Dear Tina Fey


“Dear Internet” by Tina Fey
From PerezHilton.com/Posted by jerkstore on Wednesday, 1/21/2009, 11:21 P.M.

jerkstore:
“In my opinion Tina Fey completely ruined SNL. The only reason she’s celebrated is because she’s a woman and an outspoken liberal. She has not a single funny bone in her body.”

Tina Fey:
“Dear jerkstore,

Huzzah for the Truth Teller! Women in this country have been over-celebrated for too long. Just last night there was a story on my local news about a “missing girl,” and they must have dedicated seven or eight minutes to “where she was last seen” and “how she might have been abducted by a close family friend,” and I thought, “What is this, the News for Chicks?” Then there was some story about Hillary Clinton flying to some country because she’s secretary of state. Why do we keep talking about these dumdums? We are a society that constantly celebrates no one but women and it must stop! I want to hear what the men of the world have been up to. What fun new guns have they invented? What are they raping these days? What’s Michael Bay’s next film going to be?
When I first set out to ruin SNL, I didn’t think anyone would notice, but I persevered because—like you trying to do a nine-piece jigsaw puzzle—it was a labor of love.
I’m not one to toot my own horn, but I feel safe with you, jerkstore, so I’ll say it. Everything you ever hated on SNL was by me, and anything you ever liked was by someone else who did it against my will.

Sincerely,
Tina Fey

P.S. You know who does have a funny bone in her body? Your mom every night for a dollar.”

    Oh, and fun to wake up earlier this morning to a Tina Fey generated smile. Nicely done, Ms. Fey. Style points. Now, I'm in the mood to read Bossypants again.

    Also, Roll Tide! Rolllllll Tide Roll! National Champs AGAIN! Bama 42 - Notre Dame 14. Roll Tide!

    (p.s. Throughout the day, I'll be thinking of S on her sad anniversary. Many prayers being whispered and hugs sent via the angels.)

  8. first of all happy anniversary Deb and Colin . i hope you have a great day and may their be many more anniversaries to celebrate .

    as to Tina Fey's reply to perez hilton , i can;t help feeling she has given him what he is looking for , an argument and attention . the best way to deal with any sort of troll , especially one that is trying to provoke , is to ignore them , makes them so angry when they don;t get the attention they seek . i know this from my own experience with my now dead you tube page. as my dad used to say , never argue with an idiot . people might not be bale to tell the difference ( presumably between you and the idiot !) .

    hilton is going to write what ever he wants to anyway and he can hide behind the american constitutional right to free speech to be as nasty as he likes .

    despite what i have just said i loved Tina Fey's reply . it did have did have a lot of style . though you can bet your last Euro Hilton will now write an anti feminist rant .

    to me it does raise an interesting question though , should the right to free speech come with responsibility .

    1. To quote a great person, Uncle Ben once said, "With great power comes great responsibility." I think having the freedom of speech is one of the biggest powers we have - and the most overlooked.

      Words shape our world. Words can either build someone up or destroy them. Words are imbued with more than just their literal definition. They're symbols, and images, and come attached with cultural meanings. And, people should be aware of any and all consequences that may arise from the words they use.

  11. Hello all,

    I was taught that if you have nothing nice to say about someone, don't say anything at all. Also, you're taught to take responsibility for anything you do and say. But... I believe that if you're willing to dish it out... you best be ready to receive it (although I think that's what he likes, to stir things up). I would've ignored this fool, as I've learned that ignoring someone sometimes works better. But that's me, I can't speak for Tina.

    I love this quote: "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt." Abraham Lincoln

    I know and have met many fools :-)

    Take care.

    P.S. Happy Anniversary Deb and Colin!!!

    1. Sheyla I too have issues with ignoring the fools as you say. Happy when I ignore, but if had such a witty response at my fingertips as this, I think I'd engage the fool. :-)

  13. I love this so much! Here is a quote that I have framed in my home: "A woman is like a tea bag--you don't know how strong she is until you put her in hot water."
    Happy Anniversary to you, Deb and Colin! Much love and happiness to you both!
