The weekly-ish roundup of internet awesomeness:
- This picture of McKayla Maroney and President Obama doing “not impressed” faces pretty much makes my life.
- Lesser-Known Paradoxes from McSweeney’s. I love Franklin’s Paradox.
- These illustrations are clever and fun: Important People Drinking Coffee.
- In an onslaught of post-election articles and analysis, I particularly enjoyed this story: The Malia Generation. Also, on an unrelated, superficial note – both Malia and Sasha had such cute outfits on election night.
- One more election thing: this is the best GIF I’ve seen. Ever.
- Everything I Need to Know, I Learned from Love, Actually. Obviously true.
- I am strongly considering downloading the Baby-Sitters Club e-books when they come out in December. I hope I wasn’t alone as a child in seriously wishing my friends and I would have been awesome enough to start our own baby-sitters club.
- This review of Guy Fieri’s new Times Square restaurant is so hilariously mean that I’m almost convinced it was crafted by Anthony Bourdain, writing under a pen name.
- Speaking of Bourdain…Product placement on TV drives me insane, so this rant – while lengthy – is definitely worth a read.
- An awesome infographic of commonly misunderstood song lyrics. This is a good compilation, but unfortunately it leaves out the lyric I got wrong for years – Del Amitri’s “Roll to Me.” Until quite recently, I thought the song went “the right time, the wrong me,” which, in my defense, I find more clever than the actual lyrics.
