I usually don’t watch the quirky videos CNN often puts up on its site. Today, though, I was intrigued by this headline: Watch: Snake, man kiss 51 times, serpent woozy. So I watched it. And lo and behold, it was indeed a man kissing a snake 51 times. It’s truly one of the most bizarre things I’ve ever seen, and it made me realize that as much as reality TV sucks, the United States is still way ahead of the rest of the world in terms of what we do for entertainment.
Watch a man kiss a snake here (in the Offbeat section.) Oh, and I promise you that it’s really a man kissing a snake… and not just a clever synonym for gay porn. Enjoy.
I’ve been frustrated for a long time by the fact that there are too many good shows to keep up with, but last night after The Sopranos, I reached my breaking point. Already exhausted from having been through the tense campaigning in The West Wing, I was totally drained after watching Tony fighting for his life and his family just fighting. So drained, in fact, that I couldn’t watch Grey’s Anatomy. I had planned all along to Tivo Desperate Housewives and Big Love, but missing out on Grey’s was just too much. How am I expected to be able to talk to my coworkers about Sunday television on Monday morning when I can’t even watch half the good shows?

Tom and Katie, in another brazen attempt to assert Cruise’s raging heterosexuality, inflict even more emotional trauma upon the increasingly abused psyche of young Connor. For shame.
According to the News of the World, Tom Sizemore has a book coming out that claims that he lost his virginity to a hooker at 14, has slept with more than 2,000 women (including 40 in one night), and of those women, Paris Hilton was the second-best lover next to Liz Hurley because "I was in love with her."
Aww, that is so sweet, y’all!

Well, it was right here on the BWE blog that you first discovered the epic online war being waged by Joe Rogan upon a college student known only as Kevin. The story has now spread to countless blogs and media outlets across the World Wide Web (Information Superhighway), but we think it is fitting that the final chapter in this bloody saga be posted right back here where it started. So, in case you missed last week’s episode of Best Week Ever (for which there is no excuse!), here is our segment dedicated to the bravery and heroism of "Internet Warriors" Joe Rogan and MySpace Kevin.
