Christmas, everybody! Celebrate this midpoint to the holiday season
in true Workaholics fashion: Throw a HoneyBaked Ham on the grill, tap the
keg-nog and if you’re lucky enough to not be in a cubicle today, check out Comedy Central’s
Half Christmas programing. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation kicks things
off this morning and the fun continues through 9 p.m. with the Half Christmas
Workaholics episode, “The Strike.” Let’s get weird!
If that’s not

can’t get enough of Shia LeBeouf naked, I mean Sigur Rós’ new video.
another video of a young Ryan Gosling bustin’ sweet moves.
(Late-in-the-game side note: Crazy,
Stupid, Love., featuring a really well-groomed Gosling, is actually really
good.) From feminist blogs to news stories about his dreamy ways, the Internet
loves some Ryan Gosling. Of all the options, my favorite is this clip from Mickey Mouse Club (co-starring Justin
Timberlake and *NSYNC’s JC Chasez) featuring a young, baggy-panted RG making
pre-teen hearts melt on stage. Shit gets real at 1:43.
Waiting for Game
of Thrones to return is tough, but thankfully the makers of the HBO hit are keeping
the show in the news: In a very intense scene of the first season, the camera
cuts to a row of dudes’ heads on stakes. Turns out one of ‘em was Dubya’s.
