  1. In the 90’s the Agriculture Minister in the UK, John Selwyn-Gummer actually proved beef is safe to eat during the Mad Cow disease business, by feeding meat to his daughter and Michael Powell has a building named after him at my university in Canterbury which I work in during my course.

  2. I would have been uncomfortable with Kelsy Grammer’s impersonation if he didn’t produce the show “Girlfriends”. So I’ll let him have this one.

  3. Funny or Die Presents has a lot of chaff to separate from the wheat. Some of the stand-outs are Father and Son, The Terrys, Sticky Minds, Paco Dances and Songs for our Dogs. The rest is middling to just ok.

  4. Man… I fucking HATED Shutter Island. The “fake” story involving Patricia Clarkson in the cave was so much more interesting than the real story, which was that the whole thing was fake and these people going to ridiculous lengths to prove to DiCaprio that he was a metal case. I remember kinda liking the music score, but that’s it.

  5. Oh man, Glory. We watched it for a week in 8th grade back in ’97. Near the end of the movie all us girls were crying, glitter eyeshadow running down our faces. Matthew Broderick hot as hell in the movie though.

    The giant RV Homer wanted in that episode of Simpsons absolutely terrified me as a kid.

    I only know Holy Smoke from the old Rosie O’Donnel talk show, where she mentioned seeing it and missing the scene where she loses her mind and begins walking outisde naked and peeing at the same time?

    I remember Daily Show ripped Who Wants to Marry a Millionare for the longest time:—7-brides-for-7-figures

    If anybody has the resources, the Kirk Douglas episode of SNL from 1980 is adorable. Especially the sketch where he was a dentist the shrunk into the patient’s mouth.
