Sarah Palin Announces Resignation as Governor (Video)

Okay, I'm sorry...what the hell is she talking about? It sounds like she's afraid to pause after a sentence, lest any of us get a chance to actually think about what's being said, or reporters have a shot at asking questions. By the time she gets around to the "full-court press analogy," I sort of tuned out without realizing.

Leighton Meester, MJ, Billy Mays, @shiralazar a squirrel and me star in TWIYT #52. Take a look!

This was one of the most challenging episodes I've ever had to write because of all the celebrity deaths. I want to reference them, because our show discusses what's buzzy and in the news, and this dominated everyone's attention all week...And I have to at least attempt to be funny, because that's what we do.

But I don't want to make people upset or offend anyone. That's not what I'm about. So I try to find a happy middle ground, a way to mock the situation or the coverage, without making light of people's genuine feelings of loss and sadness. Not easy.

Making fun of Leighton Meester and Asher Roth? Easy.

The Freak-Out Guy has won at least 60% of the Internet at this point

Should we be concerned that there may not be enough Internet to divide between the rest of us?

Note for YouTube commenters: It doesn't matter if this is fake. It would still be awesome.

Local Reporter Talks about Michael Jackson, Refuses to Take Guff

So awesome...One of my top 3 favorite things about the Internet is how we all get to share in the glory of hilarious local news clips that otherwise would go unseen outside of a single urban area.

Bearded, semi-frightening infomercial star Billy Mays dead at 50

As if we hadn't lost enough beloved figures of American pop culture this week, pitchman Billy Mays was found dead this morning in his Tampa, Florida home. What is it with 50 year old guys dropping this week? That's only 20 years older than I am right now...Unacceptable...,2933,529328,00.html

This is my favorite Mays remix video...I'll be playing it while pouring out a little Orange Glo is Mays' memory...Definitely look for a tribute on next week's TWIYT.
