    ironic since he ran on the issue of closing gitmo in 2008

       Will Smith ran for office in 2008??

      • Conan Librarian says:

        Yes, but he had to drop out of the race to save the Earth from alien invasion.

           No, that was McCain.  And he stayed in.

          Will Smith borrowed a time traveling humanoid robot from the MIB archives (on loan from Dr. Who, who no longer needed it after getting killed in Utah).  He quickly shrank himself in order to pilot the robot back to Hawaii.  There, he forged a birth certificate, and (using his knowledge of future events) positioned himself for a 2008 run for president.  He won and would have become president, but was secretly replaced by a miniature Dick Cheney in Dec 2008.

          Which is why Gitmo is still open.

          Duh!  Everyone knows that.

    As many of them didn’t hate us before, but have grown over time to hate us… I’m thinking this is just the cherry on top.

    Fresh Prince is good stuff, there’s plenty worse they could be watching.

    I think it’s because they can all relate to the first two lines of the theme tune.

    Wow, we’ve really broken their spirits if they are requesting to watch cheezy 80′s/90′s sitcoms.  I think we can let them out now.

      It would be much more disconcerting if they were requesting things like:
      “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”.
      “Cupcake Wars”.
      “Deal Or No Deal” reruns.

    They neglect to mention that it is, of course, viewed with eyelids clamped open and the volume at 11.

    Kinda reminds me how Buddhist monks love watching Star Trek TOS.
    Easy to visualize the monks sitting and smiling while Spock mind-melds with Chekov and chants “The bullets… are in your mind.  They are not real.  They are figments of your imagination, they cannot harm you…”

    They can send them reruns of the Fresh Prince but they can’t send them a trial date.

    America’s gulag.

    I might be ok with torture now…
