Topless Women Skydiving In Danish Commerical = Most Obnoxiously Sexy Ad Ever

Sorry, Burger King! Your esteemed “women wearing bikinis shaped like hamburger buns taking a shower” ad is not the klassiest ad ever—that distinction goes to this 2008 commercial which is truly the most obnoxiously sexy commercial on the planet.

Need great online bargains on appliances? I totally get that from the scads of women in an airplane, ripping their bras off and skydiving topless! Makes perfect sense. [The Sun UK] Keep reading »

Onion Spoof: Law Makes Woman Name Baby, Paint Nursery Before Getting An Abortion


This Onion News Network spoof is amazing: a bunch of talking heads discuss a fake Arkansas law requiring a woman to pick a baby name and paint her nursery either pink or blue before having an abortion. Maybe she should have to sit in the nursery for an hour each day and look at baby booties, too!

Don’t watch unless your sense of humor this morning is pretty dry … [The Onion] Keep reading »

Quotable: Note To Self, Don’t Get Romantically Involved With Alec Baldwin

“What’s worse than waking up with a 25-year-old woman, you know what I mean? You want to go shoot yourself because you have nothing to say to her. Seriously. It’s sad but there are men who go for whatever their earliest ideal of a sexual partner was, they stay with that ideal, meaning men often lock into the image of the first girl they loved at 18. They get stuck in an idea of sexuality with young women. Other men learn to see beyond all that. …

Men are literally lying in bed with their wives when the marriage is essentially over thinking ‘I’ve got to get the hell out of here’ and have a fantasy woman in mind. Then you get divorced, meet a woman, marry her and, by the time all that goes by, you’ve aged a few years and are ready to go back to your ex-wife. You want a woman who is sane and normal. A woman who is more like you. You’ve gotten older.”

—Alec Baldwin, who apparently has quite a bit in common with his character from “It’s Complicated” [Contact Music] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Woman Has Beef With Florida Hospital Over Court-Ordered Bed Rest

  • Samantha Burton, 26, of Florida, hired the ACLU to strike down a court order sought by Tallahassee Memorial Hospital after she was confined to bed rest against her will during a difficult pregnancy. In March 2009, Burton began to go into premature labor during her 25th week of pregnancy and went to the hospital. But when they told her she may have to be on bed rest for the rest of her pregnancy, Burton said she had to take care of her two toddlers at home. The hospital then received a court order to force Burton on bed rest to “preserve the life and health of [her] unborn child.” Sadly, Burton eventually ended up miscarrying. But now the ACLU is on the case over the alleged violation of Burton’s right to make her own medical decisions and arguing the court-ordered bed rest set a dangerous precedent for other pregnant women who may engage in risky behaviors.

Forever 21′s Blatant Banksy Copycat

Please, Forever 21, at least try to make it look like you’re not totally ripping off the street artist Banksy with this $22 cotton hoodie. Admittedly, he probably doesn’t care that he’s being ripped off by a mall chain store: Banksy is so “arty” that he doesn’t sell doodads with his designs on them; instead he posts JPEGs of all his artwork online for his admirers to take for free.

But still. It’s the principle of the thing, Forever 21: think up your own designs! [Forever 21, Banksy] Keep reading »

VH1′s “The New Virginity”: Yet Another Documentary About Virgins

Virginity documentaries: they’re hot right now. A few weeks ago we reported on an upcoming documentary, “How To Lose Your Virginity,” by filmmaker Therese Shechter. But tonight at 11p.m. (EST), VH1 joins in with an episode called “The New Virginity” for VH1 News. The program focuses mostly on the virgins of pop culture — the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Donna Martin on 90210, etc. — and the hypocrisy of their at-times-sexual public persona with their alleged chastity vows. It will also explain creepy practices like abstinence pledges and purity balls to those of us lucky enough not to get roped into them. Plus, Jessica Valenti, author of The Purity Myth: How America’s Obsession With Virginity Is Hurting Young Women and one of the co-founders of Feministing, will be featured as an expert — that’s reason enough to watch!
