The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It? Contest: Jay Leno Accepting His Hasty Pudding Award

Last Friday, Jay Leno accepted the “Hasty Pudding” award at Harvard University (inventor of Facebook!), an annual award given out by the students to a famous comedian. I’m not sure if this is always the case, but according to Movieline, there was actually quite a bit required of this year’s recipient. Like, he basically had to do everything except for feats of strength. And apparently dudes dressed up in Pippi Longstocking drag is part of it? By the end of the night Jay Leno’s face fell off because it had been ROASTED. Here is my favorite diss of the evening:

“I think you’re funnier than Hamlet.” Halprin — as Letterman — said to Leno. “Reasons why — your face. I just love laughing at your face.”

KABURN! That is so mean and unstructured and lazy and ad hominem that it’s kind of hilarious. Good one, Harvard. (That joke cost that dude’s parents $45,000!) Anyway, put words in that stupid face! In the form of a caption! Winner will receive special mention in this week’s Monsters’ Ball, which actually might be better (and certainly easier) than receiving a Hasty Pudding award? I say that as a joke sometimes but I think this time it is probably true.
