  2. Spend Seven Minutes in Heaven With Tina Fey [VIDEO]

    i'll just leave this here

    Here is your daily dose of Tina Fey, in which she acts out Liz Lemon in Breaking Bad, does a 1.5 second Sarah Palin impression, decides which Cosby she'd be OK with watching her shower, kisses the interviewer, offers her opinion on Presidential "doinking," and says that she once made out with John Goodman, all in three minutes and 34 seconds. In a closet. Take note, all you fancy current affairs-type 24/7 news network journalists. This is what a quality interview looks like.

  4. Sarah Palin Fans Accused of Editing Wikipedia to Right Her Wrongs About Paul Revere’s Ride

    This past week, former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin attempted to explain Paul Revere's historic midnight ride in a manner that many history buffs took issue with. Specifically, speaking to an audience at a church visited by Revere, Palin described Revere thusly: "He who warned the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms, by ringing those bells, and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free." While it sounds from Palin's account as though Revere was warning the British, according to the New York Times, "In fact, on the night of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere rode out from Boston to warn the American patriot leaders Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching from Boston to Lexington to arrest them." Palin has since claimed that she "know[s] her American history," knows the details of Revere's ride, and is the victim of a "gotcha" media. But several political bloggers report that Palin supporters have taken a rather more creative approach to defending her from criticism: Going straight to the Wikipedia article on Paul Revere and editing it to make history sound more in line with Palin's recollection of events.

  7. Sarah Palin’s Wall Pranked by Facebook Users

    A group of Facebook users who are evidently not fans of Sarah Palin (and probably are fans of Stephen Colbert) have orchestrated a crafty "letterbomb" campaign on her Facebook wall. If the message isn't obvious enough already ... well, the real message is in the profile pic column, not the comments about "feminist pizza power." Evidently, Glenn Beck and Fox News were letterbombed as well.

  10. moot Called to Testify in Sarah Palin E-Mail Hacking Case; Forced to Define “Trolling,” “/b/tard,” “Rickroll”

    Earlier this year, 4chan founder Christopher Poole, a.k.a. moot, was called to testify in the trial of David Kernell, a 4chan user who was ultimately convicted of computer fraud and obstruction of justice for his role in "hacking" into Sarah Palin's email account and leaking screenshots during the 2008 election. Note that this "hack" consisted of "reset[ting] Palin’s password using her birthdate, ZIP code and information about where she met her spouse — the security question on her Yahoo account, which was answered (Wasilla High) by a simple Google search"; not exactly the height of state security. Anyway: During the trial, moot was asked by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Krotoski to define some common online and 4chan lingo, including "troll," "Rickroll," "404," ".jpg," and even "/b/tard." (Yes, this is a violation of rules 1 and 2, but hey, he was under oath.) Some choice excerpts below:

  12. We ToneCheck Famous Speeches: Confusion Ensues

    Do you ever have that feeling where you're staring at an e-mail, mouse over the send button, unsure that this really conveys the message you want to send. Maybe your phrasing is a bit off. You wouldn't want someone to get the wrong idea, after all. You don't want a giant conflict to arise that was all the result of a simple misunderstanding. If only there were some sort of program that could check to make sure the tone of your e-mail is appropriate.

    And now there is, kind of. Lymbix, a Canadian tech startup, has launched ToneCheck today. It's a program that runs through Microsoft Outlook, which I just discovered is really aggravating, and it sifts through your e-mail like a spell-check, telling you if something might be too sad or too angry. In theory.

    In practice, it's HILARIOUSLY WRONG VERY OFTEN! And even when it's right, there's hilarity to be found in having it analyze the tone behind some of the greatest and worst speeches of all time. We happen to have documented instances of both kinds of hilarity. Let it begin!
