Just when you think the United Nations has reached to bottom of the barrel of uselessness they bust out a hammer and break through the bottom to sink even further into the abyss.George Clooney has been named “Messenger of Peace” by the bureaucratic body and, therefore, will be charged with, well, we’re not sure. The, let’s call it what it is, publicity stunt by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will mean 100,000 times more than nothing. And since anything multiplied by zero is zero…Oh, you get the idea.
On a positive note, maybe Clooney can do to the UN what he did to the Batman franchise – completely ruin it. (Note to comic book nerds: we are aware of the Batman Begins series, we’re talking about the Tim Burton series.)
