Who Knew Christmas Decorations Could Be Weaponized?

Want to hear a story about Christmas decorations that escalates very quickly? Then you’re in the right place, because we’re about to go down Bonkers Lane!

In Ross Township, Pennsylvania, Fairley Road is a cul-de-sac with one house in the middle. The house in the middle of the cul-de-sac belongs to Bill Ansell, who, once upon a time, had a beautiful, dazzling display of Christmas decorations. Then, one Thanksgiving, one of his neighbors asked him to turn it off while she and her family had dinner, because it was so bright that it was interrupting her meal.

And that, friends, crossed a line. Keep reading »

Listen To These Audiobooks On Your Flight Home For The Holidays

Headphones

Now that “Serial” is over, what the hell are you going to listen to on your flight back to your family’s house for the holidays? My flight from New York City to my mom’s house is surprisingly quick, but it’s just long enough for boredom to start creeping in if you don’t come prepared with a book.

Watch President Obama Call Only On Female Members Of The Press At His Year-End Press Conference

"Mele kalikimaka, everybody!"

President Obama held his last press conference of 2014 today, and when it was time for questions, he intentionally called only on female members of the press. Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained:

Cast Of “Orange Is The New Black” Puts A Litchfield Spin On “The 12 Days Of Christmas”

Happy Holidays From Litchfield!

Though we won’t be getting new episodes of “Orange is the New Black” until the middle of next year, the cast has returned for a bit to wish everyone a Happy Holiday, with this Litchfield Prison-centric version of “The 12 Days of Christmas.”

Which is sad, because in real life, actress Annie Golden is an awesome singer who had a brief career as an 80s pop star, and a much longer career as a Broadway actress. In fact, she even originated the role of Squeaky Fromme in Sondheim’s “Assassins!” Maybe they were all just worried she’d steal the show again, like she did in the Christmas pageant in Season One.
