Giggle. I was unplugging a friend's toilet during the Oscars last night, but I saw the picture of Trey Parker and Matt Stone in the paper this morning, so now I haven't missed anything, but Columbine sums up the Oscars wonderfully:

"Wasn't the Thalberg award supposed to honor lifetime achievement? Doesn't that imply that you've achieved something? Besides making a long string of mediocre movies and sleeping with everyone in Hollywood, I mean?"

To Tom (of Backup Brain) who supplied the picture link: The guy in the middle is the third author of "Blame Canada")

That's a very bizarre sentence to read. I get as far as I was unplugging a friend's[Wiki] and my brain expects the next word to be computer[Wiki] or toaster[Wiki] or television[Wiki]. When I hit toilet[Wiki], I have to go back and re-parse the darned thing. And your comment system has problems with quotation marks. If I just type a quotation mark, the comment gets truncated at that point. If I use the HTML escaped character, it shows up properly in the Edit Comment box but not on the page of comments.

The guy is Marc Shaiman, the guy that arranged all their music and is himself a five time nomminee for an oscar of his own. Did anyone else notice how when they announced the songs, they showed all the songwriters on camera except for Matt and Trey?

I knew that was Marc Shaiman, but I don't know who (if anyone) he was supposed to be in that getup.

I thought he was posing as Matt and Trey's pimp...big hat, fur coat...
