ha we need more of this.

i love it when letterman says stuff like this, not quite as directly, but close.
 
2005-04-25 01:38:08 PM  
I love RDJ. He's wonderful, too bad he's so farked up lately.
 
2005-04-25 01:39:38 PM  
I bet he's using again

Downey Jr,...is currently clean after a well-publicised battle against drug addiction which resulted in a spell in prison.
yeah---right
 
2005-04-25 01:45:25 PM  
currently clean = just took a shower to rinse the cocaine off his face
 
2005-04-25 02:21:48 PM  
Still not as good as Serge Gainsbourg sitting next to Whitney Houston on a French talk show and saying "I want to fouck you."

Isn't that Joyce DeWitt?!

I have a message for Mr. Downey

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?

If you can't say something nice about someone.......

Good call!

Dasboot: I bet he's using again

Nope. I'm guessing she was biatch to him and he decided to embarass her on live TV.

If that's the case, he is a hero.
 
2005-04-25 08:53:41 PM  
Aye, if he's sober he's a hero. Just for saying something so out of the ordinary.

Television/hollywood is so farking boring these days anything unusual gets free bonus points.
 
2005-04-25 08:54:02 PM  
i'd hit it
 
2005-04-25 08:55:06 PM  
Lorraine Kelly's voice annoys the crap out of me....

/that's all folks
 
2005-04-25 08:55:14 PM  
This thread is useless without video.
 
2005-04-25 08:55:22 PM  
Are we supposed to know Lorraine Kelly from somewhere?
 
2005-04-25 08:55:25 PM  
If this had happened in the US, the FCC would have fined the network beaucoups $$$ for allowing such filth to pollute the airwaves and warp the minds of America's (apparently) fragile and impressionable youth.
Personally, I think it's pretty funny.

I thought what he said was plenty nice!

/seriously, i did...
 
2005-04-25 09:02:02 PM  
Wait, isn't that a compliment? Maybe there is some sort of double standard going on here, but if I was on national tv and some famous good looking actress told me my package looked great, I'd be all like - "YOU HEAR THAT LADIES????"
 
2005-04-25 09:04:34 PM  
She's a british z list celebrity, so thats a no.

/salutes RDJ
 
2005-04-25 09:06:08 PM  
KoolMcKool-
The FCC would have fined the individual STATIONS, not the NETWORK.
 
2005-04-25 09:08:19 PM  
By the way, Robb's has a few shots of her at:

Actually, believe it or not, "tits" is one of the "seven dirty words you can't say on TV" (in America, of course). The full list is: shiat, Piss, fark, coont, Cocksucker, Motherfarker, and Tits. Of course, the filter ate a few of them, but you get the point.
 
2005-04-25 09:15:33 PM  
I can see how "You look great today" might have come off as biatchy to him. Even though his past excesses far exceed mine, I'm a little bit sensitive to statements like that. Sounds like she bit first and he bit back.

Who's got the video?

Actually, it's not. Saturday Night Live will occasionally say "tits." "Piss" is okay, too.
 
2005-04-25 09:27:18 PM  
Times have changed. Thankfully. They said "shiat" on ER a couple of seasons ago, and I danced around the room in happiness.
 
2005-04-25 09:27:35 PM  
Actually, if I recall, the words you can't (or shouldn't) say on television are "I don't know," and "water."
 
2005-04-25 09:28:21 PM  
The seven words got whittled down to five in recent years... And on occasion they even say "shiat" with special permission.
 
2005-04-25 09:29:20 PM  
I RTFA, and he sounds to me like a royal prick. She was clearly flustered, so her intent was probably sincere and kind. Props to her for handling it like a pro.
 
2005-04-25 09:29:32 PM  
I'm tired of all this sex on the telly!

I mean, I keep fallin' off!

He's a talented fark, so it's a shame he can't stay clean enough to work. Still, that's making the most of the moment.
 
2005-04-25 09:34:06 PM  
Would love to see the video of this if anyone has it>
 
2005-04-25 09:36:02 PM  
So, what, now it's wrong to compliment a good set of tits?


True story: A friend of mine in college once got himself laid using the line "nice tits" on a girl he was just being introduced to. Of course, he's the kind of guy who can say a thing like that and somehow have it come off as funny and charming. Me, I'd probably get my nuts kicked clean off.

2005-04-25 09:40:37 PM  
Okay, so her tits looked nice, and he complimented them.

So ... what exactly is the news story here?

Mr. Floppy: Why do women get upset when you compliment their breasts? If you compliment a painting, are you degrading the wall it's hanging on?
 
2005-04-25 09:48:44 PM  
He needs 'Poor Impulse Control' tattooed right on his forehead.
 
2005-04-25 09:48:55 PM  
There is nothing official about the "seven dirty words" list. It was part of George Carlin's stand up routine. There are other things not on the list that can't be said, but it was a gag and he picked some that sounded funny when they rolled off his tongue quickly.
 
2005-04-25 09:48:57 PM  
Morton Downey Jr is awesomely cool. No one since Fitzgerald ever made cracking up look like so much fun.
 
2005-04-25 09:50:27 PM  
Picture, if you will, this scene done in an episode of CSI:

Kelly: "You look fantastic, you look really well."

Downey: "Thanks. I was going to say that your tits look great too!"

SPECIAL EFFECTS SHOT: The camera rapid-zooms to the edge of her top, and then shoots down inside of it until it gets to a nipple, then shows the nipple getting stiff.

CUT BACK TO TALK SHOW: Kelly (shocked): "Thank you, that's nice."

Downey: "Particularly today."

SPECIAL EFFECTS SHOT: Camera rapid-zooms up her skirt to her crotch and shows her panties getting moist.


Who ... are you? Ooo-ooo! Ooo-ooo!
 
2005-04-25 09:51:16 PM  
Who the hell is Lorraine whoever?

You're degrading the painting if you compliment its frame

So ... what exactly is the news story here?


but... but... it's not the news, this is Fark!

Letterman basically did the same thing last week to Kristin Chenoweth (of West Wing fame) as she was falling out of the top of her dress. Obviously he didn't say tits.
 
2005-04-25 09:57:51 PM  
so, should I stop calling girls sugar tits?
 
2005-04-25 10:01:29 PM  
He should have told her that her coont stinks...
 
2005-04-25 10:02:53 PM  
Whenever I see the name Robert Downey Jr., I wonder how he could be related to this guy:

Big deal. They say "tits" all the time on British TV.
