Because Apparently, We All Look Alike [Hulu Fail]

Dear Hulu, Thanks for even having a Korean Dramas section. I really appreciate it. And thank you for spotlighting the Korean Dramas genre on your front page today:  But wait. Something isn’t quite right. Can it be that the first “Korean” drama you featured is The Legend of Bruce Lee? Just to make sure, I clicked on over and watched a few minutes. I was right.

The Ladies of Madison Avenue: Playboy Edition

Tauntr, the site behind the fake Ben & Jerry’s pop culture ice cream flavors you’ve been seeing all over the web recently, has created four faux vintage covers of Playboy magazine featuring characters from the AMC hit show Mad Men. Now, I know at least some of my readers will be offended by my featuring Playboy covers here, fake or not.
