Why Does Everyone Have Such Strong Opinions On How A Baguette Moves?

Why do you even *want* your baguette to move?

On Thursday, Twitter user @SheepFilms asked a very important question: If a baguette could move, what would it look like? And, in the following days since the tweet was sent, it's become obvious that basically everyone on the internet has very strong opinions on the matter.

As you can see, all of the illustrated options laid out by @sheepfilms are pretty disconcerting. I'd be hesitant to say that a baguette would move in any of these ways, and if it actually ended up doing so, I'd be very concerned. Especially the second choice... like, what is happening there?

Most people are incredibly steadfast in their belief that, since baguettes should be hard on the outside, the only viable option would be the third one. If a baguette was soft enough to even perform the other movements, it would be a pretty gross baguette.

The queen of the internet herself, Chrissy Teigen, even offered up her own opinion: Choice three, she said, is "the most delicious baguette." She followed that up with some other options: "If we are giving this bread moving capabilities at all, why wouldn't it just propel forward, flat like a locomotive? Or roll on its side maybe." Valid questions!

The outrage was so significant that the creator ended up adding a few more "rigid" options. While they are a little better and easier to look at (the other ones low-key creep me out), they're still not acceptable.

I'm still not completely sold on this concept, though. Why would you want your baguette to be on the move anyway? That makes it harder to eat. Don't you people want a calm, stationary, easy-to-digest loaf of bread? Or, am I just too conservative with my expectations of baguettes?

Maybe, just maybe, people have such strong opinions on this because they're imagining a future in which bread can actually bring itself to us instead of us having to get it delivered. Or, god forbid, having to go to the store ourselves. And, if that is in fact the future, we don't want a soggy, flexible baguette slithering toward us.

While the song should serve as a reminder to your exes

Just a day after dropping new single "Nunya," featuring Dom Kennedy, Kehlani has released the winter-wonderland visuals to go along with. The singer, NYLON November cover star, and mother-to-be rocks some of the best winter 'fits I've seen in a while, including a glorious puffer jacket that could double as a down comforter that I absolutely need in my life right now.

Kehlani is clearly living her best life up in some snow-filled forest hideaway, vibing on the beach at sunset and sipping on something bubbly as she coolly reminds nosy exes that who she's with is "nunya business." There's not much of a story line (unlike her recent "Nights Like This" video); the main takeaway is that Kehlani is busy dancing through a forest, missing no one and chilling amongst people who are clearly not the subjects of the song.

Kehlani is only two short months away from bringing baby Adeya into the world, who she thanked for helping her get through the video process. "Shot that 7 months pregnant in da snow..." Kehlani wrote on Twitter, adding, "thank u baby for da motivation, mommy was FROZE."

Even from the womb, Adeya has been hustling hard alongside her momma. Twitter user @ODtheMC pointed out that this is already her second music video appearance, and she's not even been born.

Get some mulled wine ready and escape into Kehlani's winter getaway, below. Stay tuned for her forthcoming mixtape, While We Wait, out on February 22.

As in Black Panther Political Party leader

It's been a running joke that the Black parents/grandparents of millennials were really confused about all of the Black Panther hoopla ahead of its 2018 release. Many of them were anticipating a movie about members of the Black Panther Political Party and didn't know who the hell T'Challa was. Well, those people are about to have their moment, and we're about to have another one.

Variety is reporting that Fred Hampton, the Black Panther leader at the center of the upcoming biopic Jesus Was My Homeboy, could be played by none other than Daniel Kaluuya. Apparently, he is in negotiations for the role. And he's not the only Black Panther alum in the mix. The Warner Bros. project is being produced by Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler. The same article reports that the forever swoon-worthy Lakeith Stanfield—who appeared with Kaluuya in Jordan Peele's Get Out—is also in negotiations, to play William O'Neal, an FBI informant who infiltrated the Black Panther Party.

Coogler and Charles King are putting together a dream cast to tell a difficult story. Hampton was killed by the Chicago Police Department, while his pregnant girlfriend lay next to him, thanks in part to information they received from O'Neal. Whenever it's out, I strongly recommend having Black Panther queued up as a palate cleanser.
