I was at the hairdresser the other day and had the misfortune of perusing their selection of terrible magazines to pass the time. One particular copy of Us Weekly featured this delightful piece [Kim: It's the same issue as that godawful booty poll]. Did you know that men and women can't be friends? I mean, it's just so obvious. The minute you touch one another, even casually, a bed suddenly appears out of nowhere and you can't help but give into your animal instincts...
Black Widow better keep her distance from the rest of the Avengers in public, or we can expect to see a lot more of this type of tripe in the future. After all, there are four other guys on the team that she hasn't been seen casually touching yet!
But hey - at least homegirl is keeping up the Vitamin C intake. It can't be easy, being that "touchy-feely" after saving the planet...

Black Widow and Hawkeye: Just Friends, or Hot and Heavy?
Spotted together twice in a week! Coincidence, or something more?
By Sandy Jones
First there was the sighting of all the Avengers in Central Park, followed by a strange blue light and a blinding flash, where witnesses claim the archer and the ninja seemed very touchy feely. Then, just two days ago, I had the pleasure to spot them myself just outside a local Brooklyn coffee shop!
She was carrying what appeared to be orange juice, and he was sipping at a frappuccino. Decaf, we’re assuming, considering his exceptionally steady hands.
While apparently attempting to go incognito in a baseball cap and sunglasses, it was hard not to miss that flaming red hair. Bundled up in jackets to fight the cold, I think it’s safe to assume these two heroes aren’t as ‘super’ as some of their team members.
In fact, reports from those inside the small coffee shop claim that customers and staff alike didn’t even realize who they were in the company of! The owner of the store - and the barista who made Hawkeye’s frappe - informed me that she thought they were just like any other customer until another patron commented on the freakish lookalike.
The same barista also mentioned a very obvious familiarity between the two, with Hawkeye placing his hand on her back as they left the store. Just friends? Romance? Long standing colleagues? We don’t know yet, but from what we’ve seen, there’s certainly something between the two that’s more than just being one off, world saving teammates!
