Cry A Little . . . Laugh A Little . . .

The reaction from the audience speaks volumes . . .



I never used to think much of Kimmel, particularly because he always seemed, at best, "borderline homophobic." So I am not sure if he's actually becoming more tolerant (not just by this particular "funny," but also because he seems to be "getting it" in general, lately). Pandering to popular acceptance? Perhaps. But when I saw this, I could NOT stop laughing. First time the guy's been able to do that for me.

I just saw that clip on TV... I dunno, his "Man show" past makes it pretty hard to think of him approving of much besides getting drunk off bad beer, dwarf tossing, huge honkers, and heterosexual orgasms, but it was a clever bit.

Of course, the writers ARE back now...!

Excellent observation . . . the writers ARE back! LOL. Of course, his "man show" persona could also all have been a bunch of crap, but who knows? It sure made him an unappealing son of a bitch. HA!

Boy... trying to identify which part of The Man Show was real, and which was schtick... that would take a RAND study to figure out.

I have no doubt that Adam C. was just being himself.

Tess and I used to think Jimmy was just the goofy straight man... he was married after all, and pudgy. He seemed to be projecting the image of "Hey, I may be married, and I love my wife, but I can still 'think' with my genitals. My wedding tackle might be locked away, but my mind isn't wearing a chastity belt." (Not that this is unique to "breeders" mind you.)

But when he divorced his wife after using her for fodder on his show for years- that got us thinking maybe he was as shallow and misogynistic as his comrade.

So why would anyone want to fuck Matt Damon OR Ben Affleck when Vincent is in the world?

SnarkAngel said...

Precisely, Val. Precisely! I am watching "Naked Tango," as I type.

OMG, you people are my lifeline. I had heard all about this and had not seen it. Funny, funny, funny. That they got Josh Groban involved just made it priceless.

Oooooooooooooo! Have to disagree with you there...if Matt said the word I'd be under his kilt quicker than a hungry poodle under the dinner table!
