Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Last night, while accepting the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in “The Fighter,” Melissa Leo made Oscar history. “I’m just shaking in my boots here,” she said, after doing some funny flirting with Kirk Douglas. “I am kind of speechless.

But Melissa is in good company. Here, other stars who’ve cursed during award show acceptance speeches.
- A video has been released of suspended Dior designer John Galliano slurring at patrons in a Parisian café with an anti-Semitic rant.

- Science explains everything, even cat ladies. But can science explain sad, creepy, old bachelors, too? [CNN]
- This weekend, 6,000 men and women — including Amelia! — gathered in New York City for a pro-choice march in support of Planned Parenthood. [Gothamist, Feministing]

- Alas, alack, human breast milk ice cream sold in London was short-lived. [Black Voices]
I’m walkin’ down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I’m bound, I can’t tell
But goodbye’s too good a word, gal
So I’ll just say fare thee well
Bob Dylan and Suze Rotolo on the cover of the former’s Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan represent the archetype of young, bohemian love. The two of them walking arm and arm down a wintry Greenwhich Village street is one of the most romantic images I can think of. Keep reading »
