The crowd was the best. My favorite part of this whole thing was when the judge complained that the women in the crowd formed an “unruly mob” by cheering and shouting to keep the bill from passing in time. Yeah, LADIES. Shut up and let the MEN pass a bill about your bodies!
This is all true, but I do think in this instance Carr wasn’t complaining that the Onion was apologizing for the joke. I think the issue was more that the joke was very in keeping with the general satiric tone of everything The Onion says and does, but this one upset people, so now the higher-ups at the Onion are trying to distance themselves from the person who wrote it. (Saying it’s not in line with what they usually do and saying that the individuals responsible will be punished.) I’m guessing Carr’s point is that if the Onion is going to be apologetic it should be an actual “WE apologize for OUR mistake” and not “WE apologize for THAT GUY’S mistake.” I know the CEO said the tweet was inconsisent with their nornal satire standards or whatever, but in all honesty it wasn’t. It’s The Onion! I love it, but they put out semi-offensive to offensive stuff all the time.
So this one’s tough, because I think what Carr wants is either for them to not apologize at all, or apologize for everything and anything they have ever done as a group. Which is impossible.
COMEDY! Everyone loses!
I like it! I sometimes feel like I’m forcing myself to laugh, but this week was pretty good.
I do think they should drop the midwife stuff though.
Also, while I’m here (hello!) I watched the first episode of 1600 Penn and really liked it, which was surprising! The opening scene was perfect and anything Martha MacIssac does ever will have my support. It might even beat out Ben & Kate as my favorite first-year comedy if it keeps up the pace.
Really hope we get a flashback video to just what went down when he was 9 that taught him life was a war.
My guesses: either James, Mike getting glasses, the actual war, or James again.
I feel like, “Oh, by the way, this was a hidden camera” might factor into their relationship more than once.
Right??? When that blonde lady was like “all terrorists are Muslim, that is just a FACT!” I bonked my head on my laptop so hard I may need medical assistance. I would be totally willing to listen to these coconuts (haha, just kidding, they are human nightmares) but they don’t even know what they’re talking about!
Victoria Jackson: “I’ve noticed that they have dead eyes…” Better than having a dead brain, sweetie.
Ugh, I just hate all of these ladies. GO TO BED.
Show Me your Genitals makes me laugh every time, but I also like Humpday. I am not proud.
“You may be wondering why I’m filming this in a lavender field…”
Yep. My only question for sure. You nailed it, Kathy!
