[Editor's note] Ok. Now that you've seen it, let's talk about Ann Curry. From her obnoxiously bright outfit to the reference mistake at the end, this clip pretty much sums up every exasperating characteristic in Ann's arsenal of annoying.
Did you really have to name all those people while standing in gale force winds, Ann? Did you really?
What gets me most about this whole thing is that she is completely unaware of how annoying she is. Matt and Al know it (Did you notice the look they exchanged while she was droning on with that list?). I'm sure Katie and Meredith knew it, too. The crew of the Today show for sure know it. And dare I say, AMERICA knows it. Yet she, the epicenter of all things detestable in morning news, remains blissfully in the dark.
I wish I didn't feel this way about her. I also wish she'd stop hogging the lines from Matt. I wish she'd stop making jokes that no one gets or laughs at. I wish she'd stop badgering her interviewees. I wish she'd stop leaning into her interviewees. I wish she'd let her interviewees respond completely without her interruptions. I wish she would stop interjecting with her opinions on things, no one cares. Above and beyond all else, I wish she would stop throwing herself at Brad Pitt.
Someone once told me that if you ever want to ruin some one's day, just honk your horn at them. That's what Ann Curry is for me-- an annoying early morning horn honk.
