Apology Thread
7/23/2010 | vbmoneyspender

Posted on 07/23/2010 8:47:03 PM PDT by vbmoneyspender

In the old days, when someone wanted you to apologize it was for something you had done to them. And the way it worked was they would ask you for an apology and you would tell them to go screw themselves. But we live in a new age where apologies are done differently. Nowadays, the way apologies work is that you demand that someone you don't personally know apologize to someone else that you don't personally know. This is another form of modern outsourcing and, as such, has become quite the rage in the more technologically sophisticated areas of the United States.

As a result, in order to keep up with the times, I am creating this Apology Thread and starting it off with my own demands for apologies from people I have never met. First, I demand that George Lucas apologize to Star Wars fans for writing and directing Stars Wars Episodes 1, 2 and 3 and that he further apologize to movie fans in general for producing Howard the Duck. Second, I demand that Norm Coleman apologize to the good people of the state of Minnesota for losing to Al Franken in the 2008 senatorial race. And because this race had national implications, Norm Coleman may want to consider expanding his apology to include the citizens of all these United States. Third, I demand that Madonna apologize to Kabbalah worshippers for joining their religion and thereby making a mockery of it.

Now that I have issued my apology demands, I would like to invite my fellow freepers to issue their own apology demands to people they don't know.

And lastly, because I don't want this post to end on a purely negative note, I would like to personally thank Mitchell Mortaza for founding the Women's Lingerie Football League. Mitchell, if you are reading this, I just want to say "Never Give Up! Never Surender!"

I know a lot of sorry people but I’ve never heard them apologize for it.

Norm didn’t lose. He just refused to fight when Al stole it from him. Honestly, Al might hurt, but I think we’ll be able to replace him with a Rod Grams type easier than Coleman.

I want “conservatives” who either stayed home in 2008 or voted for Bob Barf to apologize. They are just as responsible for 0bummer as the idiots who voted for him.

Nowadays, the way apologies work is that you demand that someone you don't personally know apologize to someone else that you don't personally know.

And what if that person didn't even actually commit the act he is supposed to apologize for? For instance I haven't yet gotten around to apologizing for all those slaves I never owned.

You’re sorry? Think how your sister-in-law feels. She only slept with you to prove to your wife that you weren’t gay after all. The jury’s been out on that for a long time.

I would like to apologize to my wife 3 times.


I have no idea what I'm apologizing for - I just want to get 3 of them in the bank for the week-end.
She can apply them as necessary.

You are going to need some acme strength and buchoo amounts of Holy Water for this.

Maybe you should include the Ganges river to be sure.

The 6 Most Insincere Apologies of All-Time

For most of us, an apology actually means something. If you hurt somebody’s feelings, laugh/throw things at a kid in a wheelchair or repeatedly violate a restraining order of a certain SOMEONE, you offer a heartfelt apology and move on with your life.

But for famous types who have lawyers and publicists, the public apology becomes an important business strategy, with all sincerity stripped away. We’re talking about apologies like...

#6.Jason Giambi on the Subject of Steroids

What Makes Him an Insincere Sack of Lies:

#5.Governor Eliot Spitzer and Prostitute Ashley Dupre

What Makes Them Insincere Sacks of Lies:

#4.Congressman Tom Feeney and the Abramoff Scandal

What Makes Him an Insincere Sack of Lies:

#3.Pacman Jones, Guns and Strippers

What Makes Him An Insincere Sack of Lies:

#2.Alec Baldwin Screams Obscenities at His Child

What Makes Him An Insincere Sack of Lies:

#1.Michael Richards and Racism

What Makes Him An Insincere Sack of Lies:

I’d like for Mark Kirk to apologize for running for Senate in Illinois. And to apologize for pretending to be a Republican. And while I’m at it, I’d like to ask Trent Lott to apologize for not pursuing another career besides politics.

I’d like for Michelle Obama to apologize for every outfit she’s ever worn, ever.

I’d like for Cheney to apologize for not also punching Leahy on the floor of the Senate.

That’s a good start.

Archie: All right, all right, I apologise.
Otto: You're really sorry.
Archie: I'm really really sorry, I apologise unreservedly.
Otto: You take it back.
Archie: I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.

I'm sorry I held my nose and voted for McLame. I'm sorry he threw the election.

I'm sorry that since I vote absentee as a military member, and I didn't receive my absentee ballot (even though Michigan always sent my ballot before) and I had to fill out a provisional ballot, my vote against Obama was never counted.

Finally, I demand that illegal immigrants apologize to the citizens of the US for stealing.

I’ll add one from just a couple of days ago: that lady from the Journalist who described her rapturous glee if she were to see Rush Limbaugh having a heart attack, then apologizing “to anyone I may have offended” — not specifically Rush himself.

The “to anyone I may have offended” routine is a modern gimmick as well, as the offender pretends that there’s a possibility that nobody was offended at all, or at least does not deign to agree that a specific person or group of people were indeed mistreated.
