I have at least a dozen friends who will scream and giggle with delight when they hear this news. Hell, I may even go...apparently those Spice Girls reunion shows were pretty fantastic, and we all know that NKOTB are far superior to the Spice Girls, so sounds like a blast!

First: Ew. Second: Donnie Wahlberg is like fifty. Are they going to make him do the running man?

It's weird that no one blasted out of this group like Justin Timberlake did with N'Sync, Beyonce did with Destiny's Child, or um, Ricky Martin with Menudo.

Or it's not weird because this group was really terrible.

Shouldn't they be the Middle-Aged Men on the Block?

Omg, I want to go. This could be the hangover talking though.

I'm looking at this photo wondering how millions of girls (and some boys, probably, too) thought NKOTB members were cute. Hmmm. . .

When I was 10, I was obsessed with the New Kids. LOVED them. The one thing I never got over about my childhood was that my dad wouldn't take me to a New Kids concert (He wasn't wiling to drive to Portland -- the closest city they'd ever even consider coming -- for it). I still have a few of their songs on my iPod. But the idea of a reunion tour is laughable.

So sad. After twenty years they are still the "New Kids". Apparently, they have learned nothing in all that time.

The one in the middle kind of looks like a girl. Perhaps he appealed to some budding lesbians.

@9: Dude, it's fucking on. I really hope they all wear the exact same ridiculous outfits they did when I was 9.

Didn't they play the Puyallup Fair once? I seem to recall a bunch of people from school who went and then spent the next year denying they were there.

I'm holding out for the dreamy Bay City Rollers reunion tour.

Charles, is that you stealing ECB's login ID again?

Middle aged gay men and straight women everywhere are swooning.

At least these musicians have the guts to smile once in a while. What is up with bands with prepetual frowns?

oh oh o o o

But how does this make Hillary superior to Obama?
