I thought that Ms. Wiig would smirk and grimace her way through this, but she was great. She let the material speak for itself, although her deft touch for the comic is apparent.This is the first time I heard of Kristen Wiig. I guess I am too out of it here. She actually read quite well--I wouldn't mind hearing her read something "real".
In high school my senior year, I was editor of The Orb, our literary magazine. We had to read EVERY submission, aloud to a committee and then select the poems for the issue. HUNDREDS of poems as bad as this, from young women pouring out their every hormonally charged feeling about not being loved, loving too much and how much they loved their Lord, Jesus Christ Almighty.And if it wasn't that it was Haiku. Bad, haiku.So Ms. Wiig gets a gold star for her reading! Been there.
You must watch her in "Bridesmaids." Very funny.
I did. And I was amazed at how complex the relationships were. I also laughed mah ass off when they all got explosive diarrhea.

Well, Kristen Wiig has a rare gift for oral interpretation. When I saw your title, I thought, "No!" Then I saw it was serious. Then I watched her reading and I thought "No!" These were actually published for public consumption? Argh!
