Talking Shit

Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers Are More Alike Than You Think

One of the greatest sporting events in the US takes place this weekend -- and we're not talking about the Puppy Bowl. As cute as those canines are, we'll prob skip them for the Super Bowl, or as Stephen Colbert calls it, Superb Owl.

And while it's awesome to see manly men in tight spandex roll around on the floor after a pigskin ball, some of us are more into important things, like million dollar commercials and the music spectacle that is the halftime show. This year, cock-sock donners Red Hot Chili Peppers and the ever-so-sultry Bruno Mars will be performing. "But they have nothing in common," you may be whining. But no, in fact, we came up with six ways they are alike. Take a gander, sports fans.
