You think that Clooney joke was about him having sex with a 9 year old? Really, that's what you got out of it?

No, the point is that is what the 9 year old girl probably got out of it.  "Congratulations on a great acting job! We aren't giving you an award, but let's make sure you feel like millions of people watching tv are thinking about you naked right now!  Good luck with your future self esteem, sweetie."

There seem to be a lot of people who were offended by Seth MacFarlane's material because they don't know how time travel works. Captain Kirk brought those jokes back from a possible future to warn MacFarlane not do to them. The mission was successful and so those jokes did not occur except in an alternate universe. It's therefore illogical to be offended.

I actually thought the Rihanna joke was pretty goddamn funny. Family Guy sucks ass, but I have to admit that Seth's hosting was pretty good. Griping about the Oscar host is just one of those things that people do, like saying SNL hasn't been funny for (current year) - (year when you were 18) years, or Starbucks coffee tastes "burnt," or...well, saying Family Guys sucks.

My only beef with the "Boobs" song is that it missed the obvious chance to rip on the actresses that won't show them because they "want to be taken seriously".  What better way to do that then a juvenile song about a shiat load of Oscar winners and nominees who have, in fact, shown their boobs?

Would have turned it from "juvenile" into a point that, it's not your boobs that keep you from being taken seriously but your lack of actual talent.

I thought he had some marvelous bits. The Flying Nun thing was bizarrely funny and the sock-puppet re-creation of Flight was genius. The Chris Brown / Rihanna joke was offensive, but richly deserved. On the other hand, Seth needed an editor. Shatner's bit went on too long, for example, and other material didn't work. If I had been in charge, I would have cut the "boobs" song. I might have let him keep it in if it had been witty, ala Cole Porter, but it wasn't. It was just juvenile. The Mel Gibson joke? Just tired. There was a time when it would have been a funny reference, but that time has passed. The John Wilkes Booth joke? Wrong audience.

But of course he wasn't the worst host ever. Nobody will ever take that title from Franco. That's safer than Cy Young's record of 749 complete games. Oh, sure, you could name some douchebags who would actually be worse hypothetically, like (let's say) Donald Trump, but nobody who could actually be considered for the job could do worse.

I'd go farther than that. Remember Rhinestone, the Dolly Parton movie where she bets that she can turn the next asshole she sees into a country singer, and that asshole happens to be Rocky Rambo Balboa? Well, I'll bet that you could pick some random person off the streets and, with a month of coaching, turn him or her into a better Oscar host than Franco.

Unless you happened to pick Donald Trump.

He said that in 16 years she would be old enough to date Clooney. It was a swipe at Clooney's consistent habit of dating 25 year old women, no matter how old he gets. It said nothing about, and had nothing to do with, dating underage girls.

I understood the joke. It's not a bad joke. But its not one you make in front of the girl. And I'm not remotely squeamish about that kind of humor, I just didn't find it all that funny.
