Is Michael Cera just teenaged American Hugh Grant?

This compilation of scenes of Cera doing his trademark "mumbly embarrassed guy" schtick certainly makes the case that he's been permanently and horrifically typecast. I've seen all these movies/shows save "Nick and Nora" and even I occasionally would need a minute to figure out where a given clip came from. This guy needs to do an action film or something.

Though I've sort of tired of his whole routine at this point, I AM considerably pleased that he's agreed (according to the most recent rumors I've heard) to come back for the potential "Arrested Development" movie. You need the entire Bluth Family intact for that to work, I suspect...

Vanessa Hudgens, @SeanieMic's take on Biz Markie, my man crush and @shiralazar's geek video on TWIYT 57!

I think this one came out particularly well. Also, I get to insult the people of Belgium, coming right on the heels of my mocking the people of Argentina a few weeks back. Shall we just start doing this alphabetically? Look out, Cambodia!

Limbaugh compares Obama Health Care logo to Nazi Reichsadler

There are only two possibilities, to my mind:

(1) The similarity is unintentional. The Obama logo combines a familiar symbol for doctors/medical care along with the classic "Obama logo" from the 2008 campaign. It's just similar shapes.

(2) The similarity is intentional, and Obama is a Shadow Nazi. He's stupidly revealing to us his actual, dark intentions, via the use of logos, and Rush Limbaugh's the only American savvy enough to put the pieces together, sort of like a paranoia-and-Oxycontin-fueled, obese version of Tom Hanks in the "Da Vinci Code."

Can't really decide, though...Both options seem so plausible.

Checked out the big relaunch?

I approve of their anti-Whoopi Goldberg platform, but I strongly disagree with their anti-Blingee platform...hmm...

Barack Obama eats socialist birthday cake

This is a link to an actual blog post in which a conservative lady bitches about not liking the design of Barack Obama's birthday cake. For real. Also, I'm not sure if you guys have heard about this, but he's sort of like the Joker! zOMG!

I just really wanted an excuse to link to a blog that features the following sentence:

"Love him or hate him, George Bush had a real cake for his birthday."

OK, I will grant him that, and only that. George Bush succeeds in a way we typically only celebrate for 1-year-olds and pets - eating a delicious looking cake on his birfday.

Murdoch-owned news websites to start charging

Stung by a collapse in advertising revenue as the recession shredded Fleet Street's traditional business model, Murdoch declared that the era of a free-for-all in online news was over.

"Quality journalism is not cheap," said Murdoch. "The digital revolution has opened many new and inexpensive distribution channels but it has not made content free. We intend to charge for all our news websites."

OK, fine, quality journalism isn't cheap. Agreed. But what about what Rupert Murdoch publishes?

Considah Dis a Divors

Is it standard cop procedure to "punk" people who try to hire undercover cops as hitmen? Or did they just make a special exception in this case because it was going to be so hilarious and awesome? I'm not sure, but I likes it.
