Beck Bennett cannot possibly be his real name, right?

Switch to CBS This Morning. Charlie Rose will change your life.

Please note: if you are a dinosaur and read TIME magazine in the printed form, that is not the US cover of record. That issue is only available Internationally!

I was in a group project in 7th grade Technology (it was “Shop” but they can’t call it that anymore) class where we had to make a safety video for using the dangerous drills and other tools in the workshop. I was in a group with 5 slackers and we got almost nothing accomplished. It was a nightmare and I turned into a hounding nag a quarter of the way through like, “Guys, we have to keep working!” and then 3/4 way through the project our teacher informed us that we would be grading each other. The horror! I still could not give anyone in the group less than a B! I would have failed miserably at a children’s reality show.

Was anyone else nervous the plate glass windows would somehow be involved in this accident? Whew.

I agree with you Kelly, I fear Brooklyn 99 strong lead is going to hurt it as we make our way around the track or whatever racing metaphor I’m trying to work out here. Not that I don’t love being fully entertained the entire time I watch it, I just hope it has the stamina to cross the finish line (nailed it!)

Yes, similar to the episode of the office where Kevin kept crying at Pam’s boobs. Why does anyone think jokes about breastmilk are funny?

They are perfect for each other.

Do not pay attention the the estimated weight of your unborn baby. There is no way to accurately tell how much a baby weighs in utero. And often- even if the the doc has a clue as to how big your pup will be- they low-ball it so as not to scare the pants off of the expecting mom. Trust me, I got some really rando weights before my kid came out (at 8lbs, 8oz).

Maybe there are some “Dome is where the heart is” ones on sale?

The danger associated with allowing a sleeping toddler driving a toy car does not enrage me as much as the fact that this was recorded vertically. Please turn the camera, parents.

Oh, “a portion of proceeds will benefit a charity organized to bring awareness to cyber bullying.” So perfect. So so perfect.

Yes, it definitely dawned on me last night that he is really not a good guy. All the past cheating and lying about his identity and the basically assault of Bobbie Barrett (remember when he shoved his hand up her skirt?) didn’t really sink in until this episode. Maybe because it was coupled with Peggy’s obvious disapproval of how he treated Ted? So it just got called out more. I don’t know. I’m going to have trouble rooting for him going forward.

 +11Posted on May 10th, 2013 | re: Disney FINALLY Makes The Brave Princess More Beautiful (83 comments)

Agree. Agree. Agree. Also, I think a little bit of my confusion about this is that it’s being marketed to children and why would a child care if her boobs are bigger? Were children really saying, “I could love this movie, but only if the main character had a bigger rack.”?? I don’t understand where the need for the makeover came from, I guess.

Yes! Why is there never enough Donna on that show??

Gabe, it seems like you could easily get in touch with “his people” and ask him if he wants to get coffee and talk all on your own. “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Johnny Knoxville

I’d really love to know the original source of that quote… I imagine Katie Couric having a throw pillow with “‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’ – Anonymous” embroidered on it. It would look nice propped up on the other chair that she sits across from on the Katie show. Then when guests arrive, they could just hold it on their laps for the whole interview.

Is there a Public Group Stunt that involves giving out fistfuls of $100 bills? Because I would be ok with my routine being disrupted for something like that.

Let me tell you something, it’s every coach’s dream to experience the highest level of idiocy that his team can muster and gentlemen, collectively us coaches, we are living a dream.

I was kind of bummed that they went the “fake suicide” route with Jack’s character… I don’t know. I liked most of the episode, but when that was introduced, I got really disappointed. Leading someone to believe you are going to commit suicide is just not funny a funny concept. No matter if it’s Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin and it’s my favorite show in the world.

Agreed! No one was smoking in the mall??? How is this supposed to be the 80s? I hope they get it together for future episodes.

Are you recapping this every week??!?!!?!? (Please say yes!)

The Feud is a particularly good place for game show blunders because of the demanded quick response. Every single episode nets at least one gem, I’m sure of it.

I saw Cortney on Conan last night. She did not mention this pee story, but I might not have noticed because I was really distracted by her face… the fillers or whatever she’s injected in there… yikes. She looks nothing like the Monica Gellar of 1995.

It was on dateline the other night! I watched it (and the whole time I was imagining Gabe writing something about it). It was absolutely perfect. When he finished, “…extra came out,” the interviewer then clarified and said, “You pooped your pants?” And he repeated, “I pooped my pants.” So it was double verified.
