Oh, British People. Even their “Make Things Fun at Work” Day themes are quaint!! Take the following series of photographs, which depict a group of people wearing tea cozies on their head in order to raise money for Elizabeth Finn Care’s ‘Big Tea Cosy’ fundraising event, which encourages people to come together over a “cuppa” to raise funds and help those living in poverty in the UK.
Now, while we’re not quite sure what the correlation is between putting a teapot cover on your head and raising money for poor folks is, you kinda look at these people smiling away and think “Why ask why?” JFC, look how happy this guy is!:
Some people celebrate today, April 20, by lighting up a joint and calling it a life, as it’s also “4/20″. But today also marks the date that the closest thing history has ever had to the Devil himself — Adolf Hitler — was born, back in 1889. But do you have any idea how many beloved celebrities have to share their birth date with one of the most vile, evil figures of humankind? Even you — yes, you – will be surprised. Here are 10 Celebrities Who Share a Birthday with Hitler:
10. Joey Lawrence, 1976 Whoa! Who knew Joey LoLo was born on Hitler’s Birthday? You know who knew? Joey Lawrence, that’s who. And most definitely Mayim Bialik, whose Hebrew name means “Water Bagel” in English.
9. George Takei, 1937 George Takei is the essence of all things joyous. You know who isn’t? HILTER (The way my middle school history teacher used to spell it so as not to honor him with his correct name. Needless to say, this was in a public school.)
This weekend saw the return of America’s yearly parade of future Donald Trump wives, the Miss USA Pageant, where freshly browned blonde girls of all shapes and sizes parade years of starvation and mental motherly beatings for the chance at winning a fur coat and community college scholarship. (Ed. Note: Was that too bitter? My “B”.) Easily the best part of the competition is the “Questions” segment, where years of learning how to walk in a circle immediately go to waste and the contestants are forced to actually, you know… “think.”
Now, clearly no one could top the idiocy of Miss South Carolina’s answer in 2007 (which, for the record, has been viewed on Youtube almost 35 million f**king times), becaussuh summuh people out there in our nation like, such as, computer owners, and like the internet community, enjoy watching pretty rere’s suffer in the spotlight.
Admittedly, the following clip will delivery nowhere near the joygasms of South Carolina’s ploy to get people to donate to our public school system. But Miss California, who many pegged to take the crown, may have cost herself the victory after voicing her opinion on gay marriage. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton — likely the most recognizable judge in attendance — asked her if she supported gay marriage, only to find out Miss California’s decidedly pro Opposite Marriage agenda:
Let this be a lesson to all future Miss USA contestants: Never, ever piss off the gays. Because they made you… and they will destroy you. Shouldn’t pageant girls know better? The gays run that show! Miss California deserved to lose the crown, if only for being Rere Retardo (and, also possibly such as a homophobe.)

Julia Stiles has worn many hats over the years: Actress, Writer, Director, Saver of the Last Dances, and, believe it or not, a friend*. But today ushers in an entirely new hat for Ms. Stiles… that of an old-timey journalist. Because today, Julia was published in, of all things, The Wall Street Journal, expounding on one of her favorite subjects… The New York Mets. Julia headed over to the Mets’ new home, Citifield, to report from the stands in her article debut entitled “Making New Memories”. Here’s what I took away from the piece: 1. That being a Mets fan is still the best underdoggish way to go; and 2. That Julia knows way, waaaaaay more about baseball than I, or anyone, ever thought possible for such a willowy blonde little thing:
Once again, the Yankees are harshing my mellow. When the Mets renovated their bullpen by adding J.J. Putz and Frankie Rodriguez, the Yankees had to trump them by snagging ace starter CC Sabathia for a record high, seven-year contract that is more than the Mets’ annual payroll. With all the excitement of a new ballpark, now Mets fans are forced to share bragging rights again, as Yankee Stadium is rebuilt for nearly twice as much money, and without the baggage of a bailed-out bank for its name.
(Quoted simply for J.J. Putz.)
Anyway, whether you are a fan of baseball or of Julia’s… or just a fan of not the Yankees, the article makes for a good read. Also, I found out Julia likes the band Rush… meaning I’ve got the perfect birthday gift all lined up.
*Though, after this, that friendship is in some serious limbo.
Dare I say one of the best Blingee assignments yet? See for yourself, here are the Top 30:

The only person not threatened by controller of all things Earth-related Oprah Winfrey? Why, the King of Twitter himself, Shaquille O’Neal. Check out this feisty exchange, brought to our attention by the good people of Urlesque.com:
This is basically every conversation every single person has ever had online with one of their parents. Well done, Shaqqy. Also, you’re through in this town. And somewhere, hogtied in a shoe closet, Steadman is trying his best to slow clap.
Last week, I had the pleasure of traveling home to Miami, Florida to partake in the yearly ritual known as “Cracker Eating with Jews.” During this surprisingly relaxing visit home, I took some time to flip through some old family photo albums, to relive what I remember as being a pretty happy childhood.
And then it all came flooding back:
Me, above, 8. I don’t want to say what kind of syndrome it looks like I have, but it certainly isn’t the “up” kind.
Yes. The above image says so many things that words could simply never describe. Its very essence — the Urkel-spenders, Reeboks, 8-inch-long child crotch, bowling shirt — is what has shaped me as a comedian today. That, and years and years of child-on-child torment.
Seeing the photo, it occurred to me that I just couldn’t leave it all bottled up in some 20 year old album, but rather bring it to you, the readers, to learn from. The lesson? If you want your child to grow up funny, make sure he or she is the least popular person in school. I.e. Suspenders.
Ahead, a family portrait from my younger, Chinesier days, including an appearance from Mother Collins at her Dynasty-esque best!
OMG, sorry! It’s Eva Pigford, isn’t it?
Turns out, it is neither of those people. It is 26 year old Miranda Tozier-Robbins, arrested for trespassing after peeking into the windows of Britney Spears’ mansion. The scary thing is, she’s been released… so might we suggest Christina Aguilera put up her Rolladen shutters a little early this year.
