I love reading about how clever trending hashtags are born. The Daily Dot has a post about the currently trending #MensRightsMovies hashtag, which was born out Aaminah Khan‘s punning tweet about bronies, above. The hashtag took off almost instantly, with hundreds of others contributing their own hilarious anti-woman/anti-feminist/pro-MRA spins on popular movie titles. Check out some of our faves, after the jump! [The Daily Dot] Keep reading »
Despite Twitter CEO Dick Costolo‘s best efforts to convince us that the company’s all-male, all-white board (and mostly all-male management team) isn’t an issue, this flier appeared in the women’s restroom at the Twitter’s offices in San Francisco today. Engineering Manager Jill Wetzler tweeted, what is most likely an invitation for some kind of Oktoberfest happy hour, with the caption: “Seen on a sign in the @twoffice. In the women’s bathroom no less. Think this is directed at me? #facepalm.” As Alanis Morissette would say, “Isn’t it ironic?” [Business Insider]
We already know teenage pop fandom to be crazy, particularly in the contemporary cases of Beliebers and Directioners, but is it this crazy? Now, full disclaimer: nobody seems to know if this is real, but if it is … there may very well be no hope for the human race.

Birthdays in the Carey-Cannon house sure are a lot of fun. There’s cake, party hats, and sharing your breasts with all of Twitter! In celebration of Nick Cannon’s 33rd birthday today, wifey Mariah tweeted a picture of her black bra-clad breasts underneath an unbuttoned shirt, her face seductively turned off to one side. Sure beats a new set of golf clubs, huh, Nick?
These two are so cute it’s almost nauseating (almost — hey, at least someone in Hollywood is still in love!). But I really feel bad for their twins Monroe and Morroccan when they get older. You know Nick and Mariah are going to be the ones whose kids are constantly going, “Ew, MOM AND DAD, GROSS!” [TooFab]
I haven’t seen “Gravity” yet, but I’m eager to, as I love movies about space and the reviews have, for the most part, been really, really good. But one person wasn’t necessarily so impressed with the accuracy of Alfonso Cuaron’s cinematic vision — renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Tyson tweeted up a storm after seeing the film last night, hilariously pointing out some of the movie’s flaws from a, you know, scientific perspective. See some of my favorites (beware of potential spoilers!) after the jump! Keep reading »
