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.)
