Rape Is Hilarious, Part 38

[Trigger warning.]

Shaker Anna just sent me the link to this article about more fuckery at the VMAs last night, in which some of host Russell Brand's content was recounted under the headline: "Russell Brand makes saucy jokes about leading ladies at VMAs."

The piece recounts how Brand implied he would try to have sex with Katy Perry if she used him as a shoulder to cry on after not winning any awards, said he was trying to seduce Lady Gaga, and, referring to (false) rumors that she is intersex, said, "If I pull her leotard to one side and find something a little extra there, I will just make it stiff and hang my hat on it," and let loose this "hilarious" zinger about Megan Fox:
She has admitted she is a little bit cuckoo upstairs and I have trained in psychiatry. So Megan, if you do have a little dizzy spell, love, I could probably drop you a little pill. You can go and have a lie down in my dressing room. You might get some crazy dreams about being visited by a scarecrow, a perfumed weirdo leaning over you. But let me tell you, that's a common side-effect. Megan, take your medicine.
HAR HAR! Isn't date rape just totes hilarious?!

Note to MSNBC or Splash News or whoever came up with that headline: Rape is not "saucy." It's criminal.
