1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    To be fair, the characters involved in this salad tossing incident were not in a proper relationship and were in fact trainwrecks.

    So it seems pretty legit if your trainwreck friends are identifying with them.

    Also, this season is beyond terrible (except for seeing a bit more of Brian Williams' daughter while her salad was being tossed).

    i've only seen a little of it here and there, my wife watches it (and then just bitches and moans about what she had to watch), but I really don't like their Brooklyn.



    thankfully Last Week Tonight has returned. Just waiting for Silicon Valley.

    I would like to participate in the salad tossing discussion, but first let me get this off my chest:

    What the fuck is a schmear?!? I had never heard it until a few days ago but now it seems like every bagel and sandwich place mentions it somewhere. Is this like the new tapenade

    It's cream cheese or butter spread on a bagel. the Jewish people use this word. If you're not Jewish and you use this word you are an asshole.

    unfortunately, social media has given stupid people an outlet, so the media just defaults to truth over sarcasm

    If the Grahamies had any integrity they would ban Kanye for life.

    2x utterly disrespecting the show and other artists present. What's the excuse not to? Cowards.

    It was a prison thing. Like most slang that comes from prisons it doesn't make any sense.

    This seems like an acceptable state for the world to exist in. So now Einstein bagels have changed the labels on their tubs from "spread" to "schmear". Sigh.

    Is it possible for an awards show to give an award to someone like 50 cent when Kanye is present? Just to have at least a chance that Ye gets his face caved in?

    no, I'm not really worried about entrapment. I do enjoy seeing others and their "oh shit" face the moment Chris Hansen pops out and delivers a warm "find the place ok?"
