You know how you were pretty sure you took Family Guy's side?

Now you can be completely sure.
This is like a fake commercial from SNL. I hope next they make a three-piece pajama suit.

This video where actors describe their favorite performance of the decade is annoying but makes up for it by being hilarious. Also...what happened to Sandra Bullock's hair there? It's like the girl next door got electrocuted. Very scary.

I stopped watching after Jake Gyllenhaal said "God, I'm such a kiss ass," with this very serious, concerned look on face. Yech.

"Garlic finely cut and suspended in olive oil together with parsley leaves is often served to barbecued fish in Croatia."

Letting Poor People Vote Is Dangerous

"Poor people are capable of feats of bravery and revolution. They can storm the Bastille, overthrow the tsar or stage an Orange Revolution. But impoverished people are incapable of making sober decisions and voting responsibly in a popular election."

New York Times delightfully overwritten sentence of the day

"The seeming conflicts of interest are as abundant as the cattle grazing among the pump jacks and mesquite."

Are they microwave-safe?

I had to research CPR certification for work, and I came across a site that lets you become certified in the safety (comfort?) of your own home with a video and manikins. From the FAQ page:

The heads are dishwasher safe. The lung bags are replaceable.

"Run the flirty one."

Sometimes I wonder if they're doing this on purpose:

I really hope

that there's still only one comment posted when you read this article on overly critical parents/people in the Bay Area. The article includes several examples of people being a little too overbearing and preachy.

The VERY FIRST commenter objects to the article on the grounds that it only includes examples of women acting this way. If you're going to criticize people for being critical, then you have to be egalitarian about it.

Chimps iz so smart!

Look, they can make a movie! If by "make a movie" you mean variously try to eat, break, or make sex at a video camera someone decided to throw into their cage.

Too bad it came out slightly too late to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.
