After abruptly canceling her scheduled appearance last week, Paula Deen finally sat down Wednesday for an interview with the “Today” show, where she cried, tried to make people feel sorry for her, cried some more, gave one sob story after another, cried a little more, and then she said this:

“If there’s anyone out there that has never said something that they wished they could take back. If you’re out there, please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me. Please. I want to meet you. I is what I is and I’m not changing.

“I is … what I is?”
