Remember the “OptiGrab” from Steve Martin’s “The Jerk”? This woman’s glasses remind me of them.
Okay, I rarely ever poke fun at how people look or what they wear – except for trump. But I cannot help myself with this one. Via a tweet, I was directed to a post in the Kenosha News by a reporter, Erin Decker, who obviously is a trump-supporter as she praises trump’s response to COVID-19. When I saw this woman’s photo, I immediately thought of the “OptiGrab” which is what Navin, Steve Martin’s character in “The Jerk” created for a traveler who stopped at the gas station he worked at. Eventually, that traveler marketed Navin’s creation, eventually found Navin and made him a rich man – that is, until Carl Reiner’s character filed a lawsuit claiming the OptiGrab made his eyes cross.
I can’t help myself. Please forgive me.
(BTW… “The Jerk” is one of those classic comedies that always makes me laugh.)
Here is a part of the movie where Navin (Steve Martin) has met his demise…
