Poll: Did Ted Forth go too far today or not?

I think he went just far enough. She's horrible and she needs to hear that.

Charlene said...

Not too far; just counterproductive. The mother-in-law now has the perfect opportunity to play the poor, poor, innocent victim to her "mean" son-in-law. It won't clue her in to the fact that she's horrible, far from it: it simply justifies her attitude.

If anything it's too bland compared to that awful, awful slur she just made. Really: what a monster.

Charles said...

Nope. She's just lucky he didn't unleash a robot monkey on her.

Thumper said...

He could have said much worse... ;)

Aaron Poehler said...

Nah, she had it coming. You don't get respect for being old, you get respect for acting like a human being.

That would be a terrible thing to say to a real grandmother, but it's completely hilarious.

He went awesome. Way to show spine ted.

Considering that his reptilian brain is crying out to turn her into a lovely minced side dish, I think he showed remarkable restraint.

If you push Ted's buttons as often as Sally's mom does, sometimes candy comes out. Not too far.

PNB Dave said...

Nope, not too far at all.

No! I wanted to say, go Ted!! And considering I am a pscyh nurse of 30 years, that's a heartfelt response. We need to set boundaries sometimes. Someone like Laura is never going to "get it"- don't bother trying. Just protect yourself from such persons. I am SO glad that Ted modeled to the world that it's OK to protect oneself!

Please please let Sally follow suit and set boudaries too, with Mom AND sister! Why should we let anyone ruin our Thanksgivings?? America is watching and hoping Sal!
