SPRINGFIELD: Not that Springfield. This Springfield. PHELPS FEVER: The only clip that's really worth watching is here. GUITAR ZERO: His parents should be put in jail. DEAD MAN STANDING: So sweet...or gross. You decide.

Nobody Works Anymore...Seriously, Everybody's Been Laid Off

I don't know about those folks on Wall Street, but down here on Main Street things are awful tough. I can't even afford a new pair of blue jeans, and you have no idea how bad I want one now. Hell, these women have to steal just to buy shirts. Things are so bad, even the elderly have been reduced to stealing. To make things worse, a friend showed me this video to cheer me up, but it's had nightmares ...   More

Nobody Works Anymore: OMG, Jesus is Inside A VP-2-B!

SARAH SINGS: It's pretty easy to pick on Sarah Bin Laden...oops,I mean Palin. The woman is a treasure trove of material. Especially when she sings. Yes, sings! Here's the Fey-looker singing (and dancing) with the Wassila Singers. The Pop-Up video bits are genius. Oh, yeah. And The New Yorker has a nice piece here, too.

Nobody Works Anymore:The WORST Emmys EVER!

Did anybody watch the Emmys last night? What the hell was that? If you missed it, the show was emceed by the five nominees for Best Reality Show Host: Jeff Probst, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Ryan Seacrest and Tom Bergeron.
