A Sick Fuck

I had dinner with a girlfriend the other night and she mentioned a friend of hers, an elderly man that she'd known for years.  So I had a brilliant idea. "Hey," I told her, "Why don't you Anna Nicole Smith him?" My friend didn't think that the idea was quite as brilliant as I did, the main flaws being that she is not a whore like Anna Nicole Smith and this guy may or may not have any money,  and also apparently things didn't work out so well for Anna Nicole Smith. Overall,  I was left feeling like maybe there was something wrong with me.  You know, mentally.

This isn't the first time that Anna Nicole Smith has screwed me.  There was that time that there was a paternity debacle--who was her daughter's father?  Not The Howard Stern or that blond guy?  I had another brilliant idea at the time.  "You know," I told John, "I bet her son is the father of her baby."
"What?" John asked.  John is hard to shock.  Once when I had  a panic attack, John calmed me by saying, "Put your head down between my legs."
"Well, you know she and her son were always close, he died mysteriously, right when the paternity thing was hitting the fan. I  bet he was the father."
Instead of embracing my brilliance, John attacked: "Only a sick fuck would come up with something like that."
"Time will tell!" I was feeling smugly confident.
Unfortunately, time was not on my side and the blond guy is the kid's father. DAMMIT.

And then it happened again. The US Airway flight lands in the Hudson River and the pilot is hailed as a hero.
"I bet he did it on purpose," I told Husbandrinka. 
"Ridiculous.  He executed an incredibly hard landing. He saved lives."
"Eh."
"Why would someone do something like that on purpose?" Husbandrinka asked.
"You know, the attention.  I heard he has a lot of new fans on Facebook.  People will do lots of crazy shit to become popular on Facebook."
Husbandrinka didn't buy it.  And this morning he tells me that the New York Times reports that the co-pilot reported seeking a flock of birds to the right of the airplane. And passengers reported hearing a thud.  I don't know.  I'd like to see their Facebook pages before I decide.

Don't be so hard on yourself! People who say they don't think things like that are lying to you. Or live under a rock. Or aren't drinking enough.

"blognut" has a point. I think of some sick shit, but I never say it out loud. Only my Hubster gets it all at full-strength so naturally he's a bit afraid of me ... and his parents are too.

So glad you visited my blog so I could find YOURS! I cracked up laughing reading this - now I'm going to have to go back through your archives and see what else I missed - right after I add you to my reader!

Whew. This is comforting, Marinka, thank you for being so candid.

I was rooting for the blond guy all along, but I had a different theory: The Howard Stern actually witnessed Anna Nicole Smith give her son the drugs that killed him. They then planned a speedy wedding (and claimed paternity to boot!) so that The Howard Stern couldn't be forced to testify against her.

I think I watch too much Court TV or True Hollywood Story.

The son being the father of Danni was brilliant forethought on your part! Sick, but brilliat. I'm so glad you were wrong.

I'm ashamed to admit that I was riveted by all the ANS coverage when all that crap was going down. Completely obsessed.

Let's be sick fucks together 'cause that's the first thing I thought about her baby's daddy, too.

I'm so glad that so many of you had the exact same thought. But were too chicken to say it first.

And Amy, that was my friend John who told me to put my head between his legs. I can't believe that you thought Husbandrinka was such a pervert. I may never forgive you.

I thought there was some odd things going on there between mom and son. You know, blonde guy probably paid someone to FAKE the test results. So you could still be right and not sick at all. Or I could be watching too much daytime TV.

I would have backed that "the son is the father" theory. And who knows, maybe for the baby girl's state of mind as she gets older, they've concealed this twist of the truth...??? Could be a conspiracy for her sake. Might want to check with those hospital tests and see if there's a cover-up.

Orr-rrr: the pilot PAID the geese to throw themselves at his windshield by promising that whatever of the flock didn't get irreparably harmed would get a free chartered flight on Migration Weekend every fall and spring for the rest of his life, providing his Facebook numbers stayed up.

I thought the same thing about Anna Nicole's kid's paternity. Although I also though since everyone in that whole drama was dying one right after the other that the blonde guy and the baby would be the next two.

Apparently I have sick fuck tendancies myself, because my husband (who has added himself as a fan of that pilot on Facebook... GAG) said he was starting up an airline safety business and my theory is that he did it on purpose to promot the business. As you say... TIME WILL TELL!

when i saw the title of this blog "sick fuck" then read "anna nicole," i immediately thought the "sick fuck" would be her old husband. he was sick and they fucked. easy.

imagine my shock, then, when i discovered the blog's title was eponymous. marinka, i must say i object strongly to this attack on your fine character, and i urge you to drop john immediately as your gay.

further, i would like to inform you, that not only did i harbor those same reasonable doubts about this so-called "hero" pilot when i first heard of his manuevers, i actually voiced them aloud - at work, in the reception/lobby, where cnn drones on incessantly. some fawning co-working was bleeting about what a "hero" this pilot was, blah, blah, blah (is there anyone in america who's NOT a hero these days?) and all i said was something like, "well, if he were really all that great, he wouldn't have flown into those birds in the first place, now would he?"

the looks i got. i couldn't quite put my finger on what they might've been thinking. but i realize now, thanks to the insights of you, marinka, that they were thinking, "sick fuck."

thank you.

I love you're blog. I live in NYC too and "eh" was my first reaction to the miracle landing on the hudson too! Yesterday, I went to go see it because it's only a few blocks from me and it changed my "eh" to "wow." anyway, keep blogging from NYC. We've def got a different perspective!

Some things do not surprise me and sometimes I think of the strangest things, so it is not unusual to hear someone else talk about it. It is all about the thought process.

I am not sure about the pilot thing...that is a very expensive crash for people to walk away from. I am sure he is still going through debriefings. However, if he was truly doing it on purpose, then it would eventually come out. It always does.

Not to one up or out sick fuck you... I'll give you my theory, because you know, you brought it up and I am SUCH a giver... I think the son is the REAL father of ANS's baby and that there was a cover up.
Seriously.
At least you live in NYC where people are a bit more open minded - any time I say something like this outloud where I live in the NH sticks - people baaaaaccckk awayyyyy.
They just can't handle the truth.
