In what we can only guess is an attempt to put together the most effing amazing awards show ever, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are set to co-host the 70th Annual Golden Globes. These funny ladies only get funnier when they’re together. Remember Tina photo-bombing Amy at the Globes last year? Or the 2011 Emmys? Or Baby Mama? Or SNL?

Julia Sweeney has come a long way since the days of "Pat," the ambiguously gendered character she played on Saturday Night Live. Her personal tales of overcoming cancer, denouncing God, and adopting a child from China have been the substance of her material since 1995. Her recent TED talk, however, brought Pat back to mind. Sweeney is totally adorable, so the video is worth watching in and of itself. [video:
