Brit Happens


Set the Way-Back machine for just after September 11th, 2001.

Remember all that talk from the media -- and everyone else for that matter -- about how "everything had changed." "Things would never be the same." Our worship of all things trivial and fucking inane would be wiped clean by the blood of 3,000+.

Uh-huh.

Now watch NBC and Matt Lauer perform the journalistic equivalent of giving head in the bathroom of a bus-station by devoting an entire hour to a one-on-one interview with Britney Spears.

Best moment: Lauer asks her how she feels about some people calling her a "redneck" (because he can't say "white trash"), which is a hilarious question, given that she spends the entire hour loudly chewing gum.

Yep, the world is now a better place.

i have to disagree.

The defining moment was when Lauer asked her how many weeks pregnant she was...a traditional question that everyone who's not insane or a crack-addict knows.... and she responds....


"Ummm, I don't know. Six, maybe seven months." No shit.

No sheeeeet.

I believe this goes back to your previous post about class and how you can't buy it. Those of us that have grown up in Louisiana and are literate wouldn't mind her choking to death on said gum.
