Trojan Wants You To Write A Jingle About Extra-Large Condoms

Y’all know how I feel about Magnum condoms — unnecessary and stupid, at least most of the time. So Ludacris and I will have to agree to disagree, seeing as he is the new spokesperson for the brand, which has, up until now, never really advertised. After rappers like Luda, Eminem, Kid Rock, and Lil…

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Goldman Sachs Bosses

The Goldman Sachs bosses are in hot water. The Subcommittee on Investigations made sure they were thorough with a nearly 11-hour questioning of them this week, asking whether their firm “made significant bets against the mortgage industry while selling their clients toxic assets.” Basically, while the economy went down the crapper, these guys were raking…

Proven Fact: Justin Bieber Inspires Violence

I haven’t quite figured out what it is about that little Bieber boy that causes his fans to turn into violent psychos. Yes, he “looks” like a lesbian with his perfectly coiffed hair that falls effortlessly over one eye, but is he really riot-worthy? Last night in New Zealand, a mob of tweens greeted him…

Inevitable: The Louis Vuitton iPad Case

We’re actually surprised this hadn’t happened sooner, but here she is: the Louis Vuitton iPad case, available in the iconic LV logo leather or a smoky graphic print. Predictably, the price tag hovers around some 350 dollars. Another surprise—these models aren’t out yet, and apparently won’t hit stores until 2011. Either people are running to…

The Psychology Behind Your Irritating Co-Workers

Of course, I have the best co-workers in the world at The Frisky. But let’s just say it hasn’t always been that way at other jobs. Oh, do I have stories. As some of us may have experienced, dysfunction in the work place is rampant. How many times have you wanted to respond to a…

Do You Prefer To Talk About Your Problems With People Or Pets?

It’s pretty normal for people to talk to their pets — I do it all the time — but is it OK for humans to prefer sharing their problems with their dog, rather than, say, their spouse? A slightly disturbing new survey of more than 1,000 pet owners found that 33 percent of married wome…

“Star Wars” Nerd Boy Heaven: The Slave Leia Car Wash

Breaking news: half-naked women — especially while washing cars dressed like slave Princess Leia from “Star Wars” — get publicity. We’ll have to watch “Attack of The Show,” which threw Saturday’s slave Princess Leia car wash fundraiser, to see if the program actually gets charitable donations, though. [HeatVisionBlog.com]…

Tavi Delivers The Goods: Vintage Sassy Porn

Yeah, yeah, yeah—so apparently Tavi‘s blog got shut down for a hot second yesterday after she posted some racy fashion pics. She was back up and running in no time with an apology from Google explaining that she had triggered automatic filters. Nevertheless, the internets freaked out over the scandal. As for us, the better…
