Merry Christmas, everyone! Hope your day has been filled with only a minuscule amount of vomiting, screaming and other kinds of embarrassments.

So cheesy and sentimental was last night’s Mariah Carey-directed movie for the Hallmark Channel, A Christmas Melody, that it featured a scene in which Lacey Chabert’s character cried over broken tree ornaments.

The New York State Young Republicans—not to be confused with the New York Young Republicans, whose website is much nicer—is a scrappy group.

Welcome to Would U?, an academic forum in which I share my gross crush of the week and ask if you, too, would bang that person.
