Lots of fun things on Twitter today: Rainn Wilson apologizes for his rape joke, Bryan Cranston's new hair, Emmy Rossum must live in a recording studio, a chihuahua who REALLY loves Chris Colfer, and Dr. Ruth's tips on what to give up for lent (hint: not sex). Oh, and get ready to see Weird Al on an upcoming episode of "30 Rock!"
Kevin Kline is always awesome, but the real news is that Mike Myers is hilarious in this. I know. I had forgotten he could be too, but it's the truth. The man can still deliver.
These totally real, and absolutely not at all made up quotes* from Joe Biden show how cool a guy our VP is. But yeah, totally real. Absolutely legitimately real…
A joke played by Romney's son Matt in 2008. The Michigan primary was seen as a do-or-die for Romney. Naturally, Matt just wanted to help him relieve some stress.
Seriously kids, wrap it up. It's all fun and games until someone gets syphilis.
The jig is up, pooch! I hope his owners have a lot of silver.
One poll, two headlines.
Rick Santorum has deflected recent criticism of comparing Obama to Hitler via the use of a metaphor comparing stopping the President to World War II by telling CBS "the World War II metaphor is one I've used 100 times in my career." Indeed, a 2010 speech at the Louisville Right to Life banquet unearthed by BuzzFeed shows that the former Senator has used the comparison before.
Now this is the whacked out high fashion we've all come to expect. It's like Dr. Seuss and Raggedy Ann took LSD and made a baby.
Sometimes, the best defense is letting your opponent kick their own ass.
Who knew obituaries were such a popular, posthumous variation of the middle finger? And just to twist the knife, this runs every year in the Honolulu newspaper on the anniversary of Bill's death. His children and grandchildren don't seem very fond of Mrs. Willard (Bill) Wannall.
Psssst, Drew, you gotta put that stuff in your purse if you don't want the paparazzi to see it. Plus, Worf don't get no respect and gas prices are set to hit five dollars a gallon. These and other Buzz we missed await your clicking pleasure.
And his name is Griffin Kiritsy? Things just keep on getting better and better.
Too bad the Vision Street Wear burqa is out of production.
Dan Harmon, the show's creator and head writer, just tweeted it. You better watch.
Regardless of your politics, you have to admit this is a meticulous piece of work. Yup. This is Rick Santorum's face constructed with hundreds of stills of gay porn (and maybe some straight porn, but it's hard to tell). Goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway: NSFW.
Because even in times of war, man needs man's best friend.
Rick Santorum, when discussing Obama, said the problem is with the very idea of liberal Christianity.
"Aye, aye!" you say. Trust him. He'll steer you great places, always.
The comic joins The Roots, Ben Folds, and Ingrid Michaelson for an fundraiser at ABC Carpet in Manhattan, according to this invitation provided by an Obama backer. On March 1, $35,800 will get you a handshake with the president.
Mob Wives' Big Ang is on the cover of the latest issue Next Magazine, dressed as Marilyn Monroe. MAKE IT STOP! Sure, there have been times where an homage to the deceased star has worked, but more often than not, it reeeally doesn't. Here are the 10 worst offenders.
Well it's you girl, and you should know it. But no, seriously, what is going on with this woman's mouth?
MSNBC, Saturday Night Live, and local news outlets were happy to spell out the explicit details surrounding Virginia Republicans' quite literally invasive anti-abortion bill for their viewers. Will the CNN, Fox News and the major networks follow suit after yesterday's effective silent protest in Richmond?
"our fearless sidekick. this fish has cheated death more times than i can remember," Craig Romney wrote on his 2009 road trip blog. Andrew Sullivan has many questions: "Did it eventually travel inside the truck? Did they strap it to the roof and have it constantly sprayed with water? Did they just suspend it from the bumper, Clark Griswold style, because it enjoyed the view?"
Here's a picture of Bret Michaels and a sloth named Harry.
President of Ave Maria University says that even the administration's recent olive branch to religious organizations isn't enough. Opposes covering any and all forms of birth control.
At lot of people have been asking me about BuzzFeed's lack of coverage on Courtney Cox drinking condiments. "Dave," they bemoan, "what is up with BuzzFeed's complete lack of Courtney Cox drinking things like mustard and barbeque sauce?" Well, I'm pleased to report that this will no longer be the case. Not on my watch. Enjoy, and God bless.
