Comparing 80’s TV Stars to Presidential Assassins


I was about mid-way through my MacGyver, The Complete First Season box set, when I began to ask myself the same question we’ve no doubt all pondered since the show’s final episode in 1994: “What the hell happened to Richard Dean Anderson? Why has the world denied us that amazing mullet for so long?”


Then it hit me. Richard – Dean – Anderson. Three names. Lou – Diamond – Phillips. Three names again. Why do all these 80’s stars go by three names? Then I remembered that presidential assassins always have three names, like John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald.

This is about the point when I realized that Craig T Nelson is going to try to kill the president. It makes too much sense NOT to happen. Either him or Jan Michael Vincent. We’ll see. Just remember you heard it here first.
