Tommy and Katie are expecting a baby. I'm expecting to be horrified. Yes, we here at MonkeyFilter normally discuss the loftier aspects of life, but we're always open for some good ol' Tommy-bashing. Gentlemen, start your slander..! more inside
Care Bear Stare! We Monkeys could invent better catch phrases with our tails behind our backs! I know, of course, that you can't 'make' a catch phrase, but silliness must prevail in the face of logic. Propose three, and, if desired, how and when one might say them. more inside

Curious Six Degrees Name Dropping George. Six degrees of separation between you and everyone else in the world, they say. But I bet Monkeys could get to famous people with fewer. The rules: A degree counts only if you know someone and they *also* know you by name. Let me start: my sister works with someone whose sister lives in a French village close to John Malkovich. John knows her by name. That means I'm four degrees away from Malky. Perhaps he'll let me crash at his house. more inside
RIP Nipsey Russell Nipsey Russell, who died Sunday at 81, was a pioneering black comedian who was successful enough to became ubiquitous as a guest on game shows, among other venues, setting him up as the kind of celebrity of whom nobody is quite sure how he got there or why. Yet Russell was part of a generation for whom appearing in regular television roles was itself a step forward.
