Does this only apply to me, or is Zach Galifianakis the dream man of nerd girls everywhere? The voice of Humpty Dumpty (yes!) in the impending update of Puss in Boots emerges from a desk, tells a few jokes, gives Conan some talk show-hosting advice (Zach is the host of “Between Two Ferns,” the most brilliant talk show ever), asks to go to the bathroom, and never returns. I’m in love. [Team Coco]
Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison appeared on “Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers” yesterday — and let’s just take a moment to acknowledge how far Dr. Drew has fallen by having these two on a show called “Lifechangers” as I’m pretty sure the only life they’ve changed is mine – to discuss “The Pumpkin Patch Fiasco.” For the record, though the moms were complaining and eventually got Daisy Duke-clad Courtney booted because of “the kids” (nice air quotes, Court!), “The dads loved it!” Oh, I’m sure.

I read the entire Twilight series in just under a month, and by the time I reached the pivotal scene in which Bella and Edward finally get to make sweet, icy cold, passionate vampire love, I was pretty much ready to explode. And I wouldn’t even consider myself a true Twihard, so I can imagine the truly obsessed fans of the series — like this chick – are going to have some sort of simultaneous mass climax when that fateful honeymoon scenes hits the big screen in “Breaking Dawn: Part 1.” Here is a sneak peek to whet their/your appetite.
What part of this amazing “Pizza Party” rap from Fly Guys do I not love? Trick question: I love all of it. ALL OF IT. Please, why doesn’t every rap song reference Papa John’s crack butter sauce? “I got pies on pies on pies. Pies for days,” say the Fly Guys. Better believe it. [Buzzfeed]
Gather ’round, nerds: (Amelia, that means you!) Tim Gunn sat down with the web series Crazy Sexy Geeks for a trés serious critique of “Star Trek” fashion. It’s still interesting even if, like me, you could care less about “Star Trek” because the host is a fountain of information about the costuming decisions for the “Star Trek,” especially when it came to dressing the women to appear more “sexy” out in space.
Oh, and there’s some really obvious space-peen. That never hurts. [The Mary Sue]

My personal political beliefs tend to be on the very liberal end of the spectrum, so perhaps I am not the best judge of Herman Cain’s popularity as the favorite candidate for the Republican nomination for President. But political differences aside, the Georgia native and former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza seems genuinely, legitimately, and proudly uninformed about a host of issues. One thing he is well-versed in, however? Numerology. Yes, numerology, i.e. the study of the “mystical” power of numbers. On last night’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” following a segment about how former President Ronald Reagan organized his schedule based on the advice of Nancy Reagan’s astrologist (to the chagrin of his Chief of Staff), Maddow revealed that Cain believes the number 45 “is magic.” Say what?
