Jennifer Garner’s Instagram is so good that I can understand why people think it’s a company behind it – there are definitely celebrities that have teams for their social media. Jen runs a smaller operation, just her and her assistant, Maureen Grosser, who is in self-isolation with the Jennifer and her kids. (Not Ben, who is busy with his daily pap stroll.) Maureen wasn’t hired for that specifically, she’s worked for Jen for 7 years, but she was a film major and can edit videos. She’s probably the one who came up with Jen’s Pretend Cooking Show.
So many celebrities are joining TikTok right now, from Bill Nye to Hailee Steinfeld to Gordon Ramsay. We all need new ways to entertain ourselves, but what happens after the self-isolation eases and we all go back out into the world? Will TikTok be a graveyard of abandoned accounts? Like a Quarantine Time Capsule?
Is it Thursday? Who can be sure?
The Ringer rated Rick Dalton’s best movies, accounting for about 19 fictional fake roles
I think Rick Dalton is Leo’s best work, which is not to be confused with the movie he was hottest in: The Departed. I said what I said! (Lainey: WHAT?! He’s doing the same thing in that movie that he’s done in all his movies for the last decade!)
Charlie Puth is… eight years old. How can we ever look at him the same way again?
Sarah reviewed Tiger King the other day and her assessment is bang-on, it’s f-cking bonkers. I’m just glad we aren’t close to Halloween – this is what everyone’s homemade Joe Exotic costumes would look like.
Eating dinner at 4:30 just feels right.
I now understand why retired people eat dinner so early.— Ashley Nicole Black (@ashleyn1cole) March 26, 2020
There’s a lot of snacking happening right now (no judgement) and of course crackers are part of the list. If you enjoy a Triscuit every now and again, read this thread. It’s not related to a celebrity but I swear I had no idea where it was going. (The records were destroyed? WTF.) This is a self-isolation accomplishment.
OK, buckle up. I wanna talk to you about Triscuit. pic.twitter.com/Tg7334OSbc— Sage Boggs (@sageboggs) March 26, 2020
Several years ago I was at a party (BRAG!), and I spotted a box of Triscuits. I asked everyone, "What does the word 'Triscuit' mean? It's clearly based on the word "BISCUIT," but what does the "TRI" mean?" (I'm great at parties.)— Sage Boggs (@sageboggs) March 26, 2020
The consensus was that "TRI" means three. Maybe "three layers" or "three ingredients." No one knew for sure, though, so I Googled it. But here's the thing -- Google didn't seem to have an official answer, either. Just more guesses.— Sage Boggs (@sageboggs) March 26, 2020
So we went straight to the source. We emailed Nabisco. And the response we got a few days later shook us to the core. Here it is: pic.twitter.com/Ks1gmaIQXj— Sage Boggs (@sageboggs) March 26, 2020
"The "TRI" does not mean 3." How... how do they know what it DOESN'T mean, but NOT know what it DOES mean? HOW??— Sage Boggs (@sageboggs) March 26, 2020
Also, "No business records survived"? What the HELL happened at the Triscuit factory? Did the building explode? Did someone run out of the doors and yell "It doesn't mean THREE!" right before perishing in a giant blaze?— Sage Boggs (@sageboggs) March 26, 2020
I was baffled. And I couldn't stand not knowing. So I did a little sleuthing online, and stumbled on some early Triscuit advertisements. Take a look at these bad boys: pic.twitter.com/jbeBUmjeCF— Sage Boggs (@sageboggs) March 26, 2020
In the early 1900's, Triscuit was run out of Niagara Falls. And their big selling point? Being "baked by electricity." They were "the only food on the market prepared by this 1903 process." Look at the lightning bolts! And that's when it clicked--— Sage Boggs (@sageboggs) March 26, 2020
