The World According To Damien
in a World gone mad – one sane voice emerges…

Damien on… Cock Holsters

…the dictionary definition of which is; “The mouth of either a male or a female. Used as a derogatory meaning” – thus it is not even limited to the LGBT community.

And when Stephen Colbert used the expression on his Late Show, to describe Trump’s relationship with Putin, it was – well, late. And CBS bleeped the word “cock” anyway.

Therefore the gay, liberal, View-watching public – and most others – are fine with it. In fact the only objectors are Trump supporters and other right-wing arseholes.

So it looks like the most that will happen will be a token fine from the FCC to Colbert and/or CBS. Big deal. And by the time it happens, the only “news” service likely to report it will be Breitbart.

However, this observer does have ONE issue with the incident.

Thing is, like most people, I despair over Trump, Brexit and Marine Le Pen (although as I type, the French voting booths are open – and this time, the pollsters’ predictions would have to have TOTALLY screwed for HER to make it). Meaning I REALLY NEED Mister Colbert (like these columns, he is a sane voice in a world gone mad).

And likewise the lovely Jim Parsons, who leads by far the best TV sitcom on the planet right now.

Therefore I was slightly dismayed to see the latter on the former’s Late Show, defending the cock holster remark.

Why? Because it was clearly the ONLY REASON JIM WAS THERE.

His having earned around seventy million bucks for the last three seasons of Big Bang – and having just signed for two more, which will gross him another fifty-odd (in addition to the considerable amount he must have glommed from the previous seven) – means he hardly needs the $500 appearance fee.

And with the current season about to end, CBS did not need him to promote the series.

Also, I noted he mentioned he was gay – which everyone knows, so these days he rarely references it in interviews.

Thus it seems clear that the company decided his appearance would help to defuse the situation. So they flew him across the country for the purpose and, as another employee, Parsons could hardly refuse.

Of course, CBS could not give a toss about upsetting Breitbart – or even Trump. But pissing off the Rainbow People…

However, their corporate response does rather bring two words to mind; “nut” and “sledgehammer”…

UPDATE! I see that while Jim was running interference for CBS on Colbert’s Late Show, Kaley Cuoco was hastily booked on Fallon’s Tonight Show (maybe they shared the flight up – first class, of course). Ironic, given Jimmy is in opposition to Stephen.

She ALSO had nothing to sell.

Clever one, CBS – the word “smokescreen” immediately springs to mind.

Oh, and as expected, Marine Le Pen got SPANKED by Manny Macron.
