Things That Are Awesome, Vol. 26

(Images via Entertainment Weekly)

The kinda-weekly roundup of internet gems:

  1. I admit it: I”m semi-obsessed with the Hunger Games. That’s why I find this map of Panem fascinating. The amount of detail and the careful thought process the makers put into it is amazing.
  2. And one more Hunger Games thing – posters for the movie, if it had been directed by other famous directors. So good. I think I like the Nancy Meyers one best: “She’s been chosen…but can she choose?”
  3. This will sound dorky, but it drives me crazy when people don’t use the Oxford comma. Here’s a good reason why.
  4. One of the most emblematic parts of my childhood? American Girl dolls. Here’s a piece I completely identify with.
  5. One Tiny Hand. This is both really creepy and completely hilarious.
  6. Another week, another set of cute dog pictures – The Bizarre Ways That Dogs Like to Sleep. Too cute not to post.
  7. I used to work as a writing tutor during college, so I found this particularly hilarious: Lines from The Princess Bride that Double as Comments on Freshman Composition Papers. “You keep using this word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
  8. A 12-year-old rants against plain donuts. Hilarious. Sample line: “It’s just a BAGEL! A BAGEL!”
  9. Zoopreme Court: pictures of Supreme Court justices as animals. This will be funny to approximately no one but me.
  10. Between the return of Mad Men last Sunday and the return of Game of Thrones this one, it’s a pretty great few weeks to be a TV lover. Sunday is Coming.
