This picture of Miss Katie dancing at a 2006 party celebrating her ascension to the Evening News has been iMaking the e-rounds today, and everyone apparently thinks that it is so funny, but I don’t think it is funny at all. For one thing, there is nothing more horrible than images of white people dancing, and none of us are safe from its terrors (except those of us who are not white, which at Videogum is what, like three of us?). Whether in still photographs, or in club footage on the Real World, white people having just enough alcohol in their system to truly let their guard down and just enough confidence (confidence brought about by, say, being named the newest anchor of the CBS Evening News) to not grab the camera out of someone’s hand and smash it on the dance floor is exactly how tragedies are made. In that sense, today we are all Katie Couric.

But even more importantly: let the lady have some fun! It’s not every day that she can just turn off the complicated pneumatic tubing system that holds her face together and just relax. Robots almost never get to have any fun! It’s always “I’m a robot this,” and “does not compute that.” And also robots deserve privacy just as much as the rest of us. And other jokes about Katie Couric being a robot! LEAVE THAT WEIRD ROBOT ALONE!

  1. She just needs to be booty dancing in a graveyard, that’s all. Class it up, Ms Couric!

  2. Even for an old lady that move looks extremely constipated.

    • I agree. She looks like she’s getting up from popping a squat.

      That’d be fun fan fiction. Katie Couric taking a shit in the middle of a party.

  3. katie couric’s friends also call her Assnuts.

  4. >the face of everyone at that party watching this:

  6. She should never have posed the rhetorical question of “Where do I go from here” to herself before the grande fete. The answer echoed sonorously off the intra-facial wiring:

    “Where all stars who have achieved their 15 minutes go. Dancing with the Stars. Start practicing.”

  7. I’d hit it.

  9. Why is she “backing it up” on no one in particular? I don’t know how “the kids” do it these days, but that’s not how I backed it up in the 1930s.

    • Actually I dont think she’s backing it up, because of the turned neck I think she’s aware nobody is behind her. I would say shes dropping it like its hot.

  10. Aw, there’s gotta be more than three of us!

  11. Static pictures of anyone dancing, regardless of race, will most likely look silly. Way to be a discriminating racist, Gabe. :|

  12. Is it the internet’s goal to not let anyone, anywhere get away with having a little fun? This is like making fun of my mom dancing.

  13. possible Newsweek cover?

  14. Clearly this viral photo is the work of Sarah Palin

  15. Girl you looks good, won’t you back that azz up?
    You’s a fine newcaster, won’t you back that azz up?
    Call me Dan Rather when you back that azz up?
    Ho, who is you playin wit? Back that azz up.

    And I’m not even one of the three!

  16. Isn’t this just a still from her on-air colonoscopy?

  17. Doesn’t everyone have one of these tagged on them on Facebook? Boo Internet. Choose better photo scandals.

  18. She’s on very thin ice.

  19. I’m not white

  20. I always find the white- non white disccusion weird. Since I don’t know where I fit in!

  21. That was definitely an off-putting aside to include, Gabe. You made me uncomfortable today. Commenting on the ethnic make-up of one’s audience is probably best left to the ventriloquists.

  22. I did not need to see this today… especially in such low resolution

  23. I think this picture makes me like Katie Couric more.

  24. I’m Jewish, where do I fit in this whole white/ not white thing? I’ll tell you this, I’d kick Katie Couric’s ass in a dance battle, does that make me one of the 3?

  25. I really think this post could have skipped past the race issue and gone right to robots. Robots was/are much stronger.

  26. “there is nothing more horrible than images of white people dancing”

    I dunno
    Black people trying to swim is kinda horrible to watch

    • and asian people crossing the street.

      Also, I want to take this moment and admit that I’m actually a white guy.
      Who definitely cannot jump. Or dance.

      • we are not saying things that are true. for example, i am black and i can swim. i know many asian people that can cross the street (is that even a real stereotype?) and justin timberlake is a white person that can dance.

  27. No apologies.
