"Oh, PLEASE, don't chop my head off, Mr. Goatee . . . "
27 April 2017 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . pleads the fatally annoying Gabby Goose as another prophetic Warner Bros. Omen of Doom--PORKY'S HOTEL--comes to a close. Anyone unfamiliar with Warner's Animated Shorts Seers division (aka, The Looney Tuners) will be aghast that a brief "kid's cartoon" from the 1930s would end on such a sour note. However, almost every Loyal Normal Patriotic Average True Blue Progressive Union Label American who's been exposed to these Warner Bros. Warnings to We Citizens of the (Then) Far Future recognizes that these clairvoyant predictions of our country's upcoming Calamities, Catastrophes, Cataclysms, and Apocalypti form a body of prognosticating far more extensive and accurate than any One Thousand Quatrains from Nostradamus. The uppity Gabby is so mouthy and solipsistic here that Viewers of Any Era will want to rush at their screen and knock our this character's teeth, exactly like they're tempted to do to any member or supporter of the Deplorable U.S. Rump Administration. However, Warner is warning us specifically here NOT to litter America's sidewalks with chipped out teeth, angry tufts of gray hair, or dislodged pacemakers. Though it may SEEM like we're on the verge of that part of Revelations dealing with city streets coursing with Rivers of Blood, perhaps Cooler Heads can STILL Save the Day by Repealing and Replacing that Moldy Racist Suicide Pact from the 1700s (a Constitution that was INTENDED even by the "Slave"-whipping Founders to be supplanted every 20 years or so through a Constitutional Convention with something in tune with the Future!!) and deporting the Rump Family Crime Mob along with their 62 million Red Commie KGB Sex Criminal Enablers North to Canada for a Seven Generation Cooling Off Period. Even if these pathetic miscreants refuse to Self-Deport, Warner uses the current Secret Service Code Name for America's High Treason Executioner--"Mr. Goatee"--to suggest a Plan B: For the Sake of the Nation, who wouldn't cast a ballot for chopping off one head?
