I’m not really sure I need to add anything to this post, since it already has the best title in the history of the Gallery, but since Acadia stole that joke last week, I guess I’ll go with, “Holy hell, have you ever seen how a bat’s tongue works?”
“High-speed video footage has revealed that an increased flow of blood to the tip of the bat’s tongue causes scores of tiny hair-like projections to become swollen and erect, allowing the bat to maximise its nectar-gathering potential with each lap.”
I know we’re a little obsessed with bats and tongues around here, but you have to admit, that’s pretty cool. You can find the rest of the article here, with a super-detailed bat drinking/tongue erection diagram. If that’s the kind of thing you want to see. Pervert.
Oh, and “during lapping, the length of the [bat's] tongue tip was also increased by more than 50%.” That’s 50% more real estate for mocking you, human.

Editor’s note: Eva emailed me to let me know she was busy and didn’t think she would be able to finish the post. I looked at it and realized that the title was good enough to stand on its own so it didn’t really need anything else in it. –Acadia
Eva’s note: Sigh. NEVER MIND.
Since Acadia left all my random notes and links in, I’ll go ahead and update the post to clarify that he is officially internet famous now that he did a guest podcast on The Psycho Sideshow, which you should totally go listen to. CLEARLY he’s more internet famous than Zoe Saldana, who, based on the podcast, Acadia has never heard of. So to help Acadia out (and to save Zoe from certain internet obscurity), here’s a whole Zoe Saldana gallery (or is it Zoë Saldaña? My keyboard isn’t fancy enough for the second one. Or my fingers are too lazy. Possibly both). You can find even more Zoe Saldana in the Superficial Gallery Celeb photo mine, in case you were more successful than I was at play hooky from work today and need something to do between Arrested Development and napping.
Summer blockbuster season is about to hit, which probably explains why Bryan Singer is tweeting pictures of Jennifer Lawrence kitted out as Raven Darkholme (a.k.a. Mystique) for the latest installment of his spin on the X-Men series, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Or it could be because Jennifer looks more or less naked when she goes full mutant and, as the director, Singer can tweet these without looking like a total creeper. So does re-posting his photos (oh, and that whole Jennifer Lawrence gallery I put down there at the bottom of the post) make us creepers here on the Gallery?
Of course it does Not at all! I just thought you might like to, um, judge the before and after special effects work of the X-Men costume team! Which is why I added this video of Jennifer Lawrence getting all covered in body paint from X-Men: First Class. For research.
Born May 16, 1986, Megan Fox is currently old enough to get a break on her car insurance, but still younger than VH1, all the Star Wars movies, and mandatory seat belt laws. So while you’re now reflecting on how terribly, terribly old you are, I’d like to kick off the Megan Fox birthday celebration in the grand Gallery birthday tradition of half-naked pictures. Here’s a little collection I like to call “Megan Fox, More or Less Without Clothes On.” Happy Birthday, Megan!

Remember the other day when I said it might be worth getting knocked up just to justify buying a cool batman car seat? I take it back.
Sometimes, an idea seems good at the time, then later you wonder what the heck you could have been thinking. You with me on this one, Kanye?
I’ll just take that as a yes.
