Petition Asks for Deadpool to Host SNL
Back in the ’80s, Saturday Night Live was the show all the cool kids stayed up to watch. If your parents let you stay up that late, you were a badass in elementary school. I liked those old skits with Eddie Murphy and his castmates, but the modern show is a bit boring to me.

Monopoly Goes Paperless in Ultimate Banking Edition

Monopoly Goes Paperless in Ultimate Banking Edition
The board game Monopoly is an American icon. It’s all about rolling some dice, moving some weird metal game pieces, randomly landing on properties, buying them and charging other suckers who land on them. It’s capitalism at it’s finest.

Super Mario Kart With 101 Players

Super Mario Kart With 101 Players
There are a lot of racing games out there, but none of them comes close to Mario Kart. It remains the best and most fun racing franchise ever made. I’m not sure anyone could make a better game.

Jabba the Hutt Shepherd’s Pie: Return of the Vegan

Jabba the Hutt Shepherd’s Pie: Return of the Vegan
I could never be a vegan or vegetarian, I like bacon and steak, and anything else meaty and tasty. I fully support vegans and their lifestyle, it just means more bacon for me. Even if it’s got no meat in it, this might be the most awesome shepherd’s pie I have ever seen.
