Anna Dhody is the curator of the Philly's Mütter Museum, of the grossest/coolest places in the city. On Friday, Dhody stopped by Reddit to tell the Internets all about the gross/cool stuff the museum has to offer.
She says that the anal tattoo device (which is exactly what you think it is) is the one item that skeeves her out the most. Dhody also discusses the museum's new exhibit on Civil War medicine, the legality of trading in human body parts, and her favorite items in the Mütter Museum.
Tina Fey won her final Emmy for her wonderful work on NBC's 30 Rock last weekend. On Thursday, Fey stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to plug her forthcoming appearance on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live with musical guests Arcade Fire.
The Upper Darby native discussed her recent, ahem, wardrobe malfunction at the Emmys and her mother's Google alert system before delving into fatherhood advice for Jimmy Fallon. She quotes the scripture of Chris Rock, imploring Fallon to keep his daughter "off the pole."
Also, Fey talks about her own daughter and the French mustache she's trying to grow.
UPDATE: 1:45 p.m.
And he's back! But at least he's no longer tweeting in all-caps.
The morning after Kanye West and JImmy Kimmel's big, bad Twitter fight, Slate published a piece titled, "Kanye West is Right: JImmy Kimmel's Sketch was Ignorant and Stupid."
An angry Kanye took to Twitter to trash Kimmel up and down the Internet.
JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY'S WEDDING— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
There was also a lot of name calling and impressive use of #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK and #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL.
Kimmel addressed the problem by trolling Kanye and telling the world that this isn't a prank. Everyone is a little skeptical of the late night host since he revealed that he was the evil genius behind the viral "Twerk Fail" video.
Either way, I'd suggest keeping an eye on Kanye's Twitter feed until he either mellows out and stops being crazy or, at the very least, learns how to turn his caps lock off.
Kimmel responded to Kanye's rant by discussing the incident during his monologue yesterday.
Then Kanye followed up with the following tweets Friday afternoon:
"Like Kanye said - Finally someone speaks some inspirational and real words that haven't been exposed in a while and JK comes out with this"— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
"It's simple, mediocre dreamers think this is humorous but all Kanye is pretty much saying in the interview is to dream to be the best."— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
"A god". But then he's made out to be ridiculous for wanting to be at an even higher level of self confidence."— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
"Jimmy K. is the EVIL guy trying to keep people in a box and not want more out of themselves. He does this by making fun of real dreamers."— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
"THE NEW ROCKSTARS! ;) No but really please think about what i'm saying."— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
Then West's former manager Irving Azoff, who represents artists like Christina Aguilera, Journey and Van Halen, tweeted this:
Then Kanye West re-tweeted Azoff's tweet:
. @jimmykimmel your low blow comment was uncalled for and shows that you still don’t understand the big time.— Irving Azoff (@irvingazoff) September 27, 2013
Rufus Starlight and Baddy Paris were tasked with toasting their brother on his wedding day.
Instead of getting up in front of the assembled friends and family and blabbering on about how true love is the soul's recognition of its counterpoint in another, the guys decided to wish their brother well the best way they knew how... with an epic, '80s-style music video begging him not to leave them.
Our brother asked us to be his best men for his wedding. We knew the hardest thing would be doing a traditional best man’s speech, because we would cry too much. So instead, we made a music video - a plea not to leave us! Which he did, regardless.
Everyone's least favorite insufferable pop star agreed to be Zach Galifianakis' guest on "Between Two Ferns" and the result was as hilarious as you can imagine. SPOILER ALERT: It ends with Nickelodeon-style slime.
Justin Bieber sat down and let Galifiankis troll the hell out of him for five minutes. They talk about the Anne Frank House fiasco and the whole peeing in a bucket incident. At one point, Galifiankis takes of his belt and spanks his guest because The Biebz had a crappy attitude.
I'm not suggesting that everyone should start beliebing in Justin, or anything, but this isn't the worst PR move the kid's ever had.
Like Carly Rae Jepsen, Mariah Carey, and Robin Thicke before them, the stars of PBS' Sesame Street stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon this week and joined the show's host and The Legendary Roots Crew in a dressing room to play the Sesame Street theme song on classroom instruments.
The Count. Elmo. Cookie Monster. Big Bird. Snuffaluffagus. All the major players are there. Black Thought even busts out a Sesame Street rap verse in the middle and brags about his report card.
Last night on Conan, the It's Always Sunny gang stopped by to plug their 9th season and to give the world a little taste of their 100th episode. Seriously, they've got 100 episodes under their belt now. Ain't bad for a show about a bunch of idiots running a bar in Philly.
In addition to the clip from the show, the guys also discussed with Conan the boundaries of the "gay spectrum" and Charlie Day told a story about the one time Danny DeVito refused to film a scene in tighty-whities and how the gang convinced him to go through with it, anyway. SPOILER ALERT: Charlie Day strips DeVito naked and dresses him in the tighty-whities.
A high school football coach in Utah has suspended his entire team after the school's guidance counselor alerted him to an online bullying incident.
Head Coach Matt Labrum at Utah's Union High School believed his program was going in the wrong direction as players cyberbullied a classmate on Ask.fm. Because the site allows users to remain anonymous, Labrum couldn't be sure which players were responsible. That, combined with a perceived lack of discipline in classes and other arenas away from football, prompted Labrum to suspend all of his players.
“We said, ‘We’ve got to make a change,’” said Labrum, who met with the student who was bullied on Monday to offer an apology. “We were pretty open with (the players) about what we’d heard. We don’t want that represented in our program. … Whoever it is (doing the bullying), we want to help get them back on the right path.”
