Why ruin a good name?


What a great name!

Of course, your mind naturally goes to two places: Jews and jeans.

Am I right or am I right?

You think, Levi's ... what a great brand of jeans founded many moons ago by the Jewish-German immigrant, Levi Strauss. He was, obviously, extremely successful in his business built in 1853 and created a product that most every American has owned at one time in his or her life.

Levi = Ambition, Success

The name "Levi" is also a good 'ol Jewish name. I even think of the Levites from the Bible ... the tribe descended from Levi, one of the sons of Jacob. This tribe of Levi was the only tribe to receive no land when the Israelites entered Canaan because "the Lord the God of Israel Himself is their inheritance." Hello. They were mostly priests and had the duties of collecting the tithes and taking care of the tabernacle and in the temples. They also served as teachers and judges.

You get my point? They were pretty important.

Levites = Responsibility, Spirituality, Servants of God

This guy right here ...

is really starting to get on my nerves.

He has ruined the good name of "Levi."

For any of you who don't know, this is Levi Johnston.

He is Bristol Palin's baby daddy.

He's fully taking advantage of his 15 minutes of fame by doggin' out the Palin family (who has been nothing but courteous and taken the higher road) on every talk show he can get a spot on.

Not only that, but posing for Playgirl because I guess that's what you do when you actually have no other skills, talent, or ambition.

And, wait, it gets better ... Donald Trump says Levi would be great on "The Celebrity Apprentice" ...

Uh ... Donald, the last time I checked, you had to be a celebrity to be on the "Celebrity Apprentice," hence the word "celebrity."

I don't count providing DNA to make a baby as being a celebrity. If that's the case, heck, I know a lot of celebrities.

And, Levi, as far as your acting career goes, why not go to college and get a job to support that baby of yours.

This video makes me want to vomit a little.

Go home, Levi. Go home.

OK, I'm done.

As soon as I saw "Levi", I immediately thought of him....ICKY!

Amy@My Front Porch said...

I knew where you were going with this the second you said "Levi". Dave and I were just talking about how annoying he is. Go home is right!

Lois Lane II said...

Ugh. I feel sorry for his child. =(

Rach@In His Hands said...

I'm with ya, ick! Such a bummer, too, since I adore the name Levi.

Sara said...

Yep, ruined a good name.

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

I'm with you!!! Some day his little child will grow up and there'll be written accounts of his actions! How awful to call him daddy.

Jeanette said...

I am blissfully unaware of his appearances! It does make me want to get ahold of that kid and tan his hide but good!!! (how is that for sounding like a good ole' southern mom?!) Unfortunately, instead of ignoring him, the media will keep picking up his "story" just to get back at the Palin family. Just makes my blood boil! I should probably finish cleaning the kitchen while I'm mad :}

BaronessBlack said...

There are some stories that never make it out of the US - apparently with good reason!
I have no idea who any of these people are!
And the video clips don't work over here, so I'll be staying blissfully ignorant!

Heather said...

Agree, agree, agree! He's repulsive. He's also very immature and clearly doesn't realize that his stupidity now will haunt him and his child forever. That's the part that I really hate the most - poor kid.

I didn't see it (not a talk show fan), but I heard that Sarah Palin was not exactly biting her tongue about him on Oprah, though. I understand it would be hard to do after a while, but I hate to see her do that too, again for the child's sake.

Found you via Soliloquy. :)

He makes me throw up a little in my mouth.

I only got two minutes into it and had to shut it off. What an idiot. His voice irritates me. And I also had the urge to vomit. I'm an Alaskan...please, don't send him back. Ever! He doesn't give a hoot about that kid...he just wants to be famous. (If he cared he wouldn't be talking to that idiot. How did Trump make millions because listening to him speak...he sounds like a moron). The bottom will fall out soon and it will be "Levi. Levi who?". Sarah's awesome...and so is her husband. 18 years ago my husband raced snowmachines against him in the Iron Dog and says he's a great guy.
