Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake sported steeshes in the SNL Digital Short, Dick in a Box. I saw this for the first time in a while last night and it still made me laugh. I don’t know what’s harder to believe – that it’s been around for 6 year and that I still laugh at penis jokes.
Horatio Magellan Crunch is the cartoon mascot more commonly known as Cap’n Crunch for the cereal of the same name. And because I think we can all agree that Cap’n Crunch is the Shakespeare of cereals that cut up the roof of your mouth, it is only appropriate that he follows W.S.’s post from earlier today.
William Shakespeare is perhaps the greatest English playwright there ever was. His work that has survived the 400+ years since his death consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, and two long narrative poems.

Wood Harris played Avon Barksdale on The Wire. Avon is the dominant drug dealer of Baltimore’s West Side where he takes care of the towers and the pit. His second in command is Stringer Bell, who took over for Gerry Bertier when he was paralyzed in a car accident and could no longer provide the muscle needed to keep respect on the street.
UPDATE: I accidentally had a typo in the subject. It said ‘Word Harris’ instead of ‘Wood Harris.’ I don’t blame myself because either is an absurd name for a human being.
Benicio Del Toro had a pretty nice steesh in the movie Savages. He plays a ruthless member of a Mexican drug cartel who has no problem kicking around a severed head like a soccer ball. While Del Toro is good in this role, it’s difficult not to think of the horrible movie The Wolfman whenever I see him.
Thanksgiving is great because people make me food and then I have 4 days off. That’s enough for me. The rest of the weekend I laid around watching things. One of those things was Important Things with Demetri Martin, which was a short-lived but funny show on Comedy Central. You can watch it for free on Netflix if you’ve already paid for Netflix.
