Kathy Griffin recorded her comedy album For Your Consideration just so she could get a Grammy and her dream is very close to coming true. Memaw Maggie’s daughter was nominated for a Grammy for Best Comedy Album last night along with Flight of the Conchords, George Carlin, Lewis Black and Harry Shearer. Hooray! This bitch better win just so she can offend the uptight dumbasses of America again.
The nominations were announced last night during a Grammy nomination concert. They had a fucking concert to announce the nominations and they showed that shit on TV. What’s next? A televised concert to announce the nomination concert? And another televised concert to announce that Mimi’s shit is banana-shaped?

Um. I think they’re going to need to do a recount. This list doesn’t seem right. I mean, where’s It’s So Cold in the D and Smell Yo Dick? Mistakes have been made. Those two masterpieces should have the most nominations.
And I expect Spaghetti Cat (I Weep For You) and Kim Zolciak’s Tightrope to sweeeeeeeep next year’s nominations.
