Before we begin, our hearts go out to everyone affected by the shootings in El Paso and Dayton this weekend. Dustin will have a post up Monday morning about the shootings. I’m going to ask everyone to please refrain from discussing it in the comments here, though. For everyone feeling anxious or stressed, this can be a place of refuge for at least a short while. We can keep the comment section free from any discussion of guns, Second Amendment, MRAs, etc. For tonight, anyway, let’s talk about other things, ok? Thank you!
Let us all just admire our Pajiba 10 number one, shall we? - (Lainey)
Julianne Hough may have been raised Mormon, but she’s clearly beyond the Temple now and feeling herself as she poses for and talks to Women’s Health. - (Celebitchy)
Hamilton’s Daveed Diggs will star as Frederick Douglass in an upcoming Showtime series. Trump will probably somehow take credit for this, making Douglass popular. - (Shadow and Act)
I have to read a lot of articles throughout the day to find stuff to link for Pajiba Love. This might end up being a huge help for me and maybe for some of you: a site that summarizes long articles. - (Lifehacker)
I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing that I’m not the only one who always confuses John Delaney with John Mulaney. - (TMS)

Those of you who RUSHED to the defense of that monstrous mustard ice cream last week might be interested in these mustard facts. - (MF)

Ok, YAY, A$AP Rocky has been released from the Swedish jail and is home now - can we stop talking about this guy? - (Dlisted)
Infertility is so hard. Women share what they wish other people understood about it. - (Buzzfeed)
I knew Resusci Annie, the CPR mannikin, was based on a young woman who drowned, but I didn’t know the young French woman’s actual death mask was the true model for its face. - (BP)
The Fancy Farm Picnic takes place every year in Graves County, Kentucky. It’s a big deal, kinda’. It’s the informal kick-off to the political season and the Kentucky politicians always attend and speak. This year, a large contingent of attendees practically drowned out Mitch McConnell with shouts of “Moscow Mitch!” On a personal note: My family is descended from the original founders of Fancy Farm and it really pleases me to watch Mitch get shit on in his home state.
