Unlike Mila Kunis, Justin Timberlake and Linda Hamilton, Scarlett Johansson has declined her YouTube invite to the Nov. 10 Marine Corps Ball — doing so with the utmost graciousness.

The Daily Show put an ingenious reel together of CNN's Don Lemon expressing bewilderment at various on-air quirks and soft-news segments (stuff like how much it would cost to enroll in the fictional Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry or a guy who dresses as a devil to illustrate just how hot it is outside).
