Sarah Palin “Refudiates” To Accept Bristol’s Wedding Plans

Sarah Palin is far less than thrilled about the reunion/engagement of Bristol and Levi. In fact, she is boycotting the wedding, should it ever actually happen. This seems strange considering that the Christian thing for Levi to do is to make a wifey out of Bristol, since they already made a baby together. I wonder if Sarah will change her tune when she finds out there may be a reality show involved? Todd, on the other hand, is down for the festivities and will be walking Bristol down the aisle. The couple is hoping that he’ll convince Sarah to show up. Maybe she’ll come if they make their reception a big, family moose hunt? [Newser, PopEater] Keep reading »

What To Do When You Toot In Public?

We’ve all been there: You’re on a date, in an interview, riding public transportation, or in some other enclosed space, and, well, your butt gets the better of you.

You’re dying, your neighbors are fuming, and you’re wondering if there’s something (anything!) you can do to prevent this embarrassing situation from ever repeating itself. Read more Keep reading »

Sarah Palin-Inspired Humor At Its Best: Shakespalin Tweeets

On Fox News and then again on Twitter, Sarah Palin used the word “refudiate.” Which, uh, doesn’t exist. But yesterday, she defended her word choice, writing on Twitter, “‘Refudiate,’ ‘misunderestimate,’ ‘wee-wee’d up.’ English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!”

Oh course, Sarah is no Shakespeare. And so some clever Twitter users created the hashtag #shakespalin, interpreting classic Shakespeare quotes through the Wasilla vernacular. After the jump, our four favorites. [Time] Keep reading »

Playboy Launches New Safe-For-Work Website Without Naked Women

Playboy Enterprises Inc. has been struggling in recent years, now that porn is everywhere you click. Sure, plenty of dudes (six million, to be exact) still visit Playboy.com every month, but they’re less likely to do so when they’re at work, what with all the naked ladies and whatnot. So, the always-thoughtful Playboy guys created a new safe-for-work website for fans of the magazine who would like their online experience with a little less nipples, please, TheSmokingJacket.com. Of course, the name of The Smoking Jacket is taken from Hef’s favorite garment worn over his omnipresent red silk pajamas. The content is a little bit Maxim and generally pretty horny-doggy, but we found it to be a bit more female-friendly than Playboy.com, where it’s all Playmates all the time. Not that we don’t like Playmates. It’s just that it can get a little crowded with that many boobs around, you know? In any case, we’ll be reading. [Yahoo! News] Keep reading »
