It was announced yesterday that Family Guy and Ted artiste Seth MacFarlane will for some reason host the 2013 Oscars. While he can’t possibly be as bad as James Franco, Anne Hathaway or Billy Crystal, look for him to put his own unwelcome stamp on the ceremony.
Last week disgraced philandering ex-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger showed up on 60 Minutes, shameless shilling his book which rehashes his affair with his housekeeper and the illegitimate child it produced. Well, Arnold isn’t the only one who can shill. We gleefully present this 2011 MAD classic from our 20 Dumbest People, Events and Things issue.
During his performance on Saturday, Justin Bieber puked out his Canadian guts all over the stage. Suffice to say, the copious barf was the best thing to ever come out of his mouth during a concert. Bieber claimed that his ralphing was caused by drinking too much milk (just how wholesome is this weiner?!?) — but it got us wondering if there was a way for Biebs to turn this unfortunate event into a career boost!

With over a half billion searches in the first few days, the new operating system is creating some unexpected problems.
We often notice when two things are similar. Mountain Dew and Mello Yello? Similar! Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel? Similar! Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and the Star Wars saga? Similar!

The NFL’s replacement refs have been ultra-horrendous all season — and last night, when they botched the winning “touchdown” in the Seahawks-Packers game, they weren’t even that good! But no worries! The idiot NFL says the idiot refs got it right! Meanwhile, the league continues to lock out the real refs because the poor saps want a pension — which a league that makes 40 zillion dollars a year apparently can’t afford.
