America, which celebrates getting ahead by any means necessary, is demonizing A-Rod and Johnny Manziel, 2 men who have tried to get ahead by any means necessary.
Putin is like Kim Jong-Il except he’s actually a threat to world peace.

playingtouching keys on the piano and singing Blueberry Hill while Kevin Costner and other Hollywood stars clap along in the audience.
I don’t know why I’ve never seen this before, but now that I’ve seen it, I’m mesmerized and can’t stop watching it. There is just so much unintentional comedy that it becomes so intentionally comedic that it ends up being unintentionally funny again. If you don’t think that makes sense, watch it a few times.
Anyone who doubts Putin’s power should watch this video a few times or Google image search “Putin stunt” because this is absolute proof that there is nobody in Russia who can tell Vladimir Putin, “No, I don’t think you should sing Blueberry Hill in English”, or “How about you don’t dress in a marshmallow suit and fly a motorized glider to show cranes how to migrate properly”, or “Maybe you should put a shirt on when you’re riding a horse”.

I currently live in Lynchburg, home to Liberty University and Jerry Falwell. As a liberal atheist, it’s not exactly my first choice of hometowns. It could’ve been worse, however. I used to live both here: http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archives/2011/10/27/what-does-it-take-to-get-expelled-from-union-scioto-high-school and here: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33332436/ns/us_news-race_and_ethnicity/?gt1=43001. Lynchburg doesn’t seem so bad in comparison.
I’d like to see him do another travel book. I’d love to read his thoughts on Asia.
See, I really enjoy Bill Bryson. You can always give his books as successful presents to various age groups, and he’s on that twee-but-now-you-know-about-cotton-production continuum.
But, just about the time ‘At Home’ came out, he officially became that Family Guy skit where Stephen King is at…
"Nursing" a doll when I was about 3 or 4. I put nursing in quotes because very few 3 or 4 year old boys lactate.
I hereby resolve to only refer to him as “the late Jesus.”
This submission is about the late Jesus.
My favorite appearance: the guy from Milli Vanilli. Finally back in his comfort zone: lip-synching to someone else’s music.
Welp, if this isn’t proof Paul McCartney has been dead this whole time, I don’t know what else you need.
I could describe this video as “Malcolm Jamal Warner, Ricki Lake and Peter Falk join other stars of stage and screen in singing ‘Let It Be,’” and that only describes 1/20th of its weirdness.
