Barbie has a Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover, which certainly is the reductio ad absurdum of something. Instead of that nonsense, read what the 1981 Lego ad girl has to say now that she's all grown up (also ban gendered toys forever). Tim Armstrong interviewed a 10 year old girl on stage at AOL's Makers conference and managed not to fire her or blame her for his company's poor performance. No, no one can have it all, stop writing this headline. Boys, Ranked.
Today in Hell and Butts: Someone transcribed the butt music from Hieronymus Bosch's hell, which is apparently the "Dancing Alone to Pony" of 16th century Dutch paintings. Olympic skiers have also "got booties. I’ve spent 28 years squatting in that squat position, and I’m really proud of it." And I don't know if Heaven has any new angels, but Hell has some sweet-ass new 'Vettes today.

Episode IV: A New Hope: At least Mexico is banning some stupid names. Flickr turned ten, and yeah Yahoo killed it and it will never return, but at least we'll always have Mat Honan's amazing story about how that happened (via deep tabs/2012). At least snowboarding is still awesome. At least we can finally figure out what bird that is. At least we found all the puppies.
You know what? Skip everything else and just go read Dirtbag Hamlet. The rest of your day will be awesome.

Today's Song: I listened to Bacon Pancakes the entire time I was writing this. That's probably why tabs is so short today.
