"Whatever became of your lambs, Clarice"
« on: April 01, 2024, 08:32:19 AM »
"Whatever became of your lambs, Clarice" an elderly Bono addressed a crowd of tens of fans and media personalities holding an Easter vigil outside of the fortress of the Irish superstar.  The adoring fans have been camped outside of the fortress for days to hear the prophet Bono's Easter remarks (National Transgender Day of Visibility - USA).

Rumor has it that Bono is just the latest in a long line of Hollywood elites and international celebrities who have recently awaken from a sinister Thugee death cult.  Bono was said to have been under the spell of the Thugee death cult since the late 1990's,  however some have suggested he might have been involved much earlier. 

"FEED THEM TO THE PIGS - ALL OF THEM!"  Bono exclaimed from his 3rd story balcony window while holding up his trademark peace sign.  The bespectacled pop star then turned to his aides and demanded they clear his schedule,  while putting on a bowling hat,  and added "I'm having an old friend for dinner"

He slipped out behind the gardens of his mansion and through the back gate of the fortress and proceeded to walk the streets of Dublin,  wearing a scarlet wig and a tropical leisure suit,  completely unnoticed amongst the common folks,  as the credits rolled on his lengthy career as world renowned popstar and media mogul.

Have the lambs stopped screaming, Clarice?

On a more appreciative note, the long closing shot that runs into and all through the closing credits of The Silence Of The Lambs, must be one of the all time great cinema moments.

Bono was told that he was allowed to bring followers to the Lambeth Conference.

The film is a masterpiece from start to finish.  I did watch it the other evening,  and interestingly enough i watched the credits roll to the end as if there would be some other outcome but we know there isn't.  What we do know is that Dr Chilton is quite satisfyingly going to have a very bad day in the near future - and apparently we are fine watching the activity on the street slowly unfold from a distance like a dream sequence - the impending doom blowing around in the breeze.

I would also have been satisfied if this was our last ever encounter with Dr. Hannibal Lecter.  My imagination could probably come up with various outcomes for his character- all of which he is never captured or heard from again - yet somewhere in the depths of your mind you know he is still out there.

Bono, here with the Holy Lamb of God.

Before the cock crows, they will have denied him three times.

Yeah, I think the other Lecter movies were a mistake for the most part (even if they were not technically sequels in Hollywood-speak; all were adaptations of other Thomas Harris novels involving the character).  Certainly none were on the same level, as films.

Bono is Illuminati. Hannibal Lecter is real. The lambs are still screaming.
