Warning: this ad from Get Up, Australian’s marriage equality organization, will give you chills and make you tear up. Whether those tears spill over and to what extent is dependent on how hormonal you are today. It was a two tissue viewing for me. Love is love! Marriage equality for all!

12 Celebs Biting It

Q: What do you do when someone bites it right before your eyes? A: Laugh. Obviously. I fully condone this behavior and I have every right to considering that I am usually the one tripping and falling. I am a proud klutz and I love it when people support my accidents with hearty laughter. It makes the aftermath less embarrassing.

For example, Antonio Banderas is totally not handling Salma Hayek’s fall correctly. If he’s not going to help her, he should at least have a giggle! Instead he’s looking away. How he manages, I don’t know — the look on her face is just so expressive! It’s okay, I had a hearty laugh on his behalf (once I found out that Salma was fine, of course). Keep clicking for some more celebs biting it. It’s OK to laugh. I promise. 

Quick Tip: Bash Flower Stems So Blooms Last Longer

The show came to an end in 2005, but I just started watching HBO’s critically acclaimed “Six Feet Under” for the first time. In addition to being just wonderful entertainment, the show has also been informative on topics like mortuary science and floral design. Floral design? you’re probably thinking to yourself.

A Crappy Way To Get Revenge For Cheating

Best/Worst Tattoos

I’m not entirely sure I believe this story, but according to VeryWeirdNews.com, when tattoo artist Ryan L. Fitzjerald found out his girlfriend was cheating on him, he didn’t get mad, he got even. Rossie Brovent hit Fitzjerald with a $100,000 lawsuit, alleging that he inked her back with an enormous steaming pile of poop without her permission. Rather than dump Brovent when he found out that she was sleeping with his best friend, Fitzjerald got her to sign a waiver allowing him to tattoo her with a design “at the artist’s discretion.” This is the result. Oof. If this is for real, that’s a pretty shitty (ha!) way to get revenge. [Very Weird News via Buzzfeed]

“Fatism is an ‘ism’ like any other, but our culture turns a blind eye toward that particular version of separatism. Perhaps it is our fear of our own frailties and humanity that makes us want to turn the other gaunt cheek away from the fat we see. If we move away from it, we don’t have to look at these complexities within ourselves. Perhaps it’s easier to label a fat person with qualities we don’t like in ourselves than to want to find out more about what their vulnerabilities are and what makes them tick. … So for the love of being part of this larger conversation around addressing the pop-culture-sanctioned-fatism, next time we see someone who is yo-yo dieting and has a tortured relationship with food and their body, rather than make fun of them, I beseech us all to pause and offer a little curiosity for what lurks underneath, and, if appropriate, maybe even move toward it.”

Alanis Morissette has written a really smart and compelling piece for iVillage about the “double-edged ‘butter knife’ of weight perception” in America and her own struggles with it. This is just a snippet but the whole piece is worth a read! [iVillage]
