  • My boyfriend JoGo songifies the news!

    Joseph Gordon Levitt, the key holder to my locked heart, poster boy of my adolescent bedroom, and father of my digitally altered “what would YOUR children look like?” pictures, is a funny man.

  • Jerry Seinfeld is bashful about his fame

    Contrary to popular belief, Seinfeld did not crawl under a rock after his show ended and forgot he was famous. It was, in fact, on purpose. In a recent video posted on The Huffington Post, Seinfeld admits he just didn’t like “being a thing:” I left LA and I tried to break back into the… More ▸

    In true “Borat” fashion, Sasha Baron Cohen has decided to toe the line of propriety and release a statement about Kim Jong Il’s death… as the main character from his new movie, The Dictator. The statement, which was faxed to The Huffington Post, reads as follows:

Our thoughts go out to his wife and 813 children.”K-Jo” was a great leader, good friend and average double’s badminton partner. He died as he lived, in 3 inch lifts. An extraordinary man, he did so much to spread compassion, wisdom and uranium throughout the world.
    On behalf of myself, Ahmadinejad, Chavez, and Newt Gingrich, we would like to welcome his son, Kim Jon-Un into the “Axis of Evil”
    Oh, my. So many different ways that this could be offensive. Mocking the dead? Hating on Gringrich? Let’s just go for the fact that Cohen now fancies himself a dictator that mocks eulogizes real-life tyrants.
    Also, here’s a copy of the actual fax: More ▸
