She's So Dramatic, I Want to Set Myself On Fire


Happy Monday, y'all.  Let's start things off with a laugh or two, shall we?  This tumblr mashes up images of Lucille Bluth from "Arrested Development" with actual quotes from Mitt Romney.  It's unreal how easily you could be fooled into thinking that these are quotes from the show instead.  (Lucille and Mitt)

I will never look at Joe Flacco the same way again after seeing this NFL quarterbacks/Muppets comparison.  If I ever hear him call someone a "weirdo," I might die of laughter.  (BuzzFeed)

Last night's Emmys were a mostly low-key affair, with few surprises (yay for Louis CK!) and many disappointments (how on Earth did Amy Poehler not win??).  Let's focus on the fun stuff today: the gowns.  Both EW and Tom and Lorenzo are offering up the best and worst looks from the red carpet.

College Humor offers up "more accurate" titles for some of the new shows airing this fall.  The suggestion for "Animal Practice" is perfect.  (College Humor)  

I guess Lady Gaga has gained some weight recently.  Why is that a big deal?  Oh, right, because she's famous and god forbid famous people have realistic bodies.  Whatever.  (US Weekly)
Beyond bringing us closer to our friends and entertaining us with the latest memes, social media is also changing diplomacy as we know it.  (Mashable)

If you buy your peanut butter at Trader Joe's, you're going to need to check your jar because the company is recalling the Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter due to risk of salmonella poisoning.  (NBC News)

This cartoonist is so close - so close! - to getting into the Guinness Book of World Records for his hand-drawn maze... if only he can find someone to help him out!  (Neatorama)

Twitter fans of Comic Book Resources sent in suggestions of comic book characters who would fit right into the world of Stephen King's books.  Then, CBR asked several artists to illustrate the best responses.  Some of the results are brilliant - that Scarecrow/Children of the Corn mashup would make a hell of a good movie!  (CBR)

The Fug Girls did their damnedest to figure out what Martha Stewart is wearing here and why.  I'm still puzzled myself.  (Go Fug Yourself)

Can you guess what music video is currently the most liked YouTube video in the world?  (Vulture)

Move over, food trucks - the latest mobile businesses are offering you everything from karaoke to grooming (for you or for your pets!) on-the-go.  (Time)

The iPhone 5 came out last week, and two tricksters in Amsterdam decided to play a little joke on the eager crowds.  All I can think is, I hope that's a fake, because $600 is a lot to throw away on a prank like that!
