"Yes, that's right Neil Patrick Harris, the Television Academy has, once again, seen fit to nominate us both in their 'Oustanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series' category. Once again we will be joined in a battle of thespianism. Will it be like last year, when you wowed the crowd with your singing and dancing, entertained them and made them laugh, showed them that, clearly, you possess more talent in your tiny little pinky than the whole body of that stupid Jon Cryer guy, only to be brutally disappointed when our category was announced? We'll see, Neil Patrick Harris, we'll see. My lack of talent has taken me this far and I'm betting it won't let me down again this year. Thankfully, the other gentlemen in this category are also supremely gifted. I'm a shoo-in!"
