Fred may be down, but he'll be back. In fact, I'd even go so far as to say that at this point, only Fred Willard can beat himself.

Wha happen?!

Poor guy. Theater employee calls TMZ, someone calls LAPD, all hell breaks loose.

Honestly, if a 78-year-old still feels like jerking off in a porno theater, don't they deserve a pass?

/I know someone who works in a porn store. Mostly, the patrons have their own code of conduct.

I would say yes (one of my friend's dreams is to shiat on the floor of a Wal-mart and claim senility the second he turns 65), but damn the guy has (well, had) a show and is famous.

PBS can't get behind a man when they can't trust what he's doing in the front.

Saying that, I've always liked Fred Willard, and I could see him still finding employment easily, just not with public broadcast. He's gonna have to joke about it and laugh at himself (the same way PeeWee did) to get back in the limelight, but it won't be too hard.

FTOFA: It was a quick release

Not quick enough, apparently
 
2012-07-19 06:52:47 PM  
Good ol' Fred! Got that piece of shiat show cancelled. Probably saved PBS millions and also a shiatload of embarassment. Fred may be the funniest man on the planet. 2 words: Fernwood Tonight.

Pee Wee Herman had the excuse that it was the 90s, before On-Demand, Netflix, DVD/BluRay, and T-1 speed Internet.

What's Fred Willard's excuse?

He's 78 and probably out of touch with most technologies?

I wouldn't be surprised if he still has a subscription to Playboy

What a bum rap. Everyone masturbates. And the stings at porn shops are a farce. Why else would someone go to a seedy theater except to be seen jerking it? If that's what gets all the creeps off, so be it. They're in a dark room, away from the public, doing their thing.

And I never thought of Fred Willard as a paragon of moral virtue, anyway. PBS is reacting on poor instinct. I hope everyone involved in this decision fires themselves the next time they engage in autoeroticism.

Your friend doesnt have to wait til he 65, tell him t go to a Goodwill store. My friend works at one and cleans up shiat of the floor almost daily at her store.

This, holy crap, this.

Look, I honestly don't care about anyone's sex life. Unless you're extending the invitation, I don't care about your porn habits (and that goes for you ladies who are all a-twitter over Fifty Shades of Grey), who you're sleeping with, how often you get it, what kind of toys you use, all that shiat? Makes not one lick of difference to me.

You want to beat off? Fine. You catch someone else beating off, especially in a place where you're going to be aroused and around a bunch of adults, who, let's face it, know that they're pretty much there to do the same? Have the decency to keep it to yourself. As long as you're not endangering children or animals and all the adults are conscious of the environment and consented to be there, why the hell should it matter?

So, using the parlance, I'm on Team Fred, and I dare say, were I to meet the man, I'd shake his hand.

/Was on Team Pee-Wee back in the day, too.

Hah, I work much harder to look at porn these days. I have so much to watch I am like a kid in a candy store. Nope this video isn't quite what I am looking for. next. Hmm, those boobs could be a bit better, next. Well maybe this seems good, oh damn they switched to a horrible angle, next. Then before you know it i have been masturbating for an hour and a half. I don't miss the by gone days, but you were greatful for what porn you had, I am too picky now.

Some people get off on the thrill of doing it in public. Enjoys the risk of getting caught. He just found "The Edge." He went too far.

Fark PBS!

Fred is an american institution. My wife and I just rewatched Best in Show last night for like, the 20th time, because we were reminiscing about how funny he was.

And seriously, does ANYBODY actually give a shiat about this? People masturbate. People watch porn. The single most surprising thing about this story is the fact that there are still porn theaters!

Conservatives want PBS off the air. PBS does not want to get beaten to death by Fox News for a week.
