  1. The Mary Sue’s True Blood Finale Giveaway!

    Good times in Bon Temps.

    It's been a long road, True Blood fans, but it all ends this weekend. In tribute to a show-life well lived, to seven seasons of memories of one sort or the other, to gallons and gallons of fake blood and thousands of tooth extensions... What better way to honor that than by giving away free stuff?

  2. Study Shows Twitter May Trigger Psychosis in Predisposed Users, People of the Internet Deeply Unconcerned

    #Pffffffffffft!

    Earlier this August, the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease published a study that may have alarmed Internet users who find mental health or wellness support online: based on one troubling case study, the researchers feared Twitter may "aggravate or even induce psychotic symptoms" in predisposed users. But even if you have a personal or family history of mental illness, I wouldn't say sayonara to your followers yet.

    Curse your sub-par wand, Neville! Curse it!

    J.K. Rowling devoted so much time and research to Harry Potter that for us mere Muggles, there are always new revelations to be had--and thankfully the Internet is there to make sure no funny, mystifying or downright sad stone goes unturned.

  4. Unrealistic Female Anatomy Tumblr “Escher Girls” Currently Facing Harrassment From DMCA-Abusing Comic Artist

    Someone's about to learn about the Streisand Effect.

    If you're a comics loving feminist on the Internet, then you probably have a passing familiarity with Escher Girls and the sometimes snarky, oftentimes insightful work they do. If you're a comic book artist who doesn't understand the difference between defamation and constructive criticism (or copyright infringement and fair use, for that matter), Escher Girls is the bane of your existence. And, unfortunately, now the site is facing unfounded legal action from one particularly upset artist.

  7. Men Who Take Up Too Much Room on Subway Explained… With Cats!

    Elsewhere on the internet

    Men Taking Up Too Much Space on the Train is a blog dedicated to showcasing how easy it is for the masses to obtain pictures of men spreading themselves across two seats on a train, when they could easily take up one. It's framed, as much as any single serving Tumblog can frame an issue, as a demonstration of one of the myriad small ways in which the societal urgings -- that encourage women to be slight and small and above all not impose on others and that encourage men to assert their presence and claim their space -- manifest even in the smallest of ways. Saving Room For Cats posits that it's not the result of subtle societal messages at all: it's because all those guys are saving room for enormous photoshopped cats. And sometimes those cats are saving room for other cats.

  8. TL;DR Wikipedia Distills the Internet’s Vast Knowledge Into Short, Sarcastic Barbs

  9. Tumblr Reviews Tom Hiddleston’s The Pirate Fairy: An Affectionate Parody

    Why Tom Hiddleston followed up a string of successful indies and Hollywood blockbusters with a supporting role in the direct-to-DVD Disney movie The Pirate Fairy is a mystery for the ages. Was it the paycheck? The opportunity to sing in a Disney movie? Is he literally just that happy to do any kind of movie whatsoever? Can we expect infomercials next? What we do know is that if Hiddleston's in it, Tumblr's freaking out over it. I say that with affection, not derision. But, like many Tumblr users (no, you cannot know my username), I carry around with me at all times a strong love of self-derision and satire*. To that end, here's the Official The Mary Sue Review of The Pirate Fairy...as written by Tumblr. Or, well, "Tumblr." *In fact, Tumblr loves satire so much that it sometimes takes satirical news stories a little too much to heart.

  10. Things We Saw Today: Lots of April Fools’ Day Gags

    As they have become famous for, ThinkGeek.com rolled out a bunch of "new" products today. Unfortunately they're all April Fools' Day jokes. The one we're most upset over? The Klingon Rosetta Stone. Because seriously, I've always wanted to learn Klingon. But also, the Unicorn Drinking Horn (pictured above) should go into production immediately. Only larger. Much larger.
