talking out your ass

California finally passed its vaccine bill, removing most religious and personal belief exemptions for vaccination in public schools (almost as if contagious diseases really don’t care if you don’t “believe” in them). Yay for California! But oh no, what is that sound off in the distance? It sounds like a slow leaking fart bursting through a pair of flannel stretch pants. In Canadian!

Oh no wait, sorry, it’s just Jim Carrey. And he has a MAAAAAAD about vaccines.

As soon as Gov. Brown signed the bill, Carrey launched into a blistering meltdown all over the Twitter machine, twatting left and twatting right, all about what a fascist this hotshot governor is, just because he wants to keep childrens from dying. You know who else didn’t like dead children? HITLER. (Wait, bad analogy.)

Among Carrey’s choicer tweets were this gem:

carreytweet1

Except the vaccines aren’t manditory [sic]. They’re required for your brat if you want the screaming pukeball to go to public school. Don’t want to save your munchkin from preventable diseases? Go to private school or homeschool. OH THE OPPRESSION.

Carrey went off on a rampage asking for “greener vaccines” which somehow sounds gross. Doesn’t that sound gross? Carrey’s major contention was with thimerisol in vaccines, a mercury-based preservative that anti-vaxxers think causes autism (along with just about everything).

carreytweet2

Problem is thimerisol was removed from vaccines back in the nineties. Oopsie! There’s also the fact that there’s no connection between autism and mercury, seeing as autism diagnosis rates continued to go up even after thimerisol was phased out of vaccines.

Ace Ventura started waxing about the plights of children affected by the autisms, and decided the best way to do that was to post pictures of other people’s kids with autism. Who could possibly be offended?

Maybe the parents of the child Carrey posted, who are throwing a massive shitstorm over his dragging their babe onto his whackadoo soapbox. It’s almost like people are defensive about their kids being used unwittingly for political purposes. Clearly they didn’t go to the Fartknocker School of the Grifting Arts. You can get your Master’s in Child Puppetry in only 4 months!

The parents in question are understandably pissed that a man who used to talk through his anus for a living is accusing them of poisoning their child, especially since they know for a fact his autism didn’t come from vaccines; it’s from tuberous sclerosis, an actual brain condition with an actual connection to autism. Dammit, why aren’t these children and their brain tumors playing along with a celebrity Twitter rampage?

In fairness, Carrey apologized to the parents, but Jesus dude. Still not cool. It also doesn’t help that Carrey’s crusade has found new life thanks to a slew of failed stars joining his cause, including such big names as Roseanne Barr! And Robert Kennedy Jr.! Being in such illustrious company with failed presidential candidates such as these must mean Carrey’s career is following exactly the trajectory we knew it would. Hopefully next time, instead of dragging other people’s kids into a fight they didn’t pick, he’ll do a buddy comedy with Herman Cain and Ross Perot.

        I doubt it.

  • Better ten thousand children die of an easily preventable disease than one screaming howler monkey in your head be silenced, eh, Jim?

  • VandeGraf

    Carrey is just mad because he’s talentless. Rich, but talentless. The people he duped into watching his movies were slow studies, but did eventually figure it out. Can they sue him for their embarrassment?

    • MrCanoehead

      Jim Carrey is not talentless. He’s a remarkably talented impressionist and physical comedian.
      He is, however, dumb as a sack of hammers and tacky as a strip of flypaper.

      • bobbert

        Actually, in addition to what you say, he’s always struck me as being quite bright. On this matter, however, he is A Idiot.

          • mtn_philosoph

            I like Jim Carrey and I am a fan of his work. On this issue he is wrong, so very, very wrong. What a loss to spend that much time with someone, only to find out that he’s a vaxxer. Constantly tweeting isn’t necessarily communicating. I mean, Bruce Almighty, Jim, get a clue!

  • SnarkOff

    Since Jim Carrey has decided he’s a public health expert, I would like to suggest that Dr. Tom Frieden, Director of the CDC, replace Carrey as the star of the forthcoming film “The Bad Batch.” It’s only fair.

      Man, have you seen Dr Tom’s three minute standup? Dude kills with the epidemiology jokes. And Bill Gates’ malaria mosquitoes.

