On last night’s “Colbert Report,” Stephen invited Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys and Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend on to figure out who should win this year’s Grammy for best alternative album. To settle the score, Colbert challenged the two bands to a “sell-out-off.” While the Keys have a Victoria’s Secret and Zales commercial under their belt, Vampire Weekend boasts commercials for Honda and
Tommy Hilfiger. As Colbert notes, “Clearly, you have both equally whored out your music.” So true! [Comedy Central

Guys, this video might be NSFW. It’s a veritable cross-species animal orgy, featuring a llama, a randy cat, a bunny and a chicken. The cat is going absolutely wild making biscuits on the llama’s furry back. Ooh, scandal! [BuzzFeed

Sarah Palin has lashed out at critics who say her at-times violence-tinged political rhetoric influenced Jared Lee Loughner, the man who shot 14 people this weekend in Tuscon, Arizona, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. “After the shocking tragedy, I listened puzzled, then with concern, and now with sadness, to the irresponsible statements of those attempting to apportion blame for this terrible event,” Palin said. “President Reagan said we must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions. Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing district used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their first amendment rights at campaign rallies, and not with those who proudly voted in the last election.” Keep reading »
I caught the tail end of Matt Lauer’s interview with Snooki
on “The Today Show” this morning and cringed as he sort of scolded her for being such a drunk. (She swears she’s just a wastoid during the summer.) But I apparently missed the best part of the interview, when Snooki taught Matt what a “weenis” was. Now, before you watch the video, let’s see if you can guess the definition:
- A contraption a woman can use to pee in public without exposing her backside.
- The wrinkly bit of skin on your elbow.
- Snooki’s male alter ego — full name, Weenis Sambucco.
For the record, I was clueless as to the definition of the word “weenis” and I never thought I would learn something new — except maybe dance moves — from Snooki. Keep reading »
I love me some bad reality television, but, as we suspected when it was announced
, the new Hulu series “Genuine Ken: The Search for the Great American Boyfriend” is just too
bad. Let’s recap the trailer here, shall we? Whitney Port
hosts as eight Ken-testants (personally I’m routing for Compassionate Ken) compete in weekly challenges to win the title of Great American boyfriend. The winner, like the doll, will be the man who proves he possesses all the qualities that make him the “ultimate boyfriend for every occasion.” While this concept is obviously airtight, the trailer raises a few important questions. Do these men have actual wieners or just plastic crotches? Is there a real-life Barbie waiting at the end … who does Genuine Ken become boyfriend to? And most importantly, who decided to hire Whitney Port? How did they manage to pick a host less interesting than an actual Barbie doll? [Genuine Ken
