KNOX – Host the Oscars? No way, I don’t want to be mobbed on social media

THE ACADEMY AWARDS are on tonight, and I am afraid. Afraid that in the absence of all other alternatives, I will be grabbed off the street and press-ganged into hosting the show, just like when they used to scoop guys out of bars and force them to fight forest fires. In both scenarios, the chances of getting burned are high.

No one wants to host the Oscars this year, mostly because they fear triggering the bloodthirsty mob on social media, the one you get when crossbreeding the Thought Police from 1984 with the orc army from Lord of the Rings.
