Will Danica Patrick Win The Indy 500 This Weekend?

Danica Patrick made history last year when she became the first lady to win an IndyCar series, during a race in Japan. Now, the 27-year-old is hoping to drive home a much bigger win at the Indy 500 tomorrow. According to folks in the know, “The Indy 500 is the most important in the series and takes about three and one-half hours of all-out driving.” Translation: Crossing the finish line first would give Patrick the driving credentials to justify all the media attention and magazine covers she’s gotten over the years. Here’s why we’re thinking Patrick has what it takes…

Mazel Tov To The First Female Black Rabbi!

America has its first black president in the White House—and now we’re about to have our first female black rabbi in the holy house. On June 6, Alysa Stanton will make history when she is ordained as the FFBR by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati. She certainly didn’t see this in her cards growing up. She was raised in a Pentecostal fam, but she was always interested in other religions. “Judaism was what resonated with me. It’s what touched my soul,” says Stanton. She reportedly drove 144 miles a week to meet with the rabbi who agreed to perform her conversion ceremony. “I’ve been breaking down barriers the moment I stepped out of the mikvah, but the amount of attention that it’s been getting and the well-wishers have been amazing to me,” she said. Well, we’ll drink to that. L’chaim! [Jewish Journal] Keep reading »

Cricket Player Benched For…Genital Warts?

Pakistani Cricket player Shoaib Akhtar has been benched from playing in next month’s World Twenty20 tournament due to an injury. You’d think most fans would be satisfied with the word “injury” as an explanation, but the Pakistani Cricket Board decided it was cool to divulge in a freaking press release exactly what his “injury” was. Dude has genital warts. Since his wounds (way TMI) need treatment for another ten days, the board will have to appoint a replacement player. Now, we’re all for full disclosure, but it just seems wrong for the Cricket Board to announce to the world that Akhtar has genital warts. What will this mean for his ability to pick up cricket groupies? [GuardianUK]

Crave: “Bought” By Anna David (Win A Copy!)

Summer has (almost) arrived! You know what that means? It’s time to put down the Dostoyevsky and put that dogeared copy of “Siddhartha” back on the shelf — those books are for the damp, frigid winter — and pick up some trashy, sexy, and deeply enjoyable beach reading. Our first recommendation for your summer of pleasurable page turning? “Bought” by Anna David. The novel is a followup to “Party Girl,” and continues to follow the oh-so-exciting life of L.A. magazine writer, Emma Swanson. This time around, she’s writing a story about a high-class call girl and discovers some tricks of the trade in the process. But it’s not all fun and games, as Emma must contend with a moral quandry of her own. Hooked yet? [$14.99, Amazon]

We’re giving away five copies of “Bought” by Anna David, but you have to work if you want it in your beach bag. The five best commenters for this coming week—from today, Friday, May 22 through Thursday, May 28—will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

What’s The Oddest Penis You’ve Ever Encountered?

I consider myself a lucky gal. When I go shopping, I always find something amazing, on sale, in my size. My FriskyScopes are always freakishly dead on, and Kiki sends them to me in advance. I’ve got great friends, a wonderful family, and the best dog in the world. Oh, and I’ve never encountered a truly freakish wang in all my years of boning — unless you count the guy whose balls were so ginormous that they dwarfed his average-sized member. After the jump, the ladies share their experiences with the many varieties of penes. (That’s the plural form of penis, dick lovers!). Keep reading »

Laundry: The Adderall Of Chores

One of the reason why I love Sarah Haskin’s “Target: Women” videos is that sometimes they force me to laugh at my own stereotypical womanly ways. This week, she goes off on detergent commercials which make it seem like women love doing laundry. “Why can’t we break the spin cycle?” she asks. “Because when you’re high on laundry, life is just better… it smells better.” Can I just say, this fits me to a T? I love doing laundry and nothing makes me squeal like the downy freshness of just washed towels. The only thing better? The smell of bleach. Keep reading »

Shanghai Woman Nearly Mows Down Men For A New Car

I remember how badly I wanted, no needed, an Easy-Bake Oven when I was little. I begged my dad, pleaded with my mom, wept often, and eventually started cooking things in plastic cups on top of lamps in my bedroom cause I’m mad crafty. I got my sweet revenge when that burning plastic smell filled the house. But some girls will do whatever it takes to get what they want, including this woman in China who threw a hissy fit at a car dealership when her guy refused to buy her a car. The event was captured on video and posted on China’s version of YouTube. So far, almost 2 million folks have watched it, and it’s sparked a huge debate about gender. Why? Keep reading »
