not a tumor
Just before going to bed last night, I flipped through the channels and landed on VH1. “Popumentary: Arnold Schwarzenegger” was on.

I watched only three minutes of it. It was enough to let me know that it was the God-awfulest crap ever made. Ever.

What I saw:

Arnold (played by a guy who barely resembles the real deal, although he does sound a lot like him) arriving in America, circa 1968. He’s training in a gym, getting cussed out by his trainer. He poses in front of a mirror, when his trainer brings in some guy to meet him. Arnold offers his hand in greeting, it’s refused. Arnold says, “Too bad, you just passed up a chance to shake hands with the next Mr. Universe.” The guy says, “Mr. Universe, huh? Well, you look like a fat piece of crap to me.”

Just then, the picture freeze-frames, and VH1 throws up a “Pop-Up Video”-style graphic that says the following: “Actual quote was, ‘piece of @#$%!’, but because we’re VH1, we can’t allow that.”

With that, I turned the TV off and hit the sheets.
