Jimmy Fallon is not loved around these parts. With good cause, since he’s a one-note hack who couldn’t even hold Jim Belushi’s jock when it comes to “comedy” (because at least Belushi can keep a straight fucking face). So when it was announced that NBC was giving Fallon the post-“Tonight Show” slot next year, when Conan takes over for Leno, many were understandably apoplectic. Last week, this story took an inexplicable turn when a rumor was heavily circulated that the Roots would become Fallon’s house band (although some deemed it truth, I believe it remains unconfirmed at this point).

The Roots are awesome. Especially their drummer, ?uestlove, who’s beyond awesome. So this news bummed me out.

Apparently I wasn’t alone, as Godtopus decided that It needed to send a message of Its own. And so it was only a day later that I read news of the Roots’ tour bus crashing in Paris last week. Thankfully, all were fine. But take a hint, boys, and make sure that this rumor does not become reality. Because if it’s confirmed that y’all are becoming Fallon’s band, neither I nor anyone else on this humble website can be responsible for the fury that Gotopus might unleash.
