Worth A Link

  • Jesse David Fox has compiled a list of The 100 Jokes That Shaped Modern Comedy. They're not all one-liners -- some of them are extended bits, or TV shows, or movies -- and there are certainly plenty of others, but there's no arguing that his list includes lots of things that have been essential to the comedy pantheon.
  • In an interview with Playboy, Rachel Maddow opens up about the news media, the presidential race, and why she came out as a lesbian at 17.
  • Even Ernie Anderson (legendary voice of ABC-TV in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s) had to struggle with squeezing too much copy into a promo.
  • A head-shaking list of movies so bad they have a zero-percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
