Why Does It Always Look Like Hugh Jackman Has An Eight Pack Of Abs?
Morning darjeelings! How many of you played that geography game in Friday’s P. Love? How many of you were terrible at it? I was so terrible. This may or may not help you in future games. It’s a map of What Countries Are Named For. Warning, I know for a fact Romania is in the wrong place. Give a heads up in the comments if anything else looks out of wack to you. (Reddit)
Speaking of out of wack, I don’t know what is up with ol’ Wolverine’s body, but it always looks to me like he has extra, dare I say, muntant-y muscles. Like, double triceps or treble lats. You be the judge. All I know is that I prefer him clothed, preferably in a tuxedo whilst belting out showtunes. WHAT?! (Celebitchy)
Okay, but after seeing this vintage photo of Rod Stewart in his bathing suit, I’ll never complain about Jackman again. NOT SAFE FOR WORK OR YOUR RETINAS OR KEEPING YOUR BREAKFAST DOWN. Also in this album? Bowie and his Scary Monster. No I do NOT mean Iman. (Flavorwire)
To wrap up the hat trick of fleshly links, here’s Dustin’s latest for Uproxx: Movie Poster Cleavage. So Dustin’s done movie poster cleavage (which everyone knows is MY job) and booty. What’s next, boss? Movie Poster Elbows? (Uproxx)
In that post, Dustin pays homage to Miss Scarlett and her Johanssons. Neither of which will be attending the Marine Ball. Listen, she is well within her rights to say no, and she was very polite about it. But, um, please read her response to see what’s she’s sending as a consolation prize and then shake your head. (Film Drunk)
Did you see Cowboys and Aliens this weekend? Did you enjoy it? Here is a cute little depiction of The Many Roles of Harrison Ford. I gotta say, I dig the Richard Kimble beard the mostest. (Blame It On The Voices)
And while we’re charting pop culture, here’s a smurfier option. A few weeks ago I was trying to come up with a Geek Color Wheel (eg TARDIS Blue, Clockwork Orange, Soylent Green, etc). Slate did me one better with this technicolor dream wheel of cartoonish hues. (Slate)
Speaking of the cartoonish, I love this Monty Python/Alien mash-up. Adorable and it makes me think of Spaceballs. (Society 6)
SOMEONE MADE A STREET LEGAL BATMOBILE?! HOLY CANILEASETHAT, BATMAN? HOLY WHATSTHEREFINANCERATE, BATMAN? (Discovery Channel)
Also, this cloning article happened. I can’t tell if it’s real or a joke or what’s going on half the time. But, frankly, that’s my reaction to a lot of things the Japanese produce. Racist? I hope not. But have you seen their game shows? WHAT IS THAT? (Danny Choo)
So, the debt ceiling thing that’s been going on…do you feel like you have a firm grasp on it? No? Let the folks over at the Awl put it in simple terms you can follow. (The Awl)
In case that didn’t help, allow Kristen Chenowith, Dulee Hill, Allison Janney and Richard Schiff to explain it.
Finally, thanks to mswas for this beautiful little animated film. I love it and not just because tiny, animated lambs are adorable.
Joanna Robinson misses “West Wing.” She misses Toby Ziegler. She does not, however, miss Charlie terribad moustache.
