Oh, My God

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of seeing Margaret Cho in Toronto while she was touring with her I'm The One That I Want show.  I just saw an episode of her new television series "The Cho Show" and it reaffirmed why I like her so much.  Smart and funny always win the race.

Someone pointed out this excellent rant to me entitled I'm A Christian, You Fuckers! from her blog.  It's righteous and I'm pretty sure God fucking well approved her message.

That Margaret Cho rant was awesome. I'd hate to see what she has to say about us atheists! Haha

SkylersDad said...

Nice rant! Margaret Cho is awesome!

Bubs said...

Ah, you lucky man. I've never gotten to see her in person. I just saw that rant a couple days ago, and it cracked me up.

Franki said...

Oh please tell me Margaret Cho has gotten off her soapbox and gotten back to being funny?!

I loved her so.

Maybe it's just because I have sex with women, but I don't find Margaret Cho funny at all. Maybe tomorrow's the day I change my tune.

Fuckin A

FranIAm said...

I do have a soft spot for that fucking Margaret fucking Cho.

And do keep in mind my own Christianity.

I agree that God invented fucking profanity and all the other fucking shit that so many so-called Christians shrink back at.

Well fuck them.

Ahhhh. I feel better now and I loved her rant.

BTW, I saw her in March of 2003 in Las Vegas and she was great. She had this mellow black dude comedian as an opener.

In December 2006, I was in LA for the annual holiday party of my VUMGF (very up market gay friends) and the bartender (they are very upmarket and hire people to do everything, love them!!)looked so familiar.

Well as it happens he was Margaret's opening act. He was filling in as a bartender as a favor to the caterer who needed him at the last minute.

Or so he would have you think!

She's got awesome hair.

Dale- I got your note about a cartoon and I'd love to pen one for you, but I need a little help. Can you think of something you'd like to have drawn? KBL or Honeypot? I can draw most anything you'd like but I need a starting point. I could draw you looking through binoculars at the neighbors, but I'm sure you can think of something better than that. Just leave me a comment here or over at my place and I whip one out as fast as I can. If you give me multiple ideas, I'll draw them all and you can pick your favorite.

Cheers,
Doc

I'm not about to question or ask about God's sexuality, but I'd imagine that he'd be a top...









...I'm just sayin', is all. I mean, the way he put Job, Moses and just about everybody else through the wringer, strikes me as toppish.

Dale said...

It was wild and wooly and hit the mark I think James. I'm sure her God loves you too.

Glad you like the Cho too S-Dad, she done good with this one!

She's pretty hilarious in person Bubs although every now and then she has a story that's so honest and disgusting, it's a bit hard not to squirm.

She's funny still Franki but she still gets on the soapbox now and then which really is something she should be commended for I think. Go read it!

Are you having sex with a man that'll change your mind Pistols? Is that what you're saying? Stranger things.

And B, C, and D too Bluez!

That God's one smart fucker Fran I have to admit. I'm shocked to hear you're stalking M. Cho and her opening acts too all while getting hammered at swanky functions. Okay, I'm not shocked.

Don't forget her tattoos Barbara, they're awesome too. Maybe her hair is just a long flowy tattoo?

I sent a couple of ideas your way Doc over there at your Social Zymurgy. I'm bound to love it even if it's just a squiggly line and a dot or two representing my brain activity.

Haha, excellent reasoning there Cormac, you may be right. But you tell her, I'm not.

Allison said...

That was brilliant. I wasn't aware she had a blog.

I need to search out some of her clips on YouTube too. Yay procrastination!

Leonesse said...

I get this odd look of fear in my eyes when someone mentions they are a christian. It usually means they are bigoted, closed-minded, judgmental hypocrites. At least from most I have met.

Katie Schwartz said...

Fucking brilliant post. How much did you love "Butch in the streets, femme in the sheets"?! Ah, she's flawless our Mags.

Coaster Punchman said...

She is my hero. I was at a party with her once and I didn't try to talk to her. I'm the fucking idiot fucker.

Mistress La Spliffe said...

I'm not the world's biggest fan of Margaret Cho but I loved the post, and I'm not sure there's ever been anything funnier in the history of everything than her 'gay daddy' story, told as told by her mum.

Slaygirl said...

Loved that. Thanks for posting it Dale.

katrocket said...

I fucking love Margaret Cho!

Franki said...

I'm okay with a soapbox sometimes, as long as it isn't disguised as a comedy show...you know?

Holly said...

oh your god indeed, Dale! Thanks for sharing. That was just what I needed today.

Beth said...

Brilliant post, Ms. Cho!

VE said...

Pat, I'd like to buy a profanity word...what? You're all out? They were used in some rant? Wow...

BeckEye said...

Sorry pal, this is where we part ways. I love the Griffinator, but I can't stand this Cho broad.

Dale said...

I actually wasn't aware she had one either Allison but I think once she saw you and I had one, she knew it was time.

Don't worry Leonesse, I'm always wary too. It's okay to be afraid.

That line stood out for me too Katie, perhaps because it didn't have the eff word in it? Good for Margaret. Remind me to say the word Margaret sometime on an audio post - my accent gets super strong and East Coast Canada.

You could have been on her show by now Coaster Punchman. Fucking hell man!

Her mother's on the show too Mistress so I guess she doesn't really need to make fun of her as much now. Some of the mother stories are friggin' awesome.

I live to give Slaygirl. How've you been anyway?

And I fucking love you for fucking loving her Katrocket. Okay, I fucking loved you before but still.

Yep, I know what you're saying Franki. Now get off your soapbox! :-)

Now if we could just get the rest of the fucking world to read it huh Holly?

Beth, I will pass on your congratulations. Okay, I won't but if she could be here, I konw she'd thank you.

You have to get up pretty fucking early VE before all the best motherfucking words are all taken.

Beckeye, it's sad that we have to break up over this. Did you read the rant though?

Chris said...

I agree with Leonesse. Anyone who mentions their religion in everyday conversation seems to be a bit... fanatical and scary to me.

I haven't read Ms. Cho's doohicky yet. I'm not even sure who she is. I'll have to look into that.

Dale said...

Go read it Chris, I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I think anyone who mentions anything over and over and brings it up in every conversation is worthy of my eyebrow raising.

the princess said...

that was awesome. i bet she would be something to see live. nice post dale, thanks

Slaygirl said...

Been really good. Thanks for asking...and my new stapler ROCKS! (had to get one after your stapler post)

Melly/Melody/or Mel said...

I love the Cho. She reminds me of a female Lewis Black..when it comes to religion...only she's rantier!!

Dale said...

She was a whole lotta funny in person Princess, check your local listings, you never know when she might head your way.

Congratulations on the stapler Slaygirl. Now I know all will be okay.

Definitely ranty goodness from her Melly, I love it.

X. Dell said...

She's quite funny.

Dale said...

That she is X. Dell.
