Video: Mary Katharine Ham on “nekkid” pictures

posted at 9:30 pm on October 10, 2007 by Allahpundit

Do I have that right? Did she say “nekkid” or are my prejudices against southerners playing tricks on my ear?

Lots of drugs and nudity on the menu tonight. If you’re enough of a Natalie Portman fan that you’re willing to endure a Wes Anderson film to see her, ahem, “nekkid,” your feature’s screening now at iTunes. Let me know what I missed.

I heard that too. A shame O’Reilly is so tragically unhip, he might get what she’s talking about some time.

I hope some candidates were paying attention. She can do a lot better than that Meathead schtick.

my prejudices against southerners

The correct word is bigotry.

Stephen M on October 10, 2007 at 9:33 PM

The Hammer is hot.
This story is not.

thejackal on October 10, 2007 at 9:36 PM

Yes, both said “nekkid’
I’m skeerded now.

JammieWearingFool on October 10, 2007 at 9:32 PM

I think he likes it that way.

infidel4life on October 10, 2007 at 9:42 PM

What the hell… when did H&C become a talent show? Country stars?

Editor on October 10, 2007 at 9:47 PM

MKH is right conservatives do need more comedians on there side. Well, I think AP is funny (sometimes).

terryannonline on October 10, 2007 at 9:47 PM

F-You allahpunkit. There are more southern boys fighting in this war than any other region of the country. You “prejudiced” against them too? What a tool you are.

Sugar Land on October 10, 2007 at 10:02 PM

MKH saying nekkid makes me feel funny. O’Reilly saying nekkid makes me feel a little ill.

Tennman on October 10, 2007 at 10:04 PM

Nude is art.
Naked means you don’t have any clothes on.
Nekkid means you’re up to something.

Sugar Land. Lighten up, Francis.

harrison on October 10, 2007 at 10:06 PM

Hey Grampa O’Reilly, it’s called a nude scene in a short film available on ITunes. It’s not like Portman got some nude stills and posted them on her personal website.

SouthernDem on October 10, 2007 at 10:07 PM

By the way, a New Yawkuh making fun of accents? Really?

SouthernDem on October 10, 2007 at 10:08 PM

Dammit AP, you can’t put the words “video”, “Mary Katherine Ham”, and “nekkid” in the same sentence and expect us to see any of the words in between!

Harpazo on October 10, 2007 at 10:08 PM

I liked Portman in The Professional. Of course she was about 12 then.

jaime on October 10, 2007 at 10:08 PM

on there their side

terryannonline

Just trying to help, terryann, just trying to help…

Sugar Land on October 10, 2007 at 10:02 PM

Whoa, easy bro. I think AP is keenly aware of the invaluable contributions to our military by the men of the south. This was just humor.

Jaibones on October 10, 2007 at 10:09 PM

O’Reilly said “nekkid”? I didn’t hear it that way, but it’s a much better story.

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on October 10, 2007 at 10:10 PM

I am trying to think of a more absurd scenario than “Jaibones: Voice of Reason”, but I can’t.

Jaibones on October 10, 2007 at 10:11 PM

1. Demi Moore nude = granny pron.

2. “Borning enough to be considered art”

3. What’s on MKH’s phone?

MirCat on October 10, 2007 at 10:15 PM

Sugar Land on October 10, 2007 at 10:02 PM

Dude. I could be wrong but I think AP was making reference to the good-natured back-and-forth between Thompson and Giuliani supporters the last couple weeks.

jaime on October 10, 2007 at 10:15 PM

MKH smiling is way better than nekkid Demi or Natalie.
/I’ll be in my…oh nevermind……

bbz123 on October 10, 2007 at 10:23 PM

Sugar Land on October 10, 2007 at 10:02 PM

You are way off. Google tells me that Lewis Grizzard, a writer one cannot accuse of failing to understand the South, was the one who said, as harrison correctly points out above, “Naked means not having any clothes on. “Nekked” is when you don’t have any clothes on and you’re up to no damn good.”

Read HotAir, and get Allah’s measure, for a while, before you go jumping to conclusions.

Splunge on October 10, 2007 at 10:30 PM

You can always rely on MKH for the “nekkid” truth…….. gah, that was terrible. :D

Yakko77 on October 10, 2007 at 10:34 PM

“It’s boring enough to be considered art instead of smut”.

So if nekkid art is boring,does that mean nekkid smut is not?

soundingboard on October 10, 2007 at 10:34 PM

Yakko77 on October 10, 2007 at 10:34 PM

Glad somebody (other than me) said it, though.

steveegg on October 10, 2007 at 10:51 PM

yeah, it’s nekkid :)

funny how growing up when I was road trippin I always tried to get rid of my accent so that I wouldn’t be seen as ‘dumb’ and get taken advantage of when I was lost. Now I love the southern accent. It sounds like home.

ThackerAgency on October 10, 2007 at 10:55 PM

Submit AP. You need to come down south.

Imagine, if you will, a sweet little gal like MK.

A nekkid moonlight skinnydip in the creek.

Just about as close to heaven as an atheist can ever get.

You need to get out of the city for a while son, and let us southerners show you what life is really about.

After that, we may even turn you into a god fearing boy.

conservnut on October 10, 2007 at 11:12 PM

F-You allahpunkit. [Etc., etc.]

Sugar Land on October 10, 2007 at 10:02 PM

I’m sure if someone spoke to me this way in my capacity as host, I would ban him without any respect. Besides, I’ve come to view a mild dislike of all things Southern as part of AllahPundit’s parochial, Rust Belt charm.

Kralizec on October 10, 2007 at 11:15 PM

“nekkid”

Lol, just the word makes me giggle.

peski on October 10, 2007 at 11:18 PM

I reckon MKH sounded jus about rite to me… she ain’t hard on the eies neither…

d1carter on October 10, 2007 at 11:27 PM

Mary Katharine was just using a cadence and tone that every Southerner has heard his or her mama mother and

daddy

father use every time he or she’s done something dumb.

“Whenya.. gon’.. learn.. not tapuchyer.. nekkid.. pitchers.. on thuh interneht… boah?”

(Before anybody jumps on me, I’m a South Carolinian and I loved it when she broke into that rhythm – it’s music to my ears)

angryoldfatman on October 10, 2007 at 11:28 PM

Stupid format thingie. It was supposed to say daddy.

angryoldfatman on October 10, 2007 at 11:29 PM

Imagine, if you will, a sweet little gal like MK. A nekkid moonlight skinnydip in the creek. Just about as close to heaven as an atheist can ever get.

conservnut on October 10, 2007 at 11:12 PM

The tangible result of “a nekkid moonlight skinnydip” with “a sweet little gal” may be a child, the next life in this world, rather than a continuation of this life in the next world. I’ll leave it to Christians and “atheists,” respectively, to say which is more divine.

Kralizec on October 10, 2007 at 11:34 PM

Submit AP. You need to come down south.

You need to get out of the city for a while son, and let us southerners show you what life is really about.

No, he don’t, either. He’s fine right where he’s at in the big city. You know he talks funny, is whiter than new sheets, and probably even smells like city

ew. heh.

El Cazador on October 10, 2007 at 11:43 PM

I watched with the sound off. MKH is so hot.

spec_ops_mateo on October 10, 2007 at 11:44 PM

MKH saying nekkid makes me feel funny.

Tennman on October 10, 2007 at 10:04 PM

That remark brings back memories. Just as, in Dogma, Loki and Bartelby want to hear the voice of God, I want to hear Allah say, “I feel funny in the pants,” just one more time. Redsugar Muse, pray for us.

Kralizec on October 10, 2007 at 11:51 PM

Can someone photoshop little, pointy elfin ears coming out of MKH’s hair on the article’s screenshot? Because she looks like she’s charmingly on the way to Vixen Pixie.

profitsbeard on October 11, 2007 at 12:53 AM

I’m siding with Sugar Land on this one. AP’s comment was an egregious example of how lots of you view us down here in the South. It’s ignorant. It’s misleading. It’s uninformed. It’s downright stupid!

Oh, it was a joke? That’s what the liberals always say when you call their bluff. “Just kidding!” Riiight.

So let me just say this about that… I’ll bet your state got chalked up in Al Gore’s column. But us local yokels know a snake oil salesman when we see one. You can thank us idiots that he’ll be in Stockholm on Friday instead of in the Oval Office.

You’re welcome, Allahpundit.

grits on October 11, 2007 at 1:39 AM

And they say Californians don’t have a sense of humor.

baldilocks on October 11, 2007 at 3:06 AM

Actually the correct wording would have been butt nekkid.

coldshot on October 11, 2007 at 4:17 AM

Allah – You’ve missed nothing by skipping Hotel Chevalier. If Natalie shaved her head to bring us the suck that wasV for Vendetta, consider this “nude” hype an escalation of hostilities against the audience.

saint kansas on October 11, 2007 at 5:50 AM

Such a discussion, and nary a mention from MKH of Disney sweetheart/”High School Musical” star Vanessa (“Tin Tin”) Hudgens, who took her own nekkid pictures. Oh, I forgot, that was so 5 weeks ago…

Actually the correct wording would have been butt nekkid.

coldshot on October 11, 2007 at 4:17 AM

butt nekkid, what light through yonder window cracks. It is the moon…”

When they held the Detroit movie critics screening of “Darjeeling Limited,” they showed us the short, and in my critique, I said what needs to be known about the short: Natalie Portman’s naked butt is saggy and has cellulite (not sure if this is reflected in the stills on her site). Yes, no body double was used. MKH is right that it is boring. It’s also pointless. Both of these adjectives apply to Darjeeling, too. Here’s my review of the “film.” But MKH is wrong about one thing, Portman appears very briefly in the boring Darjeeling in one brief scene and her character is constantly referred to in that movie. Not that you care . . . or should. Both the short and the movie stink. Her showing her butt is the only “noteworthy” thing about them, which they clearly did to make people go see these bores.

Debbie Schlussel on October 11, 2007 at 8:04 AM

Cute as a June bug, that MKH is.

shooter on October 11, 2007 at 10:01 AM

MKH is right conservatives do need more comedians on there side. Well, I think AP is funny (sometimes).

terryannonline on October 10, 2007 at 9:47 PM

We conservative comedians need more conservatives in the audience. I did one show a few weeks ago where the crowd was in shocked silence when I mentioned I support our troops.
.
After the show, I heard one guy tell his wife, “I didn’t come to a comedy show to hear some rightwing gun nut tell me to support President Bush.”
