The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Prague Logomania

Normally, we're not huge fans of the logo'd gear, but Fabrice mixes them up in a way that looks funky and fresh. We love how he's paired these accessories with his pastel vintage sweater and plaid kicks. He’s in Prague’s Staromestske Nam (Old Town Square), headed toward Parizska trida, the designer shopping street, natch. What do you think…

The Blind And Deaf Don’t Want To See (Or Hear) Abigail Breslin As Helen Keller

The blind and deaf communities are not rejoicing after the announcement that Abigail Breslin has signed on to play Helen Keller in the upcoming Broadway revival of “The Miracle Worker.” Why? Simply put, she’s not blind or deaf. Advocacy groups feel strongly that the production should consider using an actress from the blind…

Eddie Murphy Will Join Tyra On “Top Model” Finale

Oh, "America's Next Top Model," how we wish you were still a good show! Too bad two more people are about to be dragged down by this show. A CW source has revealed that Eddie Murphy (as if he could get any lower after denying he fathered Scary Spice's baby) will appear alongside…

Last-Minute Halloween Task! Find A Masculine Costume For Your Effeminate Son

We were so focused on the crappy Cyrus parents who let their 9-year-old daughter out of the house dressed like a sexy witch in dominatrix boots, we forgot about scads of other crappy American parents who fret about their sons playing dress-up on Halloween. Oh, The Onion, you crack us up!

Trailer Park: “The Wedding Song,” “Gentlemen Broncos,” “Saw VI,” And “House Of The Devil”

I know you're swamped with Halloween preparations and haven't even bothered to look at this week's movies, but what are you gonna do on Sunday afternoon when you wake up hung over with a man dressed like the pope next to you and you're wearing someone else's wig? You've gotta escape somewhere, and where…

Stop It, Lindsay!

Remember those "Mr. President" leggings? The ones with the nudge-nudge, know what I mean knee pads? Remember how you thought that was bad? Now, Lindsay's ruining fashion with her leggings all over again. Sort of a White Snake meets Julia Roberts's "Pretty Woman" before the big-man rescue, but with the addition of way,…

TOMS Shoes Gets Preppy, Adds Wedges For Spring

When TOMS Shoes first came out, I thought they looked weird and wouldn't put on a pair to save my life (or even to help charitably put shoes on a child, as Toms does with every purchase). But this fall, they released a lace-up version that comes in variou…

Taking Halloween As Seriously As A Wedding

I love Halloween. I want to believe that everyone loves Halloween -- like it's a universal Tim Burton-style Christmas -- and that we all come together, unified, for the sake of weirdness and costumes, zombies, vampires, princesses, and gore. I'm torn, though, on whether I love it enough to…

My Conflicted Elliot Stabler Love Story

I've had unconventional fictional character crushes for about as long as I can remember. I remember being about 9 years old, snuggled into bed, forehead to forehead, with my friend Julie at a sleepover, while we talked about who we liked. She was all about Arnold Schwarzenegger, his "Kindergarten Cop" and "Terminator." I, however,…

Miley Cyrus Voted The Worst Influence Of 2009

The tween readers of AOL's JSYK.com (for you people above the age of 15, that's "Just So You Know") have voted Miley Cyrus the worst celebrity influence of 2009. Why? Because of that pole-dancing stunt at the Teen Choice Awards? Or because of her reckless endangerment of Fuzzy?

season savings: We found it! The Perfect Purse

Requirements for buying any woman a gift: 1. One size fits all. Too big is unfortunate and too small is a suicide attempt waiting to happen. 2. It must be a classic style. When you have the universal fashion nod of approval it's unlikely your cousin Tammy will return it. 3. It still has to…

Snoreplasty: The New Injection To End Snoring

Girls don't snore, right? (Wink.) But your guy probably does. For those with snoring problems, there's a frightening new solution—an injection treatment called "snoreplasty," which can supposedly replace surgery for those who wish to solve their severe snoring issues (or, at least, appease the women they're torturing on a nightly basis). The shot, currently…

A Hair Raising Informercial

Too lazy to brush your own hair? No worries, help -- or the worst twirled knot of your life -- is on the way, for $34.95 plus shipping and handling. I don't know what's scarier, this rotating hair brush or the fact that the crazy abusive SlapChop guy's commercials are still airing? […

10 Birth Control Practices We’re Really Glad Don’t Exist Anymore

Apparently there were many crazy things ladies used to do to prevent themselves from getting knocked up before condoms and the pill were available at the corner drug stores. Thanks to this Newsweek slide show, “The Evolution of Birth Control,” I learned a thing or two about how ladies used to ward off a…
