Funeral Director: Before you go, I was just wondering… would you be interested in some extras for the loved one?
Next Of Kin: What kind of extras?
Funeral Director: Well, how about a casket?
That routine, a classic example of what was known in the early 60’s as “sick humor”, was nevertheless ubiquitous across mainstream variety shows like Ed Sullivan and Jack Paar. It also popularized the notion of a new boutique industry, the vanity funeral. The novelist Evelyn Waugh, decidedly less mainstream, documented the beginning of that phenomenon over a decade earlier with The Loved One, »

Before you go rushing to conclusions that Aaron Hernandez is going to get out of jail, start working out, and join the Patriots again, let’s just put those images to bed, and quick.

Emma Watson is the marquee star of Beauty and the Beast, but she's not the only big name in the cast. While you do see them at the beginning and (spoiler alert) at the end of the film, the staff members at the Beast's mansion are swiftly turned into household objects.

The time has arrived: the 89th Academy Awards will occur tomorrow, February 26, and we’ll finally know which films and which stars will take home those coveted statues. This is one of the most talked-about events on TV each year but, while everyone is excited for the spectacle and excitement of it all, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t garner critics.

In delightful news to provide an escape from the real world, here is a bird that sounds like just Rihanna.
You may think I am exaggerating, but I am not. Chances are this bird can sing better than you, and you will need to accept that as fact. I wouldn’t be surprised if this bird got a three-album contract, that’s what we are dealing with.

When Jimmy Kimmel Live! launched in 2003, George W. Bush was still in his first term as president.

"Who the hell knows what's going to be going on that weekend?" he says in regards to his awards-show preparation. "I could be something that »
The 69-year-old singer paid tribute to his late friend -- who died on Christmas Day 2016 -- on his Beats 1 radio show, Rocket Hour, with a series of Michael's classic songs following a heartfelt memorial.
"Not only was he a good friend, but he was probably one of the most brilliant songwriters this country has ever produced, and certainly one of the best vocalists ever ... one of the best in the world," John remembered, noting that Michael's gift of song never ceased to amaze him.
"I remember sitting in the car just off of Hyde Park, listening to a cassette of 'Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,'" the singer continued. "I said, 'George, that's the nearest record I've heard to a Motown record for years and years."
Of course, musicality isn't the only thing Michael was known for.[p »

Everybody’s gotta eat.
Which is why it’s super frustrating when you accidently kill your paycheck with what you thought was a casual grocery run… you know, just to pick up those few things to get you through the rest of the week.
