Funny 115 - version 2.0
Fun Times with Grandma
Heroes vs. Villains - episode 1
Okay, now we're back to one of my favorites. We're
back to James Clement. In fact, in another entry I think I
already called him the single most underrated funny character
James Clement, aka Captain Giggles.
episode 1 of Heroes vs. Villains, James Clement sits down and he gives
us one of the funniest, most awkward confessionals in Survivor history.
It's not the flashiest moment on the Funny 115.
It's not the most memorable. It certainly won't
longest writeup. But if you are looking for a scene where a
takes a story that really isn't all that funny, but he somehow -makes-
it funny, then you need look no further than James explaining the fun
times he had with his great great grandma when he was a kid.
James? Care to take us back to those magical halcyon days on
the old chicken farm?
Has grandma issues
episode one of Heroes vs. Villains, and the Heroes have just managed to
catch three chickens who were out wandering around in the jungle canopy.
And you know what that means when you have ten starving players on your
Free chickens? Starving castaways? A boiling
That means it is time for a chicken feast!
No longer under Shambo's protection
anyway, J.T. walks over to one of the chickens and... well, as someone
like J.T. would do... he decides to kill it old school. He
the chicken. He picks it up. And he twists its neck
until its little brown head pops off.

The Chicken Slayer
the rest of the tribe is completely horrified by this ritualistic
chicken deheading, there is one member of the Heroes who isn't all that
grossed out by it at all. Because, you see, there is one
of the Heroes tribe who actually has
witnessed something like this before.
James Clement watches, and is reminded of his childhood.
In fact, this whole chicken deheading ritual sort of reminds
him of a very touching memory from his youth.
We zoom in... as James takes us on a nostalgic flashback back to his
-Insert Wayne's World Flashback
Yeah J.T., he did it old school. He just
by the neck and spin it around 'til it was done."
"My great great grandmother did that to me one time when I was three.
And scared the life out of me."
took one and grabbed it by its neck and spun it around and popped his
head off, and then let it run around. It was traumatic."
"Like we were screamin', we didn't know what to do."
"And, I don't know. (pause). It was good times."
Kind of. Kind of... very.
(pause). It was
traumatic. (struggling) But it was good... it was

Ah yes. James Clement. One of my favorites.
The only person alive who could make a traumatic story about his
grandma deheading a chicken both disturbing and sweet.
