Who's Got Two Thumbs, No Shirt And Is Angling For An Academy Award? This Guy.

Lizzy Caplan, who is like a sharper, edgier, WAY BETTER Alison Brie, participated in a Reddit AMA. My boy Josh put together the very best bits for your big ol' lesbian crush enjoyment. (WG)

McConaughey jokes around about getting an Oscar for his work in Magic Mike. Listen, I won't lie, I would KILL to see "Ladies of Tampa" performed live at The Academy Awards. (Vulture)

In honor of Lincoln, here's a breakdown of the number of times U.S. presidents have been portrayed in film. Wow. W. Really. (Neatorama)

I love this absolutely preposterous, completely fabricated story about how Brad Pitt is jealous that Angelina Jolie is secretly recording/watching her ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller's stupid show "Elementary" for oh so many reasons. Chief among them is the excuse to post this old photo of the two. Anyone in the mood to watch Hackers? (Celebitchy)

And speaking of lovely old couples, my favorite "Buffy" pair are reuniting for an upcoming guest spot. All the heart things. (TMS)

This past week, Puerto Rico voted to give up its status as a U.S. territory and become America's fifty-first state. This doesn't mean they will, but the internet decided to design some new 51-star U.S. flags anyway. (Daily Dot)

The script of Neil Gaiman's "Doctor Who" episode was found in the back of cab this week. So, sweeties, if you're into that sort of thing, here are some tasty spoilers. (Nerd Approved)

Someone who is most assuredly not TK built a Giant Tentacle Monster this Halloween. And you can too. (Instructables)

Speaking of monsters, I'm not sure if you saw the slew of appallingly racist, anti-Obama tweets that were being bandied about this past week. I was completely shocked, but, then again, I live in a liberal bubble. Jezebel (because they're the internet police?) has taken it upon themselves to report some racist sh*tbag teenage tweeters to their high school administrations. This is all very odd and while I don't feel protective at all of racist sh*tbag teenagers, I'm not quite sure what Jezebel is hoping to accomplish. (Jezebel)

And, well, if a single one of those tweets made The Baby Jesus Barack Obama cry, there will be hell to pay. This video of our Prez tearing up while thanking his staff for their hard work has been circulating on the internet. Some folks take it as a sign of a weakness. I take it to mean our President isn't a robot. And I'm more than okay with that.

    Angelina now vs then: different skin, different boobs, different cheekbones, different clothes...same miserable expression.

  • John G.

    She's way cuter then. Today she's always pretending to be a statue, but she's not a statue. She's a human being. At least, I think she is.

    She gonna need about tree fiddy...no wait, that's the Loch Ness monster, never mind.

    No diss to Puerto Rico, but can D.C. please get in on this statehood thing too?
    As a resident of the fair district, I'm tired of the whole "taxation without representation" thing - it's even on our license plates.

    Do I think what Jezebel did was right? I don't know. Part of me thinks no. But at the same time I hope it leads to some of these kids getting the shit kicked out of them at school. If you wouldn't say it in person, don't say it on the internet. Fuck your anonymity.

  • idiosynchronic

    Jezebel's error is that they made themselves the story - as a journalist friend tells me, " . . media reporting about itself? Also known as 'disappearing up your own a@@hole.'"

  • melissa82

    Yeah I feel the same way. I don't think children's names should be available for everyone to see...but at the same time they are assholes-- and they hash tagged the shit out of their posts so anyone could find their racist rants.

  • Bedewcrock

    I mean I get where they're coming from but they published minors' names and schools on their website that is seen by quite a lot more people. I feel like it's some weird sort of internet vigilantism that seems to just further the hate.

  • Sirilicious

    The minors published their own names, by tweeting under their own names. Accountability FTW.

  • Bedewcrock

    I don't know. It seems counter intuitive.

    Michael: You taught me a lesson about not teaching lessons?
    George Sr.: That was my last lesson.

  • Sirilicious

    I guess jezebel could have made their point by just publishing the results of contacting the schools (which i think was a great idea), wihtout the names. In my naive mind, I think the Jezebel readers will not use this to harrass or threaten these stupid kids, if they take action, it will be to respectfully explain why their tweets were not ok.

  • Puddin

    Hasn't that been the modus operandi of the entire Gawker Media empire lately, though?

  • Bedewcrock

    Totally. I think this one was way more bullyish than exposing the Reddit moderator since they published minors' names. You're not anonymous on the internet and your actions should be held accountable but it almost seems like a misstep on their actual intentions. It's a very weird gray area though. Lord, don't get me started on Jezebel's vigilantism.

