Help settle a debate in The Frisky offices. Both Sophie and I think this video of a mama cat suckling her baby kittens and a gaggle of ducklings is so frickin’ cute. But Megan is seriously perturbed by the situation. It’s not natural, she says. Well, obviously! It’s sweet to see how protective the mama cat is of all of her babies, be they furry or feathered.

I’m totally entranced by these X-ray photos of a woman before and after being laced into a corset. Apparently they were taken in 1908(!), during the corset’s heyday. Makes me feel very grateful to live in this era, since I can barely tolerate Spanx. [Buzzfeed]
“Well, see, [women] got this thing about minute men. And so, when you’re a minute man, women get mad. But it’s actually a compliment because if you’re in the bed for like 45 minutes and nothing is happening, you should get your life together.”
– Who will stand up for the two-pump chumps of the world? Tyrese will! The male model/”Fast & Furious 6″ star hit up “Chelsea Lately” and told Chels all about why “minute men” are horribly misunderstood. Why? Because we’re supposed to be complimented when a man ejaculates quickly — from our overwhelming hotness, of course — instead of, you know, enjoying sexual intercourse. Congratulations on your contribution to the spike of sales in vibrators, Tyrese. [Madame Noire]
“Guys, do you want to know a secret? You don’t have to be funny in order to attract us. Believe us, between your scalps and your calves, you’ve already got us. Your narrow, decrescendoing hips, and your soft, very hairy thighs leave us breathless. The truth is, there is no evolutionary cause for you to have to be funny. And precisely because your ancestors, and your ancestors’ grandparents, and your ancestors’ grandparents’ grandparents, and so on and so on, had no procreative need to cultivate a sense of humor and performance, you literally do not have it in your DNA.”
– “The Office’s” Ellie Kemper takes every assumption that women aren’t funny — and don’t need to be because they’re sexy‚ and tosses it on it’s head to great effect (and some befuddlement in certain commenters). That’s just a small snippet of her entire GQ essay. Take a break from your day and have a chuckle courtesy of this very funny lady. [GQ]
Oh look at this: It’s Anna Wintour, impeccably turned out at the opening of Schiaparelli And Prada: Impossible Conversations, a new exhibition featuring work from both inimitable designers on now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. How does Ms. Wintour do it?
Jessica and Hunter are a couple of LA airheads looking for spiritual guidance. So they’ve decided to sign up for an ashtanga yoga class — whatever, Gwyneth Paltrow’s doing it. But can they actually handle the intensity of an ashtanga yoga class? And can an ashtanga yoga class handle them? (Probably not.) [YouTube] Keep reading »