  • marxalot

    You know what all those fading b-listers have in common? Yup, bet they’re all vaccinated. With pre-90s vaccines. So I guess that means all this anti-vaxxer stuff is just a fit of poorly-socialized autistic rage? Give ’em a cookie and a new book about zeppelins, that always worked with my brother.

      Woulda worked for me too.

          Yes. But then, that was a Peter Weir movie. I credit the director rather than the star.

        • Biff52

          He was the first actor whose films I boycotted, so I haven’t, and won’t, see anything of his beyond In Living Color.

  • I hope Carrey gets a question about vaccines when he’s one of the squares on Hollywood Squares 2025.

  • Mehmeisterjr

    [Sigh] OK, one more time, as briefly as possible.

    Hello, celebrities. You may be good at what you do or you may be somebody’s kid or you may be a lady who showed the whole wide world her pussy 22 years ago. You are not medical doctors or scientists of any kind. So here are a few basic facts about which there is no question except among ignorant, deluded assholes, some of whom are celebrities and all of whom should know better:

    1. Measles is a dangerous, highly contagious disease.
    2. Measles is preventable by a vaccine that does not cause autism.
    3. Only a very small percentage of the population cannot take the vaccine for medical reasons.
    4. In order for herd immunity to protect that small percentage, everybody else has a moral obligation to get the vaccine that does not cause autism and to ensure that their children get the vaccine (which, BTW, does not cause autism.)
    5. If you get measles, a preventable disease, you get very sick in ways that can cause permanent damage.
    6. If you get measles, a preventable disease, you can get encephalitis, a horrifying disease that will , option a, most likely kill you. If it doesn’t kill you, you stand an excellent chance of being, option b, permanently mentally disabled. If you are neither dead nor permanently mentally disabled, you will be among the lucky minority to, option c, suffer endless other medical complications and your family, who loves you, will suffer seeing you suffer.
    7. Step 6 happened to my brother before the vaccine, which does not cause autism, was invented. Fortunately, he drew option c. Nevertheless, I do not want this to happen to anybody and it doesn’t have to happen if clueless dipshits and especially clueless celebrity dipshits will face reality.

    Any questions?

    • natoslug

      Yes. Can you have that printed in reverse on the waffled part of a framing hammer? The only way the people who need to read that are going to read that it is if it is firmly imprinted on their foreheads.

      • Mehmeisterjr

        Fortunately, we don’t even have to add the proviso “with votes” because California just did it with votes. This is how government is supposed to work.

    • cleanfront

      My 2 year old got in trouble for measles.
      Not having it, but saying it.
      She goes to a Methodist preschool because it’s close and well run. They apparently sing a few happy Jesus tunes. She calls him ‘Jeezls’. At home we started singing a tune about ‘Jeezls got the measles cuz he didn’t get the shot.’

      The school was mellow in their Methodist way, but didn’t think it was cool for the other kids. I refrained from suggesting a tetanus shot may have also been a game changer for ol’ Jeezls.

      • SecludedCompound

        Jeezls, that’s funny.

  • chicken thief

    The most shocking part of this, to me, is that Jim Carrey has followers on twitter.

    • Tansy Geek

      Or that people continue to let him make movies.

  • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

    I wonder if he ever looks in the mirror and says “Jeezus, I am fucking stupid.”

  • Relativicus

    I believe the reason for the increased incidence of autism in this country is the direct result of having so many people whose livelihoods rely on the incidence of autism diagnoses increasing. Just in the last year or two, those commercials that begin with examples like “the percent chance your child will become a professional athlete is…”, and end by giving the percent chance the child will be diagnosed autistic, have gone from a 1 in 100 chance of being diagnosed with autism, to 1 in 68.

    What has caused that astounding increase in the number of autism diagnoses? Is it because of mercury, or the lack thereof? Is it due to fluoridation, or gay marriage, or people literally speaking from their butts? Or might it be due to a classification system that has evolved to become a “spectrum” whereby almost any behavioral issue can be directly attributed to being “autistic”?

    • Angry_Cop

      Your first sentence is the very core of the “issue”.

    • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

      Excellent point. When I was in first grade I used to write backwards sometimes. No biggie, I just couldn’t remember which way to go, and once I got started in the right direction, it was cool.

      Can you imagine the diagnosis I would have gotten today?

      It’s like “Your snowflake has attention deficit disorder.” No he doesn’t, he’s just a fucking brat.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Spot on, the widening of the spectrum to include other disorders has certainly lead to that increase. Which is odd because many of the issues on the spectrum really don’t relate to each other in any other way except that they are on that spectrum, and that many of them have to do with social behaviors

      • dshwa

        That’s a core problem for us in psych though. There’s just so little objective data. fMRI, PET scans etc. are too expensive and unavailable to get any objective data in all but a few patients in studies. So we’re forced to rely

        • Axomamma

          My guess is that one reason for the increase in autism diagnoses is simply better understanding and recognition of the disorder. There are many adults who have never been diagnosed because, bizarrely, all the attention is focused on young children, as if autism is something you grow out of.

          • dshwa

            I suspect that this is definitely one of the reasons.

    • SnarkTank

      Big Pharma (and getting bigger everyday) is running out of diseases to scare the adults with, and the funding and profit potential for scaring parents is YOOOOGE. So they spectrumize everything, and sell more Ritalin and other kiddie candyceuticals to the suddenly terrified soccer moms/dads. My own dad would basically have told me to shut my piehole, rub dirt in it and take a lap.

      • Tansy Geek

        I read that too fast and got “my dad would have told me to go take a dirt nap.”

      • SpideySenser

        Seriously, I have too many acquaintances who will spend a perfectly pleasant dinner party talking about all the meds their kids are on and all the disorders they have and where they land on “the spectrum” and how the school systems are useless to help with all their learning disabilities. Apparently if your kid is normal it is abnormal. My sympathies to those who have a very real issue, I appreciate how lucky we are, but this behaviour seems somewhat Munchhausen.

        • SecludedCompound

          This is my thing: it seems like this has become some kind of yuppie badge of honor (not speaking of your friends, sorry). If we can all talk about how little Cayden and Bella need so many medications, we can emphasize how much adversity they’re overcoming, and therefore what great parents we are.

          It’s all one giant ego stroke. But hey, good thing we’ve got a bunch of medicated kids running around. Haven’t seen that reach out and touch society recently, have we? Ugh.

          • SpideySenser

            BINGO!

    • jodyleek

      The reason for the increase is more likely due to the advanced age of first-time parenthood. There would exceptions to that rule, as with any malady. My son is on the so-called spectrum. My husband and I have only the one child, so we didn’t see that his behavior was outside the norm. But everyone else in our family certainly saw it before we ever took him for evaluation. Two medical professionals (outside the group you would consider dependent upon diagnosing children with autism) saw his non-typical behavior as well.
      My son is completely up to date with all of his vaccinations. He eats all kinds of gluten and lactose. I would dream of subjecting him to the quackery of chelation and all that nonsense. I don’t know exactly the mechanism that caused his autism, other than that his parent were both in their late 30’s when he was conceived, but it doesn’t really matter. If you spent even five minutes with him you’d see that he’s not like most kids. Really, really not like most kids. And because he is not like most kids he has difficulty in school, difficulty in almost all social situations, difficulty remembering and performing simple tasks. Difficulty with seemingly innocuous sensations, like the noise from a restroom hand dryer or a barking dog. For him, those noises are physically painful. He excels in many areas, is precociously artistic and verbal, has a 125+ IQ, but he’s ten years old and can’t tie his own shoes or ride a bike despite our (and his) valiant efforts.
      I find it disheartening that a group of staunchly liberal thinkers (a group that I proudly consider myself to be a part) would think it is clever and amusing to suggest that a family with an autistic child should just get over it or rub some dirt on it and walk it off. We’ve tried that; it doesn’t work. It’s heartbreaking for me as a parent, who will someday die and leave my solitary son to fend for himself, to anticipate his fate. From the comments of the others within this part of the thread, it seems that none of you have a child on the autism spectrum. I agree that we shouldn’t bend to the will of those who seek to cloud the issue with some imagined reason for the increase in autism diagnoses. Unless you know the plight of a family affected by an autism diagnosis, I kindly ask that your snark be reserved for some other more deserving target.

