On Jennifer Lawrence Responds to Esquire's Concerns About Her Drinking

@19850643@twitter I, also, take a firm stance on not reading anything funny if it wasn't written by a celebrity... if only there were more people on the internet who lived by our high standards.

On The Best (and Worst and Last) Time I Went To a Sorority Party

this was beautiful, especially for repeated use of the phrase "delicate chemise." also I feel sure that if Smell-o-Vision had taken off, John Hughes would have dutifully let us know the truth about how beefcake types smell.

On Talking to Anne Helen Petersen About Leaving Academia for BuzzFeed

@JonnyFoy She is leaving an academic job that she has been at since 2012, not going to work at Buzzfeed straight after finishing her PhD. So she wouldn't be looking for her first academic position if she wasn't going to Buzzfeed, as you're implying. Also it's pretty ridiculous to assume that things she's published on websites like the Hairpin (as awesome as they are) would represent her scholarly writing, and since you seem to have assumed that I would guess that you know far less about academia than you are pretending to.

also it is possibly the best use ever of the phrase "there has got to be a better way to do this"
