Happy Birthday to Craig! But being a Hobbit at heart, he gives to you.


This happens (and more!):
  • Is Jiminy Cricket still relevant, or just a wish upon a bygone era?
  • Did Mr. Freeze steal all the Frozen merchandise for Disney on Ice?
  • Craig gets a present!
  • Does NBC just not understand how Social Media works?
  • No Gold in the Olympics? Don't bother coming back home, comrade.
  • Facebook quizzes - Chock full of malarkey
  • Shouldn't BuzzFeed just be called BuzzKill?
  • Who's less romantic? John or Craig?
  • Unquestionably we have the weirdest Star Wars ethical question ever (ref: title of the show)
  • Yes, we still do Nerd Rage. This week: If you're so proud of being from cold places, go back.
As an added bonus, we summon you, our people, to subvert Tinder!

With such a hot, loving episode we know you won't be able to resist.
