Goodbye Hostess, Chris Christie on SNL, and President Obama Is Not Impressed

PRESIDENT OBAMA is more up on his INTERNET MEMES than I thought. On Thursday, the U.S. Olympics gymnastics team visited the White House. And Obama posed with MCKAYLA MARONEY, doing her famous "McKayla is not impressed" face . . . the one she made after she got a disappointing silver medal in the vault competition.
The White House tweeted the photo on Saturday, and I have it here on today’s blog pics. We're guessing McKayla is probably WAY sick of making that face, but she made an exception for the president. She says Obama ASKED her to do the photo and, quote, "I, like, freaked out . . . He's the coolest person I ever met."
I’ll go ahead and guess she’ll be making that face here and there for the rest of her life.
New Jersey Governor CHRIS CHRISTIE showed up on "Saturday Night Live" for the "Weekend Update", and talked about the Hurricane Sandy cleanup. He also made fun of himself for being a hot-head, and joked that he ALWAYS wears the fleece jacket that has his name written on it . . . even under his suits.
Christie also got some laughs during a press conference on Friday, when he refused to answer a reporter's question about Hostess . . . the maker of Twinkies . . . going out of business. He called it a "set-up" question, and said that if he answered it, they'd make fun of his weight on "Saturday Night Live" even more than they do already.
Do YOU think he should have gone on SNL while people are still reeling from the storm?
The "American Music Awards" were on last night . . . and there were quite a few surprises. Check out the Top Things Overheard at the "American Music Awards".
Gotye . . . Psy. Psy . . . Gotye. Now I'll leave you two alone to discuss life as one-hit wonders.
The first thank you from most of these winners should go to Auto-Tune.
Uh, oh. Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are fighting again . . . over the best way to solve the fiscal cliff crisis.
Whose turn is it to scratch Cee Lo Green's back for him?
Since the show started, Taylor Swift dated, and got dumped, by all five members of One Direction.
That Mexican boy band over there? That's JUAN Direction.
On Friday, Hostess announced they were officially shutting down, and they immediately stopped producing Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Ho Hos (at a time when pot legalization never looked more like a reality, no less. Oh irony, you cruel wench).
This has sparked a pretty ridiculous nationwide panic. Apparently some people started flocking to grocery stores to buy Twinkies . . . to HOARD them or sell them on eBay at ridiculously inflated prices. You know, if you cared about Twinkies that much before, maybe they wouldn't have GONE OUT OF BUSINESS.
Anyway, we heard reports that boxes of Twinkies were selling for hundreds of dollars on eBay . . . although I couldn't find any live auctions with bids that high. I’ll be SHOCKED if this was the end of Twinkies. The Hostess brands are going to be auctioned off and SOMEONE'S going to buy Twinkies. They will be back.
I’ve heard Pabst Blue Ribbon wants to buy them…get ready for PBR AND TWINKIES!
