Sure, the Oscars ceremony is a long affair, but even with all that time to kill there are only so many jokes you can make about Tommy Lee Jones. Some are bound to wind up on the cutting room floor.
Comedian Jesse Joyce is no stranger to cranking out hundreds of one-liners for a show and having many of them go unused. Having written for Comedy Central's roasts for years now, he's made the tweeting of his rejected jokes right after broadcast a tradition. So when he was asked to write for this year's Oscars, he decided to continue it.
Since the ceremony is broadcast to nearly a billion people, it's naturally going to be a little less risky than a roast. Which makes seeing these unused gags all the more fun. Check out Joyce's rejected Oscars jokes below and let us know which you would have liked to her Seth MacFarlane say on national television.
