Best line from a tv critic this week

It comes from Doug Elfman's review of this Sunday's disaster "epic", "Category 7: The End of the World", which appears in today's Sun-Times as "TV's latest disaster a bad joke". As Elfman savages the four-hour waste of screen time and electricity, he gives this "keeper" review line:

"'Gay Paree just got stomped,' an emergency official tells his employees with American swagger that could not possibly fit in any codpiece on the planet."

Codpiece notwithstanding, I watched a small portion of the thing from this is a continuation, and can't, for the life of me, comprehend why anybody would think a sequel was a good idea. It seems Elfman has the same thought.
