Sarah Silverman and others lampoon 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' in Funny or Die video
Stars including Sarah Silverman, Thomas Lennon, John Cho, Dave Holmes, and “Weird Al” Yankovic appear in a new Funny or Die video that has them skewering “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” as members of the organization G.A.Y.S. (Guys Against You Serving). Silverman wins my vote for best joke: “I don’t think you can fit in the cockpit of an F-16 if you’re wearing a tutu. And I don’t think it’s safe…. You probably think that means I don’t want ballerinas in our military. Not true.” (She then explains that she supports ballerinas as spies.) Holmes takes the prize for the most genuinely convincing argument, citing the two wars we’re waging, the stack of intelligence we don’t have the manpower to translate, the recession, the $363 million spent investigating and discharging gay soldiers, and recruiting and training their replacements. But, he concludes, “Two guys kissing is gross.” Watch it below.
