Good call. He is an ugly person. I was about two feet from him at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am a couple of years ago, and man is he rugged! For a man with that much money you'd think he would be able to look better, but he doesn't.
Gottfried was actually pretty funny a couple weeks ago on the Dan Patrick Show. Other than that I've always found him quite annoying, though I haven't seen or heard really a whole lot of him. Glad to see RJ and Colmes on the list. They are well-deserving, as is Bin Laden. Control freaks aren't sexy, so it makes sense that Steinbrenner's on the list. Michael Jackson is more of a freak than unsexy. I have to adamently disagree with Mike D being on this list. The guy's rich, can dance, can rap, can play his own instruments, and is always hilarious doing them all. Should not be on that list!

I would post it here, but it loses some effect, and its not PG.
I don't know - listening to the same joke told 100+ times over two hours doesn't really appeal to me, no matter how funny the joke is.
Was that movie OK, or did it drag quite a bit?
well the great thing about the joke is it's pretty different for each comedian. i thought the movie was pretty good but then i'm a big stand up fan.
Yeah, it's extremely different for each comedian.
The only thing similar about the joke is the intro and the punchline.
The movie is actually really interesting. I wasn't ready to see it again once I was done, but the point of the joke is that its become sort of a backroom thing among comedians over the years. It really gives a nice view behind the wall into the comedy business, through the lens of this one disgusting joke, which is adapted by each comedian.
