Zergnet: Simply Irresistable
So here’s a nice cliched situation for you on this Monday morning. Anna Shannon, the oldest sister of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” breakout star, Alana Thompson, has a one month old named Kaitlyn and apparently paternity is an issue. Anna’s ex-boyfriend strongly believes that he’s the daddy but the hillbilly family is not only refusing to let him see the child, but they are also avoiding a DNA test as well.
Caleb Clark has opted to do what any father looking for answers would do, he reached out to The National Enquirer (rather than pay for a DNA test) to spill the beans and no doubt profit from the redneck dilemma. Caleb also says that Anna confessed to him in a letter that she screwed around with someone else and that guy could very well be the father! Read more…

The hipster formula is as follows: If exclusivity is cool and hideous fashion is undesirable, then adopting hideous fashions because they are undesirable makes one exclusive. And this exclusivity, in turn, makes one cool. Now apply this philosophy to everything you own and… voila! You are a hipster! You will now be in the market for a Polaroid camera and declare that you were listening to bands no one’s heard of before it was cool to listen to bands no one’s heard of.
For those too square to know, hipsters are currently stuck on a nostalgic obsession with both the 1980s and 1880s, adopting the silliest and most anachronistic fashion choices of both simultaneously. The result is a horrifying mix of big glasses, curly mustaches, tight T-shirts and brimmed hats. We couldn’t help but notice that Shia LaBeouf’s Prohibition-era style in the new gangster film ”Lawless” looks oddly… contemporary. So we’ve compiled a look back at movie characters who didn’t realize they were being hip before anyone else was. Read more…
Abortion has been a hot-button topic for years, but it’s been resurrected as one of the most talked about issues this election season with debates about Planned Parenthood and Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” remark still ringing in our ears. The heated political and religious discourse on the issue of whether or not abortion should be legal has made it taboo in films and TV, so it’s not often that we see the issue honestly approached on screen. However, there have been some exceptions.
Without giving too much away, the dark comedy “Bachelorette,” out today, is one of those movies. In the film — starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Lizzy Caplan as high school BFFs reuniting for a girlfriend’s wedding— one of the characters opens up about an abortion from her teen years, and she even references one of the most iconic films about the same scenario, “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” Let’s look back at some of the memorable female characters who’ve wrestled with the decision to end a pregnancy on screen.
