A Cease And Desist on Unicorn Meat?! Someone's Been Reading MamaPop

Unicorns  You all know how we feel about unicorns here at MamaPop. We love them. The sparklier, the better. So when ThinkGeek came up with "Canned Unicorn Meat" this writer was torn. I mean, hee, but...Well now they've been served a cease and desist letter.

Ralph Macchio is Waxing On in New Viral Video

Ralph-Macchio-Karate-Kid Have you seen the new The Karate Kid with Jaden Smith? I haven't. I've heard it's good, but to me Ralph 'Babyface' Macchio will always be THE Karate Kid. I love my 80s icons, that's why I was so happy to see that one of latest Funny or Die videos stars my former teen heart-throb in Wax On, F*ck Off.

The Jersey Shore's, "The Situation", Raps. The World Weeps.

Mike-the-situation Everybody slowly get up from your seats. Do not panic. Form a single file line and head for the exit. Please remain calm. Women and children first. This is essential for our survival.

Les Grossman and The MTV Movie Awards

Les-Grossman Remember Les Grossman?  The best part of Tropic Thunder?  He's hawking the MTV Movie Awards.  Brilliantly, I might add.

The Bad Moms Club Claims To Know What's Cuter than RDJ

Iron-man-robert-downey-jrIt’s really REALLY hard for me to admit that anything is cuter than Robert Downey Jr. Really. But still. Everyone needs an uncle like this little girl because making a video like this, starring your niece, makes this uncle the COOLEST UNCLE EV-AH.

Behold: Iron Baby!

Frat Party Is a Thing to Behold

Frat-party-movieSo, I know that I wrote awhile back that I had discovered the worst movie ever made in New York City Serenade, but I'm going to have to recant that claim for a new and obvious successor: Frat Party.


Librarians Do Gaga Redux

And The Funniest Person Alive Is...Tina Fey!

Tina-Fey If you thought the crown should go to Betty White, what with all the Betty White love-o-palooza happening these days, you'd be wrong.  Tina Fey, ladies and gentlemen.  Tina Fey.  Yeah, suck it, nerds.

Louis CK to Star in New Series on FX!

Louis-ck Awesome and foul-mouthed comedian Louis CK, who I once frightened by telling him that he was the male version of me*, will be starring in a new series, Louie, on FX starting June 29.

A Double Serving of Serving Done Right!

PattonoswaltPlagiarism is infuriating, especially for writers who spend hour upon hour honing each word, each sentence, to fit just so.  It makes sense, but it turns out it's equally as infuriating for comedians who have been plagiarized, as the recent Patton Oswalt incident illustrates.  And because Oswalt is a comedian and hilarious even when he's not on stage, he calls out his hacker publicly and with a lesson to the young plagiarist: if you're not funny to begin with, stealing won't help.

Comedy Central Censors South Park Because Of Death Threats From Nerds Posing As Muslims

Trey-Parker_Matt-Stone South Park has a long history of insulting religions because religious people are funny when they're mad. If religious people weren't so funny when they get all frothy and sputtery, South Park wouldn't make fun of them. But that's just not going to happen. For example, South Park pissed off some Muslims who want the creators dead. Like, dead dead. Because of a fucking cartoon. Yay monotheism!

Betty White To Host SNL Commemorating The First Time I'll Watch It In Years


On May 8th, Saturday Night Live is bringing in the youngest and hottest to support their current cast, Betty White. (I love Betty White.) I'm pretty sure one of the current cast's name is... Karen? No, Steve. Steve something.  Jack Tripper?  I don't know. I could get lost in not looking it up and guessing. My point is, thank you for finally piquing my interest in what you're doing now.  I didn't even know it was still on TV.

Best... What? Five Dubious Best Picture Winners of Years Past

Shakespeare_in_LoveIn the wake of this week's massively fun MamaPop thread throwdown of this week's massively unfun Academy Awards ceremony, we find ourselves looking at the awards that were... uh... awarded, and wondering if the passage of time and evolution of perspective will justify the choices that were made — or leave us pondering the time-honored question: what the hell were they thinking? As we know, the Academy is fully capable of delivering some lame-ass awards... and while we're making no accusations as such of The Hurt Locker (mostly because I haven't actually seen it yet), let's hope that five or ten years from now we're not wincing when we mention it in the same breath with the following:

Tim And Eric Awesome Show Great Job! Season Cinco

Te_heads I have decided to take a break from my usual American Idol Recap this week.
