So have you watched NBC's live version of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood yet? OH DEAR GOD, IT WAS GLORIOUSLY TERRIBLE. In Carrie's defense, anyone pitted against the memory of Julie Andrews would have a tough go at it... lucky for her she had GOD in her corner. From her Twitter, directly following her performance:
Glory to God tonight...I couldn't be more proud. What a tough thing to pull off and we did it! I am so blessed!!!

However, when the not-so-blessed reviews began pouring in (and pouring in) she uttered a tweet that I will now have permanently embossed on a T-shirt.
Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight... 1 Peter 2:1-25

Poor Carrie... and more importantly, POOR JESUS. (And poor Von Trapps! They escaped the Nazis for this?!?)
