The Entertation Index: May 23-27


Each week KSR’s Funkhouser collects the best of pop culture. The Entertation Index collects the best of the week for your consumption.

Foster, Jodie — Academy Award-winner and former Paul Reiser fake love interest Helen Hunt tweeted that a Hollywood Starbucks barista confused her with actor/director Jodie Foster this week. Hunt assumed the mixup as she has in the past been referred to on-cup by Starbucks employees as such Foster-centric names as “Jerbie Funster,” “Jolby Fosker” and “Jarpy Potscrub.”

Green, Draymond — The NBA earlier this week decided not to suspend Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green after he kicked Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams in the groin during game three of the Western conference finals on Sunday. In his defense, Draymond Green thought he was one of the terrorists from Die Hard.

Hammer, MC — 1990s hip hop icon MC Hammer told a Huffington Post reporter during a recent interview that he prefers not to use actual hammers, explaining “You can hit your fingers, so I try my best not to have to hammer too many things.” This would explain the original title of his multi-platinum 1990 album Please Hammer Don’t Hurt Me.

Muppets, The — ABC has canceled its mockumentary reboot The Muppets after just one season. “What an ironic twist this is,” said a staff spokesperson, “that this summer we’ll all for the first time be sitting with our thumbs up our own butts for a change.”

Syndrome, Dormant Butt — Doctors have pinpointed the combination of knee, back and hip pain as a condition they refer to as “Dormant Butt Syndrome,” which can be caused by sitting too much. The conclusion was reached after a study of the last six years of University of Kentucky Men’s Basketball team walk-ons.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if people comment on this and complain that it’s not about sports or that it’s a waste of time (even though it probably took more time to click on the comment section, log in, and write a comment than to actually read the article, so that’s on you) and things like that. But I just wanted to comment first and say that I thought this was amusing, and worth the read. GG, Tomlin.

    Since we don’t get Need to Know Wednesdays anymore, I’ll settle for these. Thanks, Tomlin!

    So ironic that Mark Zuckerberg wants privacy after becoming rich by stealing privacy from others via Facebook.
