Pauline Hanson has a Golliwog face mask now.
There’s really not much more to the story beyond that. Hanson, who has been publicly accepted to be racist since the 90s, took to Facebook to proudly show off the face mask adorned with golliwogs, which have been publicly accepted to be racist since about the same time.
No two ways about what’s on that mask.
It is as clear as day.
It is what it is.
And it raises a few points. Chiefly: What the fuck.
The fuck is the point of this? Some sort of bullshit heat magnet? A really dumb attempt to “trigger the libs” or something? An invitation to get someone to demand she take the mask off in some sort of roundabout anti-mask statement?
Whatever the point is, it’s boring. She’s boring. It’s all so fucking boring.
So instead of wasting any more time on this absolute garbage, here’s the plot synopsis for the 1997 comedy classic Liar Liar, as best as I can remember it. Enjoy.
Fletcher Reede (Jim Carrey) is a fast-talking, hyper-ambitious defence attorney with big career goals and a loose relationship with the truth. He has no problem saying and doing whatever it takes as long as it gets him the win in the courtroom, no matter who the client may be.
But his habitual lying gets him into trouble when he breaks one too many promises to his young son Max (Justin Cooper), who makes a heartbroken birthday wish that, for just 24 hours, his Dad could tell no lies.
Amazed to find that he can now only speak the truth, Fletcher must embark on a wild day, navigating the biggest case of his career while attempting to rebuild his relationship with his son and estranged wife Audrey (Maura Tierney) before they pack up and move to Boston with Audrey’s boyfriend Jerry (Cary Elwes), a man who ostensibly has done nothing wrong and whose life is destroyed and treated as little more than collateral damage on Fletcher’s road to redemption.
A story of rampant male greed and the amount of bullshit that women will forgive whenever a guy makes the barest of bare minimum efforts, Imagine Entertainment presents Liar Liar: A film that Jim Carrey goes absolutely berserk in for 86 straight minutes.
I think that’s about right.
