High-def? That's a dealbreaker!

Thursday night's moment of awesome, courtesy of "30 Rock"

We, the sarcastic, astigmatic women of New York City,  love "30 Rock" like Liz Lemon loves ham. But last night, we took our worship to the next level, as growly, exasperated Lemon morphed into crazy performer Liz for her "Dealbreakers" talk show pilot.

Ditching her glasses and gaining a haircut that would inspire pity from Kate Gosselin, Lemon lurched her way through an Ellen-like opening, but the true horror came when she stepped in front of the cruelly revealing high-definition camera. What unfolded next takes an already funny idea and turns into the most surreally hilarious gag in ages.
