Gummin' it

Your friendly private eye took extreme measures to find the perfect oscar-viewing venue. Calls were made, arms were twisted and home entertainment centers devised so that yours truly could indulge her bizarre wish to participate in this meaningless ritual.
Forgive me if I offend, for I missed at least a third of the ceremony, but what was that? There was no feast for the eyes, no banquet of delights to be found on ABC Sunday evening. It was the equivalent of a soft foods diet. Everything felt pre-masticated.
The interpretive dance set to "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" seemed like a KIDS Incorporated skit from over a decade ago.

Come on people, you can do a little better than that. Sure, Reese gave a sweet little speech. We all knew that was coming and that it would be perfectly calculated for effect.

I wanted the real deal: a genuine gaffe, drunken speech or something. So, Crash won Best Picture and Jack Nicholson raised his legendary brows. At the end of the ceremony we still wondered aloud, is that all there is?

Agreed. It is one catchy tune. It works great for mad libs lyrics. We have enjoyed adaptations such as "You know it's hard out here for a pooch
tryin' not to be a mooch..."you get the idea.
we'll talk soon.

Even Better--In my search for a KIDS INC. photo I discovered that Fergie of "my humps" fame was on the show.
