Not everyone's ready for the holiday, right?
Seems like it rushes up on you sometimes. Or maybe you're just not ready for it.
Sometimes, you need a little push.
Like Chris, who gets a visit and a sizeable nudge from a Jolly Old Elf.
A fun short film to get you in the spirit...
You know , right? Cards Against Humanity
The makers refer to it as "a party game for horrible people" that's "as despicable and awkward as you and your friends."
On Black Friday, they made an interesting offer to folks on their website: a box of male bovine excrement for a mere $6.
They used a more guttural expression that we really shouldn't be using here...
Now, the folks at CAH report that they sold 30,000 units.
30,000 units of genuine bull crap, amounting to $180,000.
I can only imagine how popular these will be at the office Yankee Swap this year.
Now if you'll excuse me. My dog just went outside, and I'm pretty sure there's a gold mine waiting to be picked up on my lawn.
Pope Francis celebrated his birthday yesterday.
Some folks took to Twitter to pass glad tidings, using #happybirthdayholyfather.
It looks like being the pope doesn't put you above the typical birthday pranks the rest of us have to endure, like sharing photos from your early years.
This one looks to be from 8th grade. What do you think?
Meanwhile, the pope celebrated his birthday the way you'd expect this down-to-earth guy to do it. He invited some homeless men and his household staff to sit and have breakfast with him after morning mass.
Looks like the daytime talk shows have better budgets than their nighttime counterparts.
Case in point: an audience member pointed out that Ellen Degeneres gives away phenomenal gifts to everyone in her audience.
It's the way she rolls.
Amazing things like personal cappucino machines, one's very own MRI unit (complete with Fabio, your MRI tech), and the not-even-out-yet iPhone 9.
Conan had nothing but half-a-sleeve of gluten-free Fig Newtons in his car.
Not to fear. Ellen to the rescue.
Check out what she gives to every member of Conan's audience.
I wonder if Conan gets to keep one...?
I know this is probably an impractical present, and that it will probably only survive one light dusting.
But Santa, I really really really really really really really want one of these.
A remote-control pickup with a snow plow attachment.
I've been really really really really good this year too.
Your Pal Mikey!
Sony Pictures announced formally today that it will not now and maybe ever release the movie they'd scheduled for a Christmas debut, The Interview.
The film, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco as some newsmen recruited by the CIA to assassinate the leader of North Korea, drew the ire of North Korea's current ruler, who said its release would be considered an act of war.
More recently, someone hacked into Sony's servers, releasing sensitive information and threatening some drastic action if the film were released as planned.
Some interesting folks are not happy at all. Like Donald Trump...
And Salman Rushdie...
But, here's the question that everyone wants answered...
Someone pointed out recently that there aren't any good Hanukkah songs out there.
It seems that the only choice is Adam Sandler's "Hanukkah Song," and that's not really about the holiday, just about folks who might celebrate it.
So along comes Six13, a Jewish a cappella group, and their parody of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off."
You'll have fun, learn a little bit about the holiday, and even how to play with a dreidel.
And you might start bopping along with the tune. Win win!
A dog helping her human make a snowman. If I could get Snickers to do thisthat would be adorable but it would have to be a little tiny snow man.....wait......that actualy makes it cuter.
