30 Rock Is Over and All We Have Left Is a Tub of Melting Ben & Jerry’s Yogurt

If last night’s finale of 30 Rock left you feeling a little bit unsatisfied, get used to it: the show has now been cemented in history with a Ben & Jerry’s flavor that was unveiled during the last episode, and let’s just say that it’s not Americone Dream. It’s no Late Night Snack, either. It’s not even Cherry Garcia, that ol’ pun.

You want to know what you’ll be eating through your tears during a marathon session of whatever NBC is playing on Thursday nights now? (We believe it’s that new show, “Man With Face in His Hands,” correct?)

Frozen Greek yogurt? Really? Isn’t it bad form to create a flavor and name it after a character who would never eat said flavor, and would probably stand against frozen yogurt on principle? (There’s definitely a clip out there. Internet, find it!) We’re pretty positive this is a retaliation for the show’s shout-outs to Carvel, McFlurries and all those Jane Krakowski web commercials for Breyer’s.

On the other hand, at least lemon-flavor FroYogurt, like Liz Lemon, isn’t trying to pretend it’s something that it’s not. Unlike you, FroYo Phish Food, which has remained untouched in our freezer, a silent testament to our refusal to be taken in by the frozen yogurt industrial complex. Blurgh.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
