During the Super Bowl last week, Lady Gaga gave a well-praised performance during halftime. While her music is awful, the woman knows how to put on a show. Almost immediately, beer-bellied men and catty women across the fruited plains began pointing out a slight "belly" that barely hung over Gaga's waistline. Matt's cousin was so moved by the Lady's bit o' flab that she took to Instagram with pictures of her own belly much to the horror of her family. Matt invited her on to talk about the issue of body-shaming/fat-shaming and how, yes, we should be ashamed of our flabby bodies. 


Did you see the debate between Bernard Sanders and Ted Cruz? Matt and Pete happened to be driving when it came on the radio and they learned a very interesting fact about Ted Cruz's dad's piggy bank. 


Joy Villa, a name we've never heard before, shot to stardom because of a simple blue dress. No, not the same blue dress that made Monica Lewinksy a household name, but a blue dress with what some would consider an equally prurient stain on it. 


And finally, Valentine's Day. Seriously? Can we stop pretending we're doing anything special by doing the same thing as everybody else on one day? Isn't it about time we told Hallmark to stop tricking us and we create our own Valentine's Days that are as unique and personal as the couples creating them? The answer is yes and there is no argument.
