Most of us at The Frisky are originally country mice — in some cases, suburban mice — who moved to a larger city just as soon as we could. But all of us visit our families often, which means a trip back to the ‘burbs of our youth. And often while visiting family, we need to get out of the house, so we find a reason to hit the mall.

More specifically, this is what that journey of panic feels like in GIFs… Keep reading »
Job hunters, here’s one way to guarantee you will not find employment: attach a dick pic with your resume.

Of course we appreciate all the little things they do for us, but when those “favors” include things like putting our favorite dark wash jeans in the dryer or whipping us up a surprise meal that blows our calorie allowance for the month, well, it doesn’t really feel like a favor anymore. Are their happy, “Look what I did for you!” faces totally worth it? Yes, but that doesn’t mean we don’t miss the perfect fit of those jeans. Here are a few examples of kind gestures from boyfriends that, for a variety of reasons, failed to impress. Keep reading »
