Friday newsflash

It's Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday!

Hey-o friends! Here are some newsy nuggets I'm chompin' this February Friday:

1. The recent winner of the Westminster Dog Show was Banana Joe, an Affenpinscher. What the crud is an Affenpinscher? Here's the lucky little guy:

I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable about the canine world, and I don't think I've ever heard of or seen that breed. He's a cute little son of a gun, though. I get a lot of giggles out of the winner being named 'Banana Joe', rather than some hoity toity thing.

2. Will Ferrell is still the funniest person alive. He showed up to a Laker's game pretending to be an official usher. He even wore the uniform!

The name on his uniform? Ted Vagina. BAHAHAHAHAHAH. He even fake escorted Shaq out of the arena. I actually really hope this wasn't research for a role, rather just a random comedy act. We need more of those in this world.

3. The Postal Service is coming out with a fashion line. Yep, true facts. A FASHION LINE. I think I need to support the cause and get the Ginger something like this:

The men's line will feature "'smart apparel' also known as wearable electronics". The line will be sold in "premier department and specialty stores." Como se what? The project is being totally backed by some company and the Postal Service won't have to pay, but they will receive a portion of profits. What a random thing. I'm not even mad, it's amazing.

4. Bikinis in Antarctica is just stupid. Just, flat stupid. Dumbass cultural icon Kate Upton will be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition like this:

As a part of a little "around the world" theme, they had her pose in actual Antarctica. At the shoot, it was 35 degrees below zero and they could only film her for a few seconds at a time because she "was losing hearing and eyesight because [her] body was shutting down." That's honestly the dumbest thing I've ever read. And can we all agree that it looks like a backdrop?

5. 2 Great Quotes of the Week:

"The colour's more vibrant, the experience is heightened, glitches were fixed, stuff has been added and frankly I don't know what the hell Blu-ray is!" 

-- Liza Minnelli explains Cabaret's new release on Blu-Ray
She's the best. Lucille 2 FOREVER!

"I'd give my right arm to be, like, a random extra on Girls. Just to walk past one of the scenarios ... I'd love that more than anything. Only, without the wig, they wouldn't recognize me." 

-- Emilia Clarke, aka The Khaleesi

6. Kate Middleton's first official pregnancy appearance:

UGH. She's so fabulous. I want to be a princess. I want to wear fancy dresses as a prego. I want to wear fancy dresses ever. I can't get enough of her.

6. Speaking of royalty, back in the ole U-S-of-A Prince Michael Jackson will join Entertainment Tonight as a special correspondent. That's the late Michael Jackson's son that we all know more affectionately as just Prince, age 16.

This is his entrance to the world, I guess. He hopes to be "well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor." Can't he just lay low? Haven't we voyeured that family enough? I just want those kids to do normal stuff. I guess normal just isn't in their blood. Quick pop quiz: which Hollywood power teen will he strike up a romance with? I can't even imagine.

Well, there ya go! I hope your weekend is packed with smiles and fun!


  1. I missed Kate Middleton's appearance! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She looks precious! And I love Liza Minelli!

  2. I absolutely LOVE princess Kate! Also, I totally agree that the bikini shoot was insanely stupid. And, that chick's boobs look bigger than her head (but I guess that's not really on topic, is it?)
    The first thing I thought when I heard the dog's name was Banana Joe, was banana hammocks, and THAT is an image I didn't need in my head!

  3. Totally saw Will Ferrel at that game and Paul and I were so confused... He didn't believe me that that was him at first. And yes, please, can I be like Kate Middleton every day of my life?!

  4. While Banana Joe is a great dog name, I think Ted Vagina would make an even more epic dog name.

  5. I mean, could that baby bump BE cuter?!

  6. I love the name Banana Joe! So funny! And so is Will Ferrell. Did Shaq recognize him? Kate Upton is running from interview to interview talking about this shoot. I expected her to be on an iceberg, not a cruise ship. Oh, Liza! She's awesome. Kate and Jessica Simpson due at the same time? Why is Kate adorable and normal and Jessica like 11 months pregnant already?


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
