Doughnuts Cause Depression

Let me preface this depressing news by saying that I’ve never felt anything but supreme joy when eating a doughnut. However, according to the British Dietetic Association, doughnuts are dangerous to our mental health:

Are Hard Nipples An Under-Used Accessory?


During last night’s episode of “Single Ladies,” I was transfixed by Stacey Dash’s hard nipples on more than one occasion. Her nipples were sticking out of her thin dresses, and it was possible to distinguish between the actual nipple and the aureole. (I told you I was focused.) I don’t think thi…

The Lohan Defense: Kombucha Tea & 7 Other Things You Should Avoid Before A Drug Test

Lindsay Lohan has evaded yet another probation violation for failing a routine alcohol test. Perhaps the judge believed Lindsay’s claims that Komboucha tea was the culprit for the false positive result.

Monkey Behavior Advertising, Just Like Human Beer Advertising, Appeals To A Male’s Penis

Anyone can make a beer ad: boobs, butts, more boobs, and an ice cold brewski. Don Draper, we have a winner! It turns out that monkey advertising is very similar to that of their two-legged ancestors: sex sells.

Bill Clinton’s My Little Pony Knowledge Is Put To The Test

When I was a kid, I begged my parents for months to get me a “Mothers The Pony.” They’d go to toy store after toy store, and no one would have any idea what they were talking about because I’d gotten the name wrong—I, of course, meant that I wanted a My Little Pony. Apparently,…

Is This Princess Diana And Kate Middleton “Newsweek” Cover Tasteless?

The late Princess Diana and the very-much-alive Kate Middleton strut side-by-side on the latest cover of Newsweek. It’s shocking, yes, but it also strikes me as tasteless to play around with the image of a dead person who left behind two children. This Photoshopped cover image appears on a Newsweek double-issue in which editor-in-chief Tina…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: “Bachelorette” Ashley Says Goodbye To Bentley

Who knew “The Bachelorette” could teach us such important lessons about grammar? (If you haven’t watched yet, SPOILER ALERT.) The drama of this week’s episode all stemmed from that moment when Bentley Williams told Ashley Hebert that he’d like to leave the show with a “dot, dot, dot.” Well, this week, Ashley finally got her…

The Bristol Palin/Meghan McCain Catfight Goes Another Round

Bristol Palin isn’t done making catty observations about Meghan McCain. First, in her memoir, Not Afraid Of Life, she wrote Meghan was always complaining. Some of that is only fair, I suppose, after Meghan’s swipes at Sarah Palin in her own book. However, last night Bristol stopped by Fox News to bare her claws once…

Dolly Parton Ushers In A Better Day

Can we take a moment to appreciate that Better Day is Dolly Parton’s freaking 41st studio album? Much respect, Dolly, much respect.

Apparently, nobody ever told “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf (whose name I continue to never know how to spell) that it was ungentlemanly to kiss and tell, because dude straight up told the world that he hooked up with costar Megan Fox while they were filming the movie.
