The title of this post may have tricked you into thinking that I was going to write something really deep about existentialism or French literature. Wrong.
But I have been thinking about Huis Clos, and I have decided that if Sartre is right and "l'enfer, c'est les autres" (hell is other people), hell for me would be a room full of the following:
(Maybe I should have titled this post, "Things Other People Think Are Funny That I Hate")
Cartoons for grown-ups. (The Simpsons, Adult Swim, Family Guy, King of the Hill, The Cleveland Show, Futurama, South Park. There are no exceptions.)
Craig Ferguson. (Waste of a perfectly charming accent.)
Betty White. (Was over it before it started.)
Jeff Dunham and those ridiculous puppets.
UGH! I could probably handle this voice for 20 minutes before I went postal on poor old Betty. Judge me if you want - I was tired of holding it in.
Who would be in your room with no exit?
