DIDDY'S DANCING LIKE THE OPENING OF SEASON 19 OF THE COSBY SHOW: There's comedy, high comedy, and then there's TWoP's recap of the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards. On R. Kelly's mystifying "Trapped In The Closet" pantomime, they write (in part):
Pamie: I love this. He's playing all the parts and the audience is listening!
Pamie: "Chuck!"
Djb: "Rufus!"
Stee: Is this August Wilson's tenth play in his ten-play cycle of the African-American experience in the 20th Century?
Pamie: They rehearsed this and he knows he needs a cell phone and a gun as props, and they didn't give him either. They gave him a bed he's not going to use, a wall that he will not reference, and door that will never open.

. . .

Pamie: Shhh! How does R. Kelly know all of this happened?
Djb: He's the omniscient narrator, Pam.
Stee: This is seriously like a monologue exercise in acting class.
Pamie: It is. It's like Sybil.
Stee: Eric Bogosian's sad somewhere.
