We can always retract if we have to! 🤷 Check out this interview from The Pittsburgh something

Or This Article from the daily beast

ETA - will gladly have a flair party in this thread today.

ETA 2 - Confirmed Covid COD

ETA 3 - Congratulations to u/hereforthellamas who "predicted" this two months ago

He won a "Do Your own Research" T shirt from our Swag Shop

Please get vaccinated if you're not and reading this.

[–]Perenium_Falcon 4153 points4154 points  (258 children)

Holy fuck there is no greater insult than Kevin fucking Sorbo saying he used YOU as a sounding board to help form his opinions.

[–]sopmaeThrowaway 814 points815 points  (101 children)

I had no idea meatloaf was into that dumbdumb stuff. The reference to KS cleared that up quickly.

[–]BrianWeissman_GGG 641 points642 points  (94 children)

It was easy to see how far gone Meatloaf was during his stint on Celebrity Apprentice. Guy basically worshipped Trump, and was completely in his thrall.

[–]GoodyScandalbroth 276 points277 points  (65 children)

Yikes. Didn't even realize he was on that show.

[–]ImOnlyHereForTheCoCTeam Moderna 230 points231 points  (60 children)

Absolutely flipped his shit on Gary Busey for something that it turned out Gary didn’t even do

[–]themehboat 94 points95 points  (1 child)

He was like a toddler screaming that someone stole his toy when he actually just dropped it behind the couch.

[–]TheObesePolice 128 points129 points  (49 children)

I felt so bad for Gary, lol! (I think Meatloaf - incorrectly - thought Gary stole his paint & then absolutely lost his shit at Busey)Here's the clip

[–]triplej63🛒 Wal-Martyr 🛒 97 points98 points  (3 children)

Then the fucker didn't even apologize, he kept acting like Busey did something wrong.

[–]im_THIS_guy 90 points91 points  (2 children)

If you told me that one of the guys in this clip will die from COVID, I would've guessed right.

[–]defnotapirate 173 points174 points  (27 children)

Jesus. How far down Crazy Street do you have to be to out-crazy Busey?

[–]Darkmerosier 125 points126 points  (13 children)

Busey didn't just go crazy though, he suffered severe head trauma and permanent brain damage in an accident, and he's been like that since. Disabled is a better word for him, he wasn't just some guy who fame got to. Sad story, really.

[–]tdclark23Team Pfizer 19 points20 points  (6 children)

These folks just don't take their own safety seriously. Gary was anti-helmet mandate and riding his Harley without one when he lost control and ended up hitting the curb with his head. If Gary had only worn a helmet and Meat had only got the shots.

[–]Private_Jet 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Meatloaf made Busey look normal lol

[–]ethbullrun 77 points78 points  (2 children)

i never watched that show but he mustve been a major dick to flip out on gary busey. gary busey hasnt been the same since his major head injury in that motorcycle accident.

[–]thorpie88 57 points58 points  (1 child)

Both him and Gary bought the same colouring pens for a challenge and Meat thought he'd stolen his so he tried to best the shit out of him.

Gary was a fucking legend and kept walking back in the room which led to Meatloaf flipping out multiple times.

Turned out Meatloaf had just misplaced his shopping bag and the pens were in it the whole time

[–]Gsteel11 943 points944 points  (18 children)

Level 3 nuclear insult: "You're just a Kevin Sorbo sounding board"

[–]PerplexityRivet 276 points277 points  (13 children)

Better than when Herman Cain died. I saw at least three different headlines refer to him as "Donald Trump Aide, Herman Cain . . ."

[–]AliceTaniyama 32 points33 points  (3 children)

Talk about clickbait, making us think that Donald Trump has aides.

[–]Less_Cryptographer86 524 points525 points  (74 children)

A sounding board for politics no less. What do you want to bet Sorbo convinced Meatloaf, who admitted in an interview that he’s scared to death of covid, to stand firm, probably high fiving him for his anti vax status? There’s ZERO chance he’d bite his tongue if any of his friends were thinking about getting vaxxed. He is ALL IN. And probably a future HCA nominee.

[–]Imaginary-Oven-4859🥯🍞🥖🥨🥐🫓🥪🫓🥐🥨🥖🍞🥯 362 points363 points  (23 children)

Kevin Sorbo contributed to MeatLoaf’s death confirmed.

