Richard-Simmons

It's been a loooooong week and your grimmons has been a boon and a privilege for my eyes to view. All the rag roses at your door.

Pst, hey, here’s an extra grimmons for you, you beautiful wonderful person, you. 

Impossibly Ridiculous Grif Headcanon’s

“I’ve made tons of these so I might as well share some:

  • Grif used to scuba dive; he knew a guy who owned a boat and in exchange for getting lifts to prime diving area’s he’d work on the boat occasionally
  • Grif has tons of artifacts from shipwrecks because of this
  • Sarge and Grif have a designated hour of “talking” that mainly consists of Sarge resisting the urge to shoot him and Grif complimenting this fact:
    “You’re doing great, Sir”
    “Grrrrrrrrrrr”
    “Amazing job”
  • It’s meant to help Sarge resist the urge to kill Grif
  • Grif’s the type of asshole who sends out rattatas on Wonder Trade and in return always gets shinies
  • They will never tell anybody this and they will deny this fact forever, but Simmons and Grif can quote Spongebob perfectly sometimes and it’s just a casual thing they do. Those nerds.
  • One time they were stuck in a small area with Wash and he made some passing comment about claustrophobia and then they just whisper to themselves:
    “What does claustrophobic mean?”
    “It means he’s afraid of Santa Claus”
    “HO HO HO”
    “Stop it, Grif! You’re scaring him!”
  • Grif’s the type of person when playing Mario Kart that drives backward the entire race and it pisses Simmons off to no end
  • “ACTUALLY TRY TO WIN, GRIF!”
    “I’m winning in reverse, Simmons. That takes a lot more skill”
    “NO, IT DOESN’T”
  • Grif’s usually the first person to cry when watching a sappy movie but it’s only a single tear as he clenches his jaw and first and just tries really hard not to shed another tear

I have tons more but then this post would get too long, most of these are silly really but personally, I find them hilarious!

'Missing Richard Simmons' And The Nature Of Being Known
The podcast came to an anticlimactic end as a mystery, but it says a lot about the demands of being a public figure.

The six-episode podcast Missing Richard Simmons dropped its final episode on Monday, two days ahead of schedule. For a project nominally devoted to finding out more about what happened to one-time fitness guru Richard Simmons, it wasn’t very satisfying by that standard. Host Dan Taberski concluded, in effect, that Richard Simmons was safe and physically healthy and had withdrawn voluntarily from public life without much fanfare, which is … pretty much what we already knew. 

But as unsatisfying as the show was as a mystery, it was fascinating as a study of what we ask of public figures — of what we feel entitled to ask of them.
