I've been hoping she'd make fun of these commercials...and my wish has been granted.

I'll just let the picture speak for itself.

In the tradition of Cakewrecks, Passive Aggressive Notes, and STFU Parents, I'm proud to announce that my brother has started up his own "Found Humor" site:


So go! And submit pics of dumb license plates to you heart's content!

Tonight I watched "Revolutionary Road". I think my tubes tied themselves.

Anybody else see it? I kinda want to talk about it.

Today is apparently National Pro-Life Cupcake Day. No, really.

I'd wish you a "Happy" NPLCD, but since the point of the day is apparently to be somber and sad, it would be in poor taste:

Bring in a tray of cupcakes for any group of people and you will find that they will flock to get them. As soon as they take a bite they will probably ask, "Who's birthday is it?"

Then you answer. "It's no ones birthday. These cupcakes represent the 50,000,000 children who weren't allowed to be born, who never had a birthday." The cake in their mouth will become dry and the moment will hopefully become quite somber. Then you say, "If you and I were aborted we wouldn't have a birthday party either."

The Jezebel readers have come up with some pretty hilarious responses in the Comments section. If you should be accosted by a pro-life cupcaker next year, you'll have some pretty good ammo.

This is something I've been wondering about for a while now.
Very cool that it's actually being studied.

Dubbed "The Laughing Babies Study," the research is an effort to determine how infants discover humor and amusement, and its importance to bonding and attachment.
"Infant humor...gives us insight into what infants are observing and learning about the world. Prominent psychological theories suggest that children do not understand the minds of other people until they are about four years old. However, we have good evidence that older babies know how to use teasing, for example, to make other people laugh. This suggests that infants understand considerably more about other people's minds than they've been given credit for.
"[H]umor research gives us insight into evolution, as there is plentiful evidence that nonhuman primates and other mammals play and exhibit expressions similar to smiling and laughing. Since babies also exhibit these behaviors early in development, it suggests that nature plays a role," Mireault added.

They should do one involving dogs next.

Penne ala Vodka is my absolute favorite pasta dish. As such, I am extremely picky about it - it's gotta be JUST right in order for me to fully enjoy it.

So yesterday I found a P.A.V. recipe online, halved it, and made it for dinner tonight. It was...just...wow. I must share.

If you're like me, you die a little inside each time you see another one of your favorite filmmakers/actors added to the "I'm A Rape Apologist" Petition. But apparently not everybody in Hollywood thinks that being a great filmmaker and a disgusting pig are mutually exclusive, so here are a few glimmers of hope. It's not much, but after seeing that list, I'll take what I can get.

People Who Have NOT Signed The Petition
Werner Herzog (This may have something to do with the fact that Polanski also had an inappropriate sexual relationship with Klaus Kinski's 15 year old daughter.)
Steven Spielberg
Quentin Tarantino
Larry Clark (I know!)
Tim Burton
Clint Eastwood
George Lucas
Francis Ford Coppola

People Who Have Openly Condemned Polanski
Kevin Smith
Bill Maher
Kirstie Alley
Andy Borowitz
Neil Gaiman
Jimmy Kimmel
Mo Rocca
Jon Stewart
Melissa Gilbert
Cokie Roberts

I know rumors are going around that there are now 700 names on the "Only Big Fat Meanie Heads Want Rapists In Jail" petition, but I haven't seen that updated version yet. If anyone has any new info, feel free to clue me in.
