Let's Go To Italy!

The mysterious Lil' Bit from the Hall Of Mirrors sent me a story comparing an Italian talk show host with a US talk show host. Here's the Italian:

and here's the US competitor:

And we wonder why we're slipping as a superpower. I couldn't understand a word of the first show but I gurantee I'd find it entertaining. For at least 7 minutes.

WHAT? You don't find Rosie's do-rag sexy?

That first lady's dress made shiver. It's so cold here today in the warehouse that the thought of having to wear a dress like that physically hurts. NOT that I would ever wear a dress like that to peddle trophies as I think it would be a little bit, er....or not quite enough....whatever.

You'd sell a ton of trophies if you did. Every guy running a Little League would be linig up outside your store.

Thanks. No, seriously- thanks.

Call me a perv, but I'll take hot host over "substance" any day.

I just threw up in my head. *gag*

I need to go back and put the first host back in my brain.

Hell! I think she could be hosting 'Meet the Nation' and it'd still be entertaining.

That's just not right.
I say a fair and accurate comparison!!!

Why is it okay for a woman to show everything but nip and yet if a man went around with his balls hanging out he would be arrested?

Me no likey these double-standards.

Wait, did I just advocate more visable balls?

hmm, how about more visable penises. Or is it peni?
What ever, I want to see more dicks. All I'm sayin'.

Maybe I don't deserve to watch the first lady until I make a LOT more money, drive a fancy car, and have a chiseled body.

Maybe I don't want to work for all of those things, so perhaps I only deserve to watch Rosie O'Donnell.

However, maybe Rosie O'Donnell prefers the company of other women to Yours Truly.

So maybe, ultimately, I am only worthy of the other Rosie, and only in that case because of the bonds of attachment.

And so here I sit with MY Rosie, watching the other one, and imagining how that "Do-Rag" could prove handy later on in the broadcast.

Tysgirl, oh, you're more than welcome my little KY fan.

Zoe, I knew I liked you for a reason.

Eclectic, It's easy, and so is the host! Or was that your point?

Signgurl, the forearms aren't getting it done for you?

Maggie, she could host my funeral and I'd try to get on stage.

Rhonda, what's not right? Should I have airbrushed Rosie? And no Tysgirl, that's not a euphemism so don't even start.

PG, listen, last time I tried to please the audience by putting up a shot of Christian Bale I took endless shit for it. No way am I going the dick route.

Pug, I can only hope the broadcast of which you speak isn't "pay-per-view", as most men would go broke in a week.

I think I just popped a blood vessel trying to keep from making an inappropriate comment regarding you "airbrushing" Rosie.

Why. WHY must you make it so difficult for me to be good?

Blogger limpy99 said...

See, that's why I threw in the euphemism disclaimer, to keep you in good health. Because I care about my readers.

For the record, I wouldn't airbrush Rosie with Bea Arthur's dick.

who said anything about dick? For that job I'm pretty sure you'd need a hose ;)

Although I am all for seeing peni on your blog, I just meant in general. You know, girls show cleveage, guys can show peniage while I am going about my day.

Although potentially dangerous and humiliating in the winter months, could prove interesting in the summer months.

I know I've been gone for a few days...I think this whole string just really hurt my head. And PG...for more dick, do a search for German talk shows, several times I have found one (can't remember the name to save my soul) that every male guest decides to show his dick. Best's all in English. American musicians are the best for full frontals.

Who the hell would listen to the first chick. Hell, I didn't even read your post cause I couldn't get past her rack.

Uggghhhh! That picture of Rosie is sickening!

Blogger limpy99 said...

RSG, tits. That was pretty much it.

Tysgirl, and not the garden variety either.

Tai, ///

PG, only if they're constantly erect. Otherwise you could wind up with buyer's remorse.

Pixie, then my job is done.

JTE, I am making a mental note not to look for German talk shows. PG, on the other hand, is bookmarking them.

CP, I'm sure she has no trouble getting guests for her show, and I'm equally sure none of her guests could tell you what color her eyes are.

Pud, look up! Look up!
