Join me in falling down this rabbit hole of Norm Macdonald’s funniest clips



All Other TV News

Julianne Hough is REALLY TRYING to back away from the controversy surrounding The Activist. Good luck with all that!

Eileen Davidson is out here spilling the tea on how the Real Housewives producers manipulate the cast to create drama.

RuPaul now has a fly named after him.

Did Michael Che steal this TikTok sketch? I mean … maybe … kinda … it’s not exactly cut and dry.

I never get tired of these:

A tech on the set of the Kevin Hart Netflix film, Me Time, has suffered a serious accident during filming.

Tucker Carlson lies???!? The next thing you’ll tell me is that he’s vaccinated and doesn’t actually believe all the bullshit he spews on TV every night!

Going Viral

Last week:

This week:

Another week, another downturn in the number of cases, which is good news. What is horrific news is the number of deaths we are still seeing daily — pushing towards 2,000 a day again. We have reached the point where 1 in 500 Americans have died of COVID; and we are nearing the same number of deaths as the Spanish Flu and AIDS. And this number does not count the number of people who died without COVID who weren’t able to receive treatment because the hospitals are full. I hope this downturn in the number of cases is related to more people getting vaccinated and is a trend that will continue; I also worry that we haven’t seen the worst of it yet, between kids returning to school, crowds gathering again, and the onset of cooler and cold weather. Cross your fingers.

Meanwhile, the huge news of the week is that President Biden went big in his fight against this virus, issuing what some are referring to as a “vaccine mandate.” It actually is a “vaccine option,” but that’s a lot less scary sounding. Basically, using OSHA rules, President Biden made a rule that companies with 100 or more employees must require them to be vaccinated OR! OR! be tested weekly for the virus. See? There’s a choice! The choice just doesn’t include “being able to do whatever I want without any consequences.” OH WELL.

He also is requiring all federal employees and contractors to be vaccinated, all employees of hospitals and other health care facilities that receive Medicare and Medicaid benefits must be vaccinated, and employers must provide paid time off for those getting vaccinated.

You can see why people are so furious.

By the way, my favorite part of Biden’s announcement last week was when he noted that even Fox News has a vaccine requirement.

In fact, 90% of their employees are already vaccinated, not that you’d know that if you watched the channel.

Meanwhile, the stupid are now drinking iodine instead of GETTING THE FREE AND SAFE VACCINE, and they keep dying of a preventable disease. For instance:

Bob Enyart, a right-wing radio host who gleefully celebrated the deaths of AIDS patients and who railed against the vaccine, is dead of COVID.

Veronica Wolski, a QAnon activist, died of COVID, but not before other QAnoners harassed the hospital she was in, demanding that they treat her with horse paste.

And — and this is true and horrifying — last week alone, 22 New Jersey cops died of COVID. But keep fighting those vaccine mandates, police unions. Great job, guys.

Allison Williams, an ESPN reporter, is stepping down over her company’s vaccine requirement, saying that she’s trying to get pregnant. Meanwhile, in Mississippi, the number of fetal deaths has doubled because pregnant women aren’t getting the vaccine. Reminder: the vaccine is safe for pregnant women and their babies; COVID is not.

Then there’s Jim Breuer who is canceling shows where they are requiring proof of vaccination. I mean, making yourself the anti-Patton Oswalt is one way to get attention after being completely forgotten for the past 23 years.

And I’m sure you’ve seen the hilarious mess Nicki Minaj made with this tweet:

Don’t worry, the internet was quick to inform her that her “cousin’s friend” in Trinidad has an STD, not a vaccine reaction.

Norm Macdonald, Legendary comedian and Saturday Night Live anchor and cast member. This one hurts.

“Norm Macdonald, the acerbic, sometimes controversial comedian familiar to millions as the “Weekend Update” anchor on “Saturday Night Live” from 1994 to 1998, died on Tuesday in Los Angeles. He was 61.

His manager, Marc Gurvitz, confirmed the death. Lori Jo Hoekstra, his longtime producing partner, told the entertainment news outlet Deadline that the cause was cancer, something he had been dealing with for some time but had kept largely private.”

Some of Norm’s classic clips that you must watch:

Don’t feel bad for Courtney Throne-Smith: “Every once in a while,” she said, “I’ll run into Conan and he’ll apologize, and I say, ‘That was one of my favorite moments of my life.’ Teased by Norm Macdonald? Are you kidding?'”


He got fired from Saturday Night Live for these jokes:

This is his last set on David Letterman’s show — stay for the final moments when he gets choked up saying goodbye to his friend. If you don’t tear up, too, you’re a stronger person than me.

Finally, on “battling with cancer:”

He was so appreciated, even the butt of his jokes paid tribute (well, maybe not OJ):

Finally, I’ll let Norm have the last word:
