Simon’s Cat Does Christmas

Here at The Frisky we love us some “Simon’s Cat” videos, the line drawing animations staring Simon and his ne’er-do-well cat. The latest installment arrives just in time for the holidays with a fitting theme: “Santa Claws.” We think you can guess where this one is going. Once Simon’s cat gets left alone with the Christmas tree and gifts, there is nothing sacred, no item exempt from this feline’s tearing claws, no in-house tree that cannot be decimated.

Meet Aimee Mullins: Athlete, Model, Actress, Muse, Double Amputee

If you’ve not previously encountered Aimee Mullins, she’s a pretty extraordinary woman. Born without fibulae, she had her legs amputated below the knee as a toddler. She went on to become a track and field star, a model and muse for designer Alexander McQueen, and performed in artist Matthew Barney’s “Cremaster 3″ movie. In a recent interview, she discusses McQueen’s death, how she “uses her birth-given disability to make others see what is possible when they rethink their notions of beauty and opportunity,” and what makes her a lucky girl.

Your Period Is Annoying

We happen to think this commercial from Chile for Kitadol menstrual relief pills is hilarious. We are not a fan of getting our period, an experience that leaves us feeling bloated, irritated, and ready to smash all comers. Which is why this ad is so great: it shows it like we feel it. The only thing missing for this Viking stand-in who symbolizes how chicks suffer on their periods is one of those studded metal balls chained to the end of a stick that we’d like to use on someone when we’re cramping 10 ways ’til Tuesday.

Milk Does Ryan Dorsey’s Body Good

Meet Ryan Dorsey, some random guy put on this earth to make life go down a little easier for women. What do we know about Ryan? He’s an actor! He’s a model! He’s 22! He describes himself as “fun and easy to work with,” which I initially misread as just “easy,” which would, you know, be good. But be warned, ladies! He doesn’t have time for BS or flakes! He is 5’10″ and weighs 150 pounds, in case you were wondering. Also: hazel eyes and part Native American. Tasty. Usually, we don’t like guys with this long hair, but we are willing to overlook that issue on account of those abs. Well played, Ryan. Well played. [OHLALA] Keep reading »

What You Need: Over-Priced Condoms

Sir Richard’s Condom Company. It sounds fancy, doesn’t it? If you’re tired of sneaking around drug stores late at night to buy condoms, there’s a new company that makes picking up prophylactics not only chic, but economically sound. Now, these condoms don’t come cheap. They’re $14 for a pack of 12. But for every condom the company sells, they’ll donate a condom to a country in need (in other words, in a part of the world where safe sex practices do not abound). Their slogan: “Doing good never felt better.” Ha! The packaging is chic, and they can be found everywhere from Whole Foods to Fred Segal. Their latest ad campaign points out that spending money on condoms today will save you big bucks later if you’re not looking to procreate, buy a minivan, and start saving for your kid’s college tuition.
