The boys of
Top Chef were noticeably absent from the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Red Carpet last night, but Padma Lakshmi and Gail Simmons happily accepted the excuse to dress up. Even though we all knew Top Chef wasn’t going to win Outstanding Reality Competition (although, to be fair, none of us predicted them losing out to The Voice, either… really?), Padma and Gail (and Gail’s baby bump) dutifully donned some designer dresses, got their hair and makeup done, and took a bunch of pictures anyway. Check out the Top Chef prom below.
There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
#8 - Muslim Hands
"As the Quran says: 'Whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind,'" Obama trolls via a press statement. "I believe
Muslim Hands fulfills this mission by providing much-needed emergency relief to my... I mean... our friends in the Muslim world."
#7 - People for the American Way
Just because: George Soros. Liberals. Trump's head would explode.
#6 - NYC Bankruptcy Assistance Project
Obama releases a statement: "I know how much
experience you have with bankruptcy, Donald, so I figured this would be close to your heart."
#5 - National Council for Problem Gambling
Obama could ask to meet with Trump in the lobby of the Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
"I'm giving this $5 million check to NCPG, you know, to help people stop blowing all their money at casinos," the president would say.
#4 - Article II Super PAC
ART2 is a super PAC that runs print ads about how Obama's birth certificate forger can run but he can't hide. So yeah, this is a living, breathing "birther" super PAC.
A donation to this PAC would be the equivalent of Obama telling Trump and the birthers, once and for all: "I'm so sure I was born here that I will give you five mil for no real reason. The birth certificate's already out there. Come at me, guys."
He could also just give the $5 million to birther queen Orly Taitz's foundation.
#3 - Institute for Justice
Obama could choose this
libertarian legal organization who famously defended an Atlantic City resident from Trump's attempt to use eminent domain to steal her home so he could expand his hotel's limousine parking lot.
"As a successful businessman, we all know how much you value private property," Obama could explain the choice as Trump forks the $5 million over.
#2 - Kids in the Middle
Obama could get Trump to give the $5 million to
this charity that works with children involved in divorce.
"As you know, Donald, kids involved in (sometimes multiple) lengthy divorces deserve to be helped," Obama says in a meeting with Trump. "I just don't want to see any more children suffer like so many of yours did."
#1 - Kenya Education Fund
an educated Kenya," Obama says with a sly grin. And the birthers go wild.
