At the sign of the Kat

Katherine Timpf’s name was dropped into last week’s QOTW, and at some time between then and now I decided to go look for a few more pictures, because there are always pictures of a News Babe. In her 28 years she’s evidently annoyed lots of people. From the fall of 2015:

Last month, Fox News contributor Katherine Timpf jokingly insulted fans who were excited for the newest trailer during a guest stint on the late-night political comedy show Red Eye w/ Tom Shillue. Now, Timpf has revealed she’s receiving death threats for her comments.

“I have never had any interest in watching space nerds poke each other with their little space nerd sticks, and I’m not going to start now,” Timpf shared on the original broadcast. “You people are crazy. You Star Wars people are crazy. Yesterday I tweeted something, and all I said was that I wasn’t familiar with Star Wars because I’ve been too busy liking cool things and being attractive — people threatened my life. You’re not really branding yourself in a way that makes me want to join your life-threatening club.”

Jaws was never my scene and I don’t like Star Wars.” — Freddie Mercury, in “Bicycle Race” (1978).

Timpf has a BA in English from Hillsdale College — magna cum laude, yet — and not quite comically large spectacles:

Timpf also seems fond of the Inverse Selfie, which is easiest explained by showing you one or two:

The vast majority of pictures of this sort are taken on the beach or at poolside, so this is Timpf being a noncomformist again.

For the heck of it, here’s a demo reel, generally from Red Eye:

Which explains her on-again-off-again career in stand-up, even while sitting down.

    It always surprises me a little bit when someone says they don’t like Star Wars or Star Trek. I know it shouldn’t because I know there are a lot of those people out there but it does. It always feels a little bit like encountering a strange species of some kind.

    It’s stupid to threaten someone for not liking what you like though. I mean, why would you even want to threaten a member of a clearly inferior but harmless species?

    Agreed! Leave the poor benighted fools to their own futile existence. Same for the silly fools who think that James T. Kirk compares in any way with Jean-Luc Picard. It’s not even worth debating with someone so goofy.
