I just learned that the ever awesome Allison Janney appeared on the new (!) Arsenio show the other day, and did a lip-sync performance of The Jackal.
OMG what is this awesomeness? And why did it take so long for me to see it?

And C.J. was the kickassest of them all.
And because I'm always a fan of crediting the original artists, here's the original video for The Jackal [feat. Dana Bryant], by Ronny Jordan:
