This month at The Frisky, we are exploring a wide variety of things that every woman needs. Let’s start with the obvious: MEN. Ladies, protest all you want, but the truth is that we need them. And not just in the romantic, reproductive or changing light bulbs sense. The men in our lives fill a wide variety of important roles. After the jump, the kinds of guys every woman needs to have on her team. Keep reading »
This Target greeting card is one of those things that was offensive to begin with, but crossed way over the good taste line when Whitney Houston passed away. Luckily, the chain had the good sense to realize that they needed to get the card off the shelves ASAP. “The card was in our stores prior to Ms. Houston’s death. As soon as this was brought to our attention, we began the process of removing the card from all applicable stores,” a rep told TMZ. Still, I’m cringing. And wondering whom it ever would have been appropriate to give this card to in the first place. [ABC News, Reddit (photo)]
Attention those of you who have always dreamed of owning your very own village in France. For the reasonable price of $369,930 the entire village of Courbefy, located in the region of Limousin, can be yours. The Credit Agricole bank had to repossess Courbefy after a downturn in the farming industry led to its decline and eventual bankruptcy. Your new village would come complete with 200 people, 19 buildings, a swimming pool, horse stables and a tennis court. Surely there’s some celebrity out there whose ego would be fed by this sort of thing. Or some rich person. Or some not rich person who wants to live a more “Downton Abbey” lifestyle. Who wants to lend me a few bucks? [Newslite]
You know you were curious about what would happen when Coco’s ass and aerial yoga made each other’s acquaintance. Well, here you go. I happen to know that this pose is called Monkey. I know this because I’ve done aerial yoga. But my butt never looks quite like that. Coincidentally, “Fat Bottomed Girls” by Queen just came on my Spotify mix. As Freddie Mercury says, “Fat bottomed girls make the rocking world go ’round.” Indeed. [Buzzfeed]
I was pleased to learn about the existence of the 1920′s organization called the Anti-Flirt Club. Founded by a woman named Alice Reighly, the group was comprised of young women who had been “embarrassed by men in automobiles and on street corners.” Who among us has not? While we appreciate the Anti-Flirt Club’s efforts to protect women from future flirting-related gaffes, the problem is still running rampant nearly a century later. After the jump, I’ve taken the liberty of amending a few of their rules for modern women who don’t want to be embarrassed by men in automobiles and on street corners. Keep reading »
One thing, we’ve discovered, that all of The Frisky ladies have in common is the fact that we played really bizarre games when we were children. I feel very strongly that you all need to know about these games. Click through to see if you can match the screwed up game with its player. Teaser: you will read about murder plots, ass sniffing, asphyxiation, sandwiches, makeup and more. Oh, and we would be thrilled if you shared your messed up childhood games with us too. Clearly, we’re in no position to judge.
