THE question of our time.

This amazing article also features an amazing correction:

Correction: An earlier version of this article erroneously stated that Bugs Bunny’s most notorious enemy is Porky Pig. While the two are known to frequently squabble, often in the public eye, they are in fact good friends.

We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?
"Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson • Talking about judging people in a recent interview for GQ. If the quote makes it sound like he’s equating being gay with being a terrorist, that’s because Robertson, the patriarch of the “Duck Dynasty” clan, sees homosexuality as immoral. During the interview, he also said this jaw-dropper: “It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus.” So yeah, he’s currently suspended from his “Duck Dynasty” gig.

Minton himself says that the suspect wasn’t dangerous: “He wasn’t wanted for a very violent crime but to the people in the neighborhood where he lives, you know, they want him off the street.”

… when you’re Macaulay Culkin and your friends are a group of talented “anti-folk” musicians, you don’t just laugh about how hilarious a pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band would be. You record a Pizza Underground EP at your house, put on a free show at a trendy Williamsburg bar, and send boxes of pizza crowd surfing over an adoring audience as you sing. For eight minutes.
Macaulay Culkin held a pizza party in honor of his pizza-themed Velvet Undergound cover band this weekend. He’s a Feta Fatale.
