Sure, scheming, warring and whoring is all well and good, but the truth is it doesn't always pay the bills in Westeros. Some of our favorite character's from Game of Thrones have to work honest jobs to finance some of their more nefarious activities, and to get the word out about their companies, to network and maybe win some lunches, they've been passing out their business cards all throughout the 7 Kingdoms.
Emmelyn Rottger has a bright future ahead of her. At the age of 3 she already has an IQ of 135 and is the youngest member of Mensa. She is literally a genius. But none of that is of any concern to her at this particular moment because she really has to poop. Like REALLY bad.
I can't often relate to a 3 year old, much less one who is smarter than I am, but on this particular issue, we all understand what she is going through. Having to poop when there is not a bathroom within reach is right next to drowning as the most stressful and helpless situation a person can experience. In that excruciating moment, all your thoughts and primal instincts are devoted to escaping the pain, and nothing, not social decorum nor Natalie Morales peppering you with astronomy questions on the Today Show, will deter you from finding sweet release.
So don't feel bad Emmelyn. We've all been there. Maybe not on national TV, but either on a long car ride or during a job interview or at a TJ Maxx. So chin up kiddo, you're still a genius, unlike your dickhead parents who wouldn't let you go to the bathroom and unlike the rest of us idiots who almost crapped themselves in a discount department store that one time.
Carmelo Anthony, finger pressed firmly on the pulse of Knicks fans everywhere, has a real sense of the moment. After a devastating loss and another first round playoff exit, spirits seem pretty low - it’s the perfect time for a galvanizing leader to spring into action.
What does the fan base need most at a moment like this? Consolement? An avowal to redouble efforts and intensify focus? Both would ring hollow as cliches. The right move, as Melo showed, is to tweet a vaguely pretentious, ill fitting quote from Gangs of New York. Why inspire when you can bewilder?

LeBron James has been pretty quiet this year. Not on the court, mind you. He's been pretty loud there, loud enough where he's a favorite to grab a 3rd MVP award. But off the court he's been low key. No lavish birthday cakes or cartoon series or locker room crying sessions [though the purse incident was kind of bad].
He's kind of shaken off the evil persona he seemed to invite upon himself last year and just got down to business. But that doesn't mean he shouldn't be reprimanded for past transgressions. And while some can argue he received his just due in the NBA Finals last season, I don't think anyone will argue that LeBron James didn't have a slap across the face coming either.
So thanks, Landry Fields, for exacting NBA fans' revenge, even if it was sooner rather than later.

This is hilarious without the half assed lightsaber effects--as is evident by the unrestrained laughter coming from the people filming. But adding lightsabers not only ups the entertainment factor, it serves as a reminder that geese are evil creatures and we should not let them push around, even they may try to take our hand off.
