Oh, to have been a fly on the wall at the Detroit City Council meeting yesterday. DJs, strippers, and club owners descended on the council, begging to be left alone.

Do You Suffer From Facebook Relationship Status Anxiety?

The other day I was reading the personal blog of an old acquaintance of mine who’s currently going through a rather painful breakup. She’s in her mid-30s, has been married at least once before and has children from two different men, so clearly this is a road she’s at least a little familiar with, which…

Why, Now? The United States Waited 31 Years to Arrest Polanksi

Why was Roman Polanski arrested in the extraditable country of Switzerland this week? The real question is why wasn’t Polanski, who owns a home there, arrested on any of his previous visits? A little digging supports the obvious, repeating theme: It was all…

Mind Of Man: Real Men Buy Flowers

Men should buy women flowers. They are colorful. They smell nice. And without them, flora would never get laid. To many, purchasing flowers is cliché or corny or tacky.

Are You Sporting A “Recession” Haircut?

We’ve jokingly talked before about why women cut their hair, but here’s a historical example we didn’t really consider: war and its economic impact. The U.K.’s Telegraph recently reprinted a 1939 article dealing with trends in women’s hairstyles.

When Naming A Company, Make Sure The Initials Aren’t TIT

The Wisconsin Tourism Federation has recently made a very big decision. Rather than stick with the acronym “WTF” and continue to be made fun of by sites like Boing Boing and Language Log, they’ve done a little switcheroo. They are now the Tourism Federation of Wisconsin, or “TFW.” Here are some other organizations with laughable…

A Jimmy Kimmel And Sarah Silverman Sex Tape? Say It Ain’t So.

Screech Is No Longer Saved By The Bell

Well, this is really sad, you guys. Dustin Diamond, the twerp who played dorky Screech on “Saved By The Bell,” appeared on Fox News yesterday to promote his book, Behind The Bell, a tell-all about the dirt behind the scenes of the ’90s teen sitcom. I don’t know whether to feel more disturbed by hi…

Product Test Drive: Rear Gear Sports Cushion

I was given a Rear Gear Sports Cushion, a rollable butt pad, while vacationing in Las Vegas this past weekend. I was in total relax mode while lounging next to the hot tub, so I wasn’t really thinking about work or testing any products. But the moment I sat my caboose on the Rear Gear…
