Egg on Your Faces!

So again, the folks at The Tonight Show sat around a production meeting, and came up with a game plan.

"Let's have Jimmy and a guest play Russian Rouelette, but with eggs!

So, they grabbed a carton of eggs. Hardboiled eight, left four raw.

The idea: Jimmy and his guest will smash those eggs against their own foreheads until someone has smashed two raw eggs.

But who to get?

"I know! Let's get Bradley Cooper! He'll do it!"

And they did. And he did. And it's done. And it's hilarious.

Check it out!

Something's Amiss in the Sullivan Theater

Bill Mendez, a long-time cue card guy on The Late Show with David Letterman, lost his job recently.

According to the reports, he got into an argument with one of the show's writers over the cue cards. The fight allegedly ended with Mendez grabbing the writer by the front of his shirt and pinning him to a nearby wll.

So that's it - the cue card man has been fired.

If you've got cue card experience and don't mind a short-term position, be sure to send in your application.

Letterman is retiring in April.

Maybe it would be better to apply with Stephen Colbert...

She Ain't Heavy, She Also Ain't My Brother

The head of the Russian Tennis Federation has been fined $25,000 for referring to Venus and Serena Williams as "the Williams brothers."

He's also been suspended for a year after his comments on a talk show on Russian TV.

Funny how the world works.

This guy's got to pay a hefty fine and lose his job for a bit for saying that same things that earn guys like Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien and Jon Stewart millions.

Now That's a Good Start

If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you undoubtedly remember Khal Drogo, the Dothraki war lord who dominates and is then dominated by Daenerys Targaryen.

He was about as intense as they come - dark, brooding, completely the opposite of Daenerys.

Until his appearances on GOT as Drogo, Jason Momoa was a relative unknown.

Now, thanks to GOT, he's getting all sorts of opportunities - not the least of which is he recent casting as Aquaman in an upcoming DC Comics film.

His GOT audition tape has been making the rounds lately. He landed the role after performing a fierce Maori dance.

After watching the tape, I can't imagine ANYONE saying no to this guy. Ever.

It's Not Shoplifting - It's Scoring an Endorsement!


Last week, Joseph Randle, a running back for the Dallas Cowboys, was arrested for shoplifting at Dallas-area mall.

He allegedly walked off with underwear and cologne. He's facing legal action, and the NFL hit him with a fine of $29,500.

Not to worry. A marketing company in Los Angeles just signed Randel to a contract to help them market underwear.

The company - MeUndies - will pay Sticky Fingers at least enough to cover the fine from the league.

I guess there will be a separate cologne deal to cover the court costs.

Yeah, this is a great example for kids everywhere.

Party at My Mom's House!

Actor Paul Rudd is a big fan of the Kansas City Royals. He spent the latter part of his childhood in Kansas, even studying at the University of Kansas.

So the other night, when the Royals won the American League Championship Series and earned their way into the World Series - on the strength of eigh consecutive playoff wins, no less! - Paul was there.

A local reporter caught up with him afterwards, and for whatever reason, the reporter let Paul ramble on about his activities as a fan this season.

And then, Paul invited the world to party at his mom's house.

Why not? I mean, he's a movie star, he can afford a few kegs, right?

Imagine what he's going to have to do if the Royals win the World Series...

"There Should Be No Fan"

This is one of the most insane things you're likely to see this campaign season.

On Wednesday, there was a debate scheduled between Florida's incumbent Republican governor, Rick Scott, and his challenger, former Democratic governor Charlie Crist.

Charlie placed a small electric fan under his podium to cool him off.

The rules of the debate said "there should be no fan." And because there was a fan, Rick refused to come out.

Yes.

That's what happened. The incumbent finally came out, but minutes later, after leaving the moderators of the debate twisting in the wind, trying to decide what to do.

Very awkward and extremely insane. Check it out.

Panic Much?

The Ebola virus is scary. No doubt about it.

And things are pretty rough in western Africa. That's for certain.

And there are cases of Ebola here in the US. But some of the stories we're hearing are - what's a good word? - sensationalized?

That's the tack taken by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.

He pretty much skewers media coverage of the Ebola "crisis." Check it out.

Did They Put a Ring On It?

Rumors are flying that Lady Gaga and her Chicago Fire boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, are prepared to tie the knot.

Of course, neither of them is confirming that, so the tabloidetectives are piecing things together.
  1. It started a couple of weeks ago when actress Sophia Bush guested on Chicago Fire and posted a picture to Instagram that shows Taylor wearing a ring – that she says is not a prop for the show.
  2. Then The Daily Star reported that the two of them had a small family ceremony where they pledged their devotion to one another.
  3. And the famous "unnamed sources" say that Gaga and her boy plan to get married next year.
Et voila! Lady Gaga's engaged!

Right?
