  1. Who, then, is the baby-daddy to those eight strapping young Kochs? Does the Octomom porno feature a scene where Scalia disrobes?

    Otherwise, you’d think with a name like Harden he’d have a future in porn, but no, he’s too busy being all heart.

    The infant Koch brothers: by far the most disturbing image I’ve seen…um, in a day or so.

    But do you really find Ricky Gervais funny as fuck? I know a lot of people do, but I’m indifferent to him.

      I thought The Office was at times genuinely inspired and hilarious. But also with a mean-spirited edge that I could never quite get over. I think he’s proven since then that the edge wasn’t all acting. Or even half. I give The Office credit for reviving the mockumentary, or at least that it birthed the documenting of the Presumably Uninteresting as a new genre…..but in between the genuine laughs I found it mostly to be in the Borat camp, which I don’t find funny at all, and in fact seems gleefully cruel.

      On the other hand, few things have any laughs at all.

    Oh man, I LOVE The Office (BBC version). I didn’t think it was mean at all. In fact, I generally found it rather sweet, but with some of THE most uncomfortable moments ever. It’s absolutely mental.

    I love Portlandia too, at least the episodes I’ve seen.

    Sean, I fear that I’m just far enough out of touch with pop culture that I don’t have a clue about “mean as fuck”, the lung thing, and Stanis. I had to google Emerson.

    I’ll keep trying though!
