Punching Matthew McConaughey in the face

Sometimes I dream about an actor/actress I like, sometimes I dream about one I can't stand. A few nights ago I dreamt of one of my least liked--Matthew McConaughey. Believe me, had I been controlling the dream I'd have put someone other than him in it. There's a lot to dislike about the guy--he can't act, he's had a hair transplant or on Rogaine or something to reverse his receding hairline, he's always flashing the damned hook 'em horns sign (I'm from Oklahoma, born and bred, went to Univ. of Oklahoma, so, you might as well be peeing on my leg with that stupid horn sign).

So, you can imagine my subconscious horror when I found McConaughey in my dream, right up in my face flashing me that damned hook 'em horns sign! The good part is it was a dream and I cold-cocked the guy and sent him down to the ground. What fun it was too let me tell you as what could have been a horrible dream turned into something special I'll have forever: getting to punch Matthew McConaughey right in the face.

We should all be as lucky getting to knockout someone we loathe in dreamland. Makes me think of a good question for anyone reading this: who would you like to punch out in a dream from the film world? Come on, let your inner urges out in the comment box.

i had a guy in mind, a while back.. i'll let you know as soon as i remember. also, remember dn't get mad when you see J-Pop's attire in my recent blog entries. he doesn't even know what the horn hook thing means. to him, and the rest of the world, TEXAS = COWBOY. is he too off course?

for one, I'd love to punch Steven Seagal in the face. not early steven seagal (out for justice, marked for death), but definitely late SS.

Replicant said...

heck, i've got a few i'd like to punch out...but i'll put tom cruise up there too.

why do his films make so much money if people want to punch him out and he's in a sci fi quasi-cult?

Xtine said...

Rachel Weisz.

I'm in a sci-fi quasi-modo film and nobody better be trying to punch me.

I would like to punch out John Wayne. I loved the guy but anyone that old couldn't be that tough. Same with Clint Eastwood. He may shoot you but he had no muscles.

I would like to punch John Travolta. He has always got on my nerves. Liked him when he was Vinny Boborino but after that he has always go to me. Too much Grease in him. Not into tough guys who like to dance. Patrick Swayze is about the same. Give me a kung fu guy or John Wayne any day.

i would love to punch rob schneider in the face and take him out. not only is he not funny, he's got that look that he's always got lewd thoughts preoccupying his tiny little head. i have on excellent authority (ex-pr person who had to drag him around san fran and then pay for his hotel bills..)that he is one sick puppy when it comes to copious amounts of hotel porn! friend also said he was rude, had attitude, was disheveled and unorganized, blah, blah...BAM! POW!

2nd would be michelle rodriguez b'c i'd read once an interview where she defended her right to wear fur, b'c well...she could, that the animals had nothing to do with her...that she had the right....BAM! POW! plus, one of her first things was that boxing movie "girlfight"...so punching her would be extra-satisfying...miss tough girl look out!

uncle joe said...

Okay, I'll punch Rachel Weisz with my lips.
