Tisha on Tosh.0.

Given all the doom and gloom on the blog lately, here’s a little ray of god damn sunshine.

A while back I got to meet one of Christina‘s friends on a visit to St. Louis, Tisha.  She was a plucky, fun lady who was born without arms.  I even got to interview her (and get my ass kicked by her).

It seems now that she has caught on and she’s being interviewed by other guys, and you know how jealous I get.  I just don’t think it’s going to work out between us.  :P

Make sure you watch the whole thing, because it’s all about Tisha once you get past the intro jokes.

If you want to learn more about Tisha and to get a gander at her art, my interview goes a little more in-depth than Tosh’s (and was edited by the lovely Christina to show a lot more of the deep stuff, like art and religion).

You should also check out Tisha’s youtube channel:)

You guys are wonderful.
PERSONAL: Sorry to disappoint you, Julian.

    Tosh Rape Apologist Point Oh? Really?
    No thanks. I won’t waste a moment of my precious time on him unless it’s to speak out against anyone giving the guy a forum. This is me speaking out.

      Come for the Tisha, stay for the Tisha.

      • veganatheist01

        Yeah, because the Tisha is GREAT. (As always. Love her laugh :D)

        • christinastephens

          You get precious many laughs out of her in this episode, too!

    I’m with Ibis3 here. I do think Tisha is an amazing young woman. But I can’t do anything that is supporting Daniel Tosh even a teensy bit. I’m just sorry that no one else has seen fit to recognize Tisha’s accomplishments yet; here’s hoping that someone less odious will pick up her story soon!

    • christinastephens

      Oh other people have seen fit to recognize her…

      They just haven’t aired those things yet. =D They are on the way.

    I could watch approximately five seconds of Tosh and I had to turn it off. He’s a vile, malicious person.

    • christinastephens

      You probably shouldn’t watch the last 6 minutes of JT’s interview with Tisha, then. JT was much more malicious – and the most malicious comments were Tisha’s idea! The three of us were sitting there brainstorming the meanest, most horrible things we could come up with.

      Tisha reports that Tosh is actually super nice in person, but his comedic character is that of a vile person to make fun of vile people.

      Of course, that makes it easy for you to be seen as a vile person rather than someone mocking vile people by being vile, so yeah. I can see why people don’t like him. You’re not supposed to like him.

        Then, I’m sorry. It’s badly done.

        He’s not creating a caricature to be mocked. A good example of that is Colbert. He revels in the slime he spouts. His primary fanbase is the kind of filth he’s supposed to be caricaturing, which should be pretty telling.

      • Nate Frein

        As an addendum, I really don’t care whether or not he’s trying to be a caricature. His response to the woman who told him rape wasn’t funny wasn’t nice, nor was it satire. It was just disgusting.

          I primarily just want to support Tisha because she’s my bff, and this is one of her public appearances and I thought she did a good job and had fun.

          She also is scheduled to appear on a talk show with a host whom I don’t like, who is often maligned in the skeptic community, and I’ll support her then too.

          • Nate Frein

            I’m not telling you not to support her. I’m not telling you not to watch the show.

            I’m saying, I personally will not support Tosh.0. I will not give him more traffic. I respect Tisha and I respect what she’s gone through. But I don’t agree with her appearance here. I don’t agree with her tacit approval of Daniel Tosh.
