Justin Timberlake has come up with a game-show idea that basically combines pop-culture trivia with, I think, PLINKO or something. I dunno, but it’s going to be on network television and offer the biggest cash prize on TV, which sounds like exactly something a man of the woods would come up with. (Lainey)

Kristen Bell’s toddler daughter singing “Let It Go” at the top of her lungs while in her underoos is just about the cutest thing to ever happen on Instagram. (LG)

Oh, it was Amber Heard who punched Johnny Depp in the face. OK (*Jon Hamm Yeah Sure GIF*). (Celebitchy)

Evangeline Lilly didn’t enjoy her job on Lost or the way her character was written (same, honestly). (Dlisted)

This is The Fug Girls’ headline, and they are not wrong: This Is The Best Dascha Polanco Has Ever Looked. Wow. (GFY)

“New York Times And New York Post Had A Jerk-Off Contest And Everybody Died.” Basically. (Wonkette)

Speaking of the NYTimes, the way it’s handling the Sarah Jeong situation is just embarrassing. Racism against whites IS NOT A THING. Stop validating it. You’re the fucking NYTimes, for God’s sake. (Jezebel)

And as The Verge points out, and as Kayleigh wrote a few weeks ago: This is all part of a targeted campaign by the alt-right. If you acquiesce, you have fed the trolls. It’s just like Trump and the NFL: He’s not going to back off if you give into his demands, he’s just going to move the goalposts. (The Verge)

And yet, at the same time, we obviously do not believe the press is the enemy of the people. Sarah Sanders will not offer the same assurances after given multiple opportunities in this spectacularly shameful scene from the podium today.

Amber Heard punching Johnny Depp’s face! Racism against white people! The Press secretary refusing to stand up for the press! I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. At least this makes sense.

And I can still get some satisfaction out of an oblivious self-own.

Pope Francis is still the best pope who is, also, still a pope. (Twitter)

The next #CannonBookClub book is also one of the 10th Anniversary Bingo categories - Craig Ferguson’s Between the Bridge and the River. AlabamaPink had this to say about Ferguson’s book, "It’s at times bawdy, surreal, funny, disgusting, and even a dash sweet-if you buy into that whole ‘romance in Paris with a sexy French citizen’ business." The discussion is 3 months away, November 2-3, so you have plenty of time to read it. Are you familiar with Craig Ferguson beyond his television career? (Cannonball Read 10)

Author’s note: If we’re going to replace photos of Trump with photos of Kate Beckinsale, Sarah Sanders will be replaced by Taiki.
