Soft Gay Bashing

Never has morning news seen a gay joke so accidental and so unfunny.

Meredith Viera: Talk about movies with a heart: Brokeback Mountain. Did you have any idea when you were making that what you were sitting on, so to speak? So to speak - I probably shouldn???t use that term, actually. I apologize.

Jake Gyllenhaal: Wow! Uh -

MV: You make this movie and - wow - I???m sorry???

JG: Very well put, Meredith.

Because gays have anal sex, y’see? Har, har, har.

More Gyllenhaal after the jump.

You forgot that the gays always do it sitting down. I think that was the real crux of the joke.

Meredith just is a horrible person to put on the Today Show; in my opinion she always flubs what should be easy transitions. It seems like nearly every week she’ll jump from a rape/murder/animal abuse story right to Al with the weather with nary a warning about “switching gears” and as an American who wants a smooth segue I am insulted. Insulted I tell you!

What the…??? Does she mean she shouldn’t use “sitting on” or “so to speak”? Because her stupid follow up makes it sound like she shouldn’t use “so to speak.”

Does she have any idea what she’s doing?

I don’t watch the show very often, but from what I’ve seen, I like Meredith more than Katie Couric, honestly. It’s Ann Curry that bugs me. She interrupts people all the time.

Sit on, speak on, call it whatever you want, as long as Jakey can come sit on my lap. Come here Jakey!!!

I like how anything loosely related to the anus provokes such awkwardness in some people.

Oh, I shouldn’t have said loose, so to speak… so to speak, I’m sorry. Wow.

That was as awkward as watching a segmemt with, Willar Scott. That guy always makes me want to hide under a table.

Other than Ellen, I don’t think I could name any daytime host/hostess I like at all.

She is on national television for three hours every single day doing nothing but talking. She’s bound to slip up once in awhile. Its a tough job and I think people can be over critical and don’t realize just how hard it is. Overall I think she does a fine job, so did Katie Couric.

No. 10 james_boston says:

i saw that live…i thought the whole thing with jake saying that al roker shouldn’t ever again be allowed near a baseball field (al threw the first pitch at a game somewhere and it was the worst thing ever…he pitched like a drunken sorority girl) was a lot more funny and awkward…but now that i recall, jake was the bottom in “brokeback…” so i guess i get the joke. ha ha.

damn, i’m getting all hot and bothered again.

What about Tony Danza ;-) Did ya’ll know he was drunk the whole time he had his show (so yeah, like 2 weeks)?

Or Drew Carey, hosting Price is Right? (sobs, tears)

No. 15 jujubees says:

I saw Tony Danza’s show one time. It was too depressing to try and watch it again. Unconftorable laughter is not as good as canned laughter.

To bad Ann Coulter didn’t say it, we could all be outraged.

No. 20 maria says:

No,if Ann Coulter said it she’d have said “Did you have any idea when you were making that what you were fucking a guy in the asshole? Because you were and you are going to burn for all eternity…as in alpha and omega, Jesus and the NRA” etc. Barf.
