There have been a LOT of funny things to come out of the Sochi Winter Olympic Games — ranging from the embarrassing and gross photos that continue to come out via @SochiProblems to poor Olympic athletes getting stuck inside places (more than once) … but I don’t think anything to come out of the Winter Olympics has been as funny as the new Tumblr site Shoshi Games. Someone had the genius idea to mash-up the Shoshana character from Girls with various Olympic sports. The results are … damn hilarious. Check it out below. More »
Ugh. So this morning I was watching live the KTLA Morning News broadcast as I do every morning while I work and I was able to watch entertainment reporter Sam Rubin‘s live interview with Samuel L. Jackson as he promoted his new movie RoboCop. From the start, the interview didn’t really get off on the right foot and when Rubin asked Samuel about his Super Bowl commercial, confusing Jackson with Laurence Fishburne who featured in a KIA commercial, Samuel went OFF on Rubin and ripped him a well deserved new one. Now, I have been watching KTLA every morning for pretty much the entire time I’ve been living in LA (almost 8 years), so I’m very familiar with Sam Rubin‘s reporting. I will say, honestly, that he does get things wrong sometimes … he’ll report something that is wrong or a little wrong but it’s not usually a big deal (IMHO). We all make mistakes, I make mistakes like that all the time. I sometimes confuse actors for other actors unintentionally. But this glaring mistake just came at the wrong time, obvs for Samuel L. who decided that he had had enough. Sam Rubin used to go out of his way to make fun of Britney Spears, saying really nasty things about her in his position as a reporter on a local news station — and that has always pissed me off. I tried to call him out on Twitter every time he did something like that and to his credit, he has stopped picking on Britney (he even mentioned on air that I kept calling him out on Twitter). While Sam Rubin isn’t my fave reporter (which is a shame cuz I LOVE KTLA), I couldn’t help but cringe for him the entire time Samuel L. was eviscerating him on live TV. I’m not at all surprised that this video has gone viral. It’s painful to watch but considering how fed up Jackson is at being confused for other Black actors, I guess it was finally time for him to do something about it.
Why am I so emotional over the end of 2013?! Well, truth be told, it was kind of an epic year. The name ‘Miley Cyrus‘ has rolled off of my tongue (LOL…) more times than I ever thought was possible, and I friggen had a friggen baby. Those two things alone are enough to make 2013 one of the most unforgettable years ever in the history of everdom. And so many other crazy things happened, which is why I’m glad I collected them all under PITNB‘s very own ‘That-Ish-Cray Of The Day‘ category. I invite you to relive the magic of TLC‘s mermaid man, our favorite, foul-mouthed sorority girl, and Justin Bieber nekkid. Oh yeah. That ish was cray. And some of it, NSFW. Click inside for more!

Get ready to LOL. The Jimmy Kimmel Live show brings us their top picks for YouTube clips of the year, and it’s all pretty funny. Toronto’s controversial mayor Rob Ford (the one who admitted to smoking crack… true story), the monkey in a snow suit, and scared boss– they’re all here! Peep the video to see all the nominees and the winner! Personally, money in a snow suit had me rollin’!
It’s that time of the year, folks! 2013 is almost DUNZO and I can’t believe we are actually approaching 2014. One thing I love about the end of the year is the part where we get to look back at all of the music, movies, and madness that defined the past 12 months. We’ve heard some funky mash-ups of some of the year’s biggest pop tracks and on this very special Throwback Thursday I’m looking back at some of those songs that I’m a wee bit embarrassed to say I fell in lurve with. So 1.) Don’t you dare judge me, and 2.) click inside for more!
Actors James Franco and Seth Rogen have been busy filming a new movie together called The Interview and in between filming takes, they decided to make a scene-by-scene spoof of Kanye West‘s new music video for his single Bound 2. As you may recall, when Kanye debuted his Bound 2 video on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week, it caused quite a bit of discussion among folks here on the blog. Now, it would appear that James and Seth are going after a bit of that attention themselves. Folks, this video, titled Bound 3, is funny as Hell! Check out the embed above and enjoy … ‘cuz trust me, you will enjoy. Love to PITNB readers Terry and kmw9260 for giving me the head’s up about this video.
I can’t WAIT to hear what Kanye West will have to say in response.
The video embedded above features a viral vid that has been making the rounds today and after I watched and rewatched the clip about 24,000 times, I thought it prudent to share the goods with all y’all. The video features the Purdue University Gymnastics Team in a lip dub music video for the song Tidal Wave by Sub Focus (a song I never heard before today). As you can see in the clip above, the members of the Purdue Gymnastics Team are extremely bendy … and oftentimes shirtless (especially the guy in the blue shorts). Check out the video above and see what you think (if it helps you can watch the video on mute). If you don’t have time to watch the whole video now, you can click below to see the video’s best scene in animated gif form. Please enjoy. More »
PITNB reader Ronald pointed me in the direction of this AMAZINGLY cute video of a 2-year old baby girl dancing to Britney Spears‘s music video for Work Bitch and as you can see in the video embedded above, the baby girl literally dances out of her diaper along the way. LOL! I’m telling you, this is the cutest thing you’ll see all day/week/year. Check it out and enjoy … I know you will :D
This past Monday popstar Miley Cyrus released a music video for her pop ballad single Wrecking Ball and has since garnered more than 73 million views on You Tube. Yesterday, a new version of the video made its way to the Internets but this vid replaces Miley‘s face with that of actor Nicholas Cage. Yes, it’s as frightening as that sounds. This version of the music video, Wrecking Ball (Nicholas Cage Edition), is much shorter than Miley‘s music video but, trust me, it’s worth watching … for the nightmares alone. Click the embed above and … enjoy?
Even though both my parents were professors, I’ve recently discovered a newfound appreciation for teachers. As some of you know my oldest son started Kindergarten this year, and whoo! They are not playing around at his school! He has had so much homework during this first week, and it’s been amazing. At the same time, sitting down and trying to get him to complete his Spanish assignment has me all like, ‘Yo. I don’t know how these teachers do it!‘ But beyond the daily work, there’s another element to teaching in America that is, unfortunately, far scarier. Hopefully, none of us have forgotten the massacre that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School last December. A mother of one of the victims– a 6-year-old girl named Ana Grace– recently penned a letter in Education Weekly to the brave teachers of Sandy Hook, and the teachers heroes of America.
