This may be the funniest damn thing I have read in a long time…
Almost as funny as this, which I had forgotten about. Although I have to disagree with this:
On Second Thought… Triumph’s immortal moment was actually telling Simon Cowell, a guest on the show, that he had a better title for “American Idol.” Triumph suggested the title, “British HOMO.”
I think Triumph’s greatest moment was interviewing Jon Bon Jovi and finding out that bon Jovi was going to have a role in a John Carpenter Vampire movie, and Triumph remarked:
“Finally, a role that requires you to suck.”
The Star Trek guy killed me.
The clip where triumph went to one of the debates in ’04 was hilarious.
I also enjoyed when he interviewed Karl Rove in Spin Alley:
“Ah! Bush’s Brain! I was expecting a much smaller man!”
Miller, not funny. He reminds me of most of the people I have not liked in my life … people who think that rudeness is funny. You know, because a lot of times, funny is rude … and funny. But rude by itself, not funny.
From my 30,00 word essay on the topic: Rudeness is fine, I employ it all the time. Rudeness, good. However, if the goal is to be funny, rudeness, no good … by itself. Do you see the distinction? Rudeness, not funny. By itself. In high school, sure. But we grew up.
Miller knows as much about reality as he did about football, which is why he doesn’t have the football gig any more.
