Johnny Knoxville Penis Bad Grandpa
I haven’t seen Johnny Knoxville’s Bad Grandpa yet, but I plan to see it soon and I thought it was interesting that Knoxville beat Gravity this weekend. I’ve always had this theory that when films (or books, or even TV shows) are released how they are received depends a great deal on what the competition is. Would American Idol have been such a huge success if there had been something better on TV to compete with it? At the time, there wasn’t anything else on TV to watch. In this case, movies viewers chose to see Johnny Knoxville’s Bad Grandpa instead of George Clooney in Gravity because they had a choice. This article goes deeper, and lists what other films did.
And though people are still going to see Gravity in theaters, I can’t help but wonder which film would have won out had they both been released at the same time. In full disclosure, I’m a huge fan of Johnny Knoxville and what he’s achieved. I’m not a huge fan of George Clooney for many reasons, one of which has to do with his political rantings all the time. I don’t care what actors who are making millions and millions of dollars think of politics on any level, or in any political direction. And so far I don’t think Johnny Knoxville has ever been too political about anything. His goal is to entertain, to make people laugh, and to create physical comedy often at his own physical expense.
In fact, Knoxville has the penis injuries to prove this. This is from a Vanity Fair article.
Says Knoxville of his meat and two veg, “It’s just like a dog’s chew-toy down there. I broke my penis about three years ago trying to backflip a motorcycle. So that did’t help its appearance, although it’s pretty cute. I still have to use a catheter twice a day and it’s been three years now.” TWO TIMES A DAY?!? We just left our bodies and floated up onto the ceiling, that’s how painful that sounds.
For those who are so inclined, you can see Knoxville’s penis here at the OMG blog. (It looks okay to me, but that photo could have been shot before he broke his penis 🙂
In any event, for more information about Johnny Knoxville, you can read about him on wiki. I also think one of the most interesting things he’s done is the way he added homoerotic scenes to his TV shows and movies. But most of all I admire him because he’s been able to entertain people during some very difficult times in the US.
Taiwan Gay Cuties
This article is more about Taiwan’s Gay Pride March, however, when you check out the photo of Taiwan’s gay cuties you’ll see what I mean. I can’t share the photo here, but it is worth the trip over there with this link.
