It wasn't that long ago that we brought you the shocker story from Alabama that school officials there put a 5-year-old girl on suicide and homicide watch after she pointed her crayon at another student and made a small gun noise. Alabama schools want you to be sure that your kids are safe!
Immediately after hosts Fey and Poehler did their Bill Cosby routine -- their most talked-about bit of the night -- comedian Barry Sobel's Facebook page lit up with dozens of folks posting that the duo did his routine, almost verbatim.
More than a week after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, American comedians have made it clear that they stand with their fellow satirists in France. There were others who joined the condemnation as well, and not just from comedy.
