Zooey Deschanel: You Say Adork-able, I Say One Pot Of Boiling Water Away From Cooking Your Pets-able

We’ve spent a lot of time writing about SOPA/PIPA the past couple days. And rightly so. A) We care. B) We here at Pajiba are too pretty and sensitive for prison. (Except, let’s be honest, TK, who will thrive there.) Although the source of this particular bit of SOPA news is unreliable (Nikki “I Just Make Sh*t Up” Finke), I do not doubt that several Hollywood power players are pissed at Obama for his anti-SOPA stance. That they’re expressing their displeasure by withdrawing money from his campaign surprises me even less. (Deadline)

Speaking of Hollywood and patriotism, Mark Wahlberg seems to think that, given the chance, he could have stopped the terrorists on 9/11. Really, Marky? I saw that movie where the angry trees (angry…trees) had you on the run. I’m not impressed. (Evil Beet)

You want a real Hollywood badass? Try Clint Eastwood on for size. Read about how, when he was only 21, Clint braved shark-infested waters to survive a plane crash. (The Scuttlefish)

I’m not sure we covered this bit of news on Pajiba yet, but you may have heard by now that, in an O. Henry-esque twist of fate, butter advocate Paula Deen has been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. (For Anthony Bordain’s vitriolic reaction, click here.) Now, while I knew Paula Deen’s reputation, I had never actually taken a look at her recipes. Here are seven that may make you drop dead on the spot. (ScreenJunkies)

Listen, adults, no matter what Daniel Radcliffe says, it’s okay to love “Harry Potter.” It’s just not okay to love Harry Potter. Here’s someone who’s taken it Pottermania a tidge too far. (The Offbeat Home)

I don’t know how you will feel about this Calvin and Hobbes/Spider-man mash up, but I, personally, am choosing to fantasize about Topher Grace being my imaginary childhood friend. Mmmmmmm. (Unreality)

When it all gets to be too much, my wee little misanthropes, here are 10 icy and impenetrable snow fortresses where you can wallow in solitude…and frosty beers! (Nerd Approved)

Have you ever wondered about the etymology behind “cool” “hip” and “groovy”? Well wonder no longer. Also, look, M.C. Skat Kat! (Mental Floss)

Our very own book maven, mswas, sent me this incredible footage from a “Quantum Leap” convention. So many questions! First of all, what were NPH and Jason Priestley doing there? Oh boy. (io9)

Speaking of shows about history (shut up, “Quantum Leap” is educational!), historian Simon Schama has slammed ITV’s “Downton Abbey” for its historical inaccuracies. Oh, silly Schama, we don’t watch for the history, we watch for the dead naked Turks. While I will agree that there is a lot poppycock in the show (and I don’t particularly like creator Julian Fellowes’ politics), Schama makes out like it’s “Jersey Shore.” Also? He slams Americans. NOT COOL. (BBC)

Because we Americans have enough of our own sh*tty TV to keep us entertained, thank you very much. For instance, the super dumb, super pretty “Hart Of Dixie” which Dustin watches because he has a crush on Rachel Bilson. After this stupid but cute rap video, you may too. Plus! A soaking wet Jason Street! (Warming Glow)

Speaking of cute brunettes, I had a revelation while watching The Golden Globes. I’m really pretty certain, guys, that Zooey Deschanel is completely batsh*t. There was a scary scary glint in her eyes I’d never noticed before. Is she a darling little pin-up? Yes. (GossipCenter) Would she murder something you love if you scorned her? My sources say…”Adorkapositively.” (Vulture)

Speaking of cute, murderous things, here’s a mash-up of Home Alone and We Need To Talk About Kevin. Macaulay is, without a doubt, the scariest Culkin.
