I Love 2001!

Filed Under Humor

Announcer: 

So you think you’re an aughties - a zeroties - the ohties - oh, whatever - fan?  OK, Osama but are you ready for this jelly? It’s “I Love the 2000s” and this is 2001! The terror! The TV! The Taliban! The flicks! The fundamentalist Muslims! A totally scarring year that gave us these burning questions:  Why do other countries hate us so much?

Mo Rocca: 

Could be decades of exporting a culture full of values our foreign policy doesn’t even come close to emulating. Or maybe they just didn’t like Rush Hour 2.

Announcer: 

How did Saddam Hussein found Al Qaida?


Hal Sparks: 

He planned 9/11 with the help of the WWE’s Iron Sheik and Jafar from the movie Aladdin.

Announcer: 

and… How newsworthy is it if it only makes the crawl?

  Michael Ian Black: 

Those tickers are very effective. When I am trembling in fear on my couch, I need to know that sales of American flags are up 85%. (pause) I need to. (pause) Desperately.

Announcer: 

The answers to those questions, plus   Who sent the tabloids anthrax if it wasn’t J. Lo?  and… Did irony really die or was it just cryogenically frozen until the nostalgia clip show could be invented?  Because you love the 2000s. Because you’re still having sex with firemen, this is 2001!
