I was trying to avoid this because all I do is talk about Conan O’Brien all the time, but it seems like Bruno’s appearance on “The Tonight Show” last night (video below) is the big story today. I like Sacha Baron Cohen, and I’ll probably go see Bruno and think it’s really funny, but I’m over him constantly being in character. This happened with Borat, too. He went on all the late-night talk shows in character and told the same jokes and I was sick of Borat before I even saw the movie (which, of course, was hilarious).
Anyway, I don’t know what my point is. I’m just kind of grumpily rambling incoherently like Andy Rooney. “In my day you could appreciate a man’s body without being gay. And people who were actually gay had the good sense to pretend not to be. Gay used to mean happy. But all gay men seem to be happy, so I think it still works. Is this paint thinner or vodka?”
