A job at Vogue? No, thank you. But we would love these two pint-sized dolls of editor Anna Wintour and creative director Grace Coddington. Barneys New York commissioned tiny Anna and Grace to be auctioned off on CharityBuzz.com, beginning August 31st, to benefit the NYC AIDS Fund. The anime-eyed pair took two weeks to make and artist Andrew Yang even trimmed Anna’s bob himself! [NY Times] Keep reading »
AIDS activists have filed a workplace safety complaint against Hustler honcho Larry Flynt over the amount of condom-less sex in all of his skin flicks. On Thursday, activists descended upon Los Angeles’ Division of Occupational Safety and Health office with 100 DVDs to show that only one scene in one porno showed a performer using a condom. Condoms, of course, help protect against the spread of HIV. Keep reading »
Think drug trafficking is reprehensible? Get a load out of tiger trafficking. When a 31-year-old Thai woman arose suspicion at the Bangkok, Thailand, international airport recently, authorities ran her luggage through the X-ray scan to take a look. Turns out, she was smuggling a tiger cub inside a suitcase of stuffed animals. The poor little guy was doped up on more drugs than a Deadhead. Keep reading »
Lady Gaga? Sarah Palin? Bitch, please, try to think of something more inspired for Halloween. If you live anywhere near a Target store, then Simon Doonan can help. The quirky style writer and creative director for Barneys designed a line of “Costume Couture” especially for Tar-jay and it’s perfect for pairs and pooches! I’m loving the spaghetti and meatball, A-list celebrity and a paparazzo, and the candy corn. Now, who will be the spaghetti to my meatball this October 31st?
“The only thing I wish I wouldn’t have done is to put out that apology [to Sarah Palin in People magazine] because it kind of makes me sound like a liar. And I’ve never lied about anything. So that’s probably the only thing. The rest of the stuff I can live with.”

As every fretful mother knows, getting your ears pierced is totally the gateway drug to getting your clit pierced by someone named “Skid” behind a pizza parlor at midnight. I think The Frisky’s new slogan should be, “We might seem like nice girls, but we’ve got a lot of nipple piercings between us!” After the jump, find out where you can find holes if you, um, go looking … Keep reading »
- A never-before-seen episode of “Family Guy,” which was banned from FOX because Lois considers having an abortion in it, will be available for sale this weekend on DVD. In “Partial Terms of Endearment,” Lois becomes a surrogate mother but wants to terminate the pregnancy after the mom-to-be unexpectedly dies. Peter and Lois are forced to watch an anti-abortion video, which tells them, “Science has proven that within hours of conception, a human fetus has started a college fund and has already made your first Mother’s Day card out of macaroni and glitter.” Ha!

- Walmart wants a sexual discrimination class-action lawsuit thrown out of court because the group suing would be so huge that it may change the definition of “class action” going forward. Depressing. [USA Today]

- California has appealed a 60-year-old law requiring the state to find a “cure” for homosexuality. [Miami Herald]
There’s gonna be a situation up in here. A cow situation.
OK, “Redneck Jersey Shore” is not really what the show will be called. But when the producer of “Jersey Shore” teams up with Comedy Central to film a reality TV show about a group of Southerners, what do y’all think is going to happen? Producer Sally Ann Salsano began casting her yokels months ago for a show tentatively titled “Party Down South,” and she must have found her trashy Southern belles and meth-addled good ol’ boys because the show has started filming. We’ll totally queue this up in the TiVo, along with “Persian Version,” the tentative title for the Iranian-American spin-off, and “Wicked Summer,” which’ll focus on “blue collar” folks in Boston. In the meantime, cue millions of Southerners irate about being depicted as hicks in five … four … three … [ABC News] Keep reading »
