Bye Bye Honey

It's hard to believe that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has made stars out of Mama June and her clan.

It's even harder to believe the things that Mama June does.

Now, TMZ is reporting that TLC has cancelled the show because Mama June is dating a registered sex offender.

The guy was put away ten years ago for child molestation.

And here's the worst part - Mama June was dating the guy when it happened, and she knew his victim too.

Put Some Pittsburgh in Your Mouth - in a Few Days

Primanti Brothers is a legendary sandwich shop in Pittsburgh.

The business started as a vending cart in the 1930s. The founder stuffed all his best ingredients into one sandwich so blue-collar workers could carry everything in one hand.

That was then. Now, Primanti Brothers has announced they’ll be delivering their sandwiches nationwide.

Thanks to a partnership with a new gourmet delivery startup, people can go on-line and order a Primanti’s party pack.

You get a loaf of fresh Italian bread, your choice of pastrami or capicola, provolone, hand-cut French fries, coleslaw, hot sauce, two tomatoes and a Primanti’s T-shirt.

The T-shirt is not edible. At least, I don’t think it is.

Price tag: $109.

No word on the delivery time, but if you order it this morning, you will not have it for lunch today.

Unless you live in Pittsburgh, and then you’re more likely to do pick-up.

Curses, Hydra, Foiled Again!

A trailer for the 2015 film, Avengers: Age of Ultron "leaked" a little early this week.

It was supposed to hit at the beginning of next week - Tuesday, to be precise, during an episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but instead, somehow found its way to the Internet about six days early.

Oops...

 
The folks at Marvel Entertainment took it all in stride, and blamed it all on Hydra.

Hydra's the terrorist organization for which many of the bad guys in the Marvelverse work - so why not?

What Happens in Atlantic City Should Have Stayed in Atlantic City

Tom Bergeron hosted the Miss America Pageant once.

Just once.

He revealed in a recent interview with HuffPostLive that he wasn't asked back because of an "incident."

The "incident" - which wasn't his fault, he says - involved getting a shoulder massage from one of the contestants.

He told her that was a good massage - and she promised a "body massage" if she won.

No big deal - until he told the story on a talk show afterwards.

And just like that, his phone wasn't ringing.

Turns out that HuffPostLive wasn't the first to get the story. Tom told it over a year ago for the Archive of American Television.

Zach, Brad & 2 Ferns

Zach Galifianakis could be the most underrated fake talk-show host since Jiminy Glick.

He’s had some pretty interesting guests on his show, Between Two Ferns, not the least of whom was Barack Obama.

His most recent guest – who looks more like a hostage in this one – is Brad Pitt, there ostensibly to promote his new movie, Fury. Or Furry, if you’re Zach.

Check it out.

Pretty funny stuff.

Enjoy Your Flight to Middle Earth

Air New Zealand gets an A+ for ingenuity with its new air safety video.

It uses characters and actual actors from the Lord of the Rings movies - all filmed in New Zealand - to go through the in-flight safety speech normally done live by flight attendants.

Elijah Wood - Frodo Baggins from all three films - appears in the video and sums it up.

Just before Peter Jackson, the director of the films, wraps it up.

Check it out... It's even better if you're an LOTR fan - or a Hobbit.

And now, Rob Cantor - a singer and songwriter - has penned a tune in tribute to Shia.

Well, not really a tribute.

More an extremely weird and bizarrely funny performance piece - featuring Rob, a couple of choruses, a troupe of dancers and what may be a partial philharmonic orchestra.

Check it out - it's perfect for Halloween.

And make sure you stay until the very end for an unexpected surprise.

Annoying Then, Annoying Now

Yes, I know, it's hard to believe, but Kim Kardashian was just about as annoying 20 years ago as she is now.

Thanks to Entertainment Tonight, we all get to witness just how annoying, on the video they unearthed from ther eighth-grade graduation.

"My name's Kim Kardashian, I'm the dopest on the ropest person in this class," she says on the video. "I'm dope on the rope, and you should learn my vocabulary."

One of her classmates says, "Define 'dope,' Kim."

And she responds, "Kim is dope."

This is one of those times when jokes simply write themselves...
