Rachel Dratch definitely shows her readers what a little determination, good will, and positivity can do for you no matter what stage of life you may be kicking through. A splash of comedic relief along the way never hurts either.

Nicholas Ferroni

As someone who's received many "breakup" letters, emails and even texts, I do consider myself somewhat of an expert. It wasn't until my historical studies at Rutgers that I realized that America was founded on the ultimate breakup letter in history: the Declaration of Independence.

The 10 Commandments of Intern Abuse

Kurt Braunohler

I'm a firm believer in the motivational, educational and dollar-saving power of intern abuse. In my new IFC comedy game show BUNK, we actually use our intern Patrick as a human timer -- giving contestants the time it takes for him to wade through a bag of broken glass for a razor blade.

In high school I dropped out of gym so I could take "bowling" online. I'm raising my blood pressure just thinking about stretching. This activity has the distinct possibility of turning me Republican.
