Last night’s episode of Parks and Recreation tackled the Pawnee City Council’s prehistoric gender relations head on. In an effort to one-up the all-male sanitation department, Leslie and April tried their hand at a garbage route, with mixed results. Meanwhile, Chris struggled to understand his new relationship with Shauna; Ron and Anne babysat Diane’s kids; and Tom, Ben, and Andy attempted to play basketball. Colossal failures and hilarious lines abounded. Here are the best:

I can’t keep referring to basketball players as Khloe Kardashian’s husband and his friends.

Just because most people don’t do a Golden Globes pool doesn’t mean you can’t predict if Homeland will build on its Emmy domination. Let’s take the 11 TV categories to a vote. Remember, this is who you think will win, not necessarily who you want to win. READ FULL STORY
Can anything get in the way of Lincoln‘s momentum? Could Smash possibly upset the Best TV Show — Comedy or Musical category? Who cares! The real reason to watch the Golden Globes this Sunday is to see three glorious hours of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing what they do best: Hanging out together and making us laugh.
Ever since meeting in an improv class nearly 20 years ago — back when Tina “had only recently learned that you can pluck your eyebrows” and Amy got $15 dye jobs that made her hair “the color of white lined paper” — Pohler and Fey have enjoyed a best-friendship that’s the envy of non-Tinas and Amys everywhere. (2012′s Night of Too Many Stars even auctioned off the chance to be the pair’s third BFF for the night; the winner, predictably, had an amazing time.) Naturally, the pair frequently work together onscreen — proving that as funny as they are individually, Amy and Tina are better together.
So here’s a chronological list of their greatest clips — starting with one of SNL‘s best commercial parodies: READ FULL STORY
Now here’s some NBC synergy we can get behind. Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones recently stepped into a cramped closet with Saturday Night Live writer Mike O’Brien for a new episode of O’Brien’s web series, 7 Minutes in Heaven. Their wine-fueled conversation covered everything from what makes Jones either “horny” or “super horny,” why she’s got some confusing feelings about Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall, and what it would be like if the actress were a “homely girl” who became a smoking hottie by putting her hair up and donning a pair of glasses. Eat your heart out, Kitty Sanchez.
Trust me, you’re in for a ride:
Leave it to Eagleton to stir up the crazy in Leslie Knope.
Last night’s episode of Parks and Recreation rekindled the “blood feud” between Pawnee and neighboring Eagleton when an Eagletonian architect offered to design Pawnee’s new park. The guy’s nice as can be and extremely well-qualified, but Leslie’s knee-jerk derision threatens to thwart the whole plan — which happens to be pro bono. The situation further deteriorates when a couple of pranksters from Eagleton make a mockery of Pawnee’s citizens. As you can imagine, Leslie’s vitriol makes for some of the more memorable moments.
“In 1984 a tornado struck Pawnee. When we asked Eagleton for help they claimed they weren’t home. An entire town claimed they weren’t home.”
–Leslie (Amy Poehler) on Parks and Recreation

Bacon-scented shaving cream is perfect present for Ron Swanson — also a real thing
I never thought of Nick Offerman as the game-show host type. (Rob Lowe, on the other hand…)
Yet it’s the mock-serious Offerman, in full Ron Swanson mode, channeling Hollywood Squares greats Peter Marshall and Tom Bergeron by hosting a version of the game for GQ‘s Men of the Year issue. Instead of keeping to the traditional format and asking true/false or multiple choice questions, Offerman challenged his cast with straight-foward pop-culture trivia.
Watch the video below to hear Aziz Ansari’s synopsis of 50 Shades of Grey and Chris Pratt’s lyrics to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” My only complaint is that the video is a minute too short. READ FULL STORY
Sorry, Honor — this product truly deserves to top Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness.
Yes, shaving cream that smells like rich, smoky pork actually exists. Here’s how the press release describes it: “J&D’s Bacon Shaving Cream™ is proudly Made in America and is the highest quality meat-scented shaving cream on the market today… It is best used after a hot shower or before an important date with someone you may want to spend the rest of your life with.”
As EW.com photo guru Jef Castro says, “That MUST cause break-outs. Or obesity.” Absolutely — but is it kosher? I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back from the product’s creators, “Bacontrepreneurs” Justin and Dave.
These guys also sell a sriracha-flavored lip balm. Wearing it, apparently, is “like making out with some tasty napalm.”
Congratulations, world: I have finally been rendered speechless. Ooo, accidental bacon pun!
