For the first time in over 60 years, Easter and April Fools' Day are on the same day, creating the rare EasterFools' Day holiday.
To celebrate, former NASA-JPL engineer/current science YouTube star Mark Rober (previously) went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to demonstrate some easy pranks for this rare double holiday. For example, he fills hollow chocolate bunnies with broccolini and calls them "Brocco-Bunny" and puts Brussels sprouts on sticks and then dips them in melted chocolate, creating "Brussels Pops."
What he does with mayonnaise is unforgivable. And the kids they give these EasterFools' "treats" to are surely scarred for life.
FYI: the next EasterFools' Day happens in 2029. Read the rest
Jimmy Kimmel turned 50 recently, the age when men and women are encouraged to get their first colonoscopy. Instead of having the exam done privately, he chose to do it on camera in the hopes of encouraging more people to get screened.
Katie Couric asked to join Kimmel to the hospital because she's passionate about this cause. In fact, after her husband died of colon cancer at age 42, Couric went on national television herself and had a colonoscopy. After it aired, there was a 20% increase in the screenings. That jump has been called the "Couric effect." Now they're hoping for a similar outcome, ie. the "Kimmel effect."
Yes, you do get to see up Kimmel's ass but it's not (too) gross. It's for a good cause, and worth a watch. Read the rest
Trump supporters are more confused than ever. As you can see from these Jimmy Kimmel interviews, they think Hillary Clinton is the president of the United States. When you think of all that's been accomplished since January (nothing), no wonder they're so upset with her!
My favorite line from the clips above comes from a passionate Hillary hater, who, when asked why Clinton should be impeached, says "I'm not a political person at all, so I really have no clue." And yet she then goes on to say Hillary Clinton is worse than guns and as bad as ISIS and should definitely be impeached. Yeesh. Read the rest
On Jimmy Kimmel Live, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer talked about his work with the Trump administration.

Just as I was getting back from Burning Man, a super-funny video of an Irish family dealing with a bat flying around their kitchen, was going viral.
Tadhg Fleming, the family's son, captured the chaotic moment in a video he's calling "Bat Dad." Tadhg makes comedy videos but this one wasn't staged. He noticed his dad, Derry, trying to catch the flying mammal with a small towel and started filming. It's Tadhg's yelling and screaming "commentary" that really makes the clip.
Now the newly-famous Fleming family of Kerry, Ireland has been interviewed by Jimmy Kimmel, in the kitchen where it all went down.
(Be sure to watch to the end for a special surprise.) Read the rest
Papa-to-be and Serena Williams' sweetie Alexis Ohanian shared his favorite post from Reddit, the site he co-founded, on Tuesday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Nope, it's not the one that shows the dog that looks like William H. Macy (though that's impressive).
It's a heartwarming one about a man whose vehicle broke down and, well, watch the clip.

As if Game of Thrones Emilia Clarke (Khaleesi) wasn't amazing enough, she's just revealed yet another talent: her perfect Valley girl impersonation. After talking to Jimmy Kimmel about ghosts she encountered while shooting Terminator: Genisys in New Orleans, she explains how she disguised herself before heading off to Home Depot at 3am. Part of the disguise was her perfect Valley girl accent. All I can say is, totally awesome!
