|But I am not going to go into boring details about HOW offended I was--no one wants to hear that, now do they? ;-)|
My husband just turned off the TV about thirty seconds into the "HLA" and we did something ELSE on the family room couch while the kids were asleep upstairs...
Read the newspaper together? ;-)

|I can imagine how you felt about it. I wasn't exactly ecstatic about it myself, so I took one for the team and saw the whole segment. Two words - three minutes.|

|I volunteered to take the garbage out so I wouldn't have to watch it. What a crappy segment.|

|And Lawler's verbal jizzing did not help matters.|
Good lord, I wanted to staple the man's mouth shut.

|"Verbal jizzing" -- that's the *perfect* term!|
Oddly, I wasn't any more offended by this than I was by the "pillow fight" or the other gratuitous, pointless, non-wrestling, non-plot-related, titilate-the-boys crap that they do. Eric went out to his local rent-a-lesbian store & staged his own publicity stunt. I suppose in a way that is plot-related, supporting what a sleeze Eric is & what a ridiculous 12-year-old Jerry is. I'm not at all convinced that we needed quite as much evidence of these points as we got, but subtlety is not generally a hallmark of these kinds of storylines.
I would have been very, very, very offended if they'd coerced any of the regular talent to do this stunt. But Eric (of all people!) knows where to go for rental porn-ette.
On the Lawler front, there were a couple of things that were different for me than his previous displays. In the past ("Puppies!", "Legs!", "Fatass!", "Cherry!", "Hymen!"), his jizz has always been directed at an actual individual person. That's more offensive to me than his more abstract raving last night. When he's going on about Molly's ass, he's being mean to Molly. When he's screaming for "HLA", he's just displaying his own inner chimpanzee. And because he was doing it throughout the entire show -- as irritating as that was -- he was disrespecting all the wrestlers, not just a couple of women trying to put on a match.
I'm still clinging to hope that this is all leading somewhere plot-wise. Yeah, I know, but I can keep telling myself that.

|You know what's really sad?|
Last night's RAW actually had some good stuff. But it's hard to remember it, because Jerry and his "verbal jizz-ing" is all I can seem to recall.
You notice that even JR was getting extremely tired of Lawler.
I'm a mark. I'm a marky mark mark. I haven't missed a Raw in *six* years. But they're seriously testing my patience here.
I want Paul Heyman back behind the announce table!
On the other hand, I've been *loving* Jericho lately. He's getting back his glorious heel form. :)
As soon as you're born you start dying, so you might as well have a good time.

|Sheesh, that segment was in seriously poor taste. Lawler was unexcusable, the lesbians were particularly skanky looking, and then to top it all off we had to watch these girls get physically beat down in a vicious manner. I could almost forgive the obvious ratings grab with the lesbian action, but then to turn it into just another pointless beat down 3 minute schtick was stupid, insulting, and ruined what little good there is left in RAW. |
What was the deal, the WWE couldn't stand to be getting good press from PFLAG so they had to go and do something to earn their scorn?
I'm just here for the sweaty mens... pay no attention.

|There was a line Lawler had last night amid all the clamoring for HLA. In regards to the Un-Americans, he said, "I would like to see things from their point of view, but I just can't get my head that far up my ass." Boy oh boy, talk about the proverbial pot'n'kettle...|
I just don't understand it. Before last week, I hadn't really been minding Lawler all that much on commentary. Maybe it's Tazz-deprivation settling in, but he was pretty calm, focused, somewhat insightful, and not annoying (during segments without women, naturally). But in the span of two weeks, between hymen and HLA, I really wish his recent plastic surgery would have included some sort of muzzle. yeesh.
