Rick Santorum Would No Longer Like His Name Associated With Anal Sex

Conservative Pennsylvanian politician Rick Santorum announced that he’d be running for president earlier this year, but he’s facing an uphill battle–in part because he’s got a little Google name association problem. You see, Mr. Santorum raised the ire of sex columnist Dan Savage the last time he ran for president because of Santorum’s stringent anti-gay positions, so Savage advocated that “Santorum” should become the new name for “the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.” So yes, now when you Google “Santorum” you get results for Rick Santorum, conservative presidential candidate and, well, that other stuff.

And now Santorum wants Google to do something about it. Keep reading »

Christina Aguilera Named Her New Perfume “Royal Desire”

There are a lot of things I think about when I think about Christina Aguilera: power ballads, blonde hair extensions, synchronized choreography — did I mention extensions? But I can honestly say I’ve never once put Aguilera’s name in the same sentence with “royal.” And yet, Ms. “What A Girl Wants” has named her new fragrance “Royal Desire.” Maybe she’s trying to send a not-so-subtle message to Prince Harry? Explains Xtina: “With this scent, I wanted to create a truly sensory experience…” — Um, right. Perfume is a sensory experience. I’m following. — “…and provide a moment every day where women could pamper themselves and feel sexy and beautiful … exuding the sensual elegance of a queen.” Ah, so it’s not Harry she’s after, but Queen Elizabeth! Watch out lady, Christina’s coming for you! [Racked] Keep reading »

What’s Happening Here? Bronzer Face Edition

It’s weird enough that this model is walking the runway at the Carlos Diez Spring 2011 presentation in an adult size onesie covered with hairpieces. But then he’s also got a face full of bronzer like there’s no tomorrow. Like he fell face down in a pile of bronzer. Or cake batter. Or maybe mud? Not a good look. [La Gazette du Mauvais Gout]

An At Home Manicure That Just Gels

I love having a manicure, but get bored at the nail salon, so I was thrilled about Red Carpet Manicure’s new At-Home Gel Manicure line. The line, which includes a LED light to help set your gel polish, gives you everything you need to do your own gel manicures at home. Why bother with gels? They last much longer — up to two weeks — and won’t chip and crack like regular manicures. Buying everything you’d need to do it at home will cost around $80, which is equal to about three salon gel manicures, so it’s totally worth it. Plus, Red Carpet already has more than 20 great colors, with more coming this winter! Gel on!

It’s my birthday this week (you can send all b-day wishes care of The Frisky offices, thanks!) and my mom made me cookies. These are her special chocolate chip Oreo cookies, which are homemade chocolate chip cookies with Oreo cookies baked inside. Blam! I just blew your mind, didn’t I?
