- "Priorities" I've never been a late-night talk show fan, but Conan O'Brien cannot be this funny. Why all the fuss? A $40 million severance package? Really? That's not the most telling sign of our retarded concern over what's going on with NBC right now either. These dumbasses demonstrating in support of Conan are. About 100 "protesters" gathered outside the downtown Chicago NBC studio last night, demanding that Conan be their late night host. That's right, these guys took the (likely short) bus downtown in the middle of January, in orange wigs, and protested in support of a guy who aims to make more for not working than most of them will make in their entire lives. Actually, more than all of them will make in their entire lives. Combined. Because these are some dumb people. The "I'm With Coco" Facebook movement is a waste, unless they throw their support behind the other Coco. Then I'll hop on the short bus too.
- "Tiger" Nothing new here. He's gone into hiding. Duh. I plan on finding him though, b/c the going price for a Tiger Woods photo is hovering around Deal Or No Deal money. Like 500 stacks. Remember when the ransom for Bin Laden first came out and cats were like "man, I'm goin to Iraq right now to find Osama", even though he wasn't in Iraq? Well that's the mentality I'm taking with the Tiger situation. I'm starting at Denny's. Props TBL.
Medill alum Mike Greenberg called Martin Luther King a "coon" on national TV yesterday. Oh, but it was an accident. Still funny though. Suspect too; I don't know how you can accidentally say the word "coon". There aren't too many other uses of the word. Via HuffPost.
- "Anderson Cooper"
I don't care they poured ketchup over this kid's face and Anderson Cooper dropped him in each of the first 7 takes, this still looks pretty cool. I hope to everybody from Allah to
Brigham YoungZeus that this is legit and Cooper was just reacting. But if it's phony like everything else on TV, I still give him some props. Olbermann wouldn't go this hard.
- "Flocka" Brick Squad's interim bigshot caught a couple bullets at a gas station. 'Ohlehdewit' didn't come on, and, despite his lyrics, Flocka didn't bust back. He just took a slug to the arm and shoulder. You can go to Walgreen's and fix that up. Look out for a new Flocka mixtape to drop tomorrow. No coincidence there. Props TSS.
