What are moms reading in the carpool lane these days? Well, it’s not The Help. It’s a new trilogy called Fifty Shades, it’s notorious for its sex scenes, and it seems like every mother with a blog account is raving about it…

“In case you’re wondering why every suburban housewife from Philadelphia to Connecticut has been sending all her calls straight to voice mail. Fifty. Freaking. Shades.” – Suburbabble

“I am not in the habit of reading erotica, but this trilogy makes it seem okay, even for Westchester county. ” – StaceyKnows

“There is life in this book, outside of the bedroom, and in fact, there are even tons of ‘vanilla moments’ to make the harder stuff go down easier for some of us who might be apprehensive with these kinds of ‘scenes’.” – Maryse.net

Even moms in NYC have caught the Fifty Shades bug. According to The New York Post:

“I found myself explaining what BDSM [bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism] was to some of the moms at Saturday morning basketball,” says power publicist Alison Brod, who hails “Fifty Shades” as “the new kabbalah for female bonding in this city.”

A raunchy book that mothers across the country can’t put down? This was too intriguing to pass up, so on Tuesday night I downloaded the book for myself (lord knows I wasn’t about to read a physical copy on the subway) for $7 on Amazon.com. Keep reading »

Not only can Flo the Wonderdog do a great jump off a high-dive board, but she’s also a pro when it comes to scrambling up the diving board ladder. She’s also not afraid of the pool slide, and skitters down it like a champ. Color us impressed. [Boing Boing]

Could there be two worlds set more far apart than that of party monster baseball player Kenny Powers and the genteel universe of butlers, maids and secret eavesdropping at Downton Abbey? And yet! When the two come together, something more than magical occurs. It’ll have you wondering why it took so long for someone to sloppily edit these two TV shows together.

Look, you could choose to get really upset about the rampant objectification of women and flagrant misogyny in a movie like “Piranha 3DD.” Or, you could realize that this is a film starring David Hasselhoff and Ving Rhames — and that the latter sports a pair of prosthetic gun legs throughout. Do you really want to waste your time being mad at that? Instead, why not put on some 3-D glasses and enjoy the very top-heavy ride? I know I will. [Perez Hilton]
