Sarah Silverman and her Singing Vagina

Comedy Central is showing Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert For Autism Education.

I was channel surfing and came across the listing on my cable system. I thought, Great, an Autism fundraiser. That's wonderful.

I'm sorry to say that I did not find this fundraiser funny or educational. Which is a shame because the title of Comedy Central's endeavor indicated that this would be educational.

I do want to thank all of the stars who showed up to perform and to man the phone lines. Thank you truly from the bottom of my heart. My son totally dug Maroon 5.

Which brings me to Sarah Silverman.

Sarah Silverman is a comedienne. She is most noted for her relationship with Jimmy Kimmel and their hilarious videos about her relationship with Matt Damon and his relationship with Ben Affleck- You can check these out on YouTube. During the fundraiser, Sarah did a routine which wasn't particularly funny. She did mention that her cousin has Autism and that she(Sarah) cares about Autistic kids, Hey, thanks Sarah.

But then-THEN she sang Amazing Grace and was accompanied by her singing vagina and her singing booty. Her booty sang bass in case you were wondering.

Do we really need Sarah Silverman's singing vagina to help our cause, to help our children?

The production did have vignettes of educational value, but after being serenaded by Sarah Silverman's singing vagina, who cares?

I think the people at Comedy Central had their hearts in the right place. I hope they have a fundraiser every year. I hope next year they out more thought into the cause and what is needed for our families and less, well I really don't see how there could be less thought, into the entertainment.

Umm, no, no we did not need to see that.

My neighbor ran across an interesting article in the March issue of Wired magazine about Autism. She passed it on to me and I thought you might be interested in it.

I do not remember what it is called but it is about IQ testing and ways to view Autism.

I'm glad that I didn't see it because I'm not a fan of Sarah Silverman. There always has to be one dumb person who has to run a good cause - sigh.

Best wishes!

There are a lot of times I'm glad I don't have cable and that would be one of them. That people can ruin a great cause by acting like total idiots is very sad. Sorry you had to see that.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
