WTFWJD Accidental? Yeah, Right!

Mocking "Passion of the Christ" producer, Mel Gibson, GS & Game Show Network created the new Internet game "So You Think You Can Drive, Mel." It places you behind the wheel as Mel with a bottle of tequila with the goal of making it home from a restaurant while avoiding rabbis swinging Stars of Davis (representing the Jewish community according to spokesman, John Roberts) and state troopers. You gain points by picking up tequila bottles in the process which continue to impair your ability to navigate, and your game ends after you hit five state troopers. On the license plate of Mel's video game sports car are the letters "WTFWJD." When I saw it on yesterday's Fox & Friends First, I was reminded of the bracelets with "WWJD." Of course, I also thought of what "TF" interjected therein meant and was appalled at the apparent blasphemy.

Oh, I see no blasphemy whatever in the acronym which is sort of an "inside" joke amongst Malibu-ites:  Where's The Free Wheeling Jewish Deli?

It's located on the corner of Santa Clara Blvd. and Comanche Rd. in Malibu and the owner, Mort Katz, is known for changing locations at the drop of a hat.

A bit obscure to outsiders perhaps, but certainly not blasphemous.

Clever, Geo.

Mel, apparently, is not long for this world.  Only a fool says in heart that there is no God: Sam Kinneson, Andy Kaufman, John Belushi, etc., etc.

Jon, I should have been clearer: Mel's car in the video game has the WTFWJD. I'll make that clarification. Your sentiment is right on.

My bad; I need not read on the fly...

Mel is unstable.  One day he's this way and the next he's another.  Like Bush, hates Bush.  It's frustrating.  You see this a lot, however, in Hollywood actors.  Always afraid to express conservative leanings and feeling the need to always express liberal credentials.

Joseph, Mel may be a broken reed but so am I.

James, You're a forgiven, bent reed, not broken.  

jakeho said...

Jon, I appreciate your reminding me of the proper reading of that verse. Thankfully, He has not broken this bruised reed.

Gladly, brother!  Joseph, Mel is certainly unstable.  I had hoped that when the "Passion..." came out, that he and maybe some others were turning toward the Lord in their hearts, but, oh well.  Malibu life apparently isn't working for him(in Dr. Phil lingo)is it?
