"I have a subpoena for you" as the perfect possible ending to a sketch is the new "Bend over and I'll show you" as the perfect possible answer to ANY question.

In regards to the Mississippi debate, let's keep in mind that they did not officially ABOLISH SLAVERY til FEB 7, 2013.

"That's a big girlfriend." - Matt Besser. Jerk.

I assume you're calling my character a jerk? I would never say something rude like that. #blessed

Yeah, that one stung and kinda put me in a foul mood for the rest of the episode. Especially since it wasn't part of a scene.

I couldn't hear anyone on the call except for matt, but it was very difficult, so I apologize for talking over people's points (or not even hearing them.) Thanks for letting me do the show!

To be fair it was just off the cuff, when you are on air that often you are bound to say something inflammatory, I wouldn't take any offense to it, I really doubt Matt was trying to be malicious towards the heavier ladies.

Jesus christ, 'heavier.' Yeah, all of us enormous fatties over 100 lbs. I think dudes have no idea how much ladies really weigh. Also it's crazy how Matt's comment came about from discussing a male improviser's weight loss and that immediately turned into shaming an imaginary girlfriend for being fat.

 

I have no doubt his comment was off the cuff and not malicious, and that's why it bothers me. It's such an automatic reaction to call a woman fat. I've never been overweight, but growing up I was a head taller than all the boys until 6th grade. I heard every variation of a fat slur, and I wasn't even fat. I can't imagine how much worse it is for someone who struggles with their weight. I would hope that someone with a daughter would learn some sensitivity to this, because this is one of the major areas of bullshit most girls face as they grow up.

I'm sorry I said that. It was very howard stern show of me.
