Idol Chatter

I know that the day before the Super Bowl is a tough time to get your attention, so I’m all too happy to pass the buck.

This past week I paid tribute to comedian Paul F. Tompkins, a longtime favorite who has been lighting it up in recent months. A couple of weeks ago I posted a link to his recap of the first episode of American Idol, which was absolutely hysterical. Last week, it got even better.

I think even people who like the show are not only getting the jokes but starting to think about the reality juggernaut in a whole different light.

(Gee…a comedian who makes you laugh and think. Really?)

Follow along here. Much better than the real thing.

And Happy Birthday, Mom. 25 years ago seems like yesterday.
