I’ve said it once, i’ll say it 1,000 times. People who can sing and people who do great impressions are the most talented among us. Now take this guy who can do BOTH. Bravo, sir, Bravo. I wish I could do even ONE impression. My “Jamaican” accent always seems to come out sounding like a truck driver from Alabama.
John Travolta has exited a kingdom of isolation to make a statement about his now-infamous Idina Menzel gaffe during Sunday’s Oscars.
“I’ve been beating myself up all day. Then I thought … what would Idina Menzel say … ‘She’d say, Let it go, let it go!'” Travolta, who introduced Menzel as “Adele Dazeem,” said via his publicist. “Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy ‘Frozen’ took home two Oscars Sunday night!”
Travolta’s flub was an instant viral smash, spawning fake Twitter accounts (here’s our favorite) and the “Adele Dazeem Name Generator” (HuffPost Entertainment becomes Hubert Edjans). According to E! News, Menzel herself was not fazed by the mistake: “She thought it was so funny. She was like, ‘What are you going to do?'” a source told the website.
Poor Danny. He’s got the eyes of a wet mop now. And he’s definitely not racing for pinks. OK so I was going to do this whole post with Grease quotes but I’ll save that for another day. On the real though (new catch phrase) John Travolta had one job Sunday: talk for 30 seconds and introduce an Oscar nominated singer who’s name was on the teleprompter in front of him. I’m not part of the camp who is saying he should have known her name because I haven’t seen Frozen and I have no idea who Idina Menzel is. But I am part of the camp who expects a professional actor to be able to pronounce a name on a teleprompter correctly. Naturally he just apologized like a normal person and now We can put this whole thing behind us. Oh wait, no he didn’t. He started singing the song of the musician who’s name he pronounced wrong. GOOD. Love me some John Travolta, but ever since his weird beach dancing commercial I can’t say I completely trust him. He’s losing his mind, and someone is going to reap the benefits.
The above picture has been hot fire all over the inter-webs. What you see there, if you don’t already know, is a what a McRib looks like frozen and before it is cooked. Looks like a mix between insulation and those road strips that they have on the side of the highway to alert you when you are drun…..sleepy at the wheel. Anyone out there who is offended by this picture wasn’t going to eat the McRib sandwich anyway, and honestly that means more for us. “Us” being the population who will be buying these by the truckload knowing that it is only a matter of time before they are taken from us again.
This is America, home of the processed foods. If you don’t like it, don’t eat it. Eat whatever looks appetizing to you. Just know, you are probably eating something else that looks equally as gross as the McRib does frozen, but not any where near as delicious when cooked. I can guarantee that this picture will not only leave McDonalds revenue on the McRib unaffected, but will increase sales. I’m hungry now. McRib city.

A U.S firm has introduced a range of unique beer ice creams, and unlike your usual tub of raspberry ripple, cookie dough or vanilla, they are alcoholic.
The ice cream, called Frozen Pints, comes in seven different flavours with the strongest having an alcohol level of 3.2 per cent – the same as a low-point beer.
The new range is the brainchild of Ari Fleischer, from New York, who says that the idea was born purely out of accident.
‘We were having a party and a friend brought over an ice cream maker to make homemade ice cream,’ explained the 29-year-old.
‘But another friend spilled a beer nearby, and I watched it happen and thought “this is a great idea!”
‘I’m really passionate about craft beer, and love ice cream, so I picked it up as a hobby and started experimenting with different flavour combinations.
‘We start with the beer as it is all about finding the best, most flavourful craft brews – and then build a flavour around them.”
Who does the marketing for this company, Jesus Christ? Because they are knocking it out of the park. Frozen Pints? Genius. “Have your beer and eat it too”? Double genius. Everybody loves ice cream. Everybody loves beer. Now you’re telling me I can eat a bowl of ice cream and get hammered at the same time? What a beautiful thing. The only thing I’m worried about is once I have these Frozen Pints I’ll probably never want actual bottled beer again. I’ll just be a man with his ice cream beer, ready to conquer the world.
…A paleontological expedition from the Research Institute of Applied Ecology of the North, North-Eastern Federal University, and the Russian Geographical Society discovered a female mammoth in a remarkably good state of preservation in the Novosibirsk archipelago in Siberia. North-Eastern Federal University has partnered with controversial South Korean cloning scientist Hwang Woo-Suk (who was found to have faked data involving a procedure to clone human embryonic stem cells) for a mammoth-cloning effort… – CNet
Scanning through my G+ feed this morning I stumbled across this article and I immediately got a science hard-on. A Woolly Mammoth just chilling (quite literally) in Siberia. The ancient giant is so well intact that its muscle tissue and blood almost perfectly preserved. “The fragments of muscle tissues, which we’ve found out of the body, have a natural red color of fresh meat” (Full article here) This of course led me to one interesting thought…..Mammoth Chili! No, I kid, i kid. Cloning of course! and these researchers had the same idea. So much so, they are enlisting the help of cloning “bad-boy” Hwang Woo-Suk (What a name) to help them out. So what does this mean for the future? It means that I am going to have a Woolly Mammoth, Kevin, to help guard my collection of Ferraris.
P.S. Do I smell a real life Jurassic Park?
