Two Geek Gods Meet At Comic-Con. Mind If I Squeeze In The Middle And Just...Wriggle Around A Little?

My darling, filthy bookworms, after you've exhausted yourself thinking up dirty alternates for classic titles ("Atlas Splooged" and "Romeo in Juliet" are my favorites so far), go ahead and douse yourself in this new perfume (Paper Passion) that allegedly smells of books. Having worked in many a bookshop, my best guess is that it smells vaguely of mildew. Mmmm. (Laughing Squid)

Speaking of book smut, here's a hilarious GoodReads review of "50 Shades Of Grey"...with gifs. (GoodReads)

I apologize to all you non-"Breaking Bad" watchers. For the next seven weeks we're likely to be mildly obsessed. Here's Dustin with all the "Chekhovian Guns" from the last four seasons of the series. Beneke's Rug is definitely my favorite. (WG)

Here's an early indication that Bryan Cranston alone may be worth the Total Recall admission price. (io9)

Nerd worlds colliding is a fairly common site at Comic-Con, but this photo of Nathan Fillion and Matt Smith warms the cockles of my heart and other regions of my pants. (Nerd Approved

In "some things never change" news, the president of "Chick-fil-A" prays for the arrogance of our generation for "allowing" gay peoples to get married. You know what, that's fine, keep peddling your death biscuits and foot lettuce. I think we're better off without you, Chick-fil-A. (Gothamist)

Anyone interested in a rad "Goonies" poster for their wall? What if it features a booty trap? (Etsy) Awwwwww, or what about this adorably snuggable Aliens t-shirt? (Shirtoid)

Who here is excited for the Olympics? I'm more of a Winter sports girl me-self, but these high-res photos of the athletes in training are fantastic. (The Big Picture)

If you care about the new iPhone 5, here is a hint as to what we can expect. Something taller and thiner? Awwww, I love you my fat, squat iPhone 4. I'll never leave you. (TechCrunch)

Matt Zoller Seitz over at Vulture reveals his favorite TV fight. I don't know that I agree. I prefer that time Silas 12-pointed Slippery Dan. (Vulture)

Speaking of dearly departed TV shows, it looks like "Pushing Daisies" may be headed to Broadway. Can it be an all They Might Be Giants musical? PLEASE? (The Mary Sue)

And though I'm trying not to bombard you with too many Batman links, here's an interview where Nolan craps all over 3-D. I can't pass that by. (Salon)

Finally, my jaded cynics, here is a collection of shots that may restore your faith in cinema. It's a little arty, so go ahead and pour yourself and afternoon glass of wine. You deserve it.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Anna von Beav

    Mmmmm afternoon wine

  • BierceAmbrose

    ... so go ahead and pour yourself and afternoon glass of wine.

    I don't think "afternoon" and "glass" can be properly used in that way.

    Dear Dan Cathy, Chick-fil-A President,

    Thank you so much for making your brand of "food" that much more attractive to gay-bashing bigots everywhere. It's nice to know that at the end of the day, when Bible-misquoting ignoramuses everywhere such as yourself want to belly up to a food trough completely free of sinning homosexuals, it will be your artery-hardening swill they will be two-fisting like so many pigs in slop ecstasy.

    When I first caught a whiff of your product at the CNN Center in Atlanta, GA, I just about gagged at the pungent stench of what could best be described as week-old fryer grease, stale biscuits and batter-dipped decomposition. Needless to say, I didn't need to eat anywhere for lunch that day. As it turns out what I really smelled was actually a Chick-fil-A sanctioned odor barrier countermeasure designed to keep non-traditional sexually oriented people away in much the same way that stray dogs mark their territory with urine. Remarkably, this tactic has appeared to have been implemented at most participating franchise locations. As an unfortunate side effect for your business, I can also testify that it also does an effective job at repelling straight people as well, especially those of us afflicted with such apparent shortcomings as logic, reason, accountability, humanity and IQ scores over 80. But hey, that's the price one must pay in order to keep your establishment "fairy free", right?

    So once again, thank you for making sure that your cardiac-clogging product is all the more likely to exclusively reach the very people who so richly deserve to consume it the most. It's so nice to know that with all the charities and causes out there in need of a helping hand, you've instead taken the time to expose yourself for the intolerant and hateful prick you while still clinging to the facade of being a man of faith.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Trampolining in the Olympics infuriates me. Is that our fault? Did American's do this? If so I'm so GD ashamed right now.

