Oh look, it's Friday, and that means it time to take another lucky dip into The Soup's mail pouch and see which missives we've been missing. As always, if we haven't answered your question here, it was only due to the limits of time and space and probably not out of an unresolved act of vengeance. Unless your name is Mindy Cohn. Yes, we're still holding a grudge. Some things can never be forgiven.

vacrn127 asks: Hey, I am a huge fan of the show, and I live across the street from E! studios. Wondering if you give any tours or allow people to watch taping.

You are more than welcome to continue watching tapings in the same manner that you always have, via a high-powered telescope which you keep on your balcony. If we could ask one thing of you though, please, just tighten up the belt on that bathrobe a bit.

conlan27 asks: Have you considered changing the name of "Chat Stew" segment to "Crock of Chat"?

Not yet. But let's consider it now. Hmmm. OK, and we're done here.

buggie98 asks: I think the soup is the best show on the planet but what I want to know is if you have any bloopers and if so please send them to me

Unfortunately, buggie98, any bloopers that Joel McHale makes during an episode of The Soup are far too hate-filled and profanity-laden to distribute to the world at large. Yet another reason why we don't encourage an outside audience.
Meredith Viera, Hoagie sandwich

alychecketts asks: I have a picture of David Beckham picking his shorts at a MLS game last Saturday, May 3rd.

It's always to good to hear about your latest acquisitions, alychecketts. We still speak fondly of the time you wrote to tell us that you'd gotten your hands on a photograph of Meredith Viera eating a hoagie. Keep snappin'!

isa_ale91 asks: Hola quiero que Joel me salude por favor soy de Bolivia. Besos para el bye atte Isabel Ramirez, 17. Hi Joel send me some kisses please. I'm learning English. You are gorgeous I love when you speak Spanish just that bye everyone

Thank you isa_ale91. We definitely enjoyed the latter portion of your letter, but we need to ask what happened during the first half? Those have got to be some of the worst typos we've ever seen. Very difficult to understand what you were trying to get across there. Something about soy? Are you asking if Joel is lactose-intolerant?

klcortright asks: why do you always make fun of kim kardashian?i love her! instead make more fun of jamie lynn spears

Well, klcortright, the difference is that when Jamie Lynn Spears found herself in an embarrassing situation, she tactfully retreated from the public spotlight. Oh, and as for the Kardashians, we're sure that their dead-behind-the-eyes hearts are in the right place here but, well, judge for yourself. We can't speak for the people of Burma, but we imagine that they might give this one a "Yeah...uh, we're going to say no thanks on this."

mgarcia asks: Where can i find the clip of the video you guys showed of the Spanish Soap opera where this man was messing up his room while this strange woman stared?

That clip can be found in the Hot Soup video gallery. Just click on "More Videos" at the top of the column to the right and you'll find that clip and many others. (Hey, that was a legitimate answer to that person's legitimate question! What's going on around here?)

And now, please join us for something very special: A journey through the Hit Reply music and complaint departments.

Jess826 asks: Holy hell..what was alkaline trio doing on the hills...blasphemous

We know! If We've said it once, We've said it a million times, music has no place on MTV.

Steven Tyler

kimitzoe asks: Okay, my reality show idea is a game show competition with gay men who dress as Drag Queens and perform a drag show each week for Judge and show Host, Steven Tyler from Aerosmith...and it can be called...DUDE Looks Like a LADY. What do you think?

I don't know, I mean, aside from the absence of Steven Tyler, isn't this pretty much Sex and the City?

leighanner asks: I really dont appreciate the comment you made about Def Leppards Rick Allen that was just distasteful and disrespectful! I think you should publicly apologize! Your job seems to be easy to just sit around and talk ill of people. I dont watch your show and never have because of your lack of respect for people.

But, leighanner, if you've never watched the show, then how did you even...Hold on, someone else coming through here...

skiblish asks: WHAT THE HELL WHERE YOU THINKING MAKINGING FUN OF THE DUMMER OF LEF LEPPARD? THIS GUY CAN DRUM HIS ASS OFF BETTER THAN ONE GUY CAN DO WITH ONE HAND. PICK ON SOMEONE WITH BASICIALLY THE SAME TALENT LEVEL AS YOU . YOU ARE A FUNNY GUY STICK TO THE FUNNY SCHLICK DO'NT BE A D**K .

Now see, leighanner, we could have very easily targeted this guy for his hilarious spelling error, but we refrained, out of respect. Though, we stand by our opinion that the joke about Def Leppard's drummer on last week's Soup was relatively harmless—yes, I could have easily written relatively armless there, but I refrained, out of respect—if anyone did take offense to our brief joke then we apologize. We certainly didn't intend any...Oh great, who's this?
Morrissey

chriscollazo0291 asks: how dare you!!!!!!!! Why do you have to talk about Morrissey? What did he do to you. Nothing at alllllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You people think it is cool to talk about him. I saw the preview for Firdays show and it is unbeleiveable on what you said. just know on what you are dealing with because you will have a huge gang of people on you. All we want is for you to leave him alone and dont ever talk about Morrissey again!

We can't even talk about him? OK...well...then, let's just say that a joke from last week's show about a certain singer who is well known for his lovelorn lyrical themes was totally in keeping with this unnamed troubadour's oeuvre, and were this anonymous bard to actually see said quip, we feel confident that he would recognize its satiric value and resist that gang-like admonishment which you suggest.

There. Now, if anyone else has a complaint for The Soup Blog feel free to send it our way via that little "Email The Soup" button located in the column on the right-side of your screen. Unless you are in the Southen Hemisphere, then it's on the reverse.

Viva Hate!
