Summer is the perfect time to kick back with a good book and no, you don’t have to read Crime And Punishment. I prefer a good graphic novel and I’m in luck: But I Really Wanted To Be An Anthropologist by French illustrator Margaux Motin was just published in English. Like me, you’ll lust after Margaux’s adorable French daughter, her hot husband, and enviably chic wardrobe. (At least, that’s how she draws it!) And if you like just-us-girls honesty here on The Frisky, you’ll love Margaux’s share-everything-no-matter-how-embarrassing tone. Grab a box of macaroons and a copy of Anthropologist for the cheapest trip to Paris you’ll ever take. [$19.01, Amazon.com]

Watch it, honey boo boo child!

Thank you to performer Greg Scarnici for breaking down the history of gay slang and the pop culture moments that inspired it. Starting with “Vogue” obviously. “Honey boo boo child” is still “major” for the time being. But come the next decade, I’ll look forward to the rise in popularity of the terms “ferosh like a broach,” “choking to death on a chicken bone” and “I was so happy my pussy leaked.” Sickening stuff, hunty! [WOW]

“Game Of Thrones” Cameo: Bush’s Severed Head

Sharp-eyed viewers may have noticed a familiar head on a spike in the 10th episode of Season 1 of ”Game of Thrones”—George W. Bush’s. A prop head of the former president was used as one of the traitors’ heads on spikes, the show’s creators say in their DVD commentary, explaining that its use wasn’t political, io9 reports. “George Bush’s head appears in a couple of beheading scenes,” they say. “It’s not a choice, it’s not a political statement. We just had to use whatever head we had around.” Read more…

I’ve written before about my obsession with “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International,” how I watch approximately three episodes per day, how much I love to hate it, how I always end up yelling at the TV like a crotchety old man because the subjects of the show tend to talk about paint colors in the kinds of hushed, serious voices usually reserved for presidents facing a nuclear crisis. But now I’m feeling crotchety for a different reason: apparently the show is totally fake. Here’s a quote from a former House Hunter describing her experience:

“They didn’t even ‘accept’ us being a subject for the show until we closed on the house we were buying.  So then when they decided to film our episode we had to scramble to find houses to tour and pretend we were considering. The ones we looked at weren’t even for sale…they were just our two friends’ houses who were nice enough to madly clean for days in preparation for the cameras!” Keep reading »
