Reason #90 to Despise Hulk Hogan

The fact that Hulk Hogan's "Real American" persona -- perhaps best encapsulated by this video produced for the purposes of indoctrinating a generation of suggestible youngsters into instinctively associating the Hulkster with concepts like "patriotism," "freedom," "liberty," "guitar shredding," and "arbitrary and gratuitous muscle flexing" -- was both the motivation and template for the stars-n-stripes zubaz wearing, make a wish fulfilling, barnstorming road trip across this country's dilapidated interstate highway system Adonis-like character featured above.

I mainly despise Hulk Hogan for Reason #91- Promising incredible Hulkster(tm) footage to all us 'Manioids and then pullin' the 'ol switcherooney with pugily-faced faux-hawked T.P. The T.P. Can this episode really be considered a Reason unto itself?

Reason #90 to despise Hulk Hogan is not just for the his "Real American" persona, but for the fact that said persona was the template for that lackluster Lex Luger babyface run in 1994, a montage of which is embedded in the clip above.

That's the point I was trying to get across.

Not all of my blog posts can be worthy of Facebustery consideration!
