Shirley Temple

Shirley Temple, the legendary child star of the 1930s, has passed away at the age of 85. The actress-turned-ambassador died Monday night surrounded by her family in her home near San Francisco.

Temple was a shining light in the darkness that was the Great Depression, and was one of the top box office performers from 1935 to 1938, even beating out some of the greatest actors ever to live such as Clark Gable, Gary Cooper, Joan Crawford, Bing Crosby, and Robert Taylor. Her work in movies like Curly Top and The Littlest Rebel helped to save 20th Century Fox from bankruptcy.

The Satanic Temple Satan Monument design for Oklahoma Capitol

Wouldn’t you like to take your children to sit on Satan’s lap?

If so, then you might be in luck, as the congregants of The Satanic Temple are hoping to make that a reality. The New York-based religious organization has officially submitted a design proposal for a satanic statue at the Oklahoma state Capitol to “complement and contrast” a Ten Commandments monument that currently resides on the public grounds.

The proposed statue would feature a 7-foot-tall rendering of Baphomet, the goat-headed winged Satanic deity, sitting cross-legged on a throne under a pentagram with a child on both sides of him. “The lap will serve as a seat for visitors,” read the description in The Satanic Temple’s application.

Star Trek Klingon

Today is a good day to resign in Klingon – if you’re North Carolina Councilman David Waddell, who submitted his letter of resignation in the fictional Star Trek language, stepping down from his position on the Indian Trail Town Council.

Waddell’s resignation was not only written in Klingon, but it also captured the true spirit of the warrior race, promising the Councilman’s eventual and victorious return.

Here’s the English translation of the letter:

Teach (the) city (the) constitution. I will return next time to witness victory. Resignation occurs in 2014 the 31st of January. Perhaps today is a good day (to) resign.

Rob Ford/Chris Farley Mashup

The more that Toronto mayor Rob Ford does, the bigger the spotlight on him grows. If you’ve followed his wild and wacky story at all, chances are that you or someone you know have thought to yourself once or twice or constantly that Chris Farley, were he still alive, could have given us some great Saturday Night Live skits impersonating Ford.

Now comes a YouTube mashup that proves that everyone who has thought this is 100% correct. The video alternates clips of Ford doing what he does and some of Farley’s work.

You can check it out below. NSFW warning is in effect.

‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Emilia Clarke’s Image Misused In Russian Political Ad

Game of Thrones 3.4 And Now His Watch Is Ended

A photo of actress Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game Of Thrones, was misused in an election ad for United Russia politician Yakov Silin, according to the Daily Mail. The ad, which is for Silin’s campaign for Mayor of the industrial city of Yekaterinburg, identifies the 26-year-old British actress as a 24-year-old local woman named Anya and was used without permission.

In the ad, which contains an anti-rape message, “Anya” states, “I now have confidence that the city is safe, that no-one will attack me or rape me,” along with other quotes about how she’s “not afraid to walk at night in Yekaterinburg.”

Russian web users immediately saw past the farce and reportedly bombarded Silin’s website with sarcastic messages about the ad, which shows Clarke with her natural brunette locks as opposed to the platinum blonde tresses she sports as the Mother of Dragons on Game Of Thrones.

President Obama Jedi Mind Meld

Do you know that meme that shows an image of Star Trek‘s Captain Picard with a quote from Star Wars (“Use the Force, Luke”) attributed to Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series? It’s a pretty popular meme meant to not only incite a geek frenzy, but also to set off facepalms across the universe.

On Friday, President Obama, who’s known for his love of Star Trek and other geeky franchises, inadvertently triggered a collective facepalm and inspired a meme of his own after he combined Star Wars and Star Trek references during a press conference at The White House.

Speaking to the press, the President stated that he couldn’t use a “Jedi Mind Meld” to make Republicans in Congress go along with his budget proposal to avert a sequester.

Death Star

The U.S. Government has recently instituted a process by which citizens can officially petition the White House on any issue that they feel is important via the internet, thanks to a program called We the People. Any petition that receives 25,000 signatures within a certain time frame will receive an official response from the White House.

Now, this is a great way for ordinary people to bring their everyday issues to the forefront and is a great example of what technology can do right. However, it’s also the internet, which means there are going to be a lot of goofy petitions started. This brings us to a petition that was started requesting the government to “secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016”!

Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan chose to take the stage at a Pennsylvania rally with Twisted Sister’s 1984 hit “We’re Not Gonna Take It” blasting in the background and Twisted Sister front man Dee Snider is none too pleased.

In a statement relayed through his manager, Snider said, “I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan’s use of my band Twisted Sister’s song, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It,’ in any capacity,” adding that, “there is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X.”
