George Clooney has made an offer few can refuse: He has placed himself up for adoption.
"I always wanted to be adopted, but I couldn't find anyone,"
said the star, speaking at a Newseum event in Washington, D.C., with
his father, former Ohio news anchor Nick Clooney, and veteran
journalist Bill Small on either side of him.
"Will you adopt me?" George said to Small. "I'm very wealthy. I'll take care of you."
Borrowing the eloquent catch phrase of S. Palin; “YOU BETCHA!”
It just shows that people who are not adopted or have someone as a close friend/family member who is do not see the stupidity of their comments.
I see two issues–one is the fact that he makes light of being adopted and two perpetuates the grateful adoptee mentality/expectation.
I know he was trying to be funny, but I just don’t find it so, no matter how cute he is.
Be still my beating heart. Of course!!
But wait–wouldn’t that make most of my thoughts incestuous?
