    Comedy Central roasting Justin Beiber. In the past, you only roasted those you like, love, respect. This "entertainer" has done nothing of great merit. I read that he begged CC to roast him. Sheesh.

    Like his music or not, he is definitely an entertainer. Do you have millions of girls screaming for you? Dont think so. He has squadrons of fans who love him and his music. Just because you find him annoy doesnt mean he hasnt earned his way to where he is.

    You missed the entire point of roasting an entertainer. You have to like, love, and/or respect him. Also, he BEGGED for Comedy Central to roast him. That's like nicknaming yourself.

    His fan-base skews heavily under 18, and will NOT be allowed to the taping. He's going to be ripped to shreds, and not in the Dean Martin/Friars Club way.

    This post could be aimed at numerous people, but since you were the last one hating on Bieber you get to be singled out.:p

    What is it that you are envious of to the point of hating on him? Is it his good hair? His youth? His millions? The fact that hot young chicks are screaming his name and would throw their nubile young bodies at him?

    I neither like nor respect him myself because quite frankly, I have no opinion of him whatsoever. Why? Because I'm not in his demographic. His music/swagger/ lifestyle aren't for me or aimed at me. Actually I find it more than a bit creepy when middle aged men have any thoughts on young boys that aren't their sons!:eek: But I guess that's just me. I'm weird that way.

    Yeah, I think that you can fairly say that there's an aspect of this to which Comedy Central has taken the entire concept and put it on its own head, at least just with respect to the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts and from the point of view of comparing the overall stature of some of Martin's subjects (Muhammed Ali, Sinatra, Reagan, Jimmy Stewart, etc...) versus most of Comedy Central's (Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump, Hasselhoff, etc...). And to mention certain controversial participants as well (e.g., Mike Tyson) who're also somewhat roasted, by way of introduction.

    Which, I guess, is their way of perfecting or otherwise improving upon the original concept: i.e., Lots of people are not so comfortable with laughing at the expense of someone they actually respect & admire. Much less a bona-fide cultural icon. So, putting a less sympathetic figure in that place means that, practically, the jokes can be a bit "meaner," more cutting, and therefore, ultimately, more funny...

    You nailed it. He's still a kid as far as i'm concerned and I wonder what I would do if I had that fame or money at that age. Hello debauchery!

    This was hilarious from SNL this past weekend.

    No phone or network access at work means I can't do any work. Not being able to sleep means it's going to be a very long day at work.

    Our wedding ceremony is in 8 days. It will be at the Renaissance Faire.

    My mother bought the same dress I will be wearing, purple instead of red, and will be wearing it at the ceremony. I asked her not to and she's still wearing it.

    WHAT THE EFF

    Seriously sounds like she wants the attention, is it possible to change your dress or perhaps embellish yours somehow to make you the stand out as you should be....


    it is very disrespectful of her I feel for you rock and a hard place I would say you could always tell her if she wears the same dress she is uninvited but I dont want to cause you more dramas





    Ugh soo long story short my Niece was bemoaning the fact we do not really do anything for Australia day and that chrissy has been getting more an more dismal so I said why dont you and your bf come over here and we can hang out watch movies and stuff

    anyway we both felt like I should ask my sister who pretty much says NO to anything I ask her to do (I mean she still has not taken me out for my 40th birthday in October!!!)

    And much to both our shock she said yes. I swear she must have been listening to our conversations cause she was laughing when I asked her.

    So that has made a ton of work for me 2 people who are not so picky not a drama 4 people 2 of whom are picky re what they eat and stuff sigh another grocery order later

    and lots of work still ahead and I am wondering how I got hoodwinked into this....

    I have a cold. It's annoying the hell out of me. If my nose isn't stopped up, it's running. Or, I'm sneezing. Thank you, Dear Husband for passing this along to me (sarcasm). And cold medicine knocks me on my butt. Nyquil knocks me out. Dayquil knocks me out. I hope I'm over this by Tuesday because I have plans.

    Maybe you should look at it like sedation detox for heroin addicts. Just keep drinking cold medicine and stay knocked out. Maybe when you come to you'll be all better. Either that or your liver will have ceased functioning. But really, sorry you're feeling bad :sad:
