ICYMI: BWE Lances Perez Hilton


If you guys missed last week’s episode of Best Week Ever, and shame on you if you did, you might not have gotten to enjoy this wonderful love-letter to our good friend Perez Hilton. Luckily, we decided to post it here for posterity.

ICYMI: Homer Goes to Hollywood


Perhaps having realized the lucrative market for animated films in which talking cartoon creatures, voiced by celebrities, have touching and hilarious family-saving adventures, the good people behind The Simpsons finally get around to bringing Springfield to the big screen. Looks pretty funny.

SIZZLER: Not Niiiiiice. Borat Beaten To A Pulp


borat_1.jpgIt had to happen eventually. In the most inevitable attack on a celebrity since Steve Irwin met a stingray, Sacha Baron Cohen finally got what was coming to him: he got punched in the face:

BORAT star Sacha Baron Cohen was beaten up by a passer-by after he tried to play a prank as his alter ego.

He approached the man and said: “I like your clothings. Are nice! Please may I buying? I want have sex with it.”

But the bystander didn’t see the joke. He took one look at Cohen and punched him in the face.

Who didn’t see this coming? The best part of the story, though, has to be the fact that it was actor Hugh Laurie who stopped the attacker and came to his rescue. House really can do it all!

Read about Borat getting knocked-out here. Reports have yet to indicate whether or not the attacker was Jewish (or if he possessed a Jew-Claw).

While You Were Not Seeing the Russell Crowe Movie…



  • Victoria Beckham hasn’t drunk water in years because she “hates the taste.” Though we know the real reason is because water causes dozens of little Posh Spice’s to spring out of her back. One more thing to cross of our “Victoria Beckham Might Be a Gremlin” checklist. Like she eats after midnight… please.
  • The real Andy Griffith sues a man who changed his name to Andy Griffith in order to be elected mayor. Funny that no one seems to be paying attention to the town child molestor, Opie.
  • Jude Law is single! Jude Law is single! Oh God, we really wish this would’ve happened before he morphed into a creepy old bald guy.
  • Mick Jagger‘s father passed away at 93 years old this weekend. We hope people are “getting off of his cloud” so that he can rest in peace in heaven.
  • Tobey Maguire‘s girlfriend, daughter of Universal Studios head Ron Meyer, gave birth to a little girl on Thursday, officially making the tyke the richest little bastard in America. Congrats Spidey!

Best of the BWE: K-Fed Ex-ed, Nickname Emerges



To find out what else happened this week, turn into Best Week Ever tonight @11 and all weekend long!

ICYMI: Borat On Martha Stewart On Leno


borat thumbs up.jpgWe almost did it. We almost made it the entire day without posting about Borat (besides a little mention in the While You Were’s). Almost.

Borat was on Leno last night and, as expected, he was absolutely hilarious. Not so much during his own interview– at this point we’ve pretty much heard it all before– but when Martha Stewart came out for hers. Even if you’re sick of Borat you have to watch this. Watching an uncomfortable Jay Leno try to keep up with this comic genius is too funny for words. And when Jay awkwardly asks Martha if she’s ever had 2 men at the same time? Niiiice. Click below to watch (in two parts).

What’d you miss while you were working today? Well, for starters, you missed the only ten men on the planet who know the words to “Lady Marmalade” rocking out on The Megan Mullally Show. You heard me: rocking out.

Man, those guys sure were happy, weren’t they? Happy. That’s the only way to describe them. Happy as hell.

The Most Annoying Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Contestant Ever


MILLIONAIRE1.JPGHere’s recipe for great television: Have a cognitive neuroscientist take advantage of the policy on Who Wants to Be A Millionaire:

Since the producers allow contestants unlimited time to work out answers (as long as they’re not just stalling), I knew that I could employ the most basic of priming tactics: talking about the question, posing scenarios, throwing out wild speculations, even just babbling — trying to cajole my prefrontal neurons onto any cue that could trigger the buried neocortical circuits holding the key to the answer.

Well la-dee-da, Mr. Scientist Man! Judging from his game-playing tactics, he’ll either end up a millionaire, or snag a coveted panelist seat on The View. Read his engaging account of his Millionaire experience here to find out how much he walked away with. For the dumbest Millionaire contestant of all time, click here.
