Jennifer Lawrence, Indiana Jones: The Mary Sue’s Favorite Comments Of The Week
Plus a goodbye. Sorry, friends.
Stephen Spielberg has just cast Jennifer Lawrence in his first female lead role since The Color Purple, but coldmilk has a much better idea for her—what if she’s our new grail-hunting, artifact-snatching explorer? Embrace it, Jennifer! IT IS YOUR DESTINY.
In under the wire, Clinton Wolf knows just how to describe the Salvation Army’s recent dress-themed abuse PSA: “Best summed up with, ‘Salvation Army lectures on color, still has problems acknowledging rainbows.'” BOOSH. Bet that hurt right in the discriminatory LGBT policy, huh SA?
Yes, we’re all making too big a deal out of Jared Leto’s Suicide Squad haircut, but as Jon E. Christianson notes, “I do mourn the fact that this means Joker won’t have a messy bun updo.” Aw, man. Now I am, too.
I wanted to screencap part of this amazing pee-centric pun thread for you, but unfortunately it was overflowing with good ones.

I’ve only been a part of this particular site for nine months so I didn’t want to make too much of a fuss about it with a separate goodbye post. Still, I loved working with all of my amazing coworkers, writing about the kinds of stories I’d want to read, and getting to have great conversations with you, the lovely people of the TMS comment section.
If you’re jonesing for more Victoria, you can find me over at MTV News starting on Monday, and probably back here from time to time to gush about Sailor Moon whenever I can. Until then, I leave you in the capable hands of Jill, Dan, Sam, Carolyn, Alanna, and all of our fabulous contributors!
