Equal Gender Representation In Vanity Fair [The Apocalypse]

Vanity Fair has featured 6 men and 6 of a lesser-known species called "women" on the 3 covers of its January 2013 "Comedy's New Legends" issue. This will be their first comedy issue, guest edited by Judd Apatow and featuring: Paul Rudd, Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, Jim Carey, Will Ferrell, Leslie Mann, Melissa McCarthy, Megan Fox, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph. Equal representation of women and men in such a butch, flannel, pickle-jar opening field of work such as "making people catch a case of the giggles," has been empirically denied.

The Rival Rundown: Boston College vs. Notre Dame

This week, we take a look at the opponents in the nation's most notorious holy war. Not the mission in Iraq, but the rivalry between BC and ND, America's premier Catholic universities.

Girl Crush: Amy Poehler

Anyone who knows me know that I have a weak spot for funny people. Like, really, really ridiculously funny people. If you can't make me laugh, then I want nothing to do with you. On the flipside, if you can make me ROFL, there's a place in my heart for you. And if your name is Amy Poehler, I'll even share dessert with you (and I don't share dessert with anyone).

Only I discovered that including just 10 was more impossible than winning 8 medals in one Olympic games. And I am no Michael Phelps.
