1. Tracy Morgan Is Back (Kind Of)!
Tracy Morgan made his first public appearance this morning on NBC's Today show since his near-fatal car accident last June. "Bones heal, but the loss of my friend will never heal," the comedian told Matt Lauer, referring to fellow comedian Jimmy Mack, who died when a Walmart truck collided into Morgan's tour bus. "I love comedy. I'll never stop loving her. I love comedy and I can't wait to get back to her, but right now my goal is just to heal and get better because I'm not 100 percent yet, I'm not," he explained later in the interview. "And when I'm there, you'll know it. I'll get back to making you laugh. I promise you."
Tracy Morgan's Today Show interview is a great way to kick off your week crying.

3. Caitlyn Jenner Is An Inspiration To Transgender People With First Rate Stylists Everywhere
The former Olympic athlete and current reality star formerly known as Bruce Jenner makes her premier appearance as a Caitlyn Jenner on the cover of the July issue of Vanity Fair. The issue's photo spread, taken by legendary celebrity photographer Annie Leibowitz, seem destined to stir up a lot of controversy with culture warriors and confusion with people who don't think they could find 65-year-old transgender people attractive.

Caitlyn Jenner is my new favorite person solely because her debut totally upstaged Kim Kardashian's pregnancy announcement.

4. Millennials, Gods Don't Believe In Each Other
According to a new survey from the Pew Research Center, Millennials appear to be the least religious generation in more than half a century. "There is just so much negative press about a lot of issues, especially when we look at issues like homosexuality," Professor Leslie Long of Oklahoma City University told USA Today. "Often the church comes across very negative, and what we know about this generation is that's not as big an issue to them as it was to their parents." The feeling seems to be mutual. Considering how bleak the job market has been for this generation, it seems that they're not such a big issue for God either.
Ew, millennials are so gross with their intuitive understanding of technology and inclusive attitudes towards gay people.— Siobhan Thompson (@vornietom) May 25, 2015
5. 'Game Of Thrones' Returns To Its Roots Of Being Awesome Instead Of Depressing
Last night's episode of Game of Thrones is being called the best of the season, and possibly the best of series so far, featuring what is certainly one the most epic and engrossing mass battle scenes in television history. On top of that, nobody got raped, and we didn't have to spend any time in Dorne. All in all, a vast improvement over the past few episodes.
I came into work 2 hours early today to practice talking about Game of Thrones.
