May I suggest that the careersuicide tag, introduced today by jonson, has tremendous potential? For example, Ted Haggard, John Kerry, Mel Gibson, George Allen ....

Mel Gibson had a career crucifixion.

yeah but the trouble with crucifying your own career is you can never get that last nail in...

Wow! What a stupid thread that is!

Good tag to keep in mind. I'll have to argue about its application to Kerry though. Any others?

Two weeks ago, I'd have said Trent Lott, but he is apparently now one for the careerresurrection tag.

Mine choked on someone else's.

Glad we could share this gag, Jon.

Yes, but I don't think we should be too hard on you about that. I mean, everybody's had thoughts about choking on vomit, neh? Let who is without regurgoasphxiatory baggage blow the first chunk, as it were.

Agreed.

Skimming over this, I first read "Kerry" as "Kelly", and yeah, R. Kelly might be appropriate here.
posted by Greg Nog at 6:08 PM on November 20, 2006


Kerry may not have been careersuicide, but at least careerselfmutilation, another useful category. Kerry trying to tell a joke is always a big mistake. And I'm one who considered the "Infamous Dean Scream" and its reaction murder and not suicide.

One cool thing about hanging out on MUSHes is that you can /gag specfific people from time to time, without having to exclude everyone.

Regarding K-Fed, you have to have a career before you can kill it.
posted by bob sarabia at 8:32 PM on November 20, 2006


Guys, leave the k-fed alone...he's been to places that most of us can only dream about, if you know what I mean.
posted by ashbury at 8:52 PM on November 20, 2006


Careerseppuku, for those rare instances when someone takes the graceful way out?

Like that's going to get posted here.

If by that you mean, "cleaning the toilets in a Stuckeys" then true-dat.

If you mean, "all up-amongst Brit's naughty bits" I'm sure we'll have plenty of opportunities to experience that once the many, MANY photos and videos come out over the next few years.

I was going to suggest careerstillborn for K-Fed.

I'm still mad no one's followed up on my generous contribution of the "mothafuckin'" tag.

Don't feel bad, XQ, no one else has taken to my personal favorite tag either.

It always warms my heart to see the batshitinsane tag is thriving.
