As the battle for NBC's late night lineup continues, the jokes get funnier (at least from Conan.  Jay hasn't been funny in years).

I'm on the Netflix 3-at-a-time plan, which means I'm getting a lot of those red envelopes every month.  Netflix is incredible, but I always end up with a lot of those extra envelope flaps that you tear off.  They get recycled, but it's still a lot of waste.

Until these geniuses came up with a bunch of origami designed specifically for the Netflix tear-off flap.

Spaghetti O's creator (and Wisconsin native) Donald Goerke died today.  I'm going to have some SpaghettiO's with Meatballs in his honor.

Today marks the 32nd anniversary of the release of Saturday Night Fever - the official movie of Disco. Thankfully, disco went away and rock survived.

Check out the trailer for the film here...

I'm crushed... the host of the greatest game show in television history has died.

No, not Bob Barker, Monty Hall, or Bob Eubanks. Not even Bert Convy, Peter Tomarkin, Richard Dawson, or even Tom Woolery.

I'm talking about the Quizmaster of 72 Whooping Cough Lane... Ken Ober. Host for all five seasons of MTV's first original non-musical program... the game show "Remote Control."

If you don't remember Remote Control or never saw an episode, I've got a full one for you below in two parts. Enjoy. We'll miss you Ken.

This... Is... AWESOME.

Not sure when I'll have the occasion to build one of these, but next time I host a football gathering at my place you'll definitely see one on my table.

Check out the instructions on how to build your own here.

Sesame Street rocks. Their first episode aired 40 years ago today, so here are some classic moments that bring back tons of childhood memories...

Glad I wasn't at the 45-10 game in Cincinnati last week.
The Bears will end up fighting the Lions for the basement in this division.

Glad that guy wasn't at the 61-7 game at Soldier Field in '79!

Ok. Seriously. I know you love the Packers. And I know you're upset because...

A) Brett Favre is playing for the Vikings now.
B) Brett Favre and his Vikings kicked the crap out of the Packers last week.
C) Aaron Rodgers is getting sacked more often than he's completing passes.
D) You're probably going to finish third in the division behind the Bears and Vikings.

But you really need to CALM THE F*#K DOWN! It's just football. It's a game. You're going to have good seasons... and bad seasons... and a lot of mediocre seasons in between. There's no reason to STAB A VIKINGS FAN over it. No matter how much Vikings fans piss us all off sometimes.

Remember... You had plenty of bad seasons even when Favre was still playing for the Pack. And there was a LONG stretch in the 80's when the Packers plain out sucked. You'll get through it. Things will get better. At least you're not a Lions fan.

There's no reason to be a drunken idiot and stab someone. Let us Bears fans be the dicks of the NFC North. We've had plenty of practice, and usually no one gets stabbed over it.

Spin Magazine recently posted their list for the 50 Greatest Cover Songs. It's Spin, so there's a lot of trendy hipster stuff on there, but still a good list overall.

Check it out here.

That inspired me to have an hour of just cover songs for the Noon Lunch Whistle. Make your suggestions here...

I can't get enough of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia on FX. Season premiere was last night, and while the new episode wasn't one of their best, I'm definitely looking forward to this season... if only for the following moment:

Sure, Patrick Swayze was in a bunch of B-level movies like Road House and Point Break. But those movies are still pretty entertaining. Even if we had to deal with crap like Ghost and Dirty Dancing.

But most importantly, Patrick Swayze gave us the following sketch from Saturday Night Live. Still one of the funniest ever.
