Jimmy Fallon frequently has Tonight Show musical groups join him and The Roots in a dressing room for an impromptu performance.

So why not get Adele in there to sing "Hello," accompanied by toy instruments that could be found in any elementary school in the country?

And why should we be surprised that even under those circumstances, Adele sounds amazing.

She deserves every bit of attention she's getting lately, don't you think?

While the Obama family was inside the White House celebrating Thanksgiving, a guy draped in an American flag jumped the fence and was able to get onto the lawn.

The Secret Service apprehended him immediately, but the grounds and building were placed on lockdown for about three hours.

Looks like those new security spikes they put up earlier this year didn't deter fence-jumpers the way they'd hoped.

Scary stuff...

They're calling it the Weather Girl Dress.

Sure, it's sexist and hearkens back to the 60s and 70s, but that's not the point.

Thanks to a Facebook group, a certain dress is starting to appear on local weather forecasts, worn by female meteorologists.

It's just $23 - economical - and available on Amazone - free shipping with Amazon Prime.

And it meets the exacting standards for TV dress codes.

No harsh patterns, no cleavage, and nothing green.

So it's starting to appear all over the country.

Is it in your market yet?

Katherine Timpf is not a Star Wars fan. And that's okay.

Unless you're a major uber Star Wars fan. Then it's major uber not okay.

It started with a simple Tweet, with the Fox News contributor saying she wasn't familiar with Star Wars because she was too busy liking cool things and being attractive.

Following that, she started getting death threats from people who took major uber offense to her comments.

It's not funny, but she's not backing down either. You have to check out her Twitter feed.

There's some pretty funny stuff there. Pretty pathetic stuff too.

I love this movie review.

Scott Sapp from the band Creed put on his reviewer's cap to take a look at the movie Creed.

Truth be told, it's a FunnyOrDie bit, and Scott pulls it off perfectly.

Plenty of tongue-in-cheek confusion, with Scott believing the movie's supposed to be a documentary about him and his band...

Golden Tate, a wide receiver for the Detroit Lions, caught a pass from QB Matthew Stafford yesterday, and literally walked it into the end zone for a touchdown.

The Lions were playing the Philadelphia Eagles in their annual Thanksgiving day game, The Lions won, 45 - 14.

The TD catch by Golden is fun to watch.

He catches it at about the two-yard line.

A Philadelphia defender completely misses the tackle, and it looks like everyone else wearing a white jersey gave up on the play.

So Golden just walked it in. No rush, just a couple of steps like he was talking a post-turkey-feast stroll...

Blaine Gabbert is the current starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49'ers.

And he's been doing okay since replacing the struggling Colin Kaepernick.

He showed up to a press conference yesterday.

And he was the only one to show up.

He handled it well. Read the tweeted progression from Mindi Bach, a sportswriter from the Bay Area.

Thanksgiving is one of the biggest travel times of the year.

People go amazing distances to be with their friends and family to celebrate and break turkey.

The folks at The New York Times put together a pretty interesting graphic presentation to show the heavily traveled air routes.

Check it out - and see if you can figure out where your neighbors are right now

Thanksgiving is a time for family gatherings.

And when family gathers, sometimes things can get a little heated.

Well, now that can be fixed.

If the conversation around the carved turkey takes a turn for the worse, just plug in a little Adele singing "Hello," and all with be well.

Funny bit from Saturday Night Live last weekend... Check it out!

This may be the most awkward exchange ever between two people who make their living with comedy.

Stephen Colbert had Bill Maher on his show the other night, and the discussion turned to religion.

Stephen's a practicing Catholic - "doesn't mean I'm good at it," says Stephen.

Bill was raised Catholic, but is now non-religious.

Somehow, Stephen tried to convince Bill to return to the Church.

I'm pretty sure he was kidding, but Bill didn't seem to get that.

And that's when it all turned awkward.

Check it out. Maybe it's just me?
