Fraud Has Laid Waste to Pajiba, The Integrity of the Site Has Been Breached

I have very unfortunate news to report. Late yesterday, Jerry A. Coyne — an Ecology and Evolution professor at the University of Chicago — breached the integrity of this very site. Coyne — the author of Why Evolution is True, and the blog of a similar name — is apparently a “kitten person.” Because he feels so passionate about his love of kittens, he called upon his readership to spoil, ruin, taint the results in our poll yesterday exploring the most important question on the Internet. Like many of you, when I went to bed last night, “Puppy People” was narrowly beating out “Kitten People.” When I woke up this morning, however, I discovered Kitten People had taken a commanding lead, thanks to Coyne’s voter fraud. He offered illegal incentives — an autographed copy of his book — if kitten people took the lead by noon today. This is a sad day in the history of Pajiba. I HOPE IT WAS WORTH IT, COYNE. YOU HAVE SPOILED THE SANCTITY OF THIS FINE INSTITUTION. (I’m just fucking with you, professor. Check out his book. It looks great). (Why Evolution is True)

Speaking of which, because I am if anything a populist: Here’s your kitten and puppy fix (25 Thumb Sucking Animals) and for the small minority of you, your baby fix (Learning “Fire Pit” is not “Fuck It”)

I like this Dan Seitz guy; he’s a smart fella. Here are 5 “Science Reports” We’re Tired of Hearing. Agreed! If someone tells you that X is bad for your children, they probably have an agenda, although the same is true if someone tells you that pink slime on your meat is totally, perfectly healthy.

The bad news: Gary Ross has dropped out of directing The Hunger Games sequel, citing his need to roll around in a bed of money. (FSR) On the flip side, “Game of Thrones” has been renewed for a third season, and they’re going to split the third novel into two seasons. (FSR)

Public citizen is miffed that hospitals are handing out free formula to new mothers, claiming it undermines successful breastfeeding. I’ll let Tracie Egan Morrissey handle the riposte: “What they failed to explain is why a woman’s decision regarding her own tits is anyone’s fucking business but her own.” Boom! Roasted. (Jezebel)

It’s been a weird years in my life of sports-fandom: First, my NFL team loses its QB, Peyton Manning, and now my alma mater fires its head coach because he’s a giant toolbag, but a giant toolbag with a 21-5 record over the last two seasons. WHY DO ALL SUPER RICH POWERFUL MEN FEEL THE NEED TO STICK THEIR DICKS WHERE THEY DO NOT BELONG? (Deadspin)

Speaking of Arkansas, Little Rock native Joey Lauren Adams runs down her IMDB filmography. It’s adorable. Interestingly, she says that the producers originally wanted Jon Stewart and Drew Barrymore for the leads in Chasing Amy. What if Stewart’s movie career had taken off? What if Craig Kilborn were still hosting “The Daily Show.” What if I’d never taken that left turn back in 1998?
