Happy Friday! Before I get to linking, one quick bit of business. Dearest, darling jubilat. Yesterday you sweetly asked for a reminder not to read this column. This is your gentle reminder, my dove. Don’t keep reading! Get out while you can! Is he/she/it gone? Okay, good, we’ve done our good deed for the day. Happy Crowdsourced Friday! One of my favorite things about It Takes A Village People Pajiba Loves is that I get to find out what sites you, my rapacious readers, enjoy. Today we start with two Mental Floss links. The first one from paultera lists several words you may not know are trademarked. Really, Jacuzzi? I guess I’ll go back to calling them Roiling Watery Stew Pots Of Human Filth And Contagion. Oh, or hot tubs. That works too. (Mental Floss)
Secondly Nat Kittyface sent in this list of historical figures who married their cousins. I don’t know if one of them can properly be called “historical” since he’s still alive, but, nonetheless, it’s a bad idea when cousins marry. (Mental Floss)
Speaking of historical romances (no not the Fabio kind), Caspar sent me this, the most unbelievably filthy thing I have ever linked on Pajiba Love. (Yes, that includes this popejenn link called, no joke, Cooking With Cum.) It’s James Joyce’s “love” letters to his lady friend and if you’ve read Joyce, you know what levels of fetid fecundity to expect. (Love Letters)
But we all know, don’t we, that love is not always sunshine and f*ckbirds. Nat Kittyface sent me this hilarious screed one young lover wrote about his girlfriend’s cat. (Something Awful)
That link was for you pet haters. This link, like Virginia, is for the lovers. Thanks to mswas for this tearjerker of a link about a missing guide dog who came back with a special gift for its owner. (The Denver Channel)
Celebitchy gives we lovers of man flesh a special gift every week with their phenomenal Hot Guy Friday. I almost threw up my hands in disgust when I saw stupid Sam Worthington and then they won me back by including my boyfriend Tony Leung (also Olyphant, Voldemort, and Neville Longhottom). See, that was going to be my featured Celebitchy link today, but then I saw this post on Kelly Brook, a model who, um, just, well, DANG. Christina Hendricks has a little (not so little) competition. (Celebitchy)
Speaking of actresses/characters I would go oh-so-very gay for, I am head over heels in love with Kristin Bauer (Pam) of “True Blood.” She has the best lines, the best costumes and puts Paquin and her ilk to shame. Here’s a great interview and, below, a photo of her shilling for one of my favorite companies, Lush. (NYMag)
First person to say Pam looks too mannish gets a slap in the face. Speaking of mannish ladies, however, in reaction to Robert Downey Jr.’s dismal drag for Sherlock Holmes, “The Village Voice” has a great pictorial of famous film actors in drag including, I kid you not, Boris Karloff. (Village Voice)
I most assuredly do not watch “True Blood” for Vampire Bill. In fact, I would like to add his to this fanastic list of TV’s Twenty Most Punchable Faces. Oh, Nancy Grace, die in ALL the fires. (Warming Glow)
Finally, this comes from our most lovable sex-crazed poster Kballs. It’s a subliminal message in the Tangled poster. Personally, I think it’s a stretch, what say you? (Damn LOL)
This Princess Leia Slave Girl PSA comes courtesy of Optimus Rhyme. I have to agree, for my money, that
Cobra Commander Baroness costume is 1000x cooler than a boring old Leia outfit.

And, finally, compliments of Even Stevens here’s a supercut of Harrison Ford getting frantic (not tantric) about his family. Now I want to go watch The Fugitive
Joanna Robinson, much like Snickers, is guaranteed to satisfy.
