A Danish game show called Total Blackout invites contestants “to compete in a series of outrageous challenges” while immersed in total darkness.

I would have called the show “When Brown Eye Met Pink Eye”.

Meanwhile, a President Obama “lookalike” promotes KFC China’s fish fillet sandwich for some reason.

KFC 家鄉鮮魚柳軟包 – A版奧巴馬 10″版. Exactly. Silly sheltered Chinese. Black people would never pass up fried chicken for a fish sandwich. Get to know your stereotypes.

Jason Segel & Paul Rudd finally get around to slappin the bass with the guys from Rush. Finally, their I Love You, Man dream has come to life. Could this mean there is a sequel in the works?

Mac Lethal sums up Richard Linklater’s epic movie Dazed and Confused in 2mins.

The best thing about this movie is as I get older, it stays just as cool.

On last night’s episode of The Office Michael Scott bumped into David Brent. The universe did not implode.

The best fake “fan upstaging a mascot” routine you will ever see. Fact.

Either way, that little dude is totally getting laid.

But wait there’s more! The half-time show madness continues…in this game, ball dunks you!

A lot of people were too busy looking at Facebook and asked for an abbreviated version of Obama’s hour long State of the Union Address. The Internet, as usual, obligingly delivers…

To sum up, the key word here is “Salmon”.

Last year, Ryan Murphy (the creator of Glee) approached Kings Of Leon and asked them if their music would like to appear on the show. They politely refused, just as they did when they were asked if their music could be used for a commercial and on Ugly Betty. But what Kings Of Leon didn’t know was that Ryan Murphy is a bitter drama queen who doesn’t understand that the world doesn’t revolve around him and his subversive show that wants your son to wear a dress and lip gloss. Kings Of Leon quickly found out in Murphy’s interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Fuck you, Kings of Leon,” Murphy said. “They’re self-centered assholes and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song,” Murphy continued, “which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It’s like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music.

What Glee does is turn kids on to music, huh? I looked through the full song lists from Season 1 and Season 2. It’s songs from Broadway musicals, REO Speedwagon, Barbara Streisand, Journey, Britney Spears, and Lady Gaga. Or basically a playlist for the lobby of a bathhouse.

Meanwhile, Kings Of Leon lead singer, Caleb Followill, responded to these comments with the logic and reason you’d expect from someone who isn’t in the middle of a hissy fit. “This whole Glee thing is a shock to us,” he told THR in response to Murphy’s diatribe. “It’s gotten out of hand. At the time of the request, we hadn’t even seen the show. It came at the end of that record cycle, and we were over promoting ["Use Somebody"]. This was never meant as a slap in the face to Glee or to music education or to fans of the show. We’re not sure where the anger is coming from.

Okay Ryan Murphy, let’s see what Kings Of Leon are missing out on …

… I need a shower.

The greatest butter commercial ever. Fact.

Omelette making is now art. Don’t even try to deny it.

PARIS—At a press conference Tuesday, the World Heritage Committee officially recognized the Gap Between Rich and Poor as the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” describing the global wealth divide as the “most colossal and enduring of mankind’s creations.”

“Of all the epic structures the human race has devised, none is more staggering or imposing than the Gap Between Rich and Poor,” committee chairman Henri Jean-Baptiste said. “It is a tremendous, millennia-old expanse that fills us with both wonder and humility.”

“And thanks to careful maintenance through the ages, this massive relic survives intact, instilling in each new generation a sense of awe,” Jean- Baptiste added.

The vast chasm of wealth, which stretches across most of the inhabited world, attracts millions of stunned observers each year, many of whom have found its immensity too overwhelming even to contemplate. By far the largest man-made structure on Earth, it is readily visible from locations as far-flung as Eastern Europe, China, Africa, and Brazil, as well as all 50 U.S. states.

The original Seven Wonders of the World pale in comparison to this,” said World Heritage Committee member Edwin MacAlister, standing in front of a striking photograph of the Gap Between Rich and Poor taken from above Mexico City. “It is an astounding feat of human engineering that eclipses the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids of Giza, and perhaps even the Great Racial Divide.”

According to anthropologists, untold millions of slaves and serfs toiled their whole lives to complete the gap. Records indicate the work likely began around 10,000 years ago, when the world’s first landed elites convinced their subjects that construction of such a monument was the will of a divine authority, a belief still widely held today.

Though historians have repeatedly disproved such claims, theories still persist among many that the Gap Between Rich and Poor was built by the Jews.

Its official recognition as the Eighth Wonder of the World marks the culmination of a dramatic turnaround from just 50 years ago, when popular movements called for the gap’s closure. However, due to a small group of dedicated politicians and industry leaders, vigorous preservation efforts were begun around 1980 to restore—and greatly expand—the age-old structure.

“It’s breathtaking,” said Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, a longtime champion and benefactor of the rift’s conservation. “After all we’ve been through in recent years, there’s no greater privilege than watching it grow bigger and bigger each day. There may be a few naysayers who worry that if it gets any wider, the whole thing will collapse upon itself and take millions of people down with it, but I for one am willing to take that chance.”

Added Blankfein, “Besides, something tells me I’d probably make it out okay.”

I love the part where she says sausage pork beef cheese whole milk butter margarine nuts.

I’m pretty sure this is what they make you watch at the Scientology orientation.
