All hail the unibrow, the magical confluence of two eyebrows into one. It takes a confident person to resist the urge to pluck, wax, laser or shave the bridge between two brows. College basketball player Anthony Davis is one of the few, the proud, the unibrowed. I’m not a sports fan, but I am a unibrow fan, and I have a feeling that somehow, Anthony’s unibrow will make him the number one draft pick. I mean, I’m sure he’s a good athlete too. “I don’t let it bother me at all,” Davis said of his monobrow. “I embrace it.” That’s the spirit, Anthony. Click through to see some more famous unibrows. We bow to the brow. [Chicago Sun Times]
Is there ever going to be a chink in Zooey Deschanel’s cool armor? On a recent appearance of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” she revealed her ties to my all-time favorite television show, “Twin Peaks.” Her mother, Mary Jo Deschanel, played Eileen Hayward, who you may remember better as Donna’s (Lara Flynn Boyle) mother. As if that weren’t enough, Zooey’s father directed a bunch of episodes. So she basically grew up on the set. I was willing to overlook Zooey’s perfect bangs, her closet full of vintage dresses, her indie music career. I was willing to chalk it all up to good luck and good genes. But this I cannot overlook. She grew up romping around the red room, playing patty cake with the log lady, having burgers at the Double R Diner. Not fair! I’m incredibly jealous. There, I said it. [Buzzfeed]
Breaking news in the world of flavored syrups. This April, Torani is releasing a Chicken N’ Waffles flavored syrup. So now you can add that “is is chicken or is it waffles?” allure to your latte. Or sandwich or ice cream sundae or cocktail. This sounds so strangely, disgustingly delicious. I need to taste it right away. Starbucks is totally gonna make a Chicken N’ Waffles Latte. [Torani]
Ladies, in case you weren’t aware, while that teeny tiny egg makes its way down your fallopian tubes, your hormones are making you do all kinds of weird crap you have no awareness of. It’s like an alien inhabits your body and coerces it into behavior that you would never dream of the other 27 days of the month.

The main thing I measure an animal’s cuteness by is its fluff factor. The less you can see of its face, the better. Cody has a great fluff-to-face ratio, which makes him appealing to me. But he has other things going for him, namely his howl. How in God’s name does he make that noise? He sounds like a grown man going bungee jumping. He just sounds absolutely terrified. Which leads me to my secondary measure of animal cuteness: how awkward it is. I feel an intense connection with any animal that’s just a little bit odd. Duh, because I am a little bit odd. Cody, you shall be mine. [Buzzfeed]
This is the perfect marriage proposal for a taco lover. Is that pork and shrimp in there? And hopefully a ring? All you have to do is take a bite if your answer is yes. Oh, and it’s probably best to propose when she’s hungry. [Neatorama]
