Watch out Premature WHCD Newbies!

Uh oh. Buzzfeed is already inviting guests to the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. As we noted early yesterday morning, they invited the lovely and delightful baseball nutbag José Canseco just before midnight the other night and he accepted. The potential problem? They only recently joined the Correspondents’ Association, and no tables have been paid for or assigned.

According to our sources, the association always warns members not to start inviting people until they get confirmed tables. The forms to order tables don’t go out until March 1.
We’re all adults here, right? We’re sure it’ll all work out just fine or else there will be a goofy GIF or listicle in FNC’s and WHCD Prez Ed Henry‘s future. In other words, 50 Cat Expressions That Could Kill. Or, has Ed ever looked at his own boogers on live TV?
As it turns out, BuzzFeed isn’t the only premature offender. We hear other news organizations have been inviting their guests for months.
We asked BuzzFeed for comment.
