• Some guys turned a Subaru into a Jurassic Park Subaru. “What the hell did you do to my Subaru?!” their mom said, JK. -Geekologie
  • Jack Handey’s first novel is going to come out in July! ARE YOU SERIOUS? You know Jack Handey from his years as a Saturday Night Live writer and from “Shouts and Murmurs,” plus his collections of Deep Thoughts and short comedic pieces, but thus far you’ve never known him for a novel! Which is why I said this one is his first! What a treat! -Splitsider
  • The baseball movie 42 did very well at the box office over the past weekend, but do you know what the highest-opening baseball movie of all time was before 42? If so, why? You should learn more important things! -FilmDrunk
  • David O. Russell’s next film, the original name of which was American Bullshit, has gotten its new name. Want to guess what it is before you click through? Green Day’s American Idiot, that’s my guess. -NextMovie
  • In a new interview with GQ magazine, Robert Downey Jr. hinted at leaving the Iron Man franchise when his contract is up after Iron Man 3. But doesn’t he want to be Iron Man for the rest of his life?!? Noooo, Roberrrrt! -/Film
  • Conan O’Brien discussed The Simpsons with four other Simpsons writers in the latest episode of his web series, Serious Jibber Jabber. I haven’t watched it yet, but am looking forward to it! -TeamCoco

  1. I do not need to look up that baseball movie because I don’t want to have to see the internet choose between my two true loves, The Sandlot and A League of Their Own.*

    *I assume it’s one or the other. Has anyone even made any other baseball movies? If so, why?

  2. “What the hell did you do to my Subaru?” their mom did not say, because if you bought a Subaru, chances are you didn’t care what your car looked like to begin with. Pictured below, a Subaru upon my delivery of that line:

    • One does not just bash the state car of Vermont without me commenting upon it, scoldingly.

      • I wanted to make a Vermont joke, but then remembered that I know absolutely nothing about Vermont. I checked Wikipedia, but it was boring as shit. Now I’m just going to assume that Vermontians (Vermonters? Vermonsters? Vermounties?) just go around looking for stuff to say about Vermont to make your lives more interesting. All high fiving your friends, “Fuck yeah birthplace of Chester A. Arthur!” “Damn right, our state sounds like the least essential ingredient in a bar!”

        • Well. Yes, Vermounties do walk around high-fiving about how wonderful Vermont is, but I think the main attraction is exactly the secret plan you are closing to uncovering. We make it look like there is nothing here, that it is empty and boring, but that’s because like 90% of us just want to be peaceful and left alone.

          However, to bring up one larger point of pride, I will quote the great William H. Macy, “The great state of Vermont will not apologize for its cheese!”

  3. I really feel like if someone doesn’t take the screen name “Serious Jibber Jabber” that it’s a missed opportunity. That is just a good name for so many things!

  4. Why did I click on that link? I hate Slate! And I am getting tired of Louis CK overexposure. You guys, that article is the worst! The gist of it is basically “Louis CK does a lot of feminist material because he points out how bad men are all the time.” And the author seems to genuinely think that feminism is synonymous with man-hating, and that this is a good thing.

    • I read Slate one time. They should think about changing their name to Stale. (This joke was meant to remind you that Louis C.K. is actually pretty good at comedy despite the overexposure.)

  5. For reals I had no idea Jack Handey was a real person, I thought he was an SNL character used for Deep Thoughts…
