I've been in an Olympics induced coma all weekend. Happily, I should say. The opening ceremonies were weird but fun (who else was baffled by the Ode to the National Health Services?) And the competition has been exciting.
But there has been a fly in the ointment. And that fly is Ryan Seacrest. What fat-head in NBC decided to put him on the air? And how can we get him off? We still have two weeks. There is no time for a solid letter writing campaign, which is always my tactic of choice. So instead we're all going to have to call the NBC headquarters and scream really loud. We can do this!
In general I get annoyed whenever I see him and his over-gelled hair. I have been very successful up til now avoiding Ryan Seacrest, which is not easy to do considering that he is trying to take over the world. I don't watch American Idol or E! and I never listen to him on the radio. And you would think that the sports world would be the one place we all could be safe from his enormous mouth because he always strikes me as someone who cares more about moisturizers than athletics. But now he has popped up on the Olympics, something that I truly love, and it just makes me want to punch something. Why is he even there? It seems like every time he opens his mouth he's only talking about something he read on Twitter or how he's besties with the Bieb.
I feel like this is a sign of the Apocalypse. Or maybe HE is a sign of the Apocalypse. Along with famine and plagues. Because how powerful are you when you're the Most Annoying Person on TV and you still get a coveted gig like this?
