The temporary street circuit in Toronto has seen better days. From 1986 to 2005, it was known as the Molson Indy, after a domestic brand of Canadian beer that I don’t like to drink. Attendance during the series’ glory days was 60,000 to 70,000 people. This year, they'd be lucky to get more than 30,000 people.

I'd rather eat a carafe full of army ants than watch MTV's Virgin Territory.

Immediately after recording his first strikeout, ex-NBA star Tracy McGrady retired from baseball, which means he realized the ultimate Secret American Dream: doing something right once and then quitting while on top.

That pop record that defined your childhood? It's 25 years old this year! You know what else is 25 years old? Everybody born that year. That's right, everybody. 100% of the things that showed up 25 years ago are 25 years old this year: music, movies, people, animals, plants, books -- all 25 years old!

Almost everyone that doesn't live in Chicago is wrong about it.

It's the meme equivalent of shouting insults at someone sitting at a bus stop from the passenger seat of a moving car, and it's actually a "viral hoax campaign." Are you proud of yourselves, you idiots?

On the surface, Magic's "Rude" is about guy who wants to marry a girl. At its heart though, lies pure selfishness. The guys asks his girlfriend's father for permission to marry his daughter. Dad says hell no, but because that wasn't the answer the singer wanted, he'll just ignore it and proceed as planned anyhow. That's a supreme dick move, no matter how much watered-down Burning Spear a guy records.

Kids being accidentally inappropriate is a curiously viral thing. These little tykes are so gosh-darn innocent, and so ludicrously bad at spelling, whenever they try to write something cute, it comes out evil, sexual, or sexually evil. Problem: every one of these is pure fiction, spread by people who are convinced children are secretly evil and really want everybody to agree with them.

Bowser kidnaps Mario, and Luigi must save him. But not by murdering everything in his path while sliding down flagpoles and gathering power-ups that Bowser really should've removed beforehand: no, he did so by walking around various real-world cities, stepping on the occasional enemy like doing so's a mere afterthought, and collecting priceless artifacts that Bowser stole just to be even more of a douchebag.

Look, you know we appreciate a good sexy contortion dance, but there's a time and a place for that sort of thing — generally late at night, after my wife has gone to sleep.

No matter how good Lucy's story is, and no matter how soothing Morgan Freeman's voice may be, it all falls apart because the basic premise (we only use 10% of our brains!) is total bullshit. The writers, producers, and director have to know this, and yet gleefully ignore it because coke dealers don't accept facts as payment.

One group that never gets attention because the "take a joke" brigade and the "apologize, scum!" faction won't stop squabbling: the "that joke sucked" crowd. Sometimes, jokes just plain aren't funny -- not because they're offensive, but because they're bad. At which point, "you don't have a sense of humor" ceases to work as an excuse.

I'm genuinely confused as to why we're even bothering with the Tour de France anymore. A whole bunch of druggies get on their Huffys and ride around France until people tell them they can stop. And that's pretty much it. You can't even blame the World Cup for the lack of Tour de France coverage. You can blame the pointlessness of the Tour de France for the lack of Tour de France coverage.

Androids, iPhones, and Samsungs are mainstream, and this the backlash has begun: they're too big, they don't hit in your pocket, they're fragile, those apps suck away your money, etc. People are actually braying about how much better old Nokia and Motorola bricks are, because Huey Lewis was right -- it IS hip to be square.

LeBron's best option is to launch the LeBron City LeBrons, hire some intern to be the mascot, and get to work. No way the King couldn't handle 48 minutes a night, 90 points, and 65 rebounds, plus it would mean all the money and rings to himself. Even Kobe can't boast that.

Head and Shoulders of any kind is not to be trusted. In fact, they probably put that viral scam video out themselves, as a way to distract us from the terrible truth hiding behind their many products. If only life were as easy as a mere ugly growth on one's shoulder.

How "colorful rubber" is supposed to equal "oh shit, that babbling ur-human I sired is getting toasty" is beyond me, and nobody can offer a decent answer. This is probably because they're too busy fawning over this supposed genius kid and his good intention invention.

A series of bulletin board warnings from the exasperated manager of "Shane from Walmart" have gone viral, even though his wacky insubordination is hopelessly, transparently fake. How do we know? Here's what would happen to irreverent jesters like "Shane" in real life.

Meet the latest case of a guy so sad you almost have no choice but to be glad you're not him. He's anonymous, and for good reason: he's suing a Quebec hospital for botched surgery on his penis that resulted in over an inch being lost. Also, he has no legs, because God loves us all etc. etc.
