A guide to what we’re barely putting up with this week.
Krispy Kreme handing out a free Ghostbusters-inspired or Halloween-themed doughnut to anyone wearing a costume in-store on Halloween. Putting on a costume to get a free ’80s movie-themed doughnut is significantly less embarrassing than waking up early to rummage through Krispy Kreme’s garbage to get a free ’80s movie-themed donut on November 1.
Andy Cohen’s completely unnecessary second (yes, second) memoir: The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look At A Shallow Year. Only the man who thought the Real Housewives Of Orange County was interesting enough to merit a three-part reunion would think his own life was interesting enough to merit a memoir a year.
Beyoncé, living proof that not everyone should try bangs. Only a week before Halloween, Beyoncé gives the world yet another great Beyoncé costume idea to go with “Single Ladies” Beyoncé, Bonnie And Clyde Beyoncé, and Obsessed Beyoncé: Bad Bangs Beyoncé.
NBC’s Constantine. The comic book show so boring you didn’t even know it was based on a comic book.
McDonald’s disconcerting new “question box” ads. Silly McDonald’s. When people want to know, “What’s in a McDonald’s hamburger?” they’re not going to ask McDonald’s. They’re going to ask something infinitely more reputable and trustworthy: the Internet.
Tyler Perry’s upcoming foray into animation, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Tough Love. Even though it’s animated, the fact that this movie doesn’t involve Tyler Perry in a fat suit and wig automatically makes it less cartoonish than every other Madea movie.
Anyone who dresses up like Ray Rice and/or his wife on Halloween. If you want to go as a horrible, offensive person for Halloween, just slaughter a unicorn and go as Taylor Swift, or flatiron some snobbery into your hair and go as Gwyneth Paltrow.
