If you thought current political ads are a bit goofy, inaccurate, and accusatory, take a look at the campaign ads for Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. The Huffington Post reports that the two are set to star in The Campaign, and upcoming film where the two compete head-to-head for a spot in the U.S. House of Representatives.

If I hadn’t been so concerned about what I was going to say to the vet when the receptionist answered the phone, I would have heard the receptionist tell me loud and clear that I was through to a dental practice.

I hadn’t listened. In not listening I got everything I said wrong.

In the business I am in, of ministry and pastoral care, listening is such an important thing. I can prepare all the fancy theology and exegesis imaginable but if I don’t listen I might be getting it all wrong and embarrassing myself in the process.

She may not be an actual Catholic sister in real life but Maripat Donovan plays one of the most recognizable nuns in the world. Donovan is a Chicago native and originator of the role of "Sister" in the long-running play, Late Nite Catechism. She's one of the funniest nuns we know.

"Catholicism is Happy Days. All the other religions? Joanie Loves Chachi."

++ Join us in showing our appreciation for Catholic women religious (aka nuns or "sisters") on Thank-a-Nun Day, May 9. Click HERE to send a thank-you note online. ++

If you're part of the generation who spends half the day (or more) online, it can be painful to explain new media to those who aren't as up-to-date, aka parents.

But don't worry, Fuse has created a public service announcement called, "How to talk to your parents about Spotify."

Movers, shakers and policy makers convened over the weekend for the annual White House Correspondents Dinner (aka Nerd Prom) at the Washington Hilton.

Inside the blog we've assembled for you five memorable moments from the 2012 Nerd Prom that you don't want to miss.
