We can’t really mock the self-mocking William Shatner for his miraculous ability to keep earning money as a celebrity, sometimes even by acting, so instead we’ll roll our eyes at the dorks who are paying $150 and up for videotaped footage of Shatner reciting a personalized greeting into a video camera as he autographs a photo.

NBC’s TODAY show has a new series called “Make Your Life Better TODAY,” and they’re asking viewers to send in their personal finance questions so they can address them on-air: “Whether you’re single or married; young or old, we want to know your concerns about debt, retirement, investments, savings and more.” If you fit one of the following scenarios, they might even want to bring you on the show to find out who your baby daddy is. Or maybe so Ellen can cry at you? Something like that—all that daytime TV sort of blurs together.
