News of the Day -- Monday, April 14

+ Need a little something to help ease you into the new work week? Check out this collection of the 50 Greatest Comedy Sketches of All Time, from Nerve and IFC.

+ Did you hear the news? There'll be extra "Lost"-y goodness for this season's finale. Yup, apparently, it's going to be a three hour finale -- played out over two nights, shown over two weeks, which is the depressing part. But hey, let's get back to the positive, a bonus hour of "Lost." I'm almost as giddy as when they offed Ana Lucia...and that was some serious giddiness.

+ Just in time for the new movie in May comes these cute Indiana Jones action figures. I wonder if Harrison Ford has a room devoted to all of his action figures and if so, are they still in the box? Just curious. Thanks to Ms. C for the Indy tip.

+ ETA: Holy cow, the David Tennant fans came out strong for the good doctor, despite a fine showing for Patrick "the top of my head is sexy" Stewart. Expect a nerd man coronation soon.

$240 worth of pudding... aww yeah.

On a completely related note, I actually know someone who purchased $240 worth of pudding. Granted it it was part of a prix fix menu, but there it was - a line item "pudding - $240." Sadly, this was, of course, before the days of camera phones.

Liz, should you need any assistance in tracking down/selecting an appropriate photo of David Tennant for the Nerd Man of the Month posting, I will happily volunteer. (incidentally, he turns 37 on Friday)
