Readers are telling me Geena Davis was actually funny last night (I didn’t see it; linked to a post about it earlier):
I am not a Geena Davis fan, partly because I would have expected her to behave exactly as Ms Johnson thinks she did. However, I saw the show and Ms Davis was clearly making a joke at her audience’s expense.
She paused sufficiently before saying that the incident did not happen.
was clear to me that she was sucking in the audience, who were applauding and cheering her account of the little girl incident. When she announced
that it did not really happen, she was sarcastic as if saying “Of course it did not, you guys are idiots!” Then she paused again before rubbing it in a bit more by adding “But it could have [happened].”
Ms Davis got this one right.
