‘MAGICAL ELVES’ ARE SHOOTING A D.C. REALITY SHOW, TOO: Yet another dumb new show about young rich sociopaths obsessed with power and clothes: “From the Emmy award-winning producers of Project Runway and Top Chef comes a new documentary series about the chic up and comers in our nation’s capital. If you are a Washington, D.C., society insider, recent college graduate or future political powerhouse, please e-mail us atcasting@magicalelves.com. You must be 21 or over and currently live in D.C. or be planning to move there in the next couple of months.” DON’T BELIEVE THEM! Magical elves (e.g. Mitt Romney) are known succubi. [Ezra Klein]

    Yay Meghan McCain can finally get herself a job!

    I thought Dennis Kucinich was Washington DC’s magic elf. My favorite magic elf remains Yes lead singer Jon Anderson, though.

    Mittens is a mean elf, I bet.

    Intern Riley is 21, right?

  • Godless Liberal

    Dear Jim: Fuck you for using that picture. Shit and piss do not come out of fabric easily.

  • the problem child

    Magicalelves will be disappointed when their cast turns out to be a bunch of people who like to waste time on Wonkette all day.

  • binarian

    If you go to their website you’ll see they’re pushing to produce things like “Air Guitar Nation” and “America’s Next Producer”. So this garbage isn’t a stretch at all for them.

    Someone make sure that this ad gets posted on LNS, please. The whole cast could be made up of legacy halfwits from Duke and UVa.

  • TGY

    Not me. I turn the other chic.

  • friendlyskies

  • bitchincamaro

    Something tells me there will be free “iPhones” on this one.

  • Larry McAwful

    I like Top Cat. I miss Burger Chef. But I just can’t get into Top Chef. Why? Why? WHY??!?!?!11?

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    I wrote them asking if I could be on the show. I claimed I worked for a drunken, abusive congressman. Think they’ll buy it?

    Bad address. Boy, am I disappointed.

  • Fly Over Girl

    Um … a succubus (plural succubi; from Latin succuba; “prostitute” ) is a *female* demon that seduces men. Got the Romney and boys thing though.

  • AbstinenceOnly Ed

    [re=446453]Fly Over Girl[/re]: Mittenz is in Incubus!??! Theyr RAWK!!!!

  • AggieDemocrat

    Great, just what we need. More douchebag shows for douchebags that show douchebags at their douchebaggiest.

    I hate everything.

    [re=446418]Larry McAwful[/re]: Nope, DC’s resident magic elf is long-time Michigan Senator Carl Levin. Though, if you want to split hairs he could be classified as D.C.’s resident gnome.
