Pizza guy who delivered to Academy Awards collects $1,000 tip

Yeah, what about that pizza guy who delivered those pies to the Academy Awards ceremony Sunday night? TMZ reported that he’d left the building a much more famous man but without the tip money the celebs had collected in Pharrell Williams’ hat.

The pizza guy did appear on Ellen DeGeneres’ show today, though, and DeGeneres was extra generous by adding to the $600 hat tip to make it a cool even grand.

Phrasing matters. Evidently Ezra Klein hasn’t quite figured that out yet:

Actually, I think a lot of men who don’t take birth control should know these facts too: http://t.co/XT0ck8oaUW

— Ezra Klein (@ezraklein) September 19, 2014

What kind of men is Ezra hanging out with?

@ezraklein men "take" birth control?

— righteous axe (@righteousaxe) September 19, 2014

Some men take birth control? Ok. https://t.co/kgwWNQRH0M

— Kathleen McKinley (@KatMcKinley) September 19, 2014

And now, the exit question that’s on everyone’s mind:

@ezraklein Are you among those who do?

‘When Bill talked, I listened!’ On D-Day, Band of Brothers actor honors hero, friend

‘When Bill talked, I listened!’ On D-Day, Band of Brothers actor honors hero, friend

http://twitter.com/#!/frankjhughes/status/474932954972434433

William “Wild Bill” Guarnere, heroic World War II paratrooper, passed away earlier this year. He was 90 years old.

Actor Frank John Hughes, who portrayed Guarnere in HBO’s “Band of Brothers,” called that role “the greatest honor of my life.” Hughes was fortunate enough to develop a close relationship with Guarnere, and today, on the 70th anniversary of D-Day, he is paying tribute to his hero and friend:

And to all the brave men who fought and died so that we could be free:

Reporter deletes tweet expressing disappointment in Sotomayor ruling

Reporter deletes tweet expressing disappointment in Sotomayor ruling

http://twitter.com/#!/irin/status/418221074682109953

The above was the follow-up tweet from MSNBC.com national reporter Irin Carmon in reference to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor issuing a temporary stay blocking the Obamacare contraception mandate.

Carmon had previously expressed deeper disappointment in Sotomayor’s decision worthy of Caesar, but saw fit to delete it:

null

The tweet shouldn’t have been deleted. It’s not as if everybody doesn’t already know which direction MSNBC “reporters” lean, and it’s not “forward.”

If there’s one thing that really sticks in Keith Olbermann’s craw, it’s sexism:

Unless he’s the one being sexist, that is:

NY Post: Comedy writers don’t make fun of Obama because he’s ‘unmockable’

NY Post: Comedy writers don’t make fun of Obama because he’s ‘unmockable’

http://twitter.com/#!/CamelbackPaul/status/503598192701632513

Editor’s note: This post has been updated to correct the wrong premise of the post. The original title of ‘This is a joke, right?’ New York Post: Comedy writers don’t make fun of Obama because he is ‘completely unmockable’ has been changed to the current title which more accurately reflects the NY Post article.

The author’s intent was erroneously mischaracterized. We regret the error and apologize to Mr. Smith. We are also including his tweets here:

http://twitter.com/#!/rkylesmith/status/503612956865994752

Mr. Smith’s article, which actually takes the entertainment industry to task for shielding Obama, can (and should) be read here.

The original post follows below as Twitchy has a policy of transparency and does not unpublish posts.

Here is the New York Post’s rationale as to why many comedy writers avoid making fun of President Obama:
