ICYMI: Even House Has to Pay The Rent


You know the term “Some men get better with age”? We’re pretty sure Hugh Laurie, Evvy Award© Winner for “Emmy’s Sexiest Man”, is one of those guys. Check out this 1986 Polaroid commercial, where a less scruffy, almost Saget-esque Laurie tries his best to instantly capture the soul-baring pain of a struggling actor.

The 5 Most Absurd Moments In VMA History


In honor of the VMA’s tonight, Cracked put together a list of the 5 Most Absurd Moments in VMA history. I’m not sure why narrowed it down to five– the list could be much, much longer– but they pretty much hit the nail on the head. Especially with their inclusion of R. Kelly’s epic, unforgettable performance of “Trapped In The Closet” (below). If you’ve never seen it, be warned: you’ll never, ever, ever be the same again.

So what was your favorite VMA moment?

So John Travolta is boarding his private jet while planting a strong, powerful man-kiss onto the mouth of some dude with a desperate passion known only to wives whose husbands have been away at war for six or seven years. Form your own conclusions, but this is the 90’s, you know – things are different now. Also, he’s a Scientologist.


One question, though – in the highly unlikely circumstance that John Travolta were to be gay, would he be considered a bear?
