Yeah, I thought Chris Columbus was too random to be a joke. But he seems even *more* random as a pick for favorite director. Couldn't even think of a single film he'd directed- had to look up his filmography. But hey, I did grow up on his shit- the "Home Alone" movies, "Mrs. Doubtfire" and hey he also wrote (but didn't direct) "Gremlins", "The Goonies" and the "Little Nemo" movie. These were all staples of my childhood, so I guess I kind of get it.
There's a porn star who looks like Julia Louis-Dreyfuss? How do I not know this?
I've probably seen a few comedians that are even less funny than Larry The Cable Guy but they few bits I've seen of his have been pretty awful. And though I can understand why someone might find him funny, listing him as your all time favorite is pretty hard to swallow.
