Hello 3.5 readers.
Anti-ugly discrimination activist Bookshelf Q. Battler here, continuing to spread the polite of ugly people everywhere.
Case in point. Did you know that Abe Vigoda died this week at the age of 94? It was a shock because most people thought he already died in 1995 at the age of 156.
God bless him though. He was funny, versatile, and he entertained many despite being so very, very ugly.
His big role was as elderly detective Phil Fish on Barney Miller. But he did have a pretty decent part in The Godfather as well.
Yes, Abe spent most of his life looking like a zombie only to get too old to play one once the zombie craze broke out in Hollywood in the past decade. Irony.
An old detective. An evil mafioso. Why wasn’t Abe ever offered the spot of leading man in a romantic comedy? Why? Just because he was so ugly that women wouldn’t have been into dreaming about being with him? Discrimination, I say.
Poor Abe. Died this week so young at 94, so young, never had a chance to experience all that life has to offer, and worse, never got the Oscar recognition he so richly deserved.
If you can think of an ugly actor or actress denied Oscar recognition for far too long, leave your suggestion in the comments.
Be strong, my ugly brothers and sisters. We’re here. We’re ugly. Get used to it.
