The gang at is coming to MTV, and they’ve cleverly quipped that “it’s like the internet but on television.”  And you know they know what they’re doing, too, because they spent their whole budget on models and ice cream.  This is the perfect combination.  It’s like when somebody invented the bacon cheeseburger. Do you think they cried? We think they cried. [College Humor]
