How's this for a fun time?

Brad and Dallas Woodhouse are what you'd call political pundits.

They're also what you'd call brothers.

Brad's a Democrat, and Dallas is a Republican. This week, they appeared on Washington Journal on C-Span to discuss their new book, "Woodhouse Divided," about bipartisanship and the political divide in the United States.

I'm sure it was a fun conversation, but not one that would catch my attention.

Until...

... the Woodhouse brothers' mother called in, unexpectedly and unplanned, and pretty much told the both of them to settle their differences so that Christmas at the family home would be peaceful.

The clip is below, and it is priceless!

Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow surprised some Wal-Mart shoppers in Orlando recently.

He unexpectedly showed up and took care of one customer's layaway bill.

Her reaction, and the reaction of the folks with her, is priceless.

Check it out.

Christian Bale's newest film, Exodus: Gods & Kings, hasn't even been out for two weeks, and already, folks are talking about his next film.

The trailer for Knight of Cups was released this week, and while the film's language is English - I understand all the words - I think I'm going to have to have an interpreter with me if I plan to sit and watch it.

It's not that anyone's unintelligible - there's no Stallone/Schwarzenegger component to the movie - it's just that I have no idea what's going on.

Sure, trailers are supposed to tease you and even titillate you, so you'll be interested in seeing the movie.

This one looks like a bad acid trip caught on film.

What do you think?

Whoever thought Jimmy Fallon and Oprah Winfrey could play a married couple?

Well they did - back in the 80s - on a soap opera called Midnight Meadows.

It's becoming a running bit on The Tonight Show, and it involves Jimmy and his guest running back and forth into and out of the scenes.

You almost wish they'd show those transitions. From the sound of the audience reaction, that's one of the best parts.

What's Up Moms is a great group of fun moms who poke fun at themselves and their lives.

Earlier this week, we featured their parody of Taylor Swift's "Blank Spaces."

Today, I stumbled on this "trailer" for The Holidays Are Coming, and while it's from last month, it's especially fitting now, with Christmas Eve just a week away.

Enjoy - and know you are NOT alone!

Bill Nye the Science Guy always does what he can to make science understandable to the Average Joe.

In this day and age, what better way to illustrate one's point - or, in this case, lesson - that with emoji.

Everyone knows what emoji are - so why not put them to good use.

So watch Professor Nye do Professor Darwin one better by using emoji to explain evolution.

I'll bet you have a Smiley Face when it's done...

Britney Spears Presents Her Dessous Collection 'The Intimate Collection'
According to Women's Health magazine, Britney Spears is in "the hottest shape of her life."

That's why they put her on the cover of the magazine.

And according to them, she did it all without a trainer.

They point to her "insane abs" and suggest that you too can achieve them with "one simple move."

I hate to be a cynic, but I'll bet it's the purchase of pretty good photo-editing software.

Does that make me a bad person...?

Thank you so much @womenshealthmag for featuring me in your new issue! 😘 It's on stands this week!

I've been picking on Saturday Night Live a lot this season.

It's like the whole show isn't living up to the standards set in the past.

Sure, there's a lot of history in the show, and some phenomenal years when everything they touched was gold.

This year, not so much.

So, when they do crank out something that's pretty good, it's only fair to point it out.

Here's a little something they did this weekend, and it hits home with a lot of casual Christians,

You know, the kind who only go to church twice a year - once at Easter, and once at Christmas.

Enjoy!

This new ad by Apple has been getting a lot of play since it was released on Sunday.

Over a million-and-a-half hits as I write this.

It highlights the ability of Apple products - a Mac, an iPhone or an iPad - to "create thoughtful, emotional gifts and memories that transcend time."

It's a granddaughter using computing power to create a duet with her grandmother's voice-over 45 rpm recording.

Tearjerker? I'm not feeling it. Does that make me Grinchy?

Honestly, I was more excited that the granddaughter had a turntable than anything else.

Prepare to scratch your heads.

A woman you probably never heard of until September or so - Amal Alamuddin Clooney - has been named the Most Fascinating Person of 2014.

Not that she's not interesting. But the most fascinating person on the planet?

All because she married George Clooney.

Which Barbara Walters refers to, with her gift for hyperbole, as one of the "greatest achievements in human history."

Perhaps it's time for Barbara to hang up her microphone, huh?
