Jane Lynch Opens Roseanne Barr Roast With “F*%k Chick-Fil-A”

Jane Lynch

Jane Lynch knows how to get a party started. The Glee actress kicked off the Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne by screaming “F*ck Chik-Fil-A” amid cheers from a very happy crowd. Chick-Fil-A is now best known for its anti-gay stance as opposed to it extra crispy sandwiches.

Lynch was in rare form as she went after the assembled roasters. She had a few quick stabs at Carrie Fischer, Katy Sagal and Ellen Barkin. This is before she even introduced Comedy Central’s star of the evening Roseanne Barr.

When looking at all the women assembled for the Roast, Lynch said,

“This show is serving up more old spoiled hens than a Chick-Fil-A. Oh, that reminds me… F*ck Chick-Fil-A. ”

Lynch was obviously responding to the overwhelming support the chicken restaurant received in its first annual Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. Lynch, who is herself a lesbian, married her long time partner Dr. Laura Embry in 2010. She wrote a book about it called Happy Accidents.

Lynch is Roast Master of the evening, a first in her career. There were several others assembled at the Roast that decided to address current controversies. Jefferey Ross, who has a show coming to Comedy Central in which he is going to do nothing but roast people, arrived to the Roseanne Roast dressed as former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. He said if anyone felt offended by his costume “They can do what Joe Paterno did – look the other way.”

The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne Barr ais August 10th at 10pm.

    roseanne barr had a "traumatic brain-injury" when she was 16, dylan terreri had a "traumatic brain-injury" at 16 – why has dylan's insolent creativity gone ignored while roseanne's potty-mouthed insults are celebrated?

    what does a man – who was "traumatically brain-injured" in 1990 – have to do in order to follow in the gay-hating, female-bashing footsteps of the mighty "slim shady," I ask myself. I was convicted of a felony a decade ago, after I sent a ton of threatening emails to strangers as a marketing tool for my website. I've written a plethora of anti-gay essays and female-compromising petitions that I've posted on many different websites to link to my own website, I've decorated my car with graphics and slogans to direct people to my website, I've gone to websites for parody and I've posted over a hundred song parodies written by me that were taken directly from the 700 that are on my own website.

    i was childhood friends with someone named seth who is in the band "les savy fav" now, I just went to a bakery today and saw an advertisement for a local man who is in a band and currently performing in nashville, I see all of this and I ask myself "what about me". I've even written a parody of a song called "what about me" that was done by a band called "moving pictures" in 1989. so, what about me? what do I have to do to get my 13 year-old website noticed by singers and actors and producers, how can I let people know of the talent that has been brewing inside of me for years? I can sing, I can act, I can write – all of my homosexuality-compromising words of demeaning wit are on parade in video skits at my website of (homo)sexual assault that is http://www.anti-gay.com. all of my vagina-compromising satire is on parade at my websites of mockery that are http://www.femalebashing.com and http://www.strongwomen.info and http://www.legalizerape.org. the product of both my childhood and my "traumatic brain-injury" is live for all the world to see at my website of morissette-inspired parody that has been http://www.jaggedlittledyl.com since 1999.

    i mock Strongwoman's menstrual cycle because it derails the entire concept of feminism, simply with the fact that mommy lays an egg once a month. I mock Strongwoman's breasts because they derail the entire concept of feminism, simply though the role of the milk that mommy produces for the life that started as the aforementioned egg. I mock Strongwoman's dependence on the type of "special olympics" that is otherwise known as gender-based sports teams. I mock the lackluster "g.i. jane" and her reliance on gender-based military requirements. I mock gender-based fitness centers and gender-based poker nights, and did you know that the "coney island hot dog eating competition" had to go and add a "womens' division" in order for the little females to triumph?

    "we should've known you question your manhood when we saw you playing with it like you just bought it at some kind of curiosity shop". "how can you expect to be man enough to satisfy my hunger for a man…or anyone else's hunger, for that matter…if YOU hunger". these are two quotes from one of the anti-gay screenplays I have written, and all of my screenplays are kept on my site. the idea started as jaggedlittledyl.com in early 1999, out of an obsession with "jagged little pill," and I later registered anti-gay.com after realizing all of the anti-gay material on it. it's grown to over 25 urls, but it's all http://www.jaggedlittledyl.com.

    regarding today's overcompensating society where masculivoids like gays and females march in parades to fabricate a sense of masculine identity (ala, "rosie the riveter" stating "we can do it") in hopes of believing themselves when they say "i'm more man than you'll ever be," I realize the thoughts expressed on my website would be deemed as hateful or intolerant. now, aside from a bumper sticker I've created which reads, "tolerate my intolerance, you bigot," there is nothing to say to anyone who is thin-skinned enough to hold a pity-party and then call anyone "hateful" or "intolerant". people like that will always be offended at anything questioning their identity (their gender-disorientation), and there is no getting through to someone bull-headed enough to use pride as a defense-mechanism ("we here, we're queer, get used to it"). so I mock gays and feminists and other masculine slights on my vulgar website, which could've been "slim shady: part two".

    i really feel that my talents should be recognized. as I've said, I can sing and I can act and I can write. I am a talented singer with a vocal range not as vast as mariah carey's, but I can sing along with her on a few of her songs without dropping an octave. I have no training, so the "orgasm" scales/sounds that she makes in the song called "emotions" are not done as meticulously when I do them in my falsetto…but I can emulate them.

    i am a talented actor, having been the "2nd freshman thespian" in my high school's well-established "thespian society". I've had "ferris bueller's day off" memorized since 1987…and "dirty dancing" memorized since 1988. I amazed my friends as I'd recite every line, I amazed them even more than when I'd blow spit-bubbles off of my tongue. I was the MC in cabaret, as well, at age 15…i was in other plays, but cabaret was the one I got the most glory from.

    stephen king was my favorite author as a boy, and it certainly shows if you'd get a look at some of the "nastygrams" I've sent to restaurants and waitresses who have treated me with little respect. I've been investigated by the fbi, my letters were so twisted and so brilliantly expressive that people were psyched into believing they were being threatened by the mention of blood and islamic rape-rooms. though I only brought up the waitresses' "blood-red vaginas" to imply that women lay eggs. a woman bleeds out an egg from her womb. a woman is man-like with a womb, wombman. womman. woman.

    wrapping up, I will state again that I am a star waiting to be born. I can sing, I can act, I can write. I have more talent than 90 percent of famous people. I have more talent that 100% of famous niggers, including the "white house-negro"…and beyonce…and jay-z.

    i like to compare myself to slim shady, the anti-gay and anti-female side of eminem, just not with the same kind of tolerance for black people. gosh, if negros want reparations for a free ride from africa to america, why don't they move back to africa and pretend that slavery never happened?

    dylan terreri, i.
