Most Ridiculous Man of the Year

Here's a late-comer for the Most Ridiculous Man of the Year award.

A professional makeup artist in Manchester, England has reportedly spent about $150,000 for plastic surgery and more to look like his favorite reality TV star.

The star?

Kim Kardashian.

He's had lip fillers, laser hair removal and eyebrows tatooed on.

Take a look at the picture to see the results. And no, it is NOT Halloween. And he doesn't care what he looks like, according to The Sun, London's daily newspaper. "My look is all about the shock factor. I love all the attention and stares I get in the street. I welcome the hate — it just means more attention. And if anything, it just spurs me on to get more work done."

Good money chasing bad, folks. Especially since the guy looks more like the Octomom than the NorthWestmom.

Happy Holidays: Sheriff Santa

There's a guy in Missouri who gives away about $100,000 a year in $100 bills to random strangers.

This holiday season, he got a little bit of help - from the Jackson County Sheriff's Department in Kansas City.

The officers were handed a small pile of Benjamin Franklins and sent out on the street to help those who needed help.

What a terrific, feel-good story...

It's the Most Wonderful Prank of the Year

Jimmy Kimmel and his wife have a holiday tradition - well, sort of a tradition - with acting couple John Krasinski (from The Office) and Emily Blunt (most recently from Into The Woods).

They live across the street from one another, and for Christmas, they play pranks on each other.

This has been going on for a couple of years, and each year, the pranks get bigger and more out of control.

Watch the clip to see what Jimmy did to them last year - the thing he thought would bring the prank-feud to a conclusion.

And then watch to see watch Emily and John did to raise the bar considerably higher this year.

Nice to have that kind of money to throw away, but it is sort of fun to watch.

Please Define "Top"

Scratching my head just a little.

US Magazine put out a list yesterday of the Top 14 Celebrity Instagram Photos of 2014.

Six of the 14 involve the Kardashians in some way - by that calculation, they're taking up 43% of the internet, which sounds right and wrong all at the same time.

The rest of the list:
  • Jessica Simpson in a bathing suit holding a golf club
  • Macauley Culkin wearing a T-shirt with Ryan Gosling on it
  • Jessa Duggar's wedding kiss
  • Taylor Swift's 4th of July party
  • Nick & Vanessa Lachey's pregnancy announcement
  • Lauren Conrad's haircut
  • Bethenny Frankel wearing her 4-year-old's Hello Kitty PJs
The only one that really belongs - or at least makes some sense in being relevant - is the post Diem Brown's boyfriend put up after her passing, expressing his grief.

"Governor, This Is Barack Obama..."

What a fun moment.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick made his final appearance on Boston Public Radio yesterday, and got a very interesting phone call as part of his farewell.

President Barack Obama called in, identifying himself as a former resident of Somerville, a suburb of Boston.

The president spent some time in the state while a student at Harvard, and he's got a good relationship with the outgoing governor.

So why not call in?

Watch the video of the call. Seems legit to me.

Wrapping Up a Holiday Tradition

Darlene Love came to fame with the 1960s classic, "He's a Rebel."

But for close the three decades now, she's earned even more fame from her annual appearance on David Letterman's last show before Christmas to sing "Christmas" - aka "Baby Please Come Home."

She'll sing it one last time tonight, on Letterman's final show-before-Christmas. This time next year, Stephen Colbert will be sitting in Letterman's seat.

To get everyone in the mood, the folks at CBS put together a compilation of Darlene's appearances, blending them all together in one pretty spectacular rendition.

Enjoy - and be sure to set your DVR for tonight's performance...

Cancel The Interview, Please

Sony Pictures announced formally today that it will not now and maybe ever release the movie they'd scheduled for a Christmas debut, The Interview.

The film, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco as some newsmen recruited by the CIA to assassinate the leader of North Korea, drew the ire of North Korea's current ruler, who said its release would be considered an act of war.

More recently, someone hacked into Sony's servers, releasing sensitive information and threatening some drastic action if the film were released as planned.

Some interesting folks are not happy at all. Like Donald Trump... And Salman Rushdie... But, here's the question that everyone wants answered...

I Really Really Really Really Really Really Want This!

Dear Santa:

I know this is probably an impractical present, and that it will probably only survive one light dusting.

But Santa, I really really really really really really really want one of these.

A remote-control pickup with a snow plow attachment.

I've been really really really really good this year too.

Signed,

Your Pal Mikey!

Shaking Off Hanukkah

Someone pointed out recently that there aren't any good Hanukkah songs out there.

It seems that the only choice is Adam Sandler's "Hanukkah Song," and that's not really about the holiday, just about folks who might celebrate it.

So along comes Six13, a Jewish a cappella group, and their parody of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off."

You'll have fun, learn a little bit about the holiday, and even how to play with a dreidel.

And you might start bopping along with the tune. Win win!

A Box of Poo for You

You know Cards Against Humanity, right?

The makers refer to it as "a party game for horrible people" that's "as despicable and awkward as you and your friends."

On Black Friday, they made an interesting offer to folks on their website: a box of male bovine excrement for a mere $6.

They used a more guttural expression that we really shouldn't be using here...

Now, the folks at CAH report that they sold 30,000 units.

30,000 units of genuine bull crap, amounting to $180,000.

I can only imagine how popular these will be at the office Yankee Swap this year.

Now if you'll excuse me. My dog just went outside, and I'm pretty sure there's a gold mine waiting to be picked up on my lawn.
