Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings
Some believe that thousands of years from now, when people examine the things we post and share
on the Internet (the horror!), our collective obsession with cat photos will
mimic the Egyptians' feline-friendly hieroglyphics. While I’d hate to see this
century remembered for I Can Has Cheezburger, our cat fancy cannot be denied. Further
proof: Monopoly is replacing its iron piece (who knows what those are anymore,
anyway?!) with a cat.
Most Archer fans know the voices behind their
favorite ISIS staffers, but Vulture found the real-life inspiration for each animated character. How much tail do
you think Sterling doppelganger Jason Fitzgerald is getting?
rocked the Northeast last week, and we all know what that means for grocery
Is eye-posuction a
thing? Lil’ Kim debuted her latest face recently, and homegirl doesn’t even
look like the same species (perhaps she’s just another feline worshipper?). I’m
sure I’d do a lot of fucked up stuff to myself if I was a badass millionaire
rapper, but go under the knife to this point?
I think not. What happened to our demure, pasty-sporting, natural beauty?
another reinterpretation of Disney princesses.
People can’t get enough of that shit! Bust
recently featured artist Yudi Chen’s awesome male versions of classic princesses,
including “Cinderfella,” “The Little Merman” and
a bearded Rapunzel.
One of the most
annoying aspects of Facebook (and damn is
that saying something) is getting its own television incarnation — Farmville:
the TV show (via Videogum).
Who could forget
Sweet Brown, the 2012 Internet sensation from Oklahoma City, Okla. whose spirited news interview post-apartment
fire went viral? You may know her from the “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That”
meme. Few surpass meme status, but Sweet Brown booked herself a dentist
commercial! Via Dlisted:
If you’re an Always Sunny fan, you know all about the
D.E.N.N.I.S. System, Dennis Reynold’s method for luring and abandoning women,
aka “erotic conquests.” Find your own system for torturing romantic pursuits

Just in time for
Valentine’s Day! (Thanks, Hannah!)
An Internet hacker
known as Guccifer recently published photos and “sensitive correspondence” from
the Bush family, including both former presidents. The most interesting find?
Evidence of Dubya’s interest in the arts. Via The Smoking Gun:
Yes, this appears
to be a self-portrait of GWB in the shower. All together now: Bush-hacked!
Now, look at all
this stuff fitting perfectly into unrelated stuff: http://thingsfittingperfectlyintothings.tumblr.com/

television characters are so ridiculous, yet somehow so true-to-life, we
have a hard time separating the actor from the role. Like Tina Fey’s
Liz Lemon or Steve Carell’s Michael Scott, comedian Danny McBride has
truly made Eastbound and Down’s Kenny Powers an extension of himself. (Go ahead, make a boner joke — Kenny would.)

When filmmaker George Romero directed 1968’s Night of the Living Dead,
he surely had no clue zombies would turn into a cultural phenomenon.
While tons of horror films give way to camp, sex or bad special effects,
Living Dead remains a classic and has prompted a cult of the zombie-obsessed.
