Think the dark world of crystal meth distribution is a seedy business? Apparently that's nothing compared to the sordid world of black market joke selling.
Just ask Jimmy Fallon.
The comic and his "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" team debuted a "Breaking Bad" parody they dubbed "Joking Bad" on Wednesday night -- and it immediately went viral, People reports.
The nearly 13-minute digital short features real life new father Fallon, 38, looking alarmingly like Bryan Cranston's Walter White, who is told he has no more than six months left on his late night show.
In faux despair, the host decides to sell jokes on the black market with the help of announcer Steve Higgins, who amusingly channels Aaron Paul's foul-mouthed character on the acclaimed AMC show in the midst of its final season.
The duo get high on Pop Rocks candy as they compile jokes involving everyone from One Direction to Anthony Weiner, but the scheme eventually backfires when they realize he has no jokes left for his own show.
The pitch perfect parody includes cameos from Bob Odenkirk in character as sketchy lawyer Saul Goodman, as well as "Breaking Bad" stars Paul and Cranston heckling Fallon from the "Late Night" audience. Don't miss Cranston throwing a pizza in mock disgust.
Wexford's own Christina Aguilera says that although she went to Rwanda to help others, she ended up helping herself, the AP reports.
The 32-year-old singer visited Rwanda in June for a hunger relief effort. She said the experience helped her ground herself.
"It came at a time in my life when I really needed to be far removed from anything to do with work or being on camera," the Grammy winner said in a recent interview. "It came at a time in my life when I needed to sort of experience what's going on with the world beyond entertainment."
Aguilera has been a spokesperson for Yum! Brands' World Hunger Relief effort since 2009, and has also traveled to Haiti and Guatemala. She said being a mother -- she has a 5-year-old son Max -- made her feel more empathetic for those suffering from hunger around the world.
"It's so sad to think there's nothing that sets any of us apart," she said. "And when you go into the field, you really see that and feel that we're all one in the same, it's just we're born under different circumstances, and it's sad and I don't understand why, but I feel what I feel and I did what I can."
On her Rwanda trip, "The Voice" mentor served food to children and visited refugee camps, which she called "one of the most difficult moments."
"They had to escape everything and everybody they knew and loved, and it's just a lot to really open yourself up and feel all that," she said, on the brink of tears. "And you just want to help out in whatever way that you can, and obviously I get emotional about it when talking about it, but I think it's important to feel those things."
Fox News Channel is eliminating one of Shepard Smith's two daily newscasts and putting him in charge of a breaking news team where he will travel more to stories and break into other Fox shows with special reports, the AP reports.
His 7 p.m. Eastern newscast will end this fall, but Smith will continue anchoring a weekday 3 p.m. newscast. Fox Chairman Roger Ailes said the network is "no longer bound by a traditional evening format conceived in the 1960s."
Fox said Thursday it is building a new studio, the Fox News Deck, for Smith's revamped afternoon show. Instead of a nightly newscast, he'll do live cut-ins on Fox's talk shows with breaking news.
Fox isn't saying what it will air at 7 p.m.
