Now that I’m a parent I find that I don’t have time to watch late night TV, but Jimmy Kimmel seems to have gotten pretty funny while I was busy with my brood. Luckily I can catch it all in dribs and drabs online. (Note: these are only sort of safe for work/the eyes and ears of your kids, so proceed with some caution.)
Like the rest of us, Kimmel has been taking pot shots at Nadya Suleman, aka the Octomom. Unlike the rest of us, he has a staff of writers and video people. (None of these are examples of tremendously complex comedy but it probably helped to have, you know, help.)
This video is really all about the wax lips that Jimmy puts on (and eventually eats) when he “plays” Nadya Suleman on his late night talk show. So it’s a cheap gag, but still kind of funny.
It is a little gross when Jimmy/Nadya pulls out a Mason jar of embryos and sits on them. But again, it’s kind of funny in a Beavis/Butthead sort of way. I’m also not sure whether he’s talking about Nadya or Dr. Phil when he says he wouldn’t “give money to that lunatic.”
Jimmy also has video of the birth:
The babies are flyin’. Look out!
And Jimmy looked at the video of Nadya and her mom:
That little edit at the end didn’t happen. It’s kind of like the scene in ‘True Lies’, where Ah-nuld imagines punching out the car salesman who was lusting after his wife. Wish fulfillment. Something tells me Nadya’s mom wouldn’t mind having a DVD of that clip to watch when things get tough.
