Can You Believe What Happened On TV Last Night?

So was the world, gathered around their TV sets last night asking the same question that I was?

How the hell did this tubby from Teen Wolf (standing behind Michael J. Fox) run down the basketball court more than once without fainting?



See what I did there? You thought I was going to mention the Grammy Awards, then all of a sudden I sneak in a question about Teen Wolf that was also on TV last night. I got you there didn't I?

I did watch a bit of the Grammy Awards but that freestyle rap nonsense* is something I can't take. Seriously, I'm convinced they could pull any homeless dude off of the street and he could babble the same junk on stage and nobody would know the difference.

Do we all at least agree on that?

*The absolute worst is that dope Kanye West.

Kanye is a SERIOUS artist...but I'm with you on the homeless guy thing.

Tenakim said...

agree with you about the chunky dude and the homeless guy! I am usually a award show junkie, but didn't even turn it on- for much the smae reasons!

Susan said...

Oh.My.God. I swear my husband and I had this on last night for 45 minutes at least laughing our asses off. How did I miss this when I was young? I was totally deprived.

Dr Zibbs said...

Susan - didn't the convent that you grew up in have a TV?

I would tell you that I think all rap sucks balls, but I wouldn't want to sound like my dad talking about rock.

Rachel said...

LOL!

And yes, we agree.

i can no longer sit thru the grammy's and im quickly approaching critical mass on sitting thru the 4 hour oscars...

I never watch the Whammys. I thought about checking it out in the hopes that Radiohead would be on when I decided to flip it on and instead I was warned that Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift were going to sing together. Not even the promise of Radiohead could keep me tuned in to that mess.

I simply cannot stomach awards shows. Blech.

Andrew Rodriguez said...

Didn't that guy go on to steal Pee-Wee's Bicycle? (And Kanye doesn't care about real music)

B.E. Earl said...

And after he stole Pee Wee's bike, didn't he become a conservative radio talk show host?

Seriously...he looks like Rush.

Dr Zibbs said...

Andrew - Yes. He was pretty funny in it too.

BE Earl - Great call!

We don't have T.V.
Well, we have t.v.s, but we're not hooked up. (sniff, sniff)

My word verification, seriously, is kingion, as in "you have just entered the kingion of Dr. Zibbs".

words words words said...

Not only did he go on to steal Pee-Wee's bike as Francis, but he may have had the most well-known one line performance in movie history:

"Hey, it's Enrico Palazzo!"

I got sucked into the Grammys because U2 was playing. I should have turned it off after they were done. (Although Al Green was spectacular as always.)

Michelle said...

Love

P.S. Radiohead dude!!!

Chele said...

Miss Alex said...

That tub of lard was Frances on Pee Wee's big adventure... yeah i'm young.. sue me...

Megan said...

I totally forgot about the Grammys but I am not at all sad about it.

Sass said...

I just bought Teen Wolf and Teen Wolf Two on one DVD for $4.75 at Target.

I have no idea why.

I shouldn't go to Target after drinking wine.

All I saw was some woman, looking like she was 9 months pregnant, prancing around the stage. I guess she was past her due date and desperate to get the ball rolling.

I am still under the impression that some time a while back, when ordering a production run of Grammy statues, someone seriously fucked up on a decimal point or 3, and the storage of the overstock is killing them, so they have to give the damn things away like "Teen Wolf 3: This Time, Teenier!" DVDs. Don't believe me? Explain "Record of the Year" vs. "Album of the Year". And note that they were all CDs, not "records" or "albums".

And, Dr. Zibbs, since they didn't want the "Teen Wolf" crowd to think that MJF transmuting into an Ewok was odd, they tossed in other fantasy elements, like the fat kid running the court and leading the "fats break". But I get the basketball scenes in "Teen Wolf" and "Hoosiers" mixed up in my brain a lot, so I could be WAAAY off.

Just for informational purposes, because that's what I'm here for...


Album of the Year = Best album

Record of the Year = Best single (performer's award)

Song of the Year = Best single (songwriter's award)

Dr Zibbs said...

"Tub of Lard". Haven't heard that one in a while.

Question: How did fatty run up and down the court more than once without fainting.

Answer: Steroids. Everyone's doing it!
