Bret McKenzie's Wolf Shirt
Find Me On:
Not to keep playing Monday Morning Quarterback on the posts, but isn’t the obviously plot of this movie is that the Beaver keeps saying racist and misogynist things that no one can react to because it’s a puppet?
A rare miss, Director Jodie Foster.
Just a thought, what if De Niro and Ben Stiller switched for this week’s episode? Stiller hosts with a couple guest spots from De Niro. I think the episode maybe, strangely comes together…
Also, when are we just gonna get it over with, SNL, and retool the show as the Bill Hader Comedy Hour and a Half?
It’s what we all want!
I am slightly upset. Would you mind if I don’t necessarily take this anymore?
Am I the only one who thought that Gibbard was legitimately annoyed for the first 2 minutes of that? Also, “Phil Collins would know.”
Hey guys, I think we all need to talk about the fact that almost every person who was ever in a John Hughes film is now a colossal failure. Even you, Jon Cryer.

I want to say that it is USUALLY safe to assume that the person who is the main character of a sketch is its writer. But the scripts of sketches definitely get passed around A LOT throughout the week, so everyone kind of has the opportunity to get their fingerprints on any given sketch. Bill Hader talks about how he’s always trying to get more Vincent Price on the show, so you know that whenever they do a Vincent Price sketch, it’s coming from him. Weekend Update would be the exception to the rule – I believe Meyers says that they have 2 or 3 writers who do only that every week, other than the special segments.
It’s so nice to have adult-monster conversations about this stuff! We did it! I do ultimately lean towards option three in my theories, which is what you just stated, werttrew. But let’s not cut videogum too short, it is the web’s number one place for trampoline accidents and Puppy Bowl coverage.
I must admit, part of me does like thinking of Samberg or Sudeikis panicking before the weekly pitch meeting and frantically scrolling through the archives looking for some inspiration. We’ll know it to be true if Seth Meyers ever says “All right, settle down you monsters!”
On a more or less serious note, can I present a theory/question? First, a premise. Every now and again Seth Meyers will do a podcast interview with a sportswriter, Bill Simmons, on espn.com (we cannot escape sports!). During each interview Simmons will pitch a couple sketch ideas to Meyers. One actually made it onto the show, though Meyers said that someone else had that idea as well, but a couple of the jokes from the interview were used on SNL, so. Meyers has even said he’s written a couple jokes/sketches for Simmons (I guess as an easter egg for the fans?)… Anyway, can we all agree that there have been a couple strange intertextual moments between SNL and Videogum this year? What with the juggalos sketch and the timing of this week’s Rip Torn joke (even though it did not make the cut).
A few theories:
1. The Number 23
2. Gabe has passed along a couple jokes/ideas to his dear (and very funny) friend Jenny Slate and they have found themselves reaching the air.
3. SNL’s cast is interested in the same stuff as us monsters and that’s why we find them so funny!
Regarding number 2, just so that I don’t get downvoted into oblivion meaning someone else will have to carry the fire: I’m just throwing out a fun idea on a slow monday morning! I don’t view it as a bad thing!
“… Rip Torns.” WORLDS BE COLLIDING!!!!!!!
Hey guys, we can offer our concerns about a show, it only shows we care for it! Regarding Community: I LOL a lot at it, but I understand its criticisms. I think it’s a show that is trying to figure what it is. It obviously began as a Joel McHale/Chevy Chase vehicle but is starting to realize that we all love the Troy/Abed angle as well as the incredible Trudy Campbell (that is her name TO ME). So I think we’re in a weird transition phase as the show becomes LESS Jeff and Britta focused and more group oriented (much like Parks and Rec had to figure out that the supporting cast needed more time). We can build on this!
I DEMAND a gif of Ron Swanson joyfully searching of a Nutriyum bar underneath his seat!
I just thought I’d share a story of how I found true happiness:
I have a beautiful wife who tells me I worry too much. She says I should smile more. The other thing is that my wife is a gambler, and one day she gets in deep with the sharks. So they carve her face and we don’t have any money for the surgery. She just can’t take it and I just want to see her smile again. I want her to know that I don’t care about the scars. So one day I take a razor in my mouth and do something to myself and now she can’t stand the site of me! She leaves, but now I see the funny side and I can’t stop smiling!
I am facing a dire situation and could use your Godly wisdom for guidance. See, I am the star wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals in the National Football League and I am in my contract year. The problem is that the team seems to not want to pay me what I believe I am worth. I have tried to communicate this to my agent, telling him how he has to display to me the amount of money I believe I am due, but he seems distracted by his new wife and son as well as the chance at also being the agent for the college quarterback who will be picked #1 in next year’s draft. I have a really big game coming up on Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys that could make or break my career and my agent just keeps telling me to go out and play and have fun. But I’m not that kind of player. I don’t dance! What should I do?
My name is Gilbert and I live in the town of Andora. Something has been eating at me of late. Any suggestions?
P.S. Please feel free to come and see me here, as I an my brother Artie aren’t going anywhere.
You guys, what about the fact that Blair had a relapsed back to Season 1′s SADNESS PIE SCENE???
Also, do these jokes by People magazine even work? It would be one thing if Martin and Dan Ackroyd were hosting the show together, then the “wild and crazy guys” joke would at least make sense.
Also, nice Edge reference.
“And what are you supposed to be…a gay person???”
Hey guys, listen, Jeff Dunham is obviously the absolute worst and should die in a fire and raked over coals (one for every awful joke he’s made), and Sarah Silverman is obviously great, but what is the difference between the two at times? Each uses a character (or characters) to voice offensive jokes (Silverman is quoted as such). I’m not trying to rile people up, but is there a line we can draw? Is it because Dunham might be giving voice to his audiences latent awfulness where as Silverman’s audience is laughing at the whole meta aspect of her comedy?
Again, it needs to be said AGAIN that Jeff Dunham is simply awful. the worst.
I don’t know if I started the trend, but I declared myself a Keenan apologist in the comments section of the wrap up of last week’s episode in regards to his STELLAR Maya Angelou impression.
Also, look up his “scared straight” sketches – especially the one with tracy morgan.
I’m sorry, I didn’t know that having an opinion on a character in a show that we all love would relegate me to the world of Jaime Foxx and the Juggalos. And I also qualified my point by stating how I was aware of the fact that the show is playing on the audience’s moral relativity regarding Don and Betty.
All that being said, Yes, Betty is trying much harder this season… to get banged.
I know that Mad Men is doing the same thing to its audience that the Sopranos did – i.e. exposing the moral relativity of its fan base – we love and laud Don despite his infidelities and are shocked and appalled with Betty, but can I just say that Betty Drapper is the worst? How come we never talk about the fact that she might be a HORRIBLE mother?
Now I might be a Kenan Thompson apologist, but wasn’t his Maya Angelou impression TBS very funny?!?!?
Also, Jenny Slate had a very prominent role in the fake commercial about the online college. Her mumbling was the best mumbling.