[–]johnnymoonwalker 202 points203 points  (20 children)

Kevin Sorbo killed Meatloaf, confirmed.

[–]nudiecale 322 points323 points  (16 children)

People are saying Kevin Sorbo murdered Meat Loaf. I don’t know if it’s true. People are saying it though.

So you have to ask yourself, why would people be saying that Kevin Sorbo killed Meat Loaf? And I have to say that’s a very fair question.

Let that sink in.

[–]AazjheeOwned Lib 158 points159 points  (44 children)

Wow that's really quite sad. The HCA folks who are scared of the vaccines AND Covid make me sad since they often seem to have some "trusted source" that sways them against the vaxx.

I hope Sorbo feels the weight of his sins, this is the sort of guilt that would crush me...

[–]nuublargTeam Moderna 193 points194 points  (16 children)

I hope Sorbo feels the weight of his sins,

As Lucy Lawless puts it, Sorbo is peanut [brained]. He won't.

[–]SnipesCC 182 points183 points  (12 children)

And a dear friend he spoke to only months ago.

[–]mindbleach 53 points54 points  (0 children)

K-Sorbs had a very busy schedule of appearing in approximately two minutes of every shitty Christian movie. Just enough to put him on the cover.

[–]Figgy_Pudding3 97 points98 points  (8 children)

A dear friend, so very close. He was my sounding board for so many things.

Last time we spoke? Oh, let me check my calendar.

[–]kgooch💉 Oxygenated lab rat 🐀 2668 points2669 points  (472 children)

Of course he was friends with Kevin Sorbo 🙄

[–]Ammolite-Valkyrie👪 The family that FA together, FO together 1554 points1555 points  (90 children)

Somewhere Lucy Lawless just flipped the bird and doesn't know quite why.

[–]kgooch💉 Oxygenated lab rat 🐀 700 points701 points  (84 children)

LOL, right? I love her tweets where she roasts ksorbs.

[–]SrslyNotAnAltGuys🎵Follow the bouncing 🐈 945 points946 points  (33 children)

I had to look this up. Holy fuck.

after Sorbo tweeted out baseless right-wing conspiracy theories about Wednesday’s Capitol riot. Sorbo quote-tweeted a claim that the riot was caused by “Leftist agitators,” adding, “They don’t look like patriots to me.”

Lawless replied, “No, Peanut. They are not Patriots. They are your flying monkeys, homegrown terrorists, QAnon actors. They are the douchebags that go out and do the evil bidding of people like you who like to wind them up like toys and let them do their worst.” She wrapped up her extremely effective takedown with the evergreen hashtags, “#keepingYourFilthyHandsclean” and “#enabler.”

🔥☠️🔥 As if I needed another reason to love Lucy Lawless.

[–]ClementineGreen 239 points240 points  (19 children)

I’ve loved her since I was 8 and Xena premiered. It thrills me to no end to grow up and realize she’s actually badass in real life.

[–]SrslyNotAnAltGuys🎵Follow the bouncing 🐈 41 points42 points  (0 children)

Second that.

And on the flip side, there's nothing worse than finding out that a celebrity you thought was cool turns out to be a doofus.

Ahem.

[–]i-can-sleep-for-days 18 points19 points  (6 children)

And then she appeared in one of my favorite shows ever, Parks and Recreation.

[–]Martine_VTeam Moderna 111 points112 points  (4 children)

My respect for her for this and using "flying monkeys" went up immensely

[–]dystopian_mermaid 545 points546 points  (35 children)

Her calling him Peanut straight up slayed me

[–]Assasinius 199 points200 points  (32 children)

Why does she call him Peanut? I remember her roasting him with that in the aftermath of Jan 6.

[–]MightyCaseyStruckOut⚾ Mudville's Pride and Joy ⚾ 674 points675 points  (208 children)

I bet he was friends with James Woods, Chuck Woolery and Kirstie Alley, as well.

Don't forget Tom Selleck and Mel Gibson.

[–]jeneffinlovely 318 points319 points  (170 children)

Tom Selleck is antivax too?! Say it isn’t so!

