Kelly normally does the afternoon link round-up but she’s not in today. Well the hell if I am going to do it! You cannot fire a man who has nothing left to lose. Also, it is Friday, and so naturally I named the above file image “jeobardpy.jpg” when I saved it to my desktop. Lordy bagordy! If anyone has seen anything cool on the Internet that they would like to share with the rest of us, please do so in the comments, but I bet you haven’t even. I bet you this post doesn’t even get one comment with one link and I dare anyone to prove me wrong. You wrestle with the comments you’re not going to get wet with links because the Internet is boring and WHEN OH WHEN WILL THAT CLOSING WHISTLE BLOW?! (Image via Tumblr.)

  1. Meryl Streep is a wonderful charming actress who for some reason agreed to be on Andy Cohen’s Watch My Swinging Dungeon Live program — and BILLY EICHNER got to be the bartender!!!!!! Do you think you should click through? I’m not your mom. But probably!*

  7. I don’t know… but THIS:

  8. In case you haven’t had enough “Call Me Maybe” today, here’s the “Star Trek: TNG” version.

    • Honestly, my issue with this is not what he said about Matthew Bomer (although that is a dumb argument), but that he referred to 50 Shades of Grey as ‘too big a game.’ This isn’t exactly the casting call for Scarlett O’Hara, Ellis.

      • Exactly!! What the hell are you even talking about Bret Easton Ellis? If the 50 Shades of Grey adaptation is our “big game” I think something something something the Most Dangerous Game. (I really wanted to figure out a way to work a Most Dangerous Game joke in here guys, but I’m too tired to do it. YOU do it. Shut up! IDoWhatIWant.gif.)

        • Can I agree in theory, but for different reasons? I really like Matthew Bomer on White Collar (and didn’t know he was gay until Wikipedia told me, so suck on THAT, BEE), and I don’t want him to impugn his dignity by being in Fifty Shades Of Grey.

        • I will hunt Matthew Bomer in my own personal remake of The Most Dangerous Game. Or maybe just stalk. Not to kill, but just to watch from afar. Maybe kind of nearby? At least through some bushes or a tree. And the only real danger in this game is me getting arrested. Fortunately I’ve done a lot of research on Alcide so this should play out pretty well…

    • Honestly, this makes me SO ANGRY. I owned all of those books, and I remember bits and pieces of the stories, but no specifics. I DO, however, remember those illustrations VERY clearly. They are the biggest reason the book became famous in the first place!

      • THOSE PICTURES WERE SO CREEPY and that’s why we loved them.

        Also, one of the Scary Stories books has given me a lifelong phobia of the Wendigo. I thought I had to be over it and read a different Wendingo story last year, but nope! STILL HORRIFYING AND I’LL JUST BE HERE UNDER MY BED FOREVER.

      • YES. Totally agreed. I never owned that book, but some of my friends did and I know it left an indelible imprint of terror on their memory. I saw the pictures for the first time not too long ago and they are very scary indeed. I don’t know what the point of changing the pictures is, honestly.

  9. I can’t post the link because my work blocks twitter, but look up SarcasticRover on the tweets. It’s perfect. “I hope I discover water on this planet… so I can drown myself in it. #fml”

  10. If I were Kelly I would tell you to NOT click on the following link because it contains something about a spider. However, this story horrified me and made me laugh at the same time, because the spider is very “O hai!”

    • READ AT YOUR OWN RISK I once dated a doctor (total brag-o) and he told me a story about finding a bug in someone’s ear canal once. He’s terrified of bugs and threw the ear-looking-thing (whatever dude, you know what I mean) across the room then calmly walked out to get a nurse to take care of it.

  11. I told someone about women laughing with salads and they came back with this gem.

  12. ayo where the monster commentator ball at? need to find out who won best comment of the week and who got worst comment, pretty important matters
