Dog Dances Better Than Me

Little-known Simcha factoid: I was in my school’s Latin dance club. Yes, it sounds embarrassing for a teenager, but in real life I got to groove with a lot of hot Cubans.

More Ridiculous Than The Vampire Facial—Wrinkle-Reducing Goggles

Beer goggles: Make ugly people look prettier.

Japanese wrinkle goggles: Make ugly people look uglier, normal people look uglier.

The last completely insane anti-aging treatment we heard about was the vampire facelift, a creepy process involving facial blood injections, but now these “wrinkle goggles” make just about any beauty treatment seem legit i…

“Pink Kisses” Will Make You Feel Better About Your Breakup — For a Price

OK, so I know that this site, Pink Kisses, is designed to help women get over bad breakups. But something about it is so horribly Scary Sadshaw, so terribly desperate and faux “you go girl” that I actually feel more depressed now that I’ve seen this clip. The service aims to help women recover from…

Sarah Palin post

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/29/opinion/29traister.html?pagewanted=1&_r=2&ref=opinion

Palin was smacked with the lucky stick when she was plucked from Alaska to be John McCain’s running mate. But she charged ahead (some might say like a Mama Grizzly), forging a new path and defining a new role in the Democratic Party. As much as some liberals might find the phrases like…

Serbians Chow Down On Kangaroo Testicles At A Testicle Festival

As professional greedy food monster, there isn’t much in the world that I won’t eat. I make s’mores with a lighter on my couch and consume whole blocks of cheese in one sitting. But I am not down with testicles. They are a punch line and a tool in baby-making—not a source of food. The…

“Intimacy Dress”: Exhibitionist’s Dream Or Your Worst Nightmare

As far as we’re concerned, risqué fashion is great, provided you can pull it off without any nip slips, crotch shots, or VPLs. (Unless, of course, you’re Lady Gaga, in which case you can wear a butt-less paper bag and people will still love you.) The “Intimacy Dress,” however, turns this logic inside-out. A creatio…

Ben Folds, Nick Hornby And Pomplamoose Team Up For “Things That You Think”

Ben Folds must have loved collaborating with Nick Hornby so much on that Levi Johnston song that he had to do it again for “Things That You Think” (which totally reminds me of “You Don’t Know Me”).
