  2. The Best Kind of Infection

    I don’t think you can know happiness until you’ve truly known sadness. I held my mother’s hand as she passed into the Great Mystery, and boy did that ever change me. I can’t flip that switch again, back to naiveté and blissful ignorance. Nor would I want to.

  15. Registrations on Cheating Website Shoot Up Tenfold the Day after Mother’s Day

    How did you spend your Mother's Day? Maybe you woke up in the morning and brought your mom breakfast in bed. Some of you might have bought flowers and candy to your grandmothers. Jewelry may very well have been involved. Personally, I treated my mom and family to a late dinner. She still nagged me about forgetting my sweater, but it felt nice being out and being able to say, "Thanks, Mom, for giving birth to me and putting up with my neuroses."

    Or maybe you didn't do much of anything. Maybe you forgot to buy a gift for your wife, or partner, and hoped to high heaven that it would be ok come Monday. Maybe you slept on the couch, or got into a fight so bad your ears are still ringing. But hey, it's ok, right? It's one day of the year, so you tell yourself you'll make up for it next time while you try to remember your anniversary.

    Monday passes, and the tension starts to die down. You kiss your lady goodbye as you both head off to work, and all is right with the world. You're in the clear, right? Bad news. Remember Greg from the 4th floor? His wife left him yesterday. Momlogic gives one reason:

    "31,427 Women Signed Up to Cheat after Mother's Day."

    And every married man in the room starts to sweat.

  17. Betty White Coming to SNL On May 8th: Thanks, Facebook [Followup]

    We've previously reported that the Facebooking hordes successfully petitioned SNL to get Betty White to host. Mow, we've got a date: May 8th, the night before Mother's Day.

    USA Today is reporting that Betty White will be hosting the May 8 broadcast of Saturday Night Live after refusing the spot for years. White, whose legendary status has persisted to a younger generation through her role in The Proposal, playing beer pong with Jimmy Fallon, and, yes, those Golden Girls reruns on Lifetime, became the center of a Facebook campaign to get her to host after the debut of her new Snickers ad during the Super Bowl. And Lorne Michaels couldn’t sound happier about it:
