New Kids on the Block to Reunite

We swear, it was never initially our intention to post two New Kids items today (though truly, what better way to welcome new Buzzworthy blogger BuzzRock into the fray?), but the world really needs to know -- NKOTB are poised to drop the comeback bomb when they appear on The Today Show this Friday, April 4.

The announcement *ever so perfectly* coincides with the 20th anniversary of their breakthrough album, "Hangin' Tough," which sold an unbelievable 16 million copies worldwide. Check out their official site for a sentimental reel of through-the-years highlights, including Elizabeth Hasselback and one of the other chicks from The View doing the "Hangin' Tough" dance. (Awkward!)

In addition to our denim tuxedos and pork pie hats (Joey Mac was doing it before Fergie!), we'll also be dusting off our VHS players to "tape" the show. (Just kidding. It's slowly decomposing in a landfill somewhere, so we'll Tivo it like everyone else.) Meanwhile, you feel free work on those "not-so-new-kids" puns. (Also, in other Today Show news that you probably care even less about: Kathie Lee Gifford is joining the show's cast.

Now watch "Step by Step" -- it hurts us more than it hurts you.
