Are You A Turkey-Loving Sugar Addict? Try the TurDunkin’!

I’ve often contemplated the best way of combining my love of turkey with my love of donuts. And finally! Some industrious genius has done just that — with the TurDunkin’, a combo Thanksgiving turkey and sweet donut treat. The turkey is stuffed with bacon and Munchkins stuffing and then basted with donut glaze. It’s then coated in donut sprinkles and served alongside coffee gravy and mashed hash browns (to get the full breakfast turkey effect). We’re really thinking we might have to try this at our next Thanksgiving dinner. [Unwholesome Foods] Keep reading »

How Did You Spend Your Thanksgiving Weekend?

The only good thing about a Monday following a four-day weekend is when it coincides with mega online sales, but I’m still pretty bummed another holiday weekend is behind us and we have five work days ahead. So, let’s try to take some of the edge off and reminisce about our Thanksgiving break, shall we? (Unless yours sucked, in which case, hooray, it’s over!). So, what did you do with your long weekend? I had two of my best friends come visit and we spent the weekend eating, drinking, and being merry. I also squeezed in a Thanksgiving meal with my in-laws, a long walk from Brooklyn to Manhattan, a delicious dinner in Chinatown, and four, count ‘em, four different karaoke bars! There was also a lot of gawking at cute boys as both my (gay male) friends are newly single and lookin’. So, what about you? Did you manage to avoid family drama? Hook up with an old high school love while you were home? Hit the Thanksgiving sales? Let’s hear it. Keep reading »

Woman’s Pantyliner Causes Invasive TSA Search

We hope you’ve finished your Thanksgiving turkey, because the story we’re about to tell you — about a VERY invasive TSA search — might make you sick. An anonymous woman wrote in to the website GladRags.com to let them know about her holiday airport experience. The woman went to the airport in jeans and a T-shirt, bra and underwear — and a pantyliner. When TSA agents attempted to complete a full body scan of her, the pantyliner allegedly blocked their view, and she was subjected to a much more invasive search. Two female agents — with a male agent watching — conducted a search “so invasive that I was left crying and dealing with memories that I thought had been dealt with years ago of prior sexual assaults.” Keep reading »
