'300 Sandwiches': 10 films to make out of the book

The internet briefly went crazy a few weeks ago over 300 Sandwiches, the blog/cry for help written by a woman whose boyfriend promised her an engagement ring if she could only make him 300 sandwiches — precisely the kind of romantic-comedy behavior that seems somewhat unseemly when it becomes real-life behavior. But now we’ll be able to ponder the romantic implications of the Pumpkin Biscuit, Bacon, and Scrambled Egg Sandwich beyond the world of inadvertently hilarious blogs. The New York Post reports that Stephanie Smith — the author of 300 Sandwiches and coincidentally a writer for the Post — now has a book deal, because this is still America, and if you can’t get a husband then at least you can get a book deal, amiright, ladies?

Of course, this could — nay should — be just the tip of the iceberg. (Lettuce.) After all, the vaguely similar ticking-clock-romance website 40 Days of Dating is getting its own movie. And how many sandwiches did they even eat in their 40 days of dating? Not 300, that’s for sure. This could be a whole franchise. This could be a whole linked series of franchises. Below, our 10 humble suggestions for movies derived from the über-popular 300 Sandwiches brand:

These Russian policemen recorded the year's most delightful 'Get Lucky' cover -- VIDEO

Why are these uniformed Russian cops singing a heavily accented, stage-fog-obscured, dorkily funky cover of Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams’s “Get Lucky”? Unless you can read Cyrillic script, you’ll have to be content with this Google Translated explanation: “Go to our office got the video for Get lucky, that ensemble MIA, probably preparing for the Kremlin concert on November 10.” Well, there you go!

Giddy child hacks Fox News website? Yeah, not so much

fox-news

To be fair, we don’t really know who’s to blame for the fake zombie news banner and delirious featured story (headline: “WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”; subhead: “STUFF YO”) that appeared suddenly on Fox News’ website just moments ago — though the cable channel itself blames “an internal production problem.” [Oh, wait -- actually, we do! Scroll down to see an official statement from Fox News.]

Al Roker is #TooOld for this Drake concert -- VIDEO

So, Al Roker went to a Drake concert this weekend. And thanks to the Internet, you don’t have to imagine what that looks like; you can see for yourself.

The 59-year-old Today show weatherman posted a selfie Vine from Drake’s show at Hartford, Conn.’s XL Center on Saturday night, and while he’s clearly savvy enough to use the micro-video app, he insists he’s #TooOld to be there.

So here's what happened when Tom Hiddleston did 'SNL Korea' -- VIDEO

Self-proclaimed “lucky old sausage” Tom Hiddleston — a.k.a. the Marvel Film Universe’s Loki, god of mischief, madness, and evil — is having a grand old time touring around Asia. On Oct. 12, he posed in front of Beijing’s Qianmen; later that day, he posted a selfie from atop the Great Wall.

Soon afterward, Hiddleston traveled even farther east to taste the fruits of Seoul — including a guest spot on SNL Korea. (Yeah, SNL Korea is a thing. Since 2011! And their version of Weekend Update includes a pre-recorded weekly segment called “Wise Search for Life,” in translation!)

But I digress. Video of Hiddleston’s appearance has hit the Internet, and it is predictably charming. You may not understand what most of the people in this clip are saying — but watching an old lady tweak Loki’s nipples is funny in any language.

Conan O'Brien previews hour-plus chat with the 'relentless' Mel Brooks -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Conan-OBrien-Mel-Brooks.jpg

Mel Brooks’ fingerprints are all over Conan O’Brien’s absurd brand of comedy — can’t you see Richard Pryor loving Triumph the Insult Comic Dog? — and the famous funnymen’s mutual respect is evident in a recent sit-down for Conan’s Serious Jibber-Jabber web series. (The full chat hits TeamCoco.com on Monday.)

EW got Conan on the phone to talk about his admiration for Brooks and what he learned during their hour-plus talk. (The Serious Jibber-Jabber tagline: “Conan O’Brien talks for a long time with interesting people.”) We also nabbed an exclusive preview clip below, in which Brooks explains why Pryor didn’t star in Blazing Saddles and how they were free to “go nuts” with the script.

Check out our interview and the clip below:

'Modern Family' meets 'Breaking Bad': Jesse Tyler Ferguson takes a Heisenberg tour of New Mexico -- PHOTOS

When Jesse Tyler Ferguson grew up in New Mexico, Heisenberg was just a German physicist, not a porkpie-hat-wearing teacher-turned-meth kingpin.

But the Modern Family star clearly supports the White family’s Albuquerque takeover: When he visited his home state over the weekend, Ferguson and husband Justin Mikita took a tour of all the locations made famous by Breaking Bad and posted pics online.

First stop: Walt’s house, though that doesn’t look like a green Aztek in the driveway …

Schmidt shakes his groove thang in weekend-starting 'New Girl' Gifgasm -- EXCLUSIVE

Putting the “GIF” in TGIF, Fox just launched a “Gettin’ Schmidty Wit It” microsite dedicated to television’s reigning endearing d-bag. You’ll want to check out this gloriously silly tribute to Schmidt (Max Greenfield), who shakes what his mama gave him to a kicky tune that’s guaranteed to be “Shakalak”-ing through your head ’til at least Tuesday at 9 p.m., when New Girl‘s third episode of the season airs.

As you can see from the image above, Schmidt’s having the time of his chut-i-ney-loving life. But he doesn’t have to do it alone, does he? Come on! How can you possibly resist such unbounded exuberance? You can’t, right?

So click here to get your weekend started right!*

And don’t forget to keep clicking, Newbies! This is the kind of time-suck for which the phrase “the gif that keeps on giving” was created. If only there were about 100 more gifs ready to go. Note to Fox: MORE MORE MORE! (Please.)

*Just a warning for iPhone/iPad watchers: The sound will only auto-play on a desktop.

International buffoon and INFREQUENT ALL-CAPS TWITTER USER KANYE WEST is freaking out against Jimmy Kimmel right now on Twitter. Mr. Kardashian is upset about a segment from Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (embedded below) that used child actors to spoof Kanye’s recent crazytown BBC interview.

It’s somewhat painful to read, but I’ve found my new favorite hashtag: #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK

Big-time NSFW content — updated with Kimmel’s on-air reaction — ahead. READ FULL STORY

Horse_ebooks and Pronunciation Book: We try to explain what just happened

horse-ebooks

It’s been 77 days, and something has definitely finally happened. What that something is exactly isn’t so clear. Popular Twitter account Horse_ebooks and YouTube channel Pronunciation Book released information today on a new art project/ alternate reality game (ARG) platform, Bear Stearns Bravo (BSB). It’s weird, cool, and more than a bit confusing, so we parse through the Interwebs to figure out just what this all is.
