Like little stars.
There’s no solace for “Parks and Rec” fans annoyed that Amy Poehler didn’t win an Emmy at the 66th Emmy Award ceremony Monday night, but maybe a review of the night’s best, funniest moments will help you restore your faith in Hollywood’s tastemakers. Host Seth Meyers was delightful, as were the show’s comedic segments, both planned and improvised. Here are the top six:
Sarah Silverman shows off her purse on the red carpet
Rather, the liquid pot inside her purse.
Seth Meyers’ opening monologue
“Welcome to the Emmy Awards. This year we’re doing it on a Monday in August, which I understand in television means the Emmys are about to get canceled.”
Seth’s “Billy on the Street” segment
“Who is hosting this year’s Emmy Awards?” (Hint: “He’s standing next to me”)
Weird Al Yankovic’s parody medley
And George R.R. Martin with a typewriter
Jimmy Fallon “Kanye-d” Stephen Colbert
Host of the “Colbort Report,” according to Gwen Stefani.
Bryan Cranston kissed Julia Louis-Dreyfus
A wonderful throwback to “Seinfeld.”

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
