One year ago, journalist Jose Antonio Vargas revealed to the world that he was an undocumented immigrant — building his entire career, which included time at The Washington Post and The Huffington Post, on a lie. Vargas looks back at the past year in an interview with BuzzFeed, where he considers the weirdness of becoming an activist, his friends lost (many in the news industry), and his friends gained (Mark Zuckerberg, Aaron Sorkin). Great piece.

From the archives—a great piece on Jose Antonio Vargas for some backstory.

"Weird Al" Yankovic: Handy

(from Mandatory Fun)

Handy (Parody of Fancy by Iggy Azalea) -"Weird Al" Yankovic

I played this for my wife, who is a property manager. I haven’t heard her laugh this hard in weeks.

Also: The video for “Tacky.” Somehow, Weird Al still has it.

You don’t need to say anything, Sarah, we already know: Because you haven’t come up in the news cycle very much lately.

MEANWHILE!

Hey Tumblr let’s make a sandwich. I need money for materials though. It’s gonna be a kickass sandwich and may be the perfect complement for this potato salad. Donate to my Kickstarter over here.
Edit: Sorry, wrong link. This is the right one.

My fingers are a little wet from drooling while posting this!

These are four of the most delicious-looking concessions available at the 2014 MLB All-Star Game at Target Field:

1. The Hangover Burger: The hangover burger uses a mix of ground beef and ground bacon for two quarter-pound patties. They’re topped with american cheese, lettuce, onions, a fried egg, and a sauce made from sriracha, ketchup, mayo and cornichons.

2. The Double Play: A polish sausage and a bratwurst stuffed onto the same bun, side by side.

3. The Brat Dog: A footlong hot dog wrapped in bratwurst, then wrapped in bacon, served on a pretzel roll. There are peppers, too, so you get your veggies. It’s healthy, right?

4. Lobster Corn Dog: Fried lobster on a stick. There are no bad parts about that.

Hey usatoday, you should get those drooling fingers checked out. That doesn’t sound medically feasible. Also, I’m pro-branded buns.
