Join Us! The Frisky Will Live Tweet During “Modern Family” Tonight

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been watching season five of “Modern Family” religiously since it premiered a month ago, and have since developed an unhealthy addiction to the Dunphys.

Something else I know? I need input when I have life-changing questions like What kind of bra is Sofia Vergara wearing that

VOTE! Our WTF?! Halloween Costume Battle Continues— And It’s Getting Punny!

There are so many things wrong with both of these costumes.

We present to you a vampire receiving oral sex, hence the clever name “Down For The Count,” and the literal interpretation of the “Shit Hitting The Fan.”

I would not—I repeat—would NOT have sex with either of these people…

VOTE! Our WTF?! Halloween Costume Battle Continues With A Bush Flasher And A Blow-Up Doll

Caution: Both of these costumes will scar children for life. But which one is more repulsive to you: the bush flasher or the blow up doll? To prepare you for some of the heinous, inappropriate getups you’ll see on Halloween next week, we present to you our WTF?! Halloween Costume Contest.

VOTE! Which Halloween Costume Screams “Overcompensating”?

Both equally repulsive and offensive Halloween costumes, my initial knee-jerk reaction to both the human ring toss costume and sex costume would be to crotch-kick the person wearing them. Unfortunately, doing so would likely land me behind bars— an ironic twist to my “Orange Is The New Black” costume.

Instead, let’s just…

Our WTF?! Halloween Costume Battle Begins With A Vibrator And A Vagina Masquerading As A Man In A Canoe

Something happens to Halloween when you become an adult.

The holiday is no longer a night known for trick-or-treating, sugar highs and precious children dressed up as fairy tale characters. Instead, doom and dread take over as you retire your “skanky” [insert noun here] costume, and in turn, prepare yourself to…

Poll: Should Parents Face Arrest If Their Child Is A Bully?

A riveting op-ed by KJ Dell’Antonia in The New York Times yesterday still has me thinking. The piece, questioning whether or not parents should face criminal charges if their teenager is a bully, describes the recent suicide of a teenage girl who was endlessly harassed and cyber bullied by two of her female classmates.

But before we begin another season of zombie madness, let’s have a moment of silence for Andrea (RIP), zombie Merle’s brain (RIP), and Carl’s innocence, lost in season three (also, RIP).

Poll: Would You Help Pay For Your Own Engagement Ring?

Would you ever help your significant other pay for your engagement ring? Apparently it’s happening more than we know.

Last week, while falling asleep to the evening news, I overheard a report that had me bolt up from my semi-coma and stare at my TV screen in confusion. The newscasters were discussing the…

Poll: Are First Dates At Home Cozy Or Creepy?

Let’s face it: the economy sucks. And unfortunately, not having much money can sometimes get in the way of things … including dating.

Poll: Can Selfish People Do Selfless Things?

After live tweeting through last night’s season premiere of “Nashville,” and then discussing the episode this morning around the water cooler (okay, not really … we were just at our desks), it dawned on me: every character who appeared to be doing a good deed was really doing something that would ultimately benefit them. Or, at…
