Sean Spicer has already had quite the week. Between seemingly hiding in the bushes to avoid talking to reports (which, as a reminder, is his job) and having to explain what I view as insanity (which, again, is his job), it is safe to assume that Mr. Spicer is looking forward to the weekend. What could possibly bring him down?
Oh, right. Melissa McCarthy is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, isn't she?
McCarthy does a pretty spot-on Sean Spicer impression and there's no question that she'll be bringing that back this weekend. In fact, some Manhattanites have spotted her riding on character Sean Spicer's podium through the streets of New York for what is most likely a pre-recorded sketch that will air on Saturday.
Needless to say, I am curious. Is SNL's Sean Spicer on the run now?
Follow up, is the actual Sean Spicer on the run now? Wouldn't surprise me at this point. After all, who could blame him?
I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.
But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"?
No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!
There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
