The latest object of my misplaced reality TV scorn

Posted on May 7, 2004 @ 8:29 am

Dost my ears deceive, or did resident Survivor All-Stars idiot Big Tom attribute the quotation “Et tu, Brute?” to Jesus during last night’s tribal council?

I think you’re a little confused there, Big Tom. Jesus actually said, “Fredo, you’re my older brother and I love you, but don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family again. Ever.” The “Et tu, Brute?” line was what Hulk Hogan said to Randy Savage right before the Megapowers exploded at Wrestlemania V.

P.S. Thanks again, Big Tom, for your tireless efforts in perpetuating every negative stereotype associated with people from rural Appalachia for a worldwide television audience that may never have a chance to meet someone from the region.

    Yeah, all he needed was a banjo and an inbred mountain child.

    No no no…it was when Zodiac Man, aka Brutus the Barber Beefcake aka Brother Bruti turned on Hulk during his WCW stint…that’s when Hollywood said it…

    I fear Appalachia shall never gain the respect of the nation…consarnit…

    It would be easy to disdain Big Tom, if he didn’t remind me so much of my late Uncle Bud.

    It’s too easy for me to forget that I’m only 2 generations removed from shirtless guys in overalls.
