The Oscars pizza delivery guy finally got his tip Monday. Ellen DeGeneres handed Edgar Martirosyan $1,000 during her chat show. About $600 of that, she said, was the cash she collected from celebrity audience members at the 86th Academy Awards ceremony Sunday when she brought Martirosyan on stage with his pizzas. Martirosyan, who owns Big Mama's and Papa's Pizzeria in Hollywood with his brother, recalled being told that he was delivering the pies to producers and writers during the ceremony.

Calling it "tomato soup in a bread bowl" a "(bleeping) casserole" and "a corpse made of sandpaper," Stewart railed on one of Chicago's biggest points of pride.

As a proud Iowa alum, I follow the university on Facebook. Today, it posed this question: "What comes to mind when you think of Chicago," presumably because the Hawkeyes take on Northern Illinois at Soldier Field this weekend for the season opener. (Go Hawks!) Among the many predictable "pizza," "Cubs" and "Blues Brothers" answers were these gems worth sharing: -Glen Ellyn... as in, some sorority girl telling me she's from Chicago when she's actually from Glen Ellyn - Lots of unemployed peeps - Pizza and that president guy - a...
