Hi, we’re the other Adams family!

March 18, 2008

hair-140.jpgBlog Guy, I’ve been watching that new HBO series, “John Adams.” You know, the one where that wine snob guy from another movie plays our second president. In one episode, the colonial women put on a fashion show for the men, and they wear sexy outfits and play a disco version of “Yankee Doodle” and there are dancing mimes and stuff. Did that really happen?

Look, it’s possible the makers of this series about our freedoms took some liberties, so to speak. Like when John Adams hands the Declaration of Independence to John Hancock and says, “Put your John Hancock there.” And after dinner, when Ben Franklin passes around his homemade candies and says, “Have a Franklin mint.”

Let’s just say if you are put off by the accuracy of this show, you should definitely avoid the next HBO series, about our third president, called “The Jeffersons.”
