Pop goes the culture: Dinosaur sex, Lil Wayne and more

February 24, 2010|by Jordan Bartel | jordan@bthesite.com | b free daily

While you frantically found chairs to reserve your parking spot, we kept up with what was happening in the world of celebs not slammed with snow. Here's your pop culture week in review:

SEXY DINOS: Discovery's "Tyrannosaurus Sex." From the press release: "It shows dinosaur sex in all its glory. How did a ferocious T-Rex woo his lady? How did a female Titanosaur support the weight of a male who was as long as a four-story building is high?" Uh, maybe Jurassic yoga helped? Tune in 10 p.m. Sunday.

LESSONS LIL WAYNE TAUGHT US: If we're ever busted for weapons charges (it's likely), we'll get a dentist's note.

JUST A THOUGHT: Oh, John Mayer. Perhaps, just maybe, cut out the interviews for a while. That, or stop comparing your penis to racists. Your choice.

PICKLE PANIC: We know lots of people don't enjoy her, but we’re excited for Snooki coming to Mex on Feb. 25. All we're saying is that we kind-of want to be her best friend.

NO, NO, HOLLYWOOD: Universal Pictures is considering remaking "Jaws." In 3-D. And maybe Tracy Morgan will star.

YES, YES, HOLLYWOOD: We're drooling over the cast of Steven Soderbergh's film "Contagion": Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Marion Cotillard. Who's next, President Obama?

KRAFT, SARA LEE JOIN FIRST LADY'A OBESITY CAMPAIGN: Mac and cheese, strawberry cheesecake apparently do not make people fat after all.

ALMOST MAKES UP FOR 'DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL': Lady Gaga to collaborate with Britney Spears.

WORST REPEATED TV MOMENT: The snow shutting down government provides political pundits with the (already) most unfunny and overused metaphor of the year.

FURTHER PROOF MOTHER NATURE IS REALLY MAD AT US: That random earthquake near Chicago.

CHUCK NORRIS: JUSTIN BIEBER IS IN 'DANGER' SINCE HE'S FAMOUS SO YOUNG: And as is the case when Norris decrees such things, Bieber instantly disappeared.
