Gotta love that Tina Fey lady. She’s always telling it like it is, with spot-on quips for every occasion. That’s probably why she’s paid the big bucks to be funny at the drop of a hat, while others (ahem, like myself) sit behind the computer screen for hours at a time trying to come up with “witty” that at least 2% of the people who read get a smirk or a chuckle (don’t tell me I don’t set the bar high, guys) out of it.
