Department of Unfortunate Timing

From Hot Tipper Brad:

I don’t know if you watched MadTV this past weekend but there was a skit set in a university class where one student gets incredibly agitated and freaks out when people laugh at what “comedy” shows he thinks are funny. So he says, “Fine, I’m going home to my house where I live with my mother and I’m going to go into the basement to the cot where I sleep behind the washer and dryer and I’m going to get my automatic submachine gun and come back in an hour and herd you into a classroom and blow off your heads.” And he comes back, only to find that everyone is still there, despite his warning, so he gets ready to kill them, but they’re saved by the fact that it’s time for How I Met Your Mother and the gunman goes home. This wasn’t a repeat, either. SPOOOOOOKY.

This is exactly why How I Met Your Mother must be renewed (that and Neil Patrick Harris).

last weekend's SNL digital short was also heavy on the humorous gun violence (a parody of the second season finale of the O.C.).

I had NO idea back in the day that Doogie was going to end up being so freakin hot. I could, however, tell he was gonna be a mo.

I wonder if VA shooter dude watched MadTV this weekend?

go out...
read a book....
get drunk...

do anything to avoid having to watch late night Saturday night tv shows....
they're just not that good and have been responsible for the near destruction of American comedy...

MadTV is still on? I think that's the creepiest bit.