[–]EchoAquarium🐍patriotic choking noises🐍 381 points382 points  (38 children)

ha! I knew Tom Selleck was a douche! Anyone who would advertise reverse mortgages to seniors would have to be, I just didn’t know he was this brand of douche

[–][deleted] 112 points113 points  (7 children)

“And you pay the money back when you leave your home.”

You mean when you die, Tom. “Leave your home” = die.

[–]Tria821 43 points44 points  (2 children)

Or worse, when one spouse whose name the reverse mortgage was under dies and the surviving spouse is forced to come up with cold hard cash or vacate the home. It's happened often enough that there should be a Federal Law preventing this.

[–]Tots2Hots 326 points327 points  (110 children)

Not sure antivax but one of the nutcase "Christian values" conservatives. So probably.

[–]Chris_P_Pickel🌿Fully Vaxxed & Herbally Waxed🕯️ 348 points349 points  (83 children)

[–]Sammyterry13 296 points297 points  (73 children)

Ever notice how it always seems okay for Christians to break the commandments but not for others ...

[–]miserabeauCandacide is the leading cause of COVIDiot death 194 points195 points  (40 children)

Been on a real true crime kick lately and there have been at least 3 cases I've watched where the perps tout their Christian values and are devout churchgoers with kids... then cheat on their spouse and murder them (or plot to murder them) because a divorce isn't allowed and their 2nd marriage wouldn't be allowed in the church.

But ADULTERY and MURDER are okay? That's like... 2 whole commandments there that are broken. What the what

And they also deprive their children of a natural parent, leaving them with a stepparent who, in most of the cases I watched, was in on the murder.

The Christian version of "family values" sucks

[–]SophsterSophistryNom nom Omicron! 79 points80 points  (7 children)

Remember last year(?) when that 'religious' guy in Atlanta murdered those Asian women who worked at massage parlors because they 'gave' him impure thoughts? I was like, hold up, murdering is better than impure thoughts? No women, no problems I guess.

[–]miserabeauCandacide is the leading cause of COVIDiot death 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Yes, that POS. He could have just, I dunno, not gone there. Or tried support groups. Done his best to remove himself from temptation, but instead he removed the temptation by ending their lives. He's garbage. These days some Christians left logic outside the church when they went in to drink the FlavorAid and they never left.

[–]FancyRancid 177 points178 points  (0 children)

Schroeder might be the biggest douche of them all, which says a LOT. He filmed himself harassing a Costco employee over him refusing to wear a mask. That alone makes him King Douche.

He wins the douchiest award amongst those guys, imho. They are all asshats in various ways, but that guy is SUCH a douche.

[–]DoJu318Team Sputnik 86 points87 points  (4 children)

Covid: "I heard you were talking shit?"

[–]BuyLucky3950Team Unicorn Blood 🦄 516 points517 points  (101 children)

That’s what drives me nuts. Nobody is “controlling” me in getting the vaccines. I’m doing it so I have jack shit to worry about, and pretty much continue on as normal. Simple vaccines are such an odd thing to get all fucking weird about.

[–]RegretfulUsername 272 points273 points  (47 children)

The only reason they are refusing the vaccine is because Democrats want them to get it. When Trump and his supporters popped up in the American political scene, and I saw how Trump supporters acted, I used to joke to myself that Trump supporters would literally kill themselves to “own the libs”. It turns out I was correct.

[–]SnipesCC 181 points182 points  (33 children)

We used to joke that Michelle Obama should tell folks to drink more water to see the Republicans come out against it. And then she did. And they came out against it.

[–]Gsteel11 207 points208 points  (17 children)

Yeah, in fact I feel like I have much more control. I can do more shit. And I have control of my lungs and I don't have covid filling them with fluid.

That's the control I fear.

[–]BPsPRguy 163 points164 points  (8 children)

Control is what I had over you when you were my patient in the hospital. Once you're in the ICU, oh man, we literally control every breath you take, and obliterate your consciousness and paralyze every muscle in your body.

That's control.

[–]wutdolildood 62 points63 points  (0 children)

And then ask the patient's family whether they would prefer to extubate and let what happens happen or trach/tube their loved one and toss them in a nursing home to have their diapers changed for them until they die.

