“Mouthpiece Theater” Has Been Killed

0333.jpg
WaPo announced it’s canceling “Mouthpiece Theater.” Really? Did someone get the note the name sounds like a spoofy porn title? Or a nickname to the Tomkat Theater in WeHo? Get it – it’s sounds like a oral sex on a dude and how that can’t be AT ALL funny is the greatest mystery of this whole ordeal.

Howard Kurtz writes:

Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli killed the satirical video series Wednesday after harsh criticism of a joke about Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, which had prompted him to pull the latest episode from the paper’s Web site Friday night. The Post staffers who appeared in the videos, Dana Milbank and Chris Cillizza, agreed with the decision and apologized in separate interviews.

Plus we like to think the the death (ahem) blow was made by Andy Cobb‘s brilliant parody we posted yesterday. The other version is the web series imploded under the weight of its own lameness. Either way.
