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.

Just when you thought the "Jennistin" coverage was dying down, they done plan on getting marrrieeed. (Did you hear that? That's the sound of us breaking glass as we charge head first through a 20th-story window.) Justin Theroux asked his gf of 15 months, Jennifer Aniston, to marry him on his birthday at Blue Hill Restaurant in NYC. 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. Source: E! Online In Memoriam: Helen Gurley Brown Dead at 90
All the single ladies, all the single ladies...put their hands up for proud feminist and famous Cosmopolitan Ed-in-Chief Helen Gurley Brown, who died Monday at the age of 90 in Manhattan.

Never mind Michael Phelps' provocative Speedo-wearing bathtub shot for Louis Vuitton—Tim Tebow takes things a step further by trying to mix sexy with a sacred biblical image. GQ's latest issue shows the Jets footballer posing, as if crucified on a cross like Christ, whilst revealing his manly aerolae and six pack. No big deal or touch down(!) blasphemy?

Not until the advent of 90s hip-hop phenom Sir Mix-a-Lot was the world willing to describe a lady's backside the same way they would a burger. But the artist's number one hit, "Baby Got Back," was all over the news this week, thanks to a hilarious YouTube movie mashup. The video was so meticulously and thoroughly put together that you'll even see cameos from Bugs Bunny, Chucky (like, as in the Bride of Chucky), and the obscure Chinese-American actor from Big Trouble in Little China.
