Redheads Are Becoming Extinct? Not While They Look Like This They Aren't.

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | September 13, 2012 | Comments ()


Ever since we announced the shockingly repulsive Candy Corn Oreos have you been thinking to yourself, "Maybe I should try one...just a taste...what could it hurt? The ladies at Hot Ink have the answer. What could it hurt? Your very soul, children. Your very soul. (Hot Ink)

Speaking of sickly sweet things, I like to admire certain cake creations from afar. Because the fact of the matter is that the fondant or whatever was used to make this "Game of Thrones" Cake is absolutely disgusting. It tastes like Satan's Toothpaste. But it sure is purty.

And hey! You can wash it down with some GOT cocktails. Uhh, the Lannister one looks delicious but how on earth am I supposed to slur that name out when I'm already three Kingslayers to the wind? (TDW)

Apparently Donald Glover is already bracing himself for the demise of "Community" and has lined up a sitcom pilot deal with NBC. Really? You're going to stick with NBC? Okay then. (WG)

Obama has booked an upcoming appearance on Letterman. This would be his 7th appearance. Once again I say "suck it, Jay Leno." (CBS)

I didn't know this but apparently a rumor pops up from time to time that Redheads are in danger of becoming extinct. a) The rumor is false. b) Just in case it ain't: Save the world, bang a redhead. (Boing Boing)


We were just wondering a few weeks ago what had happened to Ethan Embry aka Preston Myers. Good news! We found him! Bad news...don't look at the photo. (Variety)

Apparently a movie theater in London is deploying "ninjas" to take down rude/loud filmgoers. I WANT THAT JOB. (/Film)

I lost my taste for puns earlier this week when I saw the shockingly stupid posters for CBS's "Elementary." But don't worry, Alison Brie has revived me! (Uproxx)

And, FYI, for you lovers of ladies, apparently "sexually aroused women find everything less disgusting." I think we may need to test this theory with more photos of Damien Lewis and a box of Candy Corn Oreos. (io9)

You know what's cute? Miniature Chocolate Hiddlestons. But since those don't exist, here's an adorable mash-up of animals covering their eyes with their paws. (HuffPo)

Finally, here are some fun facts to make your Trivia Nights all that more successful. I'm still reeling from that cashew crap.

My Internal Struggle With This Jessica Simpson Baby Weight Mess | The 15 Most Embarrassing Post-Bond Roles For Bond Girls

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • BlackRabbit

    Clearly I am a social and cultural troglodyte, since I thought Allison's name was pronounced BRY, not BRE. Shows what I know. :)

  • Blake

    If it means I'll have to sleep with Jane Levy, Molly Quinn, Debra Ann Woll, Jessica Chastain and Amy Adams then I'm happy to do my part to save the gingers...

  • Blake

    And not to forgotten Felicia Day...

  • SabrinaHatesDisqus

    "[Jessica Simpson] has spent practically the last year as a fat punchline to some, as a symbol of the unfair and often impossible standards of beauty demanded of women, and apparently men too, to many others."

  • googergieger

    I thought Q.I. was what people used to make their trivial nights more successful. Or in my case, seem a lot more interesting than I am at bars to get free drinks/laid.

  • Jezzer

    It has to be a better plan than relying on your personality.

  • googergieger

    So you wake up in the morning, see my comment where I make fun of myself, and decide you'll show me a whats for by insulting me in the same exact way I did?

    Not bad as far as plans go. I mean it is terrible, but probably the most clever thing you've ever done in your life. So, golf clap.

    *golf clap*

  • Stini

    (sits in redhead-banging vacuum trying to discuss one of the other links)Donald Glover's always seemed the least involved of the Community cast, not counting Chevy. Whenever they're up for an award or anything, the rest of them go crazy on Twitter promoting it and passing links, but Childish Gambino is all "What up girl? Look at the crowds who come to see me. #swag". Sometimes he goes partial-Kanye on there with the self-important sincerity. Him and Cusack; wish I'd never followed them. Twitter's a ruiner.

    Ah, bugger it. Damian Lewis, ladies and gentlemen!

  • DocDoom

    You see a cute redhead, you just point. Might as well have green Kryptonite hair...

  • Gingers won't become extinct people love the females. Us males will continue to be unattractive though. Damien Lewis is an anomaly. Only old ladies in the post office are attracted to my hair. Otherwise I gotta just trick women into thinking I'm someone else.

  • JoannaRobinson

    Aw, but everybody loves Louie.

  • Oh yeah sure. The internet is full of sultry screen grabs accompanied by Louie's quotes. I've got balder, redder and angrier in my future it's gonna be a nightmare finding these mythical redheaded rompers.

  • snapnhiss

    Maybe you can find a Yosemite Sam fangirl. ;)

  • I can't the man has no face just a wealth of hair. One day I'll grow a moustache of that prominence and run wild with my fox brethren.

  • I just happen to be a redhead who believes in the precautionary principle, so, yes, i am down with this bang a redhead thing.

  • MikeRoorda

    I had a boss at a previous job who was a redhead and I managed to get a promotion by way of the bed sheets. I hated the job (and kinda myself) at the time, but figured more money wouldn't hurt and she was moderately cute and both of us were single so, what the hell? It was short lived and petty on both our parts, but it was also some of the best sex I've ever had. I don't know if ALL of the redheads are like that, but the one that I slept with held up her end of the bargain.

  • B

    Well we know one redhead that will be "extinct" when she joins the 27 Club and no amount of nonsex with jimmy deen will change that.

  • BierceAmbrose

    Apparently, for the last 6 years there has been an annual "redhed day" in Breda, Netherlands:

    Why does no one tell me these things?

