Hollywood Celebrates Martin Luther King Day

Today celebrities are celebrating Martin Luther King Day by celebrating themselves at the Golden Globes Awards. Marcia Cross of Desperate Housewives said as she walked down the red carpet, "I just really feel honored to share this day with Martin Luther King. I think all of us here tonight share a common goal with Mr. King. He was famous. We are famous. He fought for the rights of poor people and minorities and I pay my gardener a dollar more than minimum wage and I wouldn't dream of reporting him to the INS. If Doctor King were alive today I'd nominate him for a Cecil B. DeMille Award for that great speech he gave about sleeping and how important a goodnight's rest is. Here's to you Mr. King and the rest of the grape pickers of the United States!"
John Turlock, creator of the Golden Globes, said in a press release, "The Golden Globes are taking a page from Dr. King's book and honoring minorities by only awarding statues to homosexual actors, or actors playing homosexuals in movies. Thank god for Capote and Brokeback Mountain."
Melissa Ethridge and Lucy Lui will close the show with a cover of the classic Disney movie song, "We Are Siamese If You Please" from Lady and the Tramp.

I plan on DVR'ing that closing act!
