Greetings my Dapper Drapers and Heavenly Holloways. I made a big mistake yesterday, huge. I pimped the lovely Janna O’Shea for the “Mad Men” Casting Contest because I didn’t know that two of our very own Pajibans had entered. Well here they are. (Seriously they are lookers.) So cast your vote for either the Joan-ish Skyler Durden or the Peggy-ish (but prettier) Tammy. You can vote once a day EVERY DAY until September 9. So go, what are you waiting for? And then tell the ladies how pretty they are in the comments.
Speaking of Joan Holloway, the buxom Christina Hendricks is just one of a slew of ladies Dustin has rounded up in this “Beautiful Celebrity Women In Uncomfortable Poses.” Some Pajibans have already pointed out that there are several yoga poses in this gallery, but I say it’s worth a look for Heather Graham’s Downward Facing Boob Frog Pose alone. (Uproxx)
And while we’re on the subject of the ladies of “Mad Men,” several of you sent me this link wherein the actor who plays young Bobby Draper on the AMC show talks a wee bitty bit of sh*t on January Jones. You guys know me so well. He doesn’t call her a monster or anything. But I think we can all agree she totally is. (Celebitchy)
Several of you also sent me this story about Ryan Gosling breaking up a street fight with, as FilmDrunk calls it, “half a hug.” I have to admit, I’m a little dubious about this story not because I don’t believe in the healing power of the Baby Goose, but because I watched the video several times and never saw a clear shot of his face. You decide. (FilmDrunk)
I have NO trouble, however, believing that Kate Winslet carried Richard Branson’s 90-year-old mother from a burning building. She probably did it while reciting a Shakespeare sonnet backwards…in heels. Thanks, Fracas. (Cinematical)
Speaking of sexy ladies, check out this chica in a Gameboy swimsuit. I read somewhere that if you press ↑, ↑, ↓, ↓, ←, →, ←, →, B, A, Start, you get slapped in the face. (Unreality)
Don’t worry, the vibrating ankle patches won’t get you pregnant, but if you should find yourself in the family way, please remember this story of how you can exploit Tolkien to get your little Hobbit to sit down, shut up and eat his/her breakfast. (Baby Center)
The Forbes Top Earning Celebrity Couples probably have a fleet of nannies to do their Tolkiening for them. Also? Good thing the Smiths, Jada and Will, didn’t make this list because word on the $treet$ is that they are no longer a couple. (Evil Beet)
Speaking of vats of money, Malcolm Gladwell has a theory on the NBA lockouts and how it’s linked to a phenomenon where those who own something of great value (e.g. a sports team) derive more pleasure in the power of ownership (aka d*cking with your hopes, dreams, and sporting events) than they do in the profitability of that possession. It’s kind of a sports article, is my point. I try, you guys, I try. (Grantland)
But no matter how many pots of gold we here at Pajiba make, we will always have our annual company picnic here at Bamboo Gardens. I mean, look at their website, can you blame us? (Bamboo Gardens)
Finally, to all our Canadian readers mourning the passing of Jack Layton I want to express my sincerest condolences. It’s rare (at least in our country) that a politician receives such a sincere outpouring of love from his constituents. He must have been a rare breed. H/T llp. (CBC)
To help the healing begin, we start today with the official video for OK Go’s cover of “The Muppet Show” theme song. It’s damn adorable.
And, finally, Pinky McLadybits and Paultera both sent me this lovely video that has INFOGRAPHICS about JURASSIC PARK. Seriously, you guys get me. You really do. And I love you all.
Joanna Robinson is wondering if you forgot to vote for Skyler and Tammy. DO IT NOW.
