If you're not familiar, Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless are two fools who argue about stuff on ESPN. Basically they are the Bill O'Reilly and Nancy Grace of sports. They're taking their "we disagree with each other on everything" shtick to the next level recently – I'm talking Mean Gene interviewing Jake the Snake level.
Exhibit A is below. It's them arguing whether Tim Tebow is one of the top 100 players in the NFL. Start watching from 2:15in. While Smith talks, Bayless licks his chops and arches his eyebrows, and does some sorta shoulder shimmy as if he's about to start doing The Forbidden Dance. When Bayless talks, Smith refuses to look at him, turns to the side, sips a cup of coffee, and eventually pulls out a newspaper and starts reading it on air. Get it!???!!!??? They don't respect each other's opinions! Good times.
Y'know, Heath Ledger was pretty good as The Joker. But I've never seen anything creepier in my life than Skip Bayless licking his lips.
