If Jesus is plotting against the Knicks, then they really have no shot.

From a mid-March Spring Training game between the Mets and the Cardinals, this adorable clip has been holding a place on our DVR for over a month now, waiting for the right time to delight the interweb. Well, that time has come.
Cute video or CUTEST VIDEO??? Also, just some stellar parenting right there.
TLC announced their upcoming slate of new series and, well, fuck you, TLC.
What happened to the good old days when TLC aired British documentaries that occasionally showed a boobie?
In related news, Fox will burn off the remaining episodes of ‘Til Death this summer (take that, ‘Til Death!).
We’re bringing this “daily” feature back after a too long hiatus (mostly because we’ve been busy, but also because our search terms everyday for the last six weeks have all been some variation on “Survivor Federal Agent Phillip”), today working with a non-Phillip term, “www.cbs/jeffprobst.” Last week on Redemption Island Probst played with fire, just dying for a fine from the FCC and a rash of angry letters from the Parents Television Council. Luckily, he toed the line, and while it seemed like he was just begging to blunder (a la Jenny Slate), he managed to somehow get out the following challenge commentary without explicitly describing a lewd act (but certainly suggesting it). We included this in our recap, but it’s worth posting again. Probst, living dangerously!
Oh, and if you were really curious (although, why you would search for a url, we don’t know), check it: cbs.com/jeffprobst
It feels like it was just twenty-four short months ago that we launched this blog, but it’s actually been two full years. Can you believe it? When we started this thing, selling our comic book collection, maxing out our credit cards, and practically begging for help from all our friends at the convenience store, we were just hoping to break even. Post a few Office commentaries, make our buddies laugh, maybe get a few dozen page views and call it a day. Little did we know that years later we’d still be here, attracting 3,000 readers a day*. We’ve come a long way, baby.
So, in honor of our 2nd birthday, we thought we’d look back at some of our favorite Jumped the Snark banners, a little walk down JtS memory lane.
Our 100th post:
Our first Christmas:
This is it, guys! Merge time! And the end of Redemption Island!
Which would have totally been a surprise if they didn’t already tell us this in the preview for this week’s episode. And they didn’t just tease the game changer, but pretty much announced it. Which is kind of regrettable, as it took away a potential surprise in the midst of a run of pretty mundane episodes.
Also pretty regrettable – to us at least – is that the producers chose to coincide the merge with the reentry of the Redemption Island ultimate warrior back into the game. That’s too neat, too obvious, and we reckoned it would be too much all at once. Wouldn’t have it been more enjoyable, more entertaining if the Redemption Island duels continued while the remaining players vied for Individual Immunity? In short, in crass terms, our concern was that combining these two moves would pretty much be the equivalent of the show shooting it’s load. Would that be the case? We should see.
A few weeks ago we posited that the tattoo on Former Federal Agent (?) Phillip’s right shoulder looks more like a pimp than a lion. But even then we knew there was a better comparison, but we just couldn’t think of it. It was on the tip of our tongue, at the very precipice of our cerebral cortex, but we should couldn’t find it. Until now.
See for yourself:
Jackée, what do you think?
Well, agree to disagree.
Legendary director Sidney Lumet passed away this past weekend at the age of 86. Although he was long-known as one of Hollywood’s most prolific and talented directors, helming such masterworks as Dog Day Afternoon, Twelve Angry Men and Network, thanks to Vin Diesel we remember hms best for one of his later films, Find Me Guilty. Unfortunately, because of Mr. XXX, we’ll never be able to hear the name “Sidney Lumet” and not think of ice cream.
We guess Making Movies didn’t include a section about how to vary your stories for talk show appearances.
