If you've never watched any skits by Key & Peele, allow me to introduce you to them. They have a sketch comedy show on Comedy Central, but they're also quite popular on Youtube. In honor of the upcoming Super Bowl, they've released the third video in their East/West Bowl series, which pokes fun at the sometimes ridiculous names football players have. I was wondering how they'd top the first two (which you can watch below, and I'd recommend doing so first if you haven't already seen them), but there are a few surprises in this third installment that put it over the top.
Also check out the first two installments if you haven't already done so. Again, I'd recommend you watch these first, but it may already be too late for that suggestion. If it is, you should still watch them.
Yesterday was the NFL's Super Bowl Media day. Marshawn Lynch, running back for the Seattle Seahawks, was threatened with a $500,000 fine from the league if he didn't show up and answer questions. It appears he was required to sit down with the press for a minimum of 5 minutes, and he did just that, answering every single question with some variation of "I'm just here so I won't get fined."
Every. Single. Question. Check it out, it's pretty hilarious.
You gotta give the guy props for his style and resilience. Get the full story here.
Cat Fact #1: Cactuses are more lovable than cats.
WAIT WAIT WAIT! Before you stop reading, let me explain.
I got to discussing this with my roommate after I showed her this adorable video of an armadillo playing with its favorite toy:
She asked me why the internet is so obsessed with cats when there are so many better animals out there, concluding her thoughts with "Armadillo > cat." For hyperbole's sake, I told her that even cactuses are more lovable than cats, which seems ridiculous... but then I actually got to thinking about it.
What if cactuses only have prickly exteriors because they've been hurt? Inside they're warm and juicy. Cats don't care about you or your problems, they just want to be fed and tended to. They have nothing to offer you, and wouldn't offer it if they could because they're selfish. But a cactus can save your life if you are dying of thirst in the desert.
Cats don't care. Cactuses do, they're just reluctant to open up and show it.
Which led to this exchange:
So the next time you come across a cactus, don't be like this cold, uncaring cat. Cactuses need love too.
Do you remember your first kiss? I remember mine. Although it was less "KABLOOIE!" and more "OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD I HOPE I'M DOING THIS RIGHT."
I was just harassing some coworkers for being on Twitter at work (via Twitter, of course) when, ironically, I found this picture of the ideal workplace.
Fox is bringing a live version of Grease to your TV screen in Januray of 2016, in the vein of NBC's The Sound of Music and Peter Pan. One thing Grease will have that those other two productions lacked, though: my girl Vanessa Hudgens.
Sandy & Rizzo, respectively (via GossipCop)
Julianne Hough will star as Sandy and Vanessa Hudgens will play Rizzo, which is fantastic, because that means I can now watch Vanessa in BOTH of my favorite musicals about life in high school.
Add on top of that the possibility of the return of The X-Files, and Fox is making some pretty bangarang decisions these days.
