“Well, everyone knew [Joan's husband] had to go at some point, right? I mean, you can’t rape your wife in the office and not expect to go away. … It was the first time it was mentioned and I think it was a long time coming, for the audience in particular. I think everyone kept thinking he was going to go off to war and die at war. But I think Matt [Weiner] probably had a very good time keeping him around while people were going, ‘What’s going on with this guy?’ [Laughs] And he just kept being there and he just kept coming home! And I would have been disappointed if there wasn’t a moment that the rape, and that instant, wasn’t mentioned. So I found it very satisfying that she finally got to say, ‘You’re not a good man. And you know exactly what I’m talking about.’ And every viewer knows exactly what you’re talking about too, so it’s just this very satisfying moment.”

– Christina Hendricks talks to GQ about Joan Holloway Harris’s soon-to-be-ex douchebag doctor husband, who raped her in season two. There have been more than a few rapes and sexual assaults on “Mad Men,” but Joan’s was probably the most shocking. Not every person saw it as rape because they were engaged, seemingly a happy couple together, and she’s such a sexual woman. Yet Joan clearly didn’t want to have sex inside Don Draper’s office and her then-fiancé forced himself on her anyway, so viewers not only had to confront the fact that Joan’s “perfect man” was not as perfect as we thought, but also that date rape is a thing that happens, including by people you love.

Having A Bad Day? It’s Nothing Compared To This Little Guy’s

Sure, maybe you owe the IRS a lot of money, or your boyfriend just broke up with you. But you didn’t accidentally get yourself stuck in the exhaust system of a car. That’s what happened to this little two-month-old kitten, who miraculously lived through the ordeal (phew!). The car’s owner found the little guy wedged in the car’s exhaust system and assumed that he was dead so he drove him to a local mechanic to be cut out. The mechanic then discovered that the animal was still alive, and he was rushed to a nearby animal sanctuary for emergency intestinal surgery. He’s currently recovering there, and will hopefully be adopted by someone who prefers to travel via bicycle. [Metro]

7 Ways To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse, Single Or Coupled Up

A homeless guy gets most of his face eaten by a crazy, naked cannibal under a bridge in Miami. A Japanese artist removes his own genitals and serves them up on a plate. The Chinese are eating roasted fetuses. The 24-year-old woman who lost body parts to a flesh-eating virus? Terrifying! We thought this stuff only belonged in campy zombie movies and “The Simpsons” ”Treehouse Full Of Horror” Halloween specials.* Read more…

Frisky Q&A: Talking Love & Turtles With “Call Of The Wildman” Star Ernie “The Turtleman” Brown Jr.

Be My Boyfriend: Turtleman
Why Julie loves the "Call of the Wildman" star. Read More »

Sometimes dreams do come true, like the time that I wrote about Ernie “The Turtleman” Brown Jr. and he came to our office and hung out and visited with us all day. The Turtleman, if you’re unfamiliar, is the host and star of “Call of the Wildman,” an awesome show on Animal Planet. In it, The Turtleman traps all manner of wild animals and safely removes them from people’s yards, houses and swamps (some people have swamps). His catchphrase is “Live action!” which he will shout at you with a joy and exuberance most of us reserve for our favorite bands or gifts under the tree on Christmas morning. Not Turtleman. He lives every day like this, and watching him catch possums, or remove snakes, is totally entertaining!

We talked to The Turtleman about turtles, life in his native Kentucky, and asked him for dating and relationship advice. Because, we figured, chasing turtles all those years is bound to teach you a thing or two. See what he had to say, after the jump!

Face-Off: “Mad Men”‘s Peggy Olson & “Girls”‘ Hannah Horvath Are Kind Of The Same Person

Okay, before you tell me I am totally reaching with this one, hear me out. The other day, after watching this week’s episodes of “Mad Men” and “Girls,” I was trolling Tumblr when I came across a post by Jenny Deluxe (who happens to write for The New York Times, so she obvs has a well-trained, journalistic mind) comparing the smile both Peggy Olson and Hannah Horvath displayed at the ends of their episodes. “DAT LOOK ON BOTH THEIR FACES. Mad Girls do it WELL,” Jenny wrote. She was right. A look of smug, gleeful satisfaction capped off both Peggy and Hannah’s episodes. Did they have more in common that I failed to notice before? Indeed! Spirit sistersMad Girls! – I tell you! [Jenny Deluxe]
