Yesterday millions of people participated in “A Day Without Immigrants”, a massive demonstration to protest the recently proposed US immigration laws that would deny many immigrant workers basic rights and protections. Since this can be a complex issue, we created this helpful mash-up in which a Spanish-speaking Mr. T explains to you these important and topical issues:
If you’re interested in learning more, you can find tons of protest photos and recaps over at Boing Boing.
NOTE: In case our Spanish-speaking readers are confused, we simply wrote sub-titles and edited footage (dropped via reader cdotchen) that actually has nothing to do with immigration. We think it’s funny.
Think you know boobs? Prove it. Take the What’s Her Bra Size? quiz from Zipperfish.com and see how you do. This ridiculous game (with hilarious NSFW audio commentary, by the way) has everybody from Jennifer Aniston to Jennifer Love Hewitt to Jenna Von Oy. Let’s see how much attention you’ve actually paid to the lovely lady lumps of our favorite female celebrities. And Jenna Von Oy.
I was a little disappointed in myself only guessing 71 out of 100 correctly. That makes me a C student. However, since I’m a dude I feel as if I should be graded on a curve. So I’m going from a C to an A… which is actually the exact opposite of what most of the ladies in this quiz have done since moving to Hollywood. Anyway, now it’s your turn. Good luck!
And just like that, Taco Bell’s “Make A Run For The Border” slogan finally hits home.

What if we were to tell you one of Hollywood’s most famous couples are on the verge of splitting up after finally setting a date for their wedding? After pre-nup pressures and scandalous family problems, their relationship is at a total standstill, with neither party interested in tying the knot.
Pretty good blind item, right? If I told you that couple was TomKat, Brangelina or even DJ AM and Nicole Richie, it’d be a great gossip story, true?
If you watched the video, you already know that Stephen Colbert’s “give me hilarity, or give me death” speech at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner has earned him the honor of being regarded as the Patrick Henry of the Comedy Central set. But I happen to be of the opinion that this particular Daily Show alum is also having the Best Week Ever.
His comments were so full of uncharacteristic “Truthiness” that the mainstream press is intentionally ignoring his remarks, clearly hoping as few people as possible hear his bitingly brilliant vocalization of the outrage many Americans have been feeling for years. The good news is some people ARE paying attention to Colbert’s success, as he was profiled this week in a feature on 60 Minutes, which you can watch here in three parts. Unsurprisingly, Jon Stewart praised his performance, astutely noting that “apparently he was under the impression that they’d hired him to do what he does on television every night”.
Finally, at the writing of this post, 84% of the participants in today’s Gawker poll (and would could really be more representative of impenetrable fact?) have voted Colbert’s stunt “one of the most patriotic acts I’ve witnessed of any individual”.
Thank you, Stephen Colbert: Best Week – and best patriot – ever.
Mash-ups were feeling so two months ago, until GaylenOraylee posted this one in our Drop It section. You don’t have to have seen Requiem for a Dream or Toy Story, to know that Pixar-animated characters cursing about their heroin addictions spells pure entertainment.
What do Madonna, Bono, Bob Dylan, Bill Clinton, George Clooney, Kurt Cobain, and hundreds of other celebrities have in common? Besides probably banging Paris Hilton? Well, they’re all on the cover of Rolling Stone’s 1,000th issue.
Bart Simpson and Kenny are there. As is Elvis, Jimi and Britney. But here’s my question: who’s missing? Who deserves to be on the cover that isn’t? Who would YOU want to see? Answer in the Comments. (For the record, I’m outraged that the Spin Doctors didn’t make it. Come on, they’ve been on the cover before…)

In honor of United 93 exploitation week, be sure to check out the season 3 premiere of The Post Show, featuring BWE’s own Bob Castrone, as they hilariously send up Hollywood’s willingness to profit on the 9/11 tragedy.
