Vanity Fair’s “Zach Galifianakis Swimsuit Calendar” is missing 11 months, and then some

I feel cheated and used after clicking on the multiple pages for Vanity Fair's slideshow this afternoon that accompanied the headline "The Zach Galifianakis Swimsuit Calendar." For one thing: Galifianakis looks dashing in a suit suit on the intro post for Vanity Fair's slideshow. For a second thing: All of the pics in the slideshow are in the same one-piece bathing suit. Where are the other 11 months for this calendar that does not actually exist, so how dare you magazine, how, dare, you? For a third thing: I think we all still like this Comedy Death-Ray calendar pin-up better, depicting Zach Galifianakis in a wedding dress getting hitched to Brody Stevens. CDR FTW. Still...

Things I learned in real time about “Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time” on Comedy Central

Nick Swardson debuts the first of his seven-episode sketch series, Nick Swardson's Pretend Time, tonight on Comedy Central.

The other? George W. Bush. 4) Swardson joked about getting into a fight in a bar one time because he took out his penis and placed it over his wrist, pretending it was his watch, and asking a guy what time it was. (Note: I think a few of us already heard this one!) 5) Jon Glaser, who spoke with Swardson at New York Comic-Con, told the crowd that his first memory of knowing Swardson happened one year at Seattle's Bumbershoot festival, wherein Swardson opened the refrigerator, turned to reveal his penis...
