Hello again, friends! I don’t really have much in the way of an introduction here, so let’s get to the links.
There’s a store in Sweden displaying lingerie on mannequins who are a size 6 and 10. A lot of the coverage of this talks about people saying that they “encourage obesity” but I haven’t actually seen anyone saying this so I’ll just assume that was trolling. Let’s not pat ourselves on the back for having the passing relationship with reality necessary to realize that a size 10 is not obese (h/t Greg). (Retail Hell Underground)
Good news for “Game of Thrones” fans in New York, Sao Paulo, Amsterdam and Belfast; there’s an exhibition of costumes and props from the show that’s going to be visiting your city sometime this spring or early summer! They’ll also have a replica of the Iron Throne you can sit on and an interactive “Blackwater Bay” feature. I’ve already made my plans to see it while it’s in New York. (Game of Thrones: The Exhibition)
Speaking of “Game of Thrones” they’ve released a few new teasers and io9 has a breakdown of what’s interesting. The comments are likely full of spoilers, but since Gawker media is testing a new, revolutionary comment system that seems designed to prevent you from actually seeing any comments, it should be easy to avoid them.

Also, the official season three premiere was last night and all the stars of the show came looking their best. So, looking at the men and ladies (at the link), who do you think won the Iron Throne of style? (Celebitchy)
And finally, like we needed another reason to be jealous of Anna Kendrick (h/t lowercase ryan) (Uproxx)
Did you know that Adam Scott tried out for the role of Jim Halpert on “The Office”? It’s true! Here are 11 other familiar faces who auditioned for one of the lead roles on the soon-to-be-ending NBC sitcom (including that lady from “24,” who tried out for Pam’s role). (WG)
One of the other sites I write for, Persephone Magazine, was recently sued. You can read more about it at the link. I was going to ask people to donate to their legal defense fund, but thankfully that has been fully funded. Instead, I’ll link to the last thing I wrote for them about copyright and the Harlem Shake, and ask that you turn off ad-blocker if you go to read it. (Persephone Magazine)
Some of you aren’t fans of Twitter. That’s ok. I’m sure your life is just as full without learning about Jamie Bamber’s underwear preferences.
Or Thomas Lennon letting us know how he chooses to inform people about his underwear preferences.
Oddly, I’ve been using “L’il Wayne Released from the Hospital” as slang for “not wearing briefs” for years.— Thomas Lennon (@thomaslennon) March 19, 2013
Lil Wayne is still in the hospital, though, so that phrase will remain confusing for a few days. (Bossip)
Ugh, this is getting long, isn’t it? Let’s take a stretch.
The BAMF Girls Club is what happens when you throw the female heros of a variety of popular series together in a house and make them deal with each other. Spoiler alert! Bella Swan doesn’t do so well.
And an older video, but one that I still enjoy a great deal; the women of Cracked on the importance of treating women on the internet like people rather than porn stars who just haven’t gotten around to taking their clothes off yet. It’s a solid message.
