12. Please Rob is on record saying that being called Meathead doesn't bother him.

http://www.tvguide.com/news/rob-reiner-forever-37441/

"People still refer to me as 'Meathead,' but there's nothing I can do about it even if it did bother me," Reiner says in a new book, The Directors: Take Two (TV Books), by Robert J. Emery, producer of The Directors series on Encore. "It will follow me for the rest of my life. It won't matter what I do or what I accomplish."

4. Until he gives back the money, I think he owns it.

And should wear it proudly, IMO.

17. Yes! In the context, coming from Archie

it meant being a liberal - being the opposite of the bigoted Archie.

8. Did you ever watch Orphan Black?

One of the characters refers, endearingly, to another as "Meathead". It, of course, starts as an insult, but becomes a TOE for several seasons.

I adore Rob Reiner. I also think he should embrace "Meathead". But if he really hates it that much, I guess I can reluctantly agree to stop using it.

10. Archie Bunker taught me alot when I was growing up

I could see Archie in things my father would say about people, issues of the day etc
I wasn't exactly a Meathead, but I could SURE see what points he was making in his arguments with Archie.

My feel my father finally came around, although a bit, when he came home from work one day and mom and I were watching the news. Vietnam reporting was going on, and almost daily occurrence, during that time period. At the end of the report, dad stated, "If you get drafted, I'm paying your way into Canada". Then he asked what was for dinner and walked out of the room. My mom and I just looked at each other.

11. Quit focusing on his nickname

Concentrate on what he tweeted. Doesn't sound to me like a "meathead" composed it.

15. Yes.

And it was no wonder the racist orange Shitler didn't want to attend since most of the honorees for 2017 were not white.
