"Shut up. Shut up. Shut up."

"Please. Shut up."

I gotta start doing some PR appearances.

That was a helpful clip! Lotsa insight on how to make a complete fool of yourself in public places!

Ain't America great!

Why I don't pay attention to the celeb culture.

Mitchell the Bat said...

I didn't watch.

Had I wanted to wander about some vast wasteland, I would have contemplated my own deep inner life.

But then again someone will have to explain to me why I'm not part of the problem.

Astro said...

Why do people watch that crap? Why subject yourself to the stress that induces? Even that clip - a few minutes of my life I'll never get back.

Besides, no one does "Shut Up" like Andrew Klavan.

Tim said...

Ah, yes.

Saw this the other day while cruising through the internets...I'm gratified to know the world we're leaving our children is so much better than the world our parents left us.

After all, doesn't everyone have to watch and know
"It Could Be Worse — You Could Have a 160 Lb. Scrotum"

Paul said...

The clip explains Hollywood to a T. Yea they really are pathetic people.

Why do we support them? Oh yea, they talk good in movies and can sing.

I stopped watching when the fat woman was telling little girls that they were going to be naked up on stage. I didn't even wait to find out if it was supposed to be a joke or something. That's disgusting. Oprah thought that was funny? I think Oprah needs to consult a therapist.

Stephen said...

Yes, I'm the one who pressed "play", but I'm blaming you for making available pictures that I can't unsee and voices that I can't unhear. Frankly, there should be a 48-hour waiting period on clicking sites you link to.

Well, it explains the Obama victory.

Big Mike, I hesitate to admit this but that's one of my favoritest shows. Partially because of the awful awful awful political campaigns drove me directly to it. They forced continual channel changes and the next one would be these girls, and I'd go argumentatively, "You know what's more interesting than you? These girls, that's who." And turns out they really are more interesting. Whenever they spoke I'd go, "Ah bless your little heart," each and every one is more sensible than everything else around them, including other channels. And they are very impressive dancers too. Straight up acrobats. Contortionists. Proper ballerinas. Turns out, the fat woman is the top in the country, apparently, and they seek her out and put up with all kinds of b.s. to have their girls trained by her.

When she demonstrates something she's the perfect picture of a scene in Fantasia.

But everyone in her industry hangs on her every word and to the girls she's goddess. They all saw directly through the thing I was laughing at and got exactly what she was doing.

Dancing nude is patently illegal.

So that was inserted for shock. They would be wearing bodysuits that gave the appearance of nudity, depicting being born probably, something like that. To win, their group routines must push some kind of edge. They won by depicting a car crash from texting. I can't imagine what the fat woman, Miss Abbie, respected in that realm, had in mind.

Incidentally, and this is irrelevant, interesting to me and maybe only me, she does a hand movement where she points with both hands as if punctuating dramatically, then separates her hands into loose fists, "a" in ASL. It's unique and idiosyncratic, somewhat ghetto, somewhat southern. In ASL that is the precise movement for the words "etcetera" and "various."

Back in the day, which is the first 160 out of earlthe last 200 years making fun of poor rural blacks was the largest single source of hilarity in our nations
Now we can make fun of poor rural whites with impunity
and think how much more enlightened we are.

Back in the early 70's my leftwing college prof put on one of the old "Amos and Andy" TV shows from the 50's
It was so funny that the entire class was on the floor
The actors were comedians from the 30s and 40s and great comedic talents.
The prof literally started screaming at us. We had ruined his self-righteous preaching.
He wanted us to be shocked and mortified, but we just enjoyed the talent and comedy.
This current targeting of poor white trash is less funny because it is disingenuous (plus, the writing is universally lame).
Why the exclusivity, if we are to insensitively make fun of unfortunate poor people?

Which is worse, these clips or the claim by the writer of the article that they made him pee himself? First name is Rich so I assume male. Peeing oneself from laughing too hard is strictly a female thing. But maybe it's a metrosexual thing as well for all I know.

Enough Oprah Enough ! Please

I laughed so hard I peed Oprah's pants.

@Chip, I don't have cable so I don't know what that show is. I don't care if the little girls were in bodysuits. That's in nauseating bad taste.

If anyone reading this thinks I'm just being prudish, go sit on a broomstick the long way up and rotate.
