Jimmy Kimmel got serious in his monologue last night, where he talked about how his newborn son was born with a heart defect. Jimmy’s wife Molly gave birth to their second child two weeks ago. His name is Billy, and when he was just three days old, he had to undergo open heart surgery at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.
He said Billy appeared to be healthy at first, but then one of the nurses noticed something wrong, and when they looked into it, they discovered that he had a HOLE in the wall of his heart.
Fortunately, the surgery went well and Billy is already home with his parents. Jimmy thanked a long list of doctors and care providers, and then asked for people to donate to the Children’s Hospital.
Jimmy‘s show will be guest hosted by his friends this week while he is on paternity leave.
McDonald’s just invented something called the “Frork,” which is a little red plastic handle with three fries into to make a fork.
It’s part of their pitch for their fancier “Signature” sandwiches. Apparently the sandwiches are so good that you’ll want to use the French fry fork to scoop up, “every last bite” of the sauces.
If you want a Frork, you can get one by buying a Signature sandwich starting on Friday.

April the giraffe’s baby boy finally has a new name, and it is…Tajiri.
The winning name was “Allysa’s choice,” referring to Allysa Swilley, the giraffe keeper at Animal Adventure Park. According to Yahoo, Swilley led the care of April for the 16 months of her pregnancy. With the help of other park officials, she chose the name Tajiri.
“Tajiri is a word in Swahili that means hope. The name also stands for confidence, which our calf is — very, very confident.”
And don’t worry, if you have trouble remembering or pronouncing Tajiri’s name, the calf will be nicknamed “Taj.”
