From MP3 Grillz to Michael Jackson’s Pet name: Daily Mail Links

I LOVE the Daily Mail.  I seriously start my day by getting my fix of British tabloids.   So here are my favorite links of the day:

1. Michael Jackson’s pet name for himself was “turd.”

2.   Honey Honey Boo Boo Child (aka Alana from Toddler’s and Tiaras) is getting her own TLC Reality Television show!!!!  If you are out of the child pageant circuit, this video will catch you up (it’s worth it):

3.  The family of a man who died in a threesome was awarded $3 million because his doctor did not warn him against extreme physical activity.  Because a doctor’s warning was totally gonna stop him…

4.  Grillz 3.0 – you can now play MP3’s through your teeth and this is somehow a growing trend.  The control panel is on the roof of your mouth, so you can change the music with your tongue…  U.S.A! U.S.A.!

Daily Mail, you are the best!


Pat Sajak “used to” get drunk and other Game Show hosts behaving badly

I love game shows.  But even more, I love game show hosts.  My top 3 favorite game show hosts of all time are: Chuck Woolery, Alex Trebek and Bob Barker.  And even though Pat Sajak, from Wheel of Fortune, seems like the creepy uncle I never had, he has a special place in my heart too.

SO, BIG SHOCKER HERE.  Pat Sajak recently admitted in an interview that he and Vanna White would get pretty plastered before the show in the early days of the Wheel.  As he states:

 Our dinner break would be two and a half hours long while they drove in cars and boats and gazebos…. We had a place called Los Arcos…. They had great margaritas, so Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six. And then come and do the last shows, and have trouble recognizing the alphabet.

Well Pat’s not the only one with questionable behavior.  Here are some other game show hosts behaving badly:

1.  Meredith Vieira gets hot and bothered for a young Navy pilot


“You can put your wet finger wherever you want it”

Nope, those aren’t quotes Continue reading

Jeopardy fans are not happy, may start nerdy riot

Please read Part I of the Jeopardy controversy HERE to get more fully up to date on the craziness that is happening among people who are usually too busy memorizing vice presidents, English royals and no longer circulating currencies (I kid, I kid. I love you guys).

A few days ago, I reported that Jeopardy has decided to close registration early for its online tests to qualify to be on the show.  Usually, you have until two hours before the test starts to register.  This year, they closed it off DAYS early without warning.  Rumor has it that hackers may have been a factor. Really, Jeopardy, just because we Jeopardophiles are smarter than the average bear, doesn’t mean we don’t participate in some good ole fashioned procrastination.

Things got awkward when they were still showing commercials saying you could register, despite the fact that registration was long since closed.

The correct response is “What is a douchey thing to do?”

Now, fans are not happy.  As one fan states on their facebook page:

Closing reg while still saying register on the tv sucks. I’ll be contacting Sony, SEC about false advertising, FCC, and the state Attorney General Department of Consumer Affairs. Hope others do the same.

YOWZER. That guy knows Continue reading

Funny Video of the Day: Triumph the Dog goes to Occupy Wall Street

I’m not going to delve into the whole politics of Occupy Wall Street for this post.  I do love a good protest and I do hate a bad drum circle, but that’s besides the point.  What I’ve found missing from both sides of the debate is some good ole fashion humor.  I feel like two sides have developed: you either are committed to the cause and take yourself way too seriously or you are one of those curmudgeonly curmudgeons who hates those Anti-American, anti-freedom rabble rousers (I may be simplifying things a bit).

That’s why I was oh so happy to see Triumph the Insult Dog on the Conan O’Brien Show visiting Occupy Wall Street. It’s a bit crass, but it plays around with both sides and challenges in a (for me to poop on sort of way) some of the hypocrisies going on.

(Sorry for the technical difficulties, but) You can watch the full video HERE.

After the jump, the best Triump the Insult Comic Dog video (at the Star Wars Attack of the Clones Premiere at NYC) Continue reading

David Cross joins cast of Modern family! Stop the presses!

So I usually don’t delve into television news on this blog, but I had to stop the HAHABUDA presses when I heard this: David Cross is joining the cast of Modern Family as a city council member who battles housewife Claire Dumphey (Julie Bowen).  Modern Family just upped the ante.

After the jump some of my favorite David Cross videos:
