Well, that week only lasted two days for us here. What a dream it was! If only we got a new year every week, no one would ever get any work done and the world WOULD BE PERFECT! Just a bunch of people rolling around in the mud, eating it, napping, talking about “what if there was a Netflix,” burying ourselves. But, I guess we have to live in this dumb world where people have to get work done and live a life of somewhat purpose, or so we must think. Next week we’ll be back to that life, all week. I’ll see you then! Have a safe and nice weekend!

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the New Year’s Baby Side-Eyes Jenny McCarthy Caption Contest, and the Editor’s Choice.

My other crush is on this hippie…


Fun fact! He was a bouncer in Argentina when he was younger. Best Pope ever.

Considering Jenny McCarthy is basically the #1 cause of death among children, I’m assuming that kid’s thoughts are filled with expletives.

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

I saw Saving Mr Banks with my mother. It was good. I enjoyed myself but remain skeptical about a lot of it. My mom liked it too, even though she missed some major plot points until pretty late in the game. And then when we were in the car driving home she asked me, “Now, who was Mr. Banks?” MOM!

[Ed. Note: “Now, who was Mr. Banks?” is so funny, every time I read it I laugh. A+, flanny's mom. I mean, F, obviously, but also A+.]

  1. Congrats everyone! I’ve been super sick all week and haven’t been able to stir from my NyQuil-induced stupor to comment, but I’ll be back on Monday, I guess, if I haven’t died by then. RIP me, possibly.

    • Hope you feel better!

      • Thanks! I will as long as my lungs don’t succeed in their quest to escape from my body.

        • Feel better!

          Lizzing #RIPLIZZING / #COMEBACKTOUSLIZZING taught me a really good tea last winter that is boiling hot water, fresh lemon, honey and ginger. Stir and drink as soon as you can stand it. It is my favorite when I feel bad.

          I also make a solid spicy ramen from some hippie cup o’ramen from Whole Foods (McDougals?) + a packet of red ramen instant + a packet of yellow ramen (sludge constancy) and chopped up scallions and garlic. Then I add cayenne pepper, black pepper, ginger, drips of hot pepper oil from some kind of hot pepper oil made from sesame oil. Put it in a big bowl, cover for 5 minutes and slurp as needed. You may wake up with what I call a “salt hangover” where you have somehow gained 20 pounds of water weight overnight and you may look like you had been crying, but it goes away with a couple cups of coffee and a run. Also, most of these things are available through Amazon if you are a person who stockpiles ramen ingredients because sometimes your store runs out.

          • Can I say that this soup sounds delightful and I may have to try it this winter when I am needing a crazy spicy soup fix?

          • It is my current favorite soup and I just figured out how to make that very wonderful mellow red/yellow lentil soup that always needs salt, pepper and lemon juice at Indian and Middle Eastern restaurants.

          • How random that the first time I look at videogum literally in months, there’s a eulogy for me. I see you bb, missing me. and I’m right here. On twitter.

          • Good. So now you know I WILL CUT YOU if that is what it takes to impress Mia Farrow’s son.

  2. Awww, my mom is pretty cute! I will accept this honor on behalf of her because she would not understand what the fuck this website it. Thanks for being cute, mom! (And also thanks for giving birth to me 32 years ago this Sunday!!!)

  5. Lovely. So glad things are returning to normal. Plus, more new Sherlock this weekend! Oh, I am having a very good January so far…

  6. I just had a long phone call with an old friend as both of our New Year’s resolutions involve actually doing normal friend stuff and not just gchatting and whatever as we both spend all of our work time on the Internet and were feeling like binary humans… And it was GREAT. We even tentatively made plans to see each other in PERSON some time this year!!! Plus it was so lovely to talk to a friend still doing similar stuff and how we still absolutely loathe the same things, which is literally how we became friends 15 (!!) years ago. Yay.

    And then I learned I got into the Ball with my favorite 2013 crush, who is The Pope! IN YOUR FACE, RATZINGER!!
    And I am having an Oatmeal Stout that tastes like dessert!

    I feel like Milhouse on the day he wore short pants and that flood went through. I mean !!!
