Being that my cats’ names are Bueller and Sloane This guy can go take a long walk of a very short pier. -Advertisement- Comments Barron Barnett says: on 6/12/2011 at 8:40 PM This person's just upset they didn't have the balls to do something like that on their own in high school. By far it should be seen by all teenagers. While not every kid is going to roll around in their dads classic car, the core statement is valid. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, life may just pass you by. guffaw says: on 6/12/2011 at 8:48 PM So, when you call your cat, do you do it ala Ben Stein? "Bueller, Bueller"? Sean D Sorrentino says: on 6/12/2011 at 10:00 PM I read that column a few hours ago and all I could think was "what an A-hole." Is this guy applying the first rule of "how to be a successfull 'public intellectual'?" That rule is "say something incredibly controversial while hiding behind racism/sexism/classism so that the chat shows hire you to opine." I think his argument is "FBDO is racist/sexist/classist for these obscure reasons that you don't understand. The fact that you don't understand proves that you are racist/sexist/classist, so you need me, the 'public intellectual' to explain the racism/sexism/classism inherent in the way you think and act. Pay me money." I think that this is just a more sophisticated version of the looney militant lesbian lady who claimed that the storyline on the Firefly episode "Our Mrs. Reynolds" proved that Joss Wheden raped his wife.

Actually, I am not sure if I have ever seen it... Turk Turon says: on 6/12/2011 at 10:30 PM On behalf of the gunnies, I think Ferris is a righteous dude. Weer'd Beard says: on 6/12/2011 at 10:48 PM Seriously? OK I can see (see, not agree) when people say they didn't like "Citizen Kane", Labrat and Stingray don't seem to share my love of David Lynch Films like "Eraser Head", I don't get too broken up about that...they call me "Weer'd" for a reason. But seriously? Bitching about "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"??? Really? aczarnowski says: on 6/13/2011 at 8:55 AM Something about assholes, coal, two weeks and a diamond comes to mind... Tam says: on 6/13/2011 at 11:07 AM If the movie is so unimportant and sucky, how come he has to write a big whiny rebuttal about it a quarter century later? Robb Allen says: on 6/13/2011 at 11:08 AM Because someone, somewhere is enjoying it without understanding the racist undertones that exist in the film. And we can't have that now, can we? Tam says: on 6/13/2011 at 11:37 AM That is as unbelievable as the chick who was telling me that I should hate Say Anything because Lloyd was being all patriarchally rape-y and stalking Diane by standing in the yard with the boombox.
