Sarah Silverman has really done it now.
She’s moved from the gentle humor of “I’m f***ing Matt Damon” and the cerebral politics of the “Great Shlep” to shameless self-promotion of her site, Sell The Vatican.
On that site you can see her flaunt her ideas, call herself a “genius” and show a soft-focus picture of her as an inset. And what’s that big “idea”? To sell the Vatican to feed the world. As if that’s an original idea — as if that’s going to bring Arby’s to Ethiopia.
Stick to the thought-provokingly sick jokes, and gay/drugs/dog-related humor of the series Sarah, don’t move into the genuinely satirical world of practice what you preach. Live humbly doesn’t mean “live humbly” — everyone knows that. And remember, the Pope wasn’t called God’s Rottweiler because he walked around on a leather leash with studs. Well, not just because of that.
