As a special surprise for her audience on Tuesday, December 11, Ellen DeGeneres invited her friend and neighbor Ashton Kutcher to join her as co-host on her daytime talk show. Kutcher seemed in great spirits, laughing about neighborly in-jokes, but about one issue he was very serious: that his two-year-old son can walk.


Apparently, Kutcher and his wife, Mila Kunis, often go for walks past Ellen's house in the morning with their dog and kids in tow. During one such excursion, Ellen happened to pop her head outside to say hello, only to observe that Kutcher's son always seemed to be riding in Kutcher's backpack instead of walking.

As Ashton tells it:

"I now have a complex about this, because I have one of those hiking backpack things, so I put him in the hiker to go down to the beach so we can actually go down the beach, otherwise it's a whole wrangling session with the kid. And then you came out and you were like, 'Oh, does he walk?' And I'm like, 'Yes! He walks!'"

Now, during morning walks, Kutcher always makes sure to take his son out of his backpack and make him walk his very best walk past Ellen's house.

Naturally, he wants to prove a point:

"So now I take him out of the thing once we get to purview of your house, and I'm like, 'Go, go! Run, little sucker!' And I'm trying to dish him along so I don't have to hear about it anymore. This kid's going to be an Olympian, man, because I'm going to be behind him like, 'To Ellen's house!'"


Ashton and Ellen have been neighbors for a long time and have developed a friendship that always makes for fun guest appearances. Earlier this year, Kutcher made a surprise appearance on the show, where he shocked Ellen with a $4 million dollar donation to her wildlife fund.

During the same episode in which Kutcher told the story of his son's walking, he spoke with Ellen about his love for Dax Shepard.

As much as the internet loves Ellen solo, they couldn't get enough of this delightful pair of neighbors.






The pair were later joined by Amy Adams, who reminisced about her guest appearance on an old episode of That '70s Show. Adams was on the show to promote Vice, the new movie in which she stars as Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney.

It seems Ashton and Ellen are going to be friends forever...as long as Ellen can stop herself from making fun of Ashton's son's walking habits.

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

I'm always stunned by bad parenting.

And I see it far too often.

People need a license to drive.

A license to fish.

But having kids?

Let anybody do it. Sure.

So many kids deserve better.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.

She was dying of cancer so it wasn't horrific.

Blood makes me faint, so any horrific scenes will not go well for me.
