Funniest Fey

Tina Fey was on TV winning a major award last night and you thought I wasn’t going to write about it today? It’s like you don’t even know me at all. My Fake TV Wife was on PBS last night picking up her Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the Kennedy Center. You know, it’s just the highest American honor for comedy. No big whoop. And Tina is just the third woman and youngest recipient to ever receive the honor. Ain’t no thing. Also, she looked gorgeous and was hilarious and made me want to hug her with my legs in friendship, except more than friendship since we’re fake married and all and – wait, is this getting weird? Just in case, watch this.

Also, because my internet went out for several hours last night, I spent my time waiting for it to come back up making screencaps. So if you want to write an angry letter of complaint about the following picspam, please address it to Comcast.

Adorable TinaOh, that slightly crooked smile.

Unimpressed TinaMostly by her own hype, in true Liz Lemon style.

How You Doin’ TinaThat would totally work on me, but then you already all knew that.

Scoldy TinaThat would also totally work on me, and now you’re probably all weirded out that you know that.

Muffin Top, LIVE!I would go see an entire musical review of “30 Rock” numbers. Seriously.

Congratulations, honey. Now, as far as letters in the acronym go, you are half way to an EGOTMTP.

UPDATE: This was cut from Tina's acceptance speech by PBS. I have to say, bad call Public Television. This gives her speech bite. And, of course, MAKES ME LOVE HER MORE.

"And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women — except, of course, those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape kit ‘n’ stuff. But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years. Whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know, actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster."

Tina's dress is AMAZING, as are her work and yours, Ms Dorothy Snarker.

I'm surprised you didn't comment on Tina's "butch" look when she was at Chicago Improv.

You know that PBS is totally free right? And you don't have to have comcast or cable (NBC is free, too) to see her? I don't care, I don't have cable because I can't afford it, and I don't have the internet because I get that from a very understanding and nice neighbor. I love your blog, you love her and I love her, so that means that I love your blog, too:) I was happy for you when I saw your excited tweets last night:) Thanks for the re-cap:)

Weirdly, with her hair like that, she, for some reason, looks like Deborah Kerr to me. I have no idea why, though.

Either way, congrats to both you and your fake wife!
