The Cooler: this week in…

30 Nov

(All news bites are provided humor-free due to your favorite blogger B drowning his funny bone in Vegas booze over the holiday. Whoops. Sorry.)


THE TUBE: An update on the new show from “The Office” producers: Rashida Jones joins the cast, along with Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari. Said Ken Tremendous/Michael Schur:

“She is perfect for this new show, which — just to remind everyone — is not a spinoff of ‘The Office. It is a spinoff of ‘MASH’ called ‘Seinfeld II.'”


CLASSY AMERICANS: In case you missed it, we’ve had our first Black Friday death. It’s like our country’s very own Running of the Bulls, only somehow even dumber.


FIELD OF DREAMS, VEGETABLE-STYLE: If you harvest, they will come. (Great reminder how shitty the economy has gotten.)


STORYTELLING: I beg you to watch this video from the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. You don’t need to have seen the show; you don’t need to have seen any show, ever. Just check it out. It’s not every day you discover the most hatable reality show person ever.


KARMIC PAYBACK: From reader A.B.: “it finally happened!”


TUNES: The Hopefuls have a new song streaming on MySpace, and a new record out mid-December. Stay tuned for more news.


DRUNKEN ANTICS: Oh good god. It’s times like this I wish I still knew how to make a joke. Thankfully, there are plenty of them in the comments (though my favorite is actually the first one.)

    Had you followed my advice of taking your bankroll and betting the over on Colorado/Nebraska, you could afford to pay someone to make your jokes for you.

    Wait, I finally found the joke: “At least the woman had the common decency to use a bathroom stall. The Gophers took it from behind on national television.” Ha?

    PS – Stu, my two pals and I all bet the “over” in your honor. Thanks for the bucks!

    That’ll work.

    The vig on the gambling advice is one (1) beer at some point in the future. (Although “bet the over on a Big 12 game” this year is akin to “wear a condom whilst frolicking with Paris Hilton.” Simple common sense, really.)
