Things We Saw Today: An Iron Throne Cake

Many of you are gearing up for your Game of Thrones Season 2 finale parties tomorrow night but I doubt many of you can say you have an Iron Throne cake to dine on. Twitter user Mitchell Brown’s sister made this one for him. Let’s hope he doesn’t chip a tooth.

Things We Saw Today: Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano IRL

Ashley Eckstein, who provides the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Cartoon Network‘s Star Wars: The Clone Wars said that she’s always wanted to cosplay the character, even before she got the gig. So, she went ahead and did that for us. She’s written about her experience on CNN Geek Out! We also urge you to visit the amazing online store that she runs, Her Universe, which specializes in geek apparel for women and girls. Yup. Lots of awesome stuff going on here.


And That's Terrible

One Million Moms Asking Toys R Us To Pull Archie’s Gay Marriage Comic [UPDATED]

Remember when the group One Million Moms decided to go up against JC Penny and Ellen DeGeneres and failed miserably? Well this time they’re going after Toys R Us and Archie Comics. Shall we start placing bets? 


We Can Cause More Damage That Way

Ellen DeGeneres Smacks Down Homophobic Organization In the Friendliest, Nicest Possible Way [Video]

We’re willing to bet that when Ellen DeGeneres found out that a conservative group of pearl-clutching biddies known as One Million Moms (which is probably not made up of one million people, let alone moms) was asking J.C. Penney to fire the comedian as their new spokesperson because she’s a lesbian (zounds!), she was less than chipper. However, if there is something that DeGeneres is better at than most people, it’s taking the high road. Not only did she steer clear of insulting the group (a group that protests, among lesbians, ice cream), but she found the silver lining and put the spotlight on the positive results of this minor debacle. Like the numerous comments supporting her, and J.C. Penney standing by their new spokesperson, mentioning that DeGeneres is “one of the most fun and vibrant people in entertainment today, with great warmth and a down-to-earth attitude.”

That’s probably more than you could say for the One Million Moms. Also worth mentioning: J.C. Penney is trying to become cool — and it might be working.
