Taylor Swift said what about Amy Poehler and Tina Fey? And also, super-cute impressions of Bruno Mars and Nicki Minaj.
I mentioned it briefly earlier this week, but it’s quickly become "a thing" that everyone is weighing in on. Back in January, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — AKA comedy royalty — poked fun at Taylor Swift and her dating record. (See video at left.) In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Taylor’s response to the joke was, "There is a special place in hell for women who don’t support other women." She didn’t outright say Tina and Amy were going to be punished for eternity for that one joke, but then again she kind of did. Whoops.
This week we’re impressed with some superhuman basketball skills, moms dancing, and singing goats. Things keep getting weirder.
NBA player Stephen Curry, of the Golden State Warriors, scored a whopping 54 points against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden this week. According to Mercury News, Curry joined "an elite group" of players who have scored 50 or more points at Madison Square Garden. What's even more impressive is that the night before this performance he put up 38 points against the Indiana Pacers. I’m lucky if I can make one basket, and that’s at Chuck E. Cheese, so I’m majorly impressed.
I wasn’t sure we could top Banana Joe’s cuteness last week, but ladies and gentlemen, it has been done, in the form of sea animal. Also, something cool happened on my favorite show and Google will probably take over the world in a year or two.
Sea otter, basketball star
I’m not going to tell you too much about this magnificent creature, but here's what you can know before going into the video: it's about a sea otter, his name is Eddie. He's really old, he lives at the Oregon Zoo, and he's better at basketball than I am. Now I will let you experience the joy of Eddie's athletic finesse on your own as you watch the video.
Things took a strange turn this week in terms of what’s buzzworthy. The list includes a dog named Banana Joe, Valentine’s Day puns, and a weird dance craze. I blame all the sugar we’re consuming.
A dog with possibly the best name ever was crowned Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York this week. Banana Joe is a tiny black Affenpinscher, who looks a little bit like a miniature Chewbacca. He beat out a Germain pointer, fox terrier, American foxhound, bichon frise, Portuguese water dog, and old English sheepdog to secure his win. I have a tiny dog myself, so I think he’s a cutie!
This week, we’re completely obsessed with Corgis, the return of an NBC cult-favorite, and that third member of Destiny’s Child!
Corgis are definitely among the cutest dog breeds in existence. I mean, those stubby little legs are enough to melt the hearts of anyone. Couple that with how furry and happy they are and you can see why Corgis have been the dog of choice for Queen Elizabeth II. Don’t even get me started about Corgi hybrids — their cuteness is lethal! It's enough to make even the least suspecting individuals end up with a house full of the adorable dogs. The cutest Corgi name generator surfaced on Tuesday to promote a Corgi rescue site. What’s yours? (Click here for a larger view.) I’m Miss Stumpy Fluffybutt, which I am surprisingly okay with.
