    Dumb Holiday of the Week: National Tooth Fairy Day

    Hey, you know what's dumb? National Tooth Fairy Day! The Tooth Fairy isn't even a real thing so how the heck are we supposed to celebrate him/her as a National Holiday?

    Here's an idea, when I get drunk my drunk alter ego, "Chip," comes out. Why don't we give him a National Holiday? National Chip Life Day! It's perfect-- way better than the stupid Tooth Fairy. At least Chip is real, he lives within us all and he does whatever he wants. It's wonderful.

    I now declare March 1st, NATIONAL CHIP LIFE DAY! Let's all celebrate by getting wasted and doing dumb, but still courageous things!

    HAPPY NATIONAL CHIP LIFE DAY EVE!

    Dumb Holiday of the Week

    It's that day of the week you guys. The day that I pick out the Dumb Holiday of the Week and today's holiday sure is dumb! It's Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day… Really? Really?

    Did you know that each year enough Bubble Wrap is produced to stretch from the Earth to the Moon? Of course not because WHO CARES?!?

    I realize that Bubble Wrap is a kind of cool, kind of important invention but there isn't anything else we could be celebrating instead? How about National Kazoo Day? At least kazoos make beautiful music

    Is there a any holiday celebrating anything more stupid than bubble wrap or kazoos? Tweet at me and let me know @MrChrisDonahue

    Dumb Holiday of the Week

    Yesterday was National Peanut Butter Day, you guys. Now, I know this (brand new, first-ever) recurring blog feature is about dumb, fake holidays but… Peanut Butter rules! Is it dumb to have a whole day dedicated to Peanut Butter? Maybe a little. Should we actually be celebrating the man who invented Peanut Butter? Yes, probably but whatever!

    I love Peanut Butter. Crunchy, creamy, umm… on a sandwich, yeah, on a sandwich!

    Thank you George Washington Carver for… carving your way into my heart with the invention of that tasty, tasty Peanut Butter.

    Crunchy? Creamy? On a sandwich? You tell me @MrChrisDonahue

    Dumb Holiday of the Week: National Margarita Day

    Hey guys! You know what's a stupid fake holiday? National Margarita Day! How dumb is it to celebrate an alcoholic drink for only one day? "Extremely dumb" is the answer.

    Margaritas aren't even that good. Yeah, I said it, so what? If you want to have a good drink, maybe dedicate a day to a good drink like an Old Fashioned. That's a real drink right there, unless you're, like, eating Mexican food or whatever and then I guess Margaritas are alright, but who in their right mind would want to just sit around and drink a Margarita? Not me, that's who!

    Listen, I love alcohol just as much as the next person, I just think that tequila is disgusting and Margaritas are stupid. If anyone disagrees with me, well, you're wrong and you know where to reach me. @MrChrisDonahue

    Come at me bro (or broette)!

    TVGASM TUESDAY

    Luckily for you it's another TVgasm Tuesday, because if it weren't how would you know that Justin Bieber has broken the world record for douchiest purchase?! Did you guys catch the Tony's?! If not, 1) What is wrong with you? get out! Who are you?! and 2) You can catch up right now! But beware, Neil Patrick Harris will steal your heart and never give it back. Also, John Oliver has officially taken over the Daily Show for the summer, and I think we can all agree it kind of feels like mom remarried and her new husband is making us call him dad. Too real? Maybe, but I have a lot of feelings. Lastly, I think we can all sleep a little easier knowing that a Dumb and Dumber sequel will not be made. Let's just let it end, and put Jim Carrey down for a nap, ya know? Let's see what TVgasm has 


    This week:


    Ok I know we just talked about this, but I just think it's important to stay up to date on the important cultural events of our modern world, and in the spirit of that I present to you a recap of the most recent Princesses Long Island


    Do you have a sneaking suspicion Andy Cohen is a robot that the bravo network created out of a Ralph Lauren mannequin? Have you ever felt personally victimized by the Real Housewives of Orange County? You're not alone.


    How could Kanye West ignore his giant pregnant wife!? Find out on the internets newest web series: It's TV!! With Ronnie and Carrie


    Remember: Don't let the Biebs get you down, you too can be the douchiest person in the world! Just spend a couple hundred thousand dollars on something (anything really) with zebra print

    The Ultimate Christmas Playlist

    I am a big fan of Christmas music. Some people can't stand it: it's irritating, it's ubiquitous, it's lame. I mean, if you hear the same tune over and over in a Macy's as you fight off blood-thirsty shoppers, any song can get annoying. I get it.


    So you know what I did? I created an EXCELLENT Christmas playlist for you. It has the absolute staples, as well as some "more off the beaten path" tunes--you know, some songs that you might not hear a hundred times on the radio.  99 percent of these are all genuinely good songs. Sure, these are typical Christmas/holiday season songs, but more than that--this playlist is just some damn good music.


    The playlist is a SUREFIRE HIT so don't be afraid put it on shuffle at a holiday party, or just, you know... vibe out on it to get you in the spirit of things! When I picture myself listening to this playlist, I'm in front of a fire and a Christmas tree, casually sipping a martini and wearing an over-priced-yet-typically-festive sweater, surrounded by friends and family having amazing conversation as the music fills the air! It really IS the most wonderful time of the year!

    Dr. Spooktacular's Winter Trip to NYC


    One time a couple of years ago I dressed up as my alter-ego Dr. Spooktacular and goofed around in New York City during the holiday season.  That video is above.  Enjoy!

    Holiday Treats: The Best and Worst

    Hey, everybody! The Holiday Season TM is in full swing, and you know what that means: TREATS. I’ve basically given up on wearing jeans or anything that buttons until January 1st – it’s yoga pants from here on out. But what’s worth stuffing in your face? What deserves a pass? Well, I’m here with a handy-dandy GUIDE TO HOLIDAY TREATS!

     

    Disclaimer: I have a lot of strong, contrarian opinions about what is good and what is disgusting. Don’t take it up with management if you disagree.

     

    GOOD: Peppermint bark

     

    Oh my god, peppermint bark. I could literally eat my weight in you, peppermint bark. Homemade or fancy-bakery-style is the best, but Ghirardelli’s is a great substitute as well. I, for one, plan to spend Christmas Eve eating an entire bag of that stuff while watching Muppets Christmas Carol.

     

    BAD: Fudge

     

    No thank you, fudge. You are diabetes incarnate. The only people who like you are small children who have yet to develop sugar sensitivity and Buddy the Elf. Any more than a postage-stamp-sized square of fudge is WAY TOO MUCH FUDGE.

     

    GOOD: Wassail

     

    Yeah, I said wassail. As in, “Here we come a-wassailing,” wassail. It’s the bomb: hot mulled cider with apples, oranges, and spices, simmered on the fire for several hours until your entire house smells like a winter wonderland. If you’ve never made it, hurry up and get to it. You won’t regret it.

     

    BAD: Candy canes

     

    Gross. Too much peppermint. Plus, once you eat half of it, the end gets all pointy and you stick yourself in the gums. Candy canes should only exist for stirring hot chocolate and decorating Christmas trees.

     

    GOOD: Stollen

     

    Okay, yeah. Stollen is basically fruitcake covered in powdered sugar. “Ew, gross, fruitcake!” you say. “Shut your unholy mouth,” I reply. When properly prepared, stollen is delicious – doughy, sweet and marzipan-y. OM NOM NOM.

     

    BAD: Figgy pudding

     

    Come on, England. Figgy pudding isn’t even a real food.
