Shrimp Etouffee

The E! Oscar pre-show was so painful. Like, how did Khloe Kardashian get past security? She is woefully under-qualified to even be in attendance.

To exacerbate the obvious problems, they give her a microphone. She immediately bashed Anna Kendrick’s dress & I immediately had steam coming out of my ears. You don’t bash Anna Kendrick, Khloe, Anna Kendrick bashes you. GOODBYE!

I am convinced my friends & I would be a far more entertaining panel. Phrases we’d overuse to describe outfits & stars: DEAD, DYING, I CAN’T, IS THIS REAL LIFE, CAN’T BREATH, ON THE FLOOR, KILL ME.

We would just be so positive & uplifting about everyone. We’d also be funnier & more articulate than the babbling fools they currently have.

Call us, E! We’re cute & will work for cheap. Also, I’ll feed you this.