      • Tansy Geek

        I don’t believe Relativitacus is mocking people who are severely affect by autism. More like the folks, myself mostly like included who are a little “off” years ago, we were told to “suck it up” and “knock it off” and “if you can’t act normal, then kindly STFU.” Only in nicer ways, sometimes. Years ago, your child would have been labeled mentally retarded and it wouldn’t have changed the heartbreak of watching him struggle with an untreatable organic disorder. I don’t know, maybe Relaviticus father would have told him those things if he showed signs of being like Jim Carrey.

        • jodyleek

          Profoundly affected? I know kids who only walk on tip toe, wear diapers into their teens and are completely non-verbal. I consider ourselves lucky. I understand that some may disagree with the autism diagnosis being applied to a seemingly ever expanding group. I would counter that the label “autism” is preferential and more accurate than “mental retardation” and certainly more humane than the labels given to social misfits years ago in the form of childhood taunts and whispered insults, like “freak”, “weirdo” and “retard”. I am actually rather thankful that their is some sort of medical label rather than a societal label for my son’s behavioral problems, even though it may not be specific to his particular set of difficulties.

          • Tansy Geek

            That sort of the point I was trying to make. What was generically labeled as retardation is now broken down into chromosomally abnormalities, fetal alcohol syndrome, anoxic brain injury and more. And as someone who is only slightly “off” I heard the “freak” and “weirdo” too. Hell, if a kid is in anyway different from even some of her peers, those words will be thrown about whether or not she has a medically or psychiatrically diagnosed disorder. I’m wandering off topic, so I’ll just say if you haven’t already read anything by or about Temple Grandin, I hear she’s got some good things to say about how she dealt ( deals) with her autism.

      • Relativicus

        The problem with your reply as I see it is I made a general statement about my belief as to the cause of the horrendous rise in the diagnosis of autism that you took as a slant against your family, specifically. And I never claimed autism does not exist. However, I do claim that, in my uneducated opinion, the diagnosis of autism not only covers true cases of autism, but cases of so-called behavioral issues the causes of which can be traced to reasons outside of autism. Particularly in the home. Not every shy or hyperactive child, or any in between, is the result of an affliction along the spectrum, but they sure seem to be treated as such.

        • jodyleek

          Just like I’m sensitive to the uneducated opinions of washed up celebrities, I’m sensitive to the uneducated opinions of my fellow snark-mates. I don’t consider that a problem any more than you might consider it a problem to counter the uneducated opinions of climate denier trolls, for instance. Let’s just say I’m not real keen on uneducated opinions in general regardless of the issue. That doesn’t mean I’m a killjoy and can’t find any humor in it all. The comment by Ilgattomorte up thread was hilarious.

    • TheBidenator

      Could it be increased chromosomal mutation/damage from proximity to industry passed down genetically from cohort to cohort? I read about a medical study that essentially stated cancer was non-existent before the advent of heavy industry….I wonder if breathing in all those PPM’s, the chemical tracers in drinking water and the soil, etc. might be causing increased rates of autism.

    • Blank Ron

      Reminds me about the ADD ‘epidemic’ of some years ago. All of a sudden every active child was diagnosed as having this Big Scary Disease and pumped full of Ritalin. The idea that maybe said child just enjoyed being active never seemed to penetrate anyone’s head.

      • BackDoorMan

        … or maybe said child lives in the fast-paced environment of today, bombarded with all manner of sensory stimuli – t.v., video games, the internet, smart phones, advertising, sports, school activities, social clubs, etc. – we live in a hyperactive world. I know ‘helicopter parents’ who panic if their child isn’t “doing something”. And they tend to overdo it if they think their precious snowflake might be bored. They aren’t helping.

  • Angry_Cop

    Most private schools won’t let you attend unless you’re 100% vaccinated as well, even though they have no requirement to do so. I wonder why that is?

    Also, fuck Jim Carrey, he’s not funny and never has been.

      • Jen_Baker_VA

        I like when they do that, makes it easier for us.

    • chicken thief

      Al Capone made a lot of money also too. He died of syphilis.

      • Relativicus

        Still, because of his money, Capone was able to read ‘All’ the literature, unlike this broke-ass writer.

        • So that is why Palin needs all the money…

          To finally read things.

          • Zippy

            AOT,K

          • Mehmeisterjr

            All of the literature, Katie, even.

      • joejoev1 .

        At least he didn’t die from vaccine injury, or worse having to live with it.You can try it, just go get your vaccines.

        • chicken thief

          Got ’em all! Always have. But thank you for your concern. BTW, the point was, since you missed it, that having money does not equal smart.

        • We all did. And we are all fine.

          That’s how vaccines work.

          • guppy06

            Speak for yourself, we’ve got a reactor leak up here!

        • janecita

          Fine, don’t vaccinate your own special snowflakes, just keep them lock away, in a basement somewhere, away from babies and kids with a compromised immune system. We don’t need your walking Petri dish loose among unaware people.

    • This comment is too dumb for deletion.

      It is even too dumb for a snarky rejoinder. It would be like punching a baby.

      • joejoev1 .

        Talk about ignorance.

        • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

          Go to the previous thread. Compare and contrast your brand of idiocy to the one on display there.

        • Why? Because of how you are an expert in the field?

      • guppy06

        Some might say that some (jerk) babies totally need punching……..

    • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

      I was an Air Force brat and an Air Force officer, and lived around the world. I have had every vaccine imaginable since childhood, including the series for weapons grade anthrax. And I am 100% normal — except for my irrational hatred of idiots such as yourself.

      • Bobwurst

        Very nice Grateful Dead allusion. Did you go to any of the shows?

        • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

          AOT, K!

      • Gleem-McShinez

        Irrational libel!

      • Blank Ron

        It’s okay, TT, your hatred is in fact perfectly rational.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      So because he made hundreds of millions we should listen to him?
      Does that mean you are voting for Trump or iJeb! ?

      Edit: OHHHH and if he is highly intelligent and can read all the research, tell me why he is still ranting about the mercury in vaccines that is no longer in vaccines?

    • Angry_Cop

      “Ignorant rant” – thanks for the warning, won’t read any further.

    • Biff52

      He got paid millions for acting like an idiot.

      • janecita

        Acting?

      Oh! I am exicyte. I thought I had arrived too late for teh trollz.
      Edit. Shit, I should have read the whole thing. Oh well, I still have to clean the litter box today so I’ll see the same sort of thing there.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      I guess “free thought expression” is the new freedom of speech. It’s oppression or something!!!!,11,1111!!!<11.

      P.S. Thanks, Shy.

    • Axomamma

      Oh, well, if joejoev1 isn’t going to grace us with his stunning insight there really is no point in hanging around this mommy blog what doesn’t allow comments. Since his absence dooms the joint, the few remaining should kick in $5 to tide the proprietors over so babby doesn’t starve.

    • guppy06

      I don’t come here for the expression of free thought so much as the expression of bodily fluids.

      I am somewhat comforted that this “rarely visited” site is sometimes visited by Rachel Madow (and/or her writing staff?) Quality over quantity, I always say.

  • Jen_Baker_VA

    You know what? Screw these anti vaxx idiots in the ear. All their already proven wrong horse shit keeps taking time, attention and money away from finding a REAL cause and actually helping kids.
    Also, too, my awesome nefew, who will likely never hold a job or get married or any of that stuff, at least will never get a fucking preventable disease and die from it or give it to someone else you assholes.
    Demmit, I tried not to get all mad about the thing but it really ticks me off.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      Yeah, I’m with you there. It is hard not to just throw furniture around the room in frustration.

      • Jen_Baker_VA

        I could do that, but I’d get all fired being at work as I am.
        Jen, why are you throwing that ergonomic chair through the plate glass window?
        Because I am mad about a thing, sir!
        Erm….yeah

        • janecita

          I’m home today, I will kick the couch, and throw some stuff around for you.

  • Lady Bug

    So where does this fall on the Victoria Jackson “Celeb” Scale of Crazy?

