I used to think that this was the best Judge Judy ending ever, but now I know that this is:
I feel like keeping it out of context maximizes the absurdity since they all keep saying such outlandish things ("They're straight, we hate 'em."; "That's how life works, right? You just use people and then you move on."; "The guy's crazy, but he's not a bad friend...usually.") But if you must know, they're all in a band together (or at least many of them are). Everyone lived in the same house, except for the long-haired guy, who went out with the curly/asymmetrical-haired guy who says he loves to smash stuff outside. Long-haired was accused of throwing three TVs against the wall of their shared place during a six-person party, the second of which killed the girl's cat, Tripps. No one witnessed this but her because the four others were renting a movie from Redbox. When they returned she had already buried the cat in the yard. (Tracie has another clip from the episode up at Jezebel - note that I didn't rip off her rip of the end, though. I watched this at the gym when it aired, and whatever: I rip my own shit!)
Oh, also Curly/Asymmetry called Judge Judy "Mama" at one point, AC Slater style, but luckily for his continued existence, she didn't notice.
The whole thing seemed so weird and fake, like they had all dropped acid together before entering the courtroom. I think it might just be promo for their band, which I'm happy to lend a hand with as long as they're saying weird shit. I'm easy like that.
Update: A reader who'd like to remain anonymous wrote into Tracie and me to report his contact with Long-haired:
OK, the hipster kitty killer in question used to live with my current roommate. I've never seen him hurt an animal but he is one of the most hateful and self-involved shit talker that I've met. He plays nice but is really an insecure aging flavor of the week guy that clings to whatever scene will have him. I had problems with allowing him inside my house because of his destructive behavior at so many other places. He thinks it's all funny but never have I heard someone talk so much about themselves in my life. Also he definitely wears dead animals around his neck and thinks it's cool or different. Now I wonder if he killed those animals.
I guess he needs the attention. He really is the kind of guy that will use anyone. Did I mention he smells like shit most days too?
Just thought it was pretty funny that I actually know someone on JJ.
Maybe what you see is what you get, indeed?
