Great insults of our time


I didn't really think she did a horrible job. Yes, I felt it was as lethargic as a drunk turtle dozing under a sunflower after ingesting a bottle of Valium, and I thought it had all the build of a one-story motel, but, I mean, the girl didn't kill anybody. She didn't run over your foot. She just cut a very calm and somewhat boring take of one of the peppiest, happiest, most popular songs in history.
I had never previously hear of Allee Willis - co-writer of Earth, Wind and Fire's immortal 'September' - but after this majestically languid put-down of Taylor Swift's cover she is among my favourite people of all time.

I must dig deeper, but in the meantime let's just relish " lethargic as a drunk turtle dozing under a sunflower after ingesting a bottle of Valium" one more time.
