I just knew The Soup would help us make sense of this Paula Deen mess. Joel McHale noted that Deen’s impassioned “I is what I is” speech to Matt Lauer on the Today show made her sound like a “racist Popeye,” and marveled that with her plea for any Americans who never said something they wish they couldn’t take back to “pick up that stone and throw it so hard that it kills me,” Deen had invented a new carnival game.
“Paula says she’s hoping to become the spokesperson for Nutella,” said McHale, “since that’s her second-favorite N-word.” Watch it here:

Later on, The Soup’s “Style Pop vs. Barnyard Animals” mashup was amazing. This is one of the most annoying things I’ve ever seen, in the most beautiful way. God, I’m SICK.
Now where is my giant jar of Nutella?
