In September the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences will present their annual EMMY Award program.
As an alternative, I offer the OH MY Awards for the worst that TV serves up on our entertainment (?) platter.

Without a doubt, the worst host of a TV talk show has to be Jimmy Fallon. After 85 episodes of his show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, I am amazed that a person could be so bad at stand up comedy.. You hear more laughs in a dentist's waiting room than from his audience.

His comedic sketches lack ingenuity or humor. You can see when the audience is supposed to laugh but they, and I, just sit there. The only person entertained by Jimmy's sense of humor is Jimmy.

He also lacks the ability to interview a guest. In fact the only guests that he seems capable of inter-acting with, on any level, are current and former members of SNL.

If you have an opportunity to watch this show, DON'T!

And that's my "two-cents" worth.

"Let's all be careful out there!"


Of late, I have noticed that my threshold for stupidity is lowering.

My cell phone rings, the area code (707) indicates that the call is coming from somewhere in the northwest of California. I have friends and family living in that area, but I do not recognize the actual number.


"Is this Best Buy?"

"I'm sorry but you have the wrong number."



Not an unusual occurrence..

30 seconds later the cell rings again. From the same number.

"Boy, you must really be stupid to call the same number that you were just told was a wrong number."

"Is this Best Buy?"

"Try 4-1-1, dummy."


Of course, 30 seconds later, the same number calls me again.

"Excuse me ma'am, but what part of
does not apply to you? This is the third time you've called the same wrong number! In less than 2 minutes!! It was wrong the first time and it isn't going to be right, no matter how many times you call back. What are you? A crack whore whose last brain cells were erased 30 seconds before you picked up the phone?"

(she disconnected).

Phone stopped ringing.

Ah, peace.

A stand-up comedian.

But I am afraid that people will laugh at me.
