Question: aren’t celebrities supposed to at least pretend they think it’s funny when somebody makes jokes about them in an award-show kind of setting? Because Danica and boytoy don’t seem to have gotten that message:
Ha! Does this fire-retardant suit make me look fat? She’s not used to being this close to the front! That, as we in the business like to say, is good stuff.
I especially like the part where Mohr thanks the director for cutting to shots of people in the audience who aren’t laughing, which seems to be just Danica and boytoy.
UPDATE - yes, I know he’s got a name. I just can’t remember it right now.
Ann Althouse asks, before also asking:
You just need heads. Which heads would look best on a pike?
Man, I look good anywhere.
Ann used the wrong picture, by the way.
Oh, stop. Of course they’re not: they’re trying to save the oceans! They just accidentally called their website “Fishlove” and had people pose in…well, interesting positions with what I assume are a bunch of stuffed fish.
I have to assume that, see, because otherwise I’d have to ask: did any of these fish survive the photoshoot that was supposed to help save them?
There’s nothing fishy about Gillian Anderson’s love of sea life.
The “X-Files” alum is so devoted to the underwater world that she stripped bare for a campaign to stop the destruction of the ocean. But it’s quite a photo because she uses an eel — yes, an eel! — to cover up her lady bits.
I know what you’re thinking: eeew. Slimy! Which makes me wonder: is this eel actually alive? And if so, did it survive the photoshoot? Under all those lights, and the handling, and the being out of water?
Eels, by the way, can survive for significant amounts of time out of water, or so my usual (5 minutes) of internet research appears to conclude.
But that wasn’t the only photo taken for the shoot, which:
The photo project was done for the organization Fishlove and included some other U.K.-based celebrities posing in the buff with critters ranging from bass fish to sharks. Its goal is to raise awareness of how overfishing is destroying the oceans.
Bass and sharks. Guess what? They can’t survive out of water.
Did they use already-dead fish for this? And if so, what was the buffet table like after? Or are those even real fish? Now that I’ve written that, it sure seems more likely that they’re not. That they’re fake, or at least stuffed.
Which would seem to make this blog post ridiculous, so let’s ignore that option. Here, be temporarily distracted:
That’s Maia Norman, some kind of fashion designer who was married to a really famous British artist once, I take it.
And, come to think of it, just handling the occasional smallmouth bass is hard enough. They flop. No way that fish is alive, if it was ever even a real fish.
As I mentioned earlier, the project is called “Fishlove.” Because just posing with dead fish isn’t creepy enough. There’s a Facebook page, which I link here because, why should the NSA have evidence that we all googled the term “fish love?”
Go ahead, click through those pictures. Caution: minor nudity warning. And please note that, when they say “Fishlove,” they’re not being entirely metaphorical.
If Democrats really want the GOP to rip itself apart, wouldn’t the fastest way to get there be: rip themselves apart first?
Think about it. Aren’t we pulled together by a common enemy? Maybe we don’t all want what the social, or libertarian, or big-business factions of the GOP want. The neo-cons, proto-cons, nano-cons, whatever kind of cons. But whatever they want, it’s still better than what the Democrats want.
We may not like each other, but we like the Democrats less!
So if the Democrats want to watch the GOP rip itself to shreds, their best bet is to get out of the way. Disappear for a while. Give us the keys, and watch the magic happen!
That’s why when I see all the stories like this one:
Democratic strategist Al From says the problems with the government’s new online health insurance market threaten to undermine the Democratic Party’s case for government.
“It sure makes it a lot harder for people to support new government initiatives,” said From, who is largely credited with shaping Bill Clinton’s successful presidential campaign in 1992. “And if it doesn’t work, then good intentions are not enough.”
I think: they’re not screwing up… they’re trying to destroy the GOP!
Come to think of it, that’s probably why the Obamacare rollout went so poorly. Too many out-of-work Republicans purposely failing to enroll online!
When is money dark? When somebody gives it to a conservative.

Note #2: I have never heard Lisa Graves call anyone a wife-beater or a racist, either directly or through innuendo. Nor can I categorically state that she has not done these things. But, come on. Knowing what we all know about political operatives in general, and liberal political operatives in slightly-less-general…come on.
