Bill O’Reilly: Comedy Genius

Fritz subscribes to “The Factor File: The Official Newsletter of BillOReilly.com,” and he occasionally forwards them to me when there’s something particularly hilarious. Today, Fritz noticed Bill’s started sending a “Word of the Week.”

That’s right. Myrmidon: A faithful follower who follows commands without questioning them.

I don’t know what’s making me laugh harder – that “myrmidon” was chosen as the word of the week in the first place, or the supposition that the slack-jawed gits who subscribe to “The Factor File” not for laughs are actually going to incorporate “myrmidon” into their monosyllabic vocabularies.

The best part, however, is the use of myrmidon in a sentence…

So true, Bill. So true.

[Transcript: The “shut up” line has happened only once in six years … Shut up! … Shut up! … Shut up about sex! … QUIET. Listen – cut his mike! … Shut up! You had your thirty-five minutes. SHUT. UP. … It is our duty as loyal Americans to shut up … and shut up publicly. … We expect every American to support our military, and, if they can’t do that, to shut up. … You keep your mouth shut!]

    I can never get my head around the brazenness of Bill’s lies. It’s on a different order of magnitude to the likes of Hannity or Coulter or even Bush. It seems pathological, an automatic reflex that he isn’t even aware of. His personality seems to have been taken over by the blustering blowhard side of him and there’s nothing else left.

  4. Bill [SHUT UP] O’Reilly needs [SHUT UP] to be [SHUT UP] taken out [SHUT UP] to the [SHUT UP] woodshed for a [SHUT UP] ‘talking to’ [SHUT UP, SHUT UP, SHUT UP, SHUT UP].

    (Plus, his pronunciation is incorrect. It’s MUR-mi-don, not MUR-muh-don.)

  5. …gits who subscribe to “The Factor File” not for laughs are actually going to incorporate “myrmidon” into their monosyllabic vocabularies.

    Myrmidon?

    Sounds like someone finally got the Alexander/Troy gift set in the mail.

  7. *lol* the day you use “O’Reilly” and “genius” in the same sentence is the day I faint clear away…

    myrmidons… HIGH-larious.

  8. This is very, very good.

    I’m sure the word came up because it’s what every one of Bill’s fans is.

  9. He is trying to copy Colbert’s word of the day…

  10. That is too good! Ha!

    It’s when something like that happens when I wonder if there is someone working “on the inside” so to speak. Trying to bring him down from within!

  11. There only problem here is that O’Reilly doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of the word, or even how it is used in the sentence example. At least with Colbert’s Word of the Day, you know that Colbert is using the Word of the Day in a cynical, sarcastic humor. Does O’Reilly even understand such humor?

    Funnier’n S#!T! I just laughed so hard that I think I just bloviated in my pants. I also love the fact that his webmaster misaligned the banner, and the repeat of the top of Bill-o’s head at the bottom resembles a steaming pile of doo-doo….explains the pinched look on the Giant Head’s mug.

    LOL!

    I totally thought the same thing. “I know it’s the top of his head, but damn if that doesn’t look like a pile of crap!”

    Looks like Bilious:

    a) …just Donohued.

    b) Or maybe he just said something and it landed on the desk in front of him.

    c) Or maybe it’s his head.

    d) All of the above.

  16. TheCunningRunt

    Myr-mi-don
    n.

    1. A lower form of primate once thought to be extinct, now apparently making a come-back in parts of North America, particularly in the American South and Mid-West. Examples of the genus have been captured and are presently being displayed by the Fox Television Network under the heading of “journalists.”

    2. Colloquially, a “Ditto-head.”

    O’No!!y’s Jactor Pile is such a waste of bandwidth.

  18. O’Reilly is a former history major. So, he’s probably been using this obscure term since he was a undergrad. Imagine him using it to impress a stuck up sorority girl at a party.

    Here’s additional info.

    Myr·mi·don [múrmi dòn, múrmid’n]
    (plural Myr·mi·dons)
    noun
    member of people led by Achilles: in Greek mythology, a member of a people who lived in Thessaly and were led by Achilles in the Trojan War

  19. My first thought was, “He must have seen the movie ‘300’”.
