Neil Patrick Harris and his family win Halloween, again

Last year, Neil Patrick Harris posted the most adorable Halloween family photo ever, dressed as characters from The Wizard of Oz.  This year, they’re equally adorable as characters from Alice in Wonderland.  If there were ever an argument to be made in favor of same-sex marriage strengthening families, it’s that gay men make better Halloween costumes.  The above pic is from NPH’s Instagram.

If you’re gonna photobomb, do it on a major network TV event 

When I was watching the Emmys last night, I saw this guy photobombing Neil Patrick Harris during a tease for the next segment of the show, and thought it was a joke.  I thought for sure this was a bit that was going to be paid off somehow later in the show.  It wasn’t.  So the photobomb may have been a genuine accident (the photobomber was a writer on the show), OR a brilliant little moment planted in the show to give us something to talk about today.  Either way, it’s ALMOST as awkward as all those bizarre Shemar Moore backstage promos during the show (what was up with those)?
