Accepting Brad Pitt’s award is Zippy!

February 8, 2009

Blog Guy, I’m really pumped for the Oscars – I love all the glamour and razzle-dazzle. Don’t the Brits have something like that, too? I’d love to see it.

They have BAFTA. You’d hate it. It’s not nearly as glitzy.

Really? How is it different?

The actors and actresses don’t really show up. They just send pictures, which are placed around the Royal Opera House to look like an audience.

I don’t believe that!

See for yourself. Here are Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Kate Winslet enjoying themselves at the event.

That’s just lame. What happens if Brad Pitt wins an award?

A trained chimp takes his poster up to the podium and waves it around.

But don’t they at least have presenters?

Sure, if you count sock puppets.

Live large! Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

No, really. This guy never says anything truly funny, just stupid visual puns with a weird, vague title to make you click it. None of it is even odd, he just puts random, strange misconceptions on regular photos. It’s repetitive and juvenile. I miss the old, high brow humor of the last Oddly Enough, you can tell the difference in clientele by reading the comments.
