AWWW
Lupita Nyongo Elmo
Lupita & Elmo Talk Skin

“Elmo can see that Miss Lupita’s skin is a beautiful brown color!”

That’s Elmo learning all about skin when “12 Years A Slave” actress Lupita Nyong’o visited “Sesame Street.” They talked about touch and tickling, but the most heartwarming part of their skin conversation is loving their skin color. I hope all the kids who watch Elmo and Lupita learn to love the skin they’re in, just like her. [YouTube]

This "Sesame Street" Parody Of "Homeland" Is Not Baaaaad
And now for a new episode of "Homelamb"...

Depending on who you ask, season three of “Homeland” is either going further off the rails than season two, or has helped the show regain the excitement and appeal of season one.

Baaaaah-rody is literally a wolf in sheep’s clothing! And don’t mind Saaaaaaaaul — he’s just feeling a little sheepish. As for Carrie? She’s as emotional as ever. [NYMag.com]
