This some kind of sick joke? Dude hasn't been funny since 1988.

He's hosting the Oscars not appearing on Def Comedy Jam. Why does he need to still be funny?

He can't be any worse than the Franco/Hathaway joke.

He can't be worse than that, correct. He can still be horrible, and being funny is clearly part of the criteria for that job.

At least Anne Hathaway was nice to look at.

So one the same day the world finds out Sara Palin banged Glen Rice in 1987 a guy that hasn't been funny since 1987 gets named to host the Oscars?

Glen Rice would have been a better pick than Murphy. Especially now that he has banging Palin on his resume.

Looks like Rice banged that lazy eye back in place...

and someone shoot me if the Academy decides to let Eddie sing the monolouge. It was bad enough we had to hear him sing, "How could it be" and a song w/ MJ.

Just say NO, Academy
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

I'm so distracted by laughing at this Palin Rice thing I can't work right now.

The she had a "black fetish" line just kills me.

I thought there was no way this was true...

turns out Michigan was one of the teams at the Great Alaska Shootout in '87. holy shit. This is the greatest thing since delonte/gloria.