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      he’s still beneath her scale. He’s just an asshole who bought into some stupidity about this one thing (that I know of anyway). When he starts spouting off about all the conspiracies and such, then he can gain more V-Jack points

  • proudgrampa

    Obviously someone who gives a shit about “facts.”

  • Biff52

    I liked the guy on In Living Color, until he ran off the rails. Then Hollywood picked up on him and started paying him insane money to be A Idiot. When he got $20 million for a movie, I lost it and stopped going to movies altogether. I suppose I should thank him for that.

    • Zippy

      $20 million to play the weird, obnoxious guy making faces that nobody on the bus will sit next to- hell of a career

      • Biff52

        I’m not kidding that he caused me to stop going to movies. I never saw any of his, and the only one I’ve seen since he hit the big screen was “Rush”. Because Ron Howard. And Formula1.

    • guppy06

      Re: In Living Color, I’m thinking this may just be a case of early onset dementia causing him to revert to his earlier role as Health Inspector Bill.

    • Lord-Nash

      Trying to think, but in the 20 plus years since ILC, he’s only made two comedies I actually like and are still actually funny, Bruce Almighty and Liar Liar. Ace Ventura has some good gags, but it hasn’t aged along with my taste in comedy.

      Man on the Moon and Truman Show were good, I have to give him credit for those.

  • Ilgattomorte

    The obvious hack joke here would be to write a long-ish thought piece in a semi-serious, but sarcastic voice, that ends ultimately with a joke about how Autism is caused by Ace Ventura movies. Even though Jim Carrey deserves it I will not do that, not only because it is hack, but because it is wrong.

    Autism is caused by Rob Schnieder movies.

    • janecita

      Nope, it’s caused by Matthew Macconaughey movies.

      • Marc

        We should agree that it is caused by both Schneider and Macconaughey moves. There is also a strong causal link to anything that Lorne Michaels produces.

      • Ilgattomorte

        Stupid me! I thought McConaughey causes Herpes.

        • Tansy Geek

          I don’t know, I got diabetes after watching Instellar. Maybe that was all the love is better than science stuff though.

          • bobbert

            Actually, I kind of liked Interstellar, preposterous as it was. I was drunk, though.

        • janecita

          That too!

        • Gleem-McShinez

          Herpes is the one on your triple-x bits, right?
          I think Derpes is the one we’re concerned with.

      • Biff52

        All I’ve seen of his work is the Lincoln commercials, and the guy could be the cure for insomnia.

        • Tansy Geek

          Season One of True Detective completely changed my mind about him.

          • janecita

            I’d rather be waterboarded, than watch him once a week for a full hour.

        • janecita

          I don’t know why, but for some strange reason, I hate the guy with a passion. Yes, he is boring and one dimensional.

        • grmpy

          He was fantastic in Dazed and Confused but I don’t think he was really acting there. Mathew just being Mathew for the camera

      • toomanyrappers
        • janecita

          That’s pretty much the way I feel about that overrated idiot. I wanted to watch True Detective, didn’t watch it because he was in it. His Texas drawl reminds me of GWB.

          • cynmac

            Nope, GWB was worse because he has that awful “heh heh heh” laugh.

        • cynmac

          Had not seen this but it made me laff. Thx

      Adam Sandler Libel!!!

      • Ilgattomorte

        A friend of mine watched a Sandler marathon a while back and he’ll never be the same. The doctors say that his brain fell asleep and choked on its own vomit. He’s become a legume, it’s kind of like a vegetable, except he still responds to fart jokes.

        • janecita

          My mémé was French, and that’s what she would say my grandpa was like when he drank too much. “Il est un légume”

          • Ilgattomorte

            I love that! It’s so much cooler in French.

      • guppy06

        Sandler was moderately successful when dipping his toes in drama (I liked Spanglish, but I may be biased due to eye candy). I can’t think of anything non-goofy that Carrey has done, though.

        • TheBidenator

          The Majestic was really good, some people really like the Truman Show and the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind…Carrey has done better drama work than Adam Sandler, give the guy some credit FFS…he is better than Adam Sandler.

          • guppy06

            OK, you’re right, I totally forgot Truman and Eternal Sunshine.

          • bobbert

            It’s because you don’t think of them as “Jim Carrey movies”.