  • There'll Be Pancakes

    When I read things like that review, it makes me sad because I will never ever in my life write something so awesome.

    And I'm going to have to go ahead and call Photoshop on that header image, because I can't believe a world exists where Doctor Who meets Captain Hammer and we're still here

    "The hammer... is my penis."

  • jmd

    Anyone see the video of NF kissing Zachary Levi for charity - fantastic!

    Made my day, I can tell you....

  • Tinkerville

    Oh my god. As Zachary Levi was #1 in my top five, thank you for that.

  • Maguita NYC

    Squeal. Thanks!

  • Matt Brown

    "You know what, that’s fine, keep peddling your...foot lettuce."

    Which is a story about Burger King.

  • JoannaRobinson

    If you think it couldn't happen at a Chick-fil-A, you're kidding yourself.

  • LwoodPDowd

    It could happen anywhere that serves food. That doesn't make it any less misleading or you any less wrong for implying it was from chick-fil-A.

  • Drake

    "The Doctor and Captain Reynolds met at Comic-Con, and the world didn’t explode." -- Maybe not, but if I had been there, I suspect that my pants might have exploded.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    "...if I ever, ever ever have to hear/read the words "inner
    goddess" again, I'm going to construct a pyre out of tampons and maxi
    pads, light it, and toss unsuspecting women into it." That is hilarious!
    I will never read that silly lame excuse for a novel, but that was a really great book review! The gifs do really make it something to behold.

  • Skyler Durden

    I lost about two hours of productivity at work today, reading those reviews and nearly peeing myself.

  • Skyler Durden

    This part nearly made my choke to death on my lunch.

  • athena23

    Yes! My muffled giggle-snort had the person in the next office asking if I was okay.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I thought "Westward, Ho!" was the highlight, myself.

  • I don't know what's funnier in the 50 Shades review, the first gif of my beloved Bert or the one of Frankenfurter running away in a hissy.

  • space_oddity

    I read through them all, laughing hysterically. My favorite part is in the review of the final book where she talks about who cleans the butt plugs after they've been used. That and the fact she used the reaction gif from Italian Spiderman (which -O M G - I watched in its glorious entirety last weekend).

  • Maguita NYC

    I'm at the second one and need a breather. Sponge Bob dipping his sub was just too much.

  • athena23

    Did you read the other two for the sequels? I just spent a glorious half hour trying to suppress my laughter so my co-workers wouldn't catch on.

  • Maguita NYC

    I'm trying to get over Lord FistThumper, and
    poopie finger, poopie finger, poopie finger, poopie... finger.

  • athena23

    Lord FistThumper may be my new online ID. And the debate about whether to sanitize the, uh, plug? Had me rolling.

  • Read her review of the second book - I literally laughed out loud at her "Spoiler - sex" gif. Scared the hell out of my cat.

  • Maguita NYC

    I was expecting though for her to address the without-a-condom thing... You know, how whatever goes up Ana, just never seems to trickle back down?? Ever!

  • BiblioGlow

    I think my favorite was the "David Bowie has no patience for this bullshit' gif.

  • Maguita NYC

    I'm still wiping away tears. This review is really good and spot on!

    Oh my.

  • dizzylucy

    I'm still giddy over the photo of NF with Tory Belleci of Mythbusters too. That Fillion gets around.

    Aw, that's OK Chick-Fil-A president. I'll pray that you stop being a homophobic bigot who feels he can restrict the rights of others. So we'll call it even?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    The news on Pushing Daisies is pretty sparse. But the whisper of a germ of the beginning of the thought of an idea may be enough to spark hope.

    I love the Olympics. Summer and Winter. I even watch that weird indoor cycling event.

  • GunNut2600

    I too love the Olympics though I am planning on being fully and utterly disappointed by NBC's craptastic coverage again. For the life of me, I do not understand why they spend SO much money to deliver such little content. Estonian feeds, provide more events than you can get in the US. How insane is that?

    I was so hoping that NBC didn't get the rights again...

  • Maguita NYC

    Oh jeeezus, let me be the cream between your Oreos.
