Finger Lickin’ Dead February 13, 2012 20 comments While everyone else is anticipating a vampire slaying Lincoln, I give you Mel Gibson in “The Colonel”. 20 comments… add one Roger E Watson February 13, 2012, 3:08 pm An academy award performance !! And Mel wasn’t too bad either ! 😉 Reply Arthur Burghardt February 13, 2012, 10:36 pm Mel: I love it… you have completely redeemed yourself, brother, with this spoof… it looks damned good… why aren’t Danny Glover and I in it along with you…finger lickin’ good! AB Reply Kevin Levin February 14, 2012, 3:22 am I posted it back in 2009, but I thought it deserved to be re-aired. It’s a classic.

Reply Kevin Levin February 14, 2012, 3:55 am No questions, James. Just sit back and enjoy. 🙂 Reply Rob Baker February 14, 2012, 8:12 am Out of curiosity, has anyone read that book; Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Reply Kevin Levin February 14, 2012, 8:13 am I have no plans to read it. Reply Rob Baker February 14, 2012, 8:22 am You owe it to yourself. Reply Todd Arrington February 14, 2012, 8:29 am I have read the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter book. Ridiculous, of course, but kind of fun as long as you understand and acknowledge the ridiculousness. It’s a quick read. You can get through it in a day. Reply Rob Baker February 15, 2012, 5:35 am I loved how it seemed to match up with the history in every aspect so much that it made sense. It was such a fun leisure read. Reply Keith Harris February 15, 2012, 11:52 am Ha – so it looks like whenever Mel is not spewing anti-semetism, misogyny, or hating the English, he actually has a sense of humor. Reply Kevin Levin February 15, 2012, 12:18 pm Mel redefines what it means for actors to take risks with their roles. Reply Margaret D. Blough February 16, 2012, 5:00 am Check out his father. It doesn’t excuse Mel, but it explains a lot. Reply Kevin Levin February 16, 2012, 5:22 am No thanks. One nutty Gibson is sufficient. 🙂 Reply Margaret D. Blough February 16, 2012, 4:59 am It’s hysterical! Thanks, Kevin. As for the Abraham Lincoln book, while I’m still not sure if I want to read it, I don’t have problems with books that are clear that they are not pretending to be historically accurate. Reply John Buchanan February 16, 2012, 7:25 am Somewhere, Ron Maxwell looks up from a stupor and wonders the possibilities….Gone With The Wiener. I can see the cast Bobby Flat as Rhett Butler Rachel Ray as Scarlett O’Hara Giada DeLaurentiss as Melanie Wilkes Alton Brown as Ashley Wilkes Emeril Legasse as PGT Beauregard Mario Batali as Gerald O’Hara Robert Irvine as Lieutenant Colonel Arthur Fremantle And a special appearance by Paula Deen as Mary Chestnut Reply Tom Thompson February 16, 2012, 6:58 pm There’s a good music track to go with Mel’s Colonel Spoof. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51_43SuQjEc It is as big a waste of time as Mel’s movie short…equally funny!!!
