The mystery of who dropped $7,000 for Russell Crowe’s leather Cinderella Man jockstrap at auction has been solved. But before you go thinking John Oliver is some kind of weirdo who really wanted Russell Crowe’s jockstrap for a “personal” collection, it’s not like that. It will soon be making its way to one of the last remaining Blockbuster stores in Alaska.
My favorite feud happening right now is one between John Oliver, living Postman Pat character and host of HBO’s Last Week Tonight, and Vice President Mike Pence. The feud is over two different children’s books about Mike Pence’s bunny Marlon Bundo. John Oliver is an expert in high-level trolling, so of course he’s winning.
One of the recurring things said during this late-in-2017 Sexual Misconduct Creepocalypse we’re experiencing has been that it’s an issue men need to address. Last night, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver moderated a 20th anniversary screening event for Wag the Dog in NYC. So John, a man, decided to address the recent allegations of sexual harassment against Dustin Hoffman. Except that’s not a conversation that Dustin wanted to have with an audience full of people.
Disney’s latest live-action MWTPTBG (mess with the potential to be good), The Lion King, is coming together and yesterday, Disney tweeted a picture of the confirmed cast. For a company like Disney, that is a very low-budget community theater-looking cast sheet. Not to mention how confusing it must have been when the real star Beyonce saw it. “Can someone explain why both my picture and name are the same size as everyone else? Oh wait, is this like a Destiny’s Child thing, where I pretend I’m part of a group? Ok, gotcha (wink).”
I like to imagine that’s the same position Jon Hamm has to be in when he takes a dick pic. You have to hold it upright if you want the panorama mode on your camera to capture all the angles properly.
Edward Snowden, a dude who my dumb ass always mistakes for a secondary character from The Office that doesn’t exist (is he Meredith’s son? Or one of Scott’s Tots?), recently met with John Oliver in Russia for an interview for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. If you’re anything like me and you only watch the panda-fucking parts of the news, then you know that the story of Edward Snowden leaking a bunch of NSA documents is confusing as hell. Thankfully, John Oliver was able to put it all into perspective by asking whether or not the NSA have seen pictures America’s dick pics. According to Edward Snowden, yes they have! (the dick talk starts around the 25:00 mark):
When asked by John Oliver if people should stop sending pictures of their junk to each other until all this NSA business gets sorted out, Edward Snowden replied:
“No. You shouldn’t change your behavior because a government agency somewhere is doing the wrong thing. If we sacrifice our values because we’re afraid, we don’t care about those values very much.”
That’s right! Set off some fireworks, shave your downstairs hair into the shape of a bald eagle, turn the “America Fuck Yeah!” up to 11 and ask one of the heads on Mt. Rushmore to hold the camera steady while you try to snap a pic of your wet bits. It’s what Lady Liberty would want! Yes, I just pictured Uncle Sam sending the Statue of Liberty a grainy red, white, and blue jpg with the message “I WANT YOU…to check out this 6″ flag pole. u like?” I know, I have NO respect for history.
