15 Reasons You Should Be Banned From The Internet

Over the weekend, my brother from another mother — and The Frisky’s Mind of Man — John DeVore posted a link to a funny slideshow on Dumb as a Blog called “10 Reasons You Should Be Banned From The Internet.” Such reasons include “you still check your MySpace account,” “you stalk your ex,” and “you obsessively Google yourself.” Fair enough, DeVore.

“Paletas” Is Spanish For Heaven On A Stick

On a recent boiling hot summer day, we were on a stroll, dripping with sweat from head to ass to toe, craving something cool and refreshing. An answer to our prayers came in the form of a woman selling what she called paletas (also known as “Mexican ice pops”). Not your average popsicle, these babies are packed with fruit and other fresh flavors in wicked combinations like mango-chile, horchata-strawberry, and dulce de leche. We were in heaven. Imagine our delight when we discovered that there was a cookbook — called Palepas: Authentic Recipes for Mexican Ice Pops, Shaved Ice & Aguas Frescas — filled with recipes for these easy-to-make treats. Now all future cravings can be satiated in our — and your! — own kitchen. Hallelujah!

Shopping Guide: 10 Safari-Ready Rucksacks
To be perfectly honest, I don’t actually know what distinguished a “rucksack” from a “backpack” other than a rucksack looks like something you would wear to hold your things while you ride an elephant on safari. Also, I think there is always some aspect of closure that requires cinching, rather than merely buckling or zipping. And lastly, backpacks are dorky and rucksacks are cool. This has been your fashion accessories lesson for the day. Keep clicking for 10 cute rucksacks…

Who’s That Heiress?

At first glance, I couldn’t tell who this was a photo of. The major bangs, vacant, heavily made-up eyes, and pointy lined lips threw me off — and creeped me out a bit. Turns out, this is a photo of Paris Hilton from the new issue of V — and the rest of the images are just as strange. Check ‘em out after the jump — did you recognize Paris or do you think she looks like someone (or something) else? [ONTD] Keep reading »
