Herman Cain and Spider Monsters
Some people are speculating that Herman Cain’s tax plan for America was “inspired” by the computer game SimCity. Herman’s Plan: The corporate income tax rate would be 9 percent, the personal income tax rate would be 9 percent and the national sales tax rate would be 9 percent. SimCity’s Tax Plan: The default tax rate was 9 percent for commercial taxes, 9 percent for...

Ryan Gosling & Golden Girls FTW
On the day that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is officially repealed, and twenty-two days before National Coming Out Day, this man exemplifies bravery by coming out to his father and a friend. Remaining in the closet is one of the most difficult things a person can go through. The knowledge of being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender never leaves you. And if you’re forced to...

Oprah hosted SNL! I felt her monologue fell flat mid-way through, but she did an ok job. Thankfully she wasn’t as bad as Andy Roddick hosting.

Best Ad Ever?
I-O Digital Cable Watch a lotta channels (yeah) whenever you’re able! This is probably my favorite cable comercial. The best part? The “guest” rapper in an Octopus/Kraken costume. I hope Optimum’s advertising or marketing department got bonuses. And if Optimum used an agency, I hope that agency got a Clio.
Did I Do That?
I was never a fan of Steve Urkel, but I have to admit Jael White in the new Cee Lo Green video is pretty awesome. I love that the 90s are slowly coming back into my life. I’d like to think Steve turned back into Stefan Urquelle, who now woos Laura Winslow by being in Cee Lo Green videos. But if we really take a minute and think, we can all agree that Alfonso Ribeiro belongs in this...
One of my favorite songs is “If I Were a Boy”. It has great hooks, and it perfectly articulates modern gender roles: I’d put myself first And make the rules as I go Cause I know that she’d be faithful Waitin’ for me to come home There are 3 different versions of the song: one by the song’s writer BC Jean, a cover by Beyonce, and a cover by Reba McEntire. Each of the...

So why oh why did you tarnish your image by creating a Billy Ray Cyrus comic book? He has no nerd cred! Plus he had a mullet. Ugg you just broke my achy breaky heart.
