Cat Gets Awesome Bionic Paws

Take a look at Oscar’s new paws! This poor kitty lost his feet after being run over by a combine harvester, but got a second chance to jump around with the help of a British neurosurgeon. The doc was able to deck out Oscar with some bionic back legs, not only giving him a fashionable…

Wonder Woman Gets A Makeover

Most 69-year-old women are chasing the grandkids, but Wonder Woman is still chasing bad guys — and she’s got a new outfit for the first time ever! Wonder Woman will debut her makeover today, in Issue No. 600 of her monthly comic book. Gone is the golden eagle-encrusted bodice, star-spangled boy shorts and, shocker, 80…

9 Tips For Befriending A Brit

Between the BP oil spill and the U.S. and U.K. facing off during the World Cup, the “special relationship” across the pond has gotten seriously strained in the past few weeks. This is unfortunate considering that—as I learned from spending a decade in London—creating any relationship with a Brit is not an easy task. A…

At Age 45 Your Sex Life Is Over And Most Women Fake It

Stupendous news! A new study shows that couples over 45 have an ever-decreasing sex life but not for the reasons you’d think. One out of three people surveyed cut sex short because they don’t have the energy to cross the finish line. Around 37 percent don’t do it at all because sexytime just takes too…

“Jersey Shore” Season Two Trailer: Miami, Catfights Galore And Vinny Gets Some!

Why do I keep watching this show about these terrible people? The “Jersey Shore” gang is back and this time, it’s in Miami! Ronnie is still a juiced up d-bag, JWoww still has the temper of an enraged rhino, and it looks like Vinny finally gets laid by Snooki and Angelina. It all look…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Signed Up For A Cheating Site”

I have been with my boyfriend for four years and although I love him with my whole heart, I have a problem: he signs up for online dating sites. I recently found out he signed up for a guest membership to a popular cheating website. When I confronted him he said he wasn’t doing anything…

Where Does The Word “Sneakers” Come From?

I came across a little tidbit in the “Hot Contents” section of Elle’s July issue that said advertising man Henry Nelson McKinney popularized the term “sneakers” while working on a 1917 Keds campaign. The athletic shoes, as Keds were known before this clever moment, had a rubber sole that allowed the wearer to sneak behind…

Geri Halliwell Fondles Her Spice Rack

Before picking up her daughter Bluebell from school, Geri Halliwell — that’s Ginger Spice, for those of you not aware of pop culture in the ’90s — checked to make sure her boob was where it belonged. [London, 6/30/10]…

6 Steps For Making A Man Fall Madly In Love

So, I was watching “The Bachelorette” on Monday night (I know I said I was boycotting it because it’s obviously a shamfest, but I’m already sucked in this season), and the true genius of the show dawned on me. Some brilliant exec at ABC came up with the perfect formula to make guys fall i…

The Men Of Dolce & Gabbana Are Easy On The Eyes

Jak & Jil photographer blogger Tommy Ton was in Milan covering the menswear shows for Style.com and captured all the male model hottttieeesss who walked in the Dolce & Gabbana runway show on the streets as they were leaving the venue. I say, DAYUM. Today’s lesson: It is hard to type and wipe the drool…

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Ali’s Nude Photo Scandal? The Travoltas’ Miscarriage Scare?

Even on a relatively slow news week, the tabloids always manage to come up with something and I guess I admire their perseverance. There will always be a celebrity somewhere, trying to lose weight, trying to overcome obstacles, and accidentally flashing some cellulite. The more I read the tabloids, the more I’m glad to not…

Mind Of Man: I Want To Grow A Sweet Mustache

I always wanted to grow a mustache. Fearsome pimp whiskers. To me, the mustache is to masculinity what long, flowing tresses are to femininity. Aphrodite’s long hair was the source of her sexual authority, which she’d comb while sitting inside her pet oyster “Chester.” Aries, God of the pointy phallus and the shield, wore a…

Babies And Demons? Yeah, “Paranormal Activity 2″ Goes There

Both Amelia and Meghan McCain loved the demonic horror flick “Paranormal Activity,” but I was like, “Bitches, please! Go change your diapers.” Unfortunately, “Paranormal Activity 2″ doesn’t look any scarier — but it plays the baby-in-distress card. That’s low, Hollywood. That’s low.

Hump Day Cuteness: The Peruvian Guinea Pig Festival!

There’s a Peruvian guinea pig festival? Why didn’t anyone tell me?! Although I guess your level of excitement about this depends on whether you think guinea pigs are fuzzy cuties or fat rats. [BuzzFeed]…

10 Wedding Gifts For Our Fave Anti-Gay, Sex Tape-Starring, Dethroned Beauty Queen, Carrie Prejean

Gee, we haven’t heard from Carrie Prejean in a while. Wonder what she’s up to? Turns out the beauty queen who’s against same-sex marriage is getting “opposite married” on Friday to NFL quarterback Kyle Boller. Mazel tov! It seems The Frisky’s invitation (and Perez Hilton’s, and Larry King’s) got lost in the mail.

Lady Fish Love The Mustache

Apparently, we aren’t the only species that has a bizarre fascination with the furry friend of the upper lip. It seems that female Mexican molly fish prefer a mate with a mustache. Only some male members of the swimmers sport the whiskers, and a recent study done by German biologist Ingo Schlupp shows that these…

The Old Spice Guy Is Back!

The Old Spice Guy, otherwise known as Isaiah Mustafa, or, at Frisky HQ, the Guy We All Want to Bone, has returned with a new Old Spice commercial, and homeboy and his six-pack, ironic delivery, and general wackiness are as visually pleasurable to behold as ever. I like the part where he swa…

I Have Borderline Personality Disorder

It’s hard, even now, to write the words, “I have Borderline Personality Disorder.” I hesitate before making the statement for so many reasons. The condition is a big mish-mosh of types of people and problems. You have to meet five out of nine criteria listed in the DSM-IV-TR for Borderline Personality Disorder, which means there…
