This is a true story. It is a true story that could only happen to someone with disability-level attention deficit.
Or maybe only someone with papers to prove he had this disability would ADMIT it happened to him.
One day I heard one of the most disgusting liberal diatribes I had ever heard coming from my bedroom TV set.
I went in there to turn it off and found that what I was hearing was on Turner Classic Movies. It was the spaceman from “The Day the Earth Stood Still.”
I first saw this movie when it came out about 1953.
Michael Rennie played the spaceman sent to earth because earth had developed atomic bombs and was therefore a threat to other planets. He was described in the movie as having a New England accent. With his super killer robot at his side, he told us that he did not care about our “petty internal disputes.”
He sounded exactly like Mommy Professor, putting all us here mortals in our place and dictating to us Little People from a rostrum of Interplanetary Wisdom.
I was only twelve, so I had no idea that the exact same preaching was at that moment being worshipped by the 50% of the Greatest Generation who took advantage of the GI Bill of Rights to be brainwashed by Mommy Professor.
So it was a natural mistake when I mistook the Space Prophet in full cry as a Mommy Professor.
