Silver Medals, Removing Tattoos, and Septuagenarian Rocky Fighter Names

Nappoholics Anonymous is a weekly column featuring twelve random thoughts by actor Tony Nappo. Some are funny, some are poignant, some bother him, and some make him weep from sadness while others make him weep for joy. Here are his thoughts: unfiltered, uncensored, and only occasionally unsafe for work.

1. Trump proposes twenty percent of the teaching force be composed of men and women who receive proper military training—the type of training where you are taught to shoot and kill the enemy on sight—to stop any potential mass shooters by shooting them dead.

America has literally become its own enemy.

2. Cousin Post of the Week

3. If Jocelyn Larocque wanted to wear a gold medal instead of a silver one, she probably should have won that fucking game.

4. Kate always thinks she is right. But I may have to give her this one.

Me- I finally took those fake tattoos off.

Kate- With what?

Me- Steel wool.

Kate- What!!?? You could have maybe started with rubbing alcohol or something. A step down?

Me- Yeah, maybe.

5. When I turned fifty last week, I decided that I am saving swimming for my sixties, golf for my seventies, and Stratford for my eighties.

10. I just signed on to play the local butcher in a new Italian-Canadian musical/horror film series tentatively titled The Sang Witches of Woodbridge.

11. Actor Eddie G has the distinction of being the first actor to do a session with Pierre Gautreau in front of the new post-apocalyptic wall that Pierre asked me to paint for him.

Putin to Trump.
