Gin and Topics: I Heart RDJ (For Real)

Gin and TopicsBy Gini Dietrich

I did it! I managed an entire episode of Gin and Topics without Jimmy Fallon.

Either I deserve to be congratulated OR Fallon needs to step up his game. Who can get this to his people?

I need writers for Spin Sucks like Fallon has. Who wants to volunteer? You can write some super funny things and we’ll record it as podcasts and videos.

It’s the first step on your way to The Onion, Saturday Night Live, or Jimmy Fallon!

Let’s do it!

It’s not a paid gig, but the experience you’ll get working with robots who look like human beings will be worth its weight in gold. And we can be funny!

Maybe I should stick with PR.

This week’s videos are courtesy of the Dietrich clan—Mattie and Mr. D.—and yours truly. Well, and the 6,500 people who posted the RDJ video to my wall.

5. Alex Gets an Iron Man Arm. I guess it’s pretty obvious I heart RDJ, huh? No less than 6,500 people posted it to my Facebook wall. OK, that might be a slight exaggeration, but how ca you NOT love him when you watch this?

4. Baby’s First Big Sneeze. This might be the cutest thing on the Internet EVER! It’s a collection of videos of babies the first time they sneeze. You have to agree, sneezing is quite startling.

3. Roger Federer Gets Owned By a Kid. And the kid is wearing jeans. No fancy tennis clothes. Just him and his racket.

2. Princess Rap Battle. In honor of Alicia Lawrence, our Spin Sucks Inquisitee this week, we have a rap battle between Cinderella and Belle. “You have teapots for friends and your man sheds.”

1. President Obama Reads Mean Tweets. Look, I know, as Americans, we love to hate the person in charge, but no matter what you think about his politics or the fact that he wears jeans or that he likes to play golf, this is hilarious. I especially love it when he laughs at the joke that was tweeted. Thanks, Obama.

Now go outside and play! Spring has sprung!

  • Yes it was very touching what RDJ did, no argument. 
    The Princess Rap Battle is my fav  – “…choke when you make it to the balls..”  oh boy. 

    Have a great weekend!

    That Robert. He’s a good man! 🙂

  • TaraFriedlundGeissinger Swoon.

  • Digital_DRK LOL! It is pretty funny, right?

  • This was a great lineup, even w/o Fallon. (I didn’t think that was possible.)

  • What I liked most about that video was how nonchalant that little boy was. “Who am i?” when he answered “Iron Man” it was just so freaking cute! 

    Don’t even get me started on cute babies! Awww…

    Obama has a good sense of humor, you gotta give him that.

  • Kara I didn’t think it was possible, either!

  • NancyDavis He really does have a great sense of humor. I love anyone who can make fun of themselves.

  • Love them all but the rap battle had me cry-laughing. And babies have it made. They are so lucky, they can be pudgy and adorable at the same time.

  • No JImmy Fallon? The world as we know it may be ending! Happy Weekend everyone!

  • jolynndeal That’s SO TRUE! I often say, “Don’t you wish cellulite was cute on us?”

  • biggreenpen We need to have a talk with him. GOOD LUCK ON YOUR RUN!

  • Love the princess rap video, but I will admit, I do miss Jimmy Fallon…I don’t usually watch his videos unless they are in your Gin and Topics 🙂

  • I love love love love Obama SO MUCH. I could watch him read a grocery list.

    Belle FTW!! She’s always been my favorite.
