bit of a weak punch tbh, although it sounded good because of the expensive microphones
The blow itself was really just symbolic. But when Smith sat down and started going "Get her fucking name out of your mouth" or whatever it was he sounded genuinely furious... and Chris Rock seemed actually shaken. I guess a lot of comedians don't ever think that what they are saying might actually upset or annoy someone - I say this cos it seems to me that whenever someone does come back at them after a joke they always seem completely and disproportionately flabbergasted, like they had forgotten that there exists a link between what they say and actual people in the actual world who might be actually affected and do something in response. He was like a lab technician poking a virus in a petri dish only to see it jump up and punch him on the nose. My feeling is that a lot of these guys have sort of tacitly assumed, in fact totally internalised the idea, that there is some kind of invisible wall that protects them from those they poke fun at and realising it's not there is a hugely scary moment for them. That's why he was so shaken, not cos of a tiny tap on the arm but by the realisation that his view of himself and his position relative to others is not as he thought.

Oh did I write it twice? Apologies, I thought I had accidentally deleted it so I posted it for what I thought was the first time.
I have to admit to some disappointment though, I was expecting in response a clever argument explaining how my post about comediams was in facy subconsciously an ode to the delights of anal fingering.

Is there one for sentences from novels or lines from poetry yet?
There might be, but I'd imagine that would be tough. Either someone would have to go through and collect recognizable excerpts, or else the automated version of it would be liable to post totally generic and unrecognizable stuff. Although I suppose that would be part of the challenge.

I see one of the nominees for best actor slapped the compere at the Oscars the other day.

Oh, Javier Bardem?

No but they have opened a formal review which could ultimately lead to some sort of similar sanction.

Warehouse Operative


"A journalist descends into the dark underbelly of the Iranian holy city of Mashhad as she investigates the serial killings of sex workers by the so called ‘Spider Killer’, who believes he is cleansing the streets of sinners."

Cool poster too.
