Community making fun of Glee just makes me love both shows more.

Looks like it's time for the annual mash-up episode. It's "Mash Off." Huh. No hyphen, show?

  • Puckfasa? Really?
  • Ah, he is 18 after all.
  • Uhhh, Puck, Woody Allen's relationship probably isn't one you should be modeling yours after...
  • "I know I'm supposed to be learning about grammars and stuff..." ...
  • In all fairness, I can't really complain about the Idina Menzel ass shots. She's kind of spectacular in every way. Mmmm.
  • The Blaine and Mike groin-grabbing hip-rotating shots, either. Hee.
  • Cory Monteith's Hardcore Rocker face is kind of terrifying.
  • Oh god the mic stand choreography.
  • Schuester, you probably shouldn't be encouraging this little number. Not that inappropriateness has ever stopped you before. *cough*TOXIC*cough*
  • Okay, Puck, when even Finn has caught on, you need to re-evaluate your ability to hide things.
  • BERT DERPFACE.
  • This commercial is hilarious and infuriating all at once.
  • PAID FOR BY ANGRY WHITE PEOPLE TO ELECT SUE SYLVESTER
  • Kurt, what the hell are you wearing why do you look like Leia in Return of the Jedi.
  • "And no one is even on MySpace, not even Rachel!"
  • Really, Kurt, obesity? Trying to change the cafeteria food? Didn't we go through this last season with Mercedes and the tots incident? And the time you two were Cheerios and she stopped eating and you encouraged it until she sang "Beautiful" in front of the whole school and you acknowledged, ALSO in front of the whole school, that you had been wrong? You know? Back when that happened? Goddammit.
  • "Winning is really about poo-flinging." Truer words.
  • World War Glee is the most fabulous war. Jazz hand battalions. Glitter trenches. War is hell. Sparkly, sparkly hell.
  • Looks like the TroubleTones have about seven people; Nude Erections has... nine, I think? Unless I'm forgetting someone. Neither group has enough to perform at sectionals, though the appearance of Cheerios on the 'Tones indicates that they'll likely be able to pull from that group for extra members.
  • Damn, they've really upped Santana's bitch factor lately. She's gone from being sharp-tongued to being a total ass and kind of unlikeable.
  • "Is this what having a stroke feels like, because I like it." Hah.
  • Okay, unlike some of the previous mash-ups the show has done, I do like this song. Idina Menzel makes everything better.
  • Sugar's awkward dancing is hilarious and oddly endearing. It's becoming pretty clear that she just wants to be accepted, and it ain't happening.
  • A pumpkin? Why did the cafeteria have a tiny pumpkin?
  • Puck seriously this is such a bad idea. Buttheyaresopretty. But SUCH A BAD IDEA.
  • "Spice Girls." YES. DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT.
  • Kurt are you wearing a riding helmet what the hell.
  • You know, the more we hear about Santana, the more obvious it becomes that the girl probably has some MASSIVE self-esteem issues; enough to make Rachel look confident.
  • Santana, I thought you were from Lima Heights-Adjacent. Come on, writers, you've been so good with continuity this season.
  • Dodgeball? Really?
  • Aww. I like Shelby trying to be friends with Rachel. Both actresses are playing it very well. Rachel's far more likeable when she's vulnerable than when she's being psychotic.
  • Awwwwww, Rachel and Kurt. Rachel, he's got a point, you really threw him under the bus.
  • "What's the rules?" "Don't. Die."
  • Hee, appropriate songs are appropriate.
  • Oh god, the slow-mo face shots. Poor Kurt! D:
  • Fuck offfff, Santana. Die in all the fires.
  • "She sounds like what banana cream pie sounds like when it sings." Heee.
  • Santana, you are so bad at apologizing. Fires. In them. You know the drill.
  • Aaaaaand Finn hits a bulls-eye.
  • I am torn; Santana's been one of the most awful people on this show, but outing someone against their will is not cool, period. Especially not in an environment that's well-known to be hostile. On the other hand, the school environment HASN'T been openly hostile to the openly gay characters this season, in part due to Santana's actions last season. Hell, Kurt's put up posters with his face over a rainbow, and doesn't appear to have received so much as one insult for it. On the other other hand, it's NOT his place to out her, period, end of story. That's HER decision to make and implement.
  • Goddammit, Puck, why must you be so cute with Beth it makes my ovaries melty.
  • Oh god that blazer.
  • OH GOD THE FAKE MUSTACHES AND POOFY HAIR I CAN'T STOP GIGGLING.
  • The outfits! The hair! Hee.
  • Cute number. Not as good as some, which, given that they had something like a day to put it together, is understandable. Until you remember that on this show they're able to throw together a thoroughly rehearsed, elaborately choreographed number in a matter of hours. Time has no meaning in the Glee universe.
  • Try not to sound too excited, Figgins.
  • Hahah, half the attendees are the Glee club.
  • Pass gas into jars to be sold in the cafeteria... what?
  • And Brit-Brit is giving a presentation on... Tornadoes.
  • "Also on Tuesdays, I pledge to go topless."
  • KURT IS WEARING A UNICORN HAT.
  • Is... is dodgeball a real problem at McKinley? I mean, we've never seen anything about it before this episode. Oh, show.
  • Come to think of it, aside from Mercedes, Lauren, and a few nameless, shabbily-dressed fatties in the tots and prom queen episodes last season, there don't seem to be any overweight people at their school at all. The extras are always thin.
  • Well done, Rachel.
  • "Scowling gives you forehead lines and I am way too young for botox." Hee.
  • "I realized that part of that dream is going there with you." Awwwwwwwwwwwww.
  • Rick the Stick is going to win, isn't he.
  • Dear god. Intense. I feel bad for Quinn, but Shelby is in the right here. There's virtually no way Quinn could handle raising Beth, nor is there any way CPS would just hand the baby over to her in the event that they took her from Shelby.
  • Jesus christ, outing a teenage girl on TV like that is just... Goddamn. People get killed for this sort of shit.
  • Oh, Santana. She's always so brash and bitchy, seeing her just crumple into tears like that... Much as I hate her a lot of the time, I want to give her a hug.
  • They are, of course, absolutely killing this mash-up. And Santana's worried expressions are heartbreaking.
  • It does seem like much of the school is indifferent; it might help that both Brittany and Santana are well-known for sleeping with lots of guys (which means they might just get the "slutty/bisexual" label slapped on them, rather than the "dyke" label, which, while certainly not treated kindly, is at least the tiniest bit better tolerated), and both present as very femme. And I don't think Finn would have said it out loud if he genuinely thought it would cause a problem at school (certainly no one seemed to take any notice of it in the hallway, and at the very least all the glee club kids knew--Brit-Brit blurted out that she and Santana were sleeping together ages ago, and she doesn't seem to have much of a filter, so it wouldn't be surprising if she'd told other people as well). But, again, shitty, shitty move on his part, and christ, the guy who put it in a tv commercial should be shot and left to die in the woods.
  • Santana does not do well with anger; she lashes out at everyone around her (except Brittany). I see this ending badly.
