, like playing music or taking off their clothes and putting themselves in the hands of porn super studs to be used and watched by millions? They have no right to put our province's name and our people on international media to help build their bank accounts even a little bit bigger than they already are. The cheque of $1 million that was offered by Sam Simon and British Columbia’s most famous porn actress on Dec. 17 was, I believe, offered only as a way to insult proud Newfoundlanders, and give our province a black eye that we don’t deserve.
When will our local media (CBC and NTV) get it in their heads that they don’t need to try to hurt our people to sell their station’s news? Who called your station to give you a heads-up that those people were going to be at that specific building at that specific time? How much would you have to be paid to advertise for those rich idiots?
Did Don Matthews, the senior vice-president of P.E.T.A., expect a better reception from our people when he came to destroy us? I’m just happy that we are a civilized people and only fought back with words. Some countries in the world might have offered them something different.
I wonder is Sam Simon looking for more fodder for the Simpsons? Is Pamela Anderson looking for new porn studs here in our province? Whatever their real reason for being here, I would like to see them using a one way ticket out of here unless dear Pam is planning on spending Christmas on Baccalieu Island with “Sammy the Seal” as was suggested to her in April, 2006.
