Dept. of New Best Friends

Zach Galifianakis is wearing a wine hat. That is all.


  1. Dorian Speed says

    My husband and I are in complete disagreement as to the funniness of Zach Galifianakis. I think the trailer for the new Robert Downey Jr. road movie is hilarious, and he only laughed at the part where they drive into the ditch on purpose.

    Fortunately, we both like early Steve Martin.

  2. Matthew Lickona says

    Like Steve Martin, his stand-up is groundbreaking and amazing. He is in danger of becoming a stock character – "guy who says uncomfortable things and is socially awkward" after the monster success of The Hangover. But he's built up a lot of good will.

    Really? He didn't laugh at "My dad would never do that. He loved me"? He's a tough nut.

  3. Dorian Speed says

    He's not a fan of what we have decided to call "random humor." This also includes Andy Samberg and most other SNL sketches. Some day I am going to post the Venn diagram we have come up with to depict our differing senses of humor.

    I actually haven't even seen "The Hangover" and am mainly familiar with him from his SNL appearance. Which I'm sure was compromised to appeal to Middle America.

  4. Matthew,

    He seems to have a drinking problem…

    Like Robert Hays in Airplane.


  5. Southern Expat says

    You know, it looks more to me like a pouring problem, but then you miss out on a nice little movie quote.

  6. Matthew Lickona says

    Well, if you don't pour properly, you don't get to drink quite as much, and that's a problem.

  7. Southern Expat says

    If I were not pseudonymous, I would suggest that we all photograph ourselves with similar get-ups (mine would probably involve Oreos) for an Official Korrektiv Team Photo Pastiche.

    You know, as part of the PR campaign.

  8. Rufus McCain says

    "I never could drink that blood and call it wine …"

  9. Mine, Vodka.


  10. Seppy,

    But that's exactly how the joke works in Airplane….

    Hays making a mess of his scotch on the rocks…

    I used to have a khaki shirt like the one he wears in that movie, too.
