In preparation for Last Laugh ’05, CC Insider has asked a bunch of comedians to talk about the year that was. Our own Pete Holmes had this to say about his favorite video of the year.
"I have to give it up for R. Kelly’s unintentionally hilarious ‘Trapped in the Closet,’ specifically the part where a pie-eating midget poops his little-person purple pantaloons. My favorite thing is that ‘midget’ is an offensive and outdated term, but R. Kelly uses it freely, presumably because it rhymes with ‘Bridget,’ the midget’s not-so-little secret lover. I guess it’s because nothing rhymes with ‘Little Person,’ except maybe Elle McPherson or ‘Brittle Person.’
Read the rest of Pete’s take on R. Kelly, as well as pieces by Sarah Silverman and Lisa Lampanelli here.
And here’s Part I of Comedians on 2005. What a year. What a year.
Ohmygod, is Mariah okay? I mean, she has somebody holding a cup up and putting a straw in her mouth, surely something’s wrong. Maybe she’s severely injured. Maybe she’s paralyzed. Maybe she’s… oh wait.
The singer â€” famous for her outrageous demands â€” stunned fans by being too lazy to lift the cup herself. A brunette assistant had to perform the task at
regular intervals while the singer signed copies of her album The
Emancipation of Mimi.
Okay, nevermind. Everything’s fine. Mariah’s juuuuust fine. Nothing wrong with her at all. Carry on.
SAN FRANCISCO – Rock band U2, currently on tour in North America, is well-known for its human-rights advocacy, particularly its ongoing campaign to eradicate poverty in Africa. Less known to fans of the Irish supergroup, however, is that the lion’s share of these efforts are made by lead singer Bono. The three other U2 members are perfectly okay with the dismal plight of Africa’s poor. [Continue Reading]

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s Mike Ditka rap video we have yet ANOTHER sports-music video. Some say sports music– even worse than rap-metal. Well, I wouldn’t go that far.
So this is the 1987 Calgary Flames of the NHL. You see, back in the 80′s we had a sport called hockey, and these guys were hockey players. The Flames’ slogan that season was "You Can’t Stop A Flame When It’s Red Hot." I will not argue that.
So watch the video here. And be thankful that the White Sox didn’t make one of these after they won the World Series.

Don’t sue me Tom.
Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie has confessed to urinating on stage during a recent concert.
The sexy singer said she had to douse herself with champagne in front of hundreds of Australian fans to disguise the evidence. [Keep Reading]
So there you go. We no longer have to speculate. She did, in fact, wet herself. Now it’s time to move on to the next Fergie issue: the eyebrow ring. It’s almost 2006, not 1996, it’s time to let it go Fergie. Enough is enough. I can tolerate the weak bladder, but the eyebrow ring is just too much. So if you lose the ring and go back to singing about your humps and all will be forgiven. Deal?