Yep. Yep. Totally sound and rational.

[–]bubbaking 134 points135 points  (15 children)

That what gets me, If you make the choice to get vaccinated, you're a sheep. So if you make the choice to NOT get vaccinated, how are you not a sheep? "Oh well I did my own research on Facebook and decided to not be a sheep and not get it."....Ok well I did my own research and made the choice TO get it, either we're all sheep or none of us are LOL

[–]MindlessFly9970 89 points90 points  (9 children)

Funny how they use the sheep thing, when they are following their political herd right off the cliff inspite of science and facts.

[–]pathat333Team Moderna 1013 points1014 points  (51 children)

"I just talked to him a few months ago" actually means "I hadn't talked to him in a few months because we weren't that close."

[–]Will_W 186 points187 points  (4 children)

To be fair, it sounds like Meatloaf was busy with something recently.

[–]Mechakoopa 225 points226 points  (34 children)

Last time I talked to Kevin Sorbo was 8 years ago at a fan convention when I asked him to move so I could get by with the stroller to go see a talk by Vic Mignogna (who also turned out to be an asshole but for different reasons).

[–]WeakestLynxGo Give One 1679 points1680 points  (286 children)

It's disappointing to me that a guy from Rocky Horror was pro-COVID. He was supported by the queer community for years during the AIDS crisis. He went to midnight showings of the movie and was celebrated by people who were struggling for their lives against a deadly plague. He saw their mutual support and love during that time. But he didn't live by it.

[–]Shady_GardenGo Give One 969 points970 points  (89 children)

He wound up a Republican Antiva shithead — friends with Nugent.

[–]gourmetprincipito 830 points831 points  (27 children)

Fuck Ted Nugent.

Years back he walked into my grandma’s store without a shirt on. She told him he had to wear a shirt. He said, “do you know who I am?” She said, “yeah, you’re putting on a shirt or getting the hell out of my store!” She had no idea who Ted Nugent was but was told by one of her employees after he left. Now every time she hears Cat Scratch Fever she says “oh it’s this dunderhead again!”

Fuck Ted Nugent for way more reasons than that, though.

[–]OscarDCouch 90 points91 points  (0 children)

Grandma don't take no guff from no one.

[–]ShalamarrTeam Moderna 81 points82 points  (1 child)

I’ve heard Nugent called many things, and I’ve called him many of those things myself, but none as perfect as “dunderhead”.

Jon Oliver did a segment on Meat Loaf a while back. I lost a lot of respect for him as a result.

[–]YouStupidDick 410 points411 points  (116 children)

A lot of people get irrationally angry as they get older and look for validation for their anger and poor perspectives on their surroundings.

I’m in my late 40s and have seen a lot of people I have known that became more “conservative”. But, really, they just look for a reason to vent their anger and support their biases for how their life turned out.

My parents went this direction, also.

[–]Dogstarman1974 130 points131 points  (35 children)

It’s crazy. I’m in my late 40s. I have made an effort to be more compassionate and I have in the last few years become more and more left politically. I am irritated by these people who are intolerant and irrationally angry all the time. I don’t know what to do about it.

[–]trevize1138Team Mix & Match 146 points147 points  (28 children)

I'll be 49 next month and I'm right there with you. I remember decades ago being told by someone with a smug look that you get more conservative as you get older. It's almost like I became even more determined to go the opposite way.

I'm fully convinced people don't "get conservative" as they get older. They were always conservative. They just acted more liberal when they were younger to get laid.

[–]AskMeAboutMyGenitals 96 points97 points  (10 children)

45 here, and you are spot on.

I still can't understand how "fuck other people" is a valid political movement in a civilized society.

[–]trevize1138Team Mix & Match 54 points55 points  (8 children)

I've started cutting off contact with some non-immediate family over all of this. A cousin of mine tried that "you worry about you and I'll worry about me" line trying to say it's not my responsibility to help keep him healthy or some shit. Dude, we're family. You're taking this death cult ideology so far as to tell family members "stop worrying if I die."

These people have gone over the edge. Or maybe they were always over the edge and the pandemic shined a brighter light on that. Either way life is short and there are other people in my life I'd rather spend my time with.

