Giving Long Island a Bad Name Again

I happened upon a local news channel because I wanted to see what was up with yet another nor'easter hitting our area, and lo and behold, look what the ocean regurgitated- there was Amy Fisher and Joey Buttafuocco (buttafucka) strolling through Port Jefferson, Long Island, then going to a restaurant for dinner with the TV cameras rolling. OMG. Just shoot me in the face.

It was the 15 anniversary of when Amy shot Mary Jo in the face (how lovely). Amy did 7 years of hard time in prison, then she had plastic surgery so that she wouldn't be so readily recognized, then she wrote a weekly column in the Long Island Press and she also got married, but is in the process of a divorce. Joey, the pseudo-macho, dick-headed, Long Island guido-type divorced Mary Jo, remarried and is in the process of divorce, had moved to California and got in all sorts of trouble with the law (surprise, surprise) while he was there. I don't know what he is doing back on Long Island. I wish he hadn't returned.

Supposedly some producer thought it would be fun to have a reality show with Amy and Joey. I wish they would do it in California if they feel the overwhelming need to do it. To this date, I have not watched the Long Island Lolita movies that all came out 15 years ago and I have frankly had it up to here with those 2 being on the telly ad nauseum until Bill Clinton's sex life took over the news.

Amy and Joey epitomized the ickiest type of Long Islanders, even more so than some of the Baldwin brothers, Lindsay Lohan, Howard Stern, Alfonse D'Amato, Rudy Giuliani, Rep. Peter King, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly. Oh and that character, what's her name, who got raped by Jim Bakker and then moved to the playboy mansion and had plastic surgery- Jessica Hahn. Remember her? ick.

There actually are some cool people from here like me, co-blogger, Billydoom (via Europe,) commenter IMSpartacus, Brian Setzer, Steve Vai, Lou Reed, Andy Kaufman, Joe Satriani, Eddie Murphy, Meadow from the Sopranos, Harry Chapin, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Walt Whitman, Twisted Sister (twistidsistuh), Teddy Roosevelt, Jackson Pollock, Mario Puzo, Nelson DeMille, LL Cool J, Flavor Flav, Mariah Carey, Ralph Macchio, Sarah Hughes, Chuck D, Francis Ford Coppola, Ben from Ben and Jerry's, Tony Danza, Alan King, Susan Lucci, Lorraine Bracco, Pat Benatar, Eddie Money, Rosie O'Donnell, Steve Buscemi, Billy Crystal, the girl from the Snapple commercials and the guy from 1-800-flowers (flowiz) and Billy Joel to name a few off the top of my head. Oh and the Amityville Horror House. Whew. Almost forgot our biggest claim to fame.