  • Puddin

    No shit, dude! That site used to be awesome, now it is ridiculous.

    Maybe we should create a Jezebel Bingo game? Check your privilege, healthy at any weight, trigger, and, my personal favorite, "Oh my God you guys. I am literally shaking and crying right now."

  • Bedewcrock

    Check: trashy reality TV summary and meme, the random commenter who unknowingly stumbles into a troll/snob fight and gets upset, and one long winded rant that no one reads because why is it so long??

  • Puddin

    Ha! Correlation is not causation! This study, regardless of science, is nothing but fat shaming propaganda! I spend every minute fighting the patriarchy, except for the minutes I spend watching Honey Boo Boo, debating cake and pie, and omg puppies!!!

  • Quatermain

    Outside of 'Frailty' which if you haven't seen you should, I'm largely indifferent to Matthew
    McConaughey's films. But I'll damned if 90% of the pictures I've ever
    seen of him didn't make me think "You know, I bet he'd be a cool guy to
    have a beer and hang out with."

    Personally, the phrase 'favorite
    Buffy pair' makes me think of Spike and Drusilla. I always thought those
    two deserved a spin off of their own, maybe even moreso than Angel did.

    Last
    but not least, someone should clue the folks over at Jezebel in to the
    fact that if they're going to get their panties in a bunch every time
    some teenager is a dick on the Internet, they're not going to have any
    time left over to do whatever it is they do.

  • Bedewcrock

    Frailty is awesome. Bill Paxton is the best creeper ever.

  • anikitty

    I loved the video of the President crying. Rather than weakness, for me, it is a sign of strength. He isn't crying because he lost, but rather as in relief at the end of a long fought battle and with gratitude for the people who got him there. Manly as hell. But you can't trust me, I love it when athletes cry after a big win. I'm a softie at heart.

  • Scully

    I'm right there with you. A man who isn't afraid to show emotion and cry is sexy as hell and will enjoy the SEXYTIME. It is known.

  • foolsage

    * nods * It is known.

    "Lizzy Caplan, who is like a sharper, edgier, WAY BETTER Alison Brie,
    participated in a Reddit AMA..."

    This makes no sense. How does Lizzy Kaplan make a better "Alison Brie" than the actual Alison Brie? Have you ever seen Lizzy Kaplan dress up like Alison Brie? Have you seen Lizzy Kaplan play the role of Annie Edison? Or Trudy Campbell? Or Girlfriend #4 in my latest X-rated dream?

    Listen, Joanna. I like you. And I like Lizzy. Especially naked. I mean, I especially like Lizzy naked. I wasn't referring to liking you naked. Not that I wouldn't want to see you ... wait, where was I going with this?

    Oh, yah. Just take back what you said about Ms. Brie or I will drive up to San Francisco and steal all of your books and sick (sic) -- see what I just did there? I went meta grammatical - the Northern California Chapter of the Annie's Boobs Fan Club on you.

    So, in conclusion. Alcohol and medication. The end.

  • Scully

    I cannot imagine why under age and therefore non-voting HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS have such a strong opinion of the President. Kiddos, get a beer and shut up. Jezebel, there is no need for Team America patrols, get a beer and relax.

  • John G.

    basically, everybody go get a beer. It's beer Friday.

  • L.O.V.E.

    I have no problem with Jezebel or any publication taking the words that these little shits post for all the world to see and making them accountable for it. They may not yet (or even ever) vote, but they do or will someday breed: whether they breed children, hate or the food on my plate.

    And putting aside for a moment, as if we even can, the particular word they used towards OUR President, no American should degrade the Office of the President of the United States of America, whether it be occupied by a Republican or Democrat, with threats of assassination or similarly stupid language.

  • BiblioGlow

    Look back at Pajiba's Why do You Vote the Way You Do? comment diversion from a couple days ago. How many people's opinions changed or reversed in college?

    Right now these kids are spouting what they've heard and been taught by their parents. Right now they understand so little of the world - including the importance of their own name and reputation. Yes, I know, they're young adults, but we can't teach them like children, expect them to act like adults, and then punish them like this when they fail. Think back to some of the stupid stuff you pulled in high school. What would have happened if you'd been called on it by a giant website in front of thousands of people using your real name, and they then called your principle?

    Why doesn't Jezebel focus on adults? What's the point in going after high schoolers - their opinions are going to change in two years anyway, and they'll look back on this time with shame. If not, shame them then - when they're adults and equals. I see this as nothing but bullying by Jezebel, and I'm disgusted by it.

    Old enough to use the internet = old enough to experience some consequences that didn't occur to you. Reap what you sow.

  • Lemon_Poundcake

    Completely agree.