      • bobbert

        This is really impossible.

    • Tendernob

      Rob Schneider derp de derp. Derp de derpity derpy derp. Until one day, the derpa derpa derpaderp. Derp de derp. Da teedily dumb. From the creators of Der, and Tum Ta Tittaly Tum Ta Too, Rob Schneider is Da Derp Dee Derp Da Teetley Derpee Derpee Dumb. Rated PG-13.

        How dare you! “Joe Dirt” is a American classic along the lines of “Citizen Kane” or “Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens”

    Science, how the fuck does it work?

      Research goes in, theories come out. You can’t explain that.

      • Anarchy Pony

        Not without more research…

  • alhutch

    Carrey is a dope, but the new CA law does require vaccines for any child in child care, public or private school. No place for anti-vaxxers to hide their kids except in home school.

  • darnyoudarnyoutoheck

    I wish there was a way to make these pro-disease idiots experience a case of measles, or whooping cough. Not diphtheria though, that would be against the spirit of the commenting rules.

    • OneDemin EOr

      Mumps will do the trick. That shit will sterilize a male adult, so, yeah, that’s the definite upside.

    • grmpy

      They’re just hard core pro life. Mumps has the right to life, whooping cough, etc etc

  • Bitter Scribe

    I forget, is he still married to obnoxious walking rack Jenny McCarthy, another anti-vax nutbag?

    Sometimes I wonder what Jay Cutler thinks of his wife, Kristin Calliveri, keeping their kids from getting vaccinated. If he’s not anti-vax himself, I feel sorry for him. Of course I feel sorrier for the kids, who, in addition to having a reality-show airhead and a hate-magnet NFL quarterback for parents, must risk death from infectious disease.

    • OneDemin EOr

      Nah, they’re divorced and the vacuous bottle blonde has moved on to Donnie Wahlberg. Not much of an improvement, but Donnie Baby did manage to put her stupid ass to work; they have a (ugh) reality show on (double ugh) A&E. Where they are excellent company for Dumb Dynasty.

    • DL

      It’s also worth pointing out that McCarthy’s son was eventually discovered to not have autism, which is why he improved. He, instead, was diagnosed with Landau Kleffner syndrome which, though similar to some spectrums of autism, is not the same thing and a person can improve from it whereas autism is basically permanent. So, not only did he NOT get autism from vaccines (which is not possible anyway), but her bullshit anti-medical woo about how fruit juices and veggies “cured” her sons autism were also bullshit. Let’s us also not forget how, before autism even entered the picture, she was 100% certain that her son was an “indigo child” possessed by some new age spirit of something.

      • grmpy

        How she has not been sued for impersonating a doctor or giving out medical advice is a riddle I’ve yet to crack.

        • DL

          Because here in the US we have shit laws concerning health info as long as someone says they’re not an expert and their claims have not been verified by the FDA, they can pretty much get away with almost anything.

          • grmpy

            Is that real? Is that a thing? So I can perform surgery on someone as long as I’ve said I’ve never done this before? That is a terrible rule.

    If he doesn’t like what the American governor is doing in his American state, can’t Jim Carrey just self-deport? Donald Trump might even write him a (rubber) check for a plane ticket!

    Jim Carrey? Didn’t he make a career of playing crazy and/or stupid people? And here I thought it was acting.

  • guppy06

    “This vaccine is known to the State of California…”

  • Oh for pete’s sake! I assumed this was just BS he was just nodding his head with because he wanted to get into Jenny Mccarthy’s panties. Now comes the news that he believes this shit for real? Cripes!

    • grmpy

      Maybe he is trying to get back in. But yeah, I thought the same thing at the time.

  • Alex Grey

    Related.

  • Me not sure

    They can have my right to not vaccinate when they can pry it from my paralytic polio infected fingers (which shouldn’t be too hard)!

    I heard Jim Carrey knows what he’s talking about because: Vaccinations and Jim’s thought process and behavior of JimCarrey

  • Brianna Amoré

    Apparently Dumb & Dumberer 2 didn’t do so well, so Carrey is reduced to Twitter rantings. I guess his brand of humor doesn’t sell so well these days.
