Wonderful Pistachios have really stepped up their ad game in what seems like an exorbitantly expensive way. I mean, they’ve landed Snoop Dogg, Homer and Bart Simpson, Psy at the height of his awful-moment-in-pop-culture fame, even the Prancercise lady … I had no idea there was so much money in pistachios. This latest video star also couldn’t have come cheap, but how they got Dennis Rodman is just not one of the questions I have about this clip. No, there are so many more, like why they thought it would be a good idea to feature a green-haired Rodman being obliterated via red button by a doppelgänger for his close pal Kim Jong Un. So many questions, and not one of them is whether or not I’d like to go buy Wonderful Pistachios right now.

Yesterday Jezebel got ahold of an email that had been sent out to 72 members of an Administrative Law class at a law school in Canada. The anonymous student who sent it has some choice words — 655 of them, to be exact — for his or her classmates regarding a very specific topic: their snacking habits. I could go on about this person’s hilarious disdain for crunching noises and how I actually kind of agree about the “don’t eat tuna sandwiches in enclosed spaces” thing, but really, you just need to read this letter for yourself… Keep reading »
Jaden Smith is little more than a super-rich child actor with a famous family who has enough money and foolhardiness to encourage others to drop out of school once and for all so they can be just like him (i.e. all but incapable of differentiating “there” and “they’re”). But is he also Amanda Bynes? Not for anything — Amanda has been diagnosed mentally ill, which is clearly no laughing matter — but Jaden has been seriously biting Amanda’s Twitter flair while she’s in treatment. Same enthusiasm, same spotty frequency, same self-possession, same syntax, same loose grasp on the English language, same weird sense of ubiquity … it’s uncanny. Contrast and compare, and I’ll let you draw your own natural conclusion: Keep reading »
Overall, blogging is a pretty sweet gig. You can do your job from a coffee shop, you get instant feedback on your writing, and on any given day your work to-do list might include “Write a listicle about therapeutic breakup songs” or “make GIF of Celine Dion’s facial expressions.” Sure, your grandma will never understand what you do for a living, old school writers won’t let you sit at their table in the metaphorical lunch room, and anonymous commenters regularly call you ugly, but for the most part, we love our job and wouldn’t change it for the world.
You know what else we love? Headphones. Facebook shares. Celeb shoutouts. Sweet comments. In true blogger fashion, we thought we’d compile a list of all these random little things that make our internet-obsessed hearts swell with joy. Read on for 27 things that bloggers can’t get enough of… Keep reading »

Sarah Silverman went on “Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell” on Thursday to hash out … well, a lot of stuff.
First, there were Bell’s problems: eight years ago when Silverman’s comedy/documentary “Jesus Is Magic” came out, Bell wrote an impassioned blog post (on MySpace, which is what we did back then) about how he thought some of her jokes were racist. Now when you Google his name, that post comes up rather highly. But Sarah Silverman had no hard feelings, I guess, because she wanted to work with Bell a couple years ago. All should be well and good, right? Well, no. Silverman recently appeared at the Comedy Central roast of James Franco, where she cracked a bunch of gay jokes. One of the “Totally Biased” comedians responded to her with some (frankly dumb) jokes about how old she looks. Forty-two is practically dead. So W. Kamau Bell played that dumb clip for her while Silverman was his guest on the show and what resulted was a really refreshing conversation about sexism. Keep reading »
Basically, “Strangers With Candy” is my religion and Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People is my Bible. I suppose this makes Amy Sedaris my own personal Jesus? Maybe not that exactly, but something close. On a recent episode of Jimmy Fallon, Amy gifted us all with an instructional on how to make edible kitty litter and cat turds. You never know when that sort of thing will come in handy. So, you’ll probably want to stay fully stocked at all times with crushed walnuts, cocoa powder, and 100 Grand bars for the scat. Oh, and don’t forget your fake teeth. I have no idea why. But Amy ate the litter and poop with fake teeth and I have faith in her. There’s a gratuitous Jerri Blank GIF after the jump. Just cuz.
