Hot Clicks: Manti Te'o hoax gets Taiwanese animation treatment

Thanks For Checking In
Maria Menounos, Stacy Keibler

As regular readers know, I'm a big fan of Twitter. However, one of the worst things about it is the #Humblebrag gimmick. Uncreative people love to send you that tired reply no matter what you tweet. But make no mistake about this item. It is a full-on brag. When I got into the office this morning and logged onto my computer, I had an e-mail from Maria Menounos, the host of Extra. Apparently, Menounos, Stacy Keibler and Kate Upton had some sort of hot chick convention last night and sent a few pictures for Hot Clicks Nation, such as the one above in which Menounos and Keibler show their loyalties for Sunday's Ravens-Patriots game. Menounos also sent in this photo and this photo for your enjoyment.
It Was Only A Matter Of Time

Speaking Of The Lovely Lady Of The Day
I was pleasantly surprised by the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the very special Lovely Lady of the Day in today's A.M. Hot Clicks. Michael Riley, of Portland, even said, "Lennay Kekua is beautiful! Thanks for the post!" Meanwhile, Doug, of Chicago, said, "Jimmy, you have to have a count of the number of people who send an e-mail letting you know there's an issue with LLOD image today." I did get a few e-mails from people who said they refreshed the page a few times, but eventually got the joke. The fact is, I only received one negative e-mail from this angry gentleman.
