Guess the Celebrities: Alison Brie’s Boobs Vs. Joel McHale’s Butt

Photo: Joel McHale with Alison Brie on August 1, 2011 in Los Angeles.

Community star Alison Brie recently tweeted,

Comparing close-up shots of my cleavage and @joelmchale’s butt crack and they’re eerily identical. #buttboobies

Donald Glover posted the uncouth snapshots in question to his Twitter (NSFW) for your—yes, your—perusal. In one photo: Miss Brie’s comely gazoombas; in the other, suspiciously babylike butt-cleavage, belonging to The Soup‘s very own Joel McHale. The similarities are uncanny!

But which is which? Can you solve the puzzle? (This is totally like Highlights for Kids!)

The probably-not-safe-for-work images are after the cut.

Cute or Creepy? Unlikely ‘Community’ Romances, As Depicted by an Illustrator of Kids’ Books

Community is a sitcom on NBC! It's about a community college!It sure seems like Community‘s Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) has entertained brief romances with just about everybody on the show, including Britta (Gillian Jacobs), Annie (Alison Brie), and nearly every attractive guest-starring lady.

Troy (Donald Glover) had a thing with Annie, too, just for a hot Season One second—but we all know Troy only has eyes for his main broseph Abed (Danny Pudi). And then there’s Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown), who has had dalliances with her former Spanish teacher, Señor Chang (Ken Jeong) and, even more notably, with Theo Huxtable.

How can any casual viewer follow Community‘s sordid social graph? But more importantly, how will the writers add any more will-they-won’t-they frisson? Isn’t Community starting to feel a little bit like the fourth season of Friends? Hasn’t every romantic avenue already been exhausted? IS THERE NO ONE LEFT TO SLEEP WITH?

Children’s book illustrator Julieta Colás is here to help! She has thought long, hard, and deeply about this, and has considered new romantic configurations from every angle. What I’m coyly trying to say is, Colás drew us a bunch of fanfic, basically.

Here, then, are some unexplored (or underexplored) Community couplings (via BuzzFeed):

If Jeff and Britta finally got together

The Married Couple.” What if Jeff and Britta finally paired up? Britta espouses a lot of fake feminist rhetoric, so you know she won’t be the one making breakfast. Also, look! She’s drinking tea! Nice touch, Julieta—you’re a true fangirl.

If Troy and Britta got together

The Cougar.” WHAT. Gillian Jacobs is literally eleven months older than Donald Glover. The fact that she plays an Oldy McOlderson on the show (she’s 28! She’s 28 in real life!) kind of skeeves me, especially when both sophomores are played by 27-year olds. In other news: Britta and Troy should totally hook up. Yes.

Ken Jeong Was Hilarious 13 Years Ago

Oh, come on, I know. He’s funny now, too.

Here’s a 28-year-old Ken Jeong (The Hangover Part II, NBC’s Community) trying his hand at stand-up way back in 1998. What an excellent find! The clip might be NSFW, unless you have a cool boss, or headphones.

Now, at first I was all, “1998? That wasn’t very long ago.” Then I did some math on my fingers, realized that the majority of Beliebers were born in 1998, and stifled a tiny sob as I felt the icy grip of death clutching my left shoulder.

Speaking of death and dying…! Not only is Dr. Ken Jeong, M.D. oodles funnier than 1996 Seth Rogen but — I honestly believe this — Ken could have revolutionized comedy with his unexpected brand of “doctor humor.” (Watch for the hilariously unfunny “You Might Be a Diabetic” bit.)

‘Community’ Goes Girl-on-Girl

No, a Britta and Annie hook up is not going down any time soon, but these photos of various cast members of the verge of doin’ it were posted to a Community producer’s Twitter yesterday and they’re pretty funny and definitely sexier than those topless Justin Bieber pics.

Too bad these shots were staged for LOLs. How great would it be if the season ended with a D.Glover/Chevy Chase make out sesh?

Hilary Duff is Playing a Mean Girl on Community

Hilary Duff is guest starring on an upcoming episode of Community (never seen it, but I loooooove Donald Glover’s rapz), and like every time an actress with a reputation for being sweet does a guest part on a show, she’s playing the bitch. C’mon. It’s so true. I can already hear her explaining the part on a giggly Leno interview: “It’s fun playing the mean girl because that’s so not me. It was a real challenge! It was so hard to look at those actresses and say those things because I like them so much!”


Anyway, here’s a sneak preview of Hilary on the show. I can’t tell if she sucks at acting or if I’m just really tired of this high school lady bully character.

One thing that did make me laugh? This line: “Why name your daughter Megan? Are you stocking up for a bitch shortage?”

Donald Glover is Magic

You guys watch Community? OK, well, it’s good and you should watch it if you don’t, but if you do, you know Donald Glover, who plays Troy. During his downtime, Don recorded a mixtape under the name Childish Gambino and released it on his website for free. And it’s sick. His lyrics are tight and funny and his skill level is surprisingly good.

Rapping over bands like Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective, Childish Gambino tells us what it’s like to be the most fashionable young TV actor in the game. On my favorite track, “My Girls”, he also gives some insight to what it’s like to date a dude whose job lends to a player lifestyle. You can download parts 1 and 2 of his mixtape “I Am Just a Rapper” here and here.
