#bcotmedia students - what is your opinion of how Tina Fey dealt with this criticism? Use #bcotfey

“Dear Internet” by Tina Fey
From PerezHilton.com/Posted by jerkstore on Wednesday, 1/21/2009, 11:21 P.M.

“In my opinion Tina Fey completely ruined SNL. The only reason she’s celebrated is because she’s a woman and an outspoken liberal. She has not a single funny bone in her body.”

“Dear jerkstore,
Huzzah for the Truth Teller! Women in this country have been over-celebrated for too long. Just last night there was a story on my local news about a “missing girl,” and they must have dedicated seven or eight minutes to “where she was last seen” and “how she might have been abducted by a close family friend,” and I thought, “What is this, the News for Chicks?” Then there was some story about Hillary Clinton flying to some country because she’s secretary of state. Why do we keep talking about these dumdums? We are a society that constantly celebrates no one but women and it must stop! I want to hear what the men of the world have been up to. What fun new guns have they invented? What are they raping these days? What’s Michael Bay’s next film going to be?
When I first set out to ruin SNL, I didn’t think anyone would notice, but I persevered because—like you trying to do a nine-piece jigsaw puzzle—it was a labor of love.
I’m not one to toot my own horn, but I feel safe with you, jerkstore, so I’ll say it. Everything you ever hated on SNL was by me, and anything you ever liked was by someone else who did it against my will.
Sincerely,
Tina Fey
P.S. You know who does have a funny bone in her body? Your mom every night for a dollar.”

Very funny analysis - contains strong language


Can you become a fully functioning adult without growing up? In this highly anticipated debut from the So You Think You’re Funny? and Amused Moose Finalist, Jim Campbell illustrates his attempts to become a real person in a scary world where 30 is the new 20, money is broken and supposedly normal grown-ups are all confusingly weird.
As seen on BBC Comedy Online. ‘Rich with beautifully phrased jokes… it’s hard to imagine a subject he couldn’t come up with an original and literate joke about’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘An exciting new talent’ (Tim Arthur, TimeOut).
#bcotmedia students - we will be creating animations for Jim next year….
