"The View" from here is not so "Rosie"

Does anybody think Rosie O’Donnell is funny? It seems like every week we get to watch yet another clip of Rosie saying something insane, followed by the producers of The View issuing a statement either apologizing for it, or brushing it off as Rosie being Rosie. But what I can’t understand is why anyone would want to sit through a full hour of painfully unfunny dialogue by painfully unfunny women at a roundtable. Seriously, who is watching The View? It has to have an audience or else it wouldn’t be on. Perhaps it’s a lack of options. Maybe people just don’t have anything better to do in the morning than watch Rosie O’Donnell and her cohorts slobber all over each other. So I’ve come up with a short list of things to do that would be both more fun and more productive than watching The View.

- The obvious, go to the dentist. Everyone could use a good teeth-cleaning, right?

- Shop for groceries. Do you know what you’re doing for dinner tonight? No, you don’t. So go buy some food.

- Go to the post office. You need stamps.

- Get a massage. This one’s obvious.

- Build a fort. When was the last time you built a fort?

- Watch Ellen’s show. It’s only a couple clicks of the remote away. Enjoy.

    ok, upon reading that...on second thought, no... her impression was horrifyingly racist.

    Just get a day job or turn off the tv. All daytime stuff is crap anyway.

    I am new to posting Comments here, but does the consistent "Anonymous" poster not get it? I would hope that he or she understands that while deliberately leaving off his or her name certainly accomplishes the obvious, it continually allows other readers to think he or she is a dumbass.

    I have to say I am surprised that there hasn't been an entire blog devoted to some off-the-wall comparison of the anonymous poster to a news-worthy, infamous celebrity flub...perhaps the most recent Lindsay Lohan mission statement.
