Weekend Hangover: 15+ Stories You May Have Missed – Official Kevin Smith Weed and Cinderella Porn



It’s Hangover time again! Start your week right with some of the best reader-submitted stories from the weekend, compiled with the help of Kyle LeClair. We’ll start with the official medical marijuana tie-in to Kevin Smith’s newest movie Tusk, pictured above.

This week’s tipsters include: franciebrady27, Anyone00, Gallen_Dugall, Edwin Santos, SlyDante777, troi, andre_morelo, FakeAssName, skrag2112

1. Spectre of the Corri-gan.


Jim Corrigan has been cast on Constantine – it’s Emmett Scanlan, who previously acted opposite the Guardians of the Galaxy (as the head riot guard) and Thor (in an Icelandic animated film).

Will he pale in comparison to his altar-ego and become the Spectre? Perhaps, if ratings permit.

2. Polish Dogging.

Was Jack the Ripper an eastern European hairdresser? The Daily Mail says so. And there’s no reason not to trust them, right?

3. Secrets, ‘Stache.

Stan Lee does more for his wife with a mustache than the rest of us will do for geekdom in our entire lives.

4. Ajar ‘Puff & Stuff.

If Michael Bay and Jonathan Liebesman gave the Powerpuff Girls a movie, this is probably about what it’d be like.

5. Girly Cues.

SNL‘s Hans and Franz return to pimp insurance. Anything that keeps them from running for office is a plus.

6. Illegally Binding.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth gets some very deranged naked people to pimp its cartoony game.

7. I Dig It, but We Should’ve Dug It Years Ago.

Chubby Checker sings about Dig Dug, in a song that was used in Atari commercials – as covered by another band, for some reason.

8. Sexism in Gaming? There’s No Such…Uhhhhh, HEY! Look over There!

Sony tries to sell the Japanese on virtual reality via a 3D game that literally is not much more than “the male gaze.” People are preemptively getting both outraged and anti-outrage-outraged as we speak.

9. Squirreling Away.

I too get foamy when people tell me to buy MP3s instead of CDs.

10. Bibbidi Bobbidi Booty!

The most shocking thing about Axel Braun’s Cinderella porn parody trailer is the revelation at the end that Cinderella, theoretically a public-domain folk tale, is apparently copyrighted by Disney. That, or Axel’s just being extra-careful.

11. What Do You Call Zombie Soccer in France? “Le Zombie Soccer.”

Goooooooooooooooooooal of the dead! Zombies, slobbering hordes of hooligans – not a bad analogy, actually.

12. What a Country! Heeh heeh heeh!

Russian TV mistakes fan art for Team Fortress 2 for actual American propaganda which suggests soldiers eat babies.

13. Storming the Bastich.

Given how easily Star Wars Rebels‘ Zeb takes out Stormtroopers, you have to wonder why the whole planet of whatever-his-race-is didn’t win the Rebellion already.

14. These Are the 48 Hours.


AKB48 and Super Smash Bros. are co-promoting.

15. Make Trax.

Animated Rifftrax intro, featuring Gargamel, Vanilla Ice and Vampira among others.
