someone had to say it.

thank you, debbie stoller, for putting words to the deep sensation of disgust that i feel whenever i am faced with that grease stain on the pop-culture pan, adam corolla.

"Adam Corolla, with his perpetual show-me-your-tits sneer, giant Pez-like teeth, and dude-fro that make him resemble a Brady brother missing link. Adam Corolla, so much of whose schtick involves discussing what does or does not make a woman sexually attractive. Hey Adam, people who live in ass houses shouldn't throw stones. If there was a woman as unattractive as Adam Corolla on television, she'd probably be the first on his list of people to ridicule. But of course, there would never be a woman as unattractive as Adam Corolla on television, because unattractive women aren't allowed on TV. And if, by some miracle, there was an unattractive woman on TV, she'd be playing 'the unattractive woman.' She certainly wouldn't be given her own late-night talk show, let alone two TV shows at the same time."

you know, back in the day when he was on loveline with dr. drew, i found him merely annoying- like a hangnail, or a tiny little fly that keeps bobbing around just outside your line of vision. and then the man show debuted, and my hatred offically began. the man show, jesus christ. news flash - every show is the man show! get off it already!

you know what, i'm not even going to expend my energy on this right now. i could spend three hours pontificating about why both adam corolla and jimmy kimmel should be locked in a closet for the rest of their earthly lives, but i won't.

but seriously, what is sarah silverman thinking??

Roseanne had a show, and a talk show...of course she was endearing when she sang and grab her crotch and spat...

Lara Flynn Boyle, on The Practice, now that was just nasty, she needed that "biggie, super-size" meal...

But your point is well taken, celebrity has nothing to do with talent, or even sometimes looks...

oh man, roseanne ruled. if there was even one other show on the air that held a candle to roseanne right now, i would do a little dance of joy.

*gives kate.d. a skeptical look*...
Roseanne?

Oh yeah, Sally Jesse Raphael is another one...well, maybe she was attractive I don't know, I can't get past the glasses and the bad tv...

John Stossel...definite bastard...

*sigh*...There isn't much good tv anymore...of course I don't think tv really was that good to begin with...I do like Boston Legal, and Scrubs...satire and absurdity, gotta love it...

Oh, yeah, Tom Arnold is a tool...

look for a future post with 14 reasons why roseanne ruled. i am totally serious here!

and i will limit it to roseanne the show, because roseanne the person is a whole 'nother story.

I can only say that I totally agree. Firstly on the Adam Corrolla thing (he makes me physically ill) and secondly on the Roseanne thing.

I'm trying to remember if I ever saw anything objectional or down right annoying on Roseanne (like you said, the show, not the woman). I stopped watching before the show ended, but really all I can remember is down to earth (sort of) real life stuff.
