Girl Talk: The Loner Gets Talked Into Speed Dating

Last week, I set out to interview “Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger. My plan was to go in, impress her with my wife-ability, and be home in time for wine and “Parks and Recreation.” So I’m still not sure how, an hour later, I found myself sitting on a bar stool, roped into speed dating by the kind people at HurryDate.com. “There’s an odd number of men,” the publicist said, rationalizing why I needed to participate.

Being a serial online dater, I have had my share of awkward first dates. I liked the idea of spending five minutes with someone, rather than wasting a whole night to realize we were incompatible. Plus, I thought maybe I might meet a few people I wouldn’t necessarily think to go out with. Even though I had the lowest of low expectations, I was still sweating and self-conscious. Are they noticing how big my head is? Can they smell me sweating? Keep reading »

Liveblogging “Jersey Shore”!

There’s only a few hours left for MTV to change its mind and show Snookie getting punched on tonight’s episode — not because that would be entertaining, but because they’ve already showed it in a clip, so showing it in context would be the right thing to do. But I’m not holding my breath. Check back to this post at 10pm EST as I, along with special guest John DeVore, liveblog the latest episode of “Jersey Shore.” Fingers crossed my jumbo jar of pepperoncini came in the mail today.

Big Shocker: “Jersey Shore” Cast Can’t Identify Joe Biden


Hmph. Well, this is mean. Jay Leno trotted out “Jersey Shore” cast members Mike “The Situation,” DJ Pauly D, and Beloved Snookie on last night’s show and subjected them to an intelligence test! Well, OK, it was for his quiz show “Jaywalking,” only standing still in the studio instead of out on the streets. As you might have expected, the two guidos and one guidette weren’t exactly up on their knowledge of American history and presidential politics. So what was the point? To make fun of them? They shoulda turned the tables on Jay and asked him some questions. Like how to make sausage and peppers. And how many cans of hairspray it takes to make a pouf stand upright in a strong wind. Clip above! Keep reading »

Sex Lube Advertising Fail

I had to stare at this lube ad (see a larger version here) for a long time before I FINALLY understood it. So, this chick, her pooper hurts so bad from unlubed action that she can’t/won’t sit down, despite there being tons of available seats. As well as being gross, this ad is just way too subtle to be effective. One of my coworkers even thought it was potentially selling lube to rapists, since the perspective is creepy and voyeuristic.

Beauty Road Test: Smooth Away

While I always love to read the advice Wendy gives out in her “Dear Wendy” column, I was sort of surprised by the number of responses her column yesterday received. Who knew people could get so worked up over body hair? But I guess I shouldn’t be so shocked — just look at the number of hair removal products on the market. Like the Smooth Away, which I road-tested last night while watching TV. Keep reading »

Blankets With Sleeves (And Legs!) Have Been Keeping The Masses Snuggly Since 1975

Copyranter just uncovered what could be considered the precursor to the Snuggie/Slanket craze — a onesie with feet called “The Bundler” was THE “sleeper” gift of the holiday season in 1975. The Bundler is far more body-conscious than its modern counterparts, thanks to the fetching rope belt. Step up your game, Snuggie! [Copyranter] Keep reading »
