You Say 'Pervnado,' I Say 'Perv Nation,' Let's Call the Whole Thing Off

With apologies to George and Ira Gershwin,

You like potato and I like potahto
You like tomato and I like tomahto
You like Pervnado and I like Perv Nation
Pervnado, Perv Nation, Pervnado, Perv Nation
Let's call the whole thing off.

Anyway, if you've been having a hard time keeping up with all the latest sexual harassment/assault allegations, New York City's tabloid newspapers helpfully gave some of the key names associated with those allegations the front-page treatment over the weekend, as seen above. (Yes, folks, witness the tabloid editor's eternal challenge: to draw eyeballs and sell papers with catchy, witty headlines even in an incredibly upsetting context. We salute you! Or something.)

Meanwhile, just to bring you fully(-ish) up to speed:

"Gal Gadot will only be 'Wonder Woman' again if Brett Ratner is out," per the New York Post's Page Six.

"Danish authorities investigating claims of sexual abuse at Lars Von Trier's studio Zentropa," per The Guardian.

"'Supergirl,' 'Arrow' Producer Suspended Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations by Warner Bros.," per Variety.

"George Takei is 'shocked and bewildered' at claims that he sexually assaulted a model in 1981," per The Verge.

"Hundreds in Hollywood march against sexual harassment," per ABC News.

"Hollywood dreading awards season in wake of scandals," per Page Six. (Seriously, let's call the whole thing off for real, OK?)

Oh, and here's today's New York Daily News cover:
