Some people are just meant to be talk show guests. Charles Grodin comes to mind. Dom DeLuise when Burt Reynolds or a fifth sandwich would appear. Norm McDonald, or that old dead guy who used to go on Letterman and talk candidly about the NFL. In other words, all entertaining folks, but for whatever reason they're at their best on Talk Shows. No one epitomizes this more than Martin Short. You can really only take him in REALLY small doses as he only has flashes of brilliance. He had a great one-year run on SNL, but really, what else has Marty Short given us? Wednesday night on Letterman, he pulled off a brilliant TMZ spoof (you have to to to about the 2:00 mark on the video above to watch). The photo shot of him with Steve Martin on the beach before isn't bad either. And as always with Short, he overstays his welcome after the TMZ short (I'm not wild about his little Lounge Singer act, something only Bill Murray could truly pull off, but I'd like to see Andy Dick give it a try).
Lots of talk about Carrie Underwood from the previous post, and I think the City of Blair, NE is about to hand the keys of the city to her really soon, especially if Bsmoked and Trees Trunk get the petition started. Well, turns out Old Man Henley has a thing for her too. Here's a phot of him offer young Carrie what seems to be a hot towel. In the interest of full disclosure, Henley's wife has been suffering with MS for quite sometime, something the man tries to keep very private so we'll honor that here. In other words, you can't be expected to close your eyes forever kids.
