Yup, even alongside smart-assery from Samantha Bee and Jason Jones, watching gay couples wed makes me tear up! The adorable “Daily Show” corresondents — a husband and wife duo of 10 years — were there on Sunday when same-sex marriage became legal in New York State; somebody had to warn these couples about what they are getting into.

Stephen Colbert is always on the lookout for injustice against menfolk. And where do men suffer the most than in the field of genital cleaning products? Women have long enjoyed empowering cleaning agents marketed to their dirty vaginas. But the poor, dirty penis? Shamefully ignored. What nerve!
When Summer’s Eve douche products unveiled their new “Hail To The V” commercials last week, Colbert could not take it any longer. This injustice has to stop.

Some of us were lucky enough to see Amy Winehouse perform live before she passed this weekend at the age of 27. Fewer of us were lucky enough to see her when she was really at her best, before drug and alcohol addiction started to chip away at her ability to channel her truly extraordinary talent. In 2007, Winehouse performed on “Live on the BBC” and this video of that session is 51 minutes of her being just fantastic. (FYI, the volume is sort of low up until the 6:31 mark.) [Dangerous Minds
