The answer is TURKEY!

More Patriots Controversy

It seems like the New England Patriots are magnets for controversy.

The whole Deflategate thing is finally winding down, but now the 10 & 0 Pats have another tempest brewing.

At least this one isn't about them. It happened to them.

They're calling it Whistlegate.

During Monday's game between the Patriots and the Buffalo Bills, a referee blew a whistle that ended a play that looked like it might have resulted in a Patriots touchdown. After a huddle of about 15 minutes (okay, that's an exaggeration), the refs announced that the whistle had been "inadvertent."

And the football world goes mad! At least this will give folks something to chew on for the rest of the season, right?

"A New Classic for a New Generation"

There's been a lot of buzz surrounding Creed, aka Rocky VII.

In this one, the son of Apollo Creed turns to Rocky Balboa to manage him as a boxer.

Sort of putting Rocky in the Mickey spot.

And putting Sylvester Stallone back in the spotlight after a pretty good stretch out of it.

They're marketing this as your Thanksgiving movie.

Might not be a bad idea to plan to see it. Sure beats Black Friday shopping...

See why critics are calling #CREED "an absolute knockout." 7pm screenings Tuesday, everywhere Wednesday:

Take Off the Football Helmet, Put on the Dunce Cap

Johnny Manziel - the NFL quarterback who'd prefer to be known as Johnny Football - was named the starting QB for the Cleveland Browns for the remainder of the season.

That was last week.

Yesterday, he lost the starting position.

He also lost the back-up position.

He's now the Number 3 QB, and all because of video that surfaced showing him partying Manziel-style after being named the starting QB.

When his coach handed the spot to him, he did tell him to be on his best behavior.

Looks like maybe that didn't sink in...

Hello, Miss Piggy

Adele has taken over the entertainment world as the year closes out.

She was on Saturday Night Live this weekend, she pulled that prank with Adele impersonators on the BBC, and her song "Hello" is doing phenomenally well.

So well, it's leap-frogging over anything Taylor Swift did in 2015 as the most-parodied video of the year.

Look who's taking a swipe at it now.

Miss Piggy, in a bold-faced promotional move for The Muppets on ABC.

Burying the Star Wars Hatchet

Jimmy Kimmel Live has a long-standing running gag suggesting that Harrison Ford is feuding with Chewbacca from the Star Wars franchise.

Something to do with a woman - "a long time ago... in a galaxy far, far away," says Jimmy.

Last night, it looks like a near tragedy managed to bring the two old friends together.

Thank you, Jimmy Kimmel!

"Never Talk About Sex, Politics or Religion"

This may be the most awkward exchange ever between two people who make their living with comedy.

Stephen Colbert had Bill Maher on his show the other night, and the discussion turned to religion.

Stephen's a practicing Catholic - "doesn't mean I'm good at it," says Stephen.

Bill was raised Catholic, but is now non-religious.

Somehow, Stephen tried to convince Bill to return to the Church.

I'm pretty sure he was kidding, but Bill didn't seem to get that.

And that's when it all turned awkward.

Check it out. Maybe it's just me?

To Infinity & Beyond... Just Not on an Airplane

This is a very odd story.

TSA agents at the Orlando, Florida airport confiscated a Buzz Lightyear toy because it looked like a weapon.

It's a plastic grabber - you squeeze the handle, a gripper at the end of the toy closes. In the middle is a squared-off lime green space ray gun.

A young boy from Pennsylvania had purchased it at Disneyworld.

And because the family didn't have anything other than carry-on luggage, they had to leave it behind.

I'm all for tight security when it comes to air travel, but is this over the top? What do you think?

An Amazing Story

Wyatt is a 12-year-old autistic boy who loves the Blue Man Group.

His right arm was amputated shortly after he was born.

His wish was to have a robotic Blue Man Group arm.

The folks at Limbitless Solutions made that happen with a low-cost arm produced on a 3D printer, and had the folks at Blue Man Group present the arm to Wyatt.

Watch this amazing video from a couple of weeks ago, and tell me you don't tear up...

When you take Blue Man Group, Limbitless Solutions and an amazing boy named Wyatt - magic happens. How do you Dare to Live in Full Color?

The Lost Star Wars Audition Tapes

You can bet that when it was announced that JJ Abrams would be directing the upcoming Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens, he was buried in audition requests and tapes.

On Saturday Night Live this weekend, he shared some of those tapes with the world.

You never know who's going to show up when a part in a potential blockbuster is on the line, right?

Very funny clips - with some very interesting cameos too.
