Okay I heard the funniest joke this morning at the grocery store. What do you call a salmon wearing a bowtie? Sofishticated! Well and you’re welcome for that and also for this mid-week Pop Culture Fix.
+ Surprise, the bisexual sex scenes on Game of Thrones were a “frenzied mess” because the show didn’t have an intimacy coordinator even though it had a budget of ten gazillion dollars per episode. Gemma Whelan, who played bi badass Yara Greyjoy, told The Guardian:
“They used to just say, ‘When we shout action, go for it!’, and it could be a sort of frenzied mess,” she said. “But between the actors there was always an instinct to check in with each other… There was a scene in a brothel with a woman and she was so exposed that we talked together about where the camera would be and what she was happy with. A director might say, ‘Bit of boob biting, then slap her bum and go!’, but I’d always talk it through with the other actor.”

maybe this will kick off a wave of ocean puns. hopefully enough to tide us over until the next pop culture fix

Seems to be going swimmingly.
Currently, anyway. Coming to AS and seeing a pun thread going always gives me such a happy peaceful feeling. Pacific, one might say. No worries atoll.
