Happy Mardi Gras, Internet!

  • Get revved up for a night of eating, drinking, and debauchery by watching 49 of the most popular Harlem Shake videos all at once.


  • Pope Eggs Benedict is the first Pope to call it quits in over 600 years, and he’s also the first Pope to have an official MySpace playlist with Tupac and Fleet Foxes on it. (This is not a joke.)


  • It’s Fat Tuesday, so EAT YOUR HEARTS OUT – starting with these colorful Mardi Gras cupcakes with cinnamon frosting.


  • Or try whipin’ up this super-sweet lemony interpretation of the ruling monarch of baked goods, KING CAKE
  • You may want to exclude Burger King in your all-day eating extravaganza, since they just admitted to USING HORSE MEAT in their food.
  • On a significantly less disgusting note, Bill Murray proved he’s still the coolest living human at the Pebble Beach Golf Tournament last weekend.billmurray1
  •  Check out this video of our beloved Bill taking an approach shot and then feeding grass to a fan.  


  • Here’s a convincing argument as to why stream of consciousness will kill off websites. It’s been real, y’all.
  • Jennifer Lawrence didn’t win Best Actress at the BAFTA’s and David O. Russell is pissed.


  • Also in celeb news, Dave Grohl did an AMA on Reddit last weekend ..and it ruled.
  • Do you hate Anne Hathaway? (Yes.) Check out her cringeworthy cameo in this Oscar-themed installment of “Between Two Ferns.”

  • Ever wonder what happens when you point a video projector at a blizzard? MAGIC, you guys.

  • Hey, remember Jack White’s mega-awesome Grammy performance? Yeah, he didn’t rehearse that. Why? Because he’s Jack f*cking White.
  • Speaking of music, if this little girl rockin’ out to Bad Brains doesn’t make you want to procreate, nothing will.


  • Finally, in the spirit of Mardi Gras, here’s a Tumblr dedicated solely to photos of the gratuitous nudity this holiday provokes.

So until next time.. have fun, eat Cajun food, and don’t spray paint a pink corset onto your body.
