Snark Fest: The Sequel

Oh, to be a snarky Brit, who doesn't give a poop what people think.  Oh, to be Ricky Gervais.  Tonight, I'll tune in again to watch him on "The Golden Globes" and pick up some pointers.  Where would the SJG be today had I been snarkier?  It's never too late to get my Ricky on.  Here's what he told reporters the other day, when asked if he felt nervous about hosting the Globes: "No. What's the worst that can happen? I end my career once a week if you read the press. I do things that could end my career now. That's my extreme sport. If you get fun with it, which I do and I demand, and you get your own way and are happy with what you've done, then nothing can happen to you. You're bulletproof. Everything I say, I can justify it, I can stand by it, as I do every joke I did last year, then I don't care. I don't care if you're offended. I'm going to do a monologue about what happened during the year, and then introduce six or seven people as I did last year. I've got nothing against any of those people in the room. I've worked with many of them. I like many of them. I admire them. They're just gags. I'm not trying to hurt anyone's feelings or give them a bad night or undermine the moral fabric of America. I'm a comedian." Oh, to be Ricky Gervais, who has nothing to lose.  It probably helps that he's very, very rich.


  1. The best part will be the celebs who try to fight back Ricky with their own witty comments which are no where as funny as Ricky's insults. I know you are Ricky but what am I? Hello adding insult to injury!

    1. I thought Robert Downey Jr. did a great job last year. I bet this time, the celebs will be well-prepared.
