Season Sux’s New Showtime Lezberado is a Muppet Named Riese

Hey lesbos and lesbo-allies! You know that show Lezberado that Showtime does online? It’s like this girl, and she talks crazy about The L Word and herself, etc. Well, the old Lezberado is on the lam for killing a mobster’s wife, throwing Jenny in the pool, poisoning Mr. Piddles and announcing at a press conference that she could fly. So they had to find someone new. Do you like how I’m making this intro paragraph as long as possible? It’s ’cause I just had four shots of espresso and I’m in Los Angeles with Haviland and! also. also. also.

It’s me!
