Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
So, yesterday was a historic amazing day, with the first African-American winning the Presidency of the United States. It was also a bit of letdown, as it became clear that much of America still doesn’t like the idea of gay people getting married. But there was more good news! Three anti-choice measures failed! Amendment 48 in Colorado, which would have granted fertilized eggs fill rights, was rejected by 73% of voters; Measure 11 in South Dakota, which would have banned abortion save a very vague medical exception, was defeated; and Proposition 4 in California, which would have required parental notification, also didn’t pass.
Come January 20, the White House will have some new residents. The highly attractive Obamas look like the cutest, most well-balanced couple ever, but it wasn’t always that way. Even this seemingly perfect couple had some hard times. Below, a run-down of Barck and Michelle’s relationship. We hope their PDAs won’t stop now that he’s been elected. Keep reading »

When we first heard about the upcoming movie “Twilight,” we were interested mainly because Robert Pattinson stars in it, and he’s extremely good looking. We had never read any of the books or heard of author Stephenie Meyer. And then we started seeing trailers for the movie, and we were even more intrigued. Now, Amelia, Annika, and I have decided to read Twilight before we see the movie, which comes out Nov. 21, and we’re starting today. There are just two-and-a-half weeks before the movie hits theaters, and the book has 498 pages, but we think it can be done, and we want you to join us! For next Wednesday, we’re reading the first 12 chapters. Come visit The Frisky on Nov. 12 to discuss it, whether you’re reading it for the first time or the seventh. Keep reading »

Campaign songs have caused more of a ruckus in this presidential race than teenage pregnancy and extra-marital affairs combined. It all started with a John scandal, when John McCain stole “Our Country” by John Cougar Mellencamp from John Edwards after he got axed in the primaries. Then, Mellencamp told McCain to stop using the track, because the liberal musician didn’t want his tune affiliated with the Republican candidate. After that, hippie balladeer Jackson Browne sued McCain’s campaign to protest the use of his “Running On Empty” in an attack ad against Barack Obama. So, we here at the Frisky decided to put together a voting day soundtrack that everyone can groove to. We might have some differences on our ballots, but our booties bump to the same beats. After the jump, The Frisky’s Election Day Mixtape. Keep reading »
