Big Dumb Animal


Thanks to Votar for making me realize how much NBC's Dick Ebersol resembles "Harry" from Harry and the Hendersons.


Of course Harry strikes me as being quite a bit smarter than Ebersol and he was the linchpin of at least one production audiences actually seemed to enjoy.

As for what they have in common: The humanity of each remains only the stuff of myth.

Hmmmm....is he the missing link?

Proving once again, some people are more aptly named than others.

What a Richard!

Why does Ebersol even care?

VOTAR said...

It's like looking at those comedy/drama masks side by side.

VOTAR said...

I mean, seriously, I thought I had a big forehead.



That's like a eight-head, at least.


It's like God was drunk at the keyboard when he photoshopped that man's DNA.

HA! Votar! you're amazing.

Maybe he has a prosthetic forehead on his real head, like the ones They Might Be Giants wanted to go with their rock and string. In which case we probably shouldn't criticize Dick for living the dream.

Throw the crib door wide, Dick. Throw it wide, and don't let the haters burn your forehead down.

Sorry Chez, but this fella still has to find ways to make money at the end of the day. I respect that part of this guy. The part I don't respect is that he's part of the Hollyweird machine that peddles filth.
The truth is that these late night show hosts are all bad.I would stay up and watch TV if they would re-run Baywatch, Benson, Mr. Belvedere, Charles In Charge....

Wasn't he in a plane accident a few years back? And lost a son in that crash?

Sorry, but he gets a bus pass with me for that.

But, yeah...he looks like that creature thing.

You should post that on Totally Looks Like: http://totallylookslike.com/

Chez said...

Yeah, Blackbird -- Ebersol lost his kid and that's a tragedy I'd never make fun of. It doesn't change the fact that he's a real prick for saying what he did, though (which proves by the way that the crash didn't alter his personality in the least, not that it was necessarily supposed to), and he shouldn't get a pass for it. He put himself out there in the most egregiously abrasive manner possible, and I'm sorry but the fact that he endured something no parent should have to doesn't buy him amnesty for the rest of his life.

Chez said...

Ebersol prides himself on being a take-no-prisoners kind of guy. Well, none taken.

blackbird said...

Sorry, I spent my day with a bunch of 7 yr olds....and you didn't post a link to what it is that Ebersol said. Or perhaps you did, just not with the photos above.

Chez said...

Sorry, yeah, it's four posts below this one.

blackbird said...

**sheepish looking around***

Bus pass REVOKED.

blackbird said...

..."sheepishLY looking around".

Even though no one else gives a shit, must correct.

Chez, you were perfectly imitating Canadian there with your "Sorry...". Thanks for not saying, "Idiot - it's four (or five, who's counting?) posts below this one!"

It's ironic in some ways that a corporate talking head like Ebersol used to be Executive Producer of Saturday Night Live in the early 1980s. There he was, defending the right of comedians. Nowadays, he shits on their faces.

Fuck you Dick, you prick.

BTW, Chez, thanks for letting us swear a lot on here.

Dude, how dare you.

Everyone knows that Harry does indeed have humanity. Did you not see the magic between him and John Lithgow? The concept of how you could look into those beady eyes and not see the intelligent being within makes me shudder.

I cannot take such flagrant disrespect of an American INSTITUTION.

Good day, sir.

I SAID GOOD DAY!!!!!

Now can Ebersol also be bitchslapped by John Lithgow and told to go away for his own good?
