Kate Winslet Wearing Geeky Glasses Has Me Singing "Wonder Whoa-man!"

By Cindy Davis | Pajiba Love | February 7, 2013 | Comments ()


Welcome to Pajiba Love: Wonder Women edition. Love us or leave us, we'll still kick your ass.

Remember this beautiful lady? She's my absolute favorite superhero:

Attempts at a reboot or a Wonder Woman film keep stalling--and no won...er...no shit, because who can live up to Lynda Carter? The moment I saw photos of the glorious, bespectacled Kate out doing the grocery thing, a little lightbulb flashed in my head, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about her since. All she needs to do is go brunette. Wonder Woman is set to make an appearance in Justice League, so...make it happen DC. (FilmDrunk)

Speaking of failed attempts, you can have a look at the concept art for what would have been David E. Kelley's "Wonder Woman," had it not gone tits up. (io9)

California seventh grader and junior Wonder Woman, Lauren Rojas sent her Hello Kitty flying high; 93,625 feet, to be exact. Conducting a science experiment intended to record air pressure and temperature, the thirteen year old girl planted Miss Kitty on a tiny rocket ship outfitted with cameras, and with the help of High Altitude Science, sent her on the trip of a lifetime. (via io9)

Here's an equal opportunity to pledge yourself to the Night's Watch. Through February 18th, you can go to HBO's "Game of Thrones" affiliated My Watch Begins and add your voice to Jon Snow's (Kit Harrington). (There's also a live gathering happening in NYC.) In concurrence with the February 19th Blu-ray release of Season 2, a compilation of all the recordings shall be heard. (EW)

Wonder whether you should watch HBO's women? Hannah Horvath may well be the next Walter White or Louis CK. (I maintain she's the new Larry David.) And while you're cringing, don't leave "Enlightened's" Amy Jellicoe behind. These ladies are "the crest of a second, female-centered wave of change..." (The New Yorker)

Real life heroine, Pennsylvania mail carrier, Jo Amerson, saved a doggy life when she saw a house on fire. Calling her actions "All in a day's work," Amerson knocked out windows to check if anyone was inside, found an unconscious dog and performed CPR to revive the animal. (via Uproxx)


No desire to be a superhero yourself? Wear one, instead. Check out this gallery of the Geekiest Dresses in Existence. (Unreality) Or, if you prefer, imagine yourself as the Doctor... (Neatorama)

Do your pups just sit around eating biscuits? Wonder Sheepdogs Sarah and Sophie earn their keep as actors, posing and pawing around town so they can be delightfully exploited over the interwebs every day. I'm not complaining. (Cees Bol and Hanneke van de Watering Flickr via Buzzfeed)



Wonder if being a beautiful woman is enough to get you cast in Ryan Gosling's first directorial feature? No, silly! You have to sleep with him too. (Celebitchy)

And finally, imagine being this wondrous woman: Peng Xiuhua--at the age of 101--woke up to find herself wrapped up in a coffin, being prepared for her funeral. Surprise, bitches! (via Neatorama)

She can shop AND read at the same time! Hello, Diana!


Cindy Davis, (Twitter) sometimes spins in circles, but nothing happens...

    Okay, you idjits. So, I took that stupid oath, because wheeeee fun! Next thing I know I'm treking up the King's Road through the Neck, past that pile of rocks and burnt timbers the Starks call a stronghold to end up at this hellhole of a tollbooth made of ice! Do you know what the wind chill is 600 feet above the ground at the friggin' Artic Circle? No? It's "Hey I can't feel my balls!" Bunch of Emo Pinkertons all "honor" this and "Duty" that and "Does this smell like burning flesh to you?" Screw this, I'm signing up with the unsullied. I hear they only work in warm climates, so at least my balls will be more comfortable. Why are you laughing?

  • You're my favorite.

  • Kballs

    Aw schucks---I mean shit.

  • Kballs

    I don't care who plays Wonder Woman, can they please get rid of those preposterous star-spangled short-shorts? It looks like a diaper and serves no purpose beyond some sort of xenophobic hate-baiting.

  • Anna von Beav

    I LOVE THOSE SHORTS. I wanted those shorts SO HARD when I was 8.

  • Lemon_Poundcake

    I had the Wonder Woman UnderRoos. Jealous?

  • Anna von Beav



  • Salieri2
  • Kballs

    Yeah, and I wore JAMS, shaved lines into my hair, sported a rat-tail, and thought ColecoVision would never be topped when I was 8. That does not mean any of these things are a good idea anymore.

  • Mrcreosote

    Dude, are you harshing on my look? I'm a South African rock god!

  • Lindsey Gregory

    I sang "Wonder Whoa-Mannnnn" in my head like Liz Lemon did when she gave Jack that Birthday Card recording. Is that sad?

  • Natallica

    Is it you, Madge?
