They’re Coming! They’re Coming!

Resistance is Futile.

Matthew Bennell: [dials his phone] I’ll get the police.

Telephone Operator: [voice] Police.

Matthew Bennell: Officer, I’d like to report four bodies in my backyard.

Telephone Operator: Wait right there Mr. Bennell.

Matthew Bennell: How do you know my name?

Jack Bellicec: [Jack’s eyes widen with fear] Hang up, Matthew.

Matthew Bennell: [into the phone] I didn’t tell you my name.

Jack Bellicec: Hang up!

Matthew Bennell: [hangs up the phone] I didn’t tell them my name!

Nancy Bellicec: That’s because they’re all part of it. They’re all pods, all of them!

Trump’s Millennial Outreach Backfires With Jokes and Memes [Hollywood Reporter]

I can’t help but stare at the greaser hair strand that is out of place on that guy on the right in the picture of the cast of Children of the Corn.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Tiffany is the Marilyn Munster of the family.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: @nojo: For some reason I thought she was still in college and perhaps using that to her advantage (“Would love to help out with the campaign, Dad, but nothing is more important than my education, right?”), but she graduated in the spring, so I wonder what her excuse for staying off the front lines is. Smart move regardless.

@mellbell: For perspective, Meghan McCain was only a year older in 2008 than Tiffany Trump is now, and she took on the role of campaign surrogate with gusto.

@mellbell: Twitter pal of mine gives full credit to Marla Maples for raising Tiffany right. I never paid attention to the spawn until now, but it sounds like as good an explanation as any. Tiffany’s humanity really stood out during a week of grotesques.

Re: Phyllis Schlafly, I am not actively participating in the grave dancing, but it amuses me to no end. Just imagine the energy required to be that spiteful and hypocritical day in and day out, and for 92 years no less.

Happy 50th B-day Star Trek. Your stories don’t look a day over 40 although some of them act 12 years old.

@ManchuCandidate: I’d love to have Majel Barrett’s voice on my phone, and I can’t believe that I can’t just download an LCARS interface. It’s like those freaks at Paramount or CBS or whomever just hate making munnie.

@ManchuCandidate: I learned the single-eyebrow raise as a kid. Required holding one eyebrow down to practice, but I nailed it.

From NBC’s apparently awful Commander-in-Chief Forum:

LAUER: Did you learn anything in that briefing — again, not going into specifics — that makes you reconsider some of the things you say you can accomplish, like defeating ISIS quickly?

TRUMP: No, I didn’t learn anything from that standpoint. What I did learn is that our leadership, Barack Obama, did not follow what our experts and our truly — when they call it intelligence, it’s there for a reason — what our experts said to do.

In the reality-based community, it’s much simpler than that:

LAUER: Did you learn anything in that briefing?

TRUMP: No, I didn’t learn anything.
