It’s harder to dislike Mark Wahlberg after a post like this. I mean, I still do. It’s just harder. And that 4 a.m. club is dumb! (LG)
You ever physically backed away from something Tonka Lahren said because your subconscious is telling you that you need to stand back or you’re gonna get your face slapped off in the crossfire? That happened when I saw her tell Michelle Obama to “sit down.” Like, Michelle is way too classy to throw a punch, but she’s got people, you know? I’d embed some social media responses here, but they are not suitable for a family website such as ours. (Celebitchy)
A lot of folks are taking a lot of satisfaction in Cosby’s imprisonment today, but few more than Michael K and this headline. (Dlisted)
Bill Cosby's publicist, Andrew Wyatt, claims both Cosby and Brett Kavanaugh are victims of "a sex war" that is "going on in Washington today." pic.twitter.com/jRHOjzUZD7— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) September 25, 2018
And Brett Kavanaugh is over here like …
I mean …
Sean Hannity just said on his radio show that the Kavanaugh allegations are “so reminiscent of Clarence Thomas and what happened to him” pic.twitter.com/Uk9RAZAeMl— Steve Morris (@stevemorris__) September 25, 2018
Uh huh, uh huh. Yes, it does.

Speaking of which, even though Christine Blasey Ford specifically asked the GOP Senate not to bring in lawyers to question her, they’ve done exactly that, and worse: They’ve hired a female attorney and won’t reveal who it is. Dicks. (Politico)
Those of you who are great admirers of the Dad joke like I am will appreciate this deconstruction, though my favorite part is the origins of the Dad joke in each Dad: “It’s a combination of exhaustion and your kids laughing at anything when they’re very young, which creates a perverse incentive system and endows you with false confidence.” Accurate. (The Atlantic)
Remember when the whole world laughed at Trump earlier today. Trump says that he meant to make them laugh.
Trump on laughter at UN during speech: “Oh it was great. Well that was meant to get some laughter, but it was great.”— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) September 25, 2018
Reminder: The line that elicited the laughter was “that his administration had accomplished more than almost any other administration in history.” Maybe that’s the Trump equivalent of a Dad joke.
Meanwhile, when this happened earlier, I just couldn’t. I’d reached my daily limit on Trump posts.

The goddamn best, is what she is. The goddamn best (is that Sheen? I think it is!)
The 49ers lost their starting QB over the weekend, so I’m sure their first thought was, “We gotta bring back Kaep, right?” Nope. The fact that Tom Savage is going to start this weekend is the only evidence that Kaepernick needs to win in his lawsuit against the NFL. (The Root)
I don’t know what upsets me more: That they’re making a stage show out of Almost Famous, or that I’ll probably never get to see it. Also, new adaptations of High Fidelity AND Almost Famous on back to back days? They’re just wailing on my pop-culture sweet spot. (Variety)
Hey! Y’all remember when we used to call Bradley Cooper an Emu face around these parts? The header photo on this brought it all flooding back to me. (Lainey)
Your arms go in the sleeves, Blake. (GFY)
I feel like I can appreciate both that Ted Cruz got shouted out of a D.C. restaurant and that Beto O’Rourke asked that Cruz be treated with respect. (Jezebel)
Not right that Senator Cruz and his wife Heidi were surrounded and forced to leave a restaurant last night because of protesters. The Cruz family should be treated with respect.— Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) September 25, 2018
Just leaving this here:

The Saga series, by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples, is about an interracial family fleeing those who would kill them. Naturally, it’s been challenged on the basis of being anti-family. Faintingviolet had been holding off on reading the series until it is almost finished, but a friend gave her the first 8 volumes. "These books are viscerally good. Cancel plans, move around to-read lists, question all life choices that have kept you from reading them before now GOOD." Have you read the series yet? (Cannonball Read 10)
