I thought she was in her 9th trimester.
 
2010-06-01 04:22:54 PM
I'd like to see her and the Sham Wow guy get into a head on collision and be trapped facing each other in the wreckage for hours until the Jaws of Life could remove them. Neither one of them would ever be the same again.

Jesus, I don't even watch TV and I still can't seem to escape this annoying broad.

I wonder what it's like to be some obscure standup comedian or something and get some gig like that and the next thing you know, people are drawing pictures of you getting hammered by black dudes and putting them on the internet and leaving YouTube comments like "i wuld let hr poop in ma mouth she sooo sxy!"

Because that'd be a sweet gig.
 
2010-06-01 04:40:48 PM
Oh I hate her. She should be called "Annoying Flo".

Walker: Oh I hate her. She should be called "Annoying Flo".

I like the fact that she annoys people.

It still kills me that the FreeCreditReport.com guy is French Canadian and speaks English with a heavy accent.

I'd hit it.

/BTW, she made a brief appearance on "United States of Tara".

They write her as a socially awkward person, which makes her more realistic, attainable and desirable. And she really globs on the lipstick.

So in other words, I'd hit it.

I'm always fascinated when an actor takes a one-shot bit part (Flo, Urkel, etc.) and it explodes into the forefront like that.

"Broad"? really?

She has gams that won't quit, see? Square dames like that are straight shooters, see?

He had one daughter, thirty-two, her name's Irene, but she calls herself Rita.

Just like a dame.
 
2010-06-01 07:21:44 PM
seriously, who doesn't know all of this about her already?

it seems that every 6 months someone from the msm does an interview with her or drops her bio on the page and it goes green.

*yawn*

Progressive Flo is the greatest thing to happen to TV since the invention of the remote control and Jack Bauer's bloodlust.

I saw her do some improv when she was with the Groundlings..I think she's pretty talented.
/Plus I'd hit that like there was no tommorow.

I'd totally hit that. She looks like Josie Cotton.

See if you can spot her in Mad Men.

You're a juggalo, right?

She was Wolfram & Hart's file system in one episode of Angel back in the day.

I kinda hate that I know that.
 
2010-06-01 08:29:08 PM
I remember an earlier thread where I mentioned she was in a Glade commercial as a pregnant friend doing yoga and calling out the hostess.

I also mentioned the way she bent down and over, I would have hit it so hard I would have been the baby daddy retroactively.

/still stands

I don't have knowing that.

I said it before, I'll say it again if I have to!
 
2010-06-01 08:35:48 PM
Err... I don't HATE knowing that.

All right, then.

Uh, yes, I would have to say I'd do her, in the butt

I'd rather see Flo than that cartoon chick, 24 president, or gekco(sp).

I couldn't agree more. She's the one thing that will stop my 2-year-old niece's crying in mid-WAAAH. Can you DVR just commercials?
 
2010-06-01 08:42:27 PM
According to the adverts she does enjoy riding the pink pony sometimes. So there's that.

I knew her as Marge before she was Flo.
 
2010-06-01 08:46:27 PM
After that article I pictured her as a white Jean Grae/Mitch Hedberg combination, though she probably lacks the skill of both.

/Couldnt find any vids for "Flo standup"

Hey!

Don't call hoes "biatches"!

It's disrepectful!
 
2010-06-01 08:46:53 PM
As Flo, she bears a passing resemblence to Kari Byron. In fact, I was wondering if that was her on a new gig.

So help me, we will find a WAY.


StrikitRich: farm4.static.flickr.com

She just needs a tricked-out name tag.
 
2010-06-01 08:53:42 PM
Ah yes, Stephanie Courtney...also known as Maggie Gyllenhaal's older, better looking sister.

Dennis Haysbert?

He gets a pass for his role in Heat.

StrikitRich: Deadwing: See if you can spot her in Mad Men.

Beginning to sound like a tampon commercial in here.
 
2010-06-01 09:00:05 PM
Her face is pretty rough and cobbled together looking, but so is mine, so yeah I'd hit it.
 
2010-06-01 09:03:41 PM

Say no more, Flo. You have won my heart. And my loins.

She has certainly had a string of successful commercials with Progressive. I'd say she's the pearl to their advertising oyster.

...sorta like every six months someone does a breathless article on how Christina Hendricks is doing it for all the fat girls...
 
2010-06-01 09:29:18 PM
So, when does she get her own sitcom?
 
2010-06-01 09:30:57 PM
BTW, Anyone remember the dumbass Cavemen series they made out of the Geico cavemen? Guess who was in that series before she got her current gig?
