Poorest Geek Ever

Thanks to my inside connections (a close personal friend with a VCR who can afford cable), I finally got to see an episode of Best Week Ever on VH1. Some thoughts:

  • Rachael Harris could not be any cuter. This is cold, hard fact. Coming up with a cuter entity is scientifically impossible. You could inject her with the essences of every adorable thing in your lifetime, from Strawberry Shortcake all the way through Boohbah (Olsen Twins inclusive), and you couldn't make her any cuter than she already is. She is the Cutiepitome. Also: Sex.

  • The Modern Humorist guys are almost as funny on TV as they were on the Internet. Take that however you want to take it.

  • Mo Rocca is pretty much stuck, huh? Good luck, Mo Rocca. Good luck to you.

  • As Whatevs points out, there's this new show about all the pop-cult shit that happened in the previous week, and not one word about Janet Jackson's floppy-ass titty? What? Oh. Right. Viacom. Never mind.

  • Dear Kennedy:

    Thank you for getting somebody to take your shift at Sunglass Hut. We appreciate the effort, but we won't be needing your services anymore.

    Signed,
    America

No offense to any of the bloggers that are involved with that show (whom I read and generally like), but it sorta kinda blows major ass. It's really beaten the talking head thing into the ground, even though Jessi Klein is so cute and sweet I want to mix her into my ice tea. You can have your Rachel Harris.
The whole thing reminds me of having dinner with a table full of stand up comics. They're funny for about five minutes, but after that you sorta kinda wish they could just pass the butter dish without riffing on the butter dish, ya know?

"And what's the DEAL with butter dishes, anyway?"

"You can have your Rachel Harris."

I know it's cool these days to act gay and everything, but... dude. Seriously.

Don't lash out at me because you don't have VH1. I'm so rich I have it playing on six TVs on my bathroom right now. The seventh TV is playing VH1 Classic.

Good call on Rachel Harris... though I must say Kennedy's gotten much better looking over the years as well.

A Google Image Search for "Rachel Harris" does not yield promising results. However, her headshot on her VH1 bio confirms that she's cute, but more importantly, that she's that girl from Reno 911.

Somebody actually gave Kennedy a job?

That google search probably failed because it's Rachael, not Rachel. And she is cute, but not like Natalie Imbruglia cute or anything.
