December 4th was Jeff Bridges' birthday and while he might be forever known as The Dude, Jeff has made a pretty penny doing voice-overs. I read a pretty convincing article once in something called "a newspaper" that discussed the benefits of hiring a well-known actor to do narration for commercials. Not only does the advertiser have to pay the actor less (he doesn't show his face), but the commercial still benefits because the viewer subconsciously recognizes a famous voice. Obviously not all voice-overs have been done by famous actors, but the following people have made a name for themselves in the close-knit world of narration. Check out the unseen heroes of your favorite movies and TV shows after the jump.
Not that there's anything wrong with that. They say most fat people are jolly. I'd agree with that statement for those chubbies who embrace their weight. For most others, though, packing on the pounds is worrisome. Some study somewhere shows that the number one killer (besides Ghostface - WU TANG FOREVER!) in America is obesity. Unless you're a genetic freak or gym rat, getting fat is an eventual consequence of getting old. You get lazy, you lose motivation. But, if your goal is to avoid this fate and you're looking for a partner who won't embarrass you, check out our guide to determining if you're gf will be gluttonous in our slideshow after the jump.
Meet my friend Georgio, the human carpet. Yes, that is correct. He is a carpet and he loves to be walked all over; in the physical sense, that is. I heard of Georgio last year and had to talk to him about what he does and why he does it. He is my new carpet friend and wants you to step on him. Finally, someone I can dig my heels into without getting yelled at. You can follow Georgio and receive updates about his events on his Facebook page. Make sure you catch him at this next “performance” to take a ride on his carpet. For now, check out our full interview with the man people walk all over after the jump.
Twitter's a mixed bag; there's a lot of superfluous garbage. Many consider it to be a steady stream of textual diarrhea, it's enough to make a person give up. But, there are a few people worth following for their consistently charming and intriguing tweets. Whether it's their observational humor, unfiltered dialogue, refreshing nature, nonsensical babble, or flat-out ability to engage with his or her fans, the following 10 tweeters never disappoint. Check 'em out below and let us know if we missed any in the comments section after the jump!

I have been a Howard Stern fan since I was in diapers; I’d seen him do it all, from throwing bologna at girls mayo slathered asses, Hollyweird Squares, and not to mention our favorite Wack Packers, such as Beetlejuice, Jeff the Drunk, and Blue Iris (R.I.P). But what about all those other people who work for him that we rarely hear about? Listen to Howard's Media Producer, J.D. Harmeyer as he talks about his experiences.