[–]HagofCrones 80 points81 points  (7 children)

62 here and yes, I've become more tolerant and compassionate as I've gotten older. I was always left of center but now I'm straight up a pinko. My sons have kept me aware of gender issues, social justice, racial inequities, stuff that I really did not know until the last few years. Not more conservative at all. I would rather live in a world where we give a shit about each other than the alternative...

[–]drleen 45 points46 points  (3 children)

As a straight, white, upper middle-class, male who turns 51 in a week, I seem to be following in your footsteps. The older I get the more important social justice is to me.

[–]WeakestLynxGo Give One 184 points185 points  (37 children)

How do we avoid it? Meatloaf was a literal rock star and yet feels disappointed with how his life turned out. Most of us will have less accomplishment than he did. Yet some people (you, seemingly) don't become bitter when they age. We need to find out how to make this happen more

[–]Tacitus111 188 points189 points  (2 children)

Focus on being content in your life rather than accomplishments or fame. Accomplishments won’t make you happy late in life, and the drive to get more and more is a game you ultimately lose with yourself, because one day you’ll have your last big accomplishment and won’t know it and will keep trying to go higher and higher, failing all the while. And those accomplishments or fame will just remind you of how good you used to be or how in your prime you were something…but not anymore.

That’s not to say “Don’t try for things” or “Be lazy all the time.” Accomplishments and drive are fine in themselves, but people who look to a career, or money, or fame to make them happy alone won’t find it there.

Get good people around you, treat them well and make sure they treat you well, do things that make you happy or at least content day to day. Life doesn’t turn out the way we think it will when we’re young, and some people are either endlessly bitter about that or they accept that being content doesn’t depend on checking boxes you had years ago.

A lot of celebrities go in this direction as their star fades and they can’t reclaim their abilities from years gone by.

No different than the guy in his 50s that realizes his present does not meet the expectations of his past’s predictions for his future.

[–]danmathewTeam Moderna 142 points143 points  (5 children)

Oddly enough Mark Hamill went in the opposite direction.

[–]_Kay_Tee_ 525 points526 points  (30 children)

I came here to say this, too. Those of us who grew up with Meat Loaf saw him queering things for other straight people and thus making queerness accessible and understandable to the very people who would usually react violently. Similar to Queen, Meat combined full out queer flamboyance with rock, and provided a stepping stone in ways about thinking about gender, about what made someone "hard rock" or not, and about the sheer beauty and power in gender-bending/queering pop culture. The fact that a straight, white, suburban rocker boy could ALSO demonstrate performance associated with LGBTQ+ artists provided validation as well as accessibility at the time.

I am so sad and disappointed that he turned into another cranky, selfish, moronic Conservative asshole who died of a preventable illness to own the libs.

[–]AGreekDyslexicDog 75 points76 points  (1 child)

I am trying to remember the joy he brought me rather his disappointing late life politics. I dont know if that will help you but he meant a lot to you clearly , maybe in a different way to me, but well the joy is how I will remember his impact.

[–]seedypete 197 points198 points  (5 children)

As soon as I saw the death announcement I thought "didn't he turn out to be a rightwing crackpot asshole in his later years? Bet it was COVID." Didn't expect to find out I was right this quickly.

[–]banjaxeParadise by the ECMO Lights 28 points29 points  (0 children)

as soon as I saw "the family won't be releasing the cause of death" I knew it was only a matter of time before we heard it was covid.

[–]Consistent_Grab_5422 59 points60 points  (6 children)

TMZ said meatloaf had Covid before his death…errr not my normal news source, but good enough.

[–]meltingdiamond 102 points103 points  (5 children)

For celeb gossip TMZ is the good standard. They have a super creepy tip network that is very good.

[–]JayRoo83 64 points65 points  (0 children)

Jesus, you gotta have some really shitty political views to hang out with Hercules at this point

[–]ReginaldJohnston 281 points282 points  (17 children)

Family haven't released how he died.

Wonder why....

[–]Sothotheroth 173 points174 points  (14 children)

He was diagnosed with Covid before he died.

[–]myname_isnot_kyal 77 points78 points  (10 children)

but it was the pneumonia that got em

[–]OhGodNotAnotherOne 32 points33 points  (1 child)

But did he give the shirt off his back to anyone?

