DMC Pharmacy in Chantilly, Virginia, will sell everything from cold meds to contact solution when it opens this summer, but if you want condoms, birth control pills, or any other form of contraception, you’d better head in the other direction. The “pro-life pharmacy” sticks to a strict policy of not offering its patrons contraception or anything else that “interferes” with the procreation process. Virginia doesn’t have laws which require pharmacists to dispense prescriptions written by a physician, but luckily, there are at least five other pharmacies (pro-choice ones, we guess!) within spitting distance.

The Pussycats Private Adult Entertainment business in Albany, NY, has closed after being evicted from its space in a mini-strip mall. Apparently, on the portion of the lease where the leasee states what operations will take place on the property, the Pussycats’ owner wrote “in-store modeling for clients.” And actually, when you think about it, that’s what stripping is: women modeling clothes, however tiny, for whatever client happens to be seated in front of them.

We’re so ready for the weekend, especially because today is Friday the 13th, and you never know what’s gonna happen: You might end up inside Jamie Lee Curtis’ body. But we hope you’ll come say “hi” in the Forums no matter what. Also, don’t forget that Father’s Day is Sunday. Dads need love, too.

Whenever I eat watermelon, I feel like I’m not really eating anything — watermelon is the fruit equivalent of celery. But nutrition experts say that the juicy fruit has tons of Vitamin A and C, as well as lycopene, an antioxidant that might help prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease. Oh, and spitting seeds helps develop muscles in your lips. (I made up the last one, but it seems like it could be true, doesn’t it?) [Newswise] Keep reading »
From Broadway to Hollywood, the entertainment industry is all about remakes. Most of the time, the threat is not staying true to the original (um, the upcoming Smurfs movie that’s going to be live action?!). But in the case of the I Dream of Jeannie remake, our fear is it actually resembling the misogynistic capers of the early 60’s anti-feminist classic. Now, far be it for we NASA-loving Frisky gals to smack talk an astronaut in the space program heyday. However, the fictitious Major Nelson is a totally ungrateful do-bag that Jeannie calls “master.” Ick. Plus Jeannie never gets credit for always saving the day and she clearly runs the show! Although, perhaps there’s hope for the remake to right the wrongs of the antiquated TV show. Slated to write the screenplay is Mulan’s Rita Hsaio. So fingers crossed, she’ll empower this woman too.
