    More Celebrities Reading Meaner Tweets Are Hurtful and Hilarious

    If there's one thing we like more than saying mean things about people more successful than us -- and we're not saying there is, because that is, like, a top five pastime around these parts -- it's watching celebrities debase themselves by reading mean things that other people have said about them on Twitter. Of course, it's not really celebrities debasing themselves, because the joke is really "Look how impotent the best attack you can muster on this person is! It is a joke that they will repeat themselves on national television, because who cares what you think @some_asshole_on_twitter?" Still and all, we do get a kick out of watching folks like Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet andĀ Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston reading people's ill-conceived Internet slams on them in entertaining and only occasionally threatening fashion.

    Nick Offerman, AKA Ron Swanson, Reads Tweets From Young Female Celebrities While Doing Manly, Outside Work

    If you weren't aware, Nick Offerman, who plays manliest of menĀ Ron Swanson on the excellent Parks and Recreation, is actually the manliest of men in real life as well; Ron Swanson seems to be largely based on Nick Offerman himself. So, what's a funny thing that the manliest of men could do? Sternly recite tweets of young female celebrities while doing manly woodwork outdoors. I think Conan has a gem of a segment here.

    Celebrities Hilariously Read Insulting Tweets Out Loud [Video]

    This digital age makes it painfully easy to connect with others. Social networking can help you stay in touch with your family across the globe, hunt down old friends, make new ones, and tweet really insulting things at celebrities. I don't know about you, but that last one is my favorite by far. In celebration of Twitter's 6th birthday, Jimmy Kimmel arranged for a few celebrities to come on TV and read a few offending tweets aloud. I'll leave you to watch how it unfolds on your own, but let's just say those tweets get de-fanged pretty easily.

    Certain Celebrities are Protected from Having .XXX Domains Named For Them

    As you may or may not be aware, ICANN gave its blessing to the .xxx top-level domain a few months ago which means that before you know it, there are going to be a lot of .xxx domains out there. There will not, however, be a lot of celebrityname.xxx domains out there because a whole bunch of our famous friends have been given protection in the form of permanently reserved domains. For the moment, details are scarce. Neither the list nor the criteria for protection have been publicized, but through some Whois mumbo-jumbo, it's possible to dig up a partial list. It's worth noting that, for the time being, businesses will have to shell out a few hundred bucks for the same protection, but no one seems to know if these celebrity protections are pro bono or the result of a similar insurance purchase. Either way, .xxx domains, while lucrative, have to potential to cause a lot of people a lot of headaches so any anti-cybersquatting measures are a good idea. Partial list of protected domains below.

    The Best Spanish Alan Moore Impersonator Wearing a Blue Bowler Hat You Will See All Day

    There's a Spanish comedy show called "Muchachada Nui" that has a recurring sketch featuring parodies of celebrities called, well, "Celebrities." Recently, the celebrity they chose to lampoon was none other than Alan Moore, the shamanic, thoroughly bearded scribe behind Watchmen, From Hell, and V for Vendetta, among other works.

    Now, whereas an American parody of Alan Moore might use the obvious comedic device of making fun of his personal quirks -- say, his worship of a snake-deity, or his anarchistic philosophy -- the Spanish Alan Moore parody does 'em one better by spinning into all-out-surrealism: their Moore wears a blue bowler hat which he can move using telekinesis, at one point dons a Guy Fawkes mask, V for Vendetta style, and devours a copy of From Hell, for reasons unknown.

    Mostly, we're just excited to hear Alan Moore referred to as a "celebrity."
