Colbert Lambasts Thanksgivikah, Attempts to Draw a Hand Menorah

Every year I wonder why all the good holidays—and themed coffees—are lumped at the end of the year…

Batman is just like you and me, and this is my new favorite thing ever. (Art of Sara J via The Mary Sue)



And so is John Travolta’s perfectly aged hair wig. (Celebitchy)

Octopuses/Octopi are the closest thing to alien intelligence we can study. They can open jars and childproof caps and if you try to give them less than fresh food, they might even stare you down like a sullen teenager. Fascinating! (Wired)

Also fascinating are these 20 Fun Facts About the 20 Best Seinfeld Episodes. Did you know that Rosie O’Donnell, Patricia Heaton, Mariska Hargitay, Jessica Lundy, Amy Yasbeck and Megan Mullally all auditioned to play Elaine? (Uproxx)

Surprise! Lance Armstrong lied about doping because he didn’t think he’d get caught. (This is your brain on ego.) Alex Gibney’s The Armstrong Lie, a documentary intended to chronicle the cyclist’s comeback, was sidelined by scandal and ended up more like A View to an Asshole. (Slashfilm)

The royals have separated! I repeat, King and Kween Kardashian have been living apart and are reportedly “much happier this way.” As with all celebrity splits, they expect to remain best friends 5-eva, or until one of the lawyers pisses off Kriss. (DListed)

When I was in the military, I wanted to get into intelligence (shush!) and had to take a test to see if I could pick up a made up language; it was super fun. So is this Great Language Game, created by engineer and language lover, Lars Yencken. (Mental Floss)

Fox News goes futuristic. (Unreality)

Some critic called Charlie Countryman “Absolutely crazy and thrilling.” I’ll tell you what’s crazy—the idea that a woman would choose Shia LaBeouf over Mads Mikkelsen. Also, Evan Rachel Wood’s accent… (via Yahoo)

Syfy has ordered up Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge, a competitive critter creating series for aspiring Geppetos and animatronigicians. Between this and its upcoming new original series (Bryan Fuller’s High Moon and Ron Moore’s Helix), Syfy may just make me forget the ridiculous name change. (Vulture)

These digital stained glass renderings of Lord of the Rings passages are stunning. (Buzzfeed)

And if your little one dresses up as an adorable little Elmo or Kermit this Halloween, will he be as ticked as you were when someone threw an apple in your bag? Nobody wants fruit, or any of these other 7 Worst 80s Halloween Treats. (Underscoopfire)

American Horror Story: Coven starts tonight, and the only person I’m not looking forward to seeing is Evan Peters’ real life girlfriend, Emma Roberts. She’s clearly negatively influencing his hair color and wardrobe choices. (Go Fug Yourself)

Let’s end on a funny note, shall we? Steven Colbert is a little riled up over Thanksgivikah. Hannugiving? I don’t know what to call it—just watch. (via Warming Glow)

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) wonders what a Hannugiving latte tastes like.
