Johnny Depp made a name for himself a couple of days ago. While in Britain(why is it comedians aka politicians and faux actors trash our country on foreign shores)? Anyway, in front of 1500 of his closest admirers he stated, "When was the last time a president was assassinated by an actor"?
Since then Mr. Depp has come under great scrutiny especially by the conservative media and rightly so.
But, actors being actors, this morning Johnny Boy issued an apology saying he was kidding and his one liner was only a joke. I suspect he began considering his losses at the box office( a film of his I've never been forced to sit through).
There are many people in this country and throughout the world who believe Hollywood stars are the be all end all when it comes to verbal utterances because they are, well, movie stars.
It too me about two minutes to come to the realization Depp ma not be academically all he's cracked up to be.
The lad was born in Owensboro, Kentucky. I like that city of 50,000 and have spent much time as a salesman peddling my wares. They have a first class bluegrass festival every year and goobers come from far and wide to attend. Depp's dad was a Civil Engineer. That's a positive. His mom was a waitress. Don't laugh. Rose Ann Barr was the same in her TV show.
Depp's mom divorced the dad whey John was 16 and settled in Miramar, Florida where she remarried. Evidently, the tips on Owensboro weren't that good. The in depth study of Depp's educational background states that at 16 he got into body cutting. It was at this time the future Einstein prodigy dropped out of school, went to La La Land. The rest is history.
As Porky Pig used to say, "That's all follks".
Isn't this a laugh riot? Johnny Depp, sage of the Midwest can't even keep up with the Dixie Chicks for brain power.
