Look upon these waxworks, ye mighty, and despair!

It’s a Tuesday, and this is a panda climbing on a snowman. You’re going to need this video after you see what I have up next.

Yesterday, Twitter user and Garfield critic Wyatt Dunkin decided to unleash a very particular kind of hell upon all of us by tweeting out some old images of some wax figures the Hollywood Wax Museum sold in an auction over ten years ago. I don’t know why he did this but because I had to see it, YOU HAVE TO SEE IT.

I’m sorry to have traumatized you. But there’s good news! Conan O’Brien actually purchased a couple of these figures and abused them the way they deserved:


Jane Fonda is going to receive the Cecil B. de Mille Award at the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards next month.

There’s at least one royal who watches The Crownand she likes it.

If Richard Lewis is your favorite part of Curb Your Enthusiasm, I have some disappointing news for you.


Woof. The Kellyanne/George/Claudia Conway family story is a mess. Last night, Kellyanne Conway’s Twitter account posted a topless photo of her minor daughter Claudia on Fleets, Twitter’s temporary story feature. It’s unclear how this happened, and it’s part of an ongoing fight between Kellyanne and her daughter, and allegations of abuse. After posting some TikTok videos accusing her mother of taking the photo off of Claudia’s phone to use against her in some way, George Conway posted the following through his Twitter account:

Asia Argento has accused Rob Cohen, the director of xXx, of drugging and raping her while making the film in 2002. Cohen had been accused of attacking another unnamed woman in 2019, and his daughter accused him of molesting her as a child. He seems nice.

Keira Knightley is done with sex scenes in movies with male directors.

Two Los Angeles CBS executives have been put on administrative leave after being accused of creating a hostile work environment and making “racist, sexist, homophobic and discriminatory comments.”

Christina Ricci has filed a restraining order against her husband, James Heerdegen, accusing him of abusing her beginning in December of 2019. He tried to file a restraining order against her in response but a judge denied it.

A woman who had worked for and had been romantically involved with rapper Soulja Boy is accusing him of raping and assaulting her and is suing him for “sexual battery, assault, false imprisonment, infliction of emotional distress, and back pay.”

Danny Masterson has pleaded not guilty to the criminal rape charges against him.

The allegations of rape against French director Luc Besson have been set aside — for now.

Going Viral

We are over 420,000 dead, but the good news is that cases are starting to trend downward. We seem to be plateauing in hospitalizations, and people seem to think we are coming out of the Christmas surge. Which is terrific news. Now let’s hope people stay home in a couple of weeks and DO NOT ATTEND SUPER BOWL PARTIES. Buy some beer at the store and watch it at home with your families. I promise it will be just as boring as watching it at a bar or your dumb friend’s house.

President Biden had a press conference yesterday where when pushed on some hard questions on the virus, he didn’t yell at the reporter or call them the “enemy of the people.” I KNOW! Instead, he clarified that he never said he’d crush the virus in a couple of months, but that he would, eventually, crush it. Also, he seems to think that we can get up to 1.5 million vaccines a day soon and that anyone who wants a vaccine will be able to get one by the spring. We’ll see! I sure hope he’s right!

President Biden is also going to sign an executive order hopefully this week reopening the ACA marketplace for at least a few months and also lowering the thresholds for being eligible for Medicaid, to help people be able to receive and afford health care coverage during a horrific pandemic that has also left millions un- and under-employed. Imagine that.

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees has sent a letter to President Biden telling the administration that they are prepared to build vaccination sites or convert entertainment venues into distribution locations. Do it! Let’s go!

The vaccine had nothing to do with Hank Aaron’s death.

We could be seeing COVID-sniffing dogs at airports soon. Yes, please!
