hat being worn
no more photos being posted
it’s been five goddamn months
podcast needs to be hosted
and the hat’s not looking good
but at least it’s got no lice
a lot of people wore it once
and one or two wore it twice
tell lakshmi put it on
we take a quick selfie
fill the room up with the squad
talk about diversity
then we’ll have a spelling bee
try to spell exotic names
hit the oversize p
play some sideshow sorta games
this is the end of lakshmeme
you’re gonna miss it when it’s gone
those damn instagrams and those tweets
should be immortalized in song
so we’re singing for you
public radio needs more memes
so maybe make yourself a hat
and put it on every last damn person that you know
and think about this and look back
on how we got Lakshmi coming out!

took a while to get her here cuz she choosy

Thanks, Dave. Thanks, Norm.

If you missed Letterman’s last shows, what you really missed was Norm’s last set and his emotional goodbye to his stand-up hero:

He Sees A Darkness

Wow. Just Wow

Maybe Owen Wilson is easily wowed, but maybe we should all try to see the world through his easily-wowed eyes:

The Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan Museum Finally Exists In Brooklyn

Best friends and comedy writers Matt Harkins and Viviana Olen were six and seven years old when Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was attacked with a baton on behalf of her arch-rival, Tonya Harding, in 1994. The following federal investigation (which would reveal Harding’s then-husband helped plan the attack) was one of the biggest sports stories of the century.

Harkins and Olen weren’t fully aware of the scope of the story until watching the ESPN documentary, The Price of Gold, which humanizes both athletes. Then they were hooked, and surprised how little their peers remembered of the controversial events. “I made out with a 25-year-old and he had no idea what I was talking about,” Olen says. “That really impressed on us the fact that there’s a whole generation that doesn’t remember.” So they opened a museum:

Say Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?

Thanks, Ethan!
