You know what's interesting about all that, oink, and why it's ironic that I used Tom Cruise for contrast. It's because I was just watching NBC's Dateline. And at the end of tonight's episode they promoed an upcoming episode. And gave us the impression that it's about Tom Cruise and apparently we aint seen nothing yet. It's supposed to reveal that Tom Cruise is apparently even a lot more looney tunes than we even imagined if that's even possible.
The point being that while Cruise' Mission Impossible persona may have a mind like a steel trap and a life to match, that what we're really seeing is a human being with a mind far more f'ed up than anything portrayed in Weather Man.
So while Mission Impossible may be escaping us from those real life warts, it seems that it's doing it with smoke and mirrors which are hiding warts which are about as big as frisbees.
What I've always wondered about is whether warts hurt less when you got millions of bucks to soothe their pain with. Or whether instead having your warts shown all over television makes them hurt even worse.
