Steve Carrell is the People's Choice...that's what she said [Video]

The Office has pushed the phrase "that's what she said" into the mainstream, and no one has embraced it more than Steve Carrell. Check out his acceptance speech for the People's Choice Awards. The best part is that everything he says is something I've heard someone say in a genuine acceptance speech.

He missed a few, though.

"This moment is so much bigger than me."

"Without my wife/husband, none of this would be possible."

[When the music starts playing] "Wait, can you give me just one more minute? I'm not done yet."

MemeWatch: Gangnam style [Meme]

Have you heard the phrase "gangnam style" and didn't know what it meant? Want to be ahead of the curve on what the young people are doing? Then let's learn together with MemeWatch. Today's lesson is on "gungnam style."

From Know Your Meme, here's an explanation:

Gangnam Style is a 2012 dance pop single written and performed by Korean pop singer Park Jae Sung, better known by his stage name PSY. Since the release of the song and its highly entertaining music video in mid-July 2012, the video has gained more than 8 million views in the span of two weeks and spawned numerous parodies and copycat dance videos on YouTube.

The mass appeal of the music video has been attributed to its signature dance move known as "the horse-riding dance," which combines the stylistic elements of shuffle dancing and hand movements resembling the posture of a horseback rider. “Gangnam Style” is a Korean neologism referring to the upscale fashion and lavish lifestyle associated with trendsetters in Seoul’s Gangnam district, which is considered the most affluent part of the metropolitan area. In colloquial usage, it is comparable to the English slang terms "swag" or "yolo."

Here's the video:

Personally, I think that dance is awesome.

With the announcement of the "new" iPhone 5 with the usual incremental and inconsequential improvements that iPhone users are desperate to have, Jimmy Kimmel decided to have some fun. He went out on the street with an iPhone 4S (the only iPhone currently available) and claimed it was an iPhone 5. Let's see if people (specifically owners of the iPhone 4S) could tell the difference.

iPhone users, take control! Take control of your cell phones! Behold, the instrument of your liberation!

Jokebook: Cat's on the Roof

A woman’s on vacation and calls home to her husband. She asks, "How’s my cat doing?"

The husband says, "The cat’s dead."

The woman’s upset and says, "Well, you could have broken the news to me when I got home. I can’t enjoy my vacation now. You could’ve just said a little white lie, like the cat’s on the roof and you can’t get her down."

"Okay, I’m sorry," says the husband, "I’ll remember that."

The woman says, "Anyway, how’s my mother doing?"

The husband says, "Your mother’s up on the roof and we can’t get her down."
