The Queen of Quips

Oscar hosts

I somehow found myself surfing channels on the old tube tonight which is quite unusual seeing as how there is NOTHING on TV these days, and I happened to catch Ellen DeGeneres’ acceptance speech for her People’s Choice Awards. Like everything else on the show, it’s all pre-taped as no actors/celebrities are crossing the writers picket lines (go writers!).

Anything Ellen says or does, I have to stop and listen because she is the queen of crackup and her bumbling lines are such comedic genius. Apparently she was answering a couple of questions posed by “The People” and the second question was “You give such great acceptance speeches. What’s your secret?” Ellen pauses thoughtfully, “Hmmm.” She leans forward a little towards the camera and says completely serious, “Cinnamon.” I busted up! And then she leans even closer and says, “Don’t tell Oprah!”

Seriously, is she just not hilarious?! 🙂

p.s. found a shaky video of this on YouTube. Still worth watching!
