Poop you, Jimmy Kimmel!

24 Sep

My daughter claims I am a fashion criminal, but that didn’t stop her from watching the glittery dress parade Emmy Awards with me last night. While I folded laundry, she did her best Joan Rivers impersonation, declaring Clare Danes’ dress looked like a trash bag and Julianne Moore’s was too tight. Sophia Vergara got a thumbs up, but Ginnifer Goodwin and Amanda Plumber didn’t pass my daughter’s muster.

Between spangles, we put up with Jimmy Kimmel’s witless banter, until he dropped an A-bomb.

In one of those stupid so-funny segments the writers insert to keep the broadcast entertaining, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, who plays Lily in Modern Family, was featured pranking the rest of the cast in “Lily is a Monster.” Never mind that the skit is supposed to be about Aubrey’s misbehavior. Take a look:

Following the bit, which I found forced and humorless, Kimmel said, “That would make a good public service announcement for adoption.”

My daughter recoiled. There are lots of things you want to see your kid do, like ride a bike for the first time, wear a gown and mortarboard for kindergarten graduation, lose a first tooth. But recoiling? My breath caught, then she responded:

“Poop you, Fat Guy!”

Poop you, indeed, Kimmel and Poop you, writers for the predictable segment and ugly, scripted comment. Most of all, Poop you, ABC, for hiring the writers and Kimmel both.

    Too few think before they speak. Funny doesn’t trump integrity.

      (Not that it was funny to begin with. It wasn’t.)

        I didn’t think anything he did or said was funny. Thanks for reading!

    I have always despised Jimmy Kimmel. I don’t understand his popularity because he’s just not funny. NOT FUNNY.

      You, Madame, are correct! Did you watch the show? He thought it would be really funny to have Tracy (?) Morgan lie on the stage for a while. As in lie down, not tell untruths. It was so stupid and NOT FUNNY.

    Yeah, I don’t get it either. How did Ben Steins sidekick get so far in life?

      I didn’t realize he was Ben Stein’s sidekick. But, there are so many things in life that I didn’t realize.

        Yeah, he was the “other guy” on Win Ben Stein’s Money, that was on Comedy Central a few years ago.

    What he said was so tasteless. I really don’t get the appeal of Jimmy Kimmel at all. Or Sarah Silverman, for that matter.

      Tina Fey was funnier in two minutes than Jimmy Kimmel was all night.
