It was once the third largest metropolis in the land. An international city that gave rise to purely American products like the ice cream cone and Budweiser. Now, ravaged by crime, suburban sprawl and urban decay, it's a husk of itself. Little more than Detroit South. It's a tough place. It's the riverfront spread Read more

Good for you. Unfortunately, I have seen several episodes. It's a weird show in that resurrects the simplistic social comedy tropes of '70s sitcoms, without adding a layer of irony or mocking contempt. But, I'll say this: I think it's an example of how syndication breathes life into terrible primetime network TV. This Read more

This is a fart story. Right after finals during college, I took a two-hour bus ride to the airport. I was flying from one major Midwest airport to another on a small airline. The plane was so tiny, it didn't reach the Jet-Way, and we had to walk across the tarmac to it in a thunderstorm. This wasn't a "puddle jumper," Read more

I love how Fey refers her collaborators by their last names like they're all on some hilarious, comedic-film-making football team. "Yo, Dratch, get the led out! This take is behind skedge! Rudolph! You kiddin' me with all that breaking?! Great improv Poehler, take a knee."

Realistically, this kind of list is valueless. A list like this should focus only on metropolitan areas. No parents, or rationally thinking people, are going to look at this list and say, "Gee, I need to find a job in Gilbert, Ariz. or Hialeah, Fla." But the Chula Vista, Calif. Chamber of Commerce will finally have a Read more

I have a favorite color. It's been my favorite color since I was 3 years old. I've been romantically/sexually attracted to the same general physical profile of people since I had my first crush. I didn't decide on either of them. Neither of them is a bad thing. Being attracted to the look you like doesn't mean that Read more

I'm just going to guess that there is very, very little risk Steven will impregnate a woman at "some college party" any time soon.

Golf clap for the Roma Downey reference... Fantastic work. Just wonderful.

Lena Dunham looks like she is wearing a melting popsicle. (Don't worry, Girls fans, nobody will see this because Gawker/Jezzy writers won't approve it.)

How could this be the WORST Emmys ever? Nothing in this post singles out a uniquely terribly quality of the show. It had some clunkers, sure. But, shit, the worst ever? It was fine. So, I just ate a sandwich. It wasn't the most memorable and perfect sandwich ever. That makes it worst sandwich ever! Right? Eh? Right?

When I run for Congress and get these letters, I'm sending medieval-style chastity belts to anti-choice groups.

I'm not a race fan at all, so can somebody explain why Stewart does these sprint races? After he missed so much time breaking his leg in one, what's the point of doing these piddly little dirt-track races against semi-pros? Surely he doesn't need the money. Is just because it's fun? I understand why some top drivers Read more

This is perfect example of why, "Don't be a dick," is just a good rule for life. For argument's sake, let's forget that he was fighting with Ward, and let's assume it was just a terrible accident Stewart would do anything to take back. It doesn't really matter for his reputation because Ward's death now looks like Read more

Is it possible that Blue Cheese Guy had a really bad sense of taste, and just ordered the things he enjoyed eating because of their texture? If you can't taste it, could see more well-cooked meat having a more pleasant mouth feel. And blue cheese could be a fun texture to play with if you can't taste much. And iced Read more

Do you know how to read? Did you understand anything in my original comment? I said nothing about racism being written into any code. Or about it being "systemic." Or about it not being a problem on an individual basis. So... Do you know how to read? Or do you just ignore others' words and rational thinking and start Read more

That's a really mean thing to say, it's not productive to the discussion we're all having here, and it doesn't defend your argument. Have a good weekend.

Sorry, I wasn't goofing on your typo, Gay, a published author, used "waived." That's what I found mildly humorous.
