Their puppet program seems to be much more advanced than their nuclear program. Here are photos of a rather elaborate (and apparently violent) puppet show based on the life of 14th century Persian poet Hafez. Looking forward to Spike Jones' "Being Mahmoud Ahmadinejad."
The one thing everyone can agree on about the Kony2012 campaign is that we all hate the people who claimed they already knew about him.
Nick Offerman has a twitter account. Though it's not verified yet, multiple castmates have confirmed that it's the real deal. Plus, Serena Williams has a pimple on her forehead, Fred Willard does "Who's On First," and plenty of jokes about it being International Women's Day (duh).

Even if it's not strictly related to my topic, I couldn't resist going to "Creating a Sequel to a Game That Doesn't Need One" panel for Portal 2. Valve writers Chet Faliszek and Erik Wolpaw, in the space of 40 minutes, detailed some of the craziness…

The Republican Presidential candidate doesn't shy away from calls to repeal ObamaCare. But in November 2009 at a forum in Philadelphia with his 1994 Senate opponent Harris Wofford, the former Pennsylvania Senator said Republicans made a mistake by not prioritizing health care reform during the time the Republicans held a majority in Congress. The former Senator also tipped his hat to Democrats for initiating reform.

On last night's edition of "Tyra Banks Makes Models Do Weird Stuff," the girls were asked to pose with Kris Jenner as toddlers. Jay Manuel gave the following advice to the women for the shoot: "Think the Kardashians meets the Addams Family." Like I said, it was weird.

Molson is going to start rolling out this caffeine free, 4% alcohol by volume concoction to Canadians come April. Still, better than beer flavored ice tea.

After receiving their dual-starring, the red carpet occasion quickly deteriorated in to Macy laying down by his star, showing some leg, and pretending to be dead. I'd say they handled the occasion exactly right.

CSN Chicago's Chuck Garfien put together this White Sox-centric parody of that very moving commercial that imagined what Chicago would look like if the Cubs won the World Series. The takeaway seems to be "White Sox fans don't have to imagine, so suck it Cubs fans." Ah baseball rivalries. We've missed you this winter.
William Blum at Foreign Policy Journal put together this handy guide to the C.I.A.'s foreign policy efforts since the end of World War II.
Everywhere You Look: The Eerie Correspondences Between Members Of The Wu-Tang Clan And The Characters Of "Full House"

If you've never heard of Patricia Lockwood, click. If you have, read: "I [Twitter] draft like crazy, because: I do most of my tweeting with my phone, and it is so so different to write with your thumbs. Have you noticed this? I often enter Thumb Fantasias where I just move my thumbs around for ten minutes, fifteen minutes, twenty minutes, rearranging elements of joke and text and scenario with my stupid thumbs. It is a part of you that should never be writing."

The phones are too damn big. Will this mad race for a bigger screen ever stop? Here, a doomsday theory.

Presented without comment. (I honestly hate myself for posting this.)
As we all know, limited edition designer collaborations with mass retailers tend to launch with a bang–and not always in a good way. There are often long lines, pushing, shoving, fighting, disorganization and crazy people trying to buy the entire in…
