Another Take on "It's A Wonderful Life"

Last year I took on America's most favorite Christmas movie, which has dubious values.

This year, Craig Ferguson dissects it in a very post-modern way (starting at 5:10):

That was pretty entertaining, but I was really cracking up at the lesbians in pantsuits thing. Had to show it to a friend of mine because she and her partner are all about the pantsuits.

hahaha I never heard that about pantsuits before so I thought they were making it up on the spot. Their "lesbian row" is a running gag and anyone who happens to sit in those seats is a lesbian even if it's men.

So funny. I rarely see his show but really like it when I do. I don't remember that Geoff skeleton before. Was it always there? Is there some back story?

My wife and I watch Its a Wonderful Life every year. Each year I have different feelings about it. I always tear up with the young George gets smacked in the ear by the pharmacist and also at the end. But the older I get the more I think George was such a sap as he does the "christian self-sacrificing poor me but some day I will be rewarded" BS.

Geoff was made about a year & a half ago by Grant Imahara from Mythbusters. The skeleton robot idea came from some interwebs meme among the show's fans.

I used to love that show but I have had the same reaction as you. Over the years I respect George less and less
