Weary? Weary? Weally?
Have you seen that show Girls on HBO? It’s so racist.
’90s Cartoon Harlem Shake:
I’m going to guess that the thin-skinned members of my family from Minnesota would be offended by this commercial (they were offended by Fargo without having seen it). The Jamaicans I know would probably be amused by the spot. Does this spot have fun with cultural stereotypes? Definitely. Is it hurtful? Doubtful (unless you are a thin-skinned Minnesotan). The fact is this commercial wasn’t racist until Charles Blow declared it was in the NY friggin’ Times and that’s when the Internet jumped on the finger-pointing bandwagon.
My main problem with the interview was the lack of black, hispanic, and asian people.
I’ve heard this is Dan Quayle’s favorite commercial of all time.
Gabe and many of his sycophants have some weird kind of bug up their asses when it comes to Gervais. We get it. You don’t like him. So why do you waste so much time talking about him? This post should have been about how shitty the profile and the profiler are, not about how (seemingly) self-involved Gervais is. Almost all of Gabe’s examples are sentences written by the profiler not words that came from Gervais himself so this whole post is really just Gabe making assumptions based on his bizarre hatred of man he should care nothing about. Move on. Or else you’ll end up being just like the man you hate.
Gabe, you’re such a ridiculous hypocrite. You can shit all over Tim Allen but Ricky Gervais can’t? You think Tom Cruise’s “Sunday outfit” is fantastic fodder for insult jokes but Gervais’ absolutely brilliant Cruise-Travolta-Scientology joke was hackneyed? Oy.
What, no link to the Johnny Depp/Ricky Gervais Golden Globes-referencing clip? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=MnSCkpHGqz0) You are such a mong. I mean slut.
It actually was a great interview (well, the responses were great; Leno is just a hopelessly awful interviewer). President Obama is a thoughtful, intelligent adult with a healthy sense of humor which makes most Americans’ heads explode (since America clearly doesn’t deserve to have an adult in charge of the country).
So you think it’s okay to throw the word “slut” around as long as you’re just joking?
Didn’t Kelly imply Scarlett Johansson was a “SLUT” for dating lots of men in a previous post? Isn’t that being completely insensitive to women (and Ms. Johansson)? hypocrisygum is depressing the shit out of me.
I’m sorry but “My favourite drink is toilet” is fucking hilarious and this
is one of my all time favourite songs. politicallycorrectgum is depressing me.
You missed Louis C.K.’s brilliant Jackie Kennedy defense on Real Time:
Girl Drink Drunk!
There’s was a not so vague racist “joke” in both episodes that have aired so far (I think both were uttered by Elijah Wood’s annoying sister). Completely out of left field, completely unnecessary and completely loathsome.
As a “dog person”, I enjoyed the pilot which featured some pretty great dog behavior jokes (such as Wilfred turning in circles before sitting on the couch). I was disappointed that the second episode seemed to have dropped much of the dog stuff in favor of plot development. Let’s see how episode three turns out…
One of the weirdest experiences of my life: Hired by TNT to do the press junket for Bonfire of the Vanities. All of us were brought to a screening the night before and all of us left the theater absolutely miserable. Then, the next day we were escorted to the hotel suite where we had to individually interview Brian DePalma, Bruce Willis and Tom Hanks. Time to work on our acting chops: “Loved the movie Brian.” “Terrific casting!” “You were wonderful Bruce.” etc. DePalma looked suicidal. Willis was a total dick. And Tom Hanks was the nicest, warmest, most genial person I had ever met. It felt completely genuine. But, yeah, most of his movies have sucked since Splash and Big.
That’s because Mitch is a Maenad.
Wow, Gabe must have watched this show in an alternate universe. This is the first time in years that I’ve actually watched the show in real time and it was painful. With the exception of the Ambiguously Gay Duo (not live), the Corn Syrup spot (not live and already used) and the Ann-Margret “sketch”, this show was dead on arrival. The cold open was cold as usual (we get it Lorne: you’re a Republican). I actually like Ed Helms but he muffed every single scene he was in. His monologue was full of crickets and didn’t click until the payoff (which is a pretty tired concept — who in the audience didn’t think he had a goofy outfit on under his shirt and pants?). In fairness to Ed, I think he was underused (but maybe because he kept muffing everything up in rehearsal?) — I actually felt sorry for him. I think he went into witness protection for half of the show after What’s Up With That (which is seriously played out). And finally, I’m pretty sure that Weekend Update didn’t contain a single joke. Back to watching Sundays on the DVR!
I wonder if they all had a good laugh with director John Landis about that time he killed Vic Morrow and those two young children.
It’s nice to see that the majority of monsters refused to take Gabe’s cynical bait. Is it just me or has Gabe become even more cynical since returning from L.A.?
This video gave me mouth cancer.
“And what do all of these songs have in common?” “Headbands.”
“…when I finished the last page, I returned to the first and felt my mind fall out” – That’s exactly what I did when I finished the book on a beach in Jamaica and that’s exactly what happened to my mind. Thanks for posting this Mans.
I will never look at sunnyside up eggs the same way again…
