How to Wrap a Cat for Christmas →
My cat would be outta there after the first move. But this is hilarious.
I am serious...
I just watched Airplane! on Thanksgiving for the first time in years, and I laughed out loud every time Leslie Nielsen was on screen. He always looked like he truly enjoyed the second coming of his career in those wonderfully stupid movies. In a Fresh Air interview, he said this about the role: “When I read the script I knew exactly what they were after. It was the greatest break of my life, in...

Pete: Craigslist headline--Selling my husband studio equipment-$100
Me: So when did you pick it up?
Pete: Oh. I thought you posted it.