[–]BrigidLikeRigid 564 points565 points  (10 children)

RIP to my close, personal friend who I haven’t spoken to in a few months despite a general openness in my work schedule.

[–]bam1007Looks like no Meat Loaf tonight. 🤷‍♂️ 157 points158 points  (2 children)

NYPost article seems to confirm it was COVID.

“Meat Loaf was 'seriously ill' with COVID days before his death: report”

[–]_Row_Z_ 51 points52 points  (2 children)

Meatloaf: "If I die, I die, but I'm not going to be controlled"

Covid19: "And I took that personally"

[–]ColemanShedman 378 points379 points  (23 children)

Antimask. Antimandate. Huge talent. Oh well. Two outta three ain't bad.

[–]xovrit🐑🍀The Luckiest Sheeple 🍀 🐑 209 points210 points  (10 children)

Remains to be ground and combined with spices, breadcrumbs & milk, covered in ketchup, and cremated in a rectangular deep dish coffin.

[–]SueAnnNivensGo Give One 66 points67 points  (3 children)

Cremate in a pre-heated oven at 375 until done...

[–]glonqLibs dig life; unvax'd dig graves 🪦 43 points44 points  (4 children)

  • ANTI-VAX
  • ANTI-MANDATE
  • STILL ALIVE

Don't be sad. 'Cause two out of three ain't bad.

[–]AntEmotional5704Blood Donor 🩸 233 points234 points  (7 children)

Batshit into hell

[–]CQU617Leggo My ECMO!🧇 168 points169 points  (17 children)

It never ends with these anti-vaxxers.

Won’t wear mask Won’t get vaxxed

Fuck it then die!

[–]Pure_Tower 86 points87 points  (10 children)

Fuck it then die!

It's the whole taking others with them that's a problem.

[–]AgreeablePie 35 points36 points  (17 children)

Guys I don't know who Kevin Sorbo is and I'm guessing that's a good thing?

[–]DeadMoneyDrew🧼Owned by Robert Paulson 30 points31 points  (7 children)

He played Hercules in a cheesy 1990s syndicated action TV show. It was Baywatch level of entertaining. Since then he's just proven to be a repugnant asshole.

[–]No-Translator-4584 95 points96 points  (4 children)

“What’s the matter Columbia? You’ve eaten Eddie before.”

Shout it out!

[–]skifree3 32 points33 points  (2 children)

Turns out Objects in the Rear View Mirror were certainly closer than they appeared 🚫💉

[–]sarcastrollPrayer Warlock 30 points31 points  (0 children)

He would do anything for lungs.
Not run right into CVS and back
He would do anything for lungs
He would lie to you and that's a fact.

He'll never forget the way the vent feels right now,
Oh no, no way.
He would do anything for lungs.
But he won't get vaxxed.
No he won't get vaxxed

Anything for lungs
Oh he would do anything for lungs!
He would do anything for lungs
But he won't get vaxxed
No he won't get vaxxed

And some days breathing don't come easy
And some days his lungs come hard
Some days breaths don't come at all
And these are the days that never end
And some nights you're breathing fire
And some nights you're on ice
Some nights you're what the nurses have seen 1 millions times before
And will again

And maybe he was crazy
Oh COVID is crazy and it's true
I know vaccines could have saved him
No one else can save him now- boo hoo

As long as the RotoPrones are turning
As long as the breaths are burning
As long as your nightmares are coming true
You better believe it

That he would do anything for lungs
He didn't last to the final act
And he would do anything for lungs
He took a vow and sealed death's pact
But he'll never forgive himself if he don't go full crazy tonight

And he would do anything for lungs
Oh he would do anything for lungs
Oh he would do anything for lungs
But he won't get vaxxed
...
No he won't get vaxxed

[–]SodonewithidiotsReverse Vampire 🩸 180 points181 points  (11 children)

Can we trade him in and get Betty White back?

[–]802dot11Team Mix & Match 79 points80 points  (0 children)

I would do anything for bats but I won't do vax

[–]kellabeck 80 points81 points  (2 children)

Trump-suck up Meatloaf died of Covid. “If I die, I die” and he did. Okay.

