Afternoon Delight: Lady Gaga autographs a toilet, Jones makes “Buffy” soda, and an exclusive clip from “The Kids Are All Right”


It’s Comic-Con weekend, the one weekend a year where I sit in front of Twitter and watch my friends’ Tweets come in from San Diego and wish they’d gotten dysentery or something earlier in the week so I could be there in their place.

Am I just posting his review to have an excuse for another full-body Jolie shot from the movie premiere? Maybe.
