Brace yourselves. I’m about to do something I haven’t done in years– I’m about to defend Lindsay Lohan.
Some of my favorite websites (like Gawker) have been ragging on Lindsay today for her fake-cake-eating on this weekend’s SNL. If you watch the clip, you’ll see that Lindsay repeatedly brings the spoon up to her mouth to "eat" but never actually does so.
Now, it’s easy to make fun of Double L and call her anorexic for not scarfing down on the chocolate cake, but I’m going to stand up and say that Lindsay was just playing it safe so she didn’t get caught with food in her mouth on live TV. From a guy who choked on a muffin on stage during his middle school production of Oklahoma, I’m just going to come right out and say that eating on display isn’t nearly as easy as it seems.
Wait a second. I meant to say if I appeared in my middle school production of Oklahoma I bet it wouldn’t have been easy. It was a… hypothetical. Shut up, leave me alone.
