Slangsplainer: Fish Gape

RIP duck face, you had a good ride. But you've been replaced with a younger, sexier selfie. The new pose, appropriately called "fish gape" is the more flattering cousin to the pout. The selfie trend calls for a slightly open mouth and a sliver of teeth showing. So basically me when I'm zoning out. Just scroll through your Instagram feed for examples.

Marco Rubio...

On Wednesday, Senator and GOP presidential hopeful held a Q&A at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire. All was well and boring until Rubio gave the weirdest reply to the question, "Who would you like to have a beer with who is not a politician?"

And who did he pick?  Wait for it... Malala Yousafzai?! This is crazy on so many levels, first being that Malala is a teenager. Second, because she is a practicing Muslim, which would doubly prevent her from drinking alcohol.  Come on, man. *face palm*

Muggle vs. No-maj

Author and Harry Potter bae JK Rowling has been making headlines a lot lately, what with the new live action Harry Potter prequel and the upcoming release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. But Rowling dropped a social media bomb Wednesday that resulted in a serious identity crisis for American fans. Apparently, the term "muggle" or non-magic folk, isn't a statewide term. Instead, American wizards use the term "no-maj," an abbreviation for no magic, as their slang term of choice. So get used to it, because the term will be in the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts. You have until next November to let it sink in.
