So, where were you when you found out Stan Lee Died? I was in Stan Leeís Hospital Room going ďStan? Hey, Stan! Quit fooling around! Youíre freakiní us out!Ē But seriously, Stan Lee has Died and that is no Joke. Unless youíve got some ideas. Iím too grief stricken to be funny. Grief stricken over John Belushi dying, I mean. I havenít had a funny idea since 1982. As for Stan Lee, Iím only dimly aware who he was - He was the Creative Brains behind all those Marvel Comic Books and he made a Million Cameo Appearances in a Million Movies while I was sitting there wishing Lucy Liu was in the Movie. Everybody would go ďOH My GOD, ITíS STAN LEE!!!Ē and heíd be gone before I could ask him ďStan Lee, whatís your Story, Bro?Ē
But donít worry, Stan Lee Fans, this might be a crazy Acid Logic Article Written by that John Saleeby Weisenheimer but Iím not going to put you down for having Stan Lee as your Personal Hero just because I am not that familiar with the Man and his Work. You would have to be a Total Jerk to do that. Oh, and there goes Bill Maher doing that just to prove me right! Thank You, Bill! No, make that ďFuck You, Bill!Ē When Lemmy Died just a little while ago me and all the other Motorhead people were heartbroken but no one put us down for it. And if Stan Lee had been as Scary Looking as Lemmy Iím sure Bill Maher would have kept his Big Mouth shut.
Stan Leeís Comic Books have been made into Three Hundred Million very popular Movies that I could not possibly care less about but if all those people all over the Planet have stood in line to see those Movies the Comic Books they were based on must have been some Goddam Good Comic Books! I must have read a Thousand Archie Comic Books when I was a Kid and all anybody did with that foolishness was a really shabby Saturday Morning Cartoon Show that I knew was garbage even before I read a single essay in Cahiers Do Cinema by Jean Luc Godard. There is a Series on the CW right now based on Archie Comics. What is the CW? An entire Television Network about Christopher Walken? The ďCow BellĒ Dude? I would watch the SHIT out of that!
You donít have to be a Comics Nut to appreciate Stan Leeís Achievement. I didnít have to be a Pro Bowling Fan to doff my cap in respect when . . . Whatever that Bowling Guy was called Died. Or was he a Golfer? A Pinball Wizard? It doesnít matter, when he Died I was . . . Oh, he didnít Die? Heís been alive all this Time and Iíve been wearing Black and Sending his Family Flowers every day? That cocksucker! Stan Lee really Died, right? Good! Oh, that didnít come out right. That McDonalds Food I had for Lunch, I mean. I bet nothing like this ever happened to Stan Lee! I hope it never happened to Spiderman while wearing that Hard To Take Off Leotard. Is that why nobody likes Toby McGuire any more?
So Hereís To You, Stan Lee! Anybody who means so much to so many People without leading them to invade Poland and kill Six Million people in Concentration Caps is OK with me! Iím going to Write an Article about George Romero when he Dies. Huh? George Romero already Died!?! Oh, My God! Is Wes Craven Okay? WHAT!?! WES CRAVEN IS DEAD!?! Shit! Tobe Hooper must be . . . WHAT!?! TOBE, TOO!?! Crap! Crap! Crap! Ace Frehley is Okay, right? I mean, at least heís not Dead, right? I heard he keeps getting sick . . . Oh, thatís Joe Perry? I saw Aerosmith in í78 and Joe Perry looked like heíd Died about two minutes before going onstage. Yeah, you donít have to be into Marvel Comics to respect Stan Lee any more than you have to be addicted to Heroin to to get stupid Jokes about Joe Perry. I hope Joe can get out of those black leather pants a lot faster than Toby McGuire could get out of that Spiderman costume!
Oh, WAIT! The Guy who created Sponge Bob Squarepants just Died! Oh, I donít give a fuck. At least heís doing better than the guy who created Ren And Stimpy. Even Louis CK makes fun of that Creep! Oh, man! Ouch!
