It's Funny Because I Didn't Know Her

Turns out that maybe Amy Winehouse should have gone to rehab after all.

I'm proud to be the 13,264,179th person in the world to do that line. It's a really cheap, easy joke, the kind I never feel really good about. It's the sort of obvious joke that I can imagine Jay Leno doing in his monologue, and it kind of depresses me when I write one of those. However, if Leno were to come out and do this particular joke this week, it would go a long way toward letting me respect his work again.

In that spirit, I'm hoping that I'm the first person to do a Winehouse joke other than the painfully obvious one. Let's give it a shot:

Right now, the Grim Reaper is berating one of his assistants. "You got the work orders mixed up! Winehouse wasn't until next week - you were supposed be at Charlie Sheen's place! This is almost as bad as that time you wrote down the wrong address and went to Phil Hartman's house instead of Andy Dick's!"

There. I feel better now.

Enough rambling. Here's another picture of my new dog back when she weighed less than sixty pounds, lo so many months ago.

I have thought the same thing about Amy Winehouse. Then people say it's "cruel" or "judgmental." Honestly, if a person releases a song about refusing to get clean...well, she was asking to be ridiculed. Not asking to die, just to be ridiculed.

Now, saying the "Leaving on a Jet Plane" may not have been a great song choice for John Denver...THAT is uncalled for.

The Andy Dick bit was priceless. Love it!
