It’s no fair that talk show hosts like Conan O’Brien get to hang out with baby jaguars and I don’t. Animal handler David Mizejewski, I really think you need to make a stop off at The Frisky offices with your cadre of cute furry things for a visit. We have a conference room you can totally treat as a baby jaguar playpen. I’m sure the rest of the folks at the company won’t mind at all. And you can bring that binturong, too (watch to the end to see what that is). [Conan O'Brien]
We’ve been waiting for someone to come up with a solid spoof of “The Bachelor,” and Michael Ian Black and Ken Marino have finally done it. Their show, “Burning Love,” features Marino as the typical clueless, self-centered bachelor, weeding through a classic assortment of hysterical lunatics and weirdos to find “true love.” Kristen Bell, Malin Ackerman and Ken Jeong — as delectable choice Ballerina — all play potential love matches, as does Jen Aniston in a surprise (big surprise!) cameo.
After watching the most recent episode of “Girls,” I came to a rather interesting conclusion. I think the world can safely be divided up into two types of people: 1) People who would laugh if their significant other peed on them (on purpose, as a surprise) in the shower and 2) people who would be mad if such a thing occurred. I am firmly in Camp Laugh Out Loud, along with Julie and Ami, while Winona and Jessica are in Camp Be Furious. (For those of you wondering where Option 3 — “would be turned on” — is, erotic golden showers are another subject entirely.)
Personally, I would laugh at the utter ridiculous ballsiness of such a prank. Plus, I’m not a germaphobe and even if I was, I figure urine is sterile and besides, I am in the shower cleaning already anyway. What’s NOT funny about that? Well, Hannah on “Girls” didn’t find it funny when new official boyfriend Adam pissed on her as a joke, but perhaps that’s because she’s young. Come to think of it, Jess and Winona are younger than Julie, Ami and I, so maybe appreciating a surprise golden shower for what it is — hilarious! — comes with age and maturity. Yes. That must be it.
You can’t call Grace Jones’ performance at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration anything less than spectacular. She sang “Slave to the Rhythm” while hula-hooping. Like, she kept the hoop up the entire time. Look at her legs! I need to remind you all that she’s 64 years old. I hope I can still pull off a latex leotard and headdress at that age. New thing to aspire to. I bow down to you, Grace. [WOW]
Oh my god, file this one under “Spoof Videos That I Wish Would Become Real Life” — it’s “The Wire: The Musical,” featuring original cast members Michael K. Williams as “Omar,” Andre Royo as “Bubbles,” and Sonja Sohn as “Kimma,” singing and dancing about drug dealing, shooting heroin, and busting caps! Seriously, why can’t this work? I would happily drive to Baltimore for opening night. (On another note, who ate Stringer Bell?) [Funny Or Die]
