Your Worst Nightmare, Butthorn!

Gary Busey is.. BULLETPROOF. (SLYT) via everything is terrible

It's kind of like the plot of Red Dawn combined with the plot of Rambo combined with the plot of Dirty Harry. Only with way more cocaine. Bonus footage.

Also, a young Danny Trejo. IMDB.

Now, my question is: What exactly is a butt-horn, and how is it different from a butt trumpet?

The Butthorns would be a good band name actually.

How bad is your day when you know you've picked the wrong Gary Busey footage?

I am deeply offended, as I have a horn growing out of my butt (cornufundum cutaneum) and all my life I have had to put up with derogatory discrimination and piss-takery. I am going to write to Gary Busey (if that is his real name) and give him a piece of my mind. And a little flakey bit of my butt horn, sellotaped to the letter, so he gets cooties.

All this time, and I had no idea The Simpsons writers were referencing an actual movie when they had Ranier Wolfcastle play a character named McBain.

Gary Busey is also... The Gingerdead Man!

Acting career on the rocks or an avant-garde exploration of his craft? Why chose just one? After all, bad is never good until worse happens.

Gary Busey: serious business.

About the same time they repaired the windshield, I would guess.

Figuring that a shoehorn is used to stretch and hold the shape of a shoe, I imagine a butthorn would be a favorite tool of mr. goatse.

Ok Gary Busey does kick a lot of ass but did anyone try the other link? Seriously what the hell is yogi ogi dogi? Things like that should not be available in the mornings. I'm half asleep as it is and the thought of a rhasta crow will haunt me for the rest of my work day. BTW don't forget to breathe.

That was some machine gun fight there. To anyone who thinks GM can't make good cars, that sedan's windshield just took about 3 million rounds without splintering to pieces. Let's see a Prius do that.

I liked how he reloaded after taking two shots. "I'm so fucking badass, my revolver fires in THREE ROUND BURSTS!"

I also loved how the windshield magically repaired itself after the machine-gun montage and subsequent grenade launch retaliation AND SUPPLIED GARY BUSEY WITH A TOUGH NEW BLACK PARTNER!

I so hope the new Nissan Cube can do this.

Yes, the ability to generate an ethnic minority sidekick was one of the many little-known virtues of mid-80s GM sedans. My '86 Buick Century had a toggle switch that, when activated, triggered the spontaneous generation of a wise-cracking Chinese kid from San Francisco. Like all Chinese people, he knew karate!

Now I must go watch the clip again to see the regenerating windshield, which I somehow missed amid the onslaught of awesome in the clip.

The other cop was there to pick up Busey as he was running out of the warehouse. Notice that he quickly slides over so Busey can do the driving.

At the risk of disrupting the good guy/bad guy balance of power, I would like to offer the following advice to all of you bad guys out there. Throw those fucking useless AK-47's away and stick to handguns! Have you dumb fucks ever watched '24'? Jack Bauer can take out a whole shitpile of terrorists without reloading. Look at what happened with the machine gun sticking out of the back of the truck. Nothing. If they had a glock, Bussey's car would have been a ball of flames after one shot. If I don't see a major change in bad guy tactics in the next movie I see, I'm going to be pissed.

I think I might have written this script in the eighties when I was ten. My supercop was named "Max Factor" because I'd heard that name someplace and thought it was pretty sharp, but other than that this sounds exactly like one of my stories. I may have to sue.

Isn't the "wtf" tag redundant when following the "garybusey" tag?

Thank god there were crated shipments of Kevlar vests for Busy to take refuge behind. Otherwise all those 7.62mm rounds might have hurt him.

The rumor is that Busey's friends had a nickname for him: Gary Drug Abusey.

He may be bulletproof, but he is only moderately resistant to non–bullet-related brain injury.

Seriously, "butthorn" is the greatest thing I've heard all day. It got me thinking.
He could have used any of the following-
Butttrumpet
Assoboe
Asssax
Colontuba
Analharmonica
etc.

But BUTTHORN. That's classic.

Ok Gary Busey does kick a lot of ass but did anyone try the other link? Seriously what the hell is yogi ogi dogi? Things like that should not be available in the mornings.

I was wide awake, and a few seconds into the yogiogidogi...thing I was wondering if perhaps a classic mkultra-era CIA operative had secretly drugged me with an experimental hallucinogenic compound earlier, and it was now starting to really kick in.

By the end, I was no longer wondering. I knew.

The level of ongoing cheerfully stunned mindfuck made me strongly remember one time in college after some all-nighter spent cranking out a paper that I should have had completed long prior. Everything completed, and so tired I couldn't even sleep (things get weird past the, say, 30 hour mark), I flip on the television and start randomly going through channels. This leads me to discovering the "Xuxa" kids show. At the time, Xuxa was apparently a big star in kids TV in Brazil, and was attempting to enter the American market with...much less successful results, and to the extent any of my memory of that discovery is accurate, I am not at all surprised.

There was a soundstage with, by rough estimate, several hundred flailing screaming kids. Circling and circulating and, well, working that crowd were a cadre of maybe 13 year old girls in, I shit you not, the equivalent of Vegas showgirl outfits, maybe less skin but only in order to cram on more sequins. By working I mean akin to sheepdogs working a flock. The childrens' affect was not so much happy as terrified and putting on rictus-grins in order to not be beaten. This was understandable as the star of the show dances singing onto stage. Xuxa does not look happy either, but she doesn't look scared either. She looks pissed, in the surly dangerous cranky tired way that's wired right into any child's Give Mom Space warning system, only they can't give her space, the middle school showgirl herders won't let them give any space, they're trapped in this situation and it's horrible and it's only just beginning.

Games follow. The one I clearly remember, in the way you clearly remember particularly vivid flashes of a fever dream, is when select inwardly-terrified children were divided into teams and took turns wearing helmets with large plastic bowls affixed to the top, while their partner would stamp on one end of a seesaw in order to catapult (presumably) fake fish through the air, the goal being to land them in the helmet bowls. All the while, the crowd of fire code violating children are screaming and shrieking encouragement, driven on by their junior showgirl handlers, to "CATCH THE FISH! CATCH THE FISH" while Xuxa looks on with an expression that suggests the losers will be flayed.

I'm pretty sure I shut it off at that point.

Come to think of it, afterwards I also started managing time better in order to avoid all-nighters.

Back when I was doing interior trim carpentry for the rich and shamelessly self indulgent, my crew spent over a year trimming out a house for a butthorn who knew Gary Busey. While we were working on that house, the butthorn bought the Versace mansion in Miami, sponsored The Miss Hawaiian Tropic contest there and, “allegedly date raped” the unfortunate winner.

We never, ever worked overtime. Once he tried to get us to work on a Saturday by saying that Gary Busey would be there and we would probably get to look at him. But nobody went for it.

I read this and thought "Huh, I should see that", then I realized I *had* seen it. Twice. Yet I can't recall a single detail about it.

I can't help but think this was intended, a kind of self-nullifying experience that leads to repeat purchases.

More Busey. More cowbell. More Walken.

How awesome would that be?
