Promoting a ridiculous sit-com based on an insurance commercial is bad enough, but I almost can’t bring myself to give a shout out to that stupid show with the idiotic women who spend each day carefully destroying anything feminists have achieved to date. BUT, this is too good.
A few weeks ago, Sherri Shepherd (a “comedian” and the newest co-host of The View) answered, “I don’t know” to Whoopi Goldberg’s question, “Is the world flat?” Sherri explained that she had never really thought about it, attempting to justify her ignorance by saying she was too busy trying to feed her son. Barbara Walters pointed out that she could do both, while viewers at home wondered about the truth of that statement considering the evidence at hand. (Video here.)
The next day, Sherri explained that she was caught off guard by the question, and that she actually had known that the world was round. I’m a bit skeptical of that, though — I think that what actually happened was that on her way home that evening she gazed out over the ocean and wondered why she couldn’t see the bottom of ships in the distance, eventually concluding that the most probable reason was due to the curvature of the earth. Though she briefly hypothesized that perhaps this was simply a grand test God created just to ensure her faith was intact, she then walked past a Planet Hollywood and noticed for the first time ever that their logo consisted of a giant orb representing the planet Earth.
So anyway, she now says that yes, the Earth is round (we’ll let her go on that instead of harping on the old “not perfectly spherical, actually an oblate spheroid” thing). But, she does still say that evolution is not, you know, a real thing.
So all that comprises one part of what you need to know to enjoy the following clip. The other part you need to know is that there are these commercials for auto insurance that star guys dressed up as cavemen living among present-day humans. They’ve been given a sit-com that should be debuting any day now, something that ordinarily would be considered a sign of the apocalypse. BUT, the cavemen are played by actors who are actually pretty fricking smart and funny.
So, here we are. Click here and find out what happens when Sherri meets a caveman.
