Not since Mickey Rooney slobbered his way to Emmy paydirt in 1981's haunting movie-of-the-week Bill (and its overlooked follow-up, Bill: On His Own) has mankind received an affront so egregious; in brief: Rosie O'Donnell feigning Down's Syndrome by yelling out of the corner of her mouth in Anjelica Huston's special-ed magnum opus Riding the Bus With My Sister.

There are those who feel deep discomfort in cackling uncontrollably at such sights, as if there's some sort of implicit slight to retarded folks in doing so. But those of us who fully realize the towering obscenity of fading-profile celebrities showing off their nonexistent chops by "bravely" getting their 'tard on realize that the real insult is directed toward all of us, and perhaps the only defense we have left is to laugh.
