(“ANYBODY SEEN EDNA?! ANYBODY KNOW WHY EDNA DID ANDY SILVO?!!”)
Anderson Silva has always been a bit of a strange dude. Call it “crazy like a champion” or whatever you want, but there’s no denying that the guy’s a little…batty. The Bieber fever. The lip-synching videos. Those Burger King commercials. The often insane and seemingly trollish things he tells the media. And don’t even get me started on the Steven Seagal nonsense.
Point is, ol’ Andy is prone to some bouts of irregularity (here’s him pretending to be Spiderman in a parking garage, for instance). Not that I can blame him; I’m already a phone call away from the looney bin and I have neither millions of dollars nor the ability to kill 99.9% of the people on this planet with my bare hands. And besides, Silva’s craziness is an x-factor that probably helped him come up with such consistently mind-blowing (more on this later) finishes over the years.
But this…this is the kind of shit that makes me think Anderson just a case of energy drinks away from going on a vehicular rampage across Brazil, if you know what I am saying (via MMAFighting):
Silva has filed a police report against a woman in Brazil for defamation.
According to the chief of police department in Pinhais, Marcelo Magalhaes, the UFC star felt offended when a woman called him “rotten” on Twitter.
“We’re still investigating to get her name, address and phone,” Magalhaes told Globo. “It’s a 40-year-old woman who wrote on the internet, in a social media, several phrases, including ‘Brazil will see the idol and rotten that you are’ [Ed. Note: 'shitty idol' was also used].”
The process is expected to go to court next. The penalty for this type of crime in Brazil is up to six months in jail, or a fine.
To be a fly on the wall at this court appearan-SIX MONTHS IN JAIL?!! For saying something mean on the internet?!
This is typically the point in the article where I attempt tone things down and analyze the situation (ie. form a coherent thought), but are you fucking kidding me? It would be like criticizing Chicken Run for taking too many liberties with the ingenuitive abilities of the common fowl. Brazil be crazy/thread.
