Eagles QB Nick Foles to GMs turned off by his humility: ‘I don’t want to play for you’

Nick Foles bested Tom Brady and the New England Patriots to disrupt a dynasty, win Super Bowl MVP and bring the Philadelphia Eagles their first Lombardi Trophy. Five months later, Nick Foles is also happy as can be as a backup. And if you're an NFL team scouting him for 2019 free agency and happen to have a problem with that attitude, there's a good chance Nick Foles is also happy turning down your money.

Twitter Turned An Old Photo Of Meryl Streep Into An Incredible Meme

Meryl Streep is an Oscar-winning actress and, according to Twitter, a great singer.

It all started with a photo taken in 2015. The “Florence Foster Jenkins” star was snapped cheering on the late Debbie Reynolds as she received a lifetime-achievement award at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The photo has inexplicably gone through a renaissance in the past few days and has become a Twitter meme. A meme that involves Streep yelling a song lyric.

Someone even made a @MerylMemes account, solely dedicated to these musically-themed jokes:

Thank goodness for Twitter and Meryl Streep.

Get Turned On The Old Venetian Way With These Sexy Flap Books

Move along, nothing to see here ― right? Just an elegant lady enjoying a leisurely gondola ride with her elderly female chaperone, a depiction of a proper young woman going about daily life in 16th-century Venice.

But wait, let’s look again:

Oh my! A lifted flap reveals a far more scandalous scene; instead of a chaperone, the lady is accompanied by a dashing gentleman who appears to be feeling her up. 

This erotic interactive flap book, currently on view at the New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman building, was illustrated by Donato Bertelli in the late 16th century. The book is part of “Venice in Love,” an exhibition featuring the NYPL’s collections of erotic and romantic artifacts from the Republic of Venice, which existed as an independent state from the 13th to 18th centuries.

In her description of the exhibition, curator Madeleine Viljoen notes that Venice, a relatively liberated secular state, was “famed for its high-end courtesans and low-end prostitutes,” as well as the beauty and elaborate grooming of its women. Throughout its lifetime, the state became “a prime destination for lovers and pleasure seekers,” along with art-lovers ― and the exhibition puts on display the union between Venice’s artistic proclivities and its erotic ones.

As for Bertelli’s peekaboo love scene, why hide the romantic embrace behind another drawing? Viljoen, also the NYPL prints curator, told The Huffington Post in an email that the purpose of the interactive flap book was clearly sexual. “The Venetian flap books,” she said, “were designed with the titillation of the viewer in mind.”

Another flap book leans even more explicitly softcore, allowing readers to enact a pre-photographic version of an upskirt shot:

Viljoen’s description of the exhibition calls attention to the young woman’s “underwear and platform shoes, known as chopines” ― a sexy getup for the time.

These two flap books aren’t just eye-grabbing; they’re highly unusual. “There has been much interest in recent years in so-called interactive prints,” Viljoen told HuffPost. However, “[t]hese were usually didactic and included items like paper astrolabes or anatomical studies … except for the books shown in the Library’s collection, I cannot think of any other examples of specifically erotic flap books.”

The sensuous images found in the NYPL’s Venetian prints don’t look much like modern day erotica ― in olden days, after all, a glimpse of stocking was looked upon as something shocking ― but boast the same twinkle of subversive playfulness that still titillates frisson-seekers today. “The act of lifting the curtain from the young lovers or of raising the courtesan’s skirt seems quintessentially voyeuristic,” Viljoen told HuffPost.

When it comes to the erotic, some things never change.

A Dry Cleaner Lost This Bride’s 147-Year-Old-Wedding Dress. So She Turned To Facebook For Help.

Tess Newall’s wedding gown had extra sentimental value. Her dress is a delicate family heirloom her great-great-grandmother handmade more than a century earlier, in 1870. 

Newall wore it to her June 2016 wedding in Scotland and took it to the dry cleaners in the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, after the big day, and her joy suddenly turned to despair. 

The business went into liquidation sometime after she dropped off her dress and before she was able to pick it up.

“After the wedding, we took the dress to the cleaners and were told it would take 10 weeks to dry clean,” Newall told the British news website Metro. “But then we didn’t hear from them for ages, so we went to have a look ourselves – and it was in liquidation.” The bride told The Huffington Post that she dropped off the dress in September, and was told to pick up her gown in December. In October, the shop liquidated and sold off the items of clothing in their care.

So she turned to Facebook, and posted a public message asking for anyone and everyone’s help. 

“It seems that the dress was taken to be sold so it could be winging its way anywhere,” Newall wrote in a post that has been shared more than 300,000 times. “Please share this far and wide in case anyone stumbles across it! I realise there are far greater issues in the world but it means the world to us. More family memories need to be woven into its threads.”

