Biography.com's "Week in Review" highlights interesting people who've made the news this past week—thanks to their endeavors, big ideas, triumphs, importance in history, or magnanimous gaffes. While there were many people to choose from this week, here are our top picks that made us either raise an eyebrow, roll our eyes, shed a tear, or just gave us a good chuckle.
Hey Peeps, Paul Ryan's Meme Is Back
Now that Paul Ryan is officially on the VP market, the meme-o-sphere via Tumblr is all aflutter. After a quick sabbatical, "Hey Girl, It's Paul Ryan" is back in business with some new quips that'll make all you fiscally conservative ladies giggle like coquettes.
Wanna know what you're in for? Here's some sampling:
"Hey Girl, I have a definite interest in your assets."
“Hey Girl, what's that? You want to spend your own money? I'm on it."
"Don't worry, Girl, your grandma and your wallet's safe with me."
We don't know about you, but we're thinking the "Hey Girl, It's Joe Biden" meme better step up its game because those Young Baby Blues is stealing Old Blue Eyes' thunder.

So what does this really mean? We predict—as is custom with celebrity news coverage and the stalkerazzi frenzy—that Jennifer and Angelina Jolie will soon be in fierce bridezilla competition to beat each other to the altar! And who knows? Maybe Angelina's right leg, which debuted at this year's Oscars with such lascivious aggression, will rear its Gumby stance again!
Fortunately, for Team Jen, she already beats Angie in the marital moniker department: Mrs. Jennifer Aniston Theroux...so Transcendentally hot, if you ask us.
