If you watched the Oscars last night, you witnessed some pretty hilarious events. From Seth MacFarlane’s song about boobs to Jennifer Lawrence’s fall while walking up the stairs. Speaking of Jennifer Lawrence, as you know, she won Best Female Actress last night for her role in the excellent Silver Linings Playbook. Based on what we’ve seen in the movies and interviews, the 22-year-old actress has made it to the A-list while still remaining humble and grounded. How we do know that? Check out this interview from last night after she won. Upon seeing Jack Nicholson, Jennifer is star-struck yet completely cool and witty. Basically, we love her.
In what sounds like a fraternity stunt gone wrong, a driver in Tempe called 911 to report that a Kangaroo was spotted hopping around the streets of a neighborhood late Thursday. And despite their disbelief, officers responded to the call did in fact discover two-foot-tall Wallaby, or mini-kangaroo, wandering outside a residence, peeking in the windows at a dog living inside.
According to AZ Central, it was simply a case of a runaway pet, Wesley the Wallaby, who belongs to someone down the street. The Wallaby, described as “friendly, docile and very cooperative,” was loaded into a large dog kennel, and eventually returned to his owner, where Wesley was last reported doing keg-stands while a bunch of shirtless dudes wearing backward baseball hats shouted “chug, chug, chug!” OK, we made that last part up.
If there’s a grain of truth in every stereotype, then this one’s more like a mountain. Tempe’s A-Mountain that is. Yes, the trendy gossip/news site, Gawker just posted another story poking fun of AZ’s latest political fiasco. Something about guns and circumcisions. We so wish we kidding.
All of which was catnip for the site’s famously-snarky commenters. But for once, they weren’t focused on making fun of us desert dwellers. Instead they were too busy chiding the writer for confusing UofA with ASU, when he said …
Oh, who are kidding? Anyone who can craft a pun about his cat-like reflexes that reads, “now you see me, meow you don’t” can write for us any day. And it’s not like we pay our writers anyway, right Eric Eats Out and Andrew from AZ?

On behalf of nerds everywhere, we’d like wish William Shatner a happy 80th birthday. Yes, the man who gave us such memorable characters such as Captain Kirk, TJ Hooker and, um, the Priceline Negotiator, is still living large all these years later. But don’t take out word for it, check out this hilarious list of “80 Reasons Why William Shatner is Awesome.” Hint: anyone else out there been immortalized with a custom ketchup bottle?
Quick, what do fancy ketchup and polo shirts have in common? Nothing good, normally. Just ask our dry cleaner. That said, we absolutely adore these new mustache-themed polo shirts by the mustachioed ketchup maker, Sir Kensington.
Who’s Sir Kensington? We have no idea, excpet he sells super-pricey “Scooping” ketchup at Whole Foods, and his cutsey website is filled with World’s Most Interesting Man-like bon mots such as “Carved from a Nharwhal [Whale’s] Tusk, Sir Kensington’s cane, contains inside of it, another smaller cane.”
Either way, we’ve already ordered polos for the entire team. Enter “Thrillist” at checkout and receive 15 percent off.
We’re not exactly sure how to tackle this slightly skeezy piece of information, so we’re just going to dive right in. We all know that tomorrow’s Valentine’s Day (if you’ve managed to avoid it, congrats on your uncanny ability to drink yourself into denial for two weeks. Cheers.) but today aims to recognize a different kind of love … or something. Today, friends, is National Mistress Day. (After all, taking your mistress out on V-Day would be a little declasse, no?)
What’s funny so about this, you ask? Well, nothing really, but this recent Urban Daddy post had our cheatin’ heart a’ chuckling as they broke down the most infamous “other women” in history. Read all about it after the jump. »READ MORE
