Default Kathy Griffin Makes Another Vulgar Quip On CNN

Why? She did it last year, a vulgar remark yelled at someone in the audience. So why do they bring her back and why is that "funny" at all. It is stupid and pathetic comedy.

"For the second straight year, comedian Kathy Griffin ushered in the new year by saying something vulgar on CNN.

During the network's live New Year's Eve broadcast from Times Square, Griffin was joking with co-host Anderson Cooper about how to pronounce the first name of "balloon boy" Falcon Heene when she mumbled something that sounded a little like "Falcon" and a lot like the F-word."

And the target is some little kid who was placed in a situation by his parents stupidity.

You've really got to have a low intellect to think this is humorous in any way at all.

I enjoy Griffin's humor and wish there was a video of this incident to see if it was as offensive as you think it was.

How would it not be?

That's funny? What lame humor.

"Gee what can I do to be funny tonight on a national show, something really funny and creative and witty..................hmmmm I sneak F*** in there somewhere! Yeah that will make them laugh, THAT's entertainment! I'm brilliant!"

Thanks Gordon Shumway for the clip.

I find it a cheap attempt at humor but not offensive and not aimed at the kid at all.

He is the target of the joke and since it is a bad attempt at immature humor to begin with. Who but a child would think dropping the F-bomb on national TV would be funny........yeah let's talk dirty.......that's sooo funny.

There's a time and place for this kind of crassness, and this wasn't it...Redd Foxx, Richard Pryor, and George Carlin...3 masters of the curseword...wouldn't even come close to saying anything of that sort on this stage...

Unless of course, CNN wants to attact the kind of people that don't find this stuff crass...

Makes you wonder doesn't it.

But this just reminds me of little children who learn a "dirty word" and then sneak into their bedrooms and say it to each other and think it is so funny.....

What is so funny about saying f***?

I recall a business trip to New York and they flew the wives up for the weekend. One of the guys at the office there went out of his way to get everyone tickets to the big comedy club of the day. A bunch of us go and this guy comes out and has some other guy in the back with a mic doing farting sounds, he would start to say something and then act like he was farting while the guy in the back would make the sound. Not only was it a "been there done that" thing but after about 10 minutes people began to leave, we tried to bear it out to be nice to the guy who got the tickets but finally he had had enough and we got up and left. But the guy on stage thought it was the funniest thing he'd ever done......

It was totally juvenile and what I expect from my four and three year old grandkids.

I think they do. How else can they get NYE ratings? Here's some comments.

Quote:
Since Kathy Griffin has been booked 3 years straight now to co-host New Years Eve with Anderson Cooper, it is telling that people enjoy watching the two of them "keeping it real" together. No one said she was classy, Aaron R. but she is very entertaining and the chemistry between them is hilarious. Also, you can tell that they are friends outside of the broadcast and he enjoys being the straight man to her comic. So simply turn the channel if you don't like it, it's your prerogative ... obviously, there is enough people out there who enjoy it for CNN to continue booking them together.

The only time I watch CNN is New Year's Eve with Kathy and Anderson - it's all in fun and I love that she can make Anderson "Andy" Giggle! It's all stupid fun just to make people like you all get all upset.

What is "fun" about calling a little boy "f******" instead of his real name? That is the best this comic wit could come up with?
