Ryan Gosling Compares Himself To Pigeon Murdered By Fabio’s Face

Ryan's Hiatus

“I don’t think it’s really about me … I think it really is sort of like, I’m a pigeon and the Internet is Fabio and it just happened.”

– Okay, so for those of you who are reading this quote like, “WTF is Ryan Gosling talking about? A pigeon? Fabio?” allow me to explain. Back in 1999, Fabio — yes, Fabio, romance novel cover model — was riding a rollercoaster when a pigeon flew directly into his face, splatting its blood and guts across his visage. In the same vein, Ryan Gosling and internet meme phenomena are two things that just happened to cross paths — in his words, he was in “the wrong place at the wrong time” — and explode. Fantastic analogy, Ryan. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Tropical Storm Fabio Is The Sexiest Storm Ever

"I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!"
Margarine names are getting weirder and weirder... Read More »

My tropical storm has a first name, it’s F-A-B-I-O! But really you guys, the latest weather system ravaging its way across the Pacific is named Fabio. So far the storm doesn’t pose a threat to any land besides a tiny island, so you don’t have to feel weird about any sexual feelings this swirling mass of wind and rain might be bringing up for you. Apparently “Fabio” has been on the World Meteorological Organization’s list of storm names since 1982, when it replaced “Fico,” the name of a particularly devastating hurricane. According to The Weather Channel, 1982′s Hurricane Fabio “followed a path similar to the one expected for this year’s Fabio, staying well offshore. Afterward, Fabio returned every six years. Storms named Fabio brought locally heavy rainfall to Hawaii as remnant lows in 1988, 1994, and 2006, while the 2000 version of Fabio was a tropical storm that affected no land.”

As much as I like to think the storm-naming meteorologists had a thing for bodice rippers, the Weather Channel points out, “Fabio’s first appearance on the cover of a romance novel was for Hearts Aflame in 1987…So it would appear that ‘Fabio’ the storm came before ‘Fabio’ the model and actor.” [The Weather Channel]

The New Old Spice Guy Is … Fabio?

 

In a sea of commercials where skimpily dressed sorority girls try to sell me beer, I’ve depended on the Old Spice Guy for that hottie fix I need to keep me from TiVo-ing away. There was the Isaiah Mustafa era (those were the days!) and then this guy, who was kind of a letdown. Now the new Old Spice Guy is … Fabio.

Really, Old Spice, you went from Isaiah Mustafa to Fabio? No offense, Fab, you’ve got great hair — incredible hair, really! — but this is not working for me. [YouTube] Keep reading »
