Hear no Evil

So yesterday I told Michele about MTV's new show Punk'd starring Ashton Kutcher which is basically a candid camera for celebrities who have so far included among others, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Osborne, Eliza Dushku, Mandy Moore, Wilmer Valderrama, and Kevin Richardson. Now while I find this show damn funny, frequently I have to look away as I feel so embarrassed for those who are the butt of Mr. Kutcher's joke.

But so yesterday after I told Michele about the show and vaguely fascinated her with its purpose, I'm flipping by MTV and what do I see but a clip for Punk'd airing that night playing a prank on none other than Mr. Seth Green. Now since Michele has said that she is more than willing to have his love child I thought she might want to watch and so I immediately called her. During the commercial break while the show aired she called me and said, "Why are they being so mean to him? He's so cute and little why are they being mean? Why? And why is it normal for them to be playing craps in some hotel?" I giggled at the show and giggled at Michele and had a good all round fun time.

But then I thought what if others don't know about this show. They're missing out on some car smashing, house destruction, cop busts, house repossession and all around star panic, frustration, fear and shock. It's great fun. So now I've told you.

And in case you didn't check out the photobooth pictures I linked above here are some of my favorite:

you should make him tape them for you. But really they'll probably be re runned for ever and so eventually when you have tv you'll get to see it.

I can't speak for the others, but pre-seth I was busy drooling over archie comics.

Ummm... I like pasty, sarcastic redheads. I couldn't tell you why, really. And "Punk'd" is hy-sterical.

Why not just come out and admit this is all just suppress'd lust for Docta V, everyone's favorite pasty r'dhead? You afraid he's going to get a swell'd h'ad?

heh heh ehmm.... no, seriously.

That missing 'e' thing is rather silly. That's why I was always opposed to the band "Stain'd" - just on principle. The quality/lack thereof of their music is a totally irrelevant factor. Why can't they just have an e? Then I would at least listen before I condemned them as trash.

Maybe it's like a carryover from Shakespearean times, and without the apostrophe overly proper speakers might refer to the band as "Stain-ED"

A few lines from the Bard's lost work, "The Merchant of Nookie":

Why dost thou play "It's been a while" so much?
The DJ's playlist too strict to risk it
Thus see how Stain'd has ris'n atop the charts
Through the fine tutelage of Limp Bizkit