The post struck a chord. Local news outlets picked up Newall’s story and posted her plea. A wedding planning website said it would organize a search of 1,000 bridal gown shops across the United Kingdom.

Due to Newall’s viral Facebook post, the dress was recovered within days after a landlord for the space saw the story. The gown was found left behind in the very shop the dry cleaners vacated, crumpled up on the floor.

The dress hadn’t even been cleaned, according to Newall’s post below.

Newall said her dress finally returned home on Monday. “We are just so thankful to safely have it back and so grateful to everyone as well,” she added. 

Now it’s nothing but all smiles. Cue this level of happiness again:

Someone Literally Turned 2016 Into A Horror Movie

Everyone’s been saying it: 2016 was one traumatic year.

It’s the year we lost David Bowie, Harper Lee, Prince, and Princess Leia and her mother. It’s the year the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. It’s the year Donald Trump was voted president of the United States. It’s the year Harambe was shot.

These past 12 months have played out like a surreal horror film ― so Friend Dog Studios turned the year into one, in the form of a fake movie trailer.

The comedy studio premiered the trailer Wednesday for “2016: The Movie,” and it hits way too close to home.

The trailer’s story touches all the shitty things that happened this year, including notable deaths, exploding phones and Trump’s “locker room talk” defense.

If there’s anything this movie trailer does, it confirms that we’re not just going crazy: This year felt bad universally.

And whatever you do, don’t trust the boyfriend in the video above when he says, “It’s OK. It’s not like it could get any worse.”

Why Olivia Munn Turned Down Deadpool

Olivia Munn turned down the opportunity to play the role of Vanessa in Deadpool because she didn’t want to play a “girlfriend” role.

Speaking to American Way Magazine, the actress said she refused the role because of a lack of action opportunities – something her new role as Psylocke in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse offered.

“I thought Psylocke was always one of the most lethal characters,” Munn explained, “and I said, ‘Yes

, as long as you’re not using her to be the eye candy. She has really powerful abilities.’ And they said, ‘Yes, that’s an important part.’”

Vanessa was eventually played by Firefly regular, Morena Baccarin.

So That Happened: Obama’s Cuba Plan Turned Some Folks Into Wind-Up-Toys Of Outrage

So, that happened: This week, President Barack Obama announced that the United States would make an effort to normalize relations with Cuba, ending a decades-long policy of distance that had been surprisingly effective in doing nothing in particular. We’ll talk about the new plan, and the people who are hopping mad about it.

Listen to this week’s “So That Happened” below:

* * *

Some highlights from this week:

“Those two, when they got the news, I don’t know. It was like they became weird wind-up-toys of outrage.” — Jason Linkins

Meanwhile, a Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy has been canceled, because North Korea apparently now dictates what movies we watch in our spare time? How did something so simple get so out of hand?

“Films that relate to things in North Korea will not be made now and that is just outrageous. Something has got to give.” — Arthur Delaney

And finally, we’re taking a look back at 2014 — a great year for garbage monsters. What are our least-favorite things about the past year? Well, this is going to take a while.

“2014 has been f*cking terrible and at least in the world of public affairs, there have been almost no redeeming aspects to this terrible year.” — Zach Carter

* * *

We’re very happy to let you know that “So, That Happened” is now available on iTunes. We’ve been working to create an eclectic and informative panel show that’s constantly evolving and as in touch with the top stories of the week as it is with important stories that go underreported.

This Artist Turned A Major Street In Bristol Into A Huge Water Slide

That’s no street — that’s a slip ‘n’ slide!

So it was Sunday, when some 360 people in Bristol, England, went careening down Park Street on a 300-foot homemade water slide.

The slide, a crowd-funded project by artist Luke Jerram, was built from little more than plastic sheets, hay bales, water and a dash of liquid soap.

If you look at photographs in the 1900s you see these beautiful empty streets with all the kids playing out.” Jerram said to the BBC, explaining part of his inspiration for the slide. “It’s an extraordinary thing and all that has been taken away.”

According to NPR,nearly 100,000 people applied to take a run down the slide — unfortunately, only 360 riders ultimately got to take the plunge.

Sister Megan Rice: The Outlaw Nun Turned Folk Hero

The world watched with intrigue this week as no-nukes nun Megan Rice, 84, was sent to the slammer—sentenced to 35 months in prison for breaking into a Tennessee nuclear-defense facility, spray painting it with peace signs and splashing it with human blood. When guards confronted Rice (along with her two male accomplices) back in 2012, she began singing and then offered him food. And on Tuesday, while being sentenced in federal court in Knoxville, she asked the judge for even more time behind bars. “Please have no leniency with me,” she said. “To remain in prison for the rest of my life would be the greatest gift you could give me.”
