Drop Dead Gorgeous

Drop Dead Gorgeous is still as funny and irrepressibly dry as the first time I saw it, even in spite of its existence within the very, very much overdone mockumentary genre.

    lol most of the responses individuals make are a bit spacey, every so often i ponder if they in fact read the article and threads before leaving your 2 cents or whether they simply look at the title of the blog post and craft the very first thought that pops into their brain. at any rate, it is really pleasing to read intelligent commentary from time to time in contrast to the very same, classic blog vomit which i mostly observe on the web good bye
