    How To Look Like Grandpa-- But Better

    Walter Matthau was the man.

    He was half of The Odd Couple. He was curmudgeonly before you even knew how to spell "curmudgeon." He was Dennis The Menace's neighbor and basically your all-around-reliable-grandpa type.

    Admit it: you kind of wished your Grandpa was Walter Matthau. That's why you watched all of those Grumpy Old Men movies over and over again, isn't it?

    And thanks to Modern Primate, you don't have to BE a grandpa to dress like one. Be comfortable as a classic curmudgeon: Get. That. Look.

    Sports Balls Replaced with Cats

    It's such a natural fit that I can't believe I didn't see it before. Cats are furry, tipped with razor sharp claws and teeth, and generally grumpy. They are clearly the perfect substitute for an athletic ball of any shape or size.

    And thus, the Sports Balls Replaced with Cats tumblr was born.

    It wasn't my genius idea, but something tells me that my cat would object* if I attempted to dribble him towards the net.

    *And by "object," I mean "rip my face off."

    Please, please tweet me if you can think of an athletic situation where a cat wouldn't rip your face off @bookoisseur.

    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)!

    A 100 Year Old Woman

    What a tremendous spirit Dorothy Custer has!  She's 100 years old and she's still sharp as a tack, telling jokes to Jay Leno.  Sure, maybe she wouldn't be able to keep up with a young gun like Jimmy Fallon, but then again, I don't know - I actually bet she could.  She was honestly as funny as a stand-up comic!  Plus, she went into the touching story of how she met her husband, so she made me cry as well as laugh.  Gotta appreciate those that came before us, especially during this most wonderful time of the year.

    NOTE: Oh wow, when I wrote this, I thought it was recent, but this is from 2011!  She's still alive, and what I also didn't know is that Dorothy Custer is ACTUALLY a comedian!  No wonder she was so gosh-darned funny!  Certainly a National Treasure.

    Double NOTE: She went base jumping at 102.

    Nerd News

    Greetings Nerds, let's get on with it already! This week in Nerd News:

    -I know, I know, I talk about Skyrim a lot. But, ERMAHGERD NEW SKYRIM DLC!  Scheduled for release on December 7th, Dragonborn is Skyrim’s third expansion to come out this year.  From the looks of it, every Dovahkiin’s wish of being able to ride dragons will finally be granted. However, no one knows whether or not you'll be able to actually control the dragon or if it will just be a cut scene between traveling. I’ll be sure to give you all the information once it finally hits Xbox Live.

    -For most Whovians, the first five episodes of Series 7 was hardly enough for us, so we scrounge for any piece of news we get our hands on until the Christmas special.  Luckily, we've got our hands on some exciting info:  Neil Gaiman is back on to write another episode about the Cybermen!  

    -Saga issue #7 comes out next Wednesday after a long two month hiatus! If you aren't following Brian K. Vaughan's newest romp, definitely be sure to check this one out. Like I said, it's only seven issues in and has been collected into a trade paperback form, so you really have no reason not to. While I was at NYCC I was able to attend the Saga Panel and they revealed the covers for the next few issues. And let me tell you, they were goregous!*

    That's all I have for you guys this week!  Be sure to check out Kristina's Answerly video later today for more nerdiness.

    *with tons of robot sex and gore, Saga is very NSFW.  Read at your own risk!

    Oh, Fred Willard

    Oh. Oh, dear. Oh, dear, Fred Willard.

    You were arrested last night for what the internet is calling colloquially, "pulling a Pee-Wee."

    And this morning on Twitter more people are talking about you than the Emmy nominations.

    But, you know what, Fred Willard? It's okay.

    Maybe you didn't want to get a virus on your computer by searching for, um, adult-oriented fare. Maybe you didn't want to get your couch dirty. Maybe you were already out running errands when, uh, the need to do uh, "something else" struck. And maybe you just like doing things the old-fashioned way, and who can fault a 78-year-old man for kicking it old school style?

    We think you're going to come out of this one just fine. And I've got hand sanitizer on my desk for the next time you want to come into the office to say "hey."

    How to Look Like Don Draper

    FACT: looking like Don Draper ain't cheap.

    But Modern Primate has put together a list of Don Draper-ish items that you might actually be able to afford!

    We mean you can afford these things hopefully... maybe... possibly... and assuming you are employed and not in such extreme credit card debt that creditors have your cell number on their speed dial.

    $400 custom-made suits are a steal, yo!
