Barbie’s New Career Is … Computer Engineering!

She’s been a doctor, she’s been a punk rocker, hell, she’s even moonlit as JK Rowling from the “Harry Potter” series. But Barbie‘s 2010 career will be of the geekier persuasion: computer engineer. Tech star Barbie comes with a laptop and glasses — both, of course, pink — and a pretty sweet Bluetooth headset.

If only she could suddenly come alive when your dang printer’s not working. [Barbie Media] Keep reading »

A Woman’s Take On The Super Bowl’s “Man’s Last Stand” Dodge Commercial

As we all know, the theme of this year’s Super Bowl commercials (lovingly curated in a slideshow by Amelia) was OH NOES! WOMEN ARE EMASCULATING THE MENFOLK!

Dodge Chargers’ ad about “Man’s Last Stand,” in particular, had a lot of critics rolling their eyes for the way it depicted modern dudes as a sorry, henpecked lot. Producer MacKenzie Fegan has filmed a “response” ad called “Woman’s Last Stand,” and though it’s a wee bit bitter, the sentiment has us fist-pumping like we’re on the freaking Jersey Shore. (Warning: two little curse words make it not safe for work.) [The Sexist] Keep reading »

Tina Fey Glams Up For “Vogue”

What The Hell Is A “Vagina Facial”?

I know what you’re thinking and it’s not that, you perv. A vagina facial — or a “vagacial,” as it’s called — is a post-waxing treatment at the Script Wax Bar in San Francisco available to women one week after they’ve gotten a Brazilian. According to BellaSugar, for $60, the spa’s estheticians will cleanse your vulva with anti-bacterial body wash and witch hazel (witch hazel?), exfoliate, pluck out ingrown hairs, apply “an anti-freckle, anti-acne, or calming mask,” and then a lightening cream.

My oh my, where to start … ? Keep reading »

  • Wow, people get very upset when you try to kick a man out of office for beating his girlfriend. A closed-door meeting of the New York State Senate apparently got crazy recently as pols discussed expelling Sen. Hiram Monserrate from the Senate after he was convicted of assault. Sen. Kevin Parker, who opposed Monserrate’s expulsion, allegedly “charged” towards Sen. Diane Savino, called Savino a “bitch” and yelled “F*** you!” Later, Parker said he apologized to Savino and added, “Everyone’s talking about civility in Albany being dead, but I’m keeping chivalry very much alive.” Ha. Funny. These are our elected officials, folks! [New York Daily News]

Groom Accuses Bride Of Hiding Her Facial Hair With A Veil

An Arab ambassador to Dubai hastily tried to divorce his new bride after he lifted the niqab veil covering her face for the first time ever and saw his wifey was cross-eyed and sporting a beard. Aw, poor lady. The pissed-off groom claimed his mother-in-law duped him into the marriage by showing him photographs of the bride’s sister; plus, the few times the groom met his bride in person, she wore the face-covering naqib veil the whole time.

Most teenagers sleep a lot, but not like 15-year-old Louisa Ball of the U.K. Louisa suffers from a rare neurological sleep disorder called Kleine-Levin Syndrome, where she can doze off for up to two weeks at a time. Doctors aren’t sure what causes these bouts of deep sleep, but they suspect something with the brain’s hypothalamus goes awry.

Oh, and FYI, Kleine-Levin Syndrome affects males 70 percent of the time. But Louisa is so gorgeous, we can see why the Daily Mail couldn’t resist slapping up her picture as a “real life Sleeping Beauty.” Keep reading »
