01 Apr Don’t You Get Paid to be Funny?
Apparently, Mr. Carrey felt humiliated by Fox News for making fun of an online video that he had made and felt the need to respond to their criticism by calling the network a “media colostomy bag.”
I’m gonna level with you Jimmy – I’ve always had a soft spot for you.
I usually find slapstick humor trivial and crude, but somehow, you had won my heart over the years.
But this? This is what you could come up with? You get paid an obscene amount of money to be funny and this is what you could come up with?
I’m almost more upset at the lack of humor in your insult than the insinuation you were trying to make about Fox News.
Ok – not really.
I’m pretty disappointed in your use of the ostomy.
To be honest – I’m usually not very sensitive to ostomy jokes. In fact, I make a ton of them myself and literally roll over in laughter when my friends make them, as well. I even have some pretty good ones, if I do say so myself. There are a ton of jokes that can be made about the ostomy in good taste and good faith and I do it all the time.
But this comment? This was not one of those.
This was one that had the intention to cause harm. And it framed this lifesaving surgery in a negative light. In the media. In front of millions of people.
So thanks, Mr. Carrey.
Now I’m going to have to be even more naked on the internet to show the good side of the bag.
On this note of ostomy awareness, I’d like to remind you guys that on Tuesday the 2nd we will be picking the winner of the “Where’s Your Ostomy” contest to be featured on the blog and FB page. Don’t forget to join the contest!
