I was clicking through the cable channels this Sunday morning and happened upon one of my favorite Jim Carrey movies, Bruce Almighty, at the exact moment that Bruce — enjoying his God-like powers by this point — tells his dog to use the toilet instead of going outside.
The image at left may have been doctored a bit, but if you’ve seen the film, the dog walks up to the tank, steps on the seat, does his business, flushes and even puts down the lid in deference to the ‘lady of the house.’
Now that I have an older dog in the house with more, shall we say, unpredictable pee pee patterns, I totally wish I had bought a little kiddie toilet and hired a dog trainer to teach him how to use it.
It would so rock.
He already reads the newspaper, of course.

I am so over this hashtag and how people throw it around:
Really? Are you really feeling blessed to get a fancy toilet?
Just Iike some folks on Facebook are blessed to find a parking spot or blessed to go out to dinner or blessed to do anything.
In the words of Inigo Montoya, “I do not think this word means what you think it means.”
Don’t wear it out, people…especially not on a toilet.

I was catching up on my DVR shows and caught Joe Biden’s wife on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Even if you didn’t know who she was, you knew wasn’t an actress as soon as she walked out on stage.
Look at that wave —
Now, that’s a campaign wave.

Poor Jimmy Fallon.
He fell yet again in Massachusetts, hurting his right hand. This is the same year he hurt his left hand so badly, he spent a week in ICU, and chipped a tooth trying to open a tube of lotion for said hand.
What a clutz…or maybe not?
You may recall I got bit by a stingray on my family’s beach vacation in Florida. There were 10 of us; I got the chomp.
Now it appears a spider bit my right arm sometime over the past two days, and I have a swollen lump of itchiness near my elbow.
We, Jimmy, are the chosen.
I will let you know if I figure out how to get off the list.

The Coen brothers, while creative geniuses, have overused the ransom plot line in their movies.
It appears in Fargo. And No Country for Old Men. And The Big Lebowski. Even Raising Arizona.
Then today I see a trailor for their next movie…about a kidnapping and ransom.
Okay. This looks pretty funny.
But let’s stop here with this theme, okay?

I have watched Seth Meyers on Late Night since he took over the time slot.
His monologue was awkward, and the producers wisely ditched it a couple of months ago.
But his interview skills put most of his competitors to shame.
Case in point: his recent sitdown with Ellen Page.
Page was on the program to promote her movie Freeheld, the true story of a dying woman’s fight to leave her pension benefits to her lesbian partner.
Page was focused and somber; you could see her talking points reflected in her eyes. Seth was respectful of the film’s subject matter, but injected humor at just the right beats.
Jimmy Fallon? Take a look and take a lesson.
This is how you do it.
