Oooh. That’s no good. Who thought this was a good advertisement to put in downtown Manhattan? I love “Mad Men” as much as the next latte-drinking, Volvo-driving, East Coast liberal and I know the image of man in a suit falling from the sky in the opening credits is powerful iconography tied to the show. But even I’ll admit this particular image is awfully evocative of 9/11 (emphasis on “awful”) and the victims who jumped from the Twin Towers to the deaths. To many people, myself included, a man in a suit falling from the sky like that can only mean one thing and, God bless Matt Weiner, but not acknowledging that is just a tad insensitive.  What do readers think? [Copyranter via Crushable]

10 Animals We Would Keep As Pets If They Weren’t Extinct, Illegal Or Generally Inadvisable

Between videos of tiny monkeys twirling umbrellas, pictures of baby pandas, and the recent headline that scientists have discovered “Hasselhoff Crabs” in Antarctica, it’s obvious that our world is full of weirdly awesome animals. How could we not yearn to keep some as inappropriate pets? Here is a roundup of the strange and adorable animals we would totally keep in our apartments if it wasn’t a terrible idea…

Finally, New Episodes Of “Glee,” “New Girl” & “Raising Hope” Return

Watch Video

Hi, did you have plans for this evening? I did, but then I canceled them because A) it’s pouring rain, B) it’s freezing out, and C) Fox is airing new episodes of “Glee,” “New Girl,” and “Raising Hope” tonight. So I’m making excuses and going home to sit around in my undies, paint my nails, and watching the boob tube like the rockstar that I am.  Keep reading »

New Year, New You at The Frisky has focused on ways to improve our outward appearance by dressing more adventurously, dragging our doughy carcass to spin class, and upping the fabulosity quotient. It’s also explored how to grow in relationships and at work through standing up for ourselves, being more productive, and making the first move. But what about our inner world? After we’ve found the perfect shade of red lipstick, cleaned out our closets, and told a passive-aggressive friend to chill out, what comes next? Well, I propose in 2012 that we try to expose ourselves to newer genres of literature we’ve never experienced before. It’s fine to read the blockbuster novel du jour that make the bestseller list — i.e. The Da Vinci Code, The Pillars of the EarthThe Hunger Games, etc. — but this year, why not try something new?

Face-Off: Lindsay Lohan & Megan Fox Fight To Play Elizabeth Taylor

Lilo Loves Liz
The actress is hoping to play Taylor in a Lifetime movie. Read More »

Oh, I cringe. I’m sure you’ve already heard about the upcoming Lifetime made-for-TV movie called “Liz and Dick,” chronicling the trials and tribulations of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s on-again off-again marriage and life together. Lindsay Lohan was the first actress revealed to be in talks for the role last week, directly from the mouth of the film’s executive producer Larry Thompson. Rumor has it Lindsay would die for the role, and who wouldn’t? Now it’s looking like Lohan, who hasn’t had an acting role since she appeared in 2010′s “Machete,” is going to be facing some pretty tight competition in the form of one Megan Fox. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that neither of these actresses scores the part when the contract is signed as early as next week. For the love of Liz! [Celeb Dirty Laundry]
