Off with his Head!

Ertuğrul Postoğlu as Bahadir Bey
We're deep into Season 4 of Ertuğrul and last night Bahadir Bey finally got his comeuppance. He swaggers in from nowhere and wants to be declared leader of the tribe and when that is denied, he starts scheming to take out Ertuğrul. Well, all's fair in love, war and politics, but he crosses the line when he conspires with the enemy. Never mind that there is a war going on, this guy would sell his own mother for some personal aggrandizement. Where is his mother anyway? Did he sell her for a gold plated trinket?

Anyway, after weeks of torturing us with his lying, double dealing and generally being a low down dirty dog, he gets found out and Ertuğrul chops off his head. My wife and I both let out a cheer! It's like the Trail Blazers won a playoff game!

None of this would be worth mentioning except for this story about a modern day head chopper-offer getting his head chopped off kind of brought it into focus. (Via Knuckledraggin My Life Away)

Funny how people feel about violence. If it's our people getting whacked, then our blood boils and revenge is the order of the day. If our soldiers manage to whack a bad guy, then it's cause for celebration.
