Penguins or some junk...

The Onion AV Club has a feature up about gimmicky tv cameos intended to boost ratings, which does right by calling How I Met Your Mother the best three-camera sitcom on television, as well as mentioning the Van Damme cameo on Friends (which you really should watch, and then you never have to see another episode of Friends again).

But the gimmicky tv cameo I like the most has to be Jay Sherman's appearance on The Simpsons, a move so abhorrent in principle to Matt Groening that he wouldn't put his name on the episode or record commentary for the DVD. Whev, though, because that episode is funny, and so was The Critic itself:

Remember, if anyone gives you extra sass, you just got to whip out that penguin "whine, whinewhine whine" to set them straight.
