It’s been quite the week online for me this week, kids. It’s been…shall we say…educational.
In no particular order, here are some things that the Internet taught me this week. Maybe it’s stuff you all already knew, but dang, this was news to this gal. And if you’re learning something new today, too: you’re welcome.
1. Brad Pitt is FIFTY YEARS OLD.
So you’ve probably heard by now that apparently Brangelina finally made it legal over the weekend. He (eventually) decided he liked it and so he put a ring on it. Or something. The one article I read about this (because really, I don’t care whether they’re married or not) is that Brad Pitt is fifty. Fifty.
Let’s stop for a minute to think about this long and hard, shall we?
Now, if I’d been stopped on the street and asked to guess his age, and I thought long and hard about it, I’m sure I would have come up with a number pretty close to that. But dang. FIFTY. How is that even possible? In my 40 year old brain, this is where Brad Pitt is forever frozen:
2. Hello Kitty is NOT a cat.
File this one under “I don’t really care.” But I do find it pretty entertaining how up in arms the Internets are about this one. Seems like the Internet needs to rage about something. Why not this?
3. Tony Soprano didn’t die in the finale. Or wait. Maybe he did. We still don’t know for sure.
I loved The Sopranos when it originally aired. When the series finale aired, I was riveted. The ending seemed clear to me — Tony got whacked.
But then early this week the headlines were screaming, “Tony Soprano didn’t die in the series finale!!” But then later the show’s creator kind of took it back again. The official word went back to the original explanation: Tony living or dying wasn’t really the point.
*cough* Bullshit *cough*
Spoiler alert: Tony Soprano is dead. There. Conversation over. You’re welcome.
4. There is a Facebook page dedicated to Jon Hamm’s penis.
I know, I know…..2007 called, welcoming me to the party. I just started watching Mad Men this week. I was home alone, looking for something to watch, and decided to give it a try. I’m not yet finished the first season and I am loving it.
And then this week I found out that Jon Hamm is rumored to have some…um…special assets. Or rather, one special asset in particular. So special in fact, it has its very own Facebook page. And now, I’ll be the first to admit that a big Bavarian Beefstick doesn’t really impress this gal. But….you know…natural human curiosity and all, and I’m finding myself face to face with Mr. Hamm’s Pantswombat.
I think I’ll keep watching Mad Men. Thanks.
Oh, Internet. How I love you sometimes.
