Is there a character on Glee who better embodies the phrase "love to hate" than Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch)? In any given episode, it can be tough to keep track of all her antics. To that end, we’ve compiled our top five most jaw-dropping Sue moments from “Rumours.” Sure, they may be pure evil, but they're pretty fun to watch, too! Admit it.
5. Jacob’s (Josh Sussman) hands get minty fresh
We get the lesson Sue is trying to impart by having Jacob try to put the toothpaste back in the tube. But does she have to make him squeeze it into his bare hand? Talk about a waste of toothpaste — somewhere, poor Dr. Carl (John Stamos) just shed a single tear.
4. Freshen up your placenta?
Sure, it’s incredibly disgusting that Sue serves a drink containing protein powder and placenta. Then again, if you’re dumb enough to drink whatever Sue hands you, we don’t really feel sorry for you.
3. Crazy costumes
We would typically criticize Sue for dressing up in costume for no reason — replete with face paint! However, we have to admit she actually looks a fair amount like David Bowie and Ann Coulter. Maybe all skinny blonde people look alike? (Speaking of which, if we were one of the few blonde celebrities whom Sue didn’t dress up as, we’d be firing our agents. That means you, Paris Hilton... )
2. Sue sends Brittany (Heather Morris) to do her dirty work
Among the episode’s highlights? Brittany’s supposedly “hard-hitting” questions for Schue (Matthew Morrison) about whether he wears lace panties. Naturally, it’s all part of a ploy engineered by Sue to get him to admit he’s following April (Kristin Chenoweth) to Broadway. Then again, if a musical by the South Park guys can get the most Tony nominations this year, why can’t crazy April have a shot?
1. Sue commandeers the news. (Rupert Murdoch would be proud.)
We admire Sue’s ability to cause trouble with all her questionable rumors about Schue, Santana (Naya Rivera), and Sam (Chord Overstreet). That said, there’s got to be a better way to spread high school gossip than in the freakin’ student newspaper! The rest of us are in 2011, Sue — let us know when you get here.
