Give Me A Bear Bouquet!

Women don’t want a bouquet of roses. We want a bouquet of stuffed bears! Sure, FTD does something like this, with a bunch of flowers that have a small stuffed animal in the middle, but these bear bouquets take the concept to a whole new level. Personally, they freak me out. Apparently, the number one is lucky in Chinese culture, so there are 11 bears here, the number one doubled. But do they all stare at you with their 22 eyes while you’re sleeping? I shudder to think. [Weekly Teinou] Keep reading »

Her Hands Have Gone To Her Head

Professional hand model Ellen Sirot brings herself to orgasm while talking about her magic hands during an interview with Katie Couric. Thanks to her, I now know that the life of a hand model is a lazy and lonely one. It’s clearly caused Ellen to get a touch of the old crazy. Also, I never noticed Katie’s gorilla paws before.

Today’s Lady News: Hillary Clinton Asked, “Which Designers Do You Prefer?”

  • Speaking on a panel in Kyrgyzstan yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked by a moderator, “Which designers do you prefer?” Clinton asked, “What designers of clothes?” and the moderator answered yes. “Would you ever ask a man that question?” Clinton asked, apparently with a laugh. The moderator responded, “Probably not. Probably not.” Well-handled. [Styleite]
  • Failed Tea Party/Republican Delaware senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell — “I’m not a witch!” — has scored a book deal with St. Martin’s. [Gawker]
  • Keith Olbermann slammed Bristol Palin on a recent show, dubbing her “the worst person” for being a spokeswoman for abstinence. Bristol Bristol’s ghostwriter hastily penned a response on Facebook Notes to say “accusing me of hypocrisy is by now an old canard.” One thing is for sure: both of these people are extremely, extremely annoying.
