Oh Come On: Best Buy Tweets About “Serial,” Instantly Gets Crap For It

Oh Come On: Best Buy Tweets About "Serial," Instantly Gets Crap For It

It wasn’t the first time, and it won’t be the last, that a brand posts something on social media and instantly regrets it.

For those of you who’ve been listening to the popular “Serial” podcast, about the real-life murder of Hae Min Lee in 1999, you’re aware that there’s an ongoing deliberation about where the crime was committed. One report claims the high school student was strangled in the Best Buy parking lot, before her accused killer used a pay phone at the entrance of the store to make his “she’s dead, come and get me” call to a friend.

Steve Carell & Jimmy Fallon’s Barbershop Quartet Sing “Sexual Healing” And Totally Kill It

Steve Carell & Jimmy Fallon's Barbershop Quartet Sing "Sexual Healing" And Kill It
"Baby, I'm Hot Just Like An Oven, I Need Some Lovin'"

Steve Carell guest starred on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” last night, and joined the host’s famous Babershop Quartet “The Ragtime Gals” in singing one of the world’s sexiest songs. The “40-Year-Old Virgin” actor took lead vocals on “Sexual Healing,” while Jimmy and the gals belted out back-up. If you’re not hypnotized by all of the stripes, you’ll see that they actually did a pretty bang up job (do people still say that?)

Marvin Gaye would be so proud.

Update: I Wanted This Cute Comedian To “Be My Boyfriend,” And He Responded To My Christmas Wish

Update: I Wanted This Cute Comedian To "Be My Boyfriend," And He Responded To My Christmas Wish

I’m already planning the rom-com about this meet-cute. I would like Kate Hudson to play me (or, per a coworker’s suggestion, Jennifer Lawrence in a blonde wig), and Chris Pratt to play Rich. To remind you, Rich is the comedian who almost flawlessly impersonates characters from 25 of the most beloved Christmas movies.

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s the low down. Earlier this week, I penned a “Be My Boyfriend” letter to Rich here on The Frisky. I was floored by how accurate his impressions were in his “25 Days of Christmas Movie Impressions” video, and wanted to tip my hat to him. I told him about how I wanted to find him under my Christmas tree this year and that I would write to Santa to please deliver him. (Yes, that is how I tip my hat. Don’t hate.) Keep reading »

This Is What Happens When A High School Student Allows A Teacher To Take A Bite Of His Pot Brownie

This Is What Happens When A High School Student Allows A Teacher To Take A Bite Of His Pot Brownie

It was just another day at high school in Arnold, Maryland when one little pot brownie changed the game. The story goes like this: a student was eating his beloved brownie in class, sharing with his girlfriend (as you do) who sat nearby, when their teacher approached and asked for a bite of the brownie.

Now, before I continue with this story, I want it to be known that I have no idea what kind of teacher would actually accept a brownie from a student mid-class, let alone ASK FOR IT. Hello, inappropriate. Also, germs. Moving on… Keep reading »

Bumble Is Just Like Tinder, But Women Have All The Power

Bumble Is Just Like Tinder, But Girls Have All The Power

Our prayers have been answered, ladies! Remember Whitney Wolfe, the former Tinder executive who claimed to be sexually harassed by the company’s CMO, and then was unfairly stripped of her co-founder title? Well it looks like Tinder messed with the wrong badass chick.

Last week, TechCrunch announced that Whitney, along with some other former Tinder employees, have created a dating app of their own, called Bumble— a Tinder competitor. It’s like Tinder in that users are expected to swipe left or right depending on their interest in another’s profile, but there is one thing that is radically different: on Bumble, boys are NOT allowed to send the first message.

BOOYAH. Keep reading »