The new series written by rising star Lena Dunham and produced by funny man Judd Apatow follows a group of twenty-something girls trying to survive in the Big Apple. It premieres this April on HBO. Will you be watching?
It's almost too easy at this point.
To most Americans, Barack Obama seemed to appear out of nowhere, fully-formed, in 2008. This rarely-seen footage from 1991-2004 captures lesser-known moments in the future president's life -- as law student, community organizer, local politician, failed Congressional candidate, and Democratic nominee for Senate -- and offers a glimpse into his political and personal roots.
I can't seem to put my finger on it, though. Also, it's okay to laugh. This guy burned a whole lot of stuff.
In their younger, hotter days.

Some Homophobic Lawmaker From Indiana Sent This Letter About The Girl Scouts To His Republican Colleagues
Rep. Bob Morris from Fort Wayne, Indiana is refusing to celebrate the Girl Scouts 100th anniversary and sent this letter to his colleagues in Congress explaining why. Apparently this letter was intended only for his fellow Republicans, but was somehow leaked to the media. Oops.
He's spending $50,000 to air this blast on Michigan cable, a Republican source says. The libertarian can't win, but he can help Mitt Romney.
Hope those windows are strong!!
Rick Santorum often deflects criticism of the 2008 primary endorsement he gave to Mitt Romney by saying he was for anyone-but-McCain. But in the 2008 after McCain had clinched the nomination Santorum seemed to hold no ill will toward the Arizona Senator. Santorum actively campaigned for McCain, touting him as a "reformer," and someone who would "shake up Washington."
The drop-dead gorgeous "Mad Men" star spoke to The Mirror about her horrifying teenage years -- a time when she fancied herself "a bit of a goth," dyed her hair every color of the rainbow, and her fellow students would spit on her for it. RUDE!
And he does so in his first game in a New York Knicks jersey. Welcome to New York, Baron. Pro tip: If someone in Washington Square offers to sell you pot, just say no. That person is either a cop or selling really bad weed.
This guy proves Newt Gingrich's jabs at electric cars wrong. Probably wouldn't have hit his head on a pickup though.
David Foster Wallace, author of "Infinite Jest," would have turned 50 today. To celebrate his birthday, here's the letter he wrote to the Amherst College newspaper in response to a jerk who thought it was an unalienable right to blast AC/DC as loud as humanly possible.
Democrats are attacking the former Massachusetts Governor for the amount of federal subsidies the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics received. In a February 2000 speech to the National Press Club, Romney said the Olympics were worth the "massive investment for which they cost." The "hundreds of billions dollars" spent on the Games, Romney said, was necessary to "demonstrate peace to the world."
The Becket Fund for Religious LIberty has filed suit on behalf of Ave Maria University against the Obama Administration's requirement that employers cover birth control. The fight over contraception is now moving into the courts.
Why, I oughta...!!! Spotted in Brooklyn, specifically the Park Slope neighborhood.
As she discussed her character's cruel ways on "Smash," Anjelica Huston had her own bitch move up her sleeve: tossing water into Jimmy Fallon's face. On his own couch, no less!
The mid-market British tabloid is the Internet's biggest newspaper. The gap grew to 3.7 million uniques in January; Clarke hopes it will stop the Gray Lady's "whining."
Move along, nothing to see here. Unless you like awesome street art and candy and dragons, in which case you should definitely watch this.
Santorum's sweater vest is the easiest point of entry for his detractors, as well as his supporters.
The whole Romney family are social media naturals — so why can't they connect? Is it all one big Mormon mommy blog?
Notoriously, the candidate didn't stop to let his kids go to the bathroom. But will there be a dog on the roof?
Because they "promote homosexual lifestyles."
So, it happened. Rihanna and Chris Brown just released two new versions of their songs together. Here's "Birthday Cake" and "Turn Up The Music." Judging from the lyrics they might be back together.
The Chewbaccalypse was nigh this weekend. Here are photos of the sci-fi and Star Wars-themed New Orleans collective known as Chewbacchus as they rang in Mardi Gras.
