Get to know the latest viral webcomic. If you haven’t seen Axe Cop yet — written by a five-year-old and drawn by his 29-year-old brother — go familiarize yourself (and please note that the artist is also making Bearmageddon). Then read this interview with the creators. [Comics Alliance]

New international red-band trailer for Kick-Ass. I haven’t been this excited for a superhero movie since… well, Watchmen. Less than a year ago. And I’m one of the few people who read the comic first and had no serious complaints with the movie. Zack Snyder won me over with a combination of ditching the squid alien, Jackie Earle Haley chewing scenery, and Malin Akerman nudity. [FilmDrunk]

Go to hell, McDonald’s. It’s bad enough we have to deal with Hollywood creating crappy remakes of old movies and TV shows. We really don’t need a remake of the Bird-Jordan HORSE commercial. And while my ire’s up, Coke and Troy Polamalu can choke on a dong, too. [With Leather]

The best description of ‘Lost’ I’ve ever read. “Back in the second season, my cousin called me to tell me his cousin was going to be on the show. I wasn’t familiar with Lost at the time, so I asked, ‘What’s the show about?’ After a long pause, he said, ‘Just f*cking watch it, okay?'” [Gamma Squad]

Oprah Winfrey to make reality show about making ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ for Oprah Winfrey Network. Oprah Winfrey Oprah Winfrey Oprah Winfrey Oprah Winfrey. [Inside TV]

The ‘Jersey Shore’ dictionary. It must be the abridged version, because I don’t see “smoosh” anywhere. [Gunaxin]

Five Television Characters You Should Technically Hate but Love to Root for. I probably would have just used the word “antihero.” [Unreality]

It’s damn near possible for an actor to succeed. An experienced TV writer sympathetically describes the long odds actors face to make it out of pilot season with a steady gig. It made me feel sorry for actors until I realized that most of them were blessed with phenomenal good looks and decided to become actors. Still, a great read from inside the industry. [Ken Levine]

Everything about ‘I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant’ is depressing. Check out this casting call for the dramatic recreation of a surprise delivery scene. I guess it’s the kind of work you take when you don’t land that pilot. [Videogum]

Thank you, Japan. Again. Remember Business Cat? Of course you do. Well, he stars in a whole series of ads for travel site Jalan. I’ve posted my favorite below, but you can see the rest at the following link. [Urlesque]