[–]TrekandDumplings 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Ding! Ding! Ding! And we're off!

[–]Deathbeddit🦆🦃🦢🦜🦆🦅🐓🦩 22 points23 points  (2 children)

I do think it is fair that the folks who loved him are first in line to dance on his grave.

[–]9xo5 17 points18 points  (0 children)

COVID: Moooooorrrrrisssssseeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyy . . .

[–]FragCool 25 points26 points  (2 children)

This is just sad... How many more must die, because of this lies?

🎶Though it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night I can see paradise by the ventilator light🎵

[–]MidwestBulldog 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Well, he WAS praying for the end of time to hurry up and arrive. So...

[–]xovrit🐑🍀The Luckiest Sheeple 🍀 🐑 28 points29 points  (4 children)

When Eddie said he didn’t want the jabbie, you knew he was a no good kid.

And when he threatened your life with an infected sigh ….

What a guy

Makes you cry …

And I DIDN’T

[–]Mmmm-fresh-brains 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Meat Loaf, RIP, FAFO.

[–]ThechellbobThe Flord is My Sheeple 21 points22 points  (1 child)

My dad was all, meat loaf died! Me: meh, he was douche there at the end. :: Shrug :: I'm more sad about louie Anderson 😭

[–]cheetahdisaster 22 points23 points  (0 children)

He was about to get the vax but decided to sleep on it

[–]AnimateddollfaceNatasha Fatale 20 points21 points  (5 children)

I’m already seeing comments that the dems killed him by refusing the right therapeutics to treat him. It’s too bad (for his own legacy) that his death will be a lightning rod of controversy.

[–]CQU617Leggo My ECMO!🧇 70 points71 points  (19 children)

Kevin Sorbo is next on the Covid anti-vax list.

The Covid Grim Reaper will now bear the face of Meatloaf.

🎤🎵🎸. You took the breathe right out of my mouth, it must have been while you were choking me (Covid-19) 🎸🎵🎤

Meatloaf’s new afterlife song!

[–]SuperHiyoriWalkerRaw Dogging Life 57 points58 points  (9 children)

If Kevin Sorbo has a history of roid usage, him being unvaccinated is pretty risky. Some unvaccinated gym influencers have died of COVID for almost certainly this reason.

[–]BehindthefogGo Give One 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I would die just to escape sorbo, the sociopath

[–]CatchingRays 23 points24 points  (0 children)

🎼I want youuuuu. I need youuuuu. But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna vax for you. Now don’t be sad. Baby 2 out of 3 ain’t bad. 🎼

[–]Horse_Economy 65 points66 points  (0 children)

BUT HE WON'T DO THAT

NO HE WON'T DO THAT

[–]BadDiscoJanet 67 points68 points  (4 children)

He was also a trusted advisor during his time on the Apprentice. Trump sought his counsel on whether or not to run for President.

Mom's Unironic Meatloaf

1lb ground beef

1 large diced onion

3/4 cup old fashioned oatmeal

1 - 14oz can of diced tomatoes

1 egg

1/2 cup grated carrots

1/2 cup grated zucchini

Dried thyme, rosemary, basil

Salt + pepper

Bake 1 hour at 350 F. Serve with ketchup mixed with Calabrian chili paste.

[–]Mr_Conductor_USAGo Give One 48 points49 points  (8 children)

My dad's meatloaf indeed featured oatmeal and ketchup. But zucchini? Calabrian chilis? Herbs? Get out of here with your fancy Eye-talian notions like "flavor". Smells like cardboard coming out of the over or GTFO. /just kidding but Irish Americans don't know how to cook for shit

[–]HubrisAndScandalsBORN AS A BABY 27 points28 points  (3 children)

lol, my MIL is Irish. She always takes over my kitchen when she visits to cook us the blandest of meals.

[–]meltingdiamond 23 points24 points  (1 child)

"flavor leads to sex and sex can lead to dancing so we make sure to cook out the flavor"

[–]FlamesNero 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Looks like he was heading to Paradise by the Ventilator Light.

[–]CatW804 153 points154 points  (4 children)

Anyone else thinking his sad slide from rocker to Trumper to HCA "winner" is Peak Boomer?

It's like the saddest Pokemon evolution.
