Jew Learn Something New Every Day: On Mitzvah Campaigns And “Bageling”

If you live in New York City, or if you've ever paid a visit to the fair metro during a Jewish holiday, there's a good chance you've witnessed this fairly common practice: an Orthodox Jewish man, or perhaps two or three, dressed in traditional garb, stands on a street corner, asking select passersby if they're…

Zach Galifianakis Interrogates Justin Bieber, Whips Him With Belt On “Between Two Ferns”

If you're at all sensitive to the plights of one unhinged Justin Bieber, get ready to feel uncomfortable! As for the rest of us, who have been waiting patiently in the wings for some seemingly responsible adult to call Biebs out on his bullshit … who better to step up to the plate tha…

Bills Clinton And Gates, Hangin’ Out, Takin’ Selfies

Man, do I love a good Bill. Murray, Cosby, Clinton, Nye, Gates… I'll take 'em all. Bills are just the best! Here are two of them (Clinton and Gates, to be specific) captured in the form of a genuine @billclinton selfie. This looks just like a selfie my dad would take. Read:…

A New California Law Will Allow Minors To Digitally Remove Online Activity

Let's hope this will one day extend to apply retrospectively, too… A new piece of California legislature, signed off on by Governor Jerry Brown, has the potential to clear up a whole slew of problems for the minors of the future. The law, which will go into effect in 2015, will require Internet companies to…

Burger King, Get Your Lower-Calorie “Satisfries” Out Of My Face

When I decide it's high time for me to procure myself some fast food French fries, the last (last!!!!!!) thing on my mind is their caloric content. No, when I decide that I done deserve some fries, I don't care how many calories they're gonna cost me, or where those calories are going. They are…

Designer Philipp Plein Casts Exclusively Black Models In Runway Show

Another Fashion Week, another heap of headlines reaming out the industry for the lack of diversity on the runway — it's not to suggest that the conversation is overplayed, but rather that the long-standing issue remains an issue, season after season. Most designers, as a general rule, in a notoriously judgmental climate, cast black and…

Miley Cyrus And Tongue Land Rolling Stone Cover, New Mike WiLL Made It Music Video

I am running out of things to say about Miley Cyrus, I mostly just wish to see a little less of her exposed tongue. It's just so much tongue! Even Cher thinks it's too much tongue, and also that the Cyrus tongue was "coated," which is v. true, and v. gross.

Brooke Mueller Caught On Camera Smoking Crack And Buying Meth

The magic of Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen's wife #3, has always been that she makes Charlie look comparatively almost-sane. The reality of Brooke Mueller, on the other hand, is that while it's more than likely that Charlie is a very wealthy, very famous man who has chosen in some ways to wander dow…

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Gets “Caught” Having A Gluten-Free Meltdown In Public

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a fucking genius. Let me lay it out for you: the actress and comedienne, perhaps best known as "Seinfeld"'s Elaine, has received four Emmys, a Golden Globe, and five Screen Actors Guild Awards. She's the only woman to have won the Emmy for three separate comedy series, and is also the most…

The Delusional New York Times Vows Column To End All Delusional New York Times Vows Columns

The New York Times Vows column is truly one of a kind. Week after week, the meet-cute stories land all over the spectrum, from the truly romantic to the strangely political to, very frequently, the totally twee and bizarrely short-sighted. To wit: this week's tale, titled "Found, A Soul Mate," which regales the…

Yep, “Jewtopia” Is A Real Movie Starring Jennifer Love Hewitt And Some Other Jews

Oh, good, just what Judaism needs: more fetishism and bizarre cultural misappropriations! Because that whole Holocaust thing wasn't enough persecution. No, we need more. More, I say! And it must involve Jennifer Love Hewitt. I'm going to tell you the truth; I haven't deigned to watch the trailer for "Jewtopia". I'm just going to put…

This Miley Cyrus Sweatshirt From Beloved Shirts Is Everything

Miley Cyrus has reached her zeitgeist saturation point several times over, and I would not be upset if I never saw her bare ass or exposed tongue ever again. We've just seen too much…

Watch The Trailer For Cannes Winner “Blue Is The Warmest Color”

The Palme d'Or is the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival each year, presented to the director of the best feature film. Past honorees have included such notable favorites as "Amour," "Fahrenheit 9/11," "The Pianist," "Pulp Fiction," and "Taxi Driver" — so it goes without saying that walking away with the Palme d'Or…

Lizzy Caplan Talks X-Rated Cookbooks, Masturbation & “Masters Of Sex” With Conan

Dear Hollywood: USE LIZZY CAPLAN MORE. She's only, you know, PERFECT, and I just cannot fathom how she hasn't been put to better use. What is it about her that just seems to go straight to DVD?! With "Mean Girls," "Cloverfield," "True Blood," "Party Down," and "New Girl" all under her supporting-actress and/or regular guest…

Justin Long Walks Amanda Seyfried’s Dog In NYC So We Can Probably Assume They’re Really Dating

Hey, that handsome dog looks awfully familiar… Either we've got a documented case of dognapping on our hands or Justin Long has all but confirmed his relationship with Amanda Seyfried by walking her beloved mutt Finn in NYC's Union Square. I really like this new celebrity couple, don't you? I hate to…

Diane Kruger Shares The Story Of Her Horrific First Date With Joshua Jackson On “Conan”

As far as Perfect Celebrity Couples go, fashion fave Diane Kruger (whose life we are, for myriad reasons, totally jealous of) and former "Dawson's Creek" star Joshua Jackson are up there. They're both gorgeous, seem endearingly down-to-earth, and most of all, although her career is on the up and up and hi…

Nothing To See Here, Just Your Standard Horse On A Roof

It's a rare, impressive instance in which a legitimate photograph outdoes a Photoshopped piece in all-around inconceivability, but I daresay this real-life horse on a roof does just that. Pat Downey's brother-in-law Archie snapped this bizarre photo of one of Pat's racing horses just hangin' out on the roof of her New Brunswick farmhouse. Don't…

Amy Poehler Tells An Adorable Story Involving Her Son, His Lisp & Spicy Salsa

The outright coolest mom/lady/feminist/human in Hollywood — nay, on Earth — is Amy Poehler. HANDS. DOWN. The woman is as flawless as they come. There are no improvements to be made upon the Amy model. We were devastated and disoriented when she and ex-husband Will Arnett parted ways, but once we…

This Dog Bears An Uncanny Resemblance To Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Putin is sort of like the small-boned Chuck Norris of world leaders — think an unassuming Renaissance man who will straight-up end you. (If you aren't well-versed in the art of Putin, might I point you in the direction of his 8 most ridiculous publicity stunts?) The man has hi…
