“Tiger Blood” Energy Drink Is Here, Sadly

Move over, Four Loko — there’s a new drink in town to facilitate poor decisions. Tiger Blood, a limited time $4-a-pop energy drink by the makers of Love Energy Potion and other classy beverages, is here to keep you WINNING. Full of chipped warlock fangs and Adonis DNA, the fruit punch flavored energy drink allows you to “take more drugs than anyone can survive. Be different, have a different brain, and a different heart. When you feel Tiger Blood in your veins, you’ll realize dying’s for fools and that can’t is the cancer of happen. Period. The end.” (Or, um, not.) While Charlie Sheen is not in any way affiliated with Tiger Blood, I’m sure it receives his full stamp of approval. [Oh No They Didn't! via Harcos Labs] Keep reading »

Facebook Won’t Let Breast Cancer Survivor Post Pics Of Her Boobs

A British breast cancer survivor has had her Facebook page blocked after she posted photos of her reconstructed breasts after surgery. Melissa Tullett of Kent, 40, had a double mastectomy and posted pics of her new tatas for all to see, including nipples that had been tattooed on her new rack. But Facebook said Tullett broke the site’s terms of use regarding nudity and temporarily suspended her account until she removed the pics. Tullett told the BBC she was just trying to be inspirational. “It was to show other women that after such an ordeal you can come out of it with your dignity and your womanhood again, and that it’s not all frightening,” Tullett insisted. She told the local newspaper in Kent, “I felt bullied and picked on. It really upset me, I’m really impressed with the way my breasts look now. I think my breasts look fabulous. The photo is not offensive.”

Meh. I’m with Facebook on this one. Keep reading »

Pregnant Commuter Kept Track Of How Much You Suck At Giving Up Your Seat

Most of us would like to think that if we saw a pregnant, elderly or handicapped person on the train or subway, we would offer up our seat in a jiffy.

Helen Mirren Doesn’t Want To Be Your Stinkin’ Sex Symbol

“I love to dress up. But that’s just me. I don’t want to lay it on anyone else. If I’m held up as some sort of symbol that you have to be sexy in your 60s … well, why the f**k do you have to be sexy in your 60s? You don’t. You just have to be content and happy and hopefully healthy. I’m not putting [pressure] on people. I don’t see myself that way. And it’s very often [perpetrated by] women journalists. They say things like, ‘Tell me the secret of how you look so good?’” [rolls her eyes] Go away! Don’t do this to other women. Don’t use this interview in that way.”

Helen Mirren proves she’s still the most kickass lady in all of Hollywood. May we all have such a healthy attitude towards our own appearance, and the appearance of other women, as we age and become less conventionally “attractive.” [Scotsman] Keep reading »
