Wait a Minute — Who's Roasting Flava Flav?

Wait a Minute — Who's Roasting Flava Flav?

So I thought it was strange enough when Comedy Central announced that Flava Flav would be the "honoree" at this year's celebrity roast. What made him deserving: his status as a clock-wearing hype man, or his recent turn as the bachelor star of TV's weirdest dating show? (Granted, this is the network that once roasted Pamela Anderson, so I'm not really looking for logic.) But today, Comedy Central baffled me further by announcing the list of stars who will be roasting the Flav — and the list includes Carrot Top.

Now I'm sure there's a reason for this, probably having to do with some really unfunny black vs. white jokes. But I prefer to imagine that Flava Flav and Carrot Top are friends, buddies even, who call each other "Flava" and "C-Tizzle" and get together weekly to chat about their fame and fortune over Cristal mimosas. Or something.

The rest of the roasters are: Greg Giraldo, Ice-T, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Lampanelli, Bridgett Neilsen, Patton Oswalt, Snoop Dogg, and Sommore, with DJing by Spinderella. The show is set to be taped July 22 and will air August 12. The real question is: Will anyone tune in for what's sure to be a train wreck of a show? Or will everyone decide Flav is enough of a punchline these days even without other people making fun of him?
