Watching Landline TV’s video “True Blood in 60 Seconds” made me realize (shockingly for the first time) that what my daily routine has been missing is a scathing Lafayette type whose chief purpose is to coolly deliver cutting/fabulous commentary about what is really going on. As “Bill and Sookie” engage in their fightin’ vampire sex, “Lafayette” drawls “Hell no. They canceled Deadwood for this?” I have my Mad Men calendar page of Roger Sterling, but it doesn’t count. He never wears head scarves. [Buzzfeed via Vulture]
Other characters I’d want around 24/7 to do a running commentary about my creepy life: Bill McNeal (Phil Hartman) from NewsRadio, Lucille Bluth (Jessica Walter) from Arrested Development, Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) from 30 Rock, and Maryann Thorpe (Christine Baranski) from Cybill. You?
Oh and if April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza) from Parks and Recreation just sat there glaring at me all day, I’d probably be a lot more productive, but that’s kind of a different post (that I will never write). She’d probably feel weird and bolt pretty quickly because that’s all I ever do at the office, too. Occasionally I talk. It’s a real treat for everyone. Now answer the question!
