A mid-afternoon breather after a morning full of actual news: We now direct your attention to this suitable-for-framing Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo photo, which apparently is being taken as a right cross to the jaw of one of Tony Romo's exes, "sexy vegetarian" Carrie Underwood. Regardless, a photo funny. In related news, everyone else seems to think that history-making (?) Jessica Simpson song to which we linked a few weeks back is pretty good, including Billboard and not-online reviews from Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly. Apparently, they just haven't listened to it yet.--Robert Wilonsky
