A Back to School Round-Up!

Well, it's that time of year again. Time for everybody to go back to school. Well, not everybody. Not us for example. We're sitting around in our underwear making lists about pop culture, just like every other day of the year. So, while you're lugging a bunch of books around and studying and working hard, look on the bright side: We're not.


This week on the bloggingest blog that ever blogged, Gladstone's Hate By Numbers applauds Fox News for its journalistic integrity. With regards to cookies. Meanwhile, Bucholz presents you with some not-so-well-known facts about famous world leaders, while Swaim presents you with some not-so-true facts about some hopeful world leaders, and DOB asks to see Sarah Palin naked.



GIRL POWER?
Hollywood's 5 Saddest Attempts at Feminism
Dear Hollywood: When you try to write a strong female character, a) the men get bored and b) the women get offended. Please just keep making Robocop movies and everyone will be cool.

Notable Comment: erinyes says "Okay, i'm late to the party so let me be brief. The next time you insult River Tam, Zoe Washburne is going to kick your ass all the way around your sweaty fanboy offices. k?" We look forward to it. We'll even tie a hand behind our back to level the playing field for Zoe. (Because men are stronger than women!) And we'll put a wager to the fight: If we win, we get Zoe's paycheck and if she wins, we'll give half of our check. (They should be about the same amount because men will always make more money than women!) Aha, but seriously, we'll email Zoe a series of pictures that go over the ground rules for a fair fight. (Women are illiterate!) Oh, hey Erin, why were you 'late to the party' anyway? Cooking something? Was it because you're a terrible driver and couldn't find a spot? Something to do with your period? (Women are genetically inferior to men!) Whew. Boy, it feels good to wipe the taste of pro-feminism out of our mouths.

It's comforting to know that everyone president was an asshole. Not just, you know. Ours.
