“I will not be bullied…”

  by Galanty Miller

Let’s all take 15 minutes a week to consider the possibility that everything in which we so passionately believe is completely wrong./ I feel like I could survive in the wilderness as long as I was close to a store./ Do you realize that if we made voting as easy as browsing for Internet pornography, millions of Americans would develop a voting addiction?/ I’m terrible at strip poker because I wear a onesie./ Never let reality stop you from achieving your dreams./ I wouldn’t say I’m religious, but I consider myself “spiritual”… is what I yelled while being stabbed during the bloody prison riot./ I always forget the grammar rule. Is it “I AM going to the store” or “I IS going to the store?/ You only die once, so make it count!/

David Hasselhoff must get tired of people on the street confusing him with “Mitch”, his fictional character from Baywatch./ I always read the middle chapter of a novel first- just in case I die before I finish reading it or I never get around to starting it./ My dog thought he heard lightning & fearfully hid in the corner. But I showed him that sound was simply a gunshot from the riots outside./ If I was coaching the USA track team, I’d tell them to run faster./ My stalker wrote a book about murdering me. The jacket cover is a picture of how he’s going to do it. But I never judge a book by its cover./ Just to be clear- my personal prejudices have nothing to do with race./ I heard that Dr. Phil is not a real “Phil.”/ I don’t like it when people use the word “literablly” incorrectly. I leave, bring, and fill out my own “How was the Service?” survey cards and leave them on the table at restaurants that don’t offer them./ I believe EVERYONE should stand for the national anthem. And, yes, I’m talking to YOU, people in wheelchairs./ If young people are “millennials,” then what do we call people who are 1000 years old?/ My favorite part of Suicide Squad was when they wouldn’t let Will Smith’s kid have a part in the movie./ I murdered my evil twin in his sleep./ I have season tickets to the Super Bowl./ EVERY day is Halloween when you randomly knock on people’s doors and ask for candy./ I will not be bullied into not bullying people./ New idea for a comic book superpower: Removable Thumbs/ Honestly, I don’t find gorgeous people to be particularly attractive./ More Hollywood Discrimination: Of this year’s major movie releases, only 9% of all starting roles went to children./ It’s never an interesting time to be alive. I absolutely REFUSE to be bullied by impoverished orphaned children./ I read that 99 percent of the human body is made up of water. So when I get thirsty, I just lick myself./ Such a cruel God that He made us all so hungry all the time/ Scary Statistic: Only 38% of Americans not in prison are innocent.  Rainy days and Mondays always get me hard./ At parties, I find the most interesting people to talk to are serial killers and successful actors./ Do you know what’s ruining our political system? People. I painted my toilet bowl red, white, and blue because it’s my patriotic duty. Are nightmares fun for people who like scary movies? I went in for a sex change operation and my incompetent doctor removed the wrong penis!/ Life has taught me a lot. And in turn, I feel that I’ve taught life a lot, too./ The only good zombie is a DEAD zombie./ I shouldn’t have assaulted the umpire at my son’s Little League game, but it’s important my kids learn the value of making the right call./ Am I nervous that my 2-year-old is taking a 500-mile journey in a hot air balloon all by himself? Of COURSE I am. But it’s his passion./ Never settle for less. Instead, try to ENJOY less./ I keep going to AA meetings in Hollywood in hopes that I’ll get a sponsor who’s famous./ As an actor, I won’t do nude scenes unless it’s absolutely integral to the wrap-up party orgy./How does one survive life in prison? Answer: laughter./ Friends come and go. But enemies last forever.
