Keegan-Michael Key (@KeeganMKey) once did the nicest thing for Johnny Mac that will never be forgotten. The story.

Blair Socci on how we know who she is.
And Johnny Mac winds up deep diving on the IMDB of Paul Rodriguez.
Bob’s Burgers supposedly airs its 200th episode tonight. But ask yourself – have you ever seen Bob’s Burgers? Have you ever met anyone who has seen Bob’s Burgers? Why when I typed this did Apple switch it to Bob’s Berger’s if it is really a show. Oh we’ve seen the promos and the artwork, but does the show itself actually exist?
