Not only is Tina Fey hilarious, she always implements perfect use of the word dumdum which I admire endlessly. Viva Tina!
“Dear Internet” by Tina Fey
From PerezHilton.com/Posted by jerkstore on Wednesday, 1/21/2009, 11:21 P.M.
“In my opinion Tina Fey completely ruined SNL. The only reason she’s celebrated is because she’s a woman and an outspoken liberal. She has not a single funny bone in her body.”
Huzzah for the Truth Teller! Women in this country have been over-celebrated for too long. Just last night there was a story on my local news about a “missing girl,” and they must have dedicated seven or eight minutes to “where she was last seen” and “how she might have been abducted by a close family friend,” and I thought, “What is this, the News for Chicks?” Then there was some story about Hillary Clinton flying to some country because she’s secretary of state. Why do we keep talking about these dumdums? We are a society that constantly celebrates no one but women and it must stop! I want to hear what the men of the world have been up to. What fun new guns have they invented? What are they raping these days? What’s Michael Bay’s next film going to be?
When I first set out to ruin SNL, I didn’t think anyone would notice, but I persevered because—like you trying to do a nine-piece jigsaw puzzle—it was a labor of love.
I’m not one to toot my own horn, but I feel safe with you, jerkstore, so I’ll say it. Everything you ever hated on SNL was by me, and anything you ever liked was by someone else who did it against my will.
P.S. You know who does have a funny bone in her body? Your mom every night for a dollar.”
If you don’t watch Modern Family that’s too bad because this award winning comedy lives up to its reputation every Wednesday night. The entire cast is terrific but each episode seems to have a stand out moment for one character, and last night we saw actor (and Culver City resident) Ty Burrell display his comedic chops with a running joke about a book of life lessons he created called Phil’s-osophy. This often dim-witted but always cheerful and naively optimistic man wants to share his wisdom with the world, and his daughter who is heading off to college.
I’m pretty sure ABC will have to come out with an actual, physical book now that they’ve presented this idea to the public, but in the meantime here are a few gems from the episode to keep Phil’s wisdom close to you.
More from Phil’s-osophy:
- You only get one chance at a first impression. I suggest Julia Child because it’s easy to do.
- The most amazing things that can happen to a human being will happen to you if you just lower your expectations.
- Dance until your feet hurt. Sing until your lungs hurt. Act until you’re William Hurt.
- Take a lesson from parakeets: If you’re ever feeling lonely, eat in a front of a mirror.
- Never be afraid to reach for the stars because even if you fall, you’ll always be wearing a Parentchute™.
- Watch a sunrise at least once a day.
- If you’re ever in a jam, a crayon scrunched up under your nose makes a good pretend mustache.
Because this incorporates two things I love very much - bacon and laughing.
