Awesome Headline: "Girls" Actor Leaves the Show After Realizing It Is Terrible

He didn't like the "direction" of it and butted heads with Lena Dunham.

In other showbiz news, there's chatter that old bitter cranky Dave Letterman will be put to pasture next year and replaced by Jon Stewart, who is already under contract with CBS' owning entity, Viacom.

I like this bubbly Youth Over Alles part of the article:

Age is also an issue. Stewart is 50 years old, which would make him a decade older than Fallon and Kimmel. But he’s also 15 years younger than Letterman and a dozen years younger than Leno. And at 50, he’s more than ready for his shining moment on the big network. He would bring the considerable “The Daily Show” audience with him, plus the allegiance of many celebrities who adore him. Imagine a three way network contest in September 2014 of Stewart-Fallon-Kimmel. Audiences will get no sleep!

We'll sleep just fine, but thank you for your concern.

Oh, and unrelated: You know how we always say, "Gee, wish those Naked Feminist Protesters would protest one day against hardcore Islam"?

Well... they have. A Tunisian activist posted pictures of her naked body with the words "My body is owned by myself and is not anyone else's honor," and was arrested. (I think that part about "honor" refers to the idea in Islam that women must be covered up to protect the honor of Islam and Islamic men. But I don't know.)

So the Feminist group "Femen" is protesting that, nakedly, and are protesting Islam generally. They burned a Salfist flag, for example. Corrected: I said they were Ukranian, because one picture was captioned as being from Ukraine; in fact they are Europe-wide, and demonstrated in front of the Tunisian embassy in many European capitals.

Content Warning for nudity, profanity, and, worst of all, the hate crime of anti-Islamist blasphemy.

Second look at Femen & topless protests?
