Do you think Abed’s funny? We do.

Episode Commentary: Contemporary American Poultry

For as long as Abed (Danny Pudi) could remember, he’s always wanted to be in a mafia movie – in this case, complete with a “Goodfellas”-style voiceover, the carefree music and the elaborate scheme.
Revolving around chicken fingers.

Unfortunately, they run out at remarkable speeds, and cafeteria employee Star-Burns (Dino Stamatopoulos) always seems to have an extra batch available for those eager enough to submit a bribe.

Well, that simply won’t do – not for Jeff Winger’s (Joel McHale) study group.

So they hatch a plan. Abed, using his enormous falafel experience takes over the job (Star-Burns simply had to be taken out), and Jeff makes the decisions. رهانات المباريات

Until Abed strikes a deal with Senor Chang (Ken Jeong) for a group-bump on the next Spanish exam; and Jeff’s now been downgraded.

Goofily following the rise and fall of Ray Liotta’s most famed portrayal, Henry Hill, the group sans-Jeff withhold a series of fingers and then re-deliver them to intended recipients in exchange for various favors.

Britta (Gillian Jacobs) acquires a hair-dresser, Annie (Alison Brie) gets a new backpack, Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) lands the apple of her eye (a decidedly delicious “sexy dreadlock” man), Troy (Donald Glover) gets a monkey (named “Annie’s Boobs”) and Pierce (Chevy Chase) gains an entourage.

Jeff, visibly upset at losing his throne, is subsequently removed from the family.

I spent a good decade dabbling in creating metaphysically-inclined narrative fiction and a mercifully short stream of lackluster poetry. A seasoned connoisseur of college majors, I discovered journalism only recently through a mock review for my mock editor, though my respect for the field is hardly laughable. I eventually plan to teach philosophy at a university and write in my free time while traveling the world, scaling mountains and finding other, more creative ways to stimulate adrenaline. Travel journalism, incidentally, would be a dream profession. Potential employers? Feel free to ruthlessly steal me away from the site. I’ll put that overexposed Miss Brown to shame.
