Anyone else think this might really be a very unfortunate result of their sun bleaching and paint splattering a college t-shirt to make it seem more "authentic"? (I've never got the whole pre-faded, pre-ripped jean BS, but it is popular.) Or is the consensus that this really is a very stupid publicity stunt with a… » 9/15/14 3:08pm Monday 3:08pm

If she's been on the same program since 2003, she can't be that young. I had NO idea NCIS had been on air so long. Or that it featured a reoccurring farting hippo puppet.

Brin is the health nut/workout douche who wears his "performance gear" 24/7, Brin is the stereotypical Silicon Valley type in his Steve Jobs-approved jeans and black t-shirt and… » 8/01/14 5:07pm 8/01/14 5:07pm

A few months ago Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me did a bit where they seemed to imply Jennifer Anniston was a jokey wash up who no one had ever heard from since Friends ended over a decade ago. Now, I know NPR isn't the hight of pop culture awareness, but geeze... Should a show that features Paula Poundstone on a regular… » 8/01/14 7:53am 8/01/14 7:53am
