We were so struck by the idea of Baynonce this morning that we just didn’t have time for a Monday Cute. Fortunately for us, Animal Planet has just announced their Puppy Bowl MVP, a little pup named Marta who stood up to a lot of canines twice her size. Yup. Everybody go home.
The Colbert Report is going Hobbit themed all this week, so lets be honest: we’re probably going to be posting every interview he does. So, like when Doctor Who was running Pond Life every day for a week, we’ll package the clips with cute videos for everyone else.
Everybody likes cute videos. Only some people like videos where Ian McKellen says that Gandalf is more powerful than Magneto, though there should probably be more of them.
Rob Sheridan just created an entire generation of presentarians — children who are against opening presents. But don’t worry — it will only be a phase, like wearing black lipstick and talking about joining the Peace Corps. (via Kuriositas)
Okay, here’s the deal with this video. It’s a collection of “very special” moments from “very special” episodes of some of our favorite TV shows that were meant to teach us about the important issues in life. Such episodes were never very good, were preachy and embarrassing, and usually happened on sitcoms — which are comedies from which we are supposed to learn nothing. But they did it anyway. Whether it was cancer on Home Improvement, drugs on Saved by the Bell, drugs and racism on Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Urkel getting drunk on Family Matters … You’re not going to want a hug when this is over. You’re going to want everyone to just leave you alone and not bother you about their problems.
Okay, want to see puppies? There are puppies after the jump.
Today is an incredibly slow news day. We try to hide it with a mixture of good cheer, guff, and zeal, but today it’s also Friday. So here’s a dog with a very entertaining case of static electricity going on.
In many West Village pet shops in New York City, it is now officially against policy to buy a puppy while drunk. Because this was a problem. This was something people were doing. I mean, can you blame them? LOOK AT THAT LITTLE FACE.
