Creepy Creepy Brian Williams
What's the deal with Brian Williams's bizarre obsession with the male genitalia? On David Letterman's show Monday night, Brian felt compelled to tell us that his recent trip to California included a pat-down by an airport security official who went "right after Dave and the twins." Then he twice used the word "shmegegge" as a euphemism for his genitalia. He also told Dave that there was "almost too much testosterone" in the room (I think we all know where in the body testosterone is made). And on Jimmy Fallon's show last Feb. 5, Brian said that the luge bodysuit is "the most package-enhancing outfit...." It's really creepy to see a supposedly professional network news anchor appearing on talk shows and making repeated references to "shmegegges", "packages" and "Dave and the twins". From now on, whenever I hear Brian use an odd or unfamiliar phrase on his newscast, I'll be wondering if that is really a coded reference to his "shmegegge". Gross. I think I need to take a shower now.
