Britney didn't get the joke. She was the joke

Last night, known to no one west of the Themes, Comedian Russell Brand hosted the MTV Suck Shit Awards. And by most accounts, bombed. Brand started his opening monologue with a plea: America, please vote for Obama. Brand got a smattering of applause and it was down hill from there. He continued with a scathing assault on the Jonas Brothers (Who the fuck are they?) and their apparently public and popular abstinence till marriage gimick.

The audience was only mildly entertained by this brilliant, sexy and observant guy who talks funny and dresses just like Arnica did in 1989. The Superstar Hollywood power audience was too busy texting their publicists and thinking about how to make their tummies tighter to notice the heavy sarcasm be laid down in front of them.

In her review, Jackie Coyle of Huffington Post wrote:
Again and again, Brand _ a confessed former sex addict _ poked fun at young sex and abstinence. Speaking of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter's boyfriend and would-be father, Levi Johnston, Brand sympathized with him: "That is the safe sex message of all time. Use a condom or become a Republican! Now that is funny stuff.

Before the VMAs, Arnica was not a fan of Russel Brand, mainly due to the fact that Arnica had no idea who Brand was. Now, Arnica is A-#1 fan supremo!

That's a good one! I missed it but clearly didn't miss anything.
