So Adam McKay called up Paris Hilton after John McCain used her as an example of a dumb celebrity in his ad and was like “Hey come do a video for our website, we will write the words and you’ll read them off cards in your backyard.” The thing about self-deprecating humor, though, is you have to think of it yourself. If you make fun of yourself without knowing it, it doesn’t count. Have writers or don’t have writers, whatever, but don’t obviously have writers writing things for you where the entire joke is based on you actually being dumb:

The takeaway is: Paris Hilton is as dumb as someone can be while still being able to read, and Adam McKay has her phone number.

    Yeah.. definitely not funny at all. Also wasn’t the White House originally pink, until Canada burned it to the ground or something. McCain would probably remember this.

    Thank you!!! I hear so many people saying it was so funny & good for her. SHE READ QUE CARDS!!!! It was barely funny & her delivery was stale & boring. She was reading people, she didn’t come up with the words herself. Lame
