In Case You Haven’t Heard Yet, Martin Freeman Made a Rape Joke

Martin Freeman has a history of saying some pretty offensive stuff. The latest in the long line: Asked by an interviewer as part of a The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug press junket whether he’d prefer to date an elf, a hobbit, or a dwarf, he said elf. OK, OK. I’d go with hobbit, but seven meals a day isn’t for everyone. Different stokes for different folks.

And then came the rape joke.

Facebook Introduces “Social Butterfly Blue” Nail Polish. Thank You?

It’s not a bad color, but the fact that Facebook has labelled this “Social Butterfly Blue” and sells it in their Menlo Park, California campus store (there’s a Facebook campus store?) kind of ruins it for me. But hey. Paint your nails (official) Facebook blue. Vow to speak only Pig Latin for the rest of your days. Take up naked golf. I can’t count the number of times I’ve eaten cold cuts and cheddar cheese for dinner. I can’t judge.

FYI: A Top Gun Sequel Is Still Happening, According To Jerry Bruckheimer

While Jerry Bruckheimer is busy trying to churn out another Pirates of the Caribbean, he has something far more dangerous on his agenda we should be concerning ourselves with – a Top Gun sequel. Gutsiest move I ever saw, Mav.

No, Thank You. I Do Not Want A Taxidermy Rancor Head On My Wall.

So this is obviously photoshopped but the idea remains. Would you hang a rancor head on your wall if they existed outside the Star Wars universe? What about a Wampa, Tauntau, or Bantha? I do, however, own a Tauntaun sleeping bag. Which is perfectly acceptable and not gross.

Real-Life Deadpool Just Trying to Be Nice, Is Nothing Like Comic Deadpool

We at TMS like to keep tabs on the international real-life superhero movement, so nothing saddens us more than when a real-life superhero is just not needed. Actually, that might be a good thing, if that means there is a lack of crime to stop. But that still leaves someone with unrealized dreams of bringing justice to their community. Like Deadpool. Or, at least a guy who decide to use the name “Deadpool” instead of coming up with his own name.

Eating Diapers to Save the Planet

Sometimes, I think environmentalists get a bad rap for trying to tell us to change our less-than-environmentally-friendly habits. They’re only trying to keep the planet clean and not turn it into the garbage dump we had to evacuate in Wall-E. But now I understand why they get that bad rap: bad ideas. It has been discovered that one thing capable of breaking down the cellulose used to make disposable diapers (which takes forever to biodegrade) is a kind of mushroom. And one scientist is proposing that we grow those mushrooms in dirty diapers and eat them.

MTV’s Teen Wolf Series: Nothing Like The Movie [Video]

MTV has been developing a series based on the movie Teen Wolf, which was a comedy that starred King of the ’80s Michael J. Fox as a totally ’80s teenager who turns into a werewolf upon reaching puberty (in the ’80s), and everyone thinks he’s totally rad. But the MTV series wanted to have “a greater emphasis on romance, horror and werewolf mythology,” so has none of those things in it, except for a teenager who turns into a werewolf. So, you’d think that MTV would just call it Moody Werewolf Teenager instead, because that’s what this seems to be about. I have a few issues with this.
