Do you know about Celebrities Read Mean Tweets? It’s this thing where Jimmy Kimmel gets celebrities to read mean tweets other people have written about them.

So far there are six episodes online, and they’re all fun and worth watching while you’re procrastinating from filing your taxes/cleaning the toilet/having That Difficult Conversation with your girlfriend. Episode #6 features Matt Damon, George Clooney, Cate Blanchett, and—curiously, at least to me—Bob Balaban. I mean, Bob Balaban! What’s not to love? The fact that he had an uncredited cameo in City Slickers II? That he’s been married to the same woman since 1977? That he’s the author of six kids’ books featuring a bionic dog named McGrowl? (Thanks, Wikipedia.) Why would anyone ever want to tweet anything mean about that adorable, ageless punim?

Also in episode #6: Sarah Silverman reads about someone wanting to pee on her face.
