QUICK-TIME GALLERY: The 7 Things We Most 'LIKE' Today

By Michael Cavna


1. FAVORITE FAUX POSTER: "TOY STORY 3"
The Shiznit presents its take on how the movie posters should really read for the Best Picture Nominees for the 2011 Oscars. Our favorite faux poster: "Toy Story 3"...

"I come to bury the Comics Magazine Association of America, not to praise it.

"The evil that mysterious self-censoring publishing associations do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones -- so let it be with the CCMA."


7. FAVORITE TACO BELL CARTOON: MIKE LUCKOVICH
Reports of a legal beef against Taco Bell over its alleged lack of meat in its "beef products" was too good to pass up. Fortunately, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution cartoonist serves up this satiric red meat...
