Snook and Chris Christie: The Most Awkward Jersey Shore Meeting Ever!
When New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Snooki run into each other on a Jersey Shore boardwalk, awkwardness ensues. For them. For THG, quality viewing.
During the meeting, which took place as they filmed separate segments for NBC's Today, Snooki griped that Christie was standing too close to her.
Hilariously, he responded by standing even closer to the reality star.
CC then extended a hand to Snook (who was flanked by JWoww and Deena), she replied, "I just wanted to meet you, and just, hope you start to like us.”
As Snooki walks away, her facial expression is hilarious. Watch:
Justin Bieber Featured on Anti-Minimum Wage Increase Billboard
Justin Bieber is featured on a billboard in Los Angeles.
For a local tattoo parlor? For a new album? For the Chris Brown Fan Club?
Nope. For MinimumWage.com, an organization that believes a raise in the minimum wage will discourage business owners from hiring, which will negatively affect the unemployment rate among today's youth.
Reads the sign:
"Why is Justin Bieber so sad? Could it be because 24% of teens who want a job can't find one?"
We're guessing it's because Selena Gomez has left him lost and alone, but hey.
The ad then states that "teen unemployment makes us all sad" and that "raising the minimum wage will only make things worse."
It's unclear whether or not Bieber approved of his visage being used in such a manner, but we strongly doubt it.
Blackhawks Fan Catches Stanley Cup Fever, Earns Facebook Fame With Math Test Answer
Third grader Maggie Ciara has a serious case of Stanley Cup fever, as evidenced by an answer the Chicago Blackhawks fan put on a recent math test.
The question: “What is 9 times 9?” The answer? Hossa.
Marian Hossa wears No. 81 for her favorite NHL team.
As you can see, her Oak Lawn, Ill., teacher was baffled.
What is this? The best part? After seeing that she didn't get it, Maggie clarified it for her teacher, Christine Mech ... who gave her full credit and an A+ overall.
"Maggie is a very clever girl," said Mech, who actually is a Blackhawks fan herself. "I love how Maggie has a sense of humor. We had a little bit of a laugh afterward."
Also awesome? After Maggie's mom, Diane, posted a photo of the exam on Facebook, the NHL team itself "Liked" it and posted it on its official page too.
Hockey. It's always the right answer. Although the numbers aren't looking quite as good for Chicago, which trails Detroit 3-1 in the conference semifinals.
Taco Bell Lover Gets Beefy Crunch Burrito Tattoo
A man has gotten a giant O.J. Simpson tattoo on his leg.
But here's the truly incredible thing: it may not even be the strangest piece of ink we've seen this week.
Taco Bell has released the video of a patron named Jason who loves the Beefy Brunch Burrito. Like, really loves it.
Like, loves it so much that he let a cameraman follow him into a tattoo parlor where he got the item's logo permanently etched on to his skin.
"I have an obsession for the Beefy Crunch Burrito and tattoos," Justin says in the Obvious Statement of the Year.
We shudder to think of Justin will do about the Waffle Taco.
Desiree Hartsock: Still Obsessed With Sean Lowe?
The Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night, and it was a bit awkward ... which is standard for Des.
Still, it began to encroach into awkward awkward ... not cute awkward.
Obviously, she's not gonna give away The Bachelorette spoilers or anything. But when Jimmy started asking her about Sean Lowe? A tad uncomfortable:
She'd "probably" have accepted his proposal? Seriously?
Maybe she's just being honest and was that into the guy, but you have to wonder from a girl who just came off her very own special journey for love on ABC.
We're probably just reaching. It's a slow news day people.
Check out the second half of her interview below ...
Ann Curry Cuts Hair, Riles Up NBC Bosses
You'll forgive Ann Curry for not caring a whole lot about what her NBC bosses think.
The former Today Show host made her first live appearance on screen last night since her controversial firing, hosting the Nightly News for Brian Williams.
And while fans were psyched to see the return of this former co-host, they were also taken aback by her new haircut. As were network producers, apparently.
"Ann was always told by her bosses that her hair had to be long, and she just didn’t like to wear it at that length," an insider tells The Daily Mail. "She is a no-fuss gal, and doesn't want to spend a ton of time styling her hair. [So] she just decided to cut it."
Curry reportedly clashed often with producers during her Today run, with higher-ups mocking her fashion and style.
So perhaps this was her small attempt at revenge?
Either way, what's done is done. What do you think of Curry's shorter hair?

Alex Trebek is Insane, Conan O'Brien Claims
Has Alex Trebek been hosting Jeopardy a little too long?
Conan believes so, as evidenced by a recent montage.
On last night's episode, the host shared some pretty interesting footage from recent Jeopardy episodes, and it seems like either Trebek or his writers are ...
Well, either they're on something or losing it. Watch:

President Obama Auto-Tune: Let Me Address It!!
After a speech that saw a surprised President Obama heckled by an anti-war, anti-drone, and anti-Gitmo activist, the Internet was the big winner.
As Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin interrupted and harassed the POTUS during his speech on Thursday, Obama repeatedly told her:
"Let me address it!"
She was eventually removed from the room, and Obama went off-script to acknowledge her concerns and even urged people to "cut her some slack."
And that was about it, which means we can move on and laugh at the obligatory auto-tuned musical version of events that someone made online. Enjoy!
Amanda Bynes Appears in Court, Says Bong Was Just a Vase, Released on Recognizance
Amanda Bynes appeared in court Friday, offered a classic excuse for the antics that got her arrested last night, and was released on her own recognizance.
She will be back in court in July.
What began with a disturbance call ended with Amanda Bynes arrested for marijuana possession, evidence tampering and reckless endangerment late Thursday.
The latter two offenses were allegedly committed when she tossed a bong out of her 36th-floor window ... though she claims it was "just a vase."
Seriously, she said that. As for the pot charge, that stems from her allegedly blazing up in the lobby of her building, which led a doorman to call the cops.
Shortly after 11 a.m. this morning, the former child star showed up in court in a blonde wig, gray sweats and a baggy black sweater, looking blase.
Her lawyer, Andrew Friedman, said his client denies throwing a bong out of a window and claims that police illegally followed her into her apartment.
Prosecutors pushed to hold her in lieu of bail, but the judge cut her loose. Bynes told the judge to "have a nice day" and jumped into a waiting cab.
As for the insanity last night, the criminal complaint from the incident says officers responding to the lobby incident found a bong on her kitchen counter.
According to the report, the law enforcement official, wearing a "full police uniform," asked Amanda about the bong and the actress flipped out.
It's not clear whether her door was open or she invited the police in.
The officer said, "I observed [Amanda] grab said bong, run to the westbound-facing window, and throw it out the window where numerous pedestrians were walking."
Thirty-six floors down, on 8th Ave. and West 47th Street. Bynes was then arrested for reckless endangerment, drug possession and evidence tampering.
Bynes has a history of DUI and other automobile-related cases, not to mention provocative Tweets and almost daily media accounts of unusual behavior.
