Sid And Nancy Dolls?

The “Who Killed Nancy?” crocheted dolls by artist Shove Mink are adorably macabre. The perfect gift for that co-dependent couple. Or just a fun way to teach the kids about the dangers of drugs? You decide. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

“Wonder Woman XXX” Porn Parodies Threaten To Glut Oversaturated Market

It looks like the upcoming “Wonder Woman” TV show remake is going to have some competition. Because there’s gonna be a porno version. It’s called … wait for it … “Wonder Woman XXX.” Pretty much says it all, doesn’t it? It stars porn star Tori Black as the superhero who will be “kickin’ butt and takin’ names.” Also! It was written and directed by a woman, Ashlynn Brooke, who is also a porn star.

But there’s a twist! Keep reading »

The TSA: “It’s Our Business To Touch Yours”


One reason I’m grateful I don’t have to travel anywhere this holiday season is because I won’t have to deal with that new TSA pat-down policy in which some guy or gal in a uniform gets to fondle my junk in search of bombs and other fun terrorist-y stuff. “Saturday Night Live” did a pretty hilarious spoof about the new policy, as if it were one of those late-night escort service ads. Check it out above! And while you’re at it, {encode=”tips@thefrisky.com” title=”email us”} about any of your particularly interesting run-ins with a handsy TSA officer after this holiday weekend.

Woman Is Shocked To Discover Her Thanksgiving Turkey Is Pregnant


This woman is happy carving the Thanksgiving turkey … until she discovers what she thinks is a cooked fetus inside her bird. “You got a pregnant turkey!” a family member cries. Just kidding! Her husband just stuffed a Cornish game hen inside the turkey before putting it in the oven to cook. Thanksgiving pranks are the best! Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Nelly Furtado Dishes On Her New Album And Whom She’d Like To Collaborate With Next

She’s been a bird who wants to fly away. She’s been a promiscuous girl who eats men. She’s even been a Spanish-speaking songstress, waving her hands in the air. It’s hard to believe it, but it’s been 10 years since Nelly Furtado released Whoa, Nelly!, and to celebrate the anniversary, she dropped The Best Of Nelly Furtado last week. Below, Nelly sits down with The Frisky to talk about putting out a “best of” album at the young age of 31, and to give us the dirt on working with dudes like Justin Timberlake and Keith Urban.

What are the “best of” albums you listen to most often?

Caetano Veloso. He has more than one. Ironically, he’s featured on my Best Of album on the deluxe version—I have a song with him called “Island of Wonder” that we recorded for my second album in 2003. He’s got some great collections because he’s had over 30 albums. Also Mary J. Blige. Madonna. Hello, Immaculate Collection. Oasis. Keep reading »

Writer Tawni O’Dell Comes Out Swinging Against Sexist Publishing Industry

A few months ago the author Jonathan Franzen published his novel, Freedom, and among bookworms, it was like a new “Star Wars” movie being released or Angelina Jolie popping out another baby. Not only did President Obama make headlines for snagging an advanced copy to read on vacation, but Franzen made the prestigious New York Times book review not once, but twice, in a single week. That was all too much for author Jodi Picoult. “Is anyone shocked?” she tweeted, no doubt rolling her eyes. “Would love to see the Times write about authors who aren’t white male literary darlings.” Everyone weighed in with their opinion — sexism? sour grapes? — including here on The Frisky. The matter was settled, at least for moi, when the blog Slate.com did an old-fashioned author byline count of The New York Times Book Review. That publication does, in fact, review more books written by men than women.

For us lady writers at The Frisky, it was all pretty disheartening. (Kate may be the only one who has published a book thus far, but there are several of us on staff who go home and peck on our laptops some more.) Now there’s more “ugh”-ness to “ugh!” deep in our bellies: Author Tawni O’Dell penned an essay for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about her experiences navigating the publishing industry and book-reviewing culture as a female writer and they’re utterly fascinating.

I just have four words for you: “wood nymph” and “biker chick.” Keep reading »

Seasons Greetings From My Worst Nightmare

Who was the cruel being who put everything that frightens me together in one terrifying holiday card? Cat, cat with hat, man with cat, man with turtleneck. It’s like a Dr. Seuss book gone terribly wrong. I’m having an anxiety attack right now. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Bristol Palin Receives “DWTS” Death Threat

Bristol Palin is turning out to be the most controversial “Dancing With the Stars” contestant ever. People are calling “conspiracy theory” on her miraculous winning streak. A Wisconsin guy even shot at his television screaming “f**king politics” after her performance last week, which earned her a spot in the finale tonight. But that wasn’t the last of the Bristol hating. On Friday, cops were called to the “DWTS” contestant’s studio where an unidentified powdery substance was found in an envelope with a death threat. The intended target? Yep, Bristol Palin. Keep reading »

Disney Swears Off Princess Stories For The Time Being

My little nieces think I’m a nut job: They hand me Cinderella Barbie and tell me we’re going to meet Prince Charming at the ball and I’m, like, “Instead, let’s pretend Barbie is a brain surgeon! Or the first female president!” Lucky for crazy aunts like me, Disney is abstaining from princess flicks for a bit. After “Tangled,” Disney’s newest flick about Rapunzel, the company will focus on non-princess-centric movies, like “Winnie The Pooh” and “Reboot Ralph,” about a video game character who has been left behind with new technology (i.e., “Toy Story” 2.0). Two princess-related movies in development, “The Snow Queen” and “Jack and the Bean Stalk,” have also been killed.

But Disney isn’t swearing off princesses because pretty women who moon after boys all day are sucky role models for little girls. (Ha!) Rather, princess flicks, the company lamented, do not rake in enough dough. Keep reading »