    Let's see - towel day, pi day, talk like a pirate day, Samhain, redhead day. My calendar is filling right up.

  • BierceAmbrose

    “sexually aroused women find everything less disgusting.

    Well, that explains a lot.

  • Chester Rockwell

    "HELL?" Yes, I will be there looking for Alison Brie?

  • Chester Rockwell

    Oops, no question mark intended. I'm pretty sure about my decision.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Redheads will never be extinct as long as Clairol Natural Instincts makes Cinnaberry #22. Oh, natural redheads? Well, I used to use henna, which is a natural product, but The Body Shop stopped making it because they suck and discontinue every product I like of theirs, and they don't seem to care that I was a loyal customer buying the same things, and creating a consistent revenue stream for them, month after month, year after year; it's all about what's “new” and what's "hawt", and dingy packaging consciously made to look unbleached and less processed, so that it has that veneer of environmental friendliness, and you can feel like a good consumer (I was a good consumer I bought your products ALL THE TIME), but plastic is plastic and you're not fooling me and you stopped making the good face cream, so what do I care, except that I have a “no bunny has to suffer so I can have beauty products” rule and The Body Shop are good that way which is why I started shopping there in the first place, plus that Satsuma soaps that smells so nice, and now I can’t afford the fancy cream elsewhere and everyone at Sephora looks at me like I’m a bug and can’t even answer the Bunny Question, and that one trip to Mac was disappointing and overpriced; plus I don’t look like the lovely young woman in the header photo anymore, okay, I never did but I was lovely in my own way back in the early Cretaceous, but now my ovaries are past their prime which is probably why The Body Shop doesn't want my business any more: I'm not hep with the kids today and their acai-berry-melon-squish body unguent. FASCISTS!

  • kilmo

    Agreed about The Body Shop discontinuing products. Blueberry body butter should be available YEAR ROUND!

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Who would downvote such an epic rant? I only understood about 30% but still-- epic. Amp up the plastic stuff, stick this in David Tennant's mouth and you have the climax to a Doctor Who ep Right. Here.

  • Mrs. Julien

    A downvote? This is so exciting! WHO WANTS A PIECE OF ME?!

  • ,

    I'll take you up on that offer. And I'll quickly lose for reals or on purpose (you'll never know), just so long as you end up on top.

  • Mrs. Julien


  • Fabius_Maximus

    Maybe it'll help if you introduced paragraphs? Just saying.

  • Am I the only one who isn't super comfortable with the President going on talk shows like that? Especially when he snubbed a meeting with Netanyahu to do so? I understand that it's election season so it's stump time, but come on, man. That doesn't look good.

  • Slash

    Per CNN: "Contrary to reports in the press, there was never a request for Prime Minister Netanyahu to meet with President Obama in Washington, nor was a request for a meeting ever denied," the White House said Tuesday night in its statement, which made reference to "our close cooperation on Iran and other security issues."

    Not sure why the president (in the middle of a reelection campaign) is required to meet with the Israeli PM on demand. So maybe that's why he felt Letterman was more important (from a PR perspective, esp. given the shit happening in Libya and Egypt) than listening to Netenyahu bitch about Iran some more.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    thank you for that. It's been annoying me.

    though I should note that if it had been a snub, "in the middle of a reelection campaign" is not a valid justification.

  • Quatermain

    That was my first thought when I read that..."Doesn't he have more important things to do than hobnob with Letterman. What's he going to say that's he not already said the other six times?"

  • Aw, Ethan Embry's still cute, there's just a little less on top. I was expecting Level Spader puffiness.

  • I think we may need to test this theory with more photos of Damien Lewis and a box of Candy Corn Oreos.

    Not even Damien Lewis himself doing a private dance for me could salvage those nasty Oreos.

    But he's welcome to try.

  • AngelenoEwok

    Unfortunately, I can bang Rose Leslie, Karen Gillan, Isla Fisher, Julianne Moore, and Christina Hendricks into next week, and it still won't result in itty bitty baby redheads. But I'm more than happy to try.

  • Commissar

    Christina Hendricks is actually a blonde.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Potato, potahto. She's RED HOT!

  • JoannaRobinson

    Try your brains out, MB.

  • AngelenoEwok

    If at first I don't succeed...

  • Sayo

    I call Tom Hiddleston!

  • Get in line.

  • Guest

    Why Candy Corn Oreos? Why not Nutella Oreos? Just saying that makes my mouth happy.

  • Kenny G.

    What we need are "Candy Cigarette" oreos...

  • Slash

    Oooh, this. WTF hasn't it happened yet?

  • Guest

    Yes. Now.

  • The Other Agent Johnson

    Wait... Surely I can't be the only one who dips their Oreos in Nutella?

    Can I?


  • Not even Damien Lewis himself doing a private dance for me could salvage those nasty

  • BobbFrapples

    That was how I was introduced to Nutella. Oreos and Nutella were meant to be together. :)

  • lowercase_ryan

    candy corn oreos are their own layer of hell. As I type this I have a full bag (save for 3) in the trash next to my desk. I'm also on the greatest sugar crack high of my life.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Do men with ginger beards count? Because if they do, I have a looooooong list of men I'd like to bang.

  • ***Joins the line for redhead banging*** Bring on the sweet, sweet ginger lovin'. :-)
    Addendum: Holy Hell. The girls in the pic that accompanies the redhead article are painfully hot. Three words. Nekkid. Ginger. Dogpile.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    You can have the two sisters. I'll settle for the other two.

  • PDamian

    Dibs on Cumberbatch. He's more of a strawberry blond, you say? Well, dibs anyways.

  • JoannaRobinson

    It counts.
