The Two Turtles From the film ‘Rocky’ Are Now 44 Years Old: Cuff & Link still live with the Italian Stallion
Cuff and Link have turned forty-four years old under the care of Sylvester Stallone.
They were once just tiny turtles living in a fishbowl in the movie, Rocky. Now these two are full-grown and long living actors who enjoy their days with one of the world’s most iconic film stars.
The two movie star turtles were originally adopted by Sylvester Stallone after the filming of Rocky was over.
The amphibious pair had been his turtles in the movie as well, so this is one of those instances when life on the screen had a chance to become real life as well.
It’s like it was meant to be.
The stardom of Cuff and Link
In the movie, Rocky Balboa would go to the J&M Tropical Fish pet store to get food and other items for his two pet turtles, Cuff and Link. It was there that a budding romance with Adrian Pennino, who was working at the shop, would begin.
The turtles gave him an excuse to visit and ended up being a way for the two to bond. Eventually, their love would grow into something real and would move beyond the pet shop – all thanks to the two aquatic pets that helped to open the door to the romance.
If this latest trend hits the mainstream, I vote to begin sterilizing all humans instead of dogs and cats. Dogs are better than humans and I can prove it: First, put your dog and your ex in the trunk of your car and drive around like an idiot for 20 minutes. Then open the trunk.
Who’s happy to see you? Exacty.
A glittered dog scrotum. That’s where we’re at as a society. We’re not even dipping our own nutsacks in glitter. We’ve moved on to our dogs. How far removed from the threat of starving to death to do you have to be to pay to have someone do this? This is the type of thing that’s so unnecessarily extravagant that when the working class sees it they start getting an urge to cut off the heads of the rich.
We, as a species, need a new predator. We’ve been at the top of the food chain for too long. Somebody hurry up and invent, then piss off, artificial intelligence. Humans have become the animal kingdom equivalent of a foppish, ridiculously bewigged French noble whose diet is mostly foie gras and whose hobbies include pretending to be poor and… decorating his poodle’s balls. There’s actually absolutely nothing more foppish and French than glittering a poodle’s balls.
The “trend” first hit wide public awareness after being shared on the Royal Paws Pet Salon Facebook page. The North Carolina pet salon, however, is not a purveyor of sparkling dog balls. They posted the pictures for entertainment purposes only and assured their customers that they would absolutely not be partaking in testicular bedazzlement.
Some people have called the scrotal decoration animal cruelty but you can at least be satisfied in knowing that the only thing being hurt is these dogs’ pride. The glitter, which is edible, is applied to the dog scrotums with corn syrup (so, sugar). It’s not dangerous for the dogs, who’ve licked far worse things than their own balls and sugar.
Is this really how we’re repaying dogs for being the best?
Trump-hating left wing actress and comedian Sarah Silverman is getting a taste of her own medicine. She told The Bill Simmons Podcast last week that she lost a role in a movie — which she did not name — after producers discovered a photo of her donning blackface for a sketch on The Sarah Silverman Program.
She eventually expressed remorse over the skit and although falling short of returning any money or distributing reparations of any sort – Silverman claims she’s been trying to make up for it. “It was so disheartening. It just made me real, real sad, because I really kind of devoted my life to making it right.”
Silverman said she was disappointed in the executives’ decisions to fire her from the production, but she understood
“I recently was going to do a movie, a sweet part, then at 11 p.m. the night before, they fired me because they saw a picture of me in blackface from that episode,” she admitted. “I didn’t fight it.”
Silverman has expressed regret for the sketch, telling GQ last year that “it makes me feel yucky” and that she is “not that person anymore.”
The Wreck-It Ralph star also said it was “totally racist out of context.”
The clips from Silverman’s show in their context were a “Trading Spaces” parody of sorts where Silverman wore blackface as apart of a facetious attempt to understand the racial discrimination against African-Americans, after she said to a black waiter that she carried a heavier burden being Jewish.
Before former President Barack Hussein Obama rose to power and ushered in the woke era, this type of edgy humor was considered permissible. Now, it’s holding back Silverman’s career. She also revealed her concerns over outrage culture and what it is doing to comedy.
“I think it’s really scary, and it’s a very odd thing that it’s invaded the left primarily, and the right will mimic it,” the comedienne-actress said, calling the movement “righteousness porn.”
“It’s, like, if you’re not on board, if you say the wrong thing, if you had a tweet once … everyone is, like, throwing the first stone,” she explained. “It’s so odd. It’s a perversion. … It’s really, ‘Look how righteous I am, and now I’m going to press refresh all day long to see how many likes I get in my righteousness.'”
Silverman said it’s often difficult to look at the history of comedy through the lens of political correctness, noting that accountability is paramount in moving forward from such times. Actor, rapper, and TV host Nick Cannon called out Silverman earlier this year for her past use of blackface.
Silverman’s politics are as liberal as they come. She regularly joins the outrage mob against President Donald Trump as frequently as anyone, getting off on her own “righteousness” against the President and his supporters who she hates so much.
No point in explaining how mind blowingly stupid this tweet is so I’m just gonna go with FUCK YOU, and also add that you are a smelly penis hole with balls that touch water. Eat shit, you greedy twat. https://t.co/cqUQtHWtlW

Silverman is another ironic victim of the leftist witch-hunting culture she helped to create and continues to perpetuate.
Dogwhistle reminder that these words used by our openly Nationalist President are winks to the alt right:
Soros = The Jews
Nationalist =white Nationalist

“It’s OK to go, ‘Wow, look at this back then,'” she said. “That was so f***ed up looking at it in the light of today of what we know,’ but to hold that person accountable if they’ve changed with the times, like for me … I held myself accountable. I can’t erase that I did that, but I can only be changed forever and do what I can to make it right for the rest of my life.”
